On radio Tuesday, Glenn told listeners about a nightmarish video recently released by ISIS purportedly showing a horrific killing where the victims were burned alive while hanging from a swing set.
"Meanwhile, our churches, for the most part, remain silent," Glenn said. "Evil makes itself so overwhelming that you just think you can't do anything about it."
In reality, there is so much we can and should do, Glenn said.
"We can save 2,000 people or more by Christmas," Glenn said. "And that's only if 400 churches get involved. 400 churches that say, 'hey, I will take a family.' Now, it's $25,000 to get those families here."
Donations to the Nazerene Fund at Mercury One will be used to save these lives.

GLENN: ISIS has burned to death four Iraqi men by chaining them upside down on a swing set.
They took the chains off the swing set and took the men, put them in an orange jumpsuit, changed their arms and legs together behind, and then took the chain of the swing set and hung them there so their face and their knees were pointed towards the ground.
Then they soaked the men's clothing and their hair in gasoline. And then they took the gasoline and made a long line, a fuse, if you will, out to where their cameras were. One of the men took a torch and lit the fuse.
Before they were chained up, they had to introduce themselves to the camera, giving their names and brief description in their role in fighting against ISIS.
Underneath them, when they had been changed up, the line of fuel had been poured and slight patches of straw it been added to prepare the flames. And the video shows the slow motion footage as the fire begins to burn up the line of fuel, heading rapidly towards the men. Final few seconds of footage are too graphic to even describe. But the men are seen burning to death.
Prior to death, the prisoners are made to watch several videos showing the mutilation of bodies of the dead ISIS fighters by members of the Iraqi army and the Iranian militias.
Meanwhile, the rape rooms continue. In warehouses all across Syria, they have taken thousands of children, children as young as one to nine years old. Those are the ones that get the most money at the auction block. The one, two, three, 5-year-olds. And they can be used for rape. They can be used for slave labor. But a lot of them they keep in the warehouses. It's where they keep the Yazidi women. The Yazidi children. The Christian children. The Christians. The Muslims who are just not Muslim enough are generally killed. The Christians are used for sport.
The New York Times reports today, the Middle East, that they have photos now. There was a day of conflicting reports about the extent of what ISIS was doing. They finally got down to the bottom of it. It looks like the main building of the Temple of Baal has been destroyed now. They were all upset. They took satellite images and compared the old, ancient 2000-year-old temple. And they wanted to make sure that it was -- what the extent of damage was done to that. So that's on the New York Times' front page today because they care about the artifacts.
Meanwhile, our churches, for the most part, remain silent. America remains silent, repeating the exact mistakes we made with the Jews in the 1930s, turning our head, denying to ourselves that it's really that bad, denying that we could do anything about it. See, as I pointed out in my speech on Saturday at Restoring Unity, that's how evil works. Evil makes itself so overwhelming that you just think you can't do anything about it.
And so while we care deeply, we think we can't do anything about it, so we do nothing. And that's how evil works. Until people like Johnnie Moore get on an airplane and just leave their job. One day they just leave their job and they go and buy a ticket to Iraq and they just go and see what's going on. How can I help? To have them come back and tell the stories to us. And we think we can't do anything about it.
Do you not go to church every Sunday? If you go to church every Sunday, is your pastor talking about it? And if your pastor's not talking about it, why isn't your pastor talking about it? Why isn't your pastor and your church raising the funds right now to be able to evacuate some of these families?
We can save 2,000 people or more by Christmas. 2,000 people. Just so, you know, that's 800 more people than Schindler and his list saved. We can save 2,000 souls. And that's only if 400 churches get involved. 400 churches that is, hey, I will take a family. Now, it's $25,000 to get those families here. We'll break all those families down for you by the end of the week so you know exactly where the money is going, how it's being used. But did you see what Iceland is doing? Because Iceland is only a country of 300,000 people. 300,000 people in the entire country.
