“We don’t know what the Lord will do.” No, but we have a pretty good idea of what the judge will do.
Well, bless their hearts. Let me be the first to encourage them to fast as long as they want. Given enough time, OUR problems will begin dying off from hunger so we can enjoy life.
What a great idea. Sadly, “good” christians will merely cheat and then lie about it, just like their pastors.
Cleaning up the genepool
Yay, stupid people die!
Hey, did you ever consider that it’s GODS WILL that these bans be struck down? Maybe God has changed his mind about gays in the last couple thousand years.
Basically what all these things boil down to is up until now their beliefs were the norm because so many others shared them. What they don’t understand is that that was the only reason they were the norm. They weren’t sanctioned by law. So, now with different influences pushing the mean to a new spot, these people are upset that their powerbase is waning. It’s tantamount to that stodgy old neighbor bitching about how things used to be. It’s a failure to adapt. None of this damages them. None of this diminishes them. They’re simply losing the power to dictate how others get to live their lives and that makes them cranky. Like big babies.
Well at least some of them would die from starvation. Actually that’s way worse.
Hunger strikes are protest methods for people with no political power who have no other means of gaining attention to their cause (which is why it’s so popular in prisons). But it’s not exactly like people are going to suddenly realize that gay marriage is an issue thanks to this. Like, who’s going to say, “Oh, why aren’t those people eating? Wait, men are marrying men? This is news to me!”
Starve yourself to death mother F.U.C.K.E.R.S.
Call me ignorant, but I never understood this form of protest. If an adult doesn’t want to eat, why should anyone care? Even for those fighting worthy causes, can’t you try doing something else?
@sejjo: because people who are completely powerless have no other options (this is why you normally hear about these kinds of protests in prisons. A famous one happened in Gitmo). It’s not to draw attention to the fact that they’re not eating, it’s to draw attention to what has outraged them to begin with (usually deplorable prison conditions, sexual violence, etc). Obviously here though people know about the cause against marriage equality. They’re just rejecting it, and the right doesn’t know how else to react and loves to make themselves into pseudo-martyrs
How about they stop drinking water as well. If the God-thing believe them right then they will never die of dehydration. Kinda like when “Christians” would throw witches in the lake with cement boots and if they floated, they weren’t witches.
Personally, I am holding out for these “Christians” to do the honorable thing; mass suicide. Come one folks, you know God is calling you to come to the other side and protect his realm from us! Get with the ticket! Just think, if you don’t take the fight to the other side, you will have…
GAYS NEXT TO YOU FOR ALL ETERNITY!!!!!
Grab your bibles and drink the Kool-aid!
IF you are a real Christian, because only REAL Christians would step up.
Hi, I think it’s now been widely credited that Trestin Meacham’s ‘fast’ was a hoax…
Where the hell was this great idea when lardos Gallagher and Brian Brown were just jumping on the bandwagon?
I couldn’t get past the name Meacham. Mmm.
Why stop at 40 days? They should add another 40 for those who eat shellfish, another 40 for those who wear mixed fibers……I mean really, this world is too wicked for them anyway. On the upside, Chick-Fil-A’s profits should plummet.
There is a million reasons that would make the forefathers not recognize America. What a ridiculous thing to say. It’s one of those statements that people make up to sound important but it really means nothing.
I know people have different definitions of what a fast is. I wonder what the pastor’s rules are. You can’t eat during the day, like Ramadan? Only liquids like a hospital? Bread and water like the old prison punishments? I’m sure they’ll be allowed to drink, water is necessary for body functions and if they all died in the first week who would be there to declare victory?
