I thought that "sodomy" meant _homosexual *rape*_, and not just sex between members of the same sex. Isn't the word based on the Biblical story of Lot and the Angels in Sdom, where Lot's evil neighbors told him to send out his guests, because they wanted to rape them? -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
