HGTV Drops “Anti-Gay” Twins Because of “Public” Outcry

Homosexuals have a lot in common with the little dogs people like Paris Hilton hold in purses: they’re generally vain, generally high maintenance, and their bark is always far louder and more obnoxious than their bite. Case in point: a small minority of homosexuals pressured HGTV not to pick up the show Flip it Forward because its hosts, twin brothers Jason and David Benham, were discovered to be “anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-Muslim extremists.”

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen any shows on HGTV, but homosexuals are already very well represented there. Very well represented. Maybe they could have used a little diversity of opinion and style. Well, apparently homosexuals didn’t think so. They don’t like diversity very much, apparently. Or tolerance.

Let me tell you a little about the proposed show. It’s truly horrifying how much the show reflects the twisted values of these hateful extremists. (Sarcasm.) These twin brothers have made a living “flipping” houses—buying damaged or delapidated houses for low prices, fixing them up, and selling them for a profit. They’re very good at it. So, for the show, they wanted to use their flipping skills for charitable purposes:

The concept: After a decade of flipping houses for profit, the Benham guys would now help families buy the home they thought they could never afford — a small-scale, personal Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.


In each episode, the brothers would find a fixer-upper and “transform it into their [the low-income family’s] forever home—with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way,” said HGTV in the April announcement.

Sounds terrible! We can’t have any shows like that on HGTV. Anyway, the Benham brothers are Christians. They are against homosexual marriage, abortion, and Muslim terrorism. That doesn’t make them extremists. It might make them politically incorrect, but it’s ridiculous that they should lose the show—which would not have been affected to any extent by their personal views—because homosexuals can’t stand for anyone in the world to hold personal opinions different than theirs.

By the way, the Benham brothers responded to the news from HGTV with grace and humility:

The first and last thought on our minds as we begin and end each day is; have we shined Christ’s light today? Our faith is the fundamental calling in our lives, and the centerpiece of who we are. As Christians we are called to love our fellow man. Anyone who suggests that we hate homosexuals or people of other faiths is either misinformed or lying. Over the last decade, we’ve sold thousands of homes with the guiding principle of producing value and breathing life into each family that has crossed our path, and we do not, nor will we ever discriminate against people who do not share our views. . . . 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.

Yeah. They sound like real monsters.

  1. Hollywood is motivated by profits NOTHING else. IF there’s an audience for the show & money can be made it will be picked up & remain on TV if not it won’t. It’s just that simple.

    • No, it’s a double standard. Faggots (liberals) can speak their disgusting minds but if a Conservative or a Christian does it, there’s hell to pay.

      • Right Lawton…..those who DEMAND tolerance are the most INTOLERANT. Their way or the no way. Amazing.

        • As I read it, there was no ‘Public Outcry’.
          There were some nasty comments from some activists. The old Mob tactic of intimidation still works…’Nice little TV Network ya got here. Be a shame if sumpthin’ happened to it, ya know’. And HGTV folded like a paper fan.

        • Well, Bobbie, if it were faggots (like you) who were fired you would be screaming like a little sissy boy (again, like you). You would have your gay bathhouse buddies out in force protesting. And after the protest, you and your “boi’s” could go back to your bathhouse and celebrate with a circle jerk.

      • Right ON. Yes, it seems that conservative are at a disadvantage. In the END, no pun intended, ALL will work out. There will be no FAGS, LIARS, CHEATERS, PARASITES, TAKERS and this means, there will be no Congress or government. Also, I have a flash for all. There will be no black people in heaven. TRUE, fact. Read the Bible. There will be people who were black, but their skin will no longer be black. Remember the story of Cain and Able????? It’s all there. Can’t wait.

  2. And if my company were to fire muslims because they made people feel uncomfortable how long would it take for the lawsuit to be filed?
    Or would the dept of injustice beat the “aggrieved” parties to it?

  3. It is pretty sad when one group of people can have rights and not another just because they are Christians. This is so sick but the time is coming real shortly when these immoral loons will be begging for the Christians for help and it won’t be there. Why don’t these gay loons go to the middle east and try this crap?

    • are you talking about the end of times/jesus 2nd coming when you say ” the time is coming shortly” ?

      • Partly yes but in the next 2 -6 years there is going to be horrible times and there is an article that came out in the last few days that brings these times out. Research Sgt Maj Dan Page speaking to Missouri Oathkeepers. It is long but a must see and he has proof and will show it and tell it.

        • Nothing will compare to the disasters during the Tribulation. Our Nation will suffer for rejecting God for many years now and it may seem like the last days before the exit resurrection but it could be many more years. We may see our Nation go down from within or without but God will protect those who are following His way from His written Word — not religion.

        • How did gays impose on your life? Did they kidnap you? Are you capable of looking the other way? What “constitutional freedom” were you forced to give up? Have you seen a lawyer or filed a lawsuit against gays?

          • How did the Benham Brothers impose on gays like you and LABobE? Did they kidnap you? Why aren’t fags like you and LABobE not capable of looking the other way when a Christian or a non queer speaks their mind? What constitutional freedoms were you queers forced to give up when the Benham Brothers gave their honest opinions about traditional marriage? Listen, you and LABobE can have all of the dirty, stinky sex you want in your bedroom but don’t expect us to condone it.

      • no one is imposing their religion on gays or other groups, but Christian, atheist, Muslims or whoever have the same 1st amendment to express their beliefs as gay. It was a gay group that is trying to silence a view other than theirs. Sounds like gays want to be able to express their view but no one else can. You talk about looking the other way yet you refuse too also

  4. The broad brush of ‘public’ should be redefined. I’m part of the public, and concur 100% with the opinions of the two brothers.

    • Yes. The MSM use of the phrase, “the public” is similar to the results of the “public polls” quoted by the MSM. All fraudulent.

    • It’s time we start using the tactics of the pro-gay, pro-homosexual marriage, pro-muslim crowds and openly protest and threaten suit against agencies and/or businesses that give in to the pro-gay, pro-homosexual marriage, pro-muslim crowds. We who are straight and believe in judeo-christian principles have the the numbers and the means to fight back. The question is, do we have the balls?

        • You mean the family that held a position about sodomy and other deviant behaviors, discussed it honestly, did not try to force it on others? Who were then attacked by the sodomite community and their supporters since that family did not believe in or support the behavior of sodomy and other deviant behaviors? You mean those so-called “Duck bigots”? The real bigots come from the “Left” and are “Progressives” and are the most intolerant people in existence.

          • Tell me, LABodE, what do you have to offer better than Christianty? I am not talking about religion but what the Bible teaches. Not what you perceive about the Bible from your narrow mind of thinking.

          • How can anyone who accepts Darwin be anything but a racist?

            The diabolical consequence of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is that it feeds the vanity and hubris of men, making the top of the evolutionary ladder arbitrary and self-fulfilling according to one’s personal fancy. Darwin proudly shows off his bald pate as his emblem of the English gentleman being the pinnacle of evolution, while his contemporaries Karl Marx and the dark romanticists of Germany seized on their own ideal of evolution’s pinnacle. The trouble with such vanity is that it requires of placing “the other” in an inferior place on the evolutionary scale. The myth of Anglo-Saxon racial superiority of Progressives Theodore Roosevelt and Cabot Lodge gives rise to the notion of “the vanishing American”, the Progressivism of Woodrow Wilson gives rise to the measuring of skulls and IQ tests to demonstrate the superiority over blacks and eastern Europeans, Lenin advocates the proletariat must hasten the enslavement and extinction of the bourgeoisie, while Hitler believes non-Aryans must give way to Aryans.

            In contrast, the Founding vision fully accepts the Judeo-Christian concept placing all men on the same plane of unworthiness (if men were angels, no government would be necessary) and of ultimate eternal worth (all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights).

          • Agreed. Evolution is about survival of the fittest and eliminating the undesirables or defectives. Even Darwin book title apparently included something about the “favored race” (i.e. Europeans). Progressives believe in this and have worked to eliminate undesirables. One can see this in what “Progressives” have done to Black American.

          • Razor sharp, knock down punch of logic, Mr. Thompson! Where were you when Mitt Romney needed an eloquent, go-for-the-jugular speechwriter during his debates with the O-Coward-in-Chief? Thank God we have you to educate the Commonly Warped crowd. It is a horrific thought that the undereducated have a say on our elections, and that the sheepherders get the sheep to put their name on the ballot. These same people have commandeered cable channels with their nauseating immorality and force us to believe that their poor choices in life are normal. Keep up the fight, Mr. Thompson! I wish I had your firepower!

          • The problem is Mitt Romney and his crowd is not that they lack a desire to go-for-the-jugular. The problem is that they don’t direct it at Democrats, but at Tea Partiers and Republican officials that would advocate for them like Mr. Cruz. Which gives rise to serious questions as to whether they actually identify themselves with the American people’s oppressors, rather than with the Founders and with those today who still hold fast to Mr. Lincoln’s “electric cord” (see below).

          • I used to guest-teach a class on the non-contradictions between Creationism and Natural Selection. The Theory of Evolution couldn’t be used to address superiority of one race over another. A species, yes. Woodrow Wilson was a freak in my opinion. A perverted socialist.

          • If you read my comment again, I was talking about “DARWIN’s Theory of Evolution”. Macro evolution in itself does not contradict creationism (though I don’t think the evidence is on its side, and I even have a strong skepticism of Darwin’s theory of natural selection as a satisfactory explanation even for micro evolution (which no one denies). However, Darwinism always inevitably leads to atheism (and racism), which it was meant to by its originator. One of the biggest deceptions of Darwin was to equate his Theory of Evolution with evolution itself, and himself as its sole creator. The notion that Darwin started as this Christian creationist who tumbled onto the Theory of Evolution one day is seriously undermined by the historical fact that Darwin’s grandfather was a prominent advocate of evolution.

          • If you paid attention to what he said you would know better. Being opposed to a deviant behavior is not being phobic and pointing out the facts about racial issues is not being racist.

          • No he wasn’t – he was expressing his first amendment rights. You are the racist and homophobe and a non believer in the fist amendment.

          • Letting God into your life Bob would correct your heart and head problems, and probably extend your life here on earth, would certainly make it more pleasant.

          • OK…. LABobE… From the land of fruits and nuts it becomes apparent your perspective is tainted. Can you define for me your meaning of a “racist…or “homophobia”. Please quote for me the messages stated by conservatives such as Rush Limbaugh, or Herman Caine that validate your points. Or quote for me any conservative that has made such comments. BTW be specific. Much appreciated, thank you.

