Lot's Lot

September 26th, 2007

In the May/June issue (“The Haggadah and Gays,” Mailroom), Lawrence Jurrist ’70 writes: “Very few Jewish scholars ... have interpreted the sin of S’dom as primarily one of homosexual behavior.”  I would like to point him to Genesis 19:4-5: “... all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.’”
