Conservative columnist Cal Thomas, one of the co-founders of the Moral Majority more than 35 years ago, predicts that the Supreme Court will strike down state bans on same-sex marriage, which he says is a sign that the end times are upon us. And he’s okay with that.
“I think it’s going to go 5-4 or even 6-3 in favor of same-sex marriage. All of these things are not the cause of our decadence, they’re a reflection of it,” he told me in an interview for SiriusXM Progress at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland on Saturday…
“If you read the Scriptures, as I do, in both testaments all of these things are forecast in prophesies, in the book of Daniel and what Jesus and Paul said, so I’m not worried about it,” Thomas continued, describing his surprising reaction to the Supreme Court possibly ruling in favor of marriage equality. “I say everything is right on schedule. I’m trying to shore up my own family first and, hopefully, that will be an example to other people… If you look at not only what Jesus said, but Paul the Apostle, about what things would be like in the end times, people will be lovers of lies rather than the truth. They will elevate things that are called abomination in scripture to normality… All of the prophesies up to the final ones have come true. And that’s why I say that everything is right on schedule.”
It cracks me up that people think the Bible predicts everything that’s happening with such vague precision. “Wars and rumors of wars” and “people will be lovers of lies rather than the truth.” As if that could not have been said, indeed was said, about every other time in the last 2000 years. And especially since the early Christians were certain that they were living in the end times, backed up by the fact that Jesus told them that they would not taste death before he returned. These “prophecies” might as well have said “people will drink water and eat food.”
