Southern Baptist President Fred Luter has linked gay marriage to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un's recent threat to launch a nuclear strike against the United States.

In an appearance on TruNews, Luter agreed with host Rick Wiles' theory that the two events appear to be connected.

β€œYou've got this happening over here and you've got this happening over there: Could the two be connected? Could our slide into immorality be what is unleashing this mad man over here in Asia to punish us?” asked Wiles.

β€œIt could be a possibility. I'm not that strong in prophecy but I would not be surprised that there's not a connection there simply because of the fact we've seen it happen in Scripture before. I would not be surprised that at the time when we are debating same-sex marriage, at a time when we are debating whether or not we should have gays leading the Boy Scout movement, I don't think it's just a coincidence that we have a mad man in Asia who is saying some of the things that he's saying,” Luter said.
