Show hosted by Benham brothers cancelled

It is become increasingly easy to commit career suicide in America if one holds a negative opinion on homosexuality or gay marriage. Especially as gay individuals and gay rights groups grow more influential in this country and seek to eliminate those who have opposing views.

David and Jason Benham were set to host a show on HGTV which helped people afford homes.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The latest victims of this crusade are the Benham brothers, who lost the opportunity to host a show on the HGTV network after reports of "anti-gay" remarks made by one of the brothers were posted on the liberal leaning Right Wing Watch.

Pray for those who have strayed from the light of God.

The website alleged that David Benham was an anti-gay and anti-choice extremist, and posted various allegations of his behavior.

The brothers surprisingly are not upset with the network that cancelled the planned October series "Flip it Forward," instead feeling the network was bullied into cancelling the show.

David and his brother Jason criticized the gay agenda that pushed them out of the show. "I feel [HGTV] got bullied," said David. "There's an agenda that's out in America right now that demands silence, especially from men and women who profess Jesus Christ and hold to his standard."

The show the brothers would have hosted would help families purchase homes they otherwise could not afford.

"When the firestorm came in, we had an opportunity to speak with HG and the folks over there and explain to them who we are as people," said Jason. "We sell to all people of all kinds, and that we would be glad to take a homosexual couple onto our show."

Some suggest that HGTV made this move because they were scared about losing funds after watching the fallout from Paula Deen and the show "Duck Dynasty."

Peter Shankman, a branding and social media consultant, told "New Day" that the decision probably boiled down to money.

"This is about money," he said. "And if you are going to come out and say something that is against a big section of the population, love it or hate it, you're going to not have that right to give that talk, to get that show, to do whatever."
