Okay, so the Hollywood guys decide to alter Biblical stories and it is okie dokie with the public. So I thought I would tell the untold between-the-lines script of Sodom. Instead of all the fighting we saw in 'The Bible' by History Channel, here’s how I envision the event unfolding.
“And the Lord appeared to him [Abraham] by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the door of his tent in the heat of the day. He lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold three men were standing in front of him.” Gen. 18:1,2. “Then the men set out from there, and they looked down toward Sodom…The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed himself with his face to the earth…They said, ‘No, we will spend the night in the town square.’ But he [Lot] pressed them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house. But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man surrounded the house. And they called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may have sex with them. Lot went out to the men at the entrance, shut the door after him and said, ‘I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.’” Gen. 18:16, 19:1,3-7
But the men of Sodom would not take no for an answer, ‘It is our mandate to educate the children in the practice of gay love, so that they may be gay and proud and not discriminated against. So Lot said unto them, ‘But we hold by religious faith that our God has ordained marriage as one man and one woman, not two men, not two women, not a man, two women and a dog, or any other such thing. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man put asunder.’ Then the men of Sodom lifted up their voice and declared, ‘We too recognize marriage, but only love and commitment defines it. And our commitment is just as good as any.’ ‘Nay,‘ said Lot. ‘For it is self-evident that both God and Nature teach us that it takes a man and woman to reproduce. And even though love is desirable, the species and family can occur even in arranged marriages.’ The men of Sodom had a rejoinder, ‘We recognize arranged marriages too and that is what we are here to do—arrange a temporary marriage—as our Muslim brothers call it—a gay marriage with these strangers.’ ‘But sputtered Lot, ‘You can’t argue that only love and a tryst define marriage! For to do so neglects thousands of years of tradition, Nature, and God. Not only would that be an invalid marriage, your wrongheadedness would nullify the ability of men to form their own governments. For the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them they may then assume among the powers of the earth, and to derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. Or at least I hope someone has the courage to say it that way some day.’
“And they said, ‘This fellow came to sojourn and he has become the judge! Now we will deal worse with you than with them.’ Then they pressed hard against the man Lot and drew near to break the door down…And they [the angels] struck with blindness the men who were at the entrance of the house, both small and great, so that they wore themselves out groping for the door.” Gen. 19:9-11. And the rest is history, as they say.
