Dobson endorsed sermon blaming “lesbian sex” for God’s “abandonment” of America, justifying destruction of a U.S. city by God
On the June 4 edition of his Focus on the Family radio show, Focus on the Family founder and chairman James C. Dobson broadcast a sermon by John MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, titled “A Nation Abandoned by God.” In the sermon, MacArthur said America had forsaken God and engendered the “wrath of abandonment” as a result. MacArthur declared: “You know a society has been abandoned by God when it celebrates lesbian sex.” MacArthur further argued that as a result of America’s abandonment, the destruction of a major U.S. city “could happen” and that “God would be just in any calamity he brought upon us.”
According to Dobson’s co-host, John Fuller, MacArthur’s sermon was originally delivered on the National Day of Prayer, an observance established by Congress to encourage ecumenical prayer. The National Day of Prayer Task Force operates out of the offices of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and is chaired by Dobson’s wife, Shirley Dobson.
Dobson endorsed the content of MacArthur’s sermon in his introduction of the broadcast. Dobson stated:
DOBSON: Some of our listeners are not going to agree with what he [MacArthur] has to say, but it’s going to make you think, and it’s also going to be somewhat disturbing. And I happen to agree with what John MacArthur was saying on this day, and I want to thank him and his team and Woodman Valley Chapel for allowing us to share this message. It needs to be heard, especially at this time in our nation.
