Moral Decline

Documenting The Moral Decline That Threatens To Destroy America

Was There A Connection Between The Legalization Of Gay Marriage In California & The Sudden Outbreak Of Over 1000 Fires In California Shortly After?

Doesn't it seem like we just totally miss the message sometimes?

Some really unique events have happened in California the past few months, and most Americans would choose to believe that they could never, ever be related to each other.....even if they were.

Firstly, almost everyone has heard that gay marriage has been legal in California since June 16th, 2008. Most of us also understand, whether we like it or not, that this represents a MAJOR turning point for the United States of America.

Secondly, I recently read an article about how San Francisco's gay pride parade this summer was the biggest one they have ever held. Apparently there were hundreds of thousands of people who attended the parade this year.

Thirdly, I received the information below in my email box from Prison Fellowship. The email message talked about the shocking persecution that those who speak out against gay marriage are already starting to experience:

-----

-A Methodist retreat center recently refused to allow two lesbian couples to use a campground pavilion for a civil union ceremony. The state of New Jersey punished the Methodists by revoking the center's tax-exempt status—a vindictive attack on the Methodists' religious liberty.

-In Massachusetts, where judges imposed gay marriage a few years ago, Catholic Charities was ordered to accept homosexual couples as candidates for adoption. Rather than comply with an order that would be harmful to children, Catholic Charities closed down its adoption program.

-California public schools have been told they must be "gay friendly," as Roback Morse notes. But it will not stop with public schools. Just north of the border in Quebec, the government told a Mennonite school that it must conform to provincial law regarding curriculum—a curriculum that teaches children that homosexuality is a valid lifestyle. How long will it be before the U.S. government goes after private schools?

-Even speaking out against homosexuality can get you fired. Crystal Dixon, an associate vice president at the University of Toledo, was fired after writing an opinion piece in the Toledo Free Press in support of traditional marriage.....fired for exercising her First Amendment rights!

What in the world is happening to the United States of America? Will the definition of one of the basic building blocks of society be changed forever?

I have been thinking about what God must be thinking about all of this. As I was thinking about these things, I read an article about how there were over ONE THOUSAND fires that suddenly broke out all across California a while back. The number and intensity of these fires was really unprecedented. This just HAPPENED to take place shortly after gay marriage had been legalized.

Most of the fires were apparently started by incredibly unusual lightning storms. Del Walters, assistant regional chief of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said, “This is an unprecedented lightning storm in California, that it lasted as long as it did, 5,000 to 6,000 lightning strikes".

So is there a connection between these events? What are we to make of all this?

We would love to know what you think about these things. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions in the Comments section.

No, but I imagine you're saying that because you're only looking at the most recent attention paid to the issue and trying desperately to make a connection between the two.

You're suggesting that God either set the fires or allowed them to start as punishment. Isn't that a little Old Testament? Is God that thin-skinned?

Yeah, he is. God is a total vindictive, bigot.

Doesn't like women. Doesn't like people who other people have deemed slaves. Doesn't like people who believe in other gods. Doesn't like poeple who work on Sundays (or Saturdays whatever selective opinion you want to take on).

He demands they all be put to death.

Now, try to think logically here man. You're actually proclaiming that a fancy man in the sky is pissed of at Californians and is now setting the state a blaze.

Get your head out of your ass.

I plead with all who read this...REPENT...for the coming of the Lord is at hand. I'm begging you to repent and turn from your wicked ways...for the wrath abides upon all those who are unrighteous...your righteousness is found in Christ alone!

As far as the fires go I think God has other plans to bring His judgement into the world. Please read the book of Revelation for more detail. While we are on the subject regarding the gay population, if God had planned on you being here from creation how would you of been born? The truth is He didn't plan on hommosexuality. You blame others and God for your actions. You marry, adopt children, mess up what God intended a marriage to be along with messing up the children with your dysfunction and say everthing is great. If you turn to Jesus which includes repentance, proclaiming He is Lord over your life and deliverance from your life style you will have eternal life. If you choose not to I can only say on judgement day that you will get the biggest surprise, a tragic one. You would be sent to the lake of fire to suffer endlessly with no way out, its to late then. Salvation is God's greatest miracle and greatest gift to you, please consider eternal life....
