And in the evening there came two [a]Angels to Sodom: and Lot sat at the gate of Sodom, and Lot saw them, and rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face to the ground.
And he said, See my lords, I pray you turn in now into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early and go your ways. Who said, Nay, but we will abide in the street all night.
Then [b]he pressed upon them earnestly, and they turned in to him, and came to his house, and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they [c]did eat.
But before they went to bed, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom compassed the house round about, from the young even to the old, [d]all the people from all quarters.
Who crying unto Lot said to him, Where are the men, which came to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
Then Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
And said, I pray you, my brethren, do not so wickedly.
Behold now, I have two [e]daughters, which have not known man: them will I bring out now unto you, and do them as seemeth you good: only unto these men do nothing: [f]for therefore are they come under the shadow of my roof.
Then they said, Away hence: and they said, He is come alone as a stranger, and shall he judge and rule? we will now deal worse with thee than with them. So they pressed sore upon Lot himself, and came to break the door.
But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
Then they smote the men that were at the door of the house, with blindness, both small and great, so that they were weary in [g]seeking the door. (Genesis 19:1-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV))

The organizer of the Trans Day of Vengeance protest scheduled for Saturday at the Supreme Court announced Thursday night the protest has been canceled “due to a credible threat to life and safety” in the wake of the deadly attack on a Christian school in Nashville by a deranged transgender shooter. Meanwhile protests called “March for Queer and Trans Youth Autonomy” are still on for Friday at the Capitol and locations around the country.
Reporting on the Trans Day of Vengeance was censored by Twitter, but not the promotion of the protest by the organizer. Numerous conservative accounts were suspended this week for reporting on or posting this image posted by the organizer:
Our Rights DC posted to Twitter:
“This action will not be taking place Saturday due to a credible threat to life and safety. The safety of our trans community is first priority. This threat is the direct result of the flood of raw hatred directed toward the trans community after the Tennessee shooting…Individuals who had nothing to with that heinous act have been subjected to highly serious threats and blamed only because of their gender identity. This is one of the steps in genocide, and we will continue our efforts to protect trans lives…While we wholeheartedly believe in the mission and message we put forth for trans day of vengeance, we must prioritize the safety of our community and the people that make it up…In an ideal world we would have continued on in defiance of the attempt to silence our right to free expression. However, we lack the resources to ensure the safety of the protest and cannot in good conscience move forward with it…In our continued efforts to preserve trans and non binary life we have notified the appropriate agencies.”
