Christian radio host and family values guru Dr James Dobson is not yet ready to give up his campaign against gays. Despite resigning from Focus on the Family last year, he has now announced that he is launching a rival organization and radio show.
Dobson told fans that “the institution of the family continues to be in deplorable condition, and children are growing up in a culture that often twists and warps their young minds.”
He will launch his new ministry, James Dobson on the Family, with his son, Ryan. Religion historian Randall Balmer told the Colorado Springs Gazette he thought Dobson was setting up the parallel organization because he wanted to “pass the mantle on to his son.” A divorce in 2001 reportedly ruled out Ryan from working for Focus on the Family.
