Blount County has drawn up a resolution that asks God to spare its citizens when he passes judgement on marriage equality.

The Tennessean reports that a Tennessee commission in Blount County is set to pursue a resolution asking God to forgive its citizens and not inflict his wrath upon the county in response to the legalization of gay marriage.

The resolution states in part: “We adopt this resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities…. As the Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon the safety of the Lamb of God to save us

Situated in East Tennessee near Knoxville, the commission for Blount County is scheduled to discuss the resolution at great length on Tuesday, a document drawn up to condemn “judicial tyranny and [petition] God’s mercy.”
