It didn’t go so well, according to the Bible, for a couple of cities that allowed, for sure encouraged and probably even celebrated homosexuality. Remember those references to Sodom and Gomorrah? The biblical discussion of the “detestable” sexual practices, their “sin so grievous?” And the burning sulfur that rained from the heavens on the unrepentant residents? Yeah, that’s where the modern word “sodomy” comes from, too. The online non-denominational Christian ministry GotQuestions explains:

“Those who attempt to explain away the biblical condemnations of homosexuality claim that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was inhospitality. The men of Sodom and Gomorrah were certainly being inhospitable. There is probably nothing more inhospitable than homosexual gang rape. But to say God completely destroyed two cities and all their inhabitants for being inhospitable clearly misses the point. While Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty of many other horrendous sins, homosexuality was the reason God poured fiery sulfur on the cities, completely destroying them and all of their inhabitants. To this day, the area where Sodom and Gomorrah were located remains a desolate wasteland.” FULL REPORT
