Ooh, That's Harsh

Angry Bear says that the deal is all explained in Genesis 19.

Well, the first half. Without the Divine Intervention. (If you want proof of a Jealous G-d, someone who blinds the enemy so that you can escape--not having done your job--should be almost as high on the list as the legendary antics of 2 Kings 2:23-24.)

Interestingly, while the Jews and Christians go through major conniptions trying to rationalise the acts of the second half of Genesis 19, the Koran just pretends it doesn't exist, while the offer of Genesis 19:8 is treated as "an offer to marry," even though the girls are betrothed (which is a plot point for the events of 19:30-36).
