James Dobson, the founder of the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, has an answer as to why the Newtown massacre occurred: gays and abortions. In a podcast on his Monday morning radio show, Dr. Dobson said that we are all facing judgement because we’ve turned our backs on God.
“Our country really does seem in complete disarray. I’m not talking politically, I’m not talking about the result of the November sixth election; I am saying that something has gone wrong in America and that we have turned our back on God.
I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition. Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.
And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us. I think that’s what’s going on.”
Dobson has joined the ranks of others who are blaming the Sandy Hook massacre on social political issues. Tennessee pastor Sam Morris blamed public schools because they teach “junk about evolution” and “how to be a homo.”
