Dr. James Dobson is warning parents to watch out for attacks on religious freedom and school assignments in which children are asked about their sexuality without parental consent.
Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk radio, touched upon various concerns he has about religious freedom in his August newsletter that was released earlier this week.
He started off with a warning from history, noting that he has wondered “how highly educated and intelligent Germans could have been so corrupted and deceived by the propaganda that lay the foundation for tyranny” that led to World War II.
“It is still difficult to comprehend how so many Christian churches with their good people fell prey to the lies screamed by Adolf Hitler and his evil cohorts,” he wrote.
“Even before he revealed his murderous intentions, they stood with their arms and hands extended, cheering rabidly for a man who was to become one of the most ruthless dictators in world history.”
He later explained that although America is not yet suffering under “Nazi-like tyranny,” citizens are “steadily being expected to think, speak, write, and act in a prescribed manner in conformity with what is now called ‘political correctness.’”
The author and psychologist examined the amendments guaranteeing freedom in the Bill of Rights, and strongly criticized Americans, including Christians, who don’t vote in elections.
“Shame on them all! Don’t they know that tyranny for us and our children is only one generation, or even one election, away?” he declared.
“We must vote, vote, vote to elect leaders who will defend what has been purchased with the blood of patriots who died to protect our liberty. We owe it to the memory of their sacrifice to preserve what they did for us.”
Dobson also listed examples of laws and actions that he said have gone against America’s principles, such as abortion on demand and the 2015 Supreme Court decision that banned states from prohibiting same-sex marriage.
