James Dobson Says the Connecticut Shooting Is God's Judgement Upon America Because of Abortion and Gay Marriage
So God murders six and seven year olds in retaliation for the murders of unborn babies? OK, makes sense...only if you're a colossal mental case like Dobson

When I said in my 2012 Fraud of the Year winner posting on Monday that "rest assured that more tales of lunacy from the religious will be coming soon and with full force. If it is one thing that can be guaranteed in this life, that is there is no shortage of religious loons and their insane rants", I didn't think the insanity would rear its head so quickly. Fortunately, James Dobson doesn't disappoint.
Radio host and Christian whackjob James Dobson has single-handedly made sense of the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut last Friday, which claimed the lives of 20 six and seven year old children. According to Dobson, these beautiful innocent children were gunned down by a deranged lunatic because God is allowing judgement to fall upon America because of gay marriage and abortion.
Dobson said this:
"I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition. Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.
And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us. I think that’s what’s going on."
I cannot even begin to imagine the degree of cognitive deterioration that is required for a human being to not only speak these words, but to think them. This alone proves that Christians are mentally ill and they believe the god they worship is a vindictive, monstrous barbarian. This means that if Dobson's conclusion is true, God is unjust and not omniscient, as many Christians believe.
Where am I wrong on this? Dobson is saying that the practice of abortion and gay marriage in this country has angered God so much that he has chosen to send his judgement upon us in the form of slaughtering elementary schoolchildren. How is this just? How is this all-wise? What sense does it make to Dobson and his ilk that God would retaliate for the murders of unborn babies by murdering 20 six and seven year old children?
That only proves that God is not just, because a just God would bestow his judgement on the United States Supreme Court for the practice of abortion and on state lawmakers for the practice of gay marriage, not innocent schoolchildren. It proves that God is not all-wise, because an omniscient God would know the difference between government lawmakers and schoolchildren.
If James Dobson's god is in the business of murdering innocent schoolchildren for the sins of our government lawmakers, then Dobson can take his evil, deranged and sadistic god and shove him up his ass.
As far as I'm concerned, Dobson has earned his portion of this year's Fraudie for being one of this year's religious loons.
Listen to this sick fuck
