    on this very subject.  That source would apply to all Jews, Christians and Muslims though I suspect as good as it is the same idea is found in all the writings of people of good will.

    "Welcome the stranger for once we were strangers as well".

      because they failed their duty to welcome strangers.   Sadly, too many clerics have gotten away with claiming other motives for that total destruction.    

      A really carefull reading of the whole series of events -- from Abraham splitting with his brother, his brother becoming a resident there, Abraham coming to rescue townsfolk from them being hauled off as slaves when outsiders defeat them in battle, yet they still distrust the brother when he welcomes and defends the disguised angels, to the brother's daughters raping their father to keep dad's seed alive instead of finding spouses from the nearby town which survived  --->

      none of it really fits with sermons I've endured which blamed everything from interracial marriage to being gay instead of the actual message.

      De fund + de bunk = de EXIT--->>>>>
