Best-selling author and No. 1 nationally syndicated columnist Cal Thomas said that gay marriage, easy divorce, worship of money, and other decadent phenomena were “forecast in prophecies” of the Old and New Testaments and are indicative of the “End Times,” adding that “it’s all coming true” and “everything is right on schedule.”
In an interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with liberal Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio show on Sirius XM Progress, Cal Thomas was asked whether he believes the Supreme Court will rule (in June) that states cannot ban homosexual marriage.
Thomas, a conservative Christian whose syndicated column is published in more than 400 newspapers nationwide, said, “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.”
“As I said in my remarks [at CPAC on Feb. 28], we worship at the golden calf of the Dow Jones Industrials – in Dow we trust, not in God,” said Thomas. “Too many conservative Christian marriages are breaking up. So, if they can’t impose morality on themselves, how do they expect to impose it on the rest of the country?”
“But 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,” said Thomas. “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.”
Signorile then asked, “When you say right on schedule, gay marriage on some level was prophesied and there will be some further outcome or response to it?”
Thomas answered, “Well, yes. If you look at what not only Jesus said, but Paul the Apostle, about what things were going to be like in the End Times, people will be lovers of lies rather than the truth. They will elevate things that are called abominations in Scripture to normality.”
“This is hard to understand for people that don’t believe in Scripture and haven’t been transformed by the renewing of their minds,” said Thomas. “But it’s all there for people to read it. It’s all coming true, all of the prophecies up to the final ones have come true. And that’s why I say that everything is right on schedule.”
Cal Thomas is the author of 10 books, his most recent, released in 2014, is entitled What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America. In addition to his regular news column, Thomas writes the Common Ground column with his liberal Democrat friend Bob Beckel. Thomas also frequently appears on the Fox News Channel.
