    Sodom and Gomorrah encouraged and boasted of their approval for sexual deviancy as well look what that got them.

    Sodom and Gomorrah are a myth. You have got some kind of hang-up with other peoples sex,@Joe Camel. Have you ever heard the saying “Nunya”?


    What about all the heterosexual 'sinners' who are divorced and remarried??? What does the Bible say about THAT??? I'll bet fully 1/3 of your church congregations are divorced and remarried. According to the Bible they are now lining in sin. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!
