CWN Editor's Note: A new work by the Pontifical Biblical Commission argues that the sin of Sodom, recounted in the book of Genesis, was not sexual misconduct but inhospitality toward strangers. That argument—frequently advanced by gay-rights advocates—is found in What is Man? An Itinerary of Biblical Anthropology. The book is currently available only in Italian.
