can't do that.but here,have my daughter and concubine and gang rape them til dawn."
lol. You have to understand the situation there. The whole men of Sodom, both young and old wanted to gang rape the guests. In this situation, mob
rape. These are a crowd bent on lawless violence. You can see the whole psychological condition of the citizenry of Sodom. They were utterly sex
crazed violent rapists.
They kept violently pressuring and pestering Lot. He was under a lot of pressure as he was trying to protect his guests and out of desperation and at
the spur of the moment he offered his daughters. It's really a wrong decision, but I don't think it was ever his intention at all. We all make
He was just under a lot of stress and pressure being surrounded by hundreds if not thousands of sex maniacs. It's more like facing a whole crowd in a
football match cheering for Inter Millan trying to make a score, lol. Imagine how pressurizing that is and imagine if that ever happened, the
condition of the guest if they were human, these rapists will take turns on them and that will probably kill them. However, that actually did not
happen. The angels blinded the crowd. That's 1-0.
4 Before they had gone to bed,all
the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot,
"Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters
who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they
have come under the protection of my roof." 9 "Get out of our way," they replied. And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and now he
wants to play the judge! We'll treat you worse than them." They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door. 10 But the
men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and
old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.
I've often wondered about the incest thing, it always gets overlooked doesn't it. You can't fall in love with someone of the same sex, but you can
have sex with your own children, and sisters can have sex with brothers!??!
In the past, yes. Otherwise how could Adam and Eve's children could ever populate the whole world, if marriage between bro and sis were forbidden?
However, when men began to expand in population, marriages between bro and sis and close cousins were no more supported because they found out later
that a high occurrence of abnormal babies were being born between these unions. It thus became a social taboo and a crime. It was more healthier and
culturally acceptable onwards to marry persons further down the branch laterally. Otherwise, if this was not prevented, mankind will become extinct.
Logically, all of us in this world are brothers and sisters having only one parent that is Adam and Eve. We actually don't call it as incest, do we?
The incest law was made in order to protect mankind. It's more on practical survival rather than taboo anymore.
