Short dramatization of the Bible story of Lot and his daughters

I attended Catholic Church for many years as a child.   I don’t remember even once hearing any priest feature the story of Lot, the angels, and Lot’s wife and daughters at Mass.   Now I know why, of course.  It’s just so much easier to pretend that this story doesn’t even exist in the Bible.   It’s much easier to cherry pick in order to maintain that every word in “the Bible” is the inspired literal teaching of God.

Question:  Do any of readers remember ever hearing any sort of priest, preacher or minister presenting the details of the story of Lot during any worship service?

Here’s the animated version of the story:

Now maybe you’re not into kinky sex.   But maybe the Bible still has something for you.  For instance, are you pro-slavery?   So is God:

    I remember when I was a child and my mother made me go to church, sit through the sermon and go into the Sunday School class.

    The story of Lot and his wife was censored , I mean edited , completely leaving out the daughters and any details about the nature of the evil sins of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    I sometimes wonder if the Sodom and Gomorrah story added details from the destruction of Pompei and Herculaneum (both of which were destroyed by the pyroclastic eruption of Mt Vesuvius). It is reasonable to think the original story may have been embellished before it was committed to a scroll.
