Caught in the crosshairs. Conservative Christian group, Focus on the Family, found itself the target of both a usual and an unusual attack Sunday.
Too far to the right, according to pro-gay organization Soulforce, on its treatment of homosexuals. Says member Jacob Reitan, "Don't be mistaken. Focus On the Family is focused on destroying family. Simple as that."
But too far to the left, according to Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, for the same reason.
About 700 showed up in an event where the battle lines were firmly drawn. One hundred forty Colorado Springs Police officers were at the event for security detail.
Members of Soulforce say they'll try to hand-deliver nearly a thousand letters to founder Dr. James Dobson Monday morning. Focus On the Family says he's out of town.
