Piggybacking on the sentiment of antigay Mormon faster Trestin Meacham, the Family Foundation of Virginia is urging Americans to take part in a 40-day fast from August 27 until October 5 in support of what it believes is “traditional” marriage between one man and one woman.
The call to action comes as a lawsuit challenging Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage enters the courtroom, validating what the Family Foundation of Virginia believes are “Pagan philosophies, a secular humanist education establishment and an entertainment industry that is absolutely determined in pushing the envelope on decency and morality.” Lulz.
Our “great land [has turned] into a country that our forefathers could not even begin to recognize,” they say. Refusing to eat food for 40 days will somehow fix this.
The fast is scheduled to end on the day court begins its session. You know, because refusing to eat when the gay marriage ban is struck down is just a losing battle at this point:
Only the church stands in support of God’s design for marriage. Our 40 Days will culminate on October 5 just before the court begins its session. We don’t know what the Lord will do. We do know that He is sovereign. Whatever happens, we must adopt the attitude of the three Hebrew children who refused to bow before the golden image in Babylon.
Expect plenty of “we don’t serve gays” stories to come soon.
