And abortion will be outlawed

And gay marriage will be overturned

And black people will have separate drinking fountains again...

And seriously people, none of these things is going to happen. For goodness sake.

None is singular. "None is..."

But thanks.

You typed "none of THESE THINGS" so you would use "are"  instead of "is" 

The sentence would read "None of this is going to happen" if you wanted to use "is".

"Of these things" is a prepositional phrase. It does not change the subject of the verb.

Here's another example of a prepositional phrase used in a sentence about a woman who has a lot of hobbies that may help you.

A woman of many hobbies is a well-rounded person.

That's because we're talking about a single "woman" not a list of multiple women.

I don't know, my Hubby and BIL just agreed on something. I'm all but positive that's a sign of the apocalypse.

And none refers to a single event of those that I listed.

You've clearly missed the point of the example.
