Hate Group Wants You On Your Knees… to Pray the Gay Away

The Family Research Council wants homophobes to get "on their knees" to pray for America in the wake of Wednesday's Supreme Court rulings on Prop. 8 and DOMA. Too bad the dude in the ad above looks like he's giving a beej instead of seeking repentance for wishing he was at Pride this weekend instead.

According to the hate group's campaign announcement, Americans have always made important decisions while on their knees. Why, this here country wouldn't exist if it wasn't for all that bending over!

Churches in all of America's original colonies united in prayer "on their knees" in July, 1775 at the outbreak of the War for Independence (see story).

Their prayers were heard, and resulted in the Declaration of Independence (our nation's birth certificate), the U.S. Constitution (the framework that would end slavery, give voting rights to men and women of every race, and produce more religious, political, economic and personal liberty for Americans, than people in other lands had ever seen.

I always assumed the Founding Fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution et al. But now I know they prayed it into being.

There are 332 churches participating in California alone — ugh — but you can sign up right here to find some pals to get down with.
