Echoing sentiments similar to Gov. Mike Huckabee, James Dobson took to the airwaves today to blame the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings on America not being Christian enough. Referencing abortion and the recent advances of gay marriage, he determined that this is just the price America has to pay:

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.

Why would anyone get mad at you for saying something like that, Dr. Dobson?

  1. Listen to the broadcast before you judge Dr. Dobson. He has many insightful things to say. His message is NOT that this is God’s judgement on America. His message is that this is the result of a fatherless society where divorce, child abuse, and child neglect are common place. This neglect along with societies violent and over sexualized influences has created children and adults that are capable of these murders. And in this case, Dr. Dobson simply recognizes that God allowed this to happen – He didn’t step in. His thoughts seem reasonable.

  2. ‘…Everyone responsible theologian should admit this…

    Correction: every theologian who agrees with you should admit this.
