Lot’s Sons-in-Law – Homosexuals?
Homosexuals? There is no record of Lot having sons, as suggested by the angel. If so, they chose to remain in Sodom, indicating that they were homosexuals as were all the other men in the city. That his sons-in-law chose to remain is clear (Gen. 19:14). It seems that they had not yet married his two daughters but were only engaged, because Gen. 19:8 says the daughters had not “known (had sexual relations with) man.” If the sons-in-law had entered into the final marriage contract, then they perhaps lived with Lot’s daughters in name only. This is done among homosexuals, as Rom. 1:27 says, “the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men …” That Lot had no sons and only two daughters is plainly indicated in Gen. 19:30-31 where one is called “the firstborn” and the other “the younger” (cf. Gen. 29:26). The terms “his two daughters” (Gen. 19:30) and “both the daughters of Lot” (Gen. 19:36) also emphasize this.
