Maybe you're intepreting it wrong

Per Jim Dobson:
[W]e made a lot of progress through the Eighties but then we turned into the Nineties and the internet came along and a new president came along and all of that went away and now we are absolutely awash in evil. And we are right now in the most discouraging period of that long conflict. Humanly speaking, we can say that we have lost all those battles, but God is in control and we are not going to give up now, right?
It's probably not fair to pick on someone purely on semantics (but I think Dobson is an idiot, so I don't feel too bad about it), but how can he believe both that "the country is awash in evil" and that "God is in control"? Unless he also believes that God himself wants the country to be "awash in evil" and is actively promoting this outcome?

Maybe he's just ignoring the obvious?
