Wife-Beating Apologist James Dobson:

In a 1984 broadcast of his radio program, she says, Dobson told his listening audience that he had seen situations where the wife wanted to be beaten up. His hypothesis was that the wife achieved a certain moral advantage from being hit. If she pushed her husband into blacking her eye, the world — and God — would view her as a martyr. This way, he said, she could give herself a moral exit from the marriage, because the Bible says marriage is forever.

So for the record, “spanking guru James Dobson” will now be referred to here as “wife-beating apologist James Dobson.”
