Benham Brothers: ‘Satan Run’ LGBT Movement Seeks to ‘Rob, Kill, and Destroy’ – VIDEO


Would-be HGTV hosts David and Jason Benham have been gearing up for their headline appearance at an anti-LGBT 'family' summit today by making the rounds on right-wing Christian radio programs sharing their thoughts gays – such as how the battle against LGBT rights is a really just a battle against a "parallel kingdom run by Satan." that seeks to "rob, kill, and destroy."

You know, the usual right-wing nuttery… 

Speaking to The Family Leader's Tamara Scott, David Benham said the following:

"If my son throws food across the table and I say, 'Bailey, stop throwing food' and he says 'I'm sorry Dad, I'm just a food-thrower.' It's like no you're not, your behavior is not you. It doesn't define you. So its very important that we speak to the fact that homosexuality is a sin that can only be redeemed by God when we repent. But the idea of a 'homosexual agenda' that seeks to capture the nation and capture children's curriculum and capture television and entertainment and laws – that is an idea that is evil and wrong and needs to be dealt with." 


The Family Leadership Summit – the annual summit of Iowa's leading anti-LGBT group The Family Leader led by Bob Vander Plaats takes place today in Ames, Iowa. Other guests include Sen. Ted Cruz (and his insane pastor father), failed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and many, many more..

Stay tuned today and tomorrow for more from the anti-gay extravaganza.

    who are they again? the new face of incestuous inbreeding?

    i can see it now…

    “well, we got into home renovations when we got locked away alone together in an attic during adolescence…. there wasn’t a lot to do, so we became very close. VERY close. blossoming together, like…flowers…in the attic…. we really got into flip-flopping. we LOVE to flip! and flop! houses”


  2. northalabama says

    they make public statements like these, and then wonder what happened to their hgtv show? they really aren’t that bright, are they – that, or there’s simply too much ” religious love” around for them to think clearly…

  3. JackFknTwist says

    What are they attending ?
    A Satan Summit of the disturbed, the bewildered and the ‘Duh, bro, how did we get to be experts on gays, again ?’

  4. barryearle says

    I think reducing these people to the phrase “wing nuttery” reduces the destructive intentions of their actual agenda. And they do have an agenda. It’s about turning America into the Christian (read: fundamentalist) nation they believe the founders wanted to create. And not taking them seriously can mean one day we will wake up and it will be closer to their vision than we would like. Have your fun but also pay very close attention. A lack of awareness can have a very bad outcome.

  5. Lymis says

    Yes, David, but when you tell the same son to use his right hand to write with and he says, “Sorry, Dad, but I’m left-handed,” while that doesn’t define him entirely either, it’s still a truth about him, and one that other people have no reason to notice until it manifests as visible behavior – bur that doesn’t make left-handedness a behavior. It’s a reality and an identity and a simple fact that show up in some ways as behavior.

    But, chances are reasonably good you wouldn’t try to rewrite the US Constitution to deny the fundamental rights of people who throw food, either.

  6. JackFknTwist says

    “A parallel kingdom run by Satan…..”
    -does he mean the GOP ?

    I have listened to this vile verbiage of these fools on the clips above.
    It’s non stop learned script, mixed with some supernatural overlay which would blend in well with the 13th or 14th pre Reformation superstitions of Albigensians……who also believed in ” a parallel kingdom”.
    These fools prattle on without having a clue.
    As Kiwi says, I thought they were house renovators……..when did they get degrees in Divinity ?

  7. e.c. says

    Remember when they kept insisting that they loved everybody and weren’t the gay-hating homophobes that people were making them out to be? Guess the decided to just drop that act altogether and go full crazy train.

  8. Elliott says

    I only want these guys to succeed… Let them spread their word as far and wide as they may and further their careers using their talents and their ideas. But, I, for one, will relish their undoing… it is only a matter of time and scrutiny that they will be exposed for the jerks and sell-outs that they are. Give me a court side seat!

  9. Deth says

    Will SOMEBODY PLEASE rob, kill, and then destroy them! Put their mangled bodies in a large Baphomet Pentagram.

