Virginia’s Family Foundation has drawn the ire of LGBT activists after the organization recently declared a 40-day Christian fast to protect the state’s Marriage Amendment, which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman, from federal interference.
In a post on Citizen Link last Monday, the Family Foundation invited Christians to join them in “40 days of prayer, fasting and repentance for marriage from Aug. 27 through Oct. 5, 2014.”
“The Virginia Marriage Amendment, which affirms God’s design for marriage as the union of one man and one woman, is being challenged in federal court. Our recently elected Attorney General, Mark Herring, has not only refused to defend Virginia in court, he has joined the plaintiffs in attacking our Marriage Amendment. The issue of marriage is out of the hands of the legislators and the people they represent, and is now in the hands of unelected, unaccountable judges,” noted the organization in the post seeking to rally Christians to wage a spiritual battle against gay marriage.
“The Supreme Court begins its session on Oct. 6. We fully expect it to take a marriage case sometime in the next year. In the natural, it looks like a David vs. Goliath battle. The federal government, the news media, Hollywood, the public education system and big business all are arrayed on the side of same-sex ‘marriage,'” the post continued.
“Only the church stands in support of God’s design for marriage. Our 40 days will culminate on Oct. 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,” it said.