But one woman got on Facebook. She's a prominent author in Iceland. And she couldn't take it. And so she went on Facebook and she launched a campaign after the government said we'll take 60 refugees. We'll take 60. She thought, that's not enough.
So she went on Facebook and she said, who else will take some? Who will volunteer as a family to take a family in? I'm asking you, which churches -- will your church volunteer to take a family in? In the space of 24 hours, 10,000 Icelanders offered up their homes and urged their government to do more.
People wrote in, I'm a single mother with a 6-year-old son, I can take a child in need. I'm a teacher, I'll teach a child to speak, read, write. Adjust to our society. Another one wrote, I have clothes, a bed, toys, everything children would need. I'll pay for the airline ticket even to get them here.
Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, I'll offer up my home. I'll offer up my money. I'm asking you to do the same thing today. I'm going to post in a few minutes just a quick note that just says, what churches will take a family? What people will take one person? Will you offer up your home? See, when I started telling you that we are going to repeat the 1930s, everybody thought I was nuts. When I said, we're going to have to be a people that will hide or take people. Are you -- are you willing to be one of the righteous among the nations?
I thought this would happen with the Jews. I didn't think it would happen with the Christians. I thought it would happen with the Jews. But it's happening with the Christians. So now, what are we going to do? I ask you again what I asked you six, seven, eight, ten years ago. When the world goes mad and the world is crucifying people, when they're building houses of horror and concentrate camps -- I mean, what's the difference between the concentrate camp at Auschwitz and the one barrack in Auschwitz that held female prisoners that were used as prostitutes, used as pleasure receptacles, forced to have sex -- what's the difference between that and the 8-year-old girl that just escaped ISIS, who has testified that she was raped up to ten times a day every single day? What is her life like? What's the difference?
There is none. We said never again. Well, never again is now. I have a goal of raising $10 million by Christmas. That's a huge goal. I don't know if we can even make that. That's the largest amount of money we've ever asked to raise, by far. By far.
Maybe we can only make 5 million. I don't know. We've already raised 3 million. And not from big donors. Big checks. The average check is $100. It's the average listener. But it's the average listener that wants their name in the book of life. They want their name. This is the time that giants are born. And you're either going to sit on the sidelines. And not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. You're going to sit on the sidelines, and your name is going to be written in the book of death. Or you'll find a way -- if you have no money, can you house somebody? Can your neighborhood house somebody? Can your church house a family? Can you help spread the word? Can you help just as a prayer warrior? What is it that you can do? Because everybody has something.
You don't have to be the one out front leading. You don't have to be the one with all the money. The greatest donation we've ever received at any time was right before Restoring Honor in Washington, DC. Somebody sent in -- a man sent in 8 cents. He said that at the end of the month, that's all he had. But he took and he cashed those eight pennies. And he said, I just want to do my part. And I'm sorry. That's all I can do. That happened the week before Restoring Honor, where we were behind and we were in debt. We didn't know how we were -- and the government was telling us we needed extra security. Another $500,000 in extra security. We didn't know how we were going to be able to raise it. I thought we were going to have to call off Restoring Honor. We were a week away.
It was a Saturday that I got that note. On Monday, I had to go on the air and say, we might have to cancel this because we don't have enough money and the government is asking us more. Instead, I went on, and I put those 5 cents or 8 cents down on the table. Jeffy, will you go get them? They're right over there in that corner. They're next to the horns.
STU: Usually not a good idea to trust Jeffy with loose money.
GLENN: I know. Off in the corner, Jeffy. In the last row. It's a little picture with 8 cents in it. See it? Down towards the bottom. It may have been moved.
STU: Jeffy made it disappear. Shocking.
GLENN: They're eight pennies. I still have them. Because they changed everything. Because of the faith of one person that just said, I'm going to do my part. I don't know what your part is. But I'd like to suggest that we go on Facebook today and we see how many people are willing to say, I'm willing to take a family. My church will take a family.
