How the Scripture gets subtly misquoted

I received an email, from a Christian organization that helps the
poor, and which does NOT support the gay agenda. However,
in citing reasons to be concerned for the poor, this was said:

In a message dated 4/3/2011 1:07:42 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, writes:
The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as another example, is often attributed 
to the blatant practice of homosexuality; however, God clearly links His wrath
toward them to their lack of concern for the poor (Ezekiel 16:49).

This is commonly stated by gay "Christians" who are arguing
that God does not have a bias against homosexual erotic activity.
It was not being used for this purpose, I repeat, this organization
was focussing on the sin of depriving the poor or not helping
them, but had accidentally slipped into some quote they had
picked up somewhere without thinking and checking carefully.
I am sure they reject homosexual acting out and use other
Scripture verses to do so, aside from common sense.

But I recognized this immediately.

To which I answered,

"This is not quite correct, what you mention is only part of it,
and led up to the abomination they committed that was then the
cause of their destruction.

"Never forget context, or accept without checking surrounding
verses, something handed you by someone affected by modern
thinking incl. gay agenda that often likewise misquotes this.

"Here is the whole passage, Ezekiel 16:49 AND 50

""Look, this was the iniquity of your sistem Sodom: she and her
daughter had pride, fulness of food, and abundance of idleness;
neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

""And they were haughty AND COMMITTED ABOMINATION
BEFORE ME; THEREFORE I took them away as I saw fit."

"That second passage shows that all their sins led up to this, the
last straw so to speak, which resulted in God's judgement on them."
