UPDATE:

On 5 February 2021, Arts24 (part of News24) published a book review in its literature section titled 'Jesus Thesis and Other Critical Fabulations': The sins Lot's daughters saved from the ash. A complaint was lodged at the Press Council because of explicit words in reference to Jesus, quoted from the book in the review article. Although the Ombudsman first ruled in News24's favour, an appeal hearing has since overturned the ruling and found that News24 has contravened Clause 5 of the Press Code and its Preamble, read together with Clause 7.2 by quoting the offending phrase. News24 accepts this ruling and unreservedly apologises to anyone offended by the quote used in the article. The offending text has been removed from the original article. News24 strives to lead through the highest quality journalism that serves our diverse audience without prejudice.

Few know what Lot's daughters did to him when they found themselves alone in the mountains with their father. Though not redacted, this is one of those parts of the Bible few clergymen are keen to speak on.
