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.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
