In my last post I gave some brief information on the traditional Christian attitude towards sodomy. To expand on that topic, I recommend to my readers the excellent sermon "Sodomites On Trial" by Matthew Trewhella (download the sermon here). The sermon was originally preached in 2003 shortly after the United States Supreme Court declared anti-sodomy laws to be "unconstitutional". Trewhella gives a detailed historical account of how sodomy was treated in the early American colonies, and even more importantly he does an excellent job communicating the total revulsion with which homosexuality was viewed. Christians in past ages considered sodomy to be as bad as murder and rape. Until we bring back that attitude, our claims of representing "traditional" or "Biblical" Christianity are insincere.
