SODOM AND SYDNEY

Sydney is well known for its GAY & LESBIAN MARDI GRAS. It is an annual parade, dance party and festival, the largest such event in the world and attracts many international and domestic tourists. For many years Fred Nile, a Christian minister has railed against their wickedness, but of course is accused of being homophobic.

Sodom and Sydney have much in common. When a mob of men from their "gay mardi gras" demand to sexual abuse Lots guests (two angels in human form) in Genesis 19:7-8, Lot goes out to them and says "Please, my brothers, don't do such a wicked thing. Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you can DO WITH THEM AS YOU WISH. BUT PLEASE, LEAVE THESE MEN ALONE, FOR THEY ARE MY GUESTS AND ARE UNDER MY PROTECTION."

I am disgusted and revolted by these men but equally by what Lot says as he offers up his daughters. What! Does he think that his daughters will be safe in the hands of this mob because they're homosexuals? My mother used to say "TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT!"
