  COUNTDOWN ELECTION 2012

Anti-Gay League Of Doom Assembled For “40 Days To Save America”

There’s a lot at stake this election year – the economy, the environment, the war in Afghanistan, gay marriage, the souls of the righteous – and desperate times call for desperate measures. And they don’t get more desperate than 40 Days to Save America.

“All around us, we see economic decline, immorality, corruption, growing secular humanism and attacks on religious liberty,” the 40 Days website warns. “For 40 days leading up to Election Day, we will humble ourselves before the Lord, and cry out to him with one voice to save America.”

The salvation of America is apparently dependent upon 40 days of “prayer, fasting and action,” starting today and ending on Election Day. Leading the charge is a group of bigots, hate-mongers and just-plain-meanies with long-standing records of homophobia and right-wing extremism.

Good As You reports:

You have E.W. Jackson, who is busy riling up folks with the message that the Democrats are godless. You have Janet Porter, whose extreme quote bank leaves her off the invite list on even far-right efforts. You have Jim Garlow, who has likened marriage equality’s effects on children with the effects posed by 9/11. You have Harry Jackson, who has called marriage equality a “a satanic plot to destroy our seed” and equated the current fight with the times of Hitler. You have Rick Scarborough, who says AIDS is God’s judgment. And you of course have Tony Perkins, the one person on the list who says just as nasty things as the others but who still manages to maintain cable news bookings. Etc., etc.

And these are the people who are going to save America. If they’re planning on saving the country from progress or looking like a bunch of backward hicks, then mission accomplished. So y’all can stop the fasting and head on over for a celebratory meal at Chick-fil-A. Tastes like salvation.

      Please crazy people, continue to pray and starve yourselves. Remember donating to political campaigns or volunteering is a sign you don’t have faith in your god. So don’t do that. ;-)

      It’s hilarious all these splinter-group church people to treat themselves to titles such as “Bishop”, lol.

      The only attacks launched on religious liberty are the ones perpetrated by these religious right wing nuts. Absolutely no one is forcing anything on them the way they are trying to force their dogma on all residents of the USA. Of course, they are too ignorant to understand that concept.

      Pray for the coming of the Rapture,ASAP: These righteous
      nut cases will be gone and we’ll be left behind.
      The only problem I can see with this scenario is that we’ll
      be over-joyed by their absence that the Tribulations will
      seem trivial:Party Time!

      @Randal Oulton: Re 3 “It’s hilarious…

      Never thought about what you’ve said here.

      And it’s true too.

      It’s kinda strange and not easily understood.

      What would He say, if he could come back to earth and see what the people who claim they represent him are doing?
