Sounds like even Dobson would vote no!

I think I just hurt my chin when it hit my keyboard after I read this . So James Dobson--THE James Dobson--FOCUS ON THE FAMILY James Dobson--supports domestic partnership benefits?

Some fellow conservatives are criticizing Focus on the Family founder James Dobson for supporting proposed Colorado legislation to give same-sex couples limited legal protections.

The proposal would smooth the way for any two people who cannot marry to register for rights to hospital visits, making medical decisions for each other and property transfers. These rights are already available to two persons but they need lawyers to prepare paperwork....

Dobson said he believes in equality under the law but doesn't want to redefine marriage.

This is exactly the problem with "marriage plus" amendments like the one Arizona will be facing this November if the Center for Arizona Policy--an offshoot of Focus on the Family, I might add--gets enough signatures. It will make even "limited legal protections" unconstitutional. If even James Dobson thinks that goes too far, what is his affiliate organization doing backing such an amendment?
