James Dobson resigns as chairman of Focus on the Family

Not everything in the religious world is whacky. Not everyone is Benny Hinn. Jim Dobson was a class act. Sometimes delving too much into politics, but always coming back to the core values of family and God.

His voice will still be heard, though anti-free speech advocates tend to want to shut down his conservatives views on religion, homosexuality and abortion. He spoke out against heavily pro-choice American president Barack Obama, causing disputes among pro-Obama Christians.

Dobson resigns as chairman of Focus on the Family
DENVER (AP) — Conservative evangelical leader James Dobson has resigned as chairman of Focus on the Family but will continue to play a prominent role at the organization he founded more than three decades ago.

Dobson notified the board of his decision Wednesday, and the 950 employees of the Colorado Springs, Colo.-based ministry were informed Friday morning, said Jim Daly, the group's president and chief executive officer.

Dobson, 72, will continue to host Focus on the Family's flagship radio program, write a monthly newsletter and speak out on moral issues, Daly said.

Quitters: Julie and Hillary Goodridge Divorcing

Surprising no one, Mass. couple who led gay marriage fight to divorce.

After proving that their commitment was a sham separating two years after legally marrying, Julie and Hillary Goodridge are legally quitting.

They apparently were willing to fight to be married, but unwilling to show that same fight to stayed married.

No matter how you slice it, divorce makes someone a liar when they said "I do." For all the noise Julie and Hillary Goodridge made, they are quitters, and what do we say to quitters?
