After failing to block the Charlotte city council from approving a nondiscrimination ordinance protecting the LGBT community, conservative activists successfully persuaded North Carolina’s GOP-led government last month to pass a sweeping law blocking Charlotte’s measure.
Two of the most visible conservative activists advocating for the move were Jason and David Benham, who, along with their father, Flip Benham, have campaigned against LGBT rights in Charlotte and elsewhere for years, including calling for the Charlotte city government to deny permits to LGBT pride events and organizing a rally against gay rights when the Democratic National Convention was held in the city.
In a WorldNetDaily column today defending the new state law, the Benham twins write that just as the men in the city of Sodom tried to rape the angels who appeared in Lot’s house, now “the newest fruit of the vine of Sodom is the sexual revolution — and it’s poisoning our land. It has nearly taken over everything and is forcing itself on everyone.”
The brothers argue that just as the rapists of Sodom refused Lot’s offer that they rape his daughter instead of the angels, the sexual revolutionaries in America do not believe in compromise or accommodation and simply seek to destroy anyone who doesn’t go along with their demonic agenda.
“Today, the sexual revolution of Sodom has pervaded every sphere of society,” the Benhams write, “capturing both young and old. And anyone standing in the way will be surrounded by an angry mob demanding participation.”
“The sexual revolution is ‘blind’ to its own rage and hate,” they write. “It has no capacity for reason. It has no ability to see its own hypocrisy or discern its hopeless future. It just forces itself on others regardless of cost or consequence.”
America has fallen to this “demanding and pervasive” spirit, the Benham’s continue, “and nothing short of a miracle will stop its deadly poison.”
