genesis 19 what is the moral

....The book forbids incest then I see this ? Lot is supposed to be one of holiest people a prophet and you do this to him? A prophet not else? I am asking what is the moral of this story ?....

Those that can convince you of absurdities, can make you commit atrocities

  • Voltaire

The moral of the storybook is that it is without it. A critical thinker would see through it, and enjoy the fable like a bawdy joke.

While a dogmatist could contort like a gymnast trying to justify the obvious contradiction, the absence of ethics, the looseness of 'divine' commandments, will all be for nought.

Forgive me lord for my joke on thee, and I shall forgive thy big one on me
