    Sometimes I wonder if I'm the first person in 3000 years who figured this one out. We name U.S. laws prohibiting alleged sexual sin after Sodom, and named an STD after Gommorah. But God destroyed those cities for a reason other than sexual misconduct. The real reason is unmistakeably clear, based on reliable Scripture in the Bible, but won't be found where you expect to find it. Does anyone out there know the answer, or care to even take a guess?

    I was hoping you'd leave the question completely open-ended so I could just post, "Buttsex?" and have a little giggle. But no, you had to beat me to the punch.:(

    Another answer, then. Because he was being a dick? This isn't meant as a troll. I'm sure you were looking for the sin that Sodom committed, but whatever that sin is, there had to be people there (the children, maybe) who, even if they -all- came right out of the womb and committed this sin immediately, surely didn't know any better? Who annihilates a kid (or a city's worth of kids) for a misstep of which they're not even aware? Survey says: A dick!

    Very similar situation to that Easter South Park a couple weeks ago. Cartman has this dream that he's a young Egyptian prince during the plagues, and when Kyle tells him about the death of the first born sons coming, he responds with something along the lines of, "I don't believe you! God would never do that! He's not a dick!" Not a great episode, but I thought that little exchange was pretty priceless.

    In the OT you had angels who were assigned basically to off the city.

    We're not yakking Alabama's kind of "angels among us". These dudes kicked ass.

    When Jehovah fucked up over Noah, the ark and the whole deal he promised that he would never ever do that again.

    Hence rainbows. And his promise to every beast on the earth.

    OK, another hint. The answer is found, in unmistakeable terms, in the teachings of a major Old Testament prophet we've all heard of. I post the answer in a chapter of a book I have posted on line at deliver-us-from-evil dot com. The chapter is titled "Christmas in Sodom," and makes the case that Houston (where I live) is a modern day Sodom. And the reason God destroyed the city? Its people were richly blessed and yet mistreated the poor, which happens to be exactly consistent with Christ's warnings on what to expect on Judgment Day, in Matt. 25 and elsewhere. So my question is why am I seemingly the first person in 3000 years that has deciphered, from the Cross-word puzzle that is the Bible, this truth, in light of all the condemnation and guilt modern religion assigns to alleged sexual immorality?

    The same reason he will destroy us if we don't repent soon: Sin.

    When you get that feeling, that's when you should voluntarily commit yourself.
