Our very special guest this week is Dr. James Dobson, the chairman of Focus on the Family. Jim, there's a lot of talk in Washington about the issue of same-sex marriage. There have been various court cases pushing the nation to accept the idea that same-sex marriage should be our law. What do you think is behind this effort?
Dr. James Dobson:
Well, Mike, I think it's a joint effort between two complementary forces. First, it's of course being promoted by activist judges who see it as their mission to legislate from the bench and make the country more politically correct. Second, these judges reflect the purposes of homosexual activists who want to destroy the essentially Christian institution of marriage.
And despite what the media tells us, most homosexuals do not want to marry. Why would they bind themselves with all kinds of legal entanglements that would be inconvenient to get out of? Homosexuals are not typically monogamousas we know, research shows that the average gay individual has between 300 and 1200 partners in a lifetime.
So what homosexual activists appear to want is to undermine the legal definition of marriage and then obtain all the benefits of marriage without the commitments and obligations that go with it.
Jim, thanks so much. Tomorrow we're going to talk about the effort in Congress to protect marriage. I'm Mike Farris.
