Not all the news is bad

Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2008 at 7:09 PM

Focus on the Family, the James Dobson-led "ministry" that focuses particularly on marginalizing gay people -- recently in ballot measures in both California and Arkansas, here through its affiliate Family Council -- is laying off hundreds of employees. The laser-like focus on gay bashing apparently has depleted its coffers.

Wonkette offers no succor for Dobsonites:

Sure, you have no income now because James Dobson burnt all of your company’s money on a state ballot proposition. But imagine the alternative! Would you want to be employed knowing that several hundred miles away, in another state, pairs of consenting adults that already have been living together, people whom you’ve never met and will never meet, were applying for state licenses (pieces of paper, really) that offered them some new tax and medical options??

Or, in Arkansas, wanted to adopt children without families?
