Homosexual "marriage" as a legal/social construct was practiced at only one time in the past, "in the days of Noah" before the flood, according to pre-Christian Jewish writings, explained Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) and Faith2Action President Janet Porter during an Oct. 10 interview on Point of View radio. The second time gay marriage was "legal" is now, they added, noting that this is a "little scary" because Jesus Christ said, "As in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man."

"What we’re dealing with is, if we don’t correct this," said Porter, "then we are crying out for judgment, we are crying out for the end of the world as we know it, so to speak. This is serious stuff because it matters to God."

Leading into the discussion, guest host Louie Gohmert noted Faith2Action's documentary, Light Wins, which is about the LGBT movement and the attacks on real marriage. He said to Porter, “But in the video you point out, according to the Babylonian Talmud -- a book of rabbinical interpretation of the scriptures written 1,000 years before Christ -- there was only one other time in history when homosexual marriage was practiced."

"It wasn't the time of Sodom and Gomorrah," he said.  "Although homosexuality was rampant, according to the Talmud, homosexual marriage was not. It wasn’t in Babylon or even ancient Greece or Rome."

“According to rabbinical writings, the only other time in history where homosexual unions were authorized as marriage was ‘in the days of Noah,'" said Rep. Gohmert, a former state district judge for Texas.  "And then you shared Matthew 24:37, which in red letter editions, it’s in red because Jesus said, ‘as in the days of Noah so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.’"

"Kelly [Gohmert]  and I, neither one of us knew that before, because we know homosexuality was widespread in Greece and Rome, in Babylon, and especially in Sodom and Gomorrah," said Gohmertt.  "But that’s a little scary that it wasn’t legal except before the flood."

That indicates the immoral state of the world today, said Porter.

She continued, “Marriage matters because it matters to God. There’s a lot of people who say, ‘yeah, what do I care what they do, what they don’t do?’ Look, if this is true, if what the Babylonian Talmud had to say is that this was the issue that led to the flood, and that this will be a sign of what’s to come, as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man."

“What we’re dealing with is, if we don’t correct this, then we are crying out for judgment, we are crying out for the end of the world as we know it, so to speak," said Porter. "This is serious stuff because it matters to God and, historically speaking -- oh my goodness, when I heard the same thing the hairs on the back of my neck stood up."

“This is very serious and that’s the movie [Light Wins] that I really needed to make to sound the alarm," she said. "And if there are people who are listening -- they want to know what to do on marriage, what can happen -- it’s not over. It’s clearly, this battle is not over and you can get involved. Light Wins is the movie dot com is a way to get started. We’re asking people to have freedom parties, show the movie and put their faith to action."

"But yeah, this is all about whether we survive as a nation, whether we survive in this world to continue our destiny," said Porter. "We’ve got a shot, and I for one don’t want to blow it.”
