Interesting, especially the bit about Sodom. Have you read Genesis 19 4:
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
in relation to Ezekiel 16 which repeatedly refers to Sodom and her daughters, e.g. verse 49:
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
In the Genesis quote you will see that the ‘men of the city’ come, and then ‘even the men’ come. Could not the men of the city be women? Could not the ruling council of councilmen be women? Ezekiel strongly suggests that they are. Sodom was a matriarchy would be a natural conclusion. That is why Lot’s wife who was an adult was turned to stone. She was of ‘the men of the city’. Lot, who was not originally from Sodom, offered his daughters, not for sex, but to serve the matriarchy. As virgins they could be married off for political gain.
If that is the case then is it not up to men to marry as many women as possible and keep them in their place so that another Sodom doesn’t happen? In your own words you say that the ‘wisdom’ of women influences one track thinking men; ‘behind every successful man there is a woman’. Maybe Sodom is the end-result? Maybe polygamy is a way to circumvent it?
(Yes, I know. ‘That’s not the way it’s been interpreted’. I get that a lot. However, given this interpretation, to me, is also logical and could reduce the friction between, say, secular views on LGBT and the Catholic position as well as soothe Muslim-Catholic relations, does it not serve to bring humanity together rather than divide it?)
