California Religious Leaders Call for Fasting, Prayer to End Gay Marriage
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.

Jim Garlow, the pastor of the evangelical Skyline Church in San Diego County, said he expects up to 100 young adults to spend five-plus weeks on his campus, subsisting on soup, juice and the promise of societal salvation. ...

Interesting posts. However, public prayer and fasting is unbiblical(see Matthew 6:6-7 and Matthew 6: 16-18). It does matter if the homosexuality or in other type of sine is the issue.

"From a historical perspective, homosexuals do not have a legal right to engage in homosexual sex. The common law punished homosexual sex as a crime. All of the original 13 states defined homosexual sex as a crime. Six months before James Madison attended the constitutional convention in 1787, he tried unsuccessfully to update the law to punish homosexual sex. He did this as a member of the Virginia legislature in 1786. The proposed law was known as Bill No. 64."
"There are three reasons why the homosexual lifestyle is wrong for California. First and most obvious are the health issues. The homosexual lifestyle is not a healthy one. The life expectancy for homosexuals is lower than heterosexuals. And the opportunity for a practicing homosexual to catch a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is very high.

By contrast, a married couple who are faithful to each other have little chance of catching a sexually transmitted disease. Millions of married couples spend their entire life free of sexual diseases. This cannot be said for the ‘gay’ lifestyle.

Even if we agree that homosexuals should be allowed to marry, the health consequences of..."

You are right, we need to pray and witness to the lost and dying world. They need to hear the "Gospel of Jesus Christ." And we need to show them the love and mercy that Jesus came to proclaim. But we are also told to teach the law and to establish the law. Romans 1:18-31 clearly shows the results of mankind turning away from God. We are called to be light and salt, and to redeem the times. Standing up for what is right is not something we should do as Christians, but it something we are required to do as believers. Praying for someone, showing them the mercy and love of Christ, is not approving of their sin. When Jesus healed someone, or made them whole, He said more than once, "Go and sin no more." Jesus also defined a marriage as a union between a man and woman. This is where we must stand, because we serve the one who gave us marriage. Marriage is also a picture of our relationship as the bride of Christ with Jesus.

Let His people stand, fast, pray, and then act to save the very basic institute that society is built upon, the biblical mode of the family.

Brian: I commend you on an excellent point. Your insight is a big 'amen'. The root of the problem with any and all sinners is their need to be saved. Fasting and praying to stop sin is not going to make a whole lot of difference, unless we first proclaim the gospel of salvation to all sinners, and pray for their salvation. This would result in change. Thank you for your post, God bless.

I find it a bit short-sighted to fast and pray to end gay marriage.

It would be better to pray for the salvation of those who are gay as opposed to praying for the state of California's legal definition of marriage.

The soul is what matters not what a political document says is legal or not.

Get your priorities straight.

Sodomites CAN'T HAVE marriage -
IT hurts EVERY one BY attempting to redefine marriage (PUBLIC LIARS).
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Sodomy offers the celebration of
perversion that leads to DISEASE and ULTIMATELY, HELL

mono one
gamos woman
(so the other one of the couple must be one MAN).

And by the way, if you're going to celebrate diversity, what is more diverse, 2 different genders, or all the same gender?
Diversity in marriage means a man and a woman, not the perversity of Californicate non-law.

Sodomites can't procreate to make families or children,

and God condemns(Lev.18:11)& hates Sodomites(Ps.11:5),
& their perversion-

I admire those who are fasting and praying against same-sex `marriage' because they are doing the right thing.
They also need to change Calif. laws.
[URL=]]]Sodomy is a capital crime-they should be executed[/URL]

Slavery,subjugation of women, segregation are all condemned by the the Bible-though many are ignorant of this.

i think there are larger problems to deal with right now.

the value of that dollar you have in you wallet is about to expire.

in god we trust?

what kind of mockery have we been allowing in this country in the first place.

maybe before we tell other people how to live their lives we should look to our own relationship to God.

you faith in property and money is going to be destroyed.

put it where it belongs.

good luck to you and may god not let the children starve.

Psa 52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
Psa 52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
Psa 52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
Psa 52:5 God shall likewise destroy thee forever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah

Jarrell, what you fail to understand is that God does NOT change {For I am the Lord, I change NOT-Malachi 3:6}, His word calls sodomy an abomination, and He will judge all sodomites for their sin. God has not changed His mind as far as what He ordained from the beginning, the covenant of marriage is between one man and one woman {Gen. 2:24} This perversion destroys the very core of family as ordained by a Holy God, who wants us to reproduce, and raise godly children. How do two men reproduce? Or two women? Don't you think if God thought this was 'okay', He would not have created two sexes? There is NO expiration date in the bible! God's word is eternal, and He will judge mankind by it. As a former sodomite, I praise His Holy Name for saving me from eternal damnation, and from an earthly life filled with grief, which is all homosexual relationships produce, been there, done that.

Same-sex marriage hurts no one, it undoes nor redefines nothing. It offers the same celebration of commitment to gays that heterosexuals already have. It encourages monogamy, and staying together long-term. It affirms all families including their children, who already love their parents as they are, as God affirms and loves them, and their love for each other. I admire those who are fasting and praying against same-sex marriage because they believe they are doing the right thing. Get beyond the rhetoric and the fear-mongering if you can, and you will find only something positive for all residents of my former state of California. Slavery, the subjugation of women, segregation... all things which were once upheld by the Church because they believed the Bible said so... all are now understood for what they are - prejudism, injustice and anti-Christian.
