Terrible twos

Benham bros become totally unhinged while blaming 9/11 and Hurricane Irma on LGBTQ people

Benham Brothers having a meltdown on camera.

The Benham Brothers are at it again.

This week, the twinsies released a video commemorating 9/11 and discussing Hurricane Irma. Naturally, they blame both of those completely unrelated disasters on the same thing: LGBTQ people.

“One of the things we heard a lot 16 years ago was rebuild, rebuild, rebuild,” the brothers say. “But one of the words we didn’t hear was repent.”

“As a nation,” they continue, “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 … I would’ve–I would’ve said, ‘there’s no way that would happen in this country!’”

But it did happen. And now, the twins say, God himself has a message for us, which he sent through the storm surge that came with Hurricane Irma.

“The boundaries that God has put out for us morally are for our flourishing and for his best in our lives,” the twins say. “When we say that gender, there is no boundaries. And when we say that sexuality, there is no boundaries. When we say that marriage can be whatever you want it to be, we are breaching the boundaries of God.

They add: “We as a country, on the anniversary of 9/11, 16 years after that horrific attack took place on our country, God is speaking. Repent! It is time to repent!

    Funny how God always seems to punish the states with the most Christians. Either God has really bad aim or they’re once again making BS up to fit their Bigotry. What’s that saying about creating God in your own image.

    • prarie pup

      LMAO!! That IS funny, huh? Gee, I never put “two and two” together but you’re right; the Bible Belt gets belted REGULARLY.

    • teresa_landreth

      lol including several who said flooding was caused by gays, and he got flooded, and he was a “pastor” or some kind lol

    • calpoidog

      Exactly! To me, these disasters are God’s retribution for judgy Christians. They should worry about their own lives rather and leave everyone else alone.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Imposters resort to rattling the hate-tree to make money.

    • Katsy Kline

      So does God actually cause the disasters to punish LGBTQI people? Or the people who treat them like human beings? And is she holding the tragedies back until she get’s pissed, or does she whip them up from scratch? I really have a lot of theological questions here.

    • contrary1

      Guess they’re getting what they sow….

  • drmiller

    I absolutely love that this country is redefining gender, sexuality, and marriage. To me that’s progress!

    Also, their argument can very easily be flipped on its head. How do they know the hurricanes and such aren’t god’s way of pushing back on Trump and the conservative movement to undo all the progress we’ve made in the areas above? The hurricanes hit the Deep South, all red states. Who exactly is “god” punishing?

    Ahhhh but that’s right. These two 40 year olds (who apparently, still dress like they’re in high school) think they know everything “God” is doing. They alone know her true motives. What kind of arrogant crap is that?

    These type of religious extremists (yup, I said it) think they have some all-knowing, direct line to the divine. They’re never open to new information, or are will to change their mind about anything. How sad that you’ve been indoctrinated with this nonsense for so long, and (likely) at such a young age you were never even given the opportunity to think for yourself. I’d pity them, but I’ll also forget about their pointless existence the moment I post the comment.

    Later fools.

      @drmiller

      “Also, their argument can very easily be flipped on its head. How do they know the hurricanes and such aren’t god’s way of pushing back on Trump”

      If you want to delve into those theories, how do you know the hurricanes aren’t God’s way of punishing illegals for entering into Texas and Florida?

      Not saying I believe that, just saying that if you want to espouse that theory, you don’t sound any different from the guys in this article

    • DCguy

      Except drmiller didn’t say that. But nice try.

  • Sturzl1967

    Weird, I never hurricanes and terrorism didn’t exist before same sex marriage. We gays are like frickin’ superheroes with all these powers.

  • Sturzl1967

    • teresa_landreth

      hey its not just gays, but us Trans as well :D

    • eireapparent

      Like Storm

  • prarie pup

    (Giant, booming voice) BENHAM BROTHERS, I AM GOD. AND I AM PISSED. HOW DARE THEE PRESUME TO SPEAK FOR ME?! FOR THOU SACRILEGE, I NOW GRANT THE GAYS OF AMERICA EVEN MORE POWER TO CONTROL THE WEATHER AND BRING NATIONAL TRAGEDIES FROM FOREIGN LANDS BEYOND THE CONTROL OF THINE PRESIDENT MOST FOUL AND CONTEMPTIBLE, ORANGE HITLER, AN APOSTLE OF SATAN HIMSELF!

    LO, THOUEST HILLBILLY, TARPAPER SHACKS IN WHICH YE HUDDLE, CONSUMED WITH THINE FREAKISH AND BASELESS PARANOIA, SHALL BE SMITTEN MIGHTILY TO RUBBLE BY THE GAYS. WHO HAVE SUPERPOWERS. AND CAN CONTROL THE WEATHER. SO SAYEST I.

