What was the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah all about?

If you listen to conservative Christians — and I’m sorry if you do — it’s a lesson all about why homosexuality is evil.

Pride, the Bible says, idleness and abundance of bread, neither were they thankful. That was the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah. He didn’t talk about homosexuality.

Pride is the problem!

You know what this means, don’t you?
