Stacy Swimp is the most outspoken of a group of right-wing black ministers here in Michigan, routinely saying the most inane things about pretty much any subject. In an interview with a fellow anti-gay bigot, he says that gay marriage is going to bring on the end times, just like in Noah’s day.
If the Supreme Court were to issue a favorable marriage equality ruling, Swimp told Cleveland anti-gay activist Molly Smith in a September 23 interview, “I see America looking like what Jesus said the world looking like. He said, ‘As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the Son returns.’”
“You see,” he continued, “in Noah’s day, you had complete lawlessness, men did what was right in their own eyes, according to the Bible, and there were no moral boundaries that men respected. And so we are at the threshold in our global society.”
“If this happens to become law, you’re going to see complete chaos and lawlessness,” he said, adding that such a ruling would lead to “broken families” and “escalated crime.”
I’ve got news for you: Noah didn’t exist. He was a character in an older story that was borrowed by the men who wrote the book of Genesis. There was no global flood. These are myths. But even so, shouldn’t he be thrilled that the end times are upon us? Shouldn’t that be a good thing to him?
