Hating James Dobson: To Heck With His Qualifications, He's a Meanie

Rush Limbaugh is in the Radio Hall of Fame and deservedly so. He redefined talk radio. This year, the Radio Hall of Fame is considering Dr. James Dobson, along with Howard Stern, Bob Costas, and Laura Schlessinger.
As you can imagine, the left is going nuts over Dobson's nomination. They do not care about Dobson's impact on the medium. They do not care about how many people listen to him [Ed. -- That is *precisely* what they care about]. They really only care that Dobson is a Christian with strongly held views they consider hateful, i.e. his opposition to gay marriage.
A group called Truth Wins Out is trying to scuttle Dobson's nomination because, according to their Executive Director, "We believe that character counts and nominees should have careers based on honesty and integrity – not discrimination, distorting research and outright lying."
Just to be clear here, this is a pro-gay organization that wants to shut out Dr. Dobson for disagreeing with the lifestyle -- in other words they are intolerant of Dobson's opinion and want to deny him entry into the Radio Hall of Fame as a result.
It's a sad day in America when a man as imminently qualified for recognition in the field of radio as Dobson is would be shut out of the Hall of Fame for exercising his first amendment rights on the radio in a way leftists disagree with.
