James Dobson's Focus on the Family seems to have spent so much money preventing same-sex marriages in order to demonstrate family values or whatever that they now have to lay off 202 of its employees, leaving who knows how many families needing a new source of income.

"If it had not been for the discontent of a few fellows who had not been satisfied with their conditions, you would still be living in caves. Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization.

Progress is born of agitation. It is agitation or stagnation."

A small consolation, knowing what they helped to successfully accomplish on the fourth. (8, 2, and 102.)



Though, the fact that this is continuing a trend of FotF shedding members every year or two is heartening.

Perhaps this will give the people concerned some time to focus on their own families for a change.

The name "Focus on the Family" makes a whole lot more sense if you call it "Focus on the Patriarchal Family". In fact, in the name of any organisation, if you put "patriarchal" in front of "family", it starts to make more sense.

This insight lovingly stolen wholesale from PZ Myers.

And if i catch you comin' back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do
-- "Seven Nation Army", The White Stripes

So what you're telling me is that LTV's fudge factor means more than it's independent variable?
