Out of Focus

The recession is hurting every segment of the economy. Even the folks in the sanctimony and intolerance distribution business are facing hard times.

Focus on the Family announced this afternoon that 202 jobs will be cut companywide — an estimated 20 percent of its workforce. Initial reports bring the total number of remaining employees to around 950.


The cutbacks come just weeks after the group pumped more than half a million dollars into the successful effort to pass a gay-marriage ban in California.

I’m trying to work up a little sympathy for these people who are losing their jobs because the company they work for just blew most of their money in an effort to pass an amendment in California that enshrines inequality into the state’s constitution.

Nope. I’ve got nothing.
