James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, believes that last week's Supreme Court decisions related to gay marriage will lead to children being confused about their gender.

Dobson was joined Monday on his radio show by Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC) and Bill Becker, an attorney affiliated with groups such as the Alliance Defense Fund.

According to Dobson, the two rulings, which have led to the federal government recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples and the return of same-sex marriages in California, threaten the “entire superstructure” of society.

“If you undermine it, if you weaken it, if you do anything to cause it to crack, like has occurred now with the rulings last week, you necessarily threaten the entire superstructure. I believe it can come down,” Dobson said. “Because you can't have stability without a functioning marital relationship that leads to strong children who know who they are as a boy or a girl, or a man or a woman.”

“This has been devastating. Even if eventually legally we somehow walk it back a bit, I don't see our ever completely recovering from what has happened here.”

Becker added: “I believe we've seen the collapse of Western civilization in one day.”
