Benham Bros Reference 9/11 While Blaming Hurricanes on LGBTQ People

Thursday Sep 14, 2017

Some grapes grow more sour with time.

Such is the case with would-have-been TV celebrities David and Jason Benham, who joined the chorus of religious right wing figures who are blaming the recent storms that have ravaged the southeastern United States on LGBTQ citizens gaining equal rights.

In a Facebook video published Monday, the anti-LGBTQ twins claimed that "God is speaking"; first through the 9-11 terror attacks, and now through hurricanes."

"One of the things we heard a lot 16 years ago was rebuild, rebuild, rebuild," David Benham said. "But the word we didn't hear was repent, because as a nation if you would have told us back then in 2001 that in 2017 we would be completely redefining what gender means, what marriage means, what sexuality means, people wouldn't even be standing for the anthem, and there'd be riots and protests in our streets and white supremacists with torches in their hands, and Antifa bullying and beating people into comas, I would have said there's no way that would happen."

Not to be outdone by his brother, Jason Benham took over.

"So God is speaking through the wind and now we have, just yesterday, Hurricane Irma touching land in Florida and God is speaking saying, 'I'm making the wind my messengers,'" Jason said.

Bookending their remarks, the pair returned to 9/11, but not before doing a little transgender bashing along the way.

"And when we say that gender, there is no boundary," he continued, "When we say that sexuality, there is no boundary. When we say that marriage can be whatever you want it to be, we are breaching the boundaries of God and we as a country on the anniversary of 9/11, sixteen years after that horrific terrorist act took place in our country, God is speaking: 'Repent. Yes, you've rebuilt, but it's time to repent.'"
