Response

Thanks for the opportunity to comment on this reaction to my letter to the President. I did not intimate that homosexual vice was the only sin of Sodom which called for divine judgment, and Ezekiel 16:49,50 certainly doesn’t say that its only sin was robbing the poor—it mentions in particular its “detestable things.” Go back to […]