          • I didn’t read LL Uncool Bob’s comment but I can personally state that Rush wasn’t racist when he DJ’d here in Pittsburgh. He wasn’t a great DJ but he was a nice guy and certainly not a racist.

          • Not sure what point you are really trying to make, but if you are referring to the Larry Craig I think you are he made a choice to engage in deviant behavior and he paid the price for it. He was a hypocrite based upon what was reported.

        • Like it or not , this is America and as Americans we can chose what to believe and what to say. We can choose to believe that gay is not natural. BOb, Why are you always targeting Christians? THis is America so you can believe what you want Bob, but the fact is and stands that your anti-christian USA does not exist .

          • You can believe ANYTHING you want to believe!! You just cannot discriminate against people based upon those beliefs.

          • Seems to me that the Benham Brothers were discriminated against by sissy boi’s like you and your GayMafia, moron. They have a right to their opinions just as your Hershey Highway buddies do, Bobbie.

          • Isn’t that exactly what the “gay” community (if such, in fact, exists) is doing to the rest of society? Most folks would be happy to let these people do “their thing” in the privacy of their homes. What they primarily object to is having homosexuality rammed down their throats at every turn – like Christians having their businesses, their families and their children attacked by organized “gay” groups (sorry, there’s nothing “gay” about it) trying to force their llifestyle on everyone else – even to the extent of aggressively recruiting kids via the public schools, taking over the Scouts, and closing down businesses who refuse to cater to them for reasons of personal faith. Discrimination is discrimination, and too often those who complain that they are discriminated against are the very ones who are aggresively pushing their views upon everyone else.

          • Well they are only trying to catch up the Dems. The biggest one is you lord and master Obama.

          • There are gay people in the conservative movement. They are welcome. I don’t want to be bothered about somebody’s sexuality. Keep it to yourself. Hetero as well as homo. It isn’t our problem. Leave it at home.

          • That may or may not be true, but it’s not the issue here. The issue is, on the face of it, discrimination, and it’s a problem in many areas of society today – especially with special interest groups crying “discrimination” at every turn, then using the courts or whatever it takes to discriminate against others by forcing compliance with THEIR agendas.

            Homosexuals, like everyone else, need to keep their private conduct private and not ram it down the throats of people they KNOW will disapprove by making laws to punish them for their own beliefs. Putting a photo shop out of business because the owner won’t photograph a gay “wedding,” even though the owner referred the gays in question to other photographers who WOULD do the job, is pure discrimination of the worst kind, akin to the old KKK race-based attacks on black churches and homes, and on whites who openly sympathized with the truly oppressed blacks.

            In fact, It’s more than a discrimination issue – it’s a domination and control issue. Punishing people for their beliefs is NOT acceptable, no matter who the “offended” party may be. People’s rights and beliefs are their own, and must be left at that UNLESS those beliefs infringe on the rights and beliefs of others.

          • Why are you discriminating? If you want others to keep their beliefs to themselves, then you must do the same. Otherwise, you’re just another hypocrite.

          • Are you not discriminating again conservatives? Yes. This country was founded on Christian principles and the belief that everyone can worship freely. Blessed is the nation who acknowledges God.

          • Amen! And it’s time for our nation to turn back to God as we’ve gone way too far away from Him.

          • People discriminate based upon people’s behavior all the time. The sodomite community works hard to present their behavior as if it was a gender, ethnicity or race in order to avoid responsibility for the behavior they have chosen. In the 1970s the excuse for bad behavior was “The Devil made me do it” and then it became I was born that way.

          • So how was the duck man discriminating against homos by saying that he follows Gods word?
            What exactly did he make you do any differently than you still do?
            YOU are the ones that want to force people to change and HATE.

          • Really? So why were they let go? It’s a proven fact that help the poor. In fact the show was about taking fixer-uppers and transforming them (low income families) forever homes. No in today’s American you can’t think, Feel or express your feelings in anyway if they do not concede with the gay agenda.

          • Free speech is limited. Eg.,You can’t publicly accuse anyone on this site or any other without consequences against you.

        • @labobe:disqus bet yu can’t wait for the season premire of the upcoming season of DUck DYnasty which is gonna air in July according to A&E

        • Are you back again?????? What do you do all day – blog? Are you a paid obama zombie? I don’t believe you were ever a Republican…..

        • So, you rear your ugly moron head on yet another conservative blog. All you gutless, Godless, homo liberals just get on these sites to rile us. Go back to the bath houses and look up some of Ovomit’s old buddies!

        • Bingo, nobody will stand up out of fear. Fear of losing votes, being labeled, & now the fear of losing your job, especially in the military. Standing up for your beliefs is the quickest way to kiss your commission & career good-bye. We’ve allowed a small # of individuals to dictate what can be said & or even thought. Not only does the “gay community” push the we’re normal credo but they demand and get special treatment.

          • Well said, indeed! I only wish I had some idea of how we–the mainstream–could try to defend ourselves without being destroyed in the process (as you suggest vis-a-vis the military, etc.).

          • I am not afraid and often express my opinion on these and other blogs. Try it – you will like it. IF gays and Mudslimes don’t like it – too bad!!

          • There are a lot of people who do NOT roll over as you are describing ? Job or no job? Sounds like you are convinced ? If so you might as well roll over and quit talking?

            Take back your powers and demand accountability DC MAY 16 its a start.

          • All this despite the fact the gay community comprises less than 2% of the population. 2% of the population but almost 100% of the publicity.

          • Tell that to the people that died in those wars to let wooses like you have freedom. You are a COWARD!

          • I’ve fought in 2 wars thank you, I pulled a buddy out of a hummer that probably looked like you. I left part of my right arm, shoulder, ear & a chunk out of the left side of my skull there you scum bag. Coward, hardly you piece of uneducated garbage, wooses- is that even a word or just the rotten thigh cheese your significant other eats from your thighs you fat pig.

          • Sounds like you have a major problem. You need to read first before you show your true colors. We need to stand up like you did for us. I am willing to loose money, a job , because that can be replaced. Your arm can not be replaced. So what I am saying, our sacrifice will never measure up to yours. You did your duty, now it is our time ,for us to do whatever we can, to keep our Republic under God.

          • PS, I am not a homosexual, and believe that those twins should not be treated for what they believe in.

          • My only problem is watching a country that my siblings & I fought for, my father did 2 tours in Nam, my G-PA was in II all across Europe, my uncle was shot 4 times on Tarawa & the list goes on. Coward is not a word in my vocabulary, so when I open my email and I see you’re a COWARD, it offends me. I’m lucky, I’ll never be 100%, but I have my family, especially my boys that make it all worth while. While people chastise me & wish my fellow soldiers and myself death, I simply reply that, “it’s my job” many become offended & ask why I’d do it. My reply is,” so that God willing your children will never know the horror of war.”

          • I thank God, everyday for our men and woman in uniform. My family was also in the military and police force. I am sickened the way our gov’t treats our Veterans. The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted, it belongs to the brave. Reagan. Thank you!

          • Fritz! Remember, it don’t mean a thing! Enlisted are always at the tip of the sword. I am sorry for your personal losses. Thank you for saving the other person. It is unrealistic to expect most Americans to understand the concept of America. The first thing that you learn in Boot Camp is to develop a thick skin. It really worried me when I saw the collection that walked in with me. Many were gone when we graduated. 2 years service would be good for most people. We would have few socialists after military service. Your thoughts?

          • I agree totally. Kids are brainwashed by the press, school, TV & movies. There fed so many lies that it eventually makes them believe that the government is working for them. If you’re against anything that the gov. has deemed important, you’re a racist, Antisemitic, homophobic or hater of the Democrats. They don’t realize that freedom has a cost, millions that died for us. Many countries have a mandatory service of 1 or 2 years. Maybe they’d learn what the truth is about the (US). In the Army everybody works for their their buddies, race color and creed.don’t matter. I’ve never said, ( man down, oops he’s black-never mind) I’d do anything for my men, black, white, yellow polka-dot, They were my friends, I loved them like family. I miss those guys. I’m fine, 2 years of my life in surgery & rehab, boring. I’ve saved folks lives & they’ve saved mine. I miss 1 of my best friends I hope it was painless, everyday I think about him

          • thank you for your service. I took seven bullets during the Vietnam War and came home to kids spitting on soldiers at the airports. The country I remember is in danger of perishing and I don’t recognize what it has become. Immediate gratification and me first has become the order of the day. We are headed for another civil war if things don’t change. I really do not believe the people who love this country are going to take much more before something ignites the chaos. Which is exactly what the tyrants in the Obama administration are counting on to take over completely. All I can say is we better win or we will all be dead or in FEMA camps for re-education. MOLON LABE.

          • No, thank you for your bravery, service & comment. It’s scarey, the last few generations have been totally brainwashed & deceived. The teachers teach our children to be anti-religious, anti Constitution & anti-government (only the Republicans). The government will tell them how to think & have their hands out for welfare, WIC, food stamps etc. The 1st few years I didn’t pay for drinks, food or women. I must have been “thanked” a million times. Then it turned, I was now part of an illegal war, baby killing & being told you’re a POS. Folks told me to die & all Marines should be killed & if they have a family they also will be killed. That comment was nuts & the leader was saying it so I stopped & jacked him up. I politely told them that if I see them again anywhere near my wife & kids pulling this crap I’ll slice your girlfriend from twat to tit. Left-wing morons. We are just the new Rome

          • Carrie who are you calling a coward? NukeWaste. He is right if he is being forced to push people through if they are not capable of performing the duties required. You have not walked in that man’s shows. My granddaughter is in the National Guard, as tough as any man, and a Expert Marksman. She earned being there. Many do not. Can you understand that?

          • Boy, you like to bitch. If you read, I was talking about, not speaking up because you might loose your job. Fritz now understands that it was made to people that are civilians. READ!

          • When I was in the Navy I refused to go along with the ‘Put females everywhere and cover for those who don’t belong.’ I documented every incompetent squid sent my way, male or female. None of my evals concerning males were ever questioned. My evaluations for females were questioned all the time. Once when I wrote one up for being late three days in a row, (Brig time for a male!) I was asked if we weren’t better off when she wasn’t there. My response was to suggest kicking her out and solving her problem for her and us. I was told tat if I wanted a good billet and quicker advancement I had to go easy on the girls. That meant lying on all their paperwork. Once I was given a girl so small that I could pick her up even with my messed up back. She was checked off for firefighting. She never even touched a hose. If she was ever put out at sea she would be a very bad hazard. Very nice kid but she would get thrown about by the wind. I was happy to rejoin the World.

