Focus on the family's 'Letter from 2012' predictions in 2008

A documented case of false prophecy: Four years later, ‘Letter from 2012′ makes Focus on the Family look ridiculous

Out of 34 predictions they got 0 right. (Though they get half credit for predicting the end of Don't Ask Don't, but none of the predicted dire consequences of that actually occured)

These have a definite Christianist focus, but I find them an interesting contrast to the threads here predicting what we might expect from a Romney or Obama administration.

Actually, everything on that list did go down exactly as predicted...accomplished by invisible Obama. He's a rotten bastard. Didn't you see how it went down between him and Eastwood?
