Focus on the Family is (not) Irreplaceable

Irreplaceable Focus on the Family
In fact, we could totally get rid of Focus on the Family and things would be pretty cool. But that’s not going to happen because they have money and you don’t. To expand on that, they have the money to create a documentary film about how traditional families are awesome and then broadcast it across the country using Fathom Events. Now, I don’t care what people use Fathom Events for, be it RiffTrax of Glenn Beck. But I can speak derisively at the content of those Fathom Events if they are Looney Tunes.

From the innocuous trailer, you might think Irreplaceable was some harmless fluff about how kids need love. I wish that was just the case. But the true colors are shown thanks to the host’s own words and the guest list of interviewees.

As they say:

Host of “The Family Project,” Tim Sisarich said that he believes that God’s grace and truth can inspire hope to families who have no hope. He added that God is the only architect who can show us the original design He had for the family.

Translation: If you don’t have the traditional family, you are against God. Irreplaceable is part of The Family Project, and is budgeted at $5 million.

Irreplaceable will feature such luminaries as Dr. Miriam Grossman, author of You’re Teaching My Children WHAT?, a book that says sex education is based on a bunch of lies. It also preaches gay conversion therapy, an excerpt of which can be found at http://www.miriamgrossmanmd.com/gay-or-straight-when-others-decide-for-you-part-two/

Here is my favorite quote from her:

With the brouhaha over Bristol Palin’s pregnancy, here’s a plus no one’s considered: should this young woman go to college as a married mom, she’ll be spared four years of the campus hook-up culture.

(from http://townhall.com/columnists/miriamgrossmanmd/2008/09/04/what_our_daughters_must_know )

Michael Medved, who uses his film critic cred (HA!) to rant against gay marriage. http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelmedved/2010/08/11/gay_marriage_myths_and_truth/page/full

Rabbi Shmuel Goldin campaigns against the publication of gay wedding announcements in Jewish newspapers. I’m sure he’s unbiased…

Right wing nutjob Eric Metaxas, yet another guy obsessed with gays and gay sex. Anyone get the feeling there is a lot of repression going on? http://www.breakpoint.org/bpcommentaries/entry/13/22605

But this must be even-handed, right? Speaking of irreplaceable, what if someone replaced Focus on the Family with an organization that wasn’t homophobic and regressive? Because that’s some replacing I can get behind! Someone get my replacing suit!

As the blurb says…

What is family? Does ‘family’ still matter in today’s society? NCM Fathom Events, Focus on the Family™ and Pine Creek Entertainment invite you to explore these important questions when Irreplaceable comes to select cinemas nationwide in a theatrical one-night event on Tuesday, May 6 at 7:30pm (local time).

Join host Tim Sisarich (Executive Director of Focus on the Family™ New Zealand) as he seeks to find out whether the adage, “If family fails, society fails” is true. He meets with experts around the globe to determine whether the concept of the traditional family is meaningful, or in fact outmoded. And if it is meaningful, is family worth preserving, even fighting for? On the journey he hopes to discover why all humans have a yearning to be in family – to be a part of something – and what forces contribute to the breakdown of family. Explore the origins and history of the family structure through an array of lenses and cultures.

In addition to this compelling documentary, listen to a panel discussion of experts and special guests who will wrestle with the implications family has for all of humanity. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this enlightening journey!

Irreplaceable airs May 6 2014 at theaters nationwide.

Wingnut Web – TarsTarkas.NET Declares War on Christmas!l

Santa Claus, you son of a bitch! You’re going down! Christmas must be destroyed down to the last elf, jingle bell, and reindeer. Why destroy Christmas? Because we are evil! Duh! Thus, when we run into a website like Stand For Christmas ( http://standforchristmas.com/pages/home ), TarsTarkas.NET breaks out the candy cane machine guns! Time to riddle these ho-ho-hoes with some HOLIDAY cheer! Focus on the Family is James Dobson’s political tax-exempt group that was founded before I was born, the same group that hates the gays, hates the evolution, hates the women, hates your freedom, and all in the name of Jesus’s love. And now, if your store doesn’t love Jesus enough for Focus on the Family, you’re gonna get mistletoe shoved up your butt!

Someone explain to me how you are a California non-profit if you are based out of Colorado?

The website rates retailers on how Chirstmassy they are. You are either Christmas Friendly, Negligent, or Offensive. Gap has the most Christmas-Offensive score while Bass Pro Shops is the most Christmas-Friendly.
x2.jpg

So let’s check out the Gap and figure out why!
x3.jpg

Gap hates Christmas!
x4.jpg

Maybe it was just bad customer service instead of a secret war against religion. No, must be a secret war against religion.
x5.jpg

I could have sworn it was Thanksgiving…
x6.jpg

How dare they suggest that as Americans, we have freedom of religion or something? Those jerks!
x7.jpg

This is not widely known, but Jesus was green and red color when he was born
x8.jpg

How dare Gap run ads about the several holidays happening now, it must be a conspiracy by Gap to destroy Christmas!
x9.jpg

Jesus is the reason for the crotch exposure. And what is Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan doing in a Gap catalogue?
x10.jpg

Only the Federal Government has the right to decide holidays!
x11.jpg

Best Buy scored points by mentioning a Muslim holiday in their flyer. By scoring points I mean they scored negative points!
x12.jpg

Pilgrims? How many Pilgrims are around today? And should we celebrate their holidays for drowning witches and scarlet letters?
x13.jpg

The dumbest part about this site is I have to defend Best Buy, a store I hate for terrible customer service. And what does Minnesota have to do with ANYTHING?
x14.jpg

I wanted to buy $4000 of electronic Blu-ray nativity scenes, but not any more!
x15.jpg

Another guy supposedly spending $4000? In this economy?
x16.jpg

This person is offended that the Muslim holiday is commercialized too much, and that the Christian holiday is not commercialized enough!
x17.jpg

Toys R Us hates Jesus
x18.jpg

Shameful they haven’t exploited the birthday of our Lord!
x19.jpg

Target apparently hates Jesus because they won’t let the Salvation Army outside their store.
x20.jpg

Even my Christmas Ham has “Christmas” tattooed on it!
x21.jpg

This guy is why most customer service employees want to kill themselves
x22.jpg

Nativity hide and seek!
x23.jpg

JC Penney’s loves the death!
x24.jpg

CHRISTmas is materialistic, that’s why it’s so important for me to shop for CHRISTmas!
x25.jpg

I have never seen these books at Boarders, but I wish I did!
x26.jpg

Vampire books at Halloween? Barnes & Noble, you monsters! I hear they even sell that monster Sarah Palin’s book!
x27.jpg

This lone person destroyed Banana Republic, which now no longer exists!
x28.jpg

American Eagle loves porn and hates Jesus
x29.jpg

Christmas has not come yet, thus there is more time for Christmas-Offensive cheer! Join Wingnut Web next time, as we bake Rudolph into a pie! Remember, you can’t spell Satan without Santa!