    • Heywood Jablowme

      Thou hast a way with words!

  • Joe Dalmas

    So completely ignorant and infantile in their rationale. So God, who in their words sounds like a guy who lives in space, is pissed about cultural changes and sends the flood, and this has nothing to do with global warming but with the gays. Even in the Middle Ages they would think that’s preposterous.

  • Joe Dalmas

    Well, one thing is for sure, now they’ll never get their own show on national TV.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    If gays control the weather, who the f*ck turned up the temperature knob in San Francisco to 106 degrees last week?

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Florida ought to go tiny-home and when the weather turns or God is mad at gays the homes could be linked onto tracks and sent out of danger.

  • flexdoc

    If their eyes were any further apart they’d be rabbits .Clearly there was brain damage at birth.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Rabbits! The capillary-blanch action on the fanatic’s forehead has me bug-in-a-jar’ing it. And he’s merely talking; imagine if he’s in the throes of, ew, his whole skull must go anoxic. Even his lamb-vic’ would need to look away. Boys, protesting too much? The psycho-mean one with killthegays-eyes has queer capillaries. Some seeker will see that white band of oxygen-starved forehead and think, “Halo, how Holy, he.” Lamb-vic’s happy to catch a break. Mint sauce?

  • Roan

    The ambiguously gay no homo bros are back again?

  • teresa_landreth

    just, wow. how much ignorance can you STUFF into two brain dead morons? i guess a lot.

    sorry boys, gays, trans, etc (all except legal same sex marriage) has been here since the country was FOUNDED. not OUR fault, if YOUR god is pissed, maybe you should look at all the supposed “good christians” who wind up being gay, or pedophiles, or crooks of some kind? THAT might be your answer, but really its not. its called science, and CLIMATE CHANGE. if climate didnt change we wouldnt have had ice ages or thaws, droughts or floods, etc.

  • flexdoc

    Definitely have mother and father who are sister and brother.

  • javierson

    Are these two together???

  • javierson

    Why does it always seem as if that’s the only thing in that book???

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Loathing it publicly makes repressed people feel triumphant over desires.

  • RIGay

    They are not aging well. I remember when these two first came onto the scene, they had a hotness to them that, even in mid homophobic rant, made the loins quiver.

    Now they just look like aging trailer trash.

  • DCguy

    God must have terrible aim. He keeps sending the hurricanes to batter the areas that try to pass bigoted anti-lgbt laws. Oooops.

    Sidenote: do these to sleep with each other or hire male prostitutes?

  • tdh1980

    As I’ve said before, I don’t understand why this omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent God simply doesn’t target gays where he *should* know they are exactly using more efficient methods if he wants to rid the world of us so much. He sounds like a dolt to me.

    • 1EqualityUSA

      That’s Holy Dolt, sir.

  • CMarks

    Anyone else see the irony in the fact that all of the states most impacted by by Irma and Harvey are RED states. They are states that voted heavily for Trump. They are among the states who fought hardest against marriage equality and have implemented, or attempted to implement, bathroom bills as well as “religious liberty laws” (allowing legal discrimination)? Maybe, just maybe, their god is really pissed off at the horrible behavior they are crediting on “Christianity” as well as their supporting a thrice married adultery committing FAKE Christian for President. So maybe god isn’t getting even BECAUSE of gays, maybe he’s getting even FOR us.

  • Artiewhitefox

    WOW, O.O. people think the LGBTIQ people have power to control the weather. Those accusers are nuts. The weather will do what the weather will do

  • rbernard

    Does anyone feel it is strange these two protest LGBTQ stuff so much and it’s their issue?
    When there is so much poverty, families without enough to eat, or enough healthcare, these two are off pissing in the wind complaining about what consenting adults do happily in the bedroom.
    Sexually well adjusted people don’t do this.
    Also, why is their all powerful god throwing hurricanes at his own worshipers and making them miserable?
    Wouldn’t be a lot easier for the great and all powerful to pick off the LGBT where they stand instead of wiping out his worshipers?
    I think a more logical answer is the twins’ preacher daddy caught his sons doing the homo-no-no in the back garage and he beat the crap out of them until they became the religious poster boys they are today.
    Look at these two, do they look the slightest bit normal or healthy?

  • alllowercase

    Queerty:
    How about we quit giving Anti-Gay morons such as these what they want which is ATTENTION!

    There is absolutely no reason to include them and their negative “christian” rhetoric on a site devoted to the LGBTQ community. Let’s just ignore them from now on, anybody can follow them or look them up online if they REALLY need to be depressed.

    Concerned reader who only clicked on this story in order to include this comment.

