As conservatives voice outrage after six Dr. Seuss books were “canceled” over insensitive imagery, a culture and policy analyst with a leading conservative Christian family organization believes Christians should acknowledge some of Seuss’ work was problematic without demonizing him.
Focus on the Family’s Jeff Johnston told The Christian Post in an interview Wednesday that Christians should be objective in their approach to “knee-jerk reaction” issues that gain so much attention.
“As Christians, we want to be temperate in issues like this, and objective and not rush to judgment about Dr. Seuss or about any of his work,” Johnston said. “And it’s also important to have some perspective on this. Dr. Seuss was a product of his own time. … Christians should be honest, too, that there are some aspects of his work that are problematic. … But at the same time, I don’t think we want to demonize Dr. Seuss.”
