However - again, as so often in the Bible, including the story of Lot - it isn't really about homosexual couples. It's about intimidation of strangers through gang rape...a common occurence during the stories' time. It was used to prove superiority over others, much as it's used in the penal system today.
Thanks for that. For the life of me I can't remember the prostitutes name. If you recall, she was spared when the city was attacked by hanging some sort of banner out of her window.
By the way, Joshua and Judges are the books to read if you really want some biblical bloody violence. I'm trying to find my bible study notes. I recall that in Judges, one bloke named Abimelech had his 70 brothers killed so he could be the next judge of Israel. I was a nasty time to be alive indeed.
