And more from Mullah Dobson,<$NoAd$> from The Daily Oklahoman
, Oct. 23rd, 2004 ...
Dobson warned those attending the Friday afternoon rally at Oklahoma Christian University that the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman must be protected.
He cited examples of countries such as Norway that have allowed same-sex couples to marry as proof that fewer men and women get married. Dobson said 80 percent of children are born out of wedlock in Norway.
âHomosexuals are not monogamous. They want to destroy the institution of marriage,â Dobson said.
âIt will destroy marriage. It will destroy the Earth.â
Dobson urged rally attendees to reach out to homosexuals and âbring them to Jesus.â
He also urged supporters in attendance to fast and pray on the Thursday and weekend before the Nov. 2 election and to go to the polls to elect Coburn to the Senate.
Dobson said a vote for Carson, âeven if you think heâs right,â would be a vote for U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D.; Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass.; and Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont.
âPatrick Leahy is a âGodâs peopleâ hater,â Dobson said.
âI donât know if he hates God, but he hates Godâs people.â
Dobson said Coburn was exactly the kind of senator Oklahoma needs.
âI am passionate in my support of Dr. Tom Coburn,â Dobson said.
âThis man absolutely has to be sent back to Washington.â
Also on hand to support Coburn, U.S. Rep. Ernest Istook, R-Warr Acres, said more lawmakers who believe in âthe divine origins of the countryâ are needed.
Mullah James Dobson, as Andrew Sullivan described him
, "the social policy director of the Bush administration."
And as for this 'mullah' issue
, most folks who wrote in didn't seem to catch that I had already tipped my hand when I wrote that I was "mulling" the question. But everyone who wrote in seemed to agree that it wasn't a problem. One interesting suggestion though was that we might prefer the more precise and non-sectarian phrases sometimes used in the media to describe the sundry Dobsonites and Dobsonians of the Middle East.
So for instance, we might say "radical cleric James Dobson." Or since, Dobson is not himself a man of the cloth, we might say 'radical cleric Pat Robertson.'
