Yup. Prayer did it.
The fact that Focus on the Family poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into defeating Prop 8, and that Utah Mormons pumped in hundreds of thousands more, and that over 70% of California's black voters (how ironic is that?) voted for the amendment -- all of that is irrelevant.
The most important factor was prayer.
Or so says San Diego pastor, Jim Garlow. He and a group of "prayer warriors" went into prayer-attack mode and even fasted for 40 days. And god heard their prayers. And Prop 8 went down. Yup.
Garlow, verified by God, got a bit feisty: "We're sending a strong message from California: don't mess with marriage. Don't mess with marriage."
Garlow's got a bit of a problem, though, as do all the Focus on the Family freaks and the Mormon morons.
All these people, and all the prayer warriors, and all the fasting did not convince god to stop the election of Senator Obama.
What does that mean? God hates homosexuals but Obama as president is OK? But Obama doesn't seem to have a problem with gay marriage.
Ain't these christianists funny?
