Radical Cleric James Dobson speaks again

Radical cleric Jame Dobson, of Focus on the Family, equated Supreme Court judges (or maybe judges in general) to the Klu Klux Klan on Monday in his daily address. The address, entitled "Unmasking Judicial Tyranny", has this most interesting quote.
I heard a minister the other day talking about the great injustice and evil of the men in white robes, the Ku Klux Klan, that roamed the country in the South and they did great wrong to civil rights to and to morality and now we have black-robed men.
Don't believe me?

If you are like me and totally offended that James Dobson has equated the 9 most powerful judges in the land to a bunch of fearmongering bigots, why not send him an e-mail? Focus on the Family has a comments section. Click on "send us a comment" and send them your thoughts. Might I offer up a portion of my e-mail to them?

Dear Dr. Dobson,

On your Monday show you equated the Supreme Court with the Klu Klux Klan. This analogy is wrong on many levels and I don't believe I need to go into how the 7 men and 2 women of the Supreme Court share nothing in common with the Klu Klux Klan except the robe wearing. However, as a spokesmen for Christians, and therefore Jesus, I find it completely objectionable that you disregard the commandment in Hebrews 13:17 to "obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account."

What kind of example does that show the disbelieving world? What kind of example does that show to disrespectful children? If you don't like someone or what they believe it is okay to demonize them and equate them with evil? It is a horrible example Dr. Dobson. I don't expect you to be perfect, but you made a mistake and you should ask for forgiveness.


Go on, send him a comment. Feel free to copy and paste mine. Dr. Dobson owes the public servants on the Supreme Court an apology. Let him know you expect him to offer one.
