Creep of the Week: Focus On the Family Action

By |2008-10-30T09:00:00-04:00October 30th, 2008|Opinions|

Did you know when Barack Obama gets elected “porn will be available practically everywhere with no restrictions?” I didn’t. That is, until I got schooled by Focus On the Family Action. “Porn for one and porn for all” is apparently part of the Obama platform that’s only being released to right-wing, time traveling mental cases.
FOFA has released a “Letter from 2012 in Obama’s America,” a veritable doom’s day blueprint of America post-Obama victory and all of the delinquency his presidency will bring.
The letter is written from a Christian who has traveled forward in time to give us “a picture of the changes that are likely or at least very possible if Sen. Obama is elected and the far-left segments of the Democratic Party gain control of the White House, the Congress and perhaps then the Supreme Court.”
The fun begins when Obama nominates a bunch of “far-left, American Civil Liberties Union-oriented judges” to the Supreme Court. Naturally, the first thing they do is legalize gay marriage. “Suddenly, homosexual ‘marriage’ was the law of the land in all 50 states, and no state legislature, no state Supreme Court, no state Constitutional amendment, not even Congress, had any power to change it,” our futurist Christian laments.
The next logical progression for the court is to force the Boy Scouts to “hire homosexual scoutmasters and allow them to sleep in tents with young boys.” This fear makes no sense since when it comes to camping homosexuals, it’s lesbians, not gay men we’re talking about. But hey, maybe Focus On The Family Action is afraid dykes will force Scouts to sing “Closer To Fine” around the campfire.
After the Boy Scouts are destroyed, it’s on to the public schools to teach first graders “the goodness of homosexuality.” Evangelical teachers leave in droves and public schools become de facto homosexual training grounds.
Of course, gays aren’t satisfied with destroying marriage, Boy Scouts and public education. They want to destroy adoption, too. And they do! After the Supreme Court mandates that all adoption agencies hand over kids to queers, “agencies across the United States have now closed down rather than violate their consciences about the moral wrong of homosexual behavior.”
Killing religious adoption agencies only makes the gays stronger and so they move on to destroying capitalism, which they do handily via mandated domestic partner benefits!
Like the plant in “Little Shop of Horrors,” once the gays have tasted blood, a few drops at a time just won’t do. So they gobble up doctors who won’t inseminate lesbians, Christians who speak out against gays or read the Bible publicly, counselors who try to “fix” homosexuals, lawyers who refuse to help gay clients adopt, churches who won’t marry two dudes or hire a gay youth pastor, and, finally (“FEED ME!”), the United States military.
And all because “Christians didn’t take time to find out who Barack Obama was when they voted for him.”
The letter is, of course, a pile of unicorn shit. It shows a group with a tenuous hold on reality grappling as they watch the unchecked power and undue influence they had under Bush slip away. They’re scared that under Obama, groups like the gays and the ACLU would do to them what they’ve been doing to everyone else. It’s the fear of every bully. It won’t happen, of course, but let’s leave them to squirm awhile.
And don’t you dare forget to vote Nov. 4.
