I'm confused by this article. It claims that FOTF supports "traditional Christian values" and the "American family" without bothering to explain what they are - and indeed, who decides what they are. Are they trying to imply that whatever FOTF decides is traditional Christian values/the "normal" make-up of the American family? That's a scary thought.
- I added a picture of Dr. Dobson. And FYI, I wouldn't be afraid to let FOTF decide, not at all. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 22:07, 1 May 2010 (EDT)
Words in mouth
We need to be careful about attributing anti-Harry Potter sentiment to James Dobson. It is a favorite tactic of anti-religious people to portray Christians as "throwing out the baby with the bathwater".
I remember when Harry Potter came out, there were scads of articles claiming that the "religious right" had condemned the books on the grounds that there was magic in it. I tried in vain for a long time to find even one nationally known religious leader who made such a condemnation.
Now, maybe my research has been superficial, but if someone like James Dobson or Chuck Colson is on record as condemning Harry Potter, I'd like us to put it in this encyclopedia, with a link so people can confirm the source and see the context. But I haven't found this information yet. --Ed Poor Talk 14:50, 30 May 2011 (EDT)
