But besides being derided by non-evangelicals, not even everyone at Focus on the Family thought it was appropriate (at least ten Focus members complained about it) and it was removed from their website. What they're saying?
Minnery said the video was taken down because several Focus members complained that prayer shouldn't be used to bring harm on someone else.
"We are not about confusing people about prayer," Minnery said.
But the video is pretty humorless, although it has a light tone. Shephard claims it's hyperbole and it certainly does have that quality. It might be easier to distinguish it as humor though if all their positions were not hyperbolic.
