B'backing Dobson: Kansas Sen wishes to honor head Family Focuser

by Jeremy Hooper

Oh, get ready for this one. Sam Brownback, arguably the U.S. Senate's most gay-unfriendly member, has proposed a new resolution. It's sole purpose, you ask? To congratulate Focus on the Family's James Dobson for his recent induction into the National Radio Hall of Fame!

No, we're not joking:

200901141826-1

Okay, we'll accept it. But only if we can make a few amendments:

Whereas James Dobson has caused immeasurable pain for LGBT people

Whereas Focus on the Family has convinced multiple generations of parents to reject their gay kids

Whereas FOF's "ex-gay" programs have shamed millions into believing they are broken

Whereas FOF's finances have fueled anti-LGBT measures in multiple states, staining several constitutions with discrimination

Whereas James Dobson, through his "culture war" activities, has thoroughly polarized this nation, presenting us all as if we exist in "good" and "evil" camps

Whereas FOF's attempt to foist church into state has threatened this nation's civil liberties

Whereas the American public has a right to know this extremely pertinent, anti-certain-families yin to the "pro-family" yang: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved
that the United States Senate acknowledge he who has worked so hard to make gayness seem like a "Sin, it," but only after they accurately enter into the record all of hurtful repercussions that his life's work has had on certain communities of people!

There, that's better. Feingold, Kennedy, Wyden -- you wanna get our backs?
