Will you fast for women’s ordination?

As a returned missionary, I am well-versed in the true and everlasting religious salesmanship technique: the commitment pattern, which emphasizes the use of “will you” questions to encourage people to commit to religious challenges.  Equal in Faith organizers have challenged us to fast for gender equity, including inclusion of women into the LDS and Catholic  priesthoods and other interfaith religious opportunities that currently exclude women.  In a recent post, I explained the Equal in Faith fast and listed five ways you could participate.  (Please review the post here.) Now, it is time to commit.
