Speaking about the White House being lit up with gay-rainbow lights to celebrate the recent ruling on homosexual marriage, Reverend Franklin Graham said it was “outrageous” and a “slap in the face” to Americans who support traditional marriage.
“God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgment,” Graham explained. “God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent. One man, Noah, was found righteous and escaped God’s judgment with his family. The rainbow was a sign to Noah that God would not use the flood again to judge the world.”
The White House said in a statement, “Tonight, the White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world. The pride colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and tonight, these colors celebrate a new chapter in the history of American civil rights.”
Such arrogance comes with harsh consequences. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus tells His Apostles what the world will be like when He returns.
“First He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation,” Jesus said. “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.”
“Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all,” Jesus continued. “Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”
Graham also said the Supreme Court’s ruling poses a serious threat to traditional marriage, because “the gay and lesbian community…will want to keep coming and taking away the freedoms that we have.”
Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily blocked enforcement of a law that would have closed most Texas abortion clinics. Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups filed a lawsuit in 2013, claiming the passage of several safety regulations would have an adverse affect on facilities.
Chief Justice John Roberts, as well as Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas all said they would’ve allowed the law to move forward. The regulations were to officially take effect July 1.
More and more man is becoming his own god as pointed out in Genesis: “…your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
