Losing Focus: Less people being paid to denigrate our lives and loves

by Jeremy Hooper

You know that "newer," "softer," post-Dobson Focus on the Family experiment? Yeah, well -- it may not be working:

Conservative Christian ministry Focus on the Family announced today it is eliminating 49 jobs in the latest of several rounds of layoffs in response to ongoing economic pressures.
...
This new 7 percent staff reduction brings the employee number to 650, down from a 2002 peak of 1,400 people. In the last few years, Focus has let go almost 500 workers.

I wish all of the laid off workers success in finding work. Preferably in gigs that don't require them to dedicate huge portions of time towards stigmatizing their fellow human beings.
