James Dobson, Shut Up.
Prior to leaving for college, someone gave me Dr. Dobson's book, Life on the Edge. The book offers practical advice for young people trying to navigate through life unaffected by less than moral decision making. Dr. Dobson was revered in my household, the church I grew up in, and the university I attended. And though I fear excommunication for what I am about to say, or actually already said, I must say it: Dr. Dobson, Shut UP.
I try to stay out of politics on this blog because I don't think all of you smart people really give a hoot what Mr. McNamar from The Daily Grind thinks about politics. But I am tired of influential people like Dr. Dobson attempting to speak as if his beliefs always are from God.
If Dr. Dobson would rather not vote because both candidates, or one, does not have the exact same beliefs on abortion or gay marriage or whatever other non-issue he is preaching against, then should anyone really be listening to him? Yet, there he is, on cnn.com getting coverage.