          • Pretty disgusting If you ask me. We have lost all common sense for political correctness. Fools keep folding and instead of standing firm. Where are the men is this world?????

      • And I have the balls to tell you that you sound like an angry child who screams when he doesn’t get his way on every social issue in the country. Go to your room and take your hatred with you, child.

        • Its not Americans who have the hatred – its the GAYS and MUSLIMS toward Americans!! And apparently you also.

          • Are you saying that most of the people commenting on this site are Muslims? Are you a Muslim?

          • Muslims do NOT want their sons and daughters to marry anyone but a Muslim – and then do NOT want their children following Americans values even though they live here. Note that the Sultan of Brunai wants his people to follow Sharia law but owns the Beverly Hills and other hotels where liquor are served, where women can talk to men, do NOT wear burkas – a bit hypocritical isn’t it? You don’t know enough about Muslims to even comment – wake up!

        • That is exactly the problem. It might interest you to know that 5000 human sheep were controlled by less than 100 soldiers with less than 100 rounds each. All the Jews had to do to beat Hitler was walk. They could have beaten the soldiers to death after they ran out of bullets. Why didn’t they do this? They came in two flavors. The upper middle class that couldn’t believe this was happening to them (they wouldn’t leave without their piano!) and the poorest who were used to being treated like this. The majority of Middle Class Jews Ran before they were locked down. Work out those averages. Gay advocates are doing the same thing. A few of them can force change because most people will not care. They don’t realize that if they, their friends, and clients banded together and counter-sued this would end quickly. It might any way after the FOTUS leaves. No Hillary either if we want to keep our country.

          • You sir are absolutely correct and an excellent summation/synopsis. Please go to the site, you will not be dissapointed. Lots of THINKING material there on similar thought processes and issues of the day. Good on Ya !

      • I think Americans in the majority HAVE lost their way… and it starts at the churches… God’s call for them to “Come Out Of Babylon” has in the main BEEN IGNORED by such churches who practice the major differences with what Jesus taught, and kept the main insulting and infidel practices that OFFEND GOD. Here lies the basis of why many people avoid churches, as they can FEEL, if not EXPRESS their views that such churches are the HYPOCRITES and ANTI-CHRIST mentioned in REVELATIONS! One does not have to be carrying banners sayin “I HATE GOD” to be part of the churches, but their teachings AVOID all mention of KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS as Jesus practiced and taught… and He always taught only HIS FATHER THE CREATOR’S rules – the most basic concept of showing respect and fidelity to God, and respect and care for other humans. (See Gen-2, Ex 20, Matt 5 v7 onwards to find out… OR also read FaceBook’s “Kamaut Longbabilon” or “Come Out Of Babylon My People” to get filled in… warning: it is REBUKIVE of sin and infidelity to God, so if you cannot stand to have your “church” feel threatened by the TRUTH, then decline the offer.) – AND: The rise of sin is supported by those infidels who do not REBUKE SIN as they were taught to do… WHY? greed for money to keep flowing — out of fear the congregations will leave? Jesus NEVER FEARED such straight talk!

      • Please NO. Now is no time to stoop to their level. Persecution is what grows the cause. Jesus didn’t fight back. He laid his life down. Now I’m not saying we should laid down and be carpets to be walked all over. We SHOULD be using our God given freedoms and rights in this country to fight back. But we must fight with love and respect. These twins model beautifully how we should all behave. So did Martin Luther King Jr. Now is not the time to behave like Malcome X.

    • I agree . But we can simply not participate or support many companies and we will have a huge impact financially. We need to start thinking in terms of our power and we do have massive power, especially financially and by simply not participating with say a certain channel as you point out ? There are many companies that we can simply boycott financially and they will get the message big time. We can start a list right here or at my site ? I posted a short one the other day. This is something that will have an affect and we CAN do it easily with almost no effort at all .

    • ALL CHRISTIANS, JEWS and even true MUSLIMS should avoid SUPPORTING ANY THING HOMOSEXUAL or other crimes against humanity like ABORTION etc…. As Jesus taught us never to help sin, BUT REBUKE SIN. It is written very often in scriptures, OLD or NEW TESTAMENT, that God will NOT LISTEN to those who do not believe HIM, and those who also DO NOT OBEY HIS PRIMARY LAWS in the WAY that Jesus (Y’sua in familiar Hebrew) taught us. If we dont follow that principle, God nor Jesus DOES NOT LISTEN TO ANY PRAYERS EITHER, unless repenting and doing what IS RIGHT! – And, even worse will happen to priests and pastors who mislead their congregations to ignore God’s rules. Such people will be LEFT BEHIND to all the evils that happen on this Earth, exposed to every calamity and disease and crime possible… THAT IS HELL before the grave becomes it. YOU HAVE A CHOICE, but churches in the main cannot save you. They have ALREADY SIGNED ON and RECEIVED THE “MARK OF THE BEAST”! Read Facebook’s “Kamaut Longbabilon” or “Come out of babylon my people” to be further made aware…

  5. LOL,,, I’d always just paged bye HGTV,,,thought it was Home/Garden or some such,,, I guess IS the FRUIT type…. Now I can page bye faster

  6. If a network doesn’t want to be associated with homophobic bigots (or anyone else) they have the right not to be. You people should learn more about the free enterprise system & supply & demand before you condemn it.


  8. All the God hating homo loving liberals are very intolerent of other peoples belief. Talk about hypocrisy.

  9. “anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-Muslim extremists.”
    Is it even possible to be “pro-gay and pro-muslim” at the same time?
    I am tired of this “squeaky wheel gets the grease” society. Gays, at best make up about 2% of the US population. Christians make up more than 80%.
    Time to boycott HGTV, and their sponsors like Home Depot and Lowes. Time to boycott, too. We helped save Duck Dynasty, let’s save the Benham Boys, and help them help to get people into homes they can afford. Boycott any company that gives into the gay agenda. Gays are filled with hate for God fearing people. The liberals support the hate filled gay agenda.
    Now about abortion, liberals hate children, that’s why they have publicly murdered some 58 million American children since Roe v. Wade.
    But even that SCOTUS gave an out to their Roe v. Wade decision. They said the Congress could pass a life begins at conception (LBAC) and that would nullify Roe. Liberals have been hard at work ever since to make sure no Congress would even consider a LBAC bill let alone pass it.

    • The BIG difference is the Tiny 2% is very active for their evil cause, while We the SHEEPle, The Vast Majority, REMAIN Sound Asleep and are of no SERIOUS EFFECT against OUR Enemies within. We’ll pay a big price for our Passive Tolerance of every Form of evil.
      Today’s Weak-Kneed, Panty-Waist Pastors & Preachers don’t help either. They fear offending some Pew-Warmer, but have no concern whatsoever, that they might offend Yahweh / God….

    • Save the Benham Boys ?
      Their proposal for a show was only a proposal. They have been successful without our help, and can continue to be successful with their good works without “our” involvement and without a TV show.

  10. Anybody remember when People acted like these two brothers? Or, has been to long ago and, not worth the effort? Lets sincerely hope some other cable channel picks them up. Of course they may stink but, we’ll never know until we see them.

    • i don’t watch Tv much i prefer reading books. Right Now i am almost done finishing a Sir WAlter Scott book

  11. I’m sick of the gaystspo, get a life you jerks. Do what you do in private. Heterosexuals aren’t raining on you (rainbow) parade. But you sure have your noses up everybody elses butt. Are you worried you’re not getting enough attention I see a lot of gay stuff on TV. You’re overly represented.

    • Gays were sent to concentration camps in WWII. Gay marriages are now accepted by the vast majority of Americans.

      • Gays were sent to concentration camps in WWII by gays. It traced back to a 19th Century quarrel between two views of German homosexuality–one side argued that homosexuals were females that found themselves born in male bodies, while the other harked back to the ancient Spartan model of older soldiers having sexual union with boys to bond them together for hoplitic warfare. The extreme machismo of the Nazis led them to opt for the latter model and to persecute the former. It is thoroughly documented at

        “We run our memory back over the pages of history for about eighty-two years and we discover that we were then a very small people in point of numbers, vastly inferior to what we are now, with a vastly less extent of country,—with vastly less of everything we deem desirable among men,—we look upon the change as exceedingly advantageous to us and to our posterity, and we fix upon something that happened away back, as in some way or other being connected with this rise of prosperity

        We find a race of men living in that day whom we claim as our fathers and grandfathers; they were iron men, they fought for the principle that they were contending for; and we understood that by what they then did it has followed that the degree of prosperity that we now enjoy has come to us…

        “We have besides these men—descended by blood from our ancestors—among us perhaps half our people who are not descendants at all of these men, they are men who have come from Europe—German, Irish, French and Scandinavian—men that have come from Europe themselves, or whose ancestors have come hither and settled here, finding themselves our equals in all things. If they look back through this history to trace their connection with those days by blood, they find they have none, they cannot carry themselves back into that glorious epoch and make themselves feel that they are part of us, but when they look through that old Declaration of Independence they find that those old men say that

        ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal’

        and then they feel that that moral sentiment taught in that day evidences their relation to those men, that it is the father of all moral principle in them, and that they have a right to claim it as though they were blood of the blood, and flesh of the flesh of the men who wrote that Declaration…

        …And so they are.

        That is the electric cord in that Declaration that links the hearts of patriotic and liberty-loving men together, that will link those patriotic hearts as long as the love of freedom exists in the minds of men throughout the world…”

        If the word “American” is to be defined as outlined by Abraham Lincoln above, then ZERO Americans will ever regard an individual as a cosmic accident, a commodity having no inherent value outside of being used and discarded at one’s pleasure. This is equally true whether slavery or the sexual revolution is the issue. The divide is between American and non-American, just as surely as it was between Loyalist Tory and Patriotic Whig, between Union and Confederate, and between the heirs of the Founders battling the heirs of the French Revolution on the beaches of Normandy and Inchon and many other 20th Century battlefields.

      • That doesn’t make gay marriage right. What God says in His written Word is what is right and most Americans have no idea what the Bible says and that is why we are suffering so much in our country. As an unbeliever you will never understand.

        1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
        Geneses 19:5-8, Lev 18:22-23, Lev 20:13, 1Tim 1:9-10, & Romans 1:26-27, Jude 7

  12. To me a persons sex life should be personal,yet the gay’s are the ones talking about it. If they do not want to be bashed zip the lips.

  13. Now we cannot say anything against Muslim TERRORISTS? Are they inferring that ALL Muslims are terrorists? Even if a person is only concerned with RADICAL, VIOLENT Islam??? HMMMM….

