  1. H746 – Burlington is now “Sodom and Gomorrah, Vermont”.

    Deuteronomy 32: 32-33 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom And of the fields of Gomorrah; Their grapes are grapes of gall, Their clusters are bitter. 33 Their wine is the poison of serpents, And the cruel venom of cobras.

    2 Peter 2: 6 Doom of False Teachers – and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

    Deuteronomy 32:43 “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people; For He will avenge the blood of His servants, And render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”

  2. How about offering job training instead? I’ve never read that any woman loves this kind of work.

  3. Will there be government act 250 sanctioned whorehouses or just freelancers?
