Lot's (Lut in Arabic) life is explained in Genesis, chapters 11-14, and 19. He lived in Sodom, a city of open homosexuality (see Genesis 19:4-9). What was the sin of HYPERLINK "https://www.str.org/articles/what-was-the-sin-of-sodom-and-gomorrah"Sodom and Gomorrah?Greg Koukl examined the options in depth and concluded:
We know the men of Sodom and Gomorrah were homosexual, 'both young and old, all the people from every quarter' (19:4), to the point of disregarding available women (19:5-8). After they were struck sightless they still persisted (19:11). These men were totally given over to an overwhelming passion that did not abate even when they were supernaturally blinded by angels.
Homosexuality fits the biblical details. It was the sin that epitomized the gross wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah-the 'grave', 'ungodly', 'lawless', 'sensual conduct of unprincipled men' that tormented Lot as he 'saw and heard' it 'day after day', the 'corrupt desire' of those that went after 'strange flesh' (Koukl 2016).
Islam's punishment for homosexuality is an extreme treatment compared with what Margaret Court advocated.
Homosexuality may be punishable by imprisonment or death in the UAE. Why didn't Dr Whitaker support the cancellation of the sponsorship of Etihad Stadium for the sake of the LGBTIQ+ community when Islam is so opposed to homosexuality?
It seems inconsistent to me that she wanted to downgrade Dr Court's persecution and abuse for her statements on homosexuality but avoid dealing with a Muslim country's airline's sponsorship of Etihad Stadium in Australia.
There's a vast gap between Dr Margaret Court's holy Bible and Dr Robyn Whitaker's holey Bible on the authority of scripture that contains teaching on homosexuality, gay couples, marriage equality, polygamy, heterosexuality, bestiality and sexual purity.
It is a serious situation for Whitaker to castigate Court's views on literal interpretation of the Bible when heterosexual and not homosexual relationships are promoted by Jesus himself.
Whitaker has bought into the contemporary, pro-homosexual, politically correct agenda that receives vast mass media coverage. Margaret Court and the Australian Christian Lobby have promoted the biblical mandate of heterosexual marriage, which was supported by Moses and Jesus, and has been the norm since the beginning of time.
I urge Robyn Whitaker to make an apology to Margaret Court and the Australian Christian Lobby for promoting her own views over those endorsed by Scripture – all in Whitaker's name of being a representative of Christianity.
