Matt Barber is predictably unhappy that the residents of Ireland overwhelmingly voted to legalize gay in their country, declaring on Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program today that Ireland is now in rebellion against God and has succumbed to the “cancer” that will ultimately destroy western civilization.
“What we saw happen in Ireland was clearly a mass rebellion against God’s design, clear design, millennia-old design for the institution of marriage,” he said. “As history has shown over and over again, any society that abandons monogamous man-woman marriage as a central aspect of that culture and embraces sexual relativism as they have now done in Ireland, that culture and that society is not long for the world.”
Barber went on to say that not only has this vote brought “great shame and great embarrassment on the Irish people,” but it also signals that the cancer of moral relativism is sweeping across western civilization.
“I don’t know how much longer we can expect [to survive],” he said. “Certainly, this novelty of so-called gay marriage is going to be one of the primary, I believe, drawbacks that end up potentially leading to the end of western civilization as we certainly know it now, at least.”