  14. Well, how many “outcried” against such a worthwhile and noble depiction of spreading the wealth around? Those are the ones who might wish they had thought of doing something to help a family in need instead of bit*hing about a couple of brothers who actually were doing something to help other. In what I have seen of the fair treatment of ordinary unagendaded young men, there must have been millions of the gay persuasion gathering up pitchforks and lighting torches to force them out of their rather noble television show. Run, Twins, run!…Oh, look there are only 5 of them protesting you, but they look really fierce.

  15. HDTV who? I see it is on my programs available. Never watched; never will now, plus will petition to have it dropped from cable provider.

    • liberals are worse than Sir RIchard Varney in Sir Walter Scott’s Kenilworth. Kenilworth is one of the waverly novels.

  16. Some of the vile things that radical gay activists say about Christians, our children or anyone who remotely disagrees with them do not sound very tolerant or polite. Also Islam does not permit gays to live – but funny no outcry if they have a TV show.

  17. It pretty ironic when minority groups can slam others with different beliefs, race,sex, marriage, ect… and get away with it. But when the majority, or larger group of People with different beliefs, race, religion, and ideologies say it they get slammed, including destroyed for doing the same thing that minority groups say and do! Pretty pathetic.

  18. I am extremely disappointed with HGTV for removing a show for this reason. Why should one group of people be able to govern what the rest of us can enjoy? I for one, though I am certainly not a racist, have wondered why they have an inordinate number of mixed race couples on their shows. It seems, along with this, to be going overboard to seem non-discriminatory, while in the process they are discriminating against heterosexuals. They are carrying things too far, and they will destroy their own shows in the process.

  19. I believe in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, I believe life begins at conception, I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and that homosexuality is a an abomination in eyes of the Lord! And one thing for sure, I dislike anything to do with muslims. So they can stick their rainbow flags and same sex lifestyles and planned parent murderous ways along with their raghead attitudes wear the sun don’t shine. And if this offend someone, too damn bad. HGTV is a not viewed in my household.
    That’s this Marines viewpoint, what’s yours?

    • I agree whole heartedly and will not watch HGTV. Maybe I’ll watch one episode so I’ll know who’s product to boycott.

  20. If you don’t agree with them, then don’t watch them. I don’t agree with them, so I just won’t watch. I am a conservative, but I don’t hate gays. It is not for me to judge.

  21. Days of Sodom and Gomorrha are upon us. Terrible direction the world is going. You can do anything you want without consequences, I don’t think so Tim. It is against life. Guys who stand up for their morals are beat down for no good reason. They are right!!! The gay supporters are wrong!

  22. The LGBT preaches tolerance but they are not tolerant of others views ,it is disgusting what they do to try and silence those they oppose , they tried with the Robertson`s of Duck Dynasty .
    UPTV should pick up these brothers show .

  23. Intolerance is all it is. Gays are the most intolerant group of people that there is. The perverted lifestyle that God destroyed time and again.

  24. BS, the gay gestapo is the “public outcry” nothing to do with the folks who watch the show. Notice how lately more and more of their shows feature gays? We have elected to drop their programs from our viewing, because they have gone to the gay side……..

    • that is an on going effort to make it look normalized and is particularly aimed at the younger crowd

  25. This is what it comes down to: the people demanding the most tolerance from the rest of us show no tolerance whatsoever on their side of the spectrum. They threaten our livelihoods, our children, our schools, our very religion, and even those of us who have supported their gains in the past are likely to finally say “That’s it, you have gone too far”. People have died so that we have free speech and rights of expression; these LGBT seem to think they can be the censors of our thoughts, speech and behavior. They will be in for a rude awakening if they stay this course.

  26. Never watched HGTV before and sure will not in the future not that it really matters to them. If this articled is true it is very clear who the prejudiced one really is.

  27. What a shame that those who preach tolerance refuse to be tolerable.
    Those who wish to be included reject inclusion. Homosexuals demand respect
    but respond with disdain. Sort of like Reid and Pelosi and Schumer and Boxer
    and Feinstein and lee and Cummings and Sharpton and scads of others.

    • Can’t be a hypocrite and tolerant at the same time – it hurts too much to twist yourself up like that.

  28. Extremists? NO! They are simply contemporary Americans expressing personal views, the same views that predominate in contemporary mainstream America. Of course the media won’t have any of that! If you embrace the values that built OUR Great Republic and – much worse – you stand firmly upon OUR God-given rights and express faith in Christian morals and teachings then you are a revolutionary! You are a threat to that cornerstone of socialism: the destruction of individual morals and self-reliance. Oh, these sadly misnamed ‘liberals’ will have none of that!

    • Everybody raise your Sword and fight like a fuckin man when the battle starts !!! Get Ready for WWIII!!!!!!

  29. I just sent this message to HGTV — feel free to do the same!

    “Dear HGTV

    After learning of your canceling the Benham Brothers “Flip if Forward” due to your intolerance against those holding to traditional Christian views our family has decided that we not watch or support your channel as we have over the past 3 years.

    There is a variety of obvious and different religious lifestyles present on your network. I find it ironic that you oppose intolerance but are intolerant to those who may hold to traditional Christian values (e.g. Property Virgins, House Hunters, all have clientele that are outside traditional or mainstream values). That is a form of hypocrisy I cannot support and do no hesitate to inform those who are part of the blogging community or social media network that I reside in daily.”

    • I hope more people will do the same. There are always counter complaints. If enough people say they want them back perhaps HGTV will listen.

    • Thanks for sharing your letter…I hope you don’t mind that I modified it slightly and sent it to HGTV! Isn’t it amazing how intolerant and discriminatory some people can be against folks they perceive may be intolerant and discriminatory! They ARE what they fear other people might be!!!

  30. Public Outcry??? Gays make up 3% of the population. If I were the executives at HGTV I’d be more worried about the remaining 97%. HGTV is offending me in their allegiance against the christian belief. I’m find them offensive because they are denying me as a christian my rights. I’ll be no longer viewing anything on that station nor will I ever purchase any product sold by their sponsors.

  31. I read the article you linked to and this seems to do more with a discriminating remark about gays they made on the radio than with the brothers religious orientation or views on abortion. You cant blame HGTV for dropping them after what they said. They are a company that is trying to protect its image. It would be far worse for them if they didnt drop the show.

  32. Posters, why so surprised? The gaystapo controls the media (TV, Radio, Hollywood, News print). That is all these knuckle-dragging-anti christian-left wing-liberal-Neanderthals have. The ultimate dream….gather all this trash and export them to Islamic countries…problem solved.

  33. What “public” cried out? The fringe Sexually Aberrant Deviants, and not most of them, just the flaming radicals? I don’t personally know anyone who complained to HGTV. Since they did not consult with me, I have consulted with Lowe’s with whom I have spent tens of thousands of dollars over the past several years to stop advertising and sponsoring programming on HGTV. Then I talked to Charter to have HGTV dropped.

  34. Sodomites, like any one who engages in deviant behaviors, generally never want to face the facts about their behavior or to have to acknowledge the deviant nature of their behavior. They know the behavior is abnormal and wrong but don’t want to have to acknowledge or face the real facts.

  35. This is sickening! It seems the groups that want acceptance for their sinful ways are in control. Like a secret police. They go digging through personal lives and if they don’t measure up to their way of thinking…well, OUT. Now, I didn’t like what Sterling said to his “assistant,” about don’t bring blacks to the game, but to me, that’s private conversation. I love Magic Johnson, but he has AIDS, and shouldn’t be sleeping with her for sure. I lived around many gays in Laguna Beach and they were not rude. There were the good ones, and the bad, just as the rest of us, but no one HAD to divert from their religion and accept their “ways.” I truly hope people come to their senses, but it isn’t look good from my point of view. I’m glad I learned about God, and such in the 40’s and 50’s and my parents from The Greatest Generation. I do not know of one person in the northern part of the family and the southern who put down things such as homosexuals or gays, we just never mentioned it, in fact, I had a hard time believing it when in high school. I truly believe anyone can be a homosexual if they wish. If men were extremely cruel to me and a woman was kind, and I didn’t have my values, I would most probably think I should be married to her. GEEZ…And, my black woman friend says they do not like it when white women take over their men.

  36. It is time that we, the people stand up and tell the baby killers, the homosexual perverts, and those murderous Muslims in America to blow it out their keister! My wife, and I are tired of these people threatening those who don’t agree with them.

    • I think that it won’t come to that. Something in the Bible about “Vengeance is Mine”, says The Lord. To borrow from a couple of colloquialisms: God will call these perverts on the carpet, and they will have their hats (or heads) handed to them.

  37. HGTV and FOOD NETWORK are both owned by DIY NETWORK. DIY IS A OVER GAY COMPANY. ON Food network’s foood court wars they puropsely showed the viewers that the winers of food cort wars were lesbian.

  38. I am curious. how many outcries were there? 1 ?10? 50? I’d like to outcry with my opinion. Everyone has an opinion. What if I said get Ellen off TV because she is gay. How much of an outcry is necessary? I have noticed majority rules doesn’t. A few people tend to get the rule. Not fair. I don’t care if Ellen is on TV, some people enjoy her show. great. I’d like to see these boys on their show, too. Talk about biased.

  39. The homosexual (not PC gay) “AGENDA” is the worst disease infecting and destroying the morals and family values of the USA and the world.
    Homosexuals WERE NOT BORN THAT WAY, they CHOOSE their UNNATURAL UNHEALTHY lifestyle, so, homosexuality does not qualify as a civil rights discrimination issue.
    Homosexuals had equal rights, now they have special rights and want more. Every special right awarded to homosexuals infringes on our rights.
    Homosexuality will NEVER be natural, healthy (mentally or physically), normal, accepted, or OK!
    God loves everyone, as we all should, including homosexuals. God hates all sin, as we all should, including homosexuality and He says it is an abomination.

  40. It wasn’t a public outcry! it was a bunch of intolerant, insecure homosexuals that focused on the brother’s private life. I don’t see where they were proselytizing or protesting against Homosexuals. Their show just built things! Intolerance is the Homosexual agenda, we are not supposed to know what they do in private, but they sure go after everybody else private life’s. This kind of stuff reflects the insecurity of homosexual with their life style. They must not believe it’s OK either! So, they deflect their insecurity to others for the sake of revenge or affirmation. HGTV is just another company that doesn’t believe in freedom of speech anywhere.

  41. Where is the feeling that we should be tolerate of others. This just seems to go one way ” be for gays or your dead “

    • You have it all wrong. As a fellow citizen with these fascists, it is up to you to die so that they don’t have to retroactively “abort” you. It is “You” that is the “evolutionary” aberration .

