Focus on the Bigotry

by Jeremy Hooper

Our ol' drinking buddies at Focus on the Family are once again up to some shenanigans.

Tom MinneryTom Minnery (pic.), FOTF's VP of public policy, tells the Denver Post that his group of compassionate intolerants are taking their discriminatory road show to no less than 15 states in the next two years, in an attempt to write homo-gay discrimination into various state constitutions. Apparently marriage is under attack or something?! It's unclear, but it sounds violent. We're not totally sure, but we do think this tour o' states will set some sort of Bigotry World Record - although some of Fallwell's previous efforts may be tough to beat.

FOTF's campaign is starting out in Colorado (FOTF's home state), where the swarthy Democrats control both chambers of the legislature. FOTF knows it would be tough to convince this progressive, open-minded crew to embrace discrimination, so instead the group is attempting to gather enough signatures from Colorado residents to earn a ballot spot in 2006.

According to Focus on My Butthole's mouthpiece, Paul Hetrick, plans are still in the early stages and other organizers have yet to be recruited. The cult organization is also saying that they won't be alone in this effort , but rather part of a broad coalition.

After all - it takes a village to prevent homo-gays from from obtaining equal rights.
