In video released Tuesday morning from a secret religious right-wing event titled “One Nation Under God,” Focus on the Family founder James Dobson warned Americans that if they don’t vote right-wing in 2012, they’ll be in “serious trouble” with God.

“I am most concerned about the dift away from Christian principles,” Dobson said at the media embargoed event held in late October. “Are we going to continue to honor God with the holy living that he continues to prescribe to us? If we don’t, we are in serious trouble. And right now, I think we are.”

The controversial evangelist added: “I happen to see this particular election cycle as absolutely critical. We’re going to find out pretty quick which direction we’re going. And if it’s going to be as it was in the past, I hate to say it, but we deserve what’s coming to us.”

In 2009, Dobson resigned from Focus on the Family, citing that the organization needed to be placed in the hands of a younger generation.