    • I don’t care if someone is gay I just don’t want to be forced into everything being all about them and what they want and their world view. If you don’t like a show just don’t watch it . Don’t take it away from others.

  42. Never underestimate the danger of little weasel fascists. Once they receive their state issued “Mauser” their chest will expand, head will grow and then the little buggers become a force to be reckoned with.

  43. The sad thing is even if you quit watching these show they will still get their money because when you purchase cable or satilite tv you don’t get to pick and choose what you buy. Until they change the rules (the GOVERNMENT) you still can’t do a damn thing about it. The only other option is to cancel your cable and satilite tv. Then they all lose.

    • Actually they also get advertising dollar and if its not drop a good audience why pay to advertise on it. Also they have to negotiate with the cable networks and low audience numbers will hurt them or get then dropped

  44. I say HGTV should have they show play for one season and see what the numbers are after season 1 ends

    • Are you kidding !? They cannot allow anyone they disagree with to be
      The LBGT mantra is now “REMEMBER the DUCK DYNASTY!!!”

  45. What is it with our society when they cave in to these demonic homosexuals who are filled with hate for anyone who opposes their sick, abnormal, unnatural, defiant, rebellious, arrogant attacks against Christianity which essentially is attacking Almighty God who He Himself condemns their perversion in the strongest terms possible. These hypocritical loons want America to accept their diseased activity but refuse to be tolerant of opposing views. It infuriates me these sicko’s get away with so much garbage. Decent people outnumber them by multitudes and yet, people run in fear of them. This madness has got to stop.

    • Jesus can kiss my hairy biblical transport. He does not merit my respect, to say nothing of my worship.

      • Anyone who blasphemes against the Son of God in the manner you just wrote, should tremble in your shoes. Don’t think He didn’t see your words and He doesn’t forget. You will find out the hard way when your spirit stands before His throne for judgment when you leave life. Wow! Truly scary to think about.

        • I hope you realize that threatening a non Christian with hell is like threatening an adult that Santa won’t bring them any Xmas presents

          • No Bob, it is NOT like that, just because you say it is. Threatening a non-Christian with hell is a little bit like giving factual HIV education to someone who does not believe “what the white man says about HIV transmission”. Their non-belief in it does not make it not true. Why do I use that example? In real life, my sister found out the catastrophic results of following the wrong beliefs: She had unprotected sex with someone who she knew was HIV+. Because she said she did not believe the white man’s BS about how HIV is transmitted. Ten years later, she was sadly, unnecessarily, dead – due to following her (dis)beliefs. You can choose not to believe in God, Bob. But that does not make God go away. Nor will that be a valid excuse come Judgment Day.

          • There is one little difference. We have proof of the HIV virus & there’s no more proof of your god then their is of a thousand others.

          • I threaten no one other than to warn them. When one blasphemes against the one who went to the cross and paid a horrific price as a sacrificial lamb and took all the sins of the world upon Himself and then vilifies him, truly a great danger for his soul. No threat, just facts.

      • You and your little buddy, Bobbie, will be crying your eyes out on Judgement Day. I’d love to witness it.

      • Jesus died for your reprobate and hateful self. He loves you even though you hate Him.
        It’s not difficult to see who is the unrighteousness one.

        • No, he didn’t. He could have forgiven us all–remember that (if you believe that crapola) he knowingly made us imperfect at the factory, and the manufacturer of a defective product has a duty to cure–on his own motion, without resort to the silly theatrics.

          And who is he saving us from? Himself. If he wasn’t a sick, vindictive being, that wouldn’t be necessary at all.

          • And precisely what good will that do? You might as well urinate on a cold spark plug for me.

          • Because where there is life, there is still hope. You might want to read “the case for Christ” by the lawyer, and former hard core atheist, Lee Strobel.

  46. Homosexuals, baby murders, and muslims are anything but diverse, and they cannot tolerate any other opinions than theirs because they are simply WRONG and they cannot tolerate the truth comming out about them or just what kind of people they are. They are commies, fascists, Nazis, tolletarian, and liberals, all of which are the same thing. They hate liberty and love tyranny. There is nothing American about them and they should be banished from our country.

  47. What’s HGTV anyway? Don’t think I’ve ever watched it.

    OTOH, F*** all gays. No, on second thoughts, don’t.

  48. One should not care if you are PC or called a racist anymore. It is just the liberals way of manipulating people. What is PC for the liberals is against the conservatives.

  49. Useful IDIOTS of Communism are being despitefully USED!

    Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

    January 10, 1963

    Current Communist Goals



    Thursday, January 10, 1963

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    Any questions?

  50. “Public outcry” by who??? The gay community most likely! What a bunch of BS!!!!!! I use to like HGTV! What a shame!

  51. Just goes to show that you really don’t have to look very far to find the TRUE groups practicing “hate speech”…… do you?

  52. I’ve enjoyed their show for years. It is very educational and I would never guess their political concepts or faith… that was transparent but I knew it was a production my extended family could watch.
    HGTV and affiliated products just lost another family.

  53. Seemed like every time I decided to watch hgtv they were dealing with gays. I do not like watching a show filled with them, so I turn it off. Have not watched hgtv for a very long time and will not in the future for banning a show for the hosts’ private opinions. Perhaps they can join with other good Christians and form their own station. Say, Paula Dean.

  54. Guess the “Gay Mafia” equals a public outcry. Can’t quit watching HGTV/ Don’t watch HGTV. Might have started watch if Flip had of made it on.

  55. The LGBT deviates hold sway in the MSM. Heaven forbid that a normal hetrosexual might become popular and influence people.

  56. Looks to me like the gay extremists are trying to call large scale beat-downs upon themselves????

  57. “What” or “who” complained to HGTV?? I suspect only a few people may have complained. OK, so now we focus our attention to the polygamist man who has five wives and we complain so that show is scrapped (on TLC). FIVE wives is much worse!!

  58. I will never watch HGTV again. Gays want tolerance but they have no tolerance. No wonder the public in the end turns against them. Not for being gay but for bigoted behavior they claim to dislike.

  59. Once again, intolerance and religion or lack thereof, brings about the type of hate that causes wars. The things we say as “good Christians” are wrong as “good humans”. We are also more than just Democrats and Republicans, although Democrats really need to hold their noses when they talk about who they voted for.
    We have no standards, ethics or morals that we as a nation hold ourselves accountable for anymore. The 10 Commandments are a Joke that Late Night Comedians can use as their Top Ten List of what they Don’t Hold to Be True….Sad State of who We Are and where we are Heading.

  60. Start notifying HGTV’S sponsors that you will NOT be buying their products or services. Because of their support and sponsorship of HGTV’S Anti-American, Anti-Freedom of speech, Anti-Religious, Anti-Tolerant stand Against Christians!!!!

  61. It sure seems very unfair to drop a show because of a chosen private life style. What does that have to do with the show itself? Just do not look at a show if you do not like it. Why drop it due to certain pressure from a few radicals.? Sounds very un-American. You can always flip the channel to another show. Bye the way, – How about Firefox dropping their CEO because two years ago he donated $1000 to help to defeat Prop.8 amendment in Calif. So what? . I feel like dropping Foxfire.! Why cannot we tolerate one another no matter what the lifestyle? Some people are going back years and checking records to try and get rid of people they do not agree with. . . .

  62. I also am against homosexual marriage, abortion, and Muslim terrorism so guess I can’t watch HGTV any more.

  63. KC135TopBoom, Old Fart Marine, and BayMan said it all and are 100% correct. We want the Benham Brothers back. The gay designers are talented and innovative. They, however, have not shown the humanitarian efforts these brothers have in building homes for the needy. These brothers are a breath of fresh air. America loves them. Let’s bring them back. If they do not return, I also will be boycotting HGTV.

  64. This is tragic and incredibly sad. It gives testimony to what I am saying all the time: We are living in an Alice in Wonderland world. Except it’s not a wonder, but a terribly confused, convoluted world.

  65. Why do multi millionaires feel the need to be “reality TV” stars?
    And the Duck Dynasty family put on cam o clothing and pretend to be yokels

  66. Back in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, sin and perversity reigned in those two famous cities. Most likely, normal, moral, godly people either left on their own, were driven out, or were besmirched, marginalized and ostracized by the gay citizens of those perverse cities. It is becoming like that here – not just in a couple of cities, but in all of America. That’s scary. Not only because those of us who choose not to live immoral lifestyles do not want to be punished for living by God’s ways, but we know, sadly, that if this entire country is becoming like Sodom and Gomorrah, then most likely a similar fate awaits this entire country. It won’t be pretty, folks. Think about that, next time you’re watching the next Gay Pride Parade. Probably won’t be too many more of these parades before there will be sulfer and brimstone raining on their parade.

    • Sodom & Gomorrah now there’s a story of family values!!! A farther willing to let the towns people rape his virgin daughters, virgins bright enough to grab the liquor when told to flee in a hurry & then the orgy between the farther & two daughters in some cave while their mother has been turned into a salt shaker!

  67. This is a bunch of horse crap. You have a few immoral assholes making noise and you cave in to them. You have immoral legislaters passing immoral laws and expect moral people to follow them. GOD showed The homosexuals and lesbians what he thought of their life style when HE had Sodom and Gomorah demolished. I do not care if you believe that it is a fairy tail or not. It may ease your mind not to believe but you will still be judged by HIM. I do not get into your lifes, why do you feel you have to get into other peoples lives?

    • 10-4 on staying out of my life! A true Christian does not push his beliefs on others but merely shares. Queers need to take heed and do the same.

  68. How about a little HONESTY Minkoff.
    They are like Century21 and own lots of franchises.
    “10 years of flipping houses”

  69. Good for them! It is refreshing to see them stand for the Biblical values they live. There are so many homosexuals on HGTV anymore I don’t watch it. It used to be one of my favorites but the style and decorating ideas are nothing I would put in my home anymore. The last I watched was back when they had their contests for new shows and I don’t know if they still do that but when all the shows become hosed by obvious homosexuals, that turns a lot of us away. Sadly HGTV has turned out like it has. It used to be a good network.

  70. Well, I’m an atheist, I support marriage equality, abortion rights (but not late term), and am against terrorism, Muslim or otherwise. Having said that, I share everyone’s frustration here with a hyper-sensitive network overreacting to what is surely a very vocal minority. This is however, nothing more than the market at work. The way to fight back is for Christians and others offended by this to band together and boycott the network. If you can make a bigger impact than the gays, then they will have to re-evaluate their decision. It worked in the case of Duck Dynasty. Just remember to do it with “grace and humility” like the Benham brothers.

