An Israeli official says that homosexual activity is the cause of a recent earthquake

A member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, says that the recent earthquake that was felt across Israel was the result of the homosexual activity practiced in the country. This charge made by Knesset member Slomo Benazir follows up another statement made by a fellow member of the Knesset Nissam Zeev that stirred controversy when he said that the local Israeli gay movement was a plague that could destroy Jewish Israel.

Both members of the Knesset referred to the Gomorrah, extra-Biblical Jewish writing that mentions a number of causes for earthquakes, one of which is homosexuality, which they say the Israeli Knesset legitimizes.

The statement by two members of the Israeli Knesset that the homosexual movement of Israel is the cause of earthquakes in the area and may destroy a Jewish Israel has a connection to the words of Jesus Christ when He discussed the Last Days.

During a special Knesset session on Israel's preparedness for the possibility of another earthquake hitting the region, a member of the Knesset with the Shas party, an ultra-orthodox political party, quoted the Gomorrah which does indeed mention that homosexuality can be the cause of earthquakes. By the way, this Knesset session was also focused on the report from scientists that Israel must be ready for the "Big One", an earthquake of a magnitude of 7.0 or better on the Richter Scale. The Shas political party has been fighting the public demonstrations by the Gay and Lesbian community in Israel saying not only will it destroy the Jewish state of Israel, but any politician that backs such a movement will be judged by God face to face in the heavens.

Jesus, during His preaching ministry near the end of His time on Earth, did warn of how these homosexual activities would be a Sign of the Times of the End and His return to earth, Luke 17:28-30. A reading of Genesis 19 reveals God's thinking about Sodomy, homosexuality, He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for such activity.

The Lord warns that Sodomy will be prevalent in the day that He returns to Earth.
