Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will be the star attraction at an upcoming “pastor's briefing” on how to stop Referendum 74, the Washington state ballot measure which would uphold a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers.

Santorum will appear on Tuesday, October 9 in Spokane and the following day in Bellevue.

At the Bellevue event, Santorum will share his thoughts on three questions with ministers: “How will same-sex marriage impact your ministry?” “How will same-sex marriage impact your congregation?” and “What can you do to stop it?”

“As a member of the U.S. Senate, Santorum has argued forcefully against policies that undermine the family and weaken America's economic competitiveness: And now he comes to Washington to help our fight for marriage, life and religious freedom,” the Family Policy Institute, which is hosting the events, said in a statement.

According to the Seattle Post Intelligencer, the Santorum dinner is sponsored by the “action” wing of the Family Research Council (FRC).

Santorum is also lending a hand to the campaign to oust Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins, one of the seven judges whose unanimous 2009 ruling brought gay marriage to the Midwest, joining the “No Wiggins Bus Tour” on Monday.
