Family Research Council Founder James Dobson has given his reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex marriage is constitutional in June.

Dobson, who also founded Family Research Council, spoke candidly in an interview with Christian evangelical televangelist Andrew Womack on “The Gospel Truth”  as reported by People For the American Way’s “Right Wing Watch.”

Dobson stated that he felt like he was in a “black cloud” when the announcement was made.

“It hit me like a ton of bricks,” Dobson says. “What had hit me is that that decision is not really about gay marriage. it’s about everything else.”

Dobson vaguely described how he thought same-sex marriage would lead to negative effects on all aspects of life.

“We lost the entire culture war with that one decision,” Dobson says. “It’s going to touch every dimension.”

As Womack nodded along in agreement Dobson continued on about his fear about same-sex marriage.

“It’s about control of the public schools and it’s what happens in universities,” Dobson says.” It’s about the economy and it’s about business and it’s about the military and it’s about medicine. It’s about everything.”

  • Those of us in favor of LGBT equality and marriage equality have been saying that it’s about every aspect of our lives, not just our personal or private relationships, for a half century.

    Yes, being treated as equal citizens DOES impact every aspect of our lives. This should not be news to Dobson. If that’s only just now sinking in, better late then never, but it simply proves he’s never listened to the people his actions were affecting.

    Instead of wasting his life attacking others, he could have been spending it working so that everyone treated their neighbors the way they want to be treated. But that appears to be a new idea to him as well.

  • I never dreamed I would agree with James Dobson on anything.
