If the Bible is read literally ...

November 29, 2013 

Another letter quoting the Bible, condemning gay marriage, in which the writer believes the Bible states that God punishes people and "lets them die" and God killed homosexuals at Sodom and Gomorrah got my attention. I agree. God punishes people and lets them die according to the Bible.

The writer goes on to ask, "Does anything go? Is it OK to marry your brother?"

If the writer believes the Bible, what does he think Adam and Eve's kids did to populate this world?
