When the crowd of men comes to Lot's house and asks him to send out his visitors so they can have sex with them, and he offers his two virgin daughters instead is one of the most messed up parts of the Bible for me. It is extremely difficult to understand the thinking of people back then, but if you try you sometimes can understand why they did the things they did that way. You don’t have to like it, especially since we were raised with different social norms, but maybe you can understand it. Think about it also from their point of view, what do you think people back then would think of us after they found out we abort millions of babies each year, I bet they would label us as horrible barbarians and murders, although to us that is just a social norm. The Bible was written by men, some say with divine guidance, but it was men who put the ink to paper, so it is going to represent the social norms as they see them in that time, which means that they could be different than we have today, so I just suggest we do less judging and more just understanding.
