Focus on the Family Has a Time Machine!

The mega para-church organization, Focus on the Family has a time machine and they’ve used it to send a message back from 2012!

In the letter, a Christian from 2012 paints a bleak picture of America: terrorists have struck numerous American cities leaving catastrophic death tolls. Russia is blitzkrieging across Eastern Europe. Israel is enveloped in a nuclear winter. Christians are brutally attacked for their faith. Boy Scout leaders are openly having sex with their young charges. The elderly are flatly denied health care. Married homosexuals prance in the streets of all 50 states, tripping on the fetuses of the millions of aborted children littering the sidewalks.

And how did this nightmare scenario come to be, you ask? Look no further than the election of Democrat Barack Obama!

According to Focus on the Family’s “Letter from 2012 in Obama’s America,” all these and more are plausible scenarios if Obama becomes President of the United States. The letter is especially written as an appeal to young evangelicals who it claims provided the numbers to push Obama over the edge and defeat John McCain.

Hmm, do you think the religious conservative movement is terrified of losing the election and seeing their once-dominant Religious Right and its leaders, like James Dobson, vanish into irrelevancy? Their horror, in the face of what looks like a growing inevitability, is palpable.

Not that this sort of attack is in any way uncommon from the so-called Moral Majority. Doom and gloom is what they do best. (The publisher of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma recently said that “Life As We Know It Will End If Obama is Elected.”) However, this unmitigated piece of filth represents a new low of blatant, barefaced fear mongering.

Focus on the Family stands by their letter, saying “If it is a doomsday picture, then it’s a realistic picture.”

I personally want to thank Focus on the Family. Many people ask me why I so strongly disliked living in Colorado Springs. Now I can simply provide the link to this 16 page document.

One thing occurred to me reading through this letter from the future.

The Far Right is so enclosed in their own black and white world view, they can't even fathom the idea that someone would choose not to do to them what they have done to others.

I guess Ted Haggard was the author of the letter? Lord knows he knows his way around a man.

Thank goodness for groups such as Focus on the Family. Without them, we'd lose our strongest argument in favor of eugenics. Chlorine for the gene pool, anyone? Geez...
