Dr. James Dobson Urges Parents to Stop 'the Super Bowl Shoulder Shrug' and Protect Children from 'Adopt[ing] an Unhealthy and Dishonoring View of Women and Sexuality'

February 4, 2020 — The following quote may be attributed to Dr. James Dobson, President of the James Dobson Family Institute, regarding the hypersexualized Super Bowl:

 

 

"On Sunday, Fox Sports and the NFL offered up a sexual smorgasbord, and the halftime show was the main course.

"In the last two days, I've seen outrage from a few select commentators and Christians. But overwhelmingly, I've witnessed the Super Bowl shoulder shrug. Responses range from the timid justification, 'it wasn't that bad,' to the defiant proclamation, 'it's a celebration of Latino culture.'

"Let me be clear: pole dancing, sex simulation, and crotch shots are not a celebration of Latino culture; they are a celebration of our hypersexualized culture. I regret the need to be so graphic, but have we collectively lost our minds? Objectifying women—whether they willingly participate or not—is wrong. Failing to oppose such an affront to women is equally blameworthy.

"Parents, are you content to allow your children to be swept into this abyss? How many of you sat open-eyed and close-mouthed as your children partook of this sex-saturated show? How many of you are allowing your children to adopt an unhealthy and dishonoring view of women and sexuality? The Bible proclaims that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in God's image, created for relationship with our Creator. That message isn't coming from our society… is it coming from you?

"We should demand better from the NFL, networks, sponsors and entertainers. But may God help us if we don't first demand more from ourselves as parents and as citizens. We have the truth and we must stand for it."

Our Rights: From God or Government?

"… but the thing that unites them as Christian nationalists—not Christians by the way, because Christian nationalist is very different—is that they believe that our rights as Americans, as all human beings, don't come from any earthly authority, they don't come from Congress, they don't come from the Supreme Court; they come from God," Heidi Przybyla, MSNBC investigative reporter.

What Would the Presidents Say?

February is the month when two of our greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were born. Both of these great men loved America and loved God. I suppose they would be called "Christian Nationalists" today—and it would not be meant as a compliment. Here are just two quotes of what they thought about God and America.
