This is the one hundred and twenty-seventh installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of Flip Benham blaming the recent spate of violence in Charlotte on Transgenders, abortion providers, and Charlotte City Council ignoring the teachings of the Bible.
He sounds nice. Living with that much stress and anger over “the gays” cant be good for his heart or stress levels. I wonder if his middle name is out. Lastly is he one of the 70%+ some odd amount of homophobes who get aroused watching gay porn. Oh well i love her response at the end “your three minutes are up.”
Flip has two adults sons who make their Daddy proud. They are the equivalent of the main characters in Dumb and Dumber.
It is almost fun to see how the subterfuge of ‘biblical’ spewing begins to uncover the man’s hatred of others. Pity they limited him to three minutes because he was blowing his cork and would have ended with a Steve Anderson holler-fest if he had been allowed.
I’ve met Flip a few times. My magnum opus is her. http://theoconia.blogspot.com/2006/05/columbus-now-tells-operation-save.html
You wil also find other articles the, including short ones on the convicted kidnapper who worked with him and his relationship to Ken Blackwell.
Here’s funny story aboaut Flip. During the OSA takeover of downtown Columbus Flip held a fetal funeral with Fr. Frank Pavone. Now, Flip came to town hauling a donkey named Mercy behind him (seriously). A real live donkey.
Well the fetus who he held the funeral for was also named Mercy. (BTW, the fetus is believed to have been at that time over 20 years old and sent through the Vatican diplomatic pouch to Pavone or some other Catholic anti-abortion group, but that’s another story. So much for respect).
So we’re watching the funeral from the steps of City Hall, when Flip goes into his funeral oration. So,I yelled out,” The donkey’s dead? Who killed the donkey?” and everybody our side gets a good laugh. So, I saw Flip a day or so later at another one of his gatherings and I told him I was the one who did it. He told me just about lost his composure during he funeral and it was all he could do to control himself from laughing out loud while he’s praying over the fetus.