  • Creamsicle

    I don’t understand why Queerty keeps drawing attention to these guys. They’re hateful, inflamatory, and not hot. Their eyes look hollowed out and a little Kathy.

    But even if they were hot they’re still not particularly relevant. I think Queerty is the only place I see any coverage related to them.

    • JoeyRamone

      I like knowing what the opposition is saying. This sh*t gets passed on to all the right-wing nuts via the internet and radio shows. These two incestuous closet cases are just one of many who hold these views. Prefer to stare into the belly of the beast, and know what’s stirring, especially in this political environment.

  • ShowMeGuy

    Who are these two *missing links*?

  • nitejonboy

    The one on the left is definitely a closet case, I’m willing to put money on it.

  • darren michaels

    Strangely it’s most often the gayest looking individuals who offer “direction to the gays” from GOD.
    By volunteering what GOD is thinking these two are essentially making assumptions or in simpler terms, guessing. Voicing one’s interpretation of what GOD is thinking is not GOD’s words, but GOD’s words how that individual understood them, and like snowflakes, no two individuals think the same.
    The “twins” should really be sure they are following the word of GOD themselves before suggesting it of others.

    “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” Exodus 20:16 NIV
    #9 says not to speak dishonestly of our neighbor. Who is our neighbor? All humans.
    The “twins” are breaking this commandment by telling outright lies, they are using deception in the hopes it will cause others to react. We have all been guilty of participating in gossip, whether telling or listening. There is a requirement when sharing negative information (9/11 or weather) to make sure all involved have their facts straight (pun intended). Which again seems rather difficult as “the word of GOD” has very literally been voices only a select few are able to hear.
    Who’s to say the message GOD left wasn’t misunderstood.
    When GOD spoke to me, he said the “twins” edited his original message, neglecting to share exactly what he said. The original message was “If the twins are going to be dishonest about their own sexuality that’s fine but before they make suggestions of how others should live they should really be sure they have lived perfect lives themselves”, and given their most recent actions we know they have not.!!

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Woof. thanks for this, darren michaels

  • Bellerophon69

    I don’t know who they are or why they’re famous, especially after seeing them, but I would just have one comment; interesting gene pool. If they represent the “Anti-Gay Intelligentsia”, we really don’t have too much to fear from these pinheads!

  • HMFan

    Hey, Benham Bros.: Maybe God sent Harvey and Irma because he’s not happy with those who insist on being totally judge-y and speaking as if they KNOW God’s mind. Matthew 7:15—”Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”

  • David

    Dear Benham Brothers. I’m very flattered that thinking about my genitals plays such a huge role in your everyday lives. HOWEVER I also find it a bit creepy. Unlike many of the men in politics who claim to be Christian heterosexuals yet also obsess about my private parts, both of you are actually attractive men and I think if the two of you focused more on women I may eventually see each of you in a photograph with a woman instead of your brother. I may be a gay man but even I know that most women don’t want a boyfriend who thinks about another man’s penis as much as the two of you do.
    As far as repenting goes, I was raised to believe that Christ died on the Cross as payment for all the sins of mankind. It concerns me a great deal when I hear so called Christian Conservatives like yourself implying that the Crucifixion and the forgiveness of sins is a lie.
    Perhaps you need to be reminded of one of the reasons God gave us 4 fingers, two ears and one mouth. Whenever someone points a finger at the faults of another Our Creator reminds us to look at our own failures 3 times closer. When preaching about someone else’s faults or praying, again Our Creator reminds us to spend twice as much time trying to understand how others feel rather than trying to claim we know God’s will for someone else more than we understand his will for us as an individual.
    As for sex and gender, the Bible is very clear. There is no longer male or female for we are all one in Christ.
    Namaste boys.

  • Redmage

    I really can’t stand it when people call themselves Christians, and talk like this. God had absolutely nothing to do with the hurricanes, nor did climate change.. ITS HURRICANE SEASON IDIOTS, and the Earth does indeed have its cycle, as there have been storms and such, that if were to happen today, would freak us the hell out.

    If they actually knew the bible, they’d understand that right now god has no rule on earth, and does not conjure up storms ect, to punish people at random times lol.. When that judgment day comes, which nobody knows, then we will see some wild heavy shit, and god isn’t going to kill someone just because they are gay.. Though the people who will be punished, are those who say and do evil shit, and claim it in his name.. This is blasphemy, and unforgivable.

    • Jeffrey51

      Overly insistent about something, to the point where the opposite is most likely true.

  • jd.cali

    I don’t know, maybe it’s me. But why give these bozos attention?

    That’s what they want. If you do a Benham search on Queerty there are lots and lots of articles on them.

    Who cares their 15 minutes are way over
