US Televangelist: Equal Marriage in England and Wales Signals ‘The Beginning of the End’
A US Christian televangelist has written that moves towards marriage equality in England and Wales were “alarming”, that it could lead to the end of the world, and that “Western civilisation” would end up in hell if it doesn’t “wake up.”
Last Tuesday, MPs voted in favour of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill by 400 to 175, a majority of 225.
Writing for the Christian Post, Televangelist Michael Youssef, wrote a piece criticising moves towards equality, and saying that a rift was forming in the Conservative Party, and suggested that David Cameron had caused irreversible damage to his party.
He wrote: “On February 5, Britain’s House of Commons voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage. The vote is extremely alarming. It could signal the beginning of the end for Western civilization as we know it.
“The idea of same-sex marriage is troubling even to some homosexuals, let alone those who hold a biblical conviction that marriage is intended by the Creator to be between a man and a woman.
“The vote, which was 400-175, represented a major crack in the Conservative Party. More than half of its 303 members voted against or abstained from the measure. Prime Minister David Cameron may go down in history as the man who hammered the last nail in the Conservative Party coffin.”
