Dobson: Pastors to Die in Prison

James Dobson is continuing his almost spotless record of being wrong about everything and of selling fear without evidence to his credulous followers. During a conversation with Greg Laurie on his radio show, he said that pastors are rightly afraid of being arrested and dying in prison:

Dobson: If I’m reading the mood of the American people at this time, especially Christians, there is great concern for the welfare of our nation. I think more than I’ve ever seen in my adult lifetime. One pastor whom you would know, I won’t name him, he said to me this week, ‘we’re losing ground morally all the time,’ and he said, ‘I’ve told my people get ready for persecution because it’s coming, it’s coming to everyone who is a vocal believer in Jesus Christ,’ and he said that he really expects to end his life in prison. I don’t know if you would put it that way but are you also aware of a growing anxiety or angst that’s out there at this time?

Laurie: Well there is no question Dr. Dobson that there is a complete, total moral meltdown happening in our country and it seems to be happening at an accelerated rate right now, almost shockingly so. This is due to just a lack of knowing God. I think the only ultimate thing that could turn our country around right now is a revival, we need an awakening and we’ve had them in our nation in the past when things also were very dark and we need another one.

Yes, everyone who is a “vocal believer in Jesus Christ” is going to be arrested. Under what law, exactly? Oh, those are just details. Dobson’s job is to keep scaring people so they keep sending him money. The facts simply do not matter.

    Well, in a way I wish his message — like this one — were (much) more widely heard. Does that count?

    …a complete, total moral meltdown…

    Yup, there’s people standing up to their bullying and they don’t like it one bit.

    Reading this kind of stuff gives me an idea of what sort of people call 900 numbers and pay to hear someone promise to fuck them up the ass and piss on them after the money shot–all while verbally abusing them. I know that my example has a pretty high “ewwwwwwwwwwwww” factor but it’s WAY under the one that accompanies every single post, article or “sermon” about teh GAY by these assholes.

    Yes, they are fear mongers, but I think the ones like Dobson are genuinely afraid. I think it is dawning on them that they are not going to make near as much money off the kids as they did off the parents. They might have to sell the mansion in the end. That may seem like prison to a man like Dobson.

    Why, yes, I am smiling.

    Entertainment standards are much higher now (or at least much more demanding), so the old-fashioned hoarse preacher yelling in a tent isn’t going to do it this time. People would be stifling yawns and peeking at their smart phones. Jesus has a lot more competition these days and he’s just not cutting edge. Of course, I am neglecting the impact of divine intervention and spiritual inspiration (mostly because they don’t exist).

    I honestly believe that jesus-fanatics like dobson are creaming their jeans with the thoughts of these persecution scenarios much in the same way the NRA whackjobs are hoping for the situtation to arise where they get to blow away jack-booted thugs from the government, much like those that Timothy McVeigh got to kill.

    It’s probably a bad sign that I saw the headline and immediately thought, “Then let them do so, and thereby decrease the surplus population.”

    Sure.

    1. Dobson’s afraid that he won’t make as much money. He has become very wealthy pushing hate, lies, and fear.

    2. Afraid that no one will listen to him any more. Which has already happened. His Focus on Hating Everyone has had seveal rounds of layoffs and a big fall in money intake. Dobson himself was pushed out as head.

  9. D. C. Sessions says

    Dobson’s afraid that he won’t make as much money.

    I doubt that money, per se, is really his primary motivation. He’s well past the point where it becomes just another tool for power, and he’s rather obviously hooked on power.

    US xianity is dying and even the fundies have figured it out.

    And all they can think of to do is double down on the crazy. More of what caused the decline in the first place isn’t going to work. Both the Catholic church and the SBC have explicit plans to “go back to basics”. Meaning the Dark Ages I guess.

    There is however, a rival and an awakening in the USA though. People are waking up to the fact that religion poisons everything. That hate, lies, and hypocrisy aren’t much of a basis for a value system. That the Invisible Sky Monster is most likely the Imaginary Sky Monster.

    Dobson defines “knowing gawd” as a good ole’ fashioned spanking. Maybe I’ll get to know gawd tonight!

    @Larry:

    A significant number of Timmy Mac’s “enemies” were JackStride-Rited toddlerthugs.

    @ cry4turtles:

    I’m sorry, at least 24 hours notice is required for Dr. Dobson’s “House call” service.

  13. abb3w says

    The main reason pastors go to prison in the US these days seems to be tax fraud. Is this dude hinting at something?

  14. gridironmonger says

    Certain pastors should fear spending the rest of their lives in prison — the ones who mess around with kids. Is his friend confessing to be one of those?

    lofgren (#11) and cry4turtles (@12) – maybe little of both, if they are really, really good boys! *

  16. mvemjsun says

    If preachers are ever put in jail it would be for fraud or bieng a pedophile. Many of them, especioally the famous ones, are guilty of one or both of those crimes.

  17. iangould says

    Many of them probably belong in prison for fraud.

    But even Jim Bakker only served a few years IIRC.

    FTFY.

    Well, I agree with him on something.
