A group of Christians in Virginia says they’ll fast 40 days and 40 nights to stop gay marriage.
Obviously, that’s not going to do the trick. I suggest they also refrain from drinking any water for 40 days and 40 nights. That should stop gay marriage.
The Family Foundation has announced that it intends to embark on a hunger strike against marriage equality from Aug. 27 through Oct. 5.
For those counting, that’s 40 days.
The Virginia-based conservative Christian organization is calling the fast “40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance for Marriage.”
According to a statement released on the group’s website:
Our state and nation are mired in a morass of confusion and post-modern thinking that does not believe in absolutes nor that any truth can even be known. Nowhere is this more evident than in the current debate raging about what constitutes marriage. Pagan philosophies, a secular humanist education establishment and an entertainment industry that is absolutely determined in pushing the envelope on decency and morality have all combined to turn this great land into a country that our forefathers could not even begin to recognize.
