On Tuesday, David Benham continued his charade about showing “love” for gay people in a radio interview with Bryan Fischer, the notoriously anti-gay radio host whose bigotry is so extreme that even Mitt Romney felt the need to condemn his “poisonous language.”
Along with his brother Jason, Benham spoke to Fischer about his “love” for gay people. Benham has previously expressed this “love” by labeling homosexuality “destructive,” “demonic” and akin to Nazism. The interview should come as no surprise, as Benham and Fischer both claim that demonic forces are behind homosexuality, which they both insist is a statement of love.
Fischer, for his part, openly admits that he supports anti-gay discrimination , claims gays are “demonic,” has likened gays to terrorists, wants gays removed from public office and blamed the Holocaust on gay people. The American Family Association spokesman — who supports the criminalization of homosexuality — has backed draconian anti-gay laws in countries like Uganda, India and Russia.
While Benham has denied making anti-Muslim remarks, the same cannot be said for Fischer, who wants to forcibly convert Muslims with threats of violence, whom he claims worship a demon; ban Muslim immigration and mosques; thinks Islam should be outlawed; demands the deportation of Muslim-Americans and believes Muslims are inherently stupid and violent.
Let Fischer explain this disingenuous view of “love” for Muslims and gays:
Today, Benham told the Christian Broadcasting Network that homosexuality has turned from a “sin” into “an agenda that not only dominates and permeates” but “seeks to assassinate” people like him:
Where we are in terms of national sin, where we approve of what God disapproves of, when we do that it will ultimately get to the point where that sin will become an agenda that not only dominates and permeates, but it seeks to assassinate anyone who speaks out against it. That’s where we are as a nation.
