It’s good to see that Dr. Dobson and the crew in Colorado Springs at Focus on the Family really does put families first…well, maybe not those whose family members actually work at Focus on the Family. There was an interesting article in The Colorado Independent entitled “More layoffs at Focus on the Family” that told the story about how 202 jobs will be cut from Focus on the Family. However, the article focused on how Focus on the Family was one of the largest out-of-state financial backers for Prop 8 in California. In fact, the organization gave $539,000 in cash and $83,000 of non-monetary support to the fight to “protect marriage.” Over half a million dollars spent to “protect” families from the dangers and evils of gay marriage. Unfortunately, they didn’t do a good job of protecting their own; how 202 families will be suffering a loss and needing to find work elsewhere. Sure, the current state of the economy is playing a major role in these layoffs, I’m sure. However, the articles points out that this may simply be a good example of the true priorities of Focus on the Family, and other like organizations. Are they really trying to put families first? It’d be interesting to hear from some of those who are going to be laid off, especially after Dobson and crew spent their salaries trying to prevent gays in another state from getting hitched.