    Write “Self-fulfilling Prophesy” nearby…

    These SICKOS think they’re having – or they’re encouraging others to have – a ‘battle with Satan’ by proxy. It’s monstrous. They’re saying you can defeat Satan by robbing, killing, and destroying equality for gays.

    They’re posturing themselves as martyrs ALREADY, and their flock is lapping it up. Somebody needs to dispatch them before they start assembling their anti-gay Christian army.

  10. ascanius says

    more bible babble lunacy.

    and the gentle “liberal” christers enable them.

    their anti-gay version of the christian mythological world is just as vaid/invalid as the pro-gay version of the liberals.

    there is no credible evidence for anything supernatural, much less for the barbaric, totalitarian god of the bible.

    religion needs to be discouraged and discredited, even among the liberal christers.

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”

    Steven Weinberg, Nobel Prize Physics

  11. The_Myth says

    Lymis: Interestingly, my grandfather used to smack my dad and his one brother when they used their left hands at the dinner table. It *is* the sinister side of the body, after all….

    All in all, I think HGTV is probably breathing a sigh of relief for dodging the Benham bullet (so to speak).

  12. Bryan L says

    When are the Christians who believe in love instead of hate, peace instead of violence, acceptance instead of intolerance going to speak out about this kind of insanity. The Benham idiots and all the participants of the so-called Family Leadership Summit are not battling a “parallel kingdom run by Satan”…they’re actually enabling it.

  13. ToThePoint says

    I think it is painfully obvious to them they are full of satanic sin themselves and are actively hiding their true evil sexual intentions. Self-loathing gays, that is.

  14. David in the O.C. says

    “So its very important that we speak to the fact that homosexuality is a sin that can only be redeemed by God when we repent.”

    It’s sounds like he’s talking from experience here. How else could he know that homosexuals can be redeemed by God if he himself hasn’t been redeemed? — Of course the fact that he’s comparing throwing food to sexual orientation makes him truly one of the most stupid people in existence. But in the circles he runs in it’s par for the course.

  15. Bernie says

    too bad during the next “recruitment” of gay people, we can’t recruit these cute, but hateful homophobes….maybe, we should offer them a toaster if they join us before the Christmas rush……

  16. Cassandra says

    “When are the Christians who believe in love instead of hate, peace instead of violence, acceptance instead of intolerance going to speak out about this kind of insanity. ”

    We have been for years, Bryan. Pay attention, before you start to sound like one of the Benham brothers yourself.

  17. james street james says

    Their next career will be as preachers. It beats working. It’s a form of show business. Passing the plate can be very lucrative. All you need is the plate and a lot of hot air. Maybe they could start out by opening for Franklin Graham?

    And if they can get a tv audience they will be all set. There’s no money in local radio, but it is a stepping stone. It’s what Jesus would have done, if he had had PR and management.

  18. funinsnowfall says

    see this video done by an honest homosexual man

    Though it’s repeat it must be said again. A person is homosexual or lesbian if they knowingly and willing do same sex behaviors. If a person has homosexual activities with a young boy, then they are a homosexual pedofile. Jerry A. Sandusky is a homosexual pedofile-even if J.A. Sandusky calls himself straight, he would still be gay by behavior definition. But homosexual groups say that he is not gay when his conduct defines him as such.The priests who molest young boys are gay pedophiles. If a man has sex with little girls only, then he is a straight pedophile. Rush H. Limbaugh’s right when he said Jerry A. Sandusky is gay-and columnist Patrick J. Buchanan condemns who he calls gay priests. Those priests are again gay pedophiles, pederasts or homolesters. So there are many homosexual pedophiles such as the gay priests, Jerry A. Sandusky.

    Again, it’s sexual conduct or behavior which defines if 1 is straight or homosexual. Since homosexuals and lesbians (transexuals) often suffered childhood sex abuse, it’s no surprise that homosexuals and lesbians think childhood sexual abuse is OK when it’s homosexual activities. All homosexual pedofiles are homosexuals. All transexuals are homosexual/lesbian as the act of mutilating to become false opposite sex is itself an act of homosexuality/lesbianism-sad maiming and make this illegal. homosexual groups got offended when columnist Patrick J. Buchanan condemned gay priests. What those priests did when they molest young boys is homosexuality.

