Michael Youssef, an Egyptian-born Christian pastor in Atlanta, has a column in the Christian Post about England’s recent move toward marriage equality, which is supported by the conservative government. I’m sure you’ll be shocked to hear that he thinks allowing gay people to marry will destroy Western civilization and send us all to hell.
On February 5, Britain’s House of Commons voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage. The vote is extremely alarming. It could signal the beginning of the end for Western civilization as we know it…
The vote, which was 400-175, represented a major crack in the Conservative Party. More than half of its 303 members voted against or abstained from the measure. Prime Minister David Cameron may go down in history as the man who hammered the last nail in the Conservative Party coffin.
For now, the legislation has tried to appease the Church of England by exempting it. But that can be of little comfort to its faithful members and pastors. Unlike the U.S., where the government has no authority over the church, the Church of England’s tie to the British government is more than just a mere formality. The cannons of the church affect the government, and vice versa.
Sounds like a great reason to eliminate the government’s entanglement with the Anglican church, eh?
Every time Western civilization seems to reach the bottom, one discovers a new low even farther down the pit. If Western populations don’t wake up, before long they will find themselves all the way in the Lake of Fire with the devil laughing his head off.
Nah. But it made me laugh, at least. The sky is falling, the sky is falling!
