Joyner: Gay Marriage = Mark of the Beast

We already know that if the Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage nationwide, it will lead to the collapse of the family and destroy the country, human civilization and perhaps even the entire human species. What’s left at this point? The mark of the beast, says Rick Joyner.

The “abomination of desolation” that was prophesied by Daniel, Jesus, and the first century apostles could have been translated “the abomination that desolates.” Because homosexuality is referred to as an abomination in Scripture, and its impact on Western culture is so quickly and profoundly desolating the moral fabric of Western civilization, it is to be expected that many will start to consider this “the abomination that desolates.”

Who could have dreamed just two decades ago that we would have major cities celebrating “Days of Decadence” with all manner of perversions being performed and flaunted openly in our streets? Who would have thought that such a moral and religious nation could fall so quickly to the ultimate national depravity spoken of in Isaiah 5—calling what God calls “good,” “evil,” and what God calls “evil,” “good,” while the dishonorable are honored and the honorable are dishonored? Is that not precisely what has happened to America in just the last generation?

The meltdown of morality in our military could be happening even faster. Just a few years ago, the U.S. military was such a bastion of morality and integrity that adultery was considered grounds for dismissal because one’s vows had been broken. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was the handwriting on the wall that a devastating change was coming. But who could have foreseen the pace of the desolation of our military since homosexuality was openly allowed in the ranks? It moved quickly from everyone having to accept it, to everyone having to celebrate it if you expected any further promotions, to now being forced out if you do not celebrate it.

Christians are now openly discriminated against, if not persecuted, in the U.S. military. Not only are some of the best and brightest leaving the military, they are no longer choosing it as a possible career.

The same is taking place throughout government services on all levels, as well as corporations, education, and the media, as was once the case for a long time in arts and entertainment. Now, with a single Supreme Court decision it could be that Christians, Muslims, and Jews that honor their books as the word of God will not be able to “buy, sell, or trade” in America without the constant threat of losing your business, or your position and livelihood, because of an offended homosexual.

Even if this is not “the mark of the beast,” it will be for those who are now losing what they, in some cases, have given their lives to build, because they would not compromise their religious convictions in order to buy, sell, or trade. If the Supreme Court decision falls the way it is expected to, we can be sure that very soon every Christian in America will have to make a similar choice between obeying the Word of God or this beast.

Behold, the extraordinary power of The Gay! Resistance is futile!

    I thought the movie “Days of Decadence” with Tom Cruise was just OK. That scene where he is dressed as the cowboy from the Village People was kind of silly

  • wreck

    The tears, they are so sweet.

  • dingojack

    Yes – in days gone by America’s military was a bastion of moral integrity where committing adultery could get you discharged — and committing torture a promotion.

    Odd. “Ultimate national depravity” is an ingredient in my off-off-off brand Japanese breakfast cereal, Foodios.(*1) And the puzzle on the back of the box is a wiring diagram from a ’78 Toyota Tercel.(*2)

    “and its impact on Western culture is so quickly and profoundly desolating the moral fabric of Western civilization”

    Too bad you don’t have any evidence, wingnut. The people I see doing the most harm to morality is rightwing liars.

    “Just a few years ago, the U.S. military was such a bastion of morality and integrity”

    Yet they didn’t do much to prevent rape. Funny that Joyner doesn’t mention that.

    “Christians are now openly discriminated against, if not persecuted, in the U.S. military.”

    It’s actually the right-wing Christians in the military who are harassing and discriminating against everybody else.

    “it could be that Christians, Muslims, and Jews that honor their books as the word of God only pay attention to the handful of homophobic verses will not be able to “buy, sell, or trade” in America without the constant threat of losing your business, or your position and livelihood, because of an offended homosexual a fine.”

    Or you could just not discriminate in the services you provide. Just get over yourselves.

    I, for one, welcome our fine young strapping, muscular, well-hung, Gay Overlords*.

    Along with the increasing visibility of gay men and women in the US armed services, we now have a record-high troop / veteran suicide rate.

    There couldn’t have been anything else to have brought that about in the last 12 years, could there?

    Um, anyone who’s ever read the First Amendment, which not only allowed both Protestants and Catholics to practice their faith – or celebrate their sin, depending on your viewpoint – it also allowed con men like Joseph Smith, L. Ron Hubbard and Joel Osteen to create entirely new “churches” that are totally invalid, theologically, to mainstream Christianity.

    Is she talking about Cinco de Mayo? Superbowl Sunday? WTF day is she talking about?

  • dingojack

    Wasn’t Days of Decadence Tom Cruise’s less than successful porn sequel to that film that also had Nicole Kidman in it?

    @eric – the Gay Pride Parade in Chicago, obviously. And you thought it was a laugh riot for the whole family! Shame, shame…

    “Just a few years ago, the U.S. military was such a bastion of morality and integrity…” Really? I guess it must have entered that golden age of morality & ethics after my discharge, because that sure as hell wasn’t the military I was in.

    … Christians, Muslims, and Jews that honor their books as the word of God …

    That’s some contradictory ‘word of God’ he’s endorsing there.
