    There was a man (we will call him Phineas) who had some guests over. His bad neighbors thought it would be fun to rape those guests. They gathered in great numbers outside phineas's house and demanded he handed those guest over for a little game of raping.

    Phineas wouldn't have that, he was a good man. He tried to persuade his neighbours to give up rape on this occasion, but to no success.
    Seeing he couldn't persuade them, he said:
    "Look what i have here: 2 young virgin daughters . Let me bring them out to you, and you can do to them whatever you please."

    The man offered his daughters, whom he had a responsibility to protect, to an angry rapey mob.

    Evil or not?

    Have you been reading some self-help blogs on the basics in morality.

    Evil. Though it has to be said, the bible doesn't say that idea came from God, nor does the bible say this was okay to do.

    "By helping Lot, God approved of this."
    Not really; the daughters weren't actually given up.

    This may be a cultural matter. It is possible that the man was doing the right thing by protecting his quests at all costs according to his culture. Maybe it is a part of his evolution.

    some cultures demanded witches be tortured and burned at the stake. the fact that something is a part of one culture doesn't mean we cannot judge it to be moral or not.

    i know it was a cultural thing, i am asking if it is evil or not.

    The best defense against the Nicolas Cage attack is the Tom Hanks Gambit.