    I would caution against painting all gays with the same broad brush though. They aren’t all hypocrites who treat tolerance as a one-way street, even if some of the more vocal ones are. I’m sure you don’t like it when Christians all get painted with the same brush as say, Fred Phelps.

    • Best point I seen about using the market to make your voices heard. If people simple do not watch the network their numbers plummet and the advertiser will walk away from them. Won’t take long no matter what their political / social beliefs as a business the bottom line will win out for a network like this

  71. One of my favorite programs is the other twin brothers on HGTV. I was looking forward to this set of twins doing a similar show. I have identical twin boys that could have done the same type show but went their separate ways; sadly. I am willing to give up watching HGTV if they are going to be bigots about the way conservative believe. Why do they have the right to force their beliefs on us? They are doing the same thing they hate that we do. Of course the “world” thinks differently and always will. It seems in our day the minority get their way because the majority is willing to let them have it.

  72. How interesting that the activist homosexual community feels so free and righteous in voicing their opposition to those who hold to Christian values, yet want Christians to be silent. Such hypocrisy.

    • What hypocrisy? If humans are nothing more than commodities of only utilitarian value, then there is no basis for freedom of religion or opinion. The activists on behalf of the sexual revolution are merely pursuing their bedrock assumptions to their logical conclusion.

      The reason that slavery and Mormon polygamy aroused such violent confrontation in the 19th Century was that Americans realized that they were inherently incompatible with the American Experiment of liberty They could not continue to co-exist, but that one would ultimately bring the end of the other. Without similar perception today, the gay movement will inevitably prevail.

      • An agenda cannot be masked with eloquence. You’re avoiding the issue. Nobody is required to agree with homosexuality, just as homosexuals are not required to attend church. False allegations against Christians will not change that. Many homosexuals voice their opinions that anyone with an opposing opinion must be silenced. That’s ridiculous. What will previal? Over what? If you voice your opinion, be prepared for opposition just like the rest of us in the world. People do not need affirmation from anyone to believe what they choose to believe.

        • I don’t equate “gay” (in itself the devious ruining of a formerly lovely English word) with homosexual. There’s a distinction of someone struggling with homosexual inclinations in private, and embracing them as a public identity and badge of membership in a group. Because the sexual revolution denies the very basis for the American Revolution–people possess inherent eternal value, are ends in themselves and not means toward ends–the gay agenda inherently is a threat to suppressing EVERY God-given right.

          “It will certainly mean fighting. You won’t rescue Lotho, or the Shire, just by being shocked and sad, my dear Frodo.” It was the deep-down conviction that slavery in the South and polygamy in Utah ultimately threatened the American Experiment that gave 19th Century people the unyielding courage and faith to eventually bring both down after fierce struggle against seemingly implacable foes–and if you don’t think the same will be required today, I’d say you were very naive.

          • Temptation is not sin, so there is a difference between anyone struggling with it and those who embrace it. Homosexuality challenges Christianity, but it does not suppress it. Too many Christians cave on the issue, most likely because their relationship with Christ is not solid. There is nothing that the homosexual agenda can do to limit Christians unless we allow it. You seem to believe that I’m naive about their agenda. I’m very much aware of what they are trying to do-I simply don’t fear it, nor do I intend to allow it to silence me. You seem to believe that because I have no fear that I’m not taking them seriously. I do take them seriously, but I take my God more seriously.

  73. Just caught the twins on TV, they basically said HGTV got bullied by a small vocal group and caved. They also have been contacted by several other networks already. Also HGTV vetted them and were aware of their view

    • Perhaps HGTV forgot that DUCK DYNASTY tanked after
      they made similar statements. And this woke them up.

      • it is not usual for series ratings to drop as they age, that is from various tv rating site not me just saying it; however, they were still the top show on cable in viewers and among adults 18-49 (key demographic group for advertisers)

  74. Their dishonesty didn’t help.
    In another statement, a real one with quotes, on the Blaze,
    they said, I’ll paraphrase, we are not against homosexuals, and have never spoken out
    about any individual. What does that even mean? THey specifically said, Elton John?
    Then they added “we are against their agenda. (Which makes no sense whatsoever.)
    Civil right are an agenda? Denying civil rights base on YOUR religious beliefs is peachy keen?

    • NOT dishonest. NOT AT ALL. What the brothers meant was…that although they do not accept homosexuality as “normal,” they accept that some people are not “straight,” and as Christians…they turn the other cheek. That’s all. That is NOT hypocritical. In fact, that is my attitude as well, and yes, I have a number of friends and family who happen to be gay. My friends and family are simply accepted for who they are, not what they profess to be and I leave them alone…in regard to their lifestyle choices.

      • They attack the “agenda”.
        “Agenda” = Civil rights.
        It’s very simple. After the Phil Robertson debacle. Duck Dynasty’s ratings tanked.
        Why even bother with thee newbie?
        Their past statemente came back to bite them in the arse.
        And PLEEEEEEEEEEASE already, hate wrapped in religion IS STILL HATE!

      • They DO NOT turn the other cheek.
        They proselytize and condemn.
        Like O’Reilly did with that abortion doctor “Tiller the Killer”.

        • You are the one who is proselytizing and condemning, Charles. Is putting pressure on a station to cancel a show because the twins, in this case, don’t have the same view point as you do?? That’s not even American! I, like scot-belle, have gay friends that I love and I don’t care about their lifestyle choices one way or the other. The gays who try to destroy others who don’t have the same view point are giving a bad name to all the gays. About “Tiller the Killer”….abortion does kill innocent unborn babies, and he was even killing them in an especially cruel way, when they were born alive….so Tiller the Killer is an appropriate name for him. I would add the word “Evil” to his name.

          • Never heard of them or their show,
            I don’t even have cable.
            So typical of you righties, (Wrongies)
            1) Just make something up.
            2) Pontificate on what YOU JUST MADE UP

    • Go away. Your sentences and thoughts are incoherent. You embarrass yourself to the extent you should consider…well, self extermination is drastic…but, you get the picture.

      • Perhaps YOU can supply me with a copy of this “gay agenda”.
        These 2 sanctimonious dolts simply seem to be putting a new spin on
        ye olde “Love the sinner, but hate the sin.”
        Thankfully non Christians have no sense of this so called concept of sin.

        • Mr. Almon, the gays just like the muslims have taken full advantage of the weakening of American morality and backbone, too many moral Americans have – in the name of “compassion” turned not only the other cheek but also a blind eye to the aggresive invasion of this country by the gay agenda and the muslim agenda. And don’t try pretending that “what gay agenda?” stuff on me, because it won’t work. If you don’t know what gay agenda, they you’re the one still living in the closet.
          Gay intolerance for non-gays is just as narrow-minded as is muslem intolerance for non-muslims. You gays can no longer cry about being discriminated against… you are now the discriminators. You gays are the big proselyters – trying to get recruits from among the young and naive and hormone-crazed. Putting pro-gay curriculum in our schools so our children will be indoctrinated to not only accept but to try out and adopt your wicked lifestyles. Not cool. Not cool at all. Go form your own gay nation… and take this gay anti-American president with you while you’re at it.

        • Unless you turn from your sin and seek The Lord and His free gift of Salvation and Grace—NO HEAVEN FOR YOU!
          Just stating the truth.

    • Gays are not included in the civil rights act. So I don’t know what civil rights you speak of that you are wanting anymore than a straight person has.

        • Last I checked, your worshipped administration isnt enforcing the DOMA. So your wish is already in effect. Try again.

          • In many states you still cannot get married.
            Why do righties post things – JUST TO POST THINGS or be contrary.

            On that note, Be sure to tell Rick Perry, ( and dozens of other right wing legislators )
            abortion is a perfectly legal medical procedure in America. Almost impossible to get one in Texasmnow.

            Conservative bloggers are the dumbest people on the planet.

          • Your ridiculous postings demonstrate that you are the dumb one, Charles Almon. In response to your comment regarding abortions: they may be legal, but they are immoral. Good for Texas!!!

        • and I want to have my very own herd of unicorns who fart dollar bills. It’s my right. Oh, they don’t exist? Neither does marriage between a man and a man (or 2 women). It is contrived and immoral. Just like the “right” to kill pre-born babies. But your contrived and immoral president is granting your fairy tale wishes. So where’s my unicorn?

  75. GOOD FOR THOSE GUYS. If it was the other way around, NOTHING would be said. FAGGOTS don’t bother me. OR, FAGGOTS, DON’T BOTHER ME. Get the difference?????? Hope ya did.

  76. I will not watch HGTV, period. HGTV and the gays ( gay use to be a nice word describing friendly, happy, caring people)are the real extremists. The brothers told the truth. if these complainers don’t like take it up with God!

  77. The power to shut down HGTV is in our control.
    Refuse to buy any product from a company which advertises on HGTV.
    No sponsors, no money, unable to pay for programing, off of the air.

  78. The truly sad thing is that there obviously weren’t enough Christians who bothered to write in and ENCOURAGE HGTV to continue with the show. Perhaps a different decision (a la ‘Duck Dynasty’) would have been made.
    When, oh when will people of faith wake up from their stupor and actually start BEING salt and light – and not just on Sundays?

    • I don’t know how many wrote the HGTV people. But these days it does not really matter. Those who espouse the gay liberal agenda are zealots and they care way more about their agenda than about ratings or money. Just like obamacare is very unpopular but is still rammed down our throats by an arrogant gov’t gone wild with power madness.

  79. “Our ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, not any government secure which is not supported by moral habits…. Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens.”

    Senator Daniel Webster
    Speaking at Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1820

  80. Time for Christians to be louder than the 2% of homosexuals. Bullies bully more and more viciously when the victim stay silent. Arise, o Church, Arise!

  81. This is easy. NO MORE. It is getting tiring. The LGBT or whatever, only think one way. They may think they have power but when it goes away they will be in a pickle. Realistically we don’t give a crap how they live, or what they do. I don’t agree but it seems that when someone “comes out” who are they coming out to? They seem to be the only ones who didn’t know that everyone already knew they were gay. The only reason they get treated different is because of their “upitty” attitude they get. Normal people don’t act like that and they are shooting themselves in the foot. If we didn’t have a gay president who can’t seem to tell the truth no matter what they would not get away with as much as they do. Again I say NO MORE. As for HGTV boycott. Turn it off.

