IfIf the Bible were a movie, it would be rated R — maybe XXX. The holy book of the Christian faith overflows with tawdry tales of sex, violence, and murder. Some of the well-known stories exist in the cultural ethos as pastors, Sunday school teachers, and even spiritual-themed cartoons cover them frequently.

Stories like David and Goliath, Adam and Eve, and Moses and the 10 Commandments. Even the bloody execution of Jesus is common fare preached from the pulpit.

Then there are the lesser-known stories churches seem to avoid — almost hide away from the masses.

Like the shocking story of the “Bill Cosby” of the Bible.

Disclaimer: This story is meant to discuss a historical record in the Bible, not disparage revered scripture or insult Christians. Nor is this piece meant to attack or support Bill Cosby.

Is This the Bible or Pornhub?

Here’s how the taboo story starts. According to the Biblical record, a guy named Lot escaped to the mountains near the Dead Sea with his two daughters.
