NOM's hurtful voices: 'Civil equality could lead to bestiality' edition

by Jeremy Hooper

DobieIn 2006, Pastor Ron Dobie painted loving, same-sex relationships as being just a hop, skip, and a bark away from bestiality:

'The homosexual lifestyle is not a healthy lifestyle,' he says. 'Homosexuality has never been accepted by any society that I know of. [Gay marriage] would be a huge step away from what traditionally has been true. If we do that, I don't think we have any basis to say polygamy is wrong, or bestiality is wrong.' [The Daily Page]

Yesterday in Madison, Dobie was speaking on behalf of the National Organization For Marriage at one of their (poorly attended) summer tour stops:

Dobie-NOMPastor Ron Dobie of Christ the King Community Church spoke about “the power of marriage,” telling the audience that “It’s a costly adventure to change marriage.” Marriage is about responsibility and covenant – not convenience.

We've yet to see video from yesterday's stop, so we can't say whether or not Dobie worked his slippery slope arguments at the NOM gig. Though considering the string of "ex-gay"-supporting, off-message figures that NOM's been booking on this summer tour, we think it's Maggie and Brian who might wanna consider their group's own potential to move into the rhetorical doghouse.
