Has modern society gone homo-mad?
Acts 2:40 And [Peter] solemnly and earnestly witnessed (testified) and admonished (exhorted) with much more continuous speaking and warned (reproved, advised, encouraged) them, saying, Be saved from this crooked (perverse, wicked, unjust) generation.
In the East:
The Russian Orthodox Church destroyed a chapel after local churchmen declared it defiled because it hosted a "marriage" ceremony for two men.
The Rev. Vladimir Enert was defrocked for conducting the service for Denis Gogolyev and Mikhail Morozev at the Chapel of the Vladimir Icon of the Mother of God in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, 280 miles east of Moscow, the London Telegraph reported.
The Telegraph said a spokesman for the Orthodox Church indicated the chapel had to be demolished because it was desecrated.
The ceremony sparked outrage across the nation, even among people not associated with the church.
Moscow Patriarchate spokesman Viktor Malukhin stated: "Nothing of this kind has happened during the 1,000-year history of the Russian Church.
"According to Christian teachings," he said, "marriage is a free union of a man and a woman blessed by God, while homosexuality is a sign of human nature obscured by sin."

Anglican Bishop Orders Church Closed for Opposing Same-Sex Unions
Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2003
TORONTO – An Anglican bishop in British Columbia has ordered a church closed after it refused to support same-sex unions and declared itself independent, Canada's National Post newspaper said Tuesday.
In Russia a Chapel where the ungodly ceremony to "marry" two men took place was declared -defiled- and was actually demolished physically and the Reverend that performed the ceremony defrocked. The right thing to do in front of God
But in the liberal West, in Canada, a church is closed by the Anglican bishop for refusing to perform the same degenerated ceremony.
Truly we are at the end of time, Lord Jesus, come, come quickly, Amen.