  19. funinsnowfall says

    You can be secular as I am and see the harms of homosexual and lesbian behavior as you can see the harms of tobacco use. Behavior including sexual behavior can be learned. While they have not conclusively proven same sex behaviors are genes-if that is true, it would be same as alcoholic gene. It’s undebatable truth that if a person’s a victim of childhood sex abuse, then it’s more likely he or she will do gay/lesbian conduct repeating what he learned-those who deny are either dishonest, delusional or both. There could be possibly be genes, but if that’s true then the gay gene would be the same thing as heart attack gene. There is more than 1 cause for why a conduct happens.

    Gerald (Jerry) A. Sandusky is a gay pedophile because he did homosexual relations with young boys though he was also married to a woman. The priests who molest young boys are gay pedophiles. If a man has sex with little girls only, then he is a straight pedophile. You didn’t say anything I haven’t already thought about. Rush H. Limbaugh’s right when he said Jerry A. Sandusky is gay-a gay pedophile and columnist Patrick J. Buchanan condemns who he calls gay priests who molest young boys. Those priests are again gay pedophiles, pederasts or homolesters. All transexuals are homosexual/lesbian as the act of mutilating to become false opposite sex is itself an act of homosexuality/lesbianism-sad maiming and make this illegal.

    While I’m neutral on abortion, in justness to pro-lifers they believe abortion is killing a baby-there are many women pro-lifers so it’s not men seeking to control women’s bodies. If they decided to make abortion illegal, then I would not care 1 way or another. I’m pro-abortion in some cases such as if it can be predicted an unborn baby will be deformed, transexual or gay-then go ahead and abort them. But I understand view of pro-lifers regarding abortion as murder. I’m against sterlizations. There’s birth control such as the pill, condoms & old fahshioned Rhythm Method. Sterilization surgeries however are mutilations. Unless it’s a hysterectomy to save a life, they must make it a crime to do sterilizations. Sterilizations are spaying & neutering people. Also they make less attractive. All things=, if you have an intact woman vs. a woman who has been spayed, most men would take the intact woman. Same thing with a man who is intact vs. a man who has had a vasectomy, most women would choose the intact man.

    I support birth control but am against sterilization surgeries. I oppose breast implants because they are fake (excludes reconstruct surgeries for women who have had breast disease). If a woman has naturally nice big boobs as singer Katy E. Perry has (she is listed as DD but there are women with bigger boobs than her), then that is good. There is nothing wrong with a woman having small boobs. Most men want a woman with natural boobs-small, medium or big vs. a woman with fake boobs. I would limit Viagra in most cases because those are performance enhancers. If a man is let’s say 25 years old and in a wheelchair, then I support him using Viagra to have sex with his wife or girlfriend and have kids with her because there’s a use to it. But I am against Viagra or any other sexual enhancement drug for old men because that’s like giving steroids to nfl player. I would also be against giving Viagra and sexual enhancement drugs to homosexuals. So I would limit Viagra or other sexual enhancement drug to straight men who are under 40 years old with a handicap to that they can father children which below a certain age it’s medicine, but after a certain age it’s performance enhancers comparable to Steroids as Viagra, Zestra are.

    I support fertility treatments and I support In Vitro Fertilization. There are couples who want children but because the mom has problems getting pregnant or giving birth the only way for a man and his wife to have children is by In Vitro Fertilization. Let’s say that you have a man and a wife and the wife is let’s say paralyzed so that giving birth would be dangerous. I would support that couple’s right to In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) so that both can enjoy having a family, raising kids, taking kids to the zoo, fun of seeing kids raise pets and so on. While In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) is not perfect, In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) must be there for couples who have problems having children. I also support Artificial Insemination with regulations. If you have a straight couple and let’s say the husband has disease where treatment could keep him from having children. Man should have a right to have his sperm stored so that he and his wife can have children. If however, you have artificial insemination for purpose of single parenthood or homosexual parenting, then it is a problem. Of course if a woman wants to have a child without father involvement then what she can do is have a 1 night stand. Also I have a friend who is a Born Again Christian who has told me that he supports In Vitro Fertilization because I.V.F. is about creating life while abortion is about preventing life so there are pro-lifers who support I.V.F. In Vitro Fertilization must be there for people who have problems having children.

