by Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog – The Death Penalty as Our Only Hope
Editor’s note: I know every single time I post something by Wilson I always say it is the most word-salady piece of sick nonsense ever. Every single time it’s like he says ‘Hold my beer’ and he comes up with something worse. This is part of his fake counseling a gay man series and it breaks new ground, but not in a good way.
Skipping his thoughts on Sodom and Gomorrah, removing quoted scriptures and diving right in. Besides, I always preferred Brad Neely’s version of what happened to Lot. NSFW, some cursing and cartoon nudity and depictions of sex.
In short, this public attempt to rape the angels occurred in a much broader context, a context of luxurious living, contempt for the poor, idleness, pride, abominable practices, fornication, and going after strange flesh. In other words, the problem with Sodom was just what everybody thought it was—before some scholars got hold of it.
A homosexual prostitute is called “a dog” in Deuteronomy.
Some might say that the problem here was the commodification of sex, not the homosexual act in itself. But this is not the kind of problem that can be solved by giving it away. Scripture teaches that free love is worse than merchandised love.
The objection to the law in Leviticus is that we are inconsistent to keep the prohibition and not to keep the penalty. Why opposition to homosexual intercourse on the part of modern Christians, but no one is urging the death penalty for it? This objection misunderstands the nature of the Old Testament case law system. The death penalty in this instance was not a minimum penalty, but rather one of the options, depending on the circumstances. Centuries later, three righteous kings (Asa, Jehoshaphat and Josiah) banned the sodomites who had set up operations near the Temple, and they are praised in the text, even though they executed no one.
