SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hundreds of pastors have asked their
congregations to fast and pray for passage of a ballot measure that
would put an end to gay marriage in California.
The collective prayer and fasting began Wednesday and will culminate three days before the November election in a revival for as many as 100,000 people at the San Diego Chargers' stadium.
The Reverend Jim Garlow, pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego County, says he expects up to 100 young adults to spend five-plus
weeks on his campus, subsisting on soup and juice.
Skyline has banded together with Roman Catholic, Mormon, Southern Baptist, Orthodox Jewish and Seventh-Day Adventist congregations in support of Proposition 8, which would amend California's constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
