Audio: Hall inductee hauls boatload of bias

by Jeremy Hooper

So what sort of radio "excellence" has earned Focus on the Family's James Dobson entrance into the National Radio Hall of Fame? Well, things like unapologetically rejecting Barack Obama's "radical" idea that gay people are normal, natch.

Here is Dobson and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Albert Mohler discussing why, exactly, the Democratic White House hopeful would ruin America with his "radical" vision of acceptance:

::sigh:: Maybe they should mark his induction with an asterisk, kinda link Barry Bond's record breaking ball? It could say something like: "*This is for his keen ability to mislead millions in supporting unfairness, and not for the wildly unsympathetic, mean-spirited, discriminatory views that forced 20th and 21st century gay Americans to fight for basic fairness"?

Think it over, Hall of Fame!

Your thoughts

I guess 'ole Dobson is a "flip flopper".

Here is what he said in a statement of February of this year, just five months ago:

“But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should John McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can’t vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life."

And today:
“I never thought I would hear myself saying this. While I am not endorsing Senator John McCain, the possibility is there that I might.”
