James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, a ministry he left in 2010, believes allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry may lead to the destruction of the “entire superstructure of society.”

In a recent appearance to pitch his new book, Your Legacy: The Greatest Gift, Dobson and Billy Hallowell, faith and culture editor at TheBlaze.com, discussed the role Christianity plays in today's society.

“When you look at what's happening in society, what do you sort of see as the role of Christianity right now?” Hallowell asked. “And what's sort of the future outlook?”

“Well, the family is not just a Christian enterprise. You know, it goes all the way back. Every continent on Earth, every place that mankind has taken hold, the family, the marriage unit has been evident,” Dobson replied.

“When you start to weaken that, or undermine it, when it becomes less significant, it influences the entire culture. And, in fact, the entire superstructure of culture can come crashing down.”

“That's happened in Rome. It happened in Greece. It's happened throughout history. And I don't think that America can survive in the form we have known … if we allow the family to disintegrate. And that is, in fact, what's happening.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
