I think it is wise to begin this discussion with God’s Word using “The Message Bible” (MSG)
|The Message (MSG)
20 1-5 God spoke to Moses: “Tell the Israelites, Each and every Israelite and foreigner in Israel who gives his child to the god Molech must be put to death. The community must kill him by stoning. I will resolutely reject that man and cut him off from his people. By giving his child to the god Molech he has polluted my Sanctuary and desecrated my holy name. If the people of the land look the other way as if nothing had happened when that man gives his child to the god Molech and fail to kill him, I will resolutely reject that man and his family, and him and all who join him in prostituting themselves in the rituals of the god Molech I will cut off from their people.
6 “I will resolutely reject persons who dabble in the occult or traffic with mediums, prostituting themselves in their practices. I will cut them off from their people.
7-8 “Set yourselves apart for a holy life. Live a holy life, because I am God, your God. Do what I tell you; live the way I tell you. I am the Godwho makes you holy.
9 “Any and every person who curses his father or mother must be put to death. By cursing his father or mother he is responsible for his own death.
10 “If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife—the wife, say, of his neighbor—both the man and the woman, the adulterer and adulteress, must be put to death.
11 “If a man has sex with his father’s wife, he has violated his father. Both the man and woman must be put to death; they are responsible for their own deaths.
12 “If a man has sex with his daughter-in-law, both of them must be put to death. What they have done is perverse. And they are responsible for their own deaths.
13 “If a man has sex with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is abhorrent. They must be put to death; they are responsible for their own deaths.
14 “If a man marries both a woman and her mother, that’s wicked. All three of them must be burned at the stake, purging the wickedness from the community.
15 “If a man has sex with an animal, he must be put to death and you must kill the animal.
16 “If a woman has sex with an animal, you must kill both the woman and the animal. They must be put to death. And they are responsible for their deaths.
17 “If a man marries his sister, the daughter of either his father or mother, and they have sex, that’s a disgrace. They must be publicly cut off from their people. He has violated his sister and will be held responsible.
18 “If a man sleeps with a woman during her period and has sex with her, he has uncovered her ‘fountain’ and she has revealed her ‘fountain’—both of them must be cut off from their people.
19 “Don’t have sex with your aunt on either your mother’s or father’s side. That violates a close relative. Both of you are held responsible.
20 “If a man has sex with his aunt, he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible and die childless.
21 “If a man marries his brother’s wife, it’s a defilement. He has shamed his brother. They will be childless.
22-23 “Do what I tell you, all my decrees and laws; live by them so that the land where I’m bringing you won’t vomit you out. You simply must not live like the nations I’m driving out before you. They did all these things and I hated every minute of it.
24-26 “I’ve told you, remember, that you will possess their land that I’m giving to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am God, your God, who has distinguished you from the nations. So live like it: Distinguish between ritually clean and unclean animals and birds. Don’t pollute yourselves with any animal or bird or crawling thing which I have marked out as unclean for you. Live holy lives before me because I, God, am holy. I have distinguished you from the nations to be my very own.
27 “A man or woman who is a medium or sorcerer among you must be put to death. You must kill them by stoning. They’re responsible for their own deaths.”
The Message (MSG)
I am taking notes from several articles on this subject but I don’t want this to be a long article. I’ll give reference URL’s for you to see more if you so choose to do. One is apparently by a Gay sympathizer who attempts to argue that we have misunderstandings about word definitions and that the word “Sodom” is a modern word and that “Sodomy” wasn’t mentioned.
This is a sort of willful blindness. There are none so blind as those whose will it is not to see.
There are several other references one can find saying we should marry and make love to ONE partner of the opposite physical gender. To my mind after reading what we did above, this is an air tight case.
I do not accept modern balderdash about assigned genders. There are three possibilities, (1) He is a boy, (2) She is a girl and (3) about 2 in 1000 births, this child has a very mixed up reproductive system and is not entirely male or female owing to a genetic abnormality. See this if you’re interested:
I do not recognize any nonsense about “assigned gender” or “changed” gender, or “multiple gender” or “other gender.” Those kinds of ball games are not played in my back yard. Beautiful, healthy young people trying to change their gender are only asking for a LOT of trouble. Their problem is with their thinking, not with their body.
