Was Lot a Total Ignoramus?

    If this town of Sodom was *supposedly* all homosexuals....

    why would Lot throw his virgin daughters out to them when the crowd came to his house?

    Were these girls ugly and needed help with make-up or finding their colors?

    Why would Lot think that homosexuals would be happy having the company of his virgin daughters?

    if the residents of sodom had sex with him.....would it be "lottery"?

  • Leolaia

    Maybe because homosexuality per se has nothing to do with the original story?

    Thats not the real issue. I want someone to tell me how you can get so wasted after watching you spouse become a pillar of salt that you bang your daughters! I'm gonna need someone to break that down to me nice and slow.

    Lot's daughters were thrown to the mob to be used as hostages to insure that the strangers would not harm the town.

    But the strangers did come with the specific purpose as jihad terrorists and they did blow up the town before they left.

    "God" did not send fire and brimstone from heaven. Orders may have come 'from above' meaning the top military factions, but nothing supernatural came from the sky.

    These terrorists may have intended to act as "the invisible hand of god", but it is clearly evident this town was destroyed by actual jihadists.

    Furthermore there is really no evidence that Sodom was a town of homosexuals. The reason preachers use this as an excuse for that dogma of hate hinges on the word "know."

    The men of the town wanted to "know" who the strangers were. Well, can you blame them? This was a rather closed community; it was walled. Why would 2 men come at dark not knowing anyone there that they would visit, seemingly having no purpose, and not there to seek shelter from their travels? They were hanging around in the street, surmising the town. Lot was the gate keeper, and therefor had some responsibility for the safety of the town. That was the only reason for his hospitality.

    And as for the word "know"...it does not always have a sexual connotation. It was not meant in that sense in this story. The xtain telling of this story has been a wicked fabrication and probably deliberate in its intention of hate mongering and dogma.

    Lot would think that , because he is a fictional character.

    The story is an outrageous fabrication.

    I don't think it is a fabrication. I think many of these stories are trying to warn us. I think many stories have a message based on past history. I think they have been deliberately twisted by wolves in the pulpit.

    What man has been conditioned to believe as "the invisible hand of god" is nothing supernatural. It is a group of leaders who use silent stealth to bring mysterious death to those who will not go along with their program.

    Let me give you an example. Bird Flu.

    The word "flu" comes from the belief of supernatural in-FLU-ences.

    A flu distributed by--unknown causes--could easily be misconstrued as judgement from god.

    I bet it would be real interesting to take a look at god's elves in their workshop.
