    Then cannibalism must be natural, as well.

    Cannibalism is very rare, a product of the environment and results in significant diseases in most species.

    In some species, yes. So is rape. These are some of the reasons that make the whole "unnatural" argument irrelevant in my opinion, when it comes to gay rights.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    MistressNomad, your vote indicates you would punish/persecute Christians.

    Yes, the angels that were in the town to determine if there was 5 people (besides Lot and his family) in the town who deserved to be saved, because that was deal that Saul(?) made with God to try to save the town from destruction. God had said before the angels went to the town that He planned to destroy it because they turned away from Him.

    And the men of the town came to rape the angels, but considering it was a belief in some earlier cultures/religions that having sexual relations with powerful beings (i.e. angels) would bestow at least some of that beings powers unto the person, it is very likely that they were hungry for the power that the saw in the angels, rather than there just for the sex. And, remember, God was already planning on destroying the city prior to the angels arrival anyway. I'm also certain that God would have been pissed if the men were trying to rape female angels as well (although this part confuses me anyway since I always believed that angels were sexless).

    Maybe angels need to make an earth run again. Seems like story of Sodom and Gomorrah in comparison to today's social behaviors make that story like a Disney book.
