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?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
