Focus on the Family Blames It on the Rain
Masters of Asshatery Focus on the Family recently asked its supporters to pray for rain during Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday. I thought this was another possible assassination plot, because it's common knowledge is made from the same stuff the Wicked Witch of the North is made of. But no. Stuart Shepard, director of digital media at Focus on the Family, tells us why we should all pray for rain on Thursday.
I'm still pro-life, and I'm still in favor of marriage being only between one man and one woman. And I'd like the next president who'll select justices to the Supreme Court to agree.
It's drought! Drought causes women to not want to be pregnant! Drought causes gay people to want the same right as straight people! Drought causes those embryonic stem cells to be so damn pluripotent! If only it would rain more frequently! Why, God?! Why?!
Focus on the Family has pulled the video from its website and issued this video quasi-apology. Can you believe Stuart Shepard is the funniest guy at Focus on the Family? That's sad.
