This just in: The antigay Benham Brothers have done a complete 180 on their feelings about LGBTQ people after the massacre in Orlando. They no longer despise them. Instead, they love them. And mourn with them. And wish them all the best. At least according to a recent video they posted on Facebook.
“Our hearts are just broken for the families and for the victims, those who were killed in the gay bar, the gay club in Orlando, Florida,” David Benham say in the video. “You know, this is going to be politicized on both sides. It’s ridiculous! No one should ever be targeted like this, this ISIS plot. And clearly they’re targeting homosexual people.”
Jason then added: “Here’s the interesting thing. We, as Christians, believe that homosexuality is wrong, and the [Islamic extremists] they believe it is wrong. But our response is different. We’ve been going to gay Pride marches for the past decade, and we’re planning on going this year to the Charlotte gay Pride march. But we’re going to bring the love of Jesus, to people who need Jesus!”
“Look,” he continued, “these are our gay brothers and sisters, and we need to stand up for them now. That’s our Christian response.”
In other words: They’re going to be among those crazies holding signs that say things like ‘REPENT!’ and ‘Homo Sex Is Sin’ kicking their way down the street after the parade has passed through. Great.
Just in case you forgot, in the past, the twinsies have compared same-sex marriage to Nazi Germany and have taken part in countless antigay rallies and protests. And in recent months, they have been vocal supporters of Pat McCrory’s bathroom laws. Oh, and they once suggested giving out free baseball tickets to gay people could cure them of their homosexual desires.
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and see what the brothers have said about gay people in the not-so-distant past, shall we?
But hey, all that’s in the past, right? Today they stand with their “gay brothers and sisters.” That is, until their “religious liberty” is threatened again.
