Focus on the Family’s James Dobson spent $800,000 on Proposition 8 to stop gay people form marrying in California. Tonight, this dangerous ideologue will be inducted into the Museum of Broadcast Communication’s Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago.
He will be met with a protest this evening from LGBT organizations at 5:30 PM, outside of the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, 1 W. Wacker Drive (corner of Wacker & State).
It truly is mind-blowing that the Radio Hall of Fame would honor a leader of Proposition 8 on the same week he played a key role in helping the amendment pass. Dobson put his Media Empire and vast amounts of money into the service of denying equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. And, the Radio Hall of Fame reacts disgracefully by giving this demagogue a trophy.
If you live in the Chicago area, join us tonight and participate in our demonstration. If you cannot actually be with us, please be there in spirit by giving a generous contribution. We are only able to make our voices heard with your help.
