ABC hops in bed with Focus on the Family for 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'

I have to agree with Jeremy of Good As You when he says “this of course means that the ‘extremely made over’ home will no longer allow for back door entry.”

You have to read a bit between the lines of the sanitized FOF press release to see what else the family gets along with a new home. I’m sure the house will be well-stocked with right-wing propaganda.

Focus on the Family is participating in this week’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition event in Peyton, Colorado. Both the show’s producers and sponsor Keller Homes invited Focus to contribute after learning the unique background of the episode’s beneficiary, a local family of eight.

Focus will provide a complete family library of video, audio, and print classics for this homeschooling family. The library includes literary classics, the Adventures in Odyssey radio series, audio dramas from the award-winning Radio Theatre series, marriage and parenting resources [As we all know, Dobson thinks gay marriage is a threat to the earth itself], subscriptions to the top Focus magazines, and a variety of other resources specifically tailored to the ages and interests of the family members.


On the FOF web site, we learn what the most impressive part of the program will be – glad handing with Daddy Dobson himself…

In addition to its participation in the October 2 episode, Focus hosted the Barrett family yesterday at its Colorado Springs campus for a special visit. The highlight of the day was a meeting with Focus founder and chairman Dr. James Dobson. The Peyton, Colorado family of eight also enjoyed a VIP tour of the Focus on the Family campus, lunch with the staff, a visit with Focus on the Family president and CEO Jim Daly, a trip to the broadcasting studios for a behind-the-scenes look at the popular Adventures in Odyssey children’s radio program, and interviews with the Brio and Breakaway teen magazine staffs.
