I know it is considered unkind and not polite to ridicule something others believe with passion. But, sometimes it is the only appropriate response. If there was a Sodom and Gomorrah event, ridicule is what one has to make of the notion it was about condemning homosexuality.
The myth comes from a part of the story where a crowd of men wants to rape some male angels. Have you ever heard of an entire city of men who were homosexual? I haven’t.
Whoever wrote the Sodom and Gomorrah story had not either. Nowhere in the Bible does it say the towns’ men were homosexuals.
Before the story had even taken place, Sodom and Gomorrah were labeled as “evil” cities. The alledged evilness was not about homosexuality.
The evilness was (Gen. 16: 49-50) having lots of food and not sharing, too much pride and being inhospitable to visitors. When the character, Jesus, came along he said about the same thing. He didn’t mention homosexuality.
The “abomination” passage is another red herring. When the Israelites came into Cannaan, Cannaan had established religious practices. Israelites had to pass laws to prevent assimilation into Cannaan’s culture. One practice was male priests dressed as women apparently having ritualized sex in the temple with women. Maybe it was a fertility rite. There needed to be a law against such “abomination” or maybe it would catch on with Israelites.
The manual of Christianity is supposed to be the Gospels. Homosexuality is not mentioned there.
It wasn’t a sin.
