Cutting Religion Jobs

Looks like the economy is hitting religion. Focus on the Family, James Dobson’s Colorado-based faith group will cut 200 jobs as it faces a $5 million shortfall. The group will half its magazine publications.

And the National Cathedral in Washington will slash its budget by 40 percent and cut more than 40 positions.

The cathedral, which hosts national events such as state funerals, the installation of the Episcopal bishop and the memorial service after the Sept. 11 attacks, is supported by an endowment, private donations and events earnings.
