Right-wing Columnist Cal Thomas Preparing His Family For 'End Times' Following Gay Marriage Ruling: LISTEN

Conservative columnist Cal Thomas has said that same-sex marriage is a sign of “end times,” reports Huffington Post.

Speaking in an interview with Michelangelo Signorile, Thomas said the Supreme Court is likely to vote in favor of marriage equality and that there is not much he can do about it “because “everything is right on schedule.” Earlier today, the high court announced it would hear arguments in four same-sex marriage cases April 28. 

Before speaking with Signorile, Thomas had just moderated a panel on the threat to “religious freedom” that included Dana Loesch and Tony Perkins, the leader of listed hate group the Family Research Council.

Thomas“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.

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… If you look at not only what Jesus said, but Paul the Apostle, about what things would be like in the end times, people will be lovers of lies rather than the truth. They will elevate things that are called abomination in scripture to normality… All of the prophesies up to the final ones have come true. And that’s why I say that everything is right on schedule.”

In 2012, Thomas said that Rachel Maddow was the best argument for her parents to use contraception.

Three Men In Thailand Become The World's First Married 'Throuple'

Throuple Thailand

In a move that will have conservative pundits champing at the bit to claim that they'll be forced to marry their dogs before the year is out, three gay men in Thailand have entered into what is thought to be the world’s first three-way same-sex marriage, reports The Mirror.

6a00d8341c730253ef01b7c737d130970b-800wiThe three men in their 20s - Joke, Bell and Art - exchanged vows on Valentine’s Day in Uthai Thani Province.

Art and Joke have been together since 2010. The couple met Bell and after he was hospitalized with a congenital disease, Joke and Art proposed a three-way marriage.

Bell said:

"Some people may not agree and are probably amazed by our decision, but we believe many people do understand and accept our choice. Love is love, after all."

Joke added that the three men "love each other and live together like brothers", something he hoped the world could understand.

Although same-sex marriage is not recognized in Thailand, the trio were able to marry under Buddhist law.

In January, we reported that an amendment to Thailand’s constitution will bring legal recognition for a third gender.


Zachary Quinto 'Not a Huge Fanatic of Marriage, Gay or Straight'

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Zachary Quinto has spoken candidly on the topic of marriage. Though the actor wants kids, and has been a staunch advocate of marriage equality, he says he is not sold on the concept of marriage, gay or straight.

Says Quinto: “There are benefits to the institution of marriage. I personally am not a huge fanatic of marriage, whether it’s gay or straight. Commitment and relationships are a very individual thing, and I don’t stand to tell other people what to do or who to do it with, but for me, love is defined by two people in an intimate and personal way, and superimposing an institution on that isn’t necessarily for me, the most exciting idea.”

He does reiterate that he has been a supporter of marriage equality, saying: "The fact that we’ve made such progress and marriage equality is very, very near and tangible and hopefully right around the corner, that frames it a little bit differently for me... It’s something I have been an advocate for and a fighter for in the past eight years. I want to see that continue."

McmillanQuinto, who is still dating model Miles McMillan (right), says "maybe there will come a day when [marriage] makes perfect sense for me personally...We’ll see… I don’t think either of us feel that we have to hurry up and do this.”

However, Quinto is positive on children: “I definitely want kids, for sure. I gravitate toward the people in my life who have kids...I love fostering relationships with them and watching them discover the world."

Finland Enacts Citizen-Supported Same-Sex Marriage Law: VIDEO

President Sauli Niinistö

Finland has become the last Nordic country to provide for same-sex marriage after President Sauli Niinistö (above) signed a bill into law last Friday, reports The Advocate.

The Finnish parliament passed the legislation last November.

The signing is the first piece of legislation brought to Finland’s Parliament as a citizens' initiative.

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb07ba1bf1970d-300wiAija Salo of Finnish LGBT group National Seta, said:

"This was a very large and unique campaign, it was the first citizen's movement. The public spoke. It is very important to a lot of people personally and also symbolically, and people are very happy."

The law will allow for same-sex marriages by March 2017.

Last December, almost 7,800 Finnish citizens resigned from the Lutheran church after Archbishop Kari Mäkinen (right) supported the vote in favor of gay marriage.

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Homophobic Bakers are 'Blessing' Gay Couples for Refusing to 'Participate in Sodomy' - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d0b6b990970c-500wi

Demon-obsessed homophobe, religious zealot and Colorado House of Representatives embarrassment Gordon Klingenschmitt has said the bakery owners in Oregon who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple are “a blessing” to gay people because they refuse “to participate in their acts of sodomy."

Speaking on his unhinged “Pray In Jesus Name” show, Klingenschmitt started with the conspiracy theories, arguing that the government is out to bankrupt Christian business owners.

He continued that bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein "are being persecuted for righteousness sake" because they “are not going to endorse” a sin that is “harmful to you in the homosexual community.”

Pat Robertson: Catering For Same-Sex Weddings Like Servicing Man-Dog Weddings - VIDEO

Robertson

Bats--t televangelist Pat Robertson has said that businesses catering for same-sex weddings might as well be providing their services for man-dog weddings, reports Right Wing Watch.

Speaking on his increasingly bonkers The 700 Club about yesterday's ruling that florist Barronelle Stuzman violated Washington's anti-discrimination law by refusing to service a same-sex wedding, Robertson argued that if “somebody wanted to marry his dog” the florist has now “got to have flowers for that.”

“This is crazy,” Robertson claimed.  Yes it is, Pat. Yes it is.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Not known for his strong grasp on reality, Pat recently said that gay people will die out "because they can't reproduce."
