Minnesotans fear God's judgment

The head of a Minnesota-based Messianic Jewish ministry fears her home state could face God's judgment, now that it has legalized same-sex "marriage."

By a 37-30 vote, the Minnesota Senate this week approved a statute legalizing homosexual "marriage." The vote came on the heels of the state House approving the same measure last week, and Democratic Governor Mark Dayton has promised a "celebratory" signing ceremony on the steps of the state Capitol on Tuesday, May 21. The law takes effect August 1.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, laments that The North Star State has become a mecca for many unpleasant things.

"We're the occult capital of America," she tells 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."

And Markell believes Minnesota Christians are concerned about God's judgment on the state.

"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," the Olive Tree Ministries founder warns.

But she is encouraged that Minnesotans are beginning a recall effort against two lawmakers who voted for homosexual marriage.
