What would you do?
Trailing in the polls, Money Mitt’s devotees have decided that a little divine intervention is what they need for their candidate. We all know that it’s not uncommon for religious groups to pray people up in times of need, and Mitt’s community has decided to fast this Sunday…so the strugglin’ candidate can keep up with Barack’s eloquence in the upcoming debates.
They’ve been circulating a request via email that sympathetic Latter-day Saints join them in forgoing food and water on Sunday in a collective effort to support the candidate.
“I am asking you to join me and my family … by fasting and praying for Mitt Romney that he will be blessed in the debates, which will be held Oct. 3rd,” says an email posted early Wednesday (Sept. 26) by The Student Review, an off-campus paper for Brigham Young University students. “I know that seems like such a small thing but I believe ‘from small things, great things can come about.’ ”
The email went on: “I know that fasting and praying brings about miracles.”
Others in the email chain have suggested putting Romney’s name on the “temple prayer roll,” which is typically reserved for those who are sick.
McKay Coppins, a political reporter for BuzzFeed, also reported the fasting effort, saying that “sources who have received it said it has reached Latter-day Saints in Utah, California, Nevada and Colorado at least.”
Maybe they should fast until the votes are in the morning of November 7th?
