This one is easy for theists. They will point to anything. For example, the worldwide recession. US jobs going overseas, unemployment rates going up, etc. People will say these things are happening because of sin, and it's getting worse because we are now openly accepting sin in our society. But there are still "good christians" in the USA who "follow the bible" and condemn homosexual sex for what it is, an abomination in the eyes of god. Once society completely accepts gay sex as normal and natural, it will be at this point that god can no longer stand our wicked ways and will wipe us off the map like in the old testament.

I think there are very few christians who actually believe this, but they must convince themselves that it is true because they want to hold onto their magical afterlife and be able to see dead relatives again. If that means accepting insane doctrines, so be it. Wanting something to be true doesn't make it true, but of course we all know this already.
