Are we repeating the mistakes from the biblical story of Lot?

Almost everyone is familiar with the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, but there’s a lesson in there you may have never heard. On radio this morning, Glenn explained how the story is a warning against the dangers of compromising your religious principles under pressures from society.

Rush transcript of this segment is below, it may contain grammatical errors:

GLENN: Do you remember the period of time in my life when my daughter was going to Fordham University and the priests at Fordham were teaching her that the Bible was not true?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And the priests were teaching her that the Bible was not true and that the reason why Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed by God had nothing to do with homosexuality. Because, you remember, the angels came in and Lot took them in and said stay in the house.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: Then what happened? This is a fascinating story.

PAT: The people of Sodom came to visit and demanded --

GLENN: They didn't come to visit.

PAT: They demanded that the angels be sent outside so they could have them.

GLENN: So they could have sex with them. Yes. And what did Lot do?

PAT: Offer his daughter instead.

GLENN: His virgin daughter. So just remember this. I want to come back to this in a second. So my daughter is being told, that the homosexuality, that was just a way of greeting. This was what the priests were teaching. That that was just a way of greeting. That it was a traditional greeting back then, that you would say, hey, welcome to our town, I'm going to have homosexual sex with you now.

PAT: Oh, you have to be kidding.

GLENN: No. And it was traditional, and it was normal back then. That's what it was. It had nothing to do with the reason why they were destroyed.

PAT: So they were just knocking on the door to greet them --

GLENN: They were too happy. They were too nice. Okay? So that's what she was taught. And she came back. And you remember the time where I couldn't even have a conversation with my daughter because they had so drilled into her head that people like me had a problem with homosexuals.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I'm like, honey, you know how many homosexual friends we have, how many homosexual employees we have? There's no problem. We have no problem. Okay.

She came to me about three, four months ago, and she said, now, being away from school now, she said, Dad, this is not what they were talking about. They're not forcing everybody to comply.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I said --

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And I said, that's, honey, what I was talking to you about. That this had nothing to do with love. This had everything to do with power.

PAT: Tolerance. All that.

GLENN: Everything to do with power. And they're going to destroy. So she sees it now. That is really important. If -- if the youth begins to see that this is not about love. Because the argument used to be. What difference does it make if two people love each other and want to get married? Right. Right. But that's not the agenda.

Now they can see, that's not the agenda here. The agenda is control and the destruction of anyone else who disagrees.

So let me go back to the story of Lot. See if we're not repeating this.

So Lot goes, and the angels come. And they're just trying to find one good guy. They find Lot. He says, it's not safe here. You can't be two strangers sleeping out on the streets. You have to come to my house. No, no, we're fine. No, you have to come to my house. They come. They have dinner. There's a knock on the door. It's the guys of the community. And they're like, you have two guys in there. Let them come out. We want to have sex with them. And Lot is like, no. No. In fact, guys, you can have my virgin daughters. Don't do this to them.

They say, we're not taking your virgin daughter. We want those guys. Okay? That's the story of Lot in the Bible.

Notice what Lot has done. Lot has offered something that he shouldn't have offered. Lot has said in his language of his day, guys, don't force us to comply. Don't force us to comply. Here, have this. You can take this. Just don't do that. We don't want to do that.

No, you will comply.

It shows that even back then, the religious were willing to -- they didn't want to fight. They don't want -- they're not trying to control everybody. They're just saying, no, I don't want to participate. Think of this. Think of the -- the gay -- the people who won't do floral arrangements for gay weddings, think about the people who are bakers. Now there's another one with a DJ. They just say, I don't want to participate. That's what Lot was saying: We don't want to participate.

And in exchange for not participating, I'll give you something I shouldn't be offering. But I'll comprise this far. But no further.

We're making exactly the same mistakes. And they are making exactly the same demands as were happening in Sodom and Gomorrah. You will comply. No, guys, whatever you want to do outside, you do. But we're inside. We don't want to do that. You will comply.

The question is: Are there enough good people that will stand up without hatred, without trying to force somebody on their belief, and will just stand up and say, no, we're not going to comply. We're not going to do this. I am a man, and with that comes all of the rights given to me by God.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
