Why "for prayer and fasting," and not "for thinking it through" or "seeking wisdom" etc.? It's interesting to me how often people think it's godly to omit the cognitive. In this case, though, the more honest wording would probably be "to ponder the consequences and come around to giving the EC what it wants."

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.

Because it is Uth's dig against the EC for attacking him. He is going to fast and pray and wander the desert of southern Florida for 40 days... yeah right.

In other words, its Christian politics.

This sort of limp-wristed pandering to a "pastor" (read wolf) is why the Church is in such dire straits.  Satan loves it when we are "more gracious than God."  I'm sick of it!
