This is what is happening in California:
SAN FRANCISCO – 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.
Some pastors around the state and nation are encouraging their flocks to forgo solid food for up to 40 days in the biblical tradition.
These pastors are wholly lacking in ambition. Why fast for a mere 40 days?
I suggest that this fast continue until homosexuality disappears from the animal kingdom, altogether.
