Family Research Council Founder had ‘black cloud’ over same-sex marriage decision
Family Research Council Founder James Dobson has given his reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex marriage is constitutional in June.
Dobson, who also founded Family Research Council, spoke candidly in an interview with Christian evangelical televangelist Andrew Womack on “The Gospel Truth” as reported by People For the American Way’s “Right Wing Watch.”
Dobson stated that he felt like he was in a “black cloud” when the announcement was made.
“It hit me like a ton of bricks,” Dobson says. “What had hit me is that that decision is not really about gay marriage. it’s about everything else.”
Dobson vaguely described how he thought same-sex marriage would lead to negative effects on all aspects of life.
“We lost the entire culture war with that one decision,” Dobson says. “It’s going to touch every dimension.”
As Womack nodded along in agreement Dobson continued on about his fear about same-sex marriage.
“It’s about control of the public schools and it’s what happens in universities,” Dobson says.” It’s about the economy and it’s about business and it’s about the military and it’s about medicine. It’s about everything.”
