Liberty Counsel not only operates a right-wing law firm to fight against LGBTQ rights under the guise of religious freedom, it also has an internet radio program to facilitate the propagation of hate speech. Tuesday’s show featured religious right activists David and Jason Benham, according to Right Wing Watch, and focused on the issues of transgender rights and same-sex marriage.
David Benham indicated to listeners he had direct, personal knowledge of a supreme being’s homophobic as well as transphobic attitudes.
“What the Lord wants,” Benham said, “He wants us to have life and this whole deconstruction of gender, this whole redefinition of marriage, all of these things is a mask for Satan who is robbing and killing and destroying these people who desperately want life. They want to seek the love of a father, trying to find it in the arms of another man and they’ll never find it there.”
According to Benham, those who supported marriage equality and transgender rights are cursed with a “darkened heart” and a “depraved mind.”
