James Dobson + Franklin Graham = bigots obsessing about 'gays recruiting children' & bisexual orgies

Franklin Graham
Two virulent homophobic religious leaders, Franklin Graham and James Dobson, recently got together to talk about lgbt issues and its a miracle that the microphone didn't melt.
What you are about to hear is a serious reason why the media needs to practice discernment in deciding who to anoint as "go-to" religious leaders in this country. I mean I know they can find folks, shall we say, less "obsessive" about the lgbt community:

James Dobson
On his radio program today, Dobson played excerpts from his discussion with Graham at the event, in which called for Christians to keep their kids away from gay people and to take over school boards across the nation in order to remove gay-friendly programs.

 "We have allowed the Enemy to come into our churches," Graham said. "I was talking to some Christians and they were talking about how they invited these gay children to come into their home and to come into the church and that they were wanting to influence them. And I thought to myself, they're not going to influence those kids; those kids are going to influence those parent's children." "What happens is we think we can fight by smiling and being real nice and loving," he continued.

 "We have to understand who the Enemy is and what he wants to do. He wants to devour our homes. He wants to devour this nation and we have to be so careful who we let our kids hang out with. We have to be so careful who we let into the churches. You have immoral people who get into the churches and it begins to effect the others in the church and it is dangerous."

 Graham then went on to lament that "homosexuality is taught to be okay" in schools and "that is why I want to get the school boards back" before insisting that he loves gays and therefore feels obligated to tell them that "you cannot stay gay and call yourself a Christian." That eventually promoted Dobson to rail against the entire LGBT agenda by once again absurdly misunderstanding bisexuality. "You know what the 'B' stand for?" Dobson asked. "Bisexual. That's orgies! That is lots of sex with lots of people!" 

These aren't religious beliefs. These are lies and prejudice obscured by the cloth of Christianity and covered up by the Bible. It's no different than an anti-Semitic claiming that "Jews killed Jesus" or a racist using the story of the Tower of Babel to justify segregation and the New Testament to justify slavery.

Regardless of what their religious beliefs are about homosexuality, the need to prop it up with horror stories about recruiting gays children and bisexuals getting into orgies more than proves the fact that behind the facade they put up, Dobson and Graham are two very nasty charlatans.

They are Christianity's real problem, and not the lgbt community.
