Focus on Your Own Family: Response to Focus on the Family’s Jim Daly

Brad’s response to Focus on the Family head Jim Daly, who mentioned him in a recent article. In the article Daly tried to deflect the analyses that connect the Atlanta shooter with Evangelicalism and purity culture. 

Brad dissects Daly’s argument that:

  • The Atlanta shooter’s actions were born from insanity, and thus warrant no further investigation
  • This is unfair to Christianity
  • Purity culture = healthy
  • Marriage is for procreation = biblical

He concludes by extolling Daly to focus on his own family so that the rest of us don’t have to continue living with its violent and abusive effects.
