James Dobson makes National Day of Prayer into a sad mockery

As a person of faith, I think the idea of a National Day of Prayer is a great idea for those who want to participate. HOWEVER, I also think that the hands of Shirley Dobson and her husband, James, should be kept off of planning it.

Sorry for those who disagree but based upon the following video,  James Dobson comes across as a zealot from the Middle Ages railing at so-called heretics because he isn't allowed to imprison them. I see no sincerity or humility from this man, only a public display of his ego as he spins ludicrous fear stories:

If James Dobson wants to think that he sits on the right hand of God, that's his right. But there shouldn't be a national day, or anything else, designed to indulge his madness. Especially not a day designed to getting all people of faith, whether they be lgbts or heterosexual, Christians, Jewish, Muslims, etc. together to appeal to God.

'Sorry guys. The anti-gay right isn't going ANYWHERE' & other Thursday midday news briefs

The Supreme Court might legalize gay marriage. But that won’t stop opponents from pushing anti-gay laws. - I am going to sound gloomy today but it needs to be said. IF the Supreme Court rules for marriage, it is not an ending, but the beginning of a new dimension in this so-called culture war. And my question is the lgbt community prepared to learn new skills or underestimate our opponent, play catch up, and fondly reminisce about antiquated tactics like we seem to always do?

Meet The Anti-LGBT Legal Scholars Defending "Religious Freedom" Laws - Here is an idea. KNOW your opponent. Study their tactics. Learn their weaknesses and exploit them. 

 Rubio Headlines Fundraiser For Policy Group That Supports Conversion Therapy - HERE is a given. Sen. Marco Rubio likes to claim that folks like him who oppose marriage equality are unfairly bullied. This proves how much of a hypocrite he is. Why is Rubio supporting a group which believes in the fraudulent "ex-gay" therapy. It's a good question TO ASK HIM or put out in public.  

10 Queer Things You Couldn't Have Seen On TV 10 Years Ago - I will admit that at first, I thought this list would be tripe. However, it is actually a good history on how far the lgbt community have come. 

 Judge Tosses Lawsuit By Nebraska Woman Suing 'All Homosexuals' On Behalf Of Jesus - DARN! No Alexis Carrington courtroom entrance for me.
