Years ago while reading the story of Lot and the judgment of Sodom, I was perplexed that strident homosexuality could have such strong currency in the biblical Middle East — which I understood to be a rough and tumble place. But now i know intimately that the desperately wicked human heart desires pleasures on its own terms, and having come uncoupled from the fixed proclivities of design and nature, the arc of its insatiability is aroused and fixated on the forbidden to the extent that it will conduct war with anything decent or lovely.
Having muddled the distinction between the sacred and the profane, how resolutely wickedness seeks to justify itself in cities which take on the character of hellish cauldrons. How quickly it all slides downhill as humanity, striving against all natural forms, rips off its hypocritical mask and bellows forth its true maniacal aim: a take no prisoners war against the sons and daughters of the Most High. A demonic imagination that prefers the outer darkness to the bending of the knee will not be moved or redeemed, and destruction, whether through calamity or the proxy of foreign arms, becomes as inexorable as the rising sun. And finally, almost as if on cue, the dark judgment takes shape as the wretched embrace their own destruction with self-righteousness dripping from blackened lips.
