"Our country really does seem in complete disarray," Dobson said today, as Right Wing Watch reports:
I'm not talking politically, I'm not talking about the result of the November sixth election;Â I am saying that something has gone wrong in America and that we have turned our back on God.
I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn't exist, or he's irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition.Â Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.
And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us.Â I think that's what's going on.
Dobson joins many in the Christian right who are claiming a rejection of God is the reason for the Sandy Hook shooting. Mike HuckabeeÂ just hours after Friday's tragedy said theÂ Newtown, Connecticut massacre happened because â€œweâ€™ve systematically removed God from our schools.â€
Dobson, considered to be a powerful Evangelical leader, founded Focus on the Family in 1977, and in 1981 founded theÂ Family Research Council, which was certified as an anti-gay hate group in 2010. He remainsÂ chairman emeritus ofÂ Focus on the Family.
Focus On The Family during the 2008 election issued a 34-point â€œLetter from 2012â€³ that predicted how terrible America would become if Barack Obama were elected. None of the predictions became true.
