How about Sodom and Gomorrah’s destruction? The well-known Biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah reveals God’s feelings about homosexuality. God declared: “The cry of complaint about Sodom and Gomorrah, yes, it is loud, and their sin, yes, it is very heavy.” (Genesis 18:20) The extent of their sinful depravity at that time was apparent when two guests visited the righteous man Lot. “The men of Sodom … surrounded the house, from boy to old man, all the people in one mob. And they kept calling out to Lot and saying to him: ‘Where are the men who came in to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have intercourse with them.’” (Genesis 19:4, 5) The Bible says: “The men of Sodom were bad and were gross sinners against Jehovah.”—Genesis 13:13. The men became “violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males.” (Romans 1:27) They had “gone out after flesh for unnatural use.” (Jude 7) In countries where homosexual rights campaigns are pervasive, some may object to using the word “unnatural” to describe homosexual behavior. However, is not God the final arbiter when it comes to nature? He commanded his ancient people: “You must not lie down with a male the same as you lie down with a woman. It is a detestable thing.”— Leviticus 18:22.

Um first off, Sodom and Gomorrah is actually about being inhospitably and rape, it isn’t about being gay!! Also Laviticus says a lot of shit that you are not suppose to do, like not eating shrimp, or how all women are subserviant to men and should not preach(yet we have women preachers) how about selling your daughter, that’s a good one. Unless she isn’t a virgin to which you must then stone her to death, don’t forget that! If my ass is going to live by laviticus then so does your ass! That also means not wearing cloths of more than one tread since that is an abomination too!! Please don’t take the bible literally, it was written 2000 years ago, you are taking it out of context when you do so and giving christians a bad name! There are some documentaries you REALLY should check out, “Fish Out of Water” and “Lord, Save Us from your followers” both are great. I’m gay and christian, I’ve tried with my whole heart to be straight but it never worked, I do not like men in that way. To me it is not a sin, since God made me this way. We shouldn’t have lust for anybody, gay or straight. When you hurt and misquote the bible you are only hurting yourself!
