Christian Group Plans 40-Day Fast Against Marriage Equality

A Christian group based in Virginia is encouraging followers and other churches across the nation to join a 40-day fast against marriage equality.

The Family Foundation of Virginia, which "seeks to establish through citizen advocacy and enactment of Virginia law a safe, prosperous and wholesome climate for families," released a statement about the anti-gay fast on its website on April 10. The press release is titled "40 Days Of Prayer, Fasting And Repentance For Marriage" and says the hunger strike will run from Aug. 27 through Oct. 5.

From the statement:

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.

Pastors have been asked to sign up their churches via an online form.

Same-sex marriage, which is banned in Virginia, is currently at the forefront of the state's politics. Earlier this month, Attorney General Mark Herring offered his support to uphold a judge's ruling that the ban is unconstitutional. Defendants of the ban have attempted to argue same-sex marriage is not a fundamental right and may open the door to polygamy and incestuous unions.

Earlier this year, a Utah man named Trestin Meacham said he was going on a hunger strike until the state nullifies its decision to allow same-sex marriages. On April 1, he apparently moved to Russia, where he says he'll "be able to live away from unstable people within the gay movement."

Prayer does indeed move mountains.

May all of these who choose to fast, and pray be heard by God.

I will be praying for this cause, myself!!!

 I am not religious by any means, but I really do hope that someday people will stop worrying about who is sleeping with who, or marrying who and just mind their own business. It's not that hard. NO ONE PERSON, or religion is here to "Save" anyone. Each person is here for their own path.

Please educate yourself. Pema as to what fasting is.

It is not the same as a hunger strike.

Where two or three are gathered in His name there He is in their midst.

    Actually I do believe that what people do should be scrutinized, particularly by parents, who are now living in a world where ideas such as gay marriage are everywhere:  on TV and in Social media and with entertainment figures are coming out of the closet, publicly.

    Gay marriage is an adult subject, a union of two adults.

    It has NOTHING to do with children!!!!

    I support the Christians (I am Catholic) who are incensed about these ideas being forced onto us, not only by said people who have come out of the closet, but by the President himself...

    I also support using the Bible to point out why homosexuality and gay marriage is not God's plan for His people.

    This country does indeed need a lot of prayer in this regard.
