Lunch Forward: Fire and Brimstone, Scary Sodom!
Lunch Forward: Fire and Brimstone, Scary Sodom! Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
We're discussing a text that's full of fire and brimstone: the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Be prepared to be scared by this tale, in which a father offers his daughters to a vicious mob, a band of men demand to "know" a bunch of visitors to the city, and everything burns to the ground.
This tale, in which women are abandoned to violence and possibly rape, has been used to terrorize the queer community. What does this story say? What does it mean to us today? Come and understand it for yourself.
