Dr. James Dobson Suggests Non-Violence Of Martin Luther King And Gandhi Was Immoral

Reported by Ellen - June 11, 2006

During his 6/9/06 appearance on Hannity & Colmes, Dr. James Dobson, of Focus on the Family, told Sean Hannity that killing Al-Zarqawi was a moral thing to do. Then, in Alan Colmes’ portion of the discussion, he asked Dobson about the non-violent philosophies preached by Reverend Martin Luther King and Gandhi.

Colmes asked, “There were people like – in terms of moral values – Dr. Martin Luther King, Gandhi – people like that who preached nonviolence. Were they not moral in the message that they gave, that they put out? Was that not a moral message?”

Dobson responded, “Well, I won’t go back and point fingers at people in the past and to say that they were immoral but I can just tell you what I believe – that even the Bible says you live by the sword, you die by the sword. And I think when there is wickedness and evil and people are continuing to be killed in that way and you have a man who is more than anyone else responsible for it, you take him out and that feels moral to me.”

Comment: That sounds to me as though he believes that killing is the Christian, moral way, that the only reason he hasn’t accused King and Gandhi of immorality is because he doesn’t want to “go back and point fingers.”
