In light of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, we have seen many displays of patriotism and American pride. Many people have called on Americans to hold our heads up and be proud – to continue doing what we normally would. On the other hand, we have some preachers telling us that the attacks were just a preview of things to come – if Americans do not repent. We also have heard many people say that God owes an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah if He does not destroy America soon due to the increased acceptance of homosexuality. But why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and is America guilty of the same?
