The Sins of Sodom and Gomorrah Are Now the American Way – Jess Whitlock

The Congressional Record of January 10, 1963 contains a list of “Current Communist Goals.” The list is gleaned from the book, “The Naked Communist” written by Cleon Skousen. Mr. Skousen was with the FBI for sixteen years. Communists desire to,

…eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship…break down cultural standards of morality and promoting pornography…present homosexuality, degeneracy, promiscuity as normal, natural, and healthy…discredit the Bible…eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools…discredit the family

You might well say that as far as Communism’s goals, they are on target!

There were numerous causes leading to the fall of Rome as discussed by Edward Gibbon in his six-volume study of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. There was antagonism between the Senate and Emperor, political corruption, decline in morality, the Praetorian Guard, decline in ethics, failing economy, et al. Did you notice the decline in morals?

During the Pax Romana era there were in excess of 32,000 temple prostitutes in Rome. The immorality included adultery, sex orgies and sodomite acts. Emperor Tiberius kept groups of young boys for his own pleasure. Emperor Nero was guilty of incest and had his own slave castrated so that he could take him as wife. Rome had adopted the pederasty of the Greeks, generally aimed at boys between the ages of 12 and 18. The Emperor Nero was said by the historian Tacitus (A.D. 56-117) to have a passion for free-born boys, and was married to other men and one boy! Read the history of Suetonius and Martial and in doing so you will become quite ill. So-called “gay marriage” was alive and well in Rome at the time of her demise! This sin is not new…several American Presidents have been exposed as being guilty of practicing homosexuality! For shame! As the late brother Dub Mowery once said, “There is no such thing as a so-called ‘same sex’ marriage.”

The wickedness of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah was a stench in the nostrils of God. “And Jehovah said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous I will go down now” (Gen. 18:20-21). In Genesis 19 two angels, in the form of men are granted a night’s lodging in the house of Lot. Notice please,

the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And they called to Lot and said to him, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may known them carnally.” (Gen. 19: 4-5).

Lot actually offered his two daughters to this mob. They only wanted the men! The angels pulled Lot into the house and shut the door. “And they (angels, JW) struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.” (Gen. 19:11). Lot and his family are allowed to leave the city, even though Lot’s wife “looked back.”

Then Jehovah rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from Jehovah out of the heavens. “So, He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.” (Gen. 19:24-25). The Lord God destroyed the cities of the plain because of the heinous sin of sodomy. God decreed that, “Thou shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination” (Lev. 18:22), and Paul later wrote in The New Testament:

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due (Rom. 1:26-27).
