The bible never links the story of Sodom with homosexuality. [quote]“The Bible condemns many things in the story of Sodom (lack of hospitality, humiliation of fellow human beings, brutality and violence toward others, pride, decadence, serious breech of human ethical obligations), but homosexuality is not one of them.” "Sodomy" was translated into "homosexuality", although in Greece, both words have completely different meaning. "Sodomy" in Greek is "unethical sex" or "sex without love". It has no link whatsoever to homosexuality, yet, the translators wrote homosexuality instead of sodomy. Now, common population thinks that the Bible is against homosexuals, while in the Greek and Hebrew versions, the Bible was against "sex without love". And that helped alot at making people hate Christianity. The Sodomites were not “gay”. They were rapists. This is why Lot could offer his daughters in replacement, why the Judges version of the tale actually has a female substitute, and why those few Biblical references to Sodom as being sexually-related speak in general terms rather than specific ones.
