FRC Wants You on Your Knees After Marriage Rulings

The Family Research Council is planning a big event for June 30. They call it Call 2 Fall, as in fall on your knees. And on Wednesday they said, “Today’s High Court decisions only magnify the desperate need for God’s people to embrace His Call2Fall in 2 Chr 7:14. May our repentance be sincere as we seek God’s face across America this Sunday, June 30th!” Here’s the logo for the event:

Yes, after the Supreme Court handed down one of the most important victories for gay rights in the nation’s history, the FRC wants you on your knees. Seems appropriate.

    The jokes just write themselves sometimes, don’t they?

    Like Cartman sang,

    “I want to get down on my knees and start pleasing Jesus
    I want to feel his salvation all over my face.”

    I can’t decide whether that figure on the side demands photoshopping into sexual situations or getting beaten by a jesus figure wielding a shepherds crook.

    I take it the addition of “I’m in” is meant to be the punchline.

    They are so blissfully unaware of their own pompousness that they lose the ability to see irony or even very badly considered suggestive graphics when their righteousness confuses them with ego induced dumbness!

    Christians already talk about prostrating themselves before God. Or is that “prostate”? I keep getting those confused.

    Being a Talibangelical means never having to say, much less understand, the word ‘irony’.

    “Are you in yet? It’s so small, I can’t feel it.”
    “I’m in!”

    Why is the FRC encouraging a Muslim call to prayer? Or are pews shaped differently now than I remember?

    I guess all that prayin’ didn’t work. Here we are 2 days later and the ruling hasn’t been reversed, prop 8 is still dead, and lots of Teh Gayz have been signing up to get married. And I haven’t seen any news reports of a mightily displeased sky pixie sending tornados to destroy Oklahoma or Kansas in retribution.

    Imagine that.

    @9 Oh they know it means sort of like iron.

    I thought it was “prostituting”.

    Blorf: I think the proper response there is: “Yes, both!”

    Their god is too busy burning up the southwest with the 100F+ temps because Gov. Brewer pushed onto the citizens of Arizona the evil Obama’s ‘un-murikan’ Medicaid expansion. Many of us are aware that their deity can’t multi-task or shoot straight.

    Given the…creepy…subtext in many “Christian Contemporary” songs, I think the Cartman song might be appropriate, actually.

    Curt Cameron @ # 3: I want to feel his salvation all over my face.

    Please re-read the original post: our hyperchristian friends are “seek[ing] God’s face”. (Maybe they don’t like to do their thing with the light on.)

    In which case, they need to redraw that graphic to include a long white beard.

    My first association with fall in the xtian context is The Fall from Grace. The red color invokes hell (which is firey). So I’m getting a mixed message from the billboard.

    Spider Robinson once wrote a short story called “God is an Iron”. Along the lines of, someone who commits a felony is a felon.

    Best use of inadvertant (read clueless) symbolism since “Tea-baggers”

    If you have to say, “I’m in” then you aren’t just feeling inadequate.
