Stop The Radio Hall of Fame from Honoring Anti-Gay Bigot James Dobson

"TruthWinsOut.org (TWO) launched a campaign to keep Focus on the Family founder James Dobson out of the Radio Hall of Fame. The Museum of Broadcast Communications nominated the anti-gay leader even though Dobson has been accused of distorting research and smearing gay and lesbian people for political gain. For example, Dobson told The Daily Oklahoman on Oct. 23, 2004, “Homosexuals are not monogamous. They want to destroy the institution of marriage. It will destroy marriage. It will destroy the Earth.”

Sign the Truth Wins Out Petition!

"To fight back against this offensive decision, TWO strongly urges fair-minded people to take three actions. First, sign TWO’s formal request to have James Dobson removed from consideration.

Second, contact Museum of Broadcast Communications CEO Bruce DuMont directly, brucedumont@museum.tv, to express your displeasure.

Third, as an option, vote for nominees other than James Dobson or Laura Schlessinger (the general public may vote, and the other nominees are Bob Costas and Howard Stern). It is urgent to act now, as voting comes to a close on July 15."

Thank you Thank you Thank You for posting this. WOW a chance to vote against that piece of trash. Run do not Walk to your nearest key board and hammer out this advocay. I had the pleasure of protesting with The Truth Wins Out at the national convention of NARTH in Irving Texas last year. A fine fine bunch of queerfolk.

I planned to say exactly what kelli said -- but I'll say it anyway -- Thank you Thank you Thank you for posting this. I cannot STAND JD. He's not just a bigot, he is ignorant. I have read that he has an active psychologist license in the state of CA. I hope that is untrue. Otherwise, the state licensing board there has little credibility.

Bush came out in praise for this man. He hated everyone, gays, POC, the poor. Death is no redeemer and we should not pretend he did not stand for some of the most vile traits of humankind.

Renee I think its safe to say if Bush likes someone, we should dislike that person.
