A couple years ago, James Dobson left Focus on the Family, the group he founded, and launched a new radio show called Family Talk. But now it looks like the new project is having financial problems and they’re begging for cash to keep it going:
Just over two years ago, Dr. Dobson resigned from Focus and passed the leadership of that ministry to others. But Dr. Dobson is far from finished with his service to our Lord. We are grateful that Dr. Dobson wants to continue his work to strengthen families and our nation, and his message has never been more urgently needed than it is today! With this calling in mind, the ministry, Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk, was born.
As a directing Board, we are in full agreement with Dr. Dobson that the family is facing its watershed moment. America is experiencing a moral and spiritual crisis that threatens the very foundation of Western Civilization. The family is under attack as never before. Dr. Dobson’s wisdom and insights are needed more now than ever before. The good news is that Family Talk is making a significant difference – standing firm on principles of Scripture and encouraging those who are fatigued, frustrated and fearful.…If we are unable to receive the needed support, we may have to reduce some of our radio stations. The battle is raging, and now is not the time to reduce our outreach. The Board is deeply committed financially, and Dr. Dobson has never taken a salary from Family Talk. Please consider how you might be able to join us today in carrying on this ministry to families.
And Dobson is doing what demagogues always do when trying to raise money — scare the hell out of his target audience, telling them that civilization itself is on the verge of collapse because those damned secular liberals think people should actually be free to do things that Dobson doesn’t want them to do.
