Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
No, children should be taught how to think, not what to think. If we teach them that way, they are clones of their parents in so many ways.
My observation is that women are merely waiting for their husbands to assume leadership.
Stupid misogynist! No woman lives to be subservient to their husbands!
One of the problems with sex education... is that it also strips kids - especially girls - of their modesty to have every detail of anatomy, physiology and condom usage made explicit.
Oh yes, better they make a mistake and have sex and get a disease than learn about it before hand and not die young! Education harms girls? Right, I notice he didn't speak of how it harms boys. And I have read the whole letter, it doesn't!
State Universities are breeding grounds, quite literally, for sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV), homosexual behavior, unwanted pregnancies, abortions, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
Again, educating yourself is bad bad bad! These schools, you may learn yo self, but all the sin is just bad bad bad!
"What is needed is a central registry through which violations of religious freedom can be reported. Henceforth, Focus on the Family will serve as the repository of that information, which will later be reported."
Theocracy in the making. Focus on the Family essentially promotes theocratic tyranny with itself at the head.
"One issue concerned the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, which has worried me for years. I devoted a portion of my letter in January 1993, and again in July 1994, to the threat posed by this dangerous document. More than 150 countries around the world have already adopted it within their borders."
This should bother everyone. This law is for giving children rights and freedoms in the world, yet a "family" organization is against it.
"We have tried unsuccessfully, but valiantly, to keep President Clinton from permitting homosexuals in the military and from assigning women to combat situations. We have fought for the unborn child...."
They have fought valiantly to ensure that those not in line with the right wing christian conservative world view are equally discriminated against!
"...the obvious question to ask is, `What can we do to derail this gender feminism juggernaut?' I would make four suggestions which I sincerely hope my readers will implement."
Again with the woman thing. Why do all these fundamentalists have problems with women having equal rights? Why is allowing women to make choices about themselves without the need of a man a bad thing?
Dobson is a stain on humanity and would destroy the "family" with his ludicrous religious harmful dogma he calls psychology. Whats worse, he condones child abuse in certain situations, divorcing your wife if she won't submit, and forcing those not Christian to live apart from the rest as not to contaminate us with their "sin". He is one that believes we should be a country run by the church, the "true church" as he says, and that our constitution should force a strict fundamentalist Christian way of life. He is one of the scary ones, and one of the ones with power. Ignore him at our own peril!
