American Family Radio’s news director Fred Jackson filled in on “Focal Point” today for a vacationing Bryan Fischer, where he interviewed Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries about the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.
The ruling, Markell said, is evidence that Christians are now “exiles in our own country” and warned that Religious Right ministries could soon be stripped of their tax-exempt status and shut down by the government.
“We are truly exiles in our own country now,” she stated. “The Bible foretold that the world would hate us for doing what is right and it also foretold that there would come a time when the generation would be called perilous … and I think we’re there.”
“Righteous Christians are truly beyond grieved,” she continued. “They can’t believe that this has happened, not just in the lifetime, but within a relatively short period of time, within a five to seven year period of time, it just seems like not just the world has been turned over to evil, but it seems like the greatest nation that certainly in the last many hundreds of years has been turned over to a reprobate mind.”
“We may be totally silenced,” Markell warned. “Who knows? American Family Radio, Olive Tree Ministries, maybe we’ll be shut down. It would not surprise me at all … They talk like this in North Korea, in China but now we’re talking like this in America and I can only consider that it’s probably judgment on us because too much of America has gone astray spiritually.”
