Janet Markell of Olive Tree Ministries, which is broadcast on Christian talk radio station KKMS, told OneNewsNow, an affiliate of the American Family Association, that marriage equality could lead to the destruction of Minnesota.
“We’re the occult capital of America,” she told OneNewsNow. “We certainly have more Islamic influence probably than any other place, other than Dearborn, Michigan. We’re certainly one of the gay capitals, and now with homosexual marriage a reality, many Christians, solid pro-family-type people — we don’t know where to run to.”
She warned of God’s judgment.
“Whether it be economically or some weather-related kind of a tragedy, but God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality; He speaks out on this issue in a very clear manner and calls this an abomination.”
Paul Ridgeway on KKMS lamented to his listeners on Friday after the bill passed the House.
“It’s terrible. I tell you folks we are sliding so fast.” He said that pastors had told him that “the floodgates of evil have opened up and “that Satan has opened up the demonic realm in allowing this happen.”
“This could not be worse what happened today. The floodgates of evil are open. This one of the worst days that Minnesota has ever had from a political and spiritual standpoint.”
Three organizations came together to try and defeat the marriage equality bill: Minnesota Family Council, the National Organization for Marriage, and the Minnesota Catholic Conference. Collectively, they form Minnesota for Marriage.
