Who Would Jesus Fire?

Focus on the Family announced yesterday 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.

After spending more than half a million dollars for the California Yes on 8 campaign, the Colorado based ministry, is adjusting to the recession just like the rest of the nation.

In all, Focus pumped $539,000 in cash and another $83,000 worth of non-monetary support into the measure to overturn a California Supreme Court ruling that allowed gays and lesbians to marry in that state. The group was the seventh-largest donor to the effort in the country. The cash contributions are equal to the salaries of 19 Coloradans earning the 2008 per capita income of $29,133.

I guess fighting to keep the right to become a family away from loving individuals is more important than the people that are employed by “Focus on the Family”. Can anyone say irony?

Headzup Entertainment has a great toon here: It’s better to have 202 jobless and homeless then let the queers get married

I could just hear the managers at the layoff meeting, “I know this is probably the worst time of the year in the worst economy in 50 years to lay you all off, but while you are trying not to lose a place to live, just remember you defeated the gays and hopefully that kind of pride will fill your stomach when you don’t have any money to buy food.”

F’ing A-Holes!

I want to hear the same news about Concerned Women…maybe worse. But I have personal reasons on that one. Looks to me like the right just sank their nuts into cold water. The shrinkage is noted by those of us standing on the warm quicksand.
