Anyone Want to Hire an Out-of-Work Bigot?

The Colorado Independent is reporting that James Dobson’s Focus on the Family will be cutting 202 jobs, laying off an estimated 20 percent of its workforce.

The layoffs come just weeks after the right-wing group spent more than $600,000 to defeat marriage equality in California.

The Focus on the Family empire invested $539,000 in cash and another $83,000 worth of non-monetary support into passing Prop. 8, praising the initiative as one that would “help protect millions of children from radical indoctrination in the homosexual lifestyle.”

The group also touted its involvement collecting signatures and gathering donations for Prop. 8, patting itself on the back for being “integrally involved” in the fight against marriage equality.

As the Independent reported, “Critics are holding up the layoffs, which come just two months after the organization’s last round of dismissals, as a sad commentary on the true priorities of the ministry.”
