From World Net Daily:
"Dr. James Dobson, who founded the highly influential groups Focus on the Family and Family Research Council and now runs Family Talk Radio,
is warning that if the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage as
analysts predict, the ruling will presage the “fall of Western
“I do not recall a time when the institutions of marriage and the
family have faced such peril, or when the forces arrayed against them
were more formidable or determined,” he writes in a letter distributed
to his hundreds of thousands of supporters.
“Barring a miracle, the family that has existed since antiquity will
likely crumble, presaging the fall of Western civilization itself. This
is a time for concerted prayer, divine wisdom and greater courage than
we have ever been called upon to exercise,” he writes."
Dr. Dobson, I have a lot of respect for you and for your work. I do not doubt your sincerity. But with all due respect sir, western civilization has already fallen. To be sure, it went down the tubes in Eurpoe some time ago and it is just finishing up here, but the West is finished as Christian culture.
The problem is the nation you live in and the church's support of government policy since the end of world war II. When the United States government chose the path of empire after that war, that is when your trouble began sir. The US could have disarmed at the end of the war, but instead we decided to create socialist governments in Europe and Japan and rebuild those nations. The Marshall plan in Europe and the work of McArthur in the Pacific created an amazing economic engine, but it also lead to the state of affairs we have today. The Church in America supported these plans and the work of our government in these areas as the Christian thing to do. We thought we were keeping godless communism out of western Europe and Japan. We did succeed in that, but we created socialist amoral nightmares instead. We sent no missionaries. We did not spread the gospel in these areas. The result was freedom from both communism and God. Europe is a post Christian wasteland. Japan has a moral society, but it is not a Christian one.
Now that America is adopting the same socialist policies and using government authority to redefine marriage and family, you seem surprised. Brother Dobson, the Church surrendered years ago to this government and the evil growing within. We stood by as the socialists captured American universities. We stood by while Eisenhower, a Republican president and WWII hero, appointed socialist judges to the Supreme Court. We watched as LBJ and Nixon did the same thing. We watched while Nixon disengaged us from the gold standard and expanded the scope and power of the federal government more than FDR or any Democrat in history. We lent our support to a government bent on waging unwinnable wars in Asia and the middle east for the enrichment of corporations.
Dr Dobson you baffle me. How can you cry out about the fall of the West when our churches and families are in much the same condition as the nation they live in? I assume you pay your taxes sir? You realize of course that when you do that you are paying for someone else's abortions and cluster bombs that will annihilate families half way across the globe. This is the government that you have supported for so long.
Why is it only now that you recognize the fallen state of our nation? Is it merely the last straw or what is it? Could it be the specter of same sex couples having families? Is that it? Is it their invasion into the Church? What is it Dr Dobson?
All empires fall. The same thing will happen to the United States. It may not be now, but it will happen. Whenever it happens Dr Dobson, you will be powerless to stop it.
Civilized Christian behavior in the west is disappearing. The culture is overwhelmingly nihilist. We must now work in that godless vacuum.
The problem Dr. Dobson is that we have been wasting all that time telling people how they should behave in our Christian world when they were not Christians. They saw us as bitter, angry, hateful, controlling and self righteous. We did not present the love and grace of Jesus Christ to them. We did not offer them His salvation. We only gave them rules to live by. Is it any wonder they hate us and are turning against our way of life?
This cannot be fixed now. It's too late. Instead of screaming that you will be civilly disobedient, you need to begin preparation. Preparation for Christian persecution. Do not waste time protesting. The time to get ready is now Dr Dobson.
The West has Fallen.
