Last month, a federal judge acquitted creationist tax scofflaw Kent Hovind of contempt of court and dismissed conspiracy and mail fraud charges against him and "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is pretty sure that it was the prayer effort organized by his "Salt and Light Brigade" that made the difference.
Fresh off of that victory, Daubenmire is now organizing a solemn assembly outside the Supreme Court on June 14 at which right-wing Christians will gather to repent for America and ask God to break through to Justice Anthony Kennedy so that he will vote against legalizing gay marriage.
As Daubenmire told radio host Chuck Wilder yesterday, his Salt and Light Brigade hopes to organize prayer rallies all over America to take place at the same time in order to "focus their guns at the same target" and "punch a hole in the heavenlies."
"We're going to have a solemn assembly of prayer and repentance, asking God, please God, help us rescue marriage," Daubenmire said. "And we're going to totally focus on Justice Kennedy, we believe he is the swing vote, and we're just going to ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and turn the heart of Justice Kennedy that he might see the error of his ways and protect marriage."
Not everyone will be able to join Daubenmire outside the Supreme Court for this rally, he realizes, which is why he is asking for people to organize rallies of their own to take place at the same time in order to increase the power of their prayer effort, likening it to hundreds of people gathering with Super Soaker squirt guns and focusing their aim all on the same spot instead of just spraying in all directions.
"Concentrated, focused prayer" is what Daubenmire needs, he said. "We're going to focus all of our power in the same direction rather than just sporadically squirting our guns up in the air."
