Our tolerant and hypocritical friends to the left have struck again as a television show starring two twin brothers has been pulled after a Leftist website revealed them as anti-gay. As if this isn’t enough, the network has hired Ellen DeGeneres – a well-known openly gay television personality – to host a design competition show.
So much for tolerant of all beliefs.
HGTV had given the green light for David Benham and Jason Benham to host a show called Flip It Forward. The networks description for the program consistently read, “After a decade of flipping houses for profit, brothers David Benham and Jason Benham now help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford. In each episode, the guys help a deserving family find a fixer-upper and transform it into their forever home — with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way.”
That is until a leftist organization known as Right Wing Watch reported that the brothers were openly anti-gay and HGTV immediately pulled the plug. According to Right Wing Watch, David Benham held a prayer back in 2012 in front of the Democratic National Convention.
During that prayer he urged those of Christian faith to repent for tolerating, “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation,” as well as, “demonic ideologies tak[ing] our universities and our public school systems.” The group also claimed that his brother, Jason, joined him in the prayer protest as well.
Furthermore the group chastises Jason for leading protests outside of abortion clinics as well. despite it being his right under the First Amendment. On Tuesday, HGTV released an official statement after having learned the news saying that the network was, “currently in the process of reviewing all information about the Benhams and we will provide an update as soon as possible.”
As of yesterday however, HGTV announced that it was pulling the plug on the show entirely as they tweeted, “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”
The brothers have since stepped forward to offer their response saying, “We were saddened to hear HGTV’s decision. With all of the grotesque things that can be seen and heard on television today you would think there would be room for two twin brothers who are faithful to our families, committed to biblical principles, and dedicated professionals. If our faith costs us a television show then so be it.”
So, why is it that every other religion is to be tolerated and accepted for their beliefs besides Christianity? Muslims also strongly disagree with homosexuality – and even consider it a sin worthy of death – but why is the Left so eager to stick up for that specific religion?Because Christianity does not agree with Islam.
The hypocrisy of the Left is astounding and limitless as they seek to shun others belief to promote someone else’s that align with their own. Let us know what you think of this in a comment below.
