Whack-Job Flip Benham: Roy Moore Dated Teenagers Because Of Their “Purity”

Flip Benham

You must stop, drop and scroll down to listen to this spectacular crash and burn by right-wing, ultra-conservative, anti-LGBT activist Flip Benham.

Flip called in to speak with Alabama radio hosts Matt Murphy and Andrea Lindenberg on their “Matt & Aunie” show about the ongoing controversey with GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Benham attempts to defend Moore by saying when Moore returned from serving in Vietnam all the women he might have married were already married, so he started dating teenagers because “purity.”

I know, I know…

Via Right Wing Watch:

“I think that, number one, you need to understand, 40 years ago, what the Sitz im Leben was like in Alabama. Judge Roy Moore graduated from West Point and then went on into the service, served in Vietnam and then came back and was in law school. All of the ladies, or many of the ladies that he possibly could have married were not available then, they were already married, maybe, somewhere.

“So he looked in a different direction and always with the [permission of the] parents of younger ladies. He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight and he looked for that.”

Then the radio hosts point out a few facts Benham didn’t bother to know and it all goes off the rails.

Benham gets so defensive he won’t stop talking as Andrea says, “You can keep talking over me but no one will hear you.”

Seriously, you have to listen to this.

Anti-LGBT Flip Benham Holds A Rally Of One Ranting About Penises At Charlotte Pride

Flip Benham flips out

Anti-LGBT loon Flip Benham spent a good part of his weekend sitting in a parking lot near one of the stages at Charlotte Pride attempting to ruin the event for thousands and thousands of attendees.

The good news is: he failed.

Armed with a loudspeaker, Benham ranted and raved about penises and rectums drawing a few folks who came to stare at the ridiculous spectacle.

I do wonder why it’s always penises and rectums? The hateful anti-Pride folks seem to have no problem with lesbian’s vaginas, only the gays penises. Hmm…

In any case, the weekend was a huge success for Charlotte. As a matter of fact, it was a record crowd thanks in part to the state’s hateful HB2 law.

From Charlotte’s CBS affiliate:

Last year, 120,000 people made it to Uptown for the Pride celebration. This year, organizers estimated closer to 200,000 people went to the Festival and Parade, including more than 3,500 marchers in the Parade. “This is amazing energy. This just brings you up so much,” said David Pable, one of the marchers.

The Charlotte Pride Festival and Parade aren’t just about the attendance records for the LGBT community. Instead, it has become a safe haven for free expression.

“You see all the people out here enjoying Pride and celebrating who they are, and have a chance to truly be who they are,” said Michelle Money, who went to both the Parade and Festival.

Because of the growth of both events, they were declared extraordinary events for the first time ever, meaning a larger police presence was required. There was pushback by Charlotte Pride, but worries were eased after discussions with CMPD.
