Christian Group Fasts Against Same-Sex Marriage (But Continues Eating) - VIDEO

Family foundation

Virginia-based anti-gay group Family Foundation has announced a fast in opposition to same-sex marriage - but participants will be be allowed to eat, reports Pink News.

The group’s 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance For Marriage started on August 27th and runs until October 5th, the day before the Supreme Court begins its next session and hears the first in a series of same-sex marriage appeals cases.

However, not wanting to expend too much energy on hatred, the group announced “we are asking the entire Body of Christ to join us for this feast – giving up physical food isn’t necessary – but feeding on the spiritual food provided is vital.”

Littlebitchotter

An Idaho brewery is taking aim at Idaho Governor C.L. 'Butch' Otter with a new India brown ale which it is marketing ass "Little Bitch Otter", Boise Public Radio reports:

OtterThe logo, made by Crooked Fence Brewing co-owner and marketing director Kelly Knopp, features an otter wearing a tie and cowboy hat.

"Anyone that is going to try to take away freedoms or not let someone be equal, Crooked Fence is against," says Knopp.

The beer is launching on Thursday at Pre Funk in downtown Boise. BPR adds:

Brewing co-owner and marketing director Kelly Knopp says a portion of Thursday's sales will go directly to Add the Words Idaho, and the Pride Foundation.

Add the Words Idaho co-chairperson Mistie Tolman says her organization is an all-volunteer group working to add "sexual orientation and gender identity" to the state's human rights act. "We decided to put those proceeds to good use, to further equality in the state," says Tolman. "We’ll keep working hard to try and achieve equality."

Governor Otter is appealing the recent ruling striking down the state's gay marriage ban to the Ninth Circuit, which has stayed the ruling and promised to expedite the appeal.


Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie Gets Showered By Glitter, Balls, Pickles And Chicken Wings In ‘This Is Gospel’ - VIDEO

Urie

If you haven’t eaten today, you’re in luck because bisexual singer Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco and his piano version of “This Is Gospel” literally has all the ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner (with some play time and cucumbers thrown in just to keep everyone healthy).

While he plays, his piano gets showered with glitter, smiley balls, Froot Loops, milk, eggs, glazed chicken wings and spaghetti and meatballs. No idea what raining meatballs have to do with a passionate song about rebelling against conformity, but Urie sounds so great doing it, it’s better to just sit back and enjoy the feast, while not thinking too much about how he kept playing with tinsel, cereal and spaghetti mucking up the keys.

We’ve also got the intense video for the original rock version of “This Is Gospel” as well as a “making of” for the piano version below.

Set to make their debut at SXSW on Sunday night:

Reps from Dominique Ansel Bakery tell Eater about the inspiration for the dessert — a chocolate cookie "glass" containing a "shot" of milk — came after Ansel tried his first Oreo "a few weeks ago" and was encouraged to eat it with milk, which is not "a natural combination in French culture."
