"Focus on the Family" Should Not Be in the Radio Hall of Fame

Posted by libhom Wednesday, October 15, 2008

The largest and most influential Christian Right hate group, "Focus on the Family," and their vicious founder, James Dobson, are scheduled to be inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in early November. No, I'm not making this up, as crazy as it is. People who are familiar with FOTF know that they stand for hatred and bigotry against the following groups of people:

- Women

- Queers

- Non-whites

- Anyone who is not a militant, Christian fundamentalist

Yet, the people who run the Radio Hall of Fame actually are honoring those venomous bigots. They should be ashamed of themselves. By doing this, they have sent a message that the overwhelming majority of Americans are not welcome in their joke of a museum.

Wayne Besen is running a moving video on his blog with a personal story of how the FOTF's heterosexist bigotry tore a young man's family apart.

Contact these people and demand that "Focus on the Family" be taken off the list of inductees into the Radio Hall of Fame.

Here is some contact information:

The Gay Liberation Network in Chicago is planning a protest against this outrage. If you are in the Chicago area, I would recommend that you attend.

Protest against Focus on the Family's James Dobson in Chicago
5:30 PM - Saturday, Nov. 8th
Renaissance Chicago Hotel
1 W. Wacker Drive (at State Street)

The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) is inducting religious right bigot James Dobson into its "Hall of Fame." Besides using his broadcast empire to lie about LGBT people, Dobson has been a leading proponent of taking away our rights, including heavily supporting California anti-gay referendum this November.

While open hate against many minority groups is fortunately less tolerated than in generations past, the MBC apparently thinks it's still open season on LGBT people.

Please contact the Museum and demand that they rescind this honor:
telephone 312.245.8200
brucedumont@museum.tv

And please join us for a protest outside the MBC induction ceremony,
5:30 to 7:30 PM, Saturday, November 8th, 1 W. Wacker Drive, Chicago.

  1. I wish that young gay man were my son. I'd love him and protect him and be proud of him.

  3. I emailed and suggested they add it to the hall of shame, instead.. That seems far more appropriate for an organisation intent on creating division, hate and prejudice.

  5. You're all fucking stupid.

  7. If loving people regardless of differences is stupid, if not liking the spread of hatred, division and lies is stupid, then yes I am.

  11. A Hall of Fame for a dying medium? No wonder they like reactionary fascists like Dobson.
