SISTER PAULA'S SERMON ON THE SINS OF SODOM

As you probably know, I'm a great fan of Sister Paula whose messages never fail to inspire. This message of hers entitled, "The Sins of Sodom," seemingly largely referenced from the eminently scholarly book entitled, Gay Christian 101 by Rick Brentlinger, is excellent, as it shows the lies propounded by many homophobic clergy and professing Christians that are falsely, ignorantly and/or mendaciously used by them to seek to justify their prejudices against LGBT people.

Homophobic professing Christians create God in their own dysfunctional image, and we must never forget this truth!

Moreover, I strongly urge you to own Rick Brentlinger's book that is both scholarly, comprehensive, and eminently readable, as it will finally lay to rest any doubts you may have regarding fallacious Christian objections to homosexuality and to LGBT people!

PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK TO BE BOTH BLESSED AND EDUCATED BY SISTER PAULA REGARDING THE FACT THAT THE SINS OF SODOM, THAT ARE OFTEN USED BY PROFESSING HOMOPHOBIC CHRISTIANS, HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HOMOSEXUALITY OR LGBT PEOPLE.

The Sodom story is probably the weapon Bible bigots use most often against Gay people, and it's arguably the easiest one to deflect. How absurd is the idea of a town with nothing but Gay men in it? And rapacious Gay men to boot? What happened in Sodom and Gomorrah is the equivalent of what happens in modern prisons, and in war zones like the Congo. Then as now, men perceived as vulnerable and weak are targeted for sexual violence. It's all about subjugation, and sexual orientation has nothing to do with it. The gender of the rape victim wasn't important, either. Anyone who misunderstands the men of Sodom's intent should read the 19th chapter of Judges for clarification.

Thanks Don Charles! Also, I wonder what the fundamentalists, the self-styled "Bible-believing Christians," would say about the dismemberment of a sexually abused woman by her "owner?" Or don't I want to know? Best wishes, Jerry.

To Val: I didn't post your comment because I will not allow this blog to be used for hate-mongering in the name of the Bible, or of anything else for that matter.

Moreover, you pick and choose verses that have absolutely no bearing on this topic, or on equal civil and sacramental rights for LGBT people.

I certainly don't mind people disagreeing with me, and will post all such civil and rational comments. However, I will not allow the Bible to be ignorantly and egregiously misused to hurt others; allow poor biblical exegesis to be taken seriously to the point where all too many LGBT people needlessly suffer, and are even assaulted and murdered.

To Stone: I won't print your comment based merely on your own prejudices. If you read some of the articles in my Links section or, better yet, read the book "Gay Christian 101" by Rick Brentlinger, you'll see that the Bible in no way condemns LGBT people. However, from the nature of your comment, my guess is that you have no interest in scholarly literature on this subject, but merely want to nurture your prejudices.
