James Dobson’s Family Talk radio program aired a sermon today that Pastor Jim Garlow recently gave at a Religious Right conference, reports RightWingWatch.org.

Garlow, who is the pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, California, said that President Obama should have repented during his recent State of the Union address for his views on abortion, gay marriage and the national debt.

Pastor Garlow supported Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, reported UTSanDiego.com.

"We gathered and we huddled around TV sets on Tuesday night to hear the State of the Union address and we never heard the speech that should’ve been given. The speech should’ve begun with the words: ‘My fellow Americans, the State of the Union is tragic, it is very bad, we are in deep trouble,'" said Pastor Garlow. 

"'I as your President, who profess to be a born again Christian, come before you in repentance this day. Knowing that the scripture teaches that a baby in the womb should be safe and not ripped to shreds; knowing that marriage is the number one institution that preserves a nation; knowing that the current debt is stealing, theft from our future generations. therefore I as your President repent of sin and I ask us to work together to do what is right and try to preserve this wonderful experience called America.’ That’s the speech we should’ve had, but we did not have it."
