Religion News Service reports:
Organizers of the Jericho March, slated for Tuesday (Jan. 5) and Wednesday (Jan. 6), have called on “patriots, people of faith and all those who want to take back America” to travel to Washington on those days for a pair of marches to overturn the recent presidential election.
Marchers plan to blow ritual Jewish horns called shofars on the first day before circling the Supreme Court building seven times in imitation of the Israelites’ siege of the city of Jericho described in the Bible’s Book of Joshua. On Wednesday, they plan to do the same around the U.S. Capitol building.
The demonstrators will also pray that Vice President Mike Pence and members of Congress will reject slates of electors from Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Nevada, where Trump loyalists claim there was rampant election fraud.
At The Friendly Atheist, Hemant Mehta notes that this group performed the same ritual last month. Apparently Jesus wasn’t listening the first time.
