Focus on the Family narrator gets busted for trying to lure young girl into sex
I’m tired of every Christian I speak to thinking their religion makes them more moral than others. What bugs me the most is this stupid idea that the Bible is an adequate moral compass. It really isn’t. If one passage isn’t telling you to stone your children, it’s telling you not to eat shellfish. If pigging out on shrimp is wrong, then I don’t want to be right, dammit.
Here’s an article about Juan Alberto Ovalle, a Spanish narrator for Focus on the Family who just got busted for solicitation of a minor. Undercover agents posing as young girls caught him trying to seduce what he thought was 15 year old girl into sleeping with him. He’s obviously a pillar of society.
I went to the site to see if they would make a statement, but obviously they are too mortified to comment on the arrest. I did, however, find this quote in their ‘About’ page that I thought I’d share with you on the eve of Juan’s arrest:
Since Focus on the Family’s primary reason for existence is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through a practical outreach to homes, we have firm beliefs about both the Christian faith and the importance of the family. This ministry is therefore based upon six guiding philosophies that are apparent at every level throughout the organization. These ‘pillars’ are drawn from the wisdom of the Bible and the Judeo-Christian ethic, rather than from the humanistic notions of today’s theorists (my quote marks). In short, Focus on the Family is a reflection of what we believe to be the recommendations of the Creator Himself, who ordained the family and gave it His blessing.
Would you like to have a ‘good Christian’ like Juan Ovalle reaching out to your family? I think I’ll stick to people with more humanistic notions…