  82. This another reason why our goverment creates chaos in society. They push things just for sake of votes, so they claim. We don’t vote goverment decides who they want. The gay issue should have been left in the closet. We have to except them for thier right to the first amenment. but the goverment wants to dictate who has a right to the first amenment. For example, goverment wants to control the media, freedom of speach but will allow gays have thier right to the first amenment. Goverment and schools don’t want anyone to have freedom of religion but gays still have thier rights to express themselfs. Do you see the point I’m trying to make here?

    • We all have rights in govt. Govt. isn’t just for you. Church and state should be separate. The media is mostly controlled by corporations. In the case of Fox, it is Republican media outlet on TV.
      You’re also very welcome to go home and stay on your knees for hours in prayer if you wish to do so. After all, Jack Van Impe’s father did that and no one interfered with his religious beliefs.

      • No gov wants to decide what media can report, violation of the first amenment right? They want everyone to except gays, right? No violation of the first amenment. Gov and schools don’t want religion in society. violation of the first amenment. Not all about goverment, about the constitution. but goverment wants to control what, and who gets to have these rights.

  83. Yeah DROP HGTV – I can do without them. Good for these twins – I hope they stick to their thinking. Seems HGTV and gays cannot stand the first amendment!!

  84. I can’t believe this. I always thought HGTV was a good channel to watch and then they pull this crap. It is all right to put on honest, good, faithful people. You do not need to follow the herd down the road to obscenity and grossness. The world will not end if you do what is right. Believe me, there are a lot of us that do not and will not follow this administration to bring down the goodness of America ,and America will remember who did not stand up for it and did their part to destroy it. America has always stood by those who did the right thing for all the people.

  85. I’am cancelling my subscription to HGTV. HGTV should stay away from social engineering. HGTV intolerance and bullying has no place in the market.

  86. I can’t believe HGTV caved to this intolerance and thought control. I will continue to watch HGTV only long enough to identify its sponsors so that I can boycott them. Eventually, companies like Mozilla and TV shows like HGTV will come to realize that they will pay a far greater price for participating in this bigotry and economic extortion. Heterosexuals and and others who believe this kind of economic extortion should not be allowed to continue need to organize and unify so that their efforts to combat this growing threat to free speech and liberty can become focused and more effective. It is obvious that non-heterosexuals closely monitor changes in TV programing and corporate leadership and impose their demands whenever these changes don’t meet their approval. The only recourse that heterosexuals and non-bigots have is to act with their economic decisions.

  87. So, that’s what HGTV stands for–H(omosexual) G(ay) T(ransvestite) V(iewing). I’d tell them where to shove it, but, they’d probably enjoy it.

  88. Christians need to take over the media by first creating their own media (is bring done with news now but needs to be done with entertainment as well) then abandon the sodomite worshipping networks.

  89. It just doesn’t pay to be a straight Christian any more! Where has the Country I grew up in gone to? This is what tolerance brings us-plenty on our side-absolutely none on the other side. I hope this so called network loses viewers big time-as they deserve to.

  90. So if you do not agree with their lifestyle you should be silenced and arrested and beaten and thrown in the ash heap. Is that about right?
    They screamed their heads off to be accepted and now you can not disagree at all with what they do.
    If HGTV is going to give in every time a gay starts screaming then they deserve what they get.
    The show was about fixing up houses, they were not preaching against gays.
    I think I am entitled to my feelings about their lifestyle just like they have theirs about mine. I am a Christian first and believe what God said. How they live is an abomination. I don’t care what they do, I will never be a part of that.
    I don’t force them to change but they want to force us to change.
    Get over it, I follow the word of God whether you like it or not and HGTV better get on the right side.

  91. These people are chronic whiners- whine, whimper, complain, moan and crybabies. I’d like to think they equate with one another, but they don’t because Muslims hate homosexuals; In Nigeria and Africa,, they are murdering each and every one they can find. So I guess we won’t see the LGBT at Mosques…unless they want to protest until Muslims ‘give in’ (aw shucks) and they, too, can wear nifty clothes and pray to a fabricated Allah. Gays should have kept their collective mouths shut, they would probably be ahead of ‘the game’ but they couldn’t with their ‘Look At Me’ vanity (ugh). Running at a par both gays & Muslims have to be the most loathes some people on the planet. Only those of the same ilk cares about them. Oh yes, God certainly does but they’ve dropped kicked Him and ignore His Laws- too bad, so sad….
    It will become interesting in the future…….

  92. Maybe Fox could use a good show like this or maybe Blaze TV. More and more people are looking for good programs and especially the ones that help others! Just a thought, Thank you guys for all you do!

  93. Apparently, tolerance for opposing views is not a strong point for homosexuals. Surprising, since they claim to be victims all the time. HGTV will not be on my list.

    Homosexuals have succeeded in cowing the Christians, and even non-christians, that don’t hold their view of society or the world. Extremists are not the Christians in society, it’s the homosexuals who insist, just like the radical muslims, that we hold their view.

  94. If you have ever looked at HGTV, you know that homosexuals are on the shows far more than their actual numbers represent. Time for another “HGTV-like” channel; this one with no bias. It should do well.

  95. I am disappointed that HGTV cancelled what appeared to be a very good, informative show because a group of gays objected to their Christian values. Is this America?? Many people who watch HGTV have the same values that the Benham brothers have, and many don’t, but what does that have to do with their ability to produce an excellent show that would probably be popular? HGTVs’ decision to cancel the show is unprofessional and wrong. They will lose viewers because of it, and will also lose a good show that would be interesting, helpful and a ratings winner. I understand that the Benham brothers are being offered many other opportunities. They will thrive.

  96. Both guys know that to stand for Christian principle without judging that they will find opposition to those principals. Christian persecution is the result of forces in dark places. Like Skywalker eventually converted his farther Darth Vader to the right side of the force. Now what if all Christian banded together and completely stop supporting the entertainment industry and use their hard earned money in the community in which they live. How long would it be before the rich and famous started to feel the pinch of less income to their present lifestyle? But you see Christian would not retaliate at large for the majority of Christian believe that “it does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil”. You could understand that in their latest interview on the O’Reilly Factor that they hold no grudges towards HGTV or their non-supporting public.

  97. Well hell Charles is out defending his queer buddies now. Whats going on is a band of queers get together and do just what obama did with the petitions he had signed, used false names and people. A band of 10 queers can generate 100’s of letters and phone calls because they have nothing in life worth doing but trying to force normal people to accept their disgusting and perverse life style. So queers are best ignored like the position they occupy at the bottom with the rest of the trash, And the Duck boys are laughing all the way to the many Banks that they own and still hate queers publicly. So Charles you are fighting for a dead cause.

  98. Liberals have taken on the role of bullying…. to a degree never experienced before. Despite the image of “extreme” groups like the “Tea Party” and other conservative clusters, gay activists, who represent a just a tiny fraction of our population, have become the gorilla among us. Like it or not, all you peace loving, willing to evade conflict at any cost, conservatives, the gay rights activists have bloodied everyone’s noses. What’s even more disheartening is that our “forward thinking” progressive government is embracing it. Traditional family values…watch out!

  99. Treating HGTV just like the other terrorist channels! Can’t be watched in my house. Treat it the same as I do the first anti-American president who cannot speak the truth.

  100. HGTV used to be my favorite channel several years ago, and then they revamped their programming and removed most of the shows I watched. So I haven’t watched this channel in about 4 years.

    TV viewership has been dwindling steadily for a number of years. I now only watch Pawn Stars on the History Channel (the only show I watch on that channel, as their idea of history is not accurate), and TCM movies, and the retro channels ME TV, Cozi TV, and Antenna TV. I don’t even watch TV Land anymore since they began their original programming shows. Oh, wait, I do watch Mayberry and Everybody Loves Raymond occasionally.

    The big corporations that control the airwaves aren’t like the rest of us. They are continually on the wrong side of their viewers. Only clean, wholesome shows with positive role models are really succeeding now days, thus the popularity of the retro channels I listed.

    • I agree! Love the Pawn Stars. TV shows nowadays teach people that having no morals, ethics or self respect is ok. I miss those old fashion feel good and laugh hard shows. Very few shows nowadays that don’t promote homosexualality or lack of respect for parents.

  101. HGTV is now blocked from my TV. I’m so SICK and TIRED of the gay life style being forced down my throat. I personally believe homosexuality is wrong. I won’t be telling someone how to live their lives, or what they can or cannot do in their own homes, so don’t expect me to accept it, I WON’T!

  102. How many cried foul???? Two, maybe three?? It is time these sodomites learned where they get their freedoms from!!!! They get them from GOD!!! And, if they were Godly, they would be praising HIS name and condemning their sodomite ways!!!

    • Nope. I get my freedoms- and responsibilities- from me.

      When I am going skydiving, God does not pull the parachute cord. I do.

      He does not keep me from flying into a tree on landing. I do.

      He does not keep me from losing rear traction in a curve and careening off the road when I’m taking the Ducati out. I do.

      He does not keep bad drivers in cars from hitting me on the freeway. I do. I have to if your vehicle is 3 tons and mine is 300 lbs.

      He does not drive me to the track. He does not get the bike up to 170 mph in the straightaway. I do.

      God probably did many things a long time ago, long before we were born, perhaps billions of years before we existed. Today, humans do things. Humans take responsibility for the life they are given.

      God is not responsible for my life. Why should he alone be the source of my freedoms?

      Anyways, back to being the gay guy who has capital, runs the economy, and buys stuff from HGTV- at least when its TV hosts aren’t attacking gay people.

          • I feel sorry for you, son……you have been duped!!! I would really like to know how you came up with that notion. I you don’t believe in God….you don’t belong in this great Nation. I’m sorry.

          • Once again, you are so wrong. Please read the Declaration of Independence. We are a Judeo-Christian Nation. Go to and read that site.

          • Hmmm. I am finding that we are having a somewhat civil conversation, which is rare and very surprising for this site. Sorry for my gruff responses earlier- for the record I felt yelled at for not acknowledging your one true God.

            I think there are a lot of perspectives on this, but the bottom line is that *many* heroes of the American Revolution would not qualify as anything close to Christian by today’s more stringent orthodox Evangelical standards. Jefferson was *clearly* a Deist and clearly had some belief in Christ but he also did not believe in the existence of hell.

            I think the other big problem today is that Evangelical Christianity, as it is used in public, is primarily a means to exert control over other peoples’ politics and ultimately over the country’s policies. That was not what the framers had hoped for when they founded this country.

  103. If you can lose your job for being anti-gay then Christians have legal rights to refuse to bake cakes for Gays…Or Even marry them.. One set of laws for everyone or we can pick and choose our own like Obama and Holder

    • They have legal rights to boycott gays, certainly gays who attack Christians. You’ll note we don’t say anything mean about the religion, although we occasionally say stuff that you consider sacrilegious when Bible verses are being thrown in our face.

