A Problem in Modern Ethics

Publisher Description

Opening the Bible, we find severe penalties attached to sexual inversion by the Mosaic law, in the interests of population and in harmony with the Jewish theory of abominations. The lesson is driven home by the legend of two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, overwhelmed with fire because of their addiction to abnormal sexual indulgences. Here the vindices flammæ of the Roman code appear for the first time—the stake and the flames, which mediæval legislation appointed for offenders of this sort.
