“Hundreds of pastors have called on their congregations to fast and pray for passage of a ballot measure in November that would put an end to gay marriage in California. The collective act of piety, starting Wednesday and culminating three days before the election in a revival for as many as 100,000 people at the San Diego Chargers’ stadium, comes as church leaders across California put people, money and powerful words behind Proposition 8.” [AP]

    I hope they all starve to death.

    Is that mean?

  • ChicagoJimmy

    I suggest we retaliate with drug fueled orgies.

  • DairyQueen

    Let them fucking starve!!! Assholes.

    Hopefully they’ll be too weak to get to the polls! Jimmychicago… How would that be different than a typical weekend? :-)

    Because I think these sorts of vigils have no impact on the outcome, I am actually delighted to see them throw so much energy into pointless rallies like this. And should the bill be defeated (O Lord I hope so), it will make the victory all the more sweet to see them realize quite clearly that A) it just wasn’t God’s will (hyuk hyuk) and B) prayer don’t mean shit.

    PS: I love that thumbnail image for the blog post. You’re on a roll this week with those.

    I hope this effort will be as effective as the organized prayers for rain on Obama’s acceptance speech were. In any case, most of those fundies could do with losing a few pounds anyway–except for the brittle-thin women, of course, who will just fade away. Wins all around!

    If I were as evil as all these pious fucks I would wish for an earthquake to swallow up the stadium. But since i’m not evil, I will just say “bless their hearts”. That’s southern for “fuck you”.
