Another review states that all this information can be found elsewhere on the Web. I doubt many people would bother to search it out on the web. Here's a book that puts it all in one place to be read and pondered; a book that I can give to relatives and friends to encourage critical thinking and discussion on this important issue.
[If same-sex marriage is legalized]
1 - ...it will quickly destroy the traditional family
2 - children will suffer most
3 - public schools in every state will embrace homosexuality
4 - adoption laws will be instantly obsolete
5 - foster-care programs will be impacted dramatically
6 - the health-care system will stagger and perhaps collapse
7 - Social Security will be severely stressed
8 - Religious freedoms will almost certainly be jeopardized
9 - other nations... will follow our lead
10 - the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be severely curtailed, and
11 - the culture war will be over, and the world may soon become "as it was in the Days of Noah" (Matt 24:37) (pp. 47-64)
Dobson failed to convince me on every single one of these points. His assertions are alarmist and his book merely an attempt to fear-monger Christians into political action. It was obviously produced too quickly to be well-edited (for example, is the subtitle "Why We Must Win This Battle" as on the cover or "Why We Must Win This War" as on the title page?). It's also just a compilation of what Dobson has already said, in other publications and elsewhere.Read more ›
"Marriage under fire" is a minor essay book published in 2004 in which the author lays out the importance of heterosexual marriage and the "dangers" of the integraton of homosexual marriage citing both biblical and research anecdotes. He tugs at the reader's heartstrings to justify discrimination and encouraging them to get involved in the political process that would ultimately lead the passage of the federal marriage amendment (FMA), a constitutional amendment that would limit marriage to one man and one woman.
Using the "chicken little" approach, it's a provocative read. Written by a conservative Christian for conservative Christians, Dobson concentrates his attack the "gay agenda" using the most dubious research and logic around, at least for 2004. At a little over 110 pages, the book was a rather a quick read and moved on to "Religion gone Bad". The author of that book, paints a very unflattering picture of Dobson because of his anti-homosexual stance but moreso of who Dobson uses his influence to enforce a second-class citizenship out of "concern". More relevantly, Mel white is quick to discredit the researchers who justify Dobson's views - it does not take more than google.Read more ›
