Trying to raise my kids the best I can

Friday, October 31, 2008


James Dobson, of Focus on the Family, is a hugely influential Christian leader. His opinions are embarrassingly judgmental though. His political letters to his followers are extremely fear-based. (And I've also come to disagree with his discipline advice too). This blog does a great job of addressing one of Dobson's recent, outrageous letters.

This part in particular resounded with me:

"You make a mistake when you assume that younger Christians don’t care as much as you about the sanctity of life. They do care—very much—but they have a more consistent ethic of life. Both broader and deeper, it is inclusive of abortion, but also of the many other assaults on human life and dignity. For the new generation, poverty, hunger, and disease are also life issues; creation care is a life issue; genocide, torture, the death penalty, and human rights are life issues; war is a life issue. What happens to poor children after they are born is also a life issue."