    “We have been for years, Bryan. Pay attention”
    Excuse me. Can you tell us when and where?
    What we heard are the anti-gay rhetoric from the movers and shakers of the Grand Old Party like Bachmann, Perry, Huckleberry, Santorum etc etc. And the talking down from the donuts bishop. We all must have missed the rebuttals from the pro-gay religious groups. Their voice is so weak and inaudible. As one play puts it : “They have no clout.” And no voice.
    I am still waiting for a forceful rebuttal of Tim Donut by some religious group.
    Your “we have been for years” is not based on facts, just like the Bible.

  21. Robert says

    These guys own real estate brokerages and do business with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD.
    They should loose their licenses and contract agreements for their discriminatory statements. These repeated statements are a huge violation of equal housing. Why are they allowed to continue with this behavior.

  22. Bill says

    @Robert : they would only get in trouble regarding real estate brokerages if they discriminated, not if they mouth off while having too large a pitcher of beer at Paddy’s Bar and Grill.

    They are making the rounds on the Right-wing Christian circuit right now, and will get more strident because that is what their new audience wants to hear.

    They could argue with a gay couple on TV and, if that couple tried to buy real-estate from them, they could act really friendly. It would be like the Woody Allen movie where he showed a talk show where they invited some skin heads and orthodox rabbis and ended up with loud arguments on camera. The next scene was backstage, and they were all standing around being polite. One of the rabbis said, “The skinhead ate all the bagels,” as both groups quietly sipped some coffee.

    If you want to have some fun with these guys, if you can get them to try to sell you a house, get a video of them as you tell them that you need a house with a basement and good sound isolation as you plan to set up some bondage equipment and don’t want loud noise to disturb the neighbors. If they are in real estate mode, they won’t bat an eyelash and will just show you whatever house they think you might buy.

  23. David says

    I always think of the CHURCH LADY when I hear zealots use the word “Satan”. These two closet queens need to stop worrying about what they wish they could do with each other.

  24. BrokebackBob says

    The Benham brothers have demonstrated repeatedly to everyone that they, and all those who follow their beliefs about LGBT people, need to be sent forcibly back to the place of all evil (ironically, Satan is the king there, not Jesus) from which their souls have escaped. They need to be exorcised from our world back into theirs. I see no difference between demonic possession and the hate and violence that these “people” spew forth upon the entire world. It is not just the Benham brothers but millions and millions of other souls that draw their life force from hate and violence.

  25. Bart says

    Throwing food is your argument? Seriously. Are these guys that incredibly, deeply dim-witted? They should be embarrassed that this is the best comparison they have to human sexuality. It just shows how utterly ignorant and inconsequential these two dicks-with-ears really are.

    They are an embarrassment to their own argument, which is dunderheaded at face value. They can’t even curry favor with a legitimate argument.

  26. Shannon says


  27. says

    In my opinion, house-flipping, which these two evil brothers practice, is a sin. Taking advantage of sellers without the resources to fix up homes themselves (often elderly, poor and/or minorities) and reaping profits from their disadvantage, then selling the properties to rich gentrifiers. Of course, many gay people also practice the sin of house-flipping, but that still doesn’t make it right. These sinful Benham brothers should repent.

  28. jeff says

    These guys share a Christofascist agenda that is simply genocide against LGBT citizens. They share it with each other and most evangelical christians. I wish that true christians who follow Jesus actual teachings would stand up and be counted as not on this insane “kill the gays” train, and call these hateful killers out for the evil hypocrites that they are.