Let’s look at 1 Corinthians 6 (NIV)
8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. 9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
12 “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”[b]17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[c]
It would be good for you to read 1 Corinthians Chapters 6 and 7 to get Paul’s complete dissertation about marriage. In today’s permissive society, everyone who claims to be a believer should read this. The issue is too easy to ignore and our sins lead to national punishment, and even more so for people whose countries came out of the 12 Tribes.
You should also be reminded that in that culture in those days a house guest was to be protected even more than the rest of the family.

We just saw Leviticus 20. Now let’s see another reference
Leviticus 18:6-29 has a very simple structure and message. Its intent is to define the boundaries of godly human sexual relationships. There are three of them, which I call the inner, middle, and outer boundaries of godly sexuality. Verses 6 through 18 define the “inner boundary,” prohibiting sexual relationships with close relatives. Verses 19 and 20 define the “middle boundary,” which limits sexual relations within marriage and prohibits them outside marriage. Verses 21 through 23 define the “outer boundary” of unnatural sexual relations. Verses 24 through 29 tell us about God’s judgment upon a nation that crosses these boundaries. They clearly tell us that God’s judgment for sexual sin applies to all nations, not just the covenant nation of Israel.
Now, before we continue I’m going to drop a picture in here. I want you to completely UNDERSTAND that “Israel” refers also to 12-Tribes, the people who “became” there countries. Therefore, God’s judgment for sex applies to ALL nations, and every nation that came out of the ancient family of Jacob who was later named Israel.
I refer you to two videos that make one half hour lesson.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIXS4zl2GzI In this second half you’ll see this chart. Most readers have never seen this. They think the Lost Tribes of Israel are still lost. How could they be lost if Jesus the Christ sent his deciples to find and teach them the true gospel? Where did they go after the diaspora of Babylon? Here is where they went and the countries that became these people.
I just LOVE it when hidden anti-Semites suddenly jump out of hiding and tell me, “I ain’t no JEW!!!” Well, I’m sorry Mr. Smith, but if your people are from England, you might be. Lots of people might be from many countries as you see in this chart from that 2nd video, and you see many were “scattered.” Scattered everywhere, even to China, Tibet, Korea, you name the place, some of the lost tribes may be there and YOU might be one of them.
As the story is told, ALL the men in the city came to Lot’s door and demanded he give these two “men” who were angels to them so they could “abuse” them. Lot offered his daughters. Why? A woman in a church I attended cried over this and said she had been trying to understand this for years.
I have said several times, ‘You’ll never understand your religion (Christianity) until you understand the culture from which it came.”
Why #1 Lot was protecting the Angels because they were his guests and by tradition when you take in a guest you protect them above all others.
Why #2 Those evil men didn’t want girls. They wanted those two men for several possible reasons including that they didn’t appreciate strangers in their city and were going to be sure everyone knew it!
Why #3 Whoever gets “taken” this way becomes subservient to the man or men who took (her). If the angels had been “abused” by these guys they were involved in sin, connected to them forever, disgraced, might possibly be seen before God as abominable/ detestable, and been made subservient. Foolish humans must come to understand once and forever, God and His Family are superior and humans will bow or die. It’s really that simple and clearly cut. Picking a fight with God is not a wise decision.
God wanted that city and surrounding ones vanquished as an end to their sinful behavior and a sign in history to the world, he won’t tolerate this. If you see the references I gave. you’ll run into more discussion about God’s warnings to never have unnatural intercourse with same gender or animals or close relatives.
I don’t want to belabor this issue. God is clear. He wants us to marry and stay together before we have sexual connections. The US and Europe are wildly promiscuous these days and have been more and more so since around year 1960. These nations are headed for punishments just as God promised.
