When I went into the bedroom last night, Garry was watching “Sodom and Gomorrah.” Specifically, he was asleep and the TV was on. Given what he had been watching, I can understand. I’m not big on old movies that purport to explain biblical stuff. I make an exception for “The Ten Commandments” because it is so hokey it takes on a life of it’s own. Also, I’ve seen it so many time I can run dialogue with it. And I still think the whole “crossing the Red Sea” thing is pretty cool, especially without CGI.
I have never been able to sit through any other bible-based movie, especially tales of the Messiah because I don’t believe there has been a messiah, nor do I believe one is about to show up. Moreover, I figure if Christ is everyone’s central religious character, why doesn’t anyone practice anything he would relate to? I personally doubt he believed greed is great and we should do anything and everything to grab as much money and goodies as we can before our mortal coil snaps.
What were they doing in Gomorrah?
My current theory is they were stupid and had no moral center. They were mean to each other and probably bigoted and hateful. They didn’t give a rat’s ass about the poor and deprived. If everyone starved, they wouldn’t care as long as they were well-fed.
Wait a minute. I think I’m describing 2021. Ah, Now it all makes sense.
This IS Gomorrah.
