Benham brothers claim God sent hurricanes to tell us to “repent” for LGBT+ rights


Religious right twins David and Jason Benham have blamed a string of recent natural disasters on LGBT+ people.

…because of course they have.

In a Facebook video shared on the anniversary of 9/11, the homophobic former baseball players claimed that God has been sending hurricanes to warn Americans against supporting equal rights for LGBT+ people.

“If you would’ve told us back in 2001 that in 2017 we’d be completely redefining what gender means, what marriage means, what sexuality means… I would’ve said there’s no way that would happen in our country,” David said.

Jason then cited Psalms 104:4, which explains how God ‘makes the winds his messengers’.

“God is speaking through the wind, and now we have just yesterday Hurricane Irma touching land in Florida, and God is saying ‘I’m making the winds my messengers’,” he claimed.

The brothers, who were fired from their HGTV reality show in 2014 after making anti-gay comments, argue that the hurricanes breaking the boundaries between land and water is a symbol of people breaking God’s boundaries.

“When we say that gender, there is no boundary; 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 boundary of God,” David continued.

“And we as a country, on the anniversary of 9/11, 16 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!’

“Because the damage is when the boundaries are removed and that storm surge of moral corruption comes in, that’s what is devastating our nation.”
