I’m reminded of the story of Scott Howard, who was repeatedly raped by members of a prison gang called 211 Crew while serving time in the Colorado Department of Corrections.
The 211 Crew was known for a vocal hatred of homosexuals.
What relationship does this kind of gang-rape have to loving, committed relationships between two people of the same sex? I doubt any of the men of Sodom would have considered themselves homosexual by our definitions today.
Genesis 18 tells us the people of Sodom regularly practiced evil.
Yet they raped men in prison suspected of being gay.
Rape was a means of demonstrating power over others.
Once again, this practice was a far cry from two people of the same gender sharing their lives together.
Given that this is the only occurrence of a “man lying with a man” is it at least possible that Leviticus and were condemning homosexual rape rather than anything approximating two people sharing their lives in a loving relationship?
But here’s the question I would ask related to this story: is this story really about loving, committed homosexual relationships?
Had the town’s men gang-raped Lot’s daughters, would this story be about loving, committed heterosexual relationships? Did the men of Sodom consider themselves homosexual? Or was their attack upon these strangers a way of demonstrating power over them, humiliating them, while violently gratifying their own sexual desires?
You shall not bring the fee of a prostitute or the wages of a male prostitute into the house of the Lord your God in payment for any vow, for both of these are abhorrent to the Lord your God.” We know little about this practice, but it appears to either have been some kind of fertility ritual or sex for pay with the payment going to support the temple of the pagan deity for which the prostitute worked.
If this was the model for sex between men, then Moses’s commands in Leviticus 18 and 20 may have been prohibiting Israelite men from visiting pagan male temple prostitutes and thus practicing idolatry.
Yet we don’t consider eating these things an abomination today, nor a violation of God’s will.
