During a radio interview with Sandy Rios of the American Family Association yesterday, Pastor Scott Lively said that homosexuality “is the issue of the end times" and that God brought on Noah's flood "when they started writing wedding songs to homosexual marriage," reports RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
Pastor Lively said: "The last straw for God before He brought the flood was when they started writing wedding songs to homosexual marriage and Jesus said that you’ll know the end times because it will be like the days of Noah. There’s never been a time in the history of the world since before the flood when homosexual marriage has been open and celebrated, and that’s another sign that I believe that we’re close to the end."
"... We’re entering into a time in which standing for the truth of God is going to cost you more than just a few people walking out of your congregation and the temptation to compromise with the world, especially on this issue."
"I think this is the issue of the End Times, homosexuality. It’s present, if you do a careful investigation of all the scriptures dealing with this from the beginning and all the way to the end, God is painting a very clear picture that this represents the outer extent of rebellion against Him in a society and the last thing that happens before wrath comes."