  29. Nelson says

    1.) At 61, I am still waiting for my copy of this damn “gay agenda” to arrive in the mail. I still fail to see why being treated as a full citizen of the country I live in is some sort of magical agenda. I’m SURE I am missing something!
    2.) They “define” themselves by their behavior every day by “flaunting” their heterosexuality, their religion-based intolerance, their ignorance of biological and psychological science, and a thousand other things.
    3.) Oh yeah – the silly idea that Satan exists. Don’t get me started.

  30. jjose712 says

    The tv station wanted their own version of the Scott brothers, and it was a big faliure.

    This guys are the worst kind of liers, they must not remember the whole “we don’t hate anyone” that they said after their firing

  31. Tigernan says

    I don’t know who this “FUNINSNOWFALL” creature is, but it’s mindboggling that this post go left there while so many others are deleted. I think I might have to give some credit to the whole “this place has gone way downhill” repetitions.

  32. jmartindale says

    To attempt to define sexual orientation as akin to a child throwing food is not only absurd, it is insulting. Your cult may believe there is something wrong with my sexual orientation, but there is not. It is not bad behavior. It is not immoral. It is not harmful to anyone. It is a normal variant of the human condition. You are a gullible, superstitious childish clown who whines that the people he is trying to oppress have taken his ball away.

  33. NE1 says

    Oh come on now. Calling gay people child like food throwers? He was gonna have a show on HGTV?? Do these people go to church just to learn how to insult people?

  34. NE1 says

    got 43 seconds into the first clip, if that woman can introduce that story without mentioning that man’s use of the word Gaystoppo, then she is using propaganda, and that irony was too much bear listening to. horrible.

  35. funinsnowfall says

    Something to regard-if you’re a store owner there is no need to put up signs that say ‘don’t steal’ because stealing is a crime and no need to say no to a crime the other person has no right to do. If some1 is stealing from your store, the right thing to do is use reasonable (not excess) force to stop the the thief and have the police arrest the thief. If you do nothing, then worse can happen as these situations can be unpredictable. It is possible for a thief to be stealing things anything small such as shoplifting candy to expensive things such as diamonds and then beat up or even kill the shop keeper in the same crime with or without weapons. Many cases where thieves have beaten up or killed shop keepers after stealing. No, stealing alone does not justify deadly force but theft may not be the only crime intended and it is possible for thieves to beat up or kill their victims. If the thief is high on drugs (such as a junky who steals to support his or her habit) then it is possible for the thief to be stealing things and then in a drug rage attack or even kill the store owner including with his own hands.

    Synonymously, if a homosexual is going to commit harassment, indecent exposure, stalking, assault and battery (such as if a homosexual grabs a man’s butt or groin against will), etc. then a man has a right to use reasonable force to end the abuse. There’s no need for a man to say no to a homosexual who is committing indecent exposure, etc. because there’s no need to say no to a crime the other had no right to as in the store owner eg.-stealing is a crime and no need to say no to thieves. If a defense lawyer in a gay bashing case wants to raise a crime the gay did such as harassment, indecent exposure, stalking, etc. before man reacted violently, then that must be regarded in deciding verdict. I would rather have a case where a jury decides if a man’s reaction to bashing or killing a homosexual is justified or excess vs. the man doesn’t do enough and the gay does something worse to him or the next man and you do not always know what the homosexual did to others before you. Again I would rather have too much done than not enough in that I would rather have a case where a jury decides if a man’s reaction to bashing or killing a homosexual is justified or excess vs. the man doesn’t do enough and the gay does something worse. Most gay bashings I have found are men reacting to crimes which the homosexual first did such as after a homosexual committed indecent exposure, assault & battery or other crime.

  36. Barry William Teske says

    Sounds like they really meant to say…
    The idea of a ‘spread the hate agenda’ that seeks to capture the nation and capture children’s curriculum and capture television and entertainment and laws and religion- that is an idea that is great and doable and needs to be unwittingly financed.

  37. Bill says

    @Nelson : here’s a copy of the gay agenda (it has been bouncing around the Internet for years):
