The simple fact that Lot offered his daughters, would that not be a sin? Would not it have been better for him to offer himself only? But, if we consider Homer, Lot knew sex was not the issue, so it could be considered a poker bluff, and why would he offer daughters to the men if the sin was homosexuality? Did he not know what they wanted? The daughers though were living under the social contract their father had chosen, the Angels were not. The Angels, just as Odysseus disguised as a beggar, was under the protection of the house.
For the vary same reason civilian disguised terrorism is lifting the veils of Angels in search of salami bombs up Black Stone Idolater butt cracks and vaginas.
We should employ homosexuals to probe Moslem holes, if they believe an F-16 is the same as a civilian clothed suicide bomber, as one domestic Moslem said in Marc Levin's "Protocols of Zion," for a vacuous look on Levin's face (daddy has a picture of Che on the wall), in keeping with retarded "liberal" bigviews:

There is no scripture that says that. God’s presence is everywhere including where Heaven is not. God created Heaven, so to say that Heaven is where God is, is to say that Heaven is everywhere and that it was not created. And if Heaven is where God is then even the wicked are in Heaven, because the Bible says at death our spirit goes back to God.Question: "Where is heaven? What is the location of heaven?"
Answer: Heaven is most certainly a real place. The Bible very definitely speaks of heaven’s existence—and access to heaven through faith in Jesus Christ—but there are no verses that give us a Mapquest-style location. The short answer to this question is, “heaven is where God is.”
Ecclesiastes 12:1-7 (ESV)
1 Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, “I have no pleasure in them”;
2 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars are darkened and the clouds return after the rain,
3 in the day when the keepers of the house tremble, and the strong men are bent, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those who look through the windows are dimmed,
4 and the doors on the street are shut—when the sound of the grinding is low, and one rises up at the sound of a bird, and all the daughters of song are brought low—
5 they are afraid also of what is high, and terrors are in the way; the almond tree blossoms, the grasshopper drags itself along, and desire fails, because man is going to his eternal home, and the mourners go about the streets—
6 before the silver cord is snapped, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is shattered at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern,
7 and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
2 Corinthians 12:1-4 is addressing two separate accounts.......notice that the words visions is mentioned and not vision. One vision was where he was caught up into the third Heaven and the other vision was when he was caught up into paradise. A paradise is like a park or a garden and Heaven is not. There are no trees, grass, water, air or birds for example in Heaven. The paradise that he saw was what the world is going to be like during the millennium when Jesus and the saints are ruling on the Earth.The place referred to in this question is called the “third heaven” and “paradise” in 2 Corinthians 12:1-4, where the apostle Paul tells of a living man who was “caught up” to heaven and was unable to describe it. The Greek word translated “caught up” is also used in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 in describing the rapture, wherein believers will be caught up to be with the Lord. These passages have led to the conclusion that heaven is beyond the earth’s airspace and beyond the stars.
While much of what this writer said is true the highlighted part is not. Angels are spirit and spirit does not exist in time or space......they would have to have a body to exist in time and space and they do not.....they are spirit.However, since God is spirit, “heaven” cannot signify a place remote from us which He inhabits. The Greek gods were thought of as spending most of their time far away from earth in sort of a celestial equivalent of the Bahamas, but the God of the Bible is not like this. He is always near us when we call on Him (James 4:, and we are encouraged to “draw near” to Him (Hebrews 10:1, 22). Granted, the “heaven” where saints and angels dwell has to be thought of as a sort of locality, because saints and angels, as God’s creatures, exist in space and time. But when the Creator is said to be “in heaven,” the thought is that He exists on a different plane from us, rather than in a different place..
The Bible speaks more about the Earth than about Heaven......Jesus even said that the meek will inherit the Earth.That God in heaven is always near to His children on earth is something which the Bible expresses throughout. The New Testament mentions heaven with considerable frequency. Yet, even with this frequency, detailed description of its location is missing. Perhaps God has intentionally covered its location in mystery, for it is more important for us to focus on the God of heaven than the description or location of it. It is more important to know the why than the where. The New Testament focuses on the purpose of heaven more than telling us what it is like or where it is. We have seen that hell is for separation and punishment (Matthew 8:12; 22:13). Heaven, on the other hand, is for fellowship and eternal joy and, more importantly, worshipping around the throne of God.
Matthew 5:5 (ASV)
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Incest also carries with it all forms of potential dangers in the event of a child resulting from said union.
Thank you for ignoring everything else in my post about condemning others and judgment. False Christians often ignore passages they do not like while jumping on those that allow their hatred to be justified in their eyes.
You have no right to judge others as your sin is just as great, if not more so... You should pray for the salvation of all man and save your judgment.

Homosexual act also carries with it its dangers as well. I remember a program that Gary Null did some years ago, where he interviewed a man that happened to be a homosexual.....the man had to wear a diaper because he could not prevent feces from coming out his rectum. Thatís what can happen when one engages in anal sex.

He gave us a golden rule to make our decisions about future issues though:
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. "
If you don't want to be looked down upon for your sexual identity, if you don't want to have a sexual identity forced down your throat: don't do it to others.
