Rainbow Flag: An Apocalyptic Warning, Says Minister

The LGBT movement's display of the rainbow flag is a sign that we're nearing the end of the world as we know it, says antigay minister Scott Lively.

"The rainbow is God's covenant with man never to destroy the Earth by water again," Lively said in a recent appearance at the Resurrection Life of Jesus Church in Sacramento. He continued, "There's an enormous warning there and, at the same time, we're also given a clue as to what's happening with apostasy in the modern age when people will raise the rainbow flag -- and there's a passage in Isiah, I forget the chapter and verse, that says 'they parade their sin like Sodom.' And that is what is exactly going on with people who have defined themselves by this particular behavior and lifestyle."

Seeking to make the point that homosexuality is a greater sin than others, Lively went on to say that the gay rights movement has grown more quickly than Islam, Darwinism, or Marxism, "and that's why God has selected it, singled out this particular behavior to be the indicator of extreme apostasy, the furthest edge of deviance, and the warning sign that things are in really, really bad shape."

Lively, by the way, has close ties to Ugandan antigay activists who are backing the pending "kill the gays" bill in that country, has written a book blaming Nazi atrocities on homosexuality, and last year suggested that the murder of Ugandan gay advocate David Kato may have been committed by a sexual partner.
