Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Hysterical James Dobson Says Democrats Are Out to Enslave Christians

james dobson

A few days ago, on May 17, Democrats in the House of Representatives passed what they call The Equality Act of 2019, which is breathtaking in its scope. If it survives a vote in the Senate, this legislation will represent one of the most egregious assaults on religious liberty ever foisted on the people of this great nation. It therein imposes a thinly veiled death-sentence to the First Amendment to the Constitution and takes away the protections against tyranny handed down to us by our Founding Fathers. It was this unyielding commitment to religious liberty that led to American Revolutionary War from 1775 to 1783. The pastors and the patriots of that day died to free themselves from British imperialism. Thank God for the men who stood courageously against the most powerful military in the world, because freedom meant more to them than their own lives.

Let me speak candidly and passionately to people of faith throughout these United States of America. We must not remain silent as our historic liberties are gutted by Democrats and their friends in the LGBT movement. They will enslave us if they prevail. We must let our voices be heard, first in the U.S Senate, and then to the world.

Viva liberty. Viva the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Viva biblical values and beliefs. And woe to those who would try to take them from us.

    Christians are already enslaved to their own ridiculous beliefs. Their brains are partially shut down because they don’t allow themselves to think if that thinking leads them away from what they have been taught they MUST believe.

    Methinks Mr. Dobson doth protest too much regarding becoming a slave to the LBGTQ community…..

    These evangelicals really are terrified of not being able to oppress gay people.

    Since when was the Revolutionary War about religious liberty? Silly me, I thought it was more about “taxation without representation” and things like that. Religious liberty sure isn’t mentioned in that old paper, The Declaration of Independence.

    If it had been up to John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence would not have mentioned god at all. Many of the Founding Fathers were Deists. The Reverend John Witherspoon of New Jersey was a Presbyterian and Lyman Hall of Georgia had been a Congregationalist pastor.

    Don’t worry. Be happy. Considering Dobson’s age, he should be dead and gone by natural causes any day now.

    Christian fundamentalists fear two things even more than they do the wrath of God:

    (1) Sociocultural marginalization in this present world

    (2) Annihilation of their religious belief system and their unique fundie subculture, which they conflate with their religious belief system in this present world.

    If you want to truly frighten a fundie out of his or her wits in your speech or writing, all you have to do is seriously raise up those two specters before their eyes—and convince them that it really could happen. Be sure to point out to them the many instances in the Old Testament where God waited hundreds of years to rescue his Jewish people and how many faithful Jews got themselves marginalized or dead before God came to the rescue. If I recall correctly, the Jewish bondage in ancient Egypt,beginning right after Joseph, lasted for 500 years before God finally noticed and decided to intervene. Can you imagine the amount of suffering and death that occurred in that 500 years.

    By the way, I am a professional archaeologist. just in case you are wondering, archaeologists have never found a shred of archaeological evidence that Jews were ever held captive in ancient Egypt. Jewish people are well known for maintaining their cultural distinctiveness, and it should show up in distinctive Jewish female pottery-making traditions. To the best of my knowledge, no such ceramic evidence has ever been found in Egypt. I have always wondered when real Jewish history in the Middle East actually began—and where.

    Many Christian scholars believe most of Genesis and some of Exodus were just traditional oral folklore, like American Indian Folklore, that was passed down from one Jewish generation to another orally. Then in the Davidic period, Jewish oral story tellers were invited into the offices of government where scribes were ordered to write the stories down on papyrus. One reason they know Moses did not write those books is because the earliest manuscripts are written in Davidic Hebrew rather than an earlier version of the Jewish language—like the difference between modern English and King James English. Of course, a Christian fundamentalist would deny everything I have said here because it is all they know how to do in the face of numerous things that put the lie to what they believe. O-oo-oo-ooo!!! Run away.
