James Dobson: Marriage equality will destroy ‘entire superstructure’ of society
Evangelical radio host James Dobson on Monday warned his listeners that last week’s Supreme Court rulings in favor of same sex marriage could cause the “entire superstructure” of society to “come down.”
“That’s the foundation of the relationship, a man and a woman,” he told Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and conservative attorney Bill Becker. “And if you undermine it, if you do anything to cause it to crack like has occurred now with the rulings last week, you necessarily threaten the entire superstructure. I believe it can come down.”
“Because you can’t have stability without a functioning marital relationship that leads to strong children who know who they are as a boy or a girl or a man or a woman,” Dobson added. “This has been devastating. Even if eventually legally we somehow walk it back a bit, I don’t see our [society] ever completely recovering from what has happened here.”
Becker agreed that “we’ve seen the collapse of Western civilization in one day.”
