So in Genesis 19, the two angels go to Lot's house, and an angry mob wants to have sex with the two angels. So Lot goes out side and offers his two virgin daughters to the mob to appease them. He says not to harm the men (angels) because they are under his protection. His daughters are not? wtf?
How is this okay? God wants to kill the whole city for punishment of this mob wanting gay sex, (and other unspecified "wickeness") but offering up your own daughters to be raped by them is acceptable?
Check this out, i read it this morning. I think you'll dig it. The bible is just messed up.... It starts off with homosexuality & how wrong it is, but then goes on to other things the bible says is OK, like slavery & selling your daughters.

The Bible shows that God, who reads hearts, did not judge Lot adversely. The mob were homosexual males and wouldn't have been interested in Lot's daughters anyway. In offering his daughters to the mob, Lot would have been confident that, if it was Jehovah's will, God would protect his daughters (as God had did with Sarah - Genesis12:17-19) And Jehovah DID direct matters so that Lot and his daughters were kept safe, not only from the homosexual mob, but also from the destruction that came on the cities. Gen. 19:15-29. The angels didn't say the offer had spoiled Lot's righteousness. Instead, the angels aided Lot and his family to escape
