Radio host Glenn Beck took an ongoing election-year feud with Sean Hannity to his official Facebook page Tuesday after the Fox Host lumped him in with “saboteurs” of the conservative movement.

Mr. Hannity used his radio show Monday to cast Mr. Beck as a “myopic” man whose opposition to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is ideologically treasonous.

The Blaze founder countered that America’s Founding Fathers did not encourage an unshakable allegiance to one political party, and that his behavior belies his Christian faith.

Sean will always be welcome in my world. He is not my enemy. Nor is D Trump,” Mr. Beck wrote. “Jesus didn’t teach ‘when they hit you, hit back twice as hard.’ That was from rules from radicals which is dedicated to Satan. It is also what DJT teaches and I have heard Sean say a lot lately. … Please forgive me for whatever set you off this time. I am sorry we disagree on who we are going to vote for. I have voted for a republican my whole life, starting with Reagan. I can’t do it this time. I am sorry that this disappoints everyone so much.”

The impetus for Mr. Beck’s comments came Monday, when Mr. Hannity said he had no desire to mend fences with the “Never Trump” movement after the presidential election.

Glenn Beck was saying, ‘Oh, we got to all come together after the election’ — I’m not interested in coming together with a bunch of saboteurs,” Mr. Hannity said, Business Insider reported Tuesday. “I just have no interest in that, and people that are myopic. … You sabotage, you stay home, you help [Hillary Clinton], and you own her Supreme Court nominees, you own her unvetted refugees, you own radical Islam being empowered because they know she’s weak.”

Mr. Beck responded that he simply refuses to “play the game” and “betray what I feel is right and true.”

“I am in good company because I know our founders were just as disgusted as most Americans are now with the two parties,” Mr. Beck told his 3 million-plus Facebook followers. “They did warn us of these kinds of inflamed passions after all.”
