In Genesis, Chapter 19, we have a rather unsavory story of how Sodom was destroyed, but Lot was saved. In case you might wonder who Lot is, why, he is the nephew of Abraham, that great Patriarch of all Patriarchs of the Jewish race, the one with whom God made a special covenant that he would bless his seed and multiply it like the sands upon the beach. He made a very special sweetheart arrangement with Abraham, so the Jews claim at least, and we will have more about that in another story. Suffice it here to say that Lot was the nephew of Abraham who left Egypt with Abraham and his wife and went south.
Apparently Lot went to live in the city of Sodom, which was a very wicked city, so Chapter 19 says.
Evidently God had a very special interest in this Jew Lot also, and he sent two angels to Sodom one evening as Lot sat at the gate of that city. Apparently they were disguised as two men.
Lot invited them to stay in his house overnight. He baked unleavened bread and had a feast with them. Evidently, (and I am following Chapter 19) so this lurid story goes, that when these two strange men came into Lot’s house, it aroused the interest of all those wicked homosexuals that lived in that city to the extent that “The men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; and they called unto Lot, and said unto him, where are the men which came into thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.”
It does seem rather strange that Lot, who was the nephew of this great “chosen” one of God, and who himself had attracted the special interest and blessing of God, should be living in a city that is so overrun with homosexuals that as soon as two strange men come to visit him, the whole city should flock around his house to get at them. Anyway, it seems that Lot kept them out and instead offered them his two daughters to “let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do, ye to them as is good in your eyes.”
Can you think of a more depraved and idiotic situation? Can you think of a more irresponsible and abominable father, one who would throw his daughters to a savage gang of deviates, offering them willingly to such a mob?
In any case, there is a lot of hocus-pocus. The mob is smitten with blindness and other things that frustrated their lecherous intentions and the angels are saved from the ravages of the mob of homosexuals.
The “angels” then advise him that the Lord is going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and that he had better get out of this wicked place and take his wife, daughters and in-laws with him, with the rest of them evidently not being convinced and staying in the city. As this small group is on their way out, the Lord rains fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah.
They are told not to look around as they are leaving. Lot’s wife makes the fatal mistake of doing just that and she is turned into a pillar of salt. Rather a weird and unusual punishment to receive for looking around at a rather catastrophic event behind her, something almost anybody would compulsively do.
However, this bizarre story goes on. Lot and his two daughters went on to dwell up in the mountains, to live in a cave. Here this queer story further continues to expose the depraved and grotesque meanderings of the Jewish mind, as usual, running to pornography.
It seems that his two daughters, thinking that there were no further men available to them on the face of the earth, decided they would play a little trick on their father, so that they would not die without preserving his seed. So it seems the first-born said to the younger one, let’s get our father drunk and then lie with him. This act of incest was evidently completely successful and she jubilantly told her younger sister to do the same thing with her father the next night.
This she did, and both of them conceived. Evidently Lot, however, was blameless in this whole thing, according to the story (if you can believe it) because he was evidently too drunk to know what he was doing with his two daughters. A very improbable story, but this is the way the Jewish “Holy Bible” tells it. Now remember, I did not make this up, it’s all there in Chapter 19 of Genesis.
As the Jews like to tell it, each one of these bastards became the father of a race of people. The first born, having a son by the name of Moab was the father of the Moabites, and the second daughter also had a son, and he was the father of the children of Ammon unto this day. At least, that’s what it says in Genesis 19.
Here we have another glaring example of what kind of people were the Lord’s “chosen.” The Lord evidently did look with great special favor upon Lot as being the finest of the city of Sodom, and being the nephew of that great Patriarch Abraham, the Lord must have approved his getting drunk and committing incest with his two surviving daughters. Or else why did he pick these kinds to be his “chosen?”
How anybody can hold up this kind of a book as being “Holy”; as being the type of trash that we should hold up to our children; as being the “Good Book”; as something we should all study and obtain “wisdom” from, is completely beyond me.
