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.”

The New York Police Department is reportedly investigating X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer in connection to an alleged sexual assault that took place early last year. Though Singer has not been formally accused of any wrongdoing, the NYPD is actively looking into events around March 23, when the assault occurred. Singer recently avoided making a court appearance after two suits accusing him of the sexual assault of two minors were dropped.
One of Singer’s accusers, Michael Egan, claimed that Singer abused him during multiple trips to Hawaii when Egan was 17 years old. Jeffrey Herman, Egan’s attorney, dropped him as a client after Egan declined a $100,000 settlement. Singer’s legal counsel, Martin Singer, unsuccessfully moved to have the entire case dismissed with prejudice, which would have made it so that Egan could not re-file his case with a new lawyer.
“Neither my client nor any of his representatives have been contacted by the NYPD, or anyone else about an alleged criminal investigation of my client,” Singer wrote in an e-mail to Buzzfeed about the new investigation. “False investigations are filed all the time and no action is taken by the authorities.”
Kim Royster, Deputy Chief with the NYPD, confirmed that the police department Special Victims squad was, in fact, looking into Singer as a potential suspect.

The BBC is facing criticism for self-censoring its Asia broadcast of the first episode of the new Doctor Who series by cutting a lesbian kiss scene, South China Morning Post reports:
Thousands of fans missed out on the kiss between lizard-woman Madame Vastra and her human wife Jenny Flint, which the BBC says was cut to comply with broadcasting regulations in Asia.
Local gay-rights groups called the edit "outrageous" and "scandalous" and said it was unfair not to treat the kiss the same as a kiss between a man and a woman.
The BBC Worldwide's London-based compliance team made the cut to conform with laws against homosexuality and broadcast content codes in countries like Malaysia and Indonesia.
The Daily Mail adds:
Campaigner Peter Tatchell said: ‘The BBC should not bow to censorship demands from other countries.
'If these countries are bigoted and are not willing to show same-sex love, they have no right to demand that the BBC conforms to their standards of prejudice.’
Last week we reported that the scene - featuring the first same-sex kiss for Doctor Who in its 50-year history - drew the ire of some anti-gay viewers in the UK.

Hate group leader Matt Barber appeared on right-wing talk radio host Janet Mefferd's radio program Thursday to discuss last week's federal ruling striking down Utah's ban on polygamous relationships and how, in their eyes, it all ties back to the gays taking a "sledgehammer" to America's society by having the audacity to fight for equal rights.
You know those of us who are 'traditionalists' if you will, those of us who recognize the biblical model of human sexuality and marriage, frankly we are just out-propagandized. These people are very, very good at what they do and they know to play soundbites and to use these little emotional anecdotes...I just hope that people will recognize that when we deviate and try to redefine something that cannot be redefined — particularly when that thing, we’re talking about marriage here, is a fundamental cornerstone of any society — if we take a sledgehammer to that cornerstone, the results are disastrous and everything comes tumbling down.
In a separate audio clip, Barber and fellow Liberty Council bigot Mat Staver speak out against Fayetteville, Arkansas recent passage of a LGBT inclusive nondiscrimiantion ordinance, which the two think is just the "sexual anarchist movement's" attempt to force the city to engage in a "mass delusion under penalty of law"
Whatever that means..
