Layoffs Rumored at Focus On the Family

Jim Burroway

July 30th, 2010

The Colorado Springs-based organization has been faring poorly over the past several years. Today the Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Focus On the Family is likely to incur yet another round of downsizing in order to fit its operations within declining revenues. Rumors have it that another 100 people may lose their jobs.

Focus currently employs about 850 people, which is significantly down from its peak of about 1,500 in 2000.

If only our federal and CA government could learn to do the same thing… fit their “operations within declining revenues”

Sadly, some of the FOTF revenue has no doubt gone to NOM.

The positive side of this includes the possibility that these folks can go out and earn a honest living by not demeaning fellow citizens (and our families)…no wonder Dr. Dobson fled already, the challenge was farrrr too great to regroup the group into becoming responsible and self-accountable members of the community (any).

So, FOTF employees are losing their jobs after their leaders spent truckloads of money to persecute gays.

If the remaining people at FOTF were half rational, they might want to think, “Golly gee, maybe God hates the persecution of gays. Or if they were fully rational, they might want to think, “we are gullible people employed by demagogic liars on fire for God power and money.”

What a colossal waste of money. How many people do you need spewing complete BS?

As someone who has been unemployed for quite a long time, it is sad to see these people loose their jobs…

As a gay man, I could not be happier to see that they have lost so much currency that they are now scraping to make ends meet.

Could one be both happy and sad for the misery of others?

It’s never sad to see a scam artist lose their job.

Any good Free Market conservative should be completely willing to be laid off in bad economic times.

Hayek: “In the long run, a Free Market will provide the best outcome.”

Keynes: “In the long run, we’re all dead.”

Ummm, really, it takes 850 people to tell gays that they are bad and evil and to come up with wacky ideas like gays shouldn’t adopt, or gays shouldn’t get hospital visitation rights? You know they should get listed on the stock market, so I can buy all their shares and fire every single one of them!
