Right wing evangelical James Dobson, founder of social conservative group Focus on the Family, joined Mike Huckabee and Bryan Fischer in giving their two cents on the Newtown school shooting. According to Right Wing Watch, James Dobson said:
I mean millions of people have decided that God doesn’t exist, or he’s irrelevant to me, and we have killed fifty-four million babies and the institution of marriage is right on the verge of a complete redefinition. Believe me, that is going to have consequences too.
And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us. I think that’s what’s going on.
