On the plus side it sounds nice, but in all honesty they are not really undergoing "famine".

They are undergoing a fast. A famine is where they are eating poor food for months at a time and drinking unclean water. Famine kills people with ease.

While laudable, to compare their famine to real famine is kind of not getting the point of real suffering as opposed to the masochism they are trying to portray.

Why is this in FSTDT? This isn't bigoted, racist, misogynist, homophobic, ignorant, irrational or any of the other things which fundie quotes usually are. This is NICE. This is actually a rare example of fundies doing a NICE, COMPASSIONATE thing which Christians are supposed to do.

And lemme guess, you're going to hold the food hostage while you force them to sit through several hours of your religious indoctrination before they get to eat, right?

Not fundie and I hope that they made a lot of money.

I hope some of that money made it to the supposed cause, religious charities in particular have a bad track record for keeping over 90% for the church or using it to feed their insatiable appetite for more Bibles.