      In any case, as a Republican, you are beginning to understand what it’s like to be pushed around by rich (gay) people. Not fun, huh? Now you know why nice gay people are OK voting for moderate Republicans in primaries and even some fiscally moderate Democrats!

  104. Well I’m not a politically correct person.I don’t like gays,muslims and ni66ers and I do not believe in homosexual marriage at all.I do believe in christian principles and GOD.Now that ,that is said y’al have a nice day hear.

  105. Public outcry? Only in the deranged, twisted minds of fags – they really think the public is demanding more homosexual content in programming – yeah, right. If anything, the public is really getting sick and tired of this indoctrination drive by fags. This is going to back fire on the butt reamers big time.

      • Hi, not surprised your perplexed. Not perplexed in the least here. 57% of this country does not support same-sex ‘marriage’. Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt. Deal with it.

        Indiana voters made the issue of natural marriage crystal clear in last night’s primary, ‘refusing to “hold their peace” on two GOP House members who helped sink the state’s chance at a marriage protection amendment. Kathy Heuer (R) and Rebecca Kubacki (R) probably regret their decision to undercut the state’s marriage amendment now, after losing in a landslide rebuke of their liberal social positions. The women, who both lost to pro-marriage challengers, flip-flopped on the issue when the state was debating a November referendum — betraying the GOP platform and ultimately costing Hoosiers the chance to vote their values.

        Of course, the media wants you to think that Americans everywhere are ready throw man-woman marriage on the ash heap of history. Don’t believe it. What happened in Indiana Tuesday only proves what the polling says: Republicans don’t just support natural marriage — they expect their candidates to. A few weeks ago, FRC released some pretty eye-opening numbers from a survey we commissioned by WPA Opinion Research.

        In what should be a wake-up call to the GOP Establishment, 82% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents believe marriage “should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.” And they’re tired of their elected leaders ignoring the issue — or worse, pushing the party in the opposite direction. Three-quarters of respondents scoffed the idea that “politicians should support the redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples” (with 67% strongly agreeing).’

        The vast majority in this country strongly supports natural marriage, whether you like it or not.

        • So we’re down to Republican primaries now rather than general election ballot initiatives? My, how things change in ten years.

          Oh well, there will be a court ruling soon and gay people will be moving to your neighborhood. If it’s upscale enough. Otherwise, they’ll be moving to a richer neighborhood near you and maybe buying the business you work for. Gay people earn more and own more than the average American, it’s no surprise that we control more of the economy, and it’s no surprise that we get what we want when famous people in industry say bad things about us.

          Have a nice day!

          • No, not just the Rep primaries, but also 75% of the voters of the state of Ark… know…..the majority as with most other states.

            Same-sex deviants already live in our area, always have, always will which is fine by us. We don’t live in a neighborhood, we are surrounded by hundreds of acres of our own land, so they won’t bother us or move by us…..see? We own our own businesses….self employed….so no chance same-sex perverts will be buying our businesses. You really believe you and your kind ‘control more of the economy’? Funny, in a pathetic sort of way, and demented. The thing is, we have already won, I know how it all ends. Things will be very bad for you and your kind unless you repent and believe; if not, you won’t be getting anything you want.

            Have a nice day!

  106. I agree with cae973 that it is time we dropped HGTV. The network has homosexuals on their programs on a very regular basis, and still the pro gay, pro homosexual marriage, pro muslim crowd is not satisfied. As a motor coach operator, I transported a group of homosexuals (against my better judgement, but it was a favor to another driver who had an emergency) to a venue in Orlando, Fl. during “gay day” activities in Orlando, Fl. In 1999. Drivers meals are provided free at this theater, so I was in the theater during a “special gays only” show at this theater. Following the show, the president of the gay and lesbian organization made an announcement to the crowd. I will NEVER forget what he said, and here it is: “last year, we shut down the Magic Kingdom at 1 pm by order of the fire marshall due to the number of people in the park. This year, we want to shut it down when it opens. I want everyone at the gates of the Magic Kingdom at 9 AM, so that we can have the park all to ourselves.” Folks, they did that. Ihere were so many gays there the next morning at 9 AM, the fire marshall shut the park down until people left. As a coach operator in Orlando at that point, I knew what this meant to bands, choirs,church youth groups, etc. They all have an itinerary when they come to Orlando, and it usually means they plan on going to one park a day while they are there. As a result of what the pro homosexual crowd did that day, no groups were allowed to visit the Magic Kingdom. I am afraid that this is what the pro gay, pro homosexual marriage, pro muslim groups want to do to our nation as a whole. They want America all to themselves, to do what they want, when they want, and normal people will be left no choice but to do what ever is left after they get through. I think normal, heterosexual people need to take a stand right here, right now. I, for one, make this pledge. I will patronize only those businesses who are opposed to homosexuality, gay marriage, and muslim ideals. I will boycott any business that supports those ideals. I will show up to support businesses that are being protested by gay, lesbian groups, and I will be vocal in my support of those businesses. We have to do something to save our country, our ideals, our rights as Americans. Who will take this pledge with me?

  107. God bless the Benham boys and I hope they won’t let idiotic political correctness deter them from working toward, and achieving their goals. It amazes me how big companies, industries, whatever, bow down to a handful of idiots. Their views are their own and as far as I know they are still entitled to them. I can’t imagine their show was to be about their views so HGTV needs to be banished, just as they have done to these two men. God help us.

  108. I have no idea what HGTV is. Is it really a good idea to give houses to people that can’t afford them? It is cheaper to rent. And far less problematic. How long will they live there before the house is taken for unpaid taxes?

  109. It seems that this whole subkect matter is bass ackwards. With a mere 3-4% of Americans self identifying as homosexual, it would appear that Their viewpoint is the extreme one. While the majority of Americans are willing to bend over backwards to allow others to exercise their rights, under our Constitution. The very ones who are pushing the envelope of, shall we say, ‘normalacy’, are the most intolerant of all.
    As far as Islamic radical fundamentalism goes, most American Muslims are often embarrassed, themselves, by the actions of the few, extremists.
    Yes there are too many people on this planet. All natural population control mechanisms have pretty much been thwarted. While some have religious objections to abortion and some use it as a means of birth control (repeatedly), most Americans have never had an abortion. It has it’s place, but not as an excuse for forgetfulness, or sheer laziness. Other birth control methods are far easier & less traumatic, both physically & emotionally.
    Even though the old axiom; ‘a squeaky wheel gets the grease’, is still abundantly true, the vast, silent majority of Americans are, still, center-right.
    It would seem that certain ‘squeaky wheels’ are fond proponents of being the ‘relentless minority, setting brushfires in other’s minds’, for their own, personal agendas, while denying everyone else their own Constitutional rights, to think, feel & bbelieve the way they want to… It’s gone so far as to the point of becoming ‘cultural Marxism’, antithesis to everything our nation stands for.

    • 3-4% of the country is homosexual, but 50-60% of the country has a homosexual friend or family member. The personal connection ultimately overwhelms tradition.

      • No, the family connection does not overwhelm tradition….not with our family and all the others I know. Same-sex deviancy is a sin no matter if a son, daughter, sister, brother, cousin, aunt, uncle, mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, niece, nephew or friend commits it. We love them, but we do not accept, condone or embrace their deviancy…..never will.

        • That’s your choice. But at the end of the day, you’re *probably* going to die alone if you don’t change your mind about family members.

          Have a nice day!

          • Nah, all my family and friends are of like mind. We *probably* will die surrounded by the love and support of most all of them.

          • Until a few more people have the courage to come out in your family and “ruin everything” or force you to change your mind.

          • Except, it would not ‘ruin everything’ or force me to do anything, especially change my mind. Christ is my anchor, nothing else.

          • Right. Except for when it’s plainly evident that the Bible is claiming stuff that’s false.

          • Romans 1 claims that homosexuality is unnatural- that it is not found in nature. A UIC fruit fly experiment finds, instead, that homosexuality is driven by natural chemicals in the brain.

            The state of being homosexual is not unnatural or evil if it can be explained by basic chemistry and it’s not under a person’s control.

          • Romans 1 – “Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

            For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

            And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.”

            In all the above, there is not a single reference to indecent acts not being found in nature. Your logic fails, and your understanding of Scripture is negligible. Fruit flies? When you have to resort to using insects and animals to justify your perversion, you have lost by all accounts.

            Same-sex deviancy is unnatural and leads to all manner of evil. The God who created the people and scientists who warp His creation to fit their sinful agenda will judge them rightly. It is all under His control, whether you like it or not. Again, as He said: “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is UNNATURAL, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error (disease).

            And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, EVIL; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, HATERS OF GOD, insolent, arrogant, BOASTFUL, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, WITHOUT understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;….those who practice such things are worthy of DEATH,…”.

          • Uhh, you missed this part:

            “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another,”

            Bzzt. Sorry. The literal interpretation of this verse has been contradicted by modern science.

            >”untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;….those who practice such things are worthy of DEATH,…”

            You keep claiming that. Maybe it’s true for you. Fortunately, for the rest of us, that’s not really true. We stopped being homophobic half a century ago.

            Have a nice day!

          • “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another,” which says nothing about indecent acts ‘not found in nature’ among insects and animals. Do keep up.

            Contradicted by ‘modern science’? Pffffttttt! Scripture never contradicts itself.

            I don’t make the claim, I repeat what the Bible, God, claims. Die a practicing same-sex deviant, you are worthy of death….period. Also, I’m not scared of same-sex pervs, none of us are.

          • You claim the Bible claims this. That’s your “literal” interpretation of the Bible. Other people have other “literal” interpretations. That’s the beauty of living in a pluralistic society.

            I don’t think God thinks homosexuality is a big deal. God showed signals of changing his mind about all of that stuff through the life and teachings of Christ and finally let go of it in Acts 15.

          • The Bible means what it says, regardless of interpretations.

            Acts 15 has forty-one verses and nowhere in it does God approve of same-sex deviants. Prove it. You are lying…. again. Numbers 23:19 – “God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.”

          • There are no double meanings in God’s Word. You say you don’t think God thinks homosexuality is a big deal. You may not think but do you know. Guessing games are dangerous and the word is clear. God does not leave us in guessing games. He said those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Are you calling God a liar, or just trying to tell him he is wrong?

            I couldn’t have written it better so I suggest you pray on Jon Quinn has written.

            .”They Shall Not Inherit The Kingdom of God”

            1 Corinthians 6:9-11
            Contrary to what some folks would have you to believe, I know of very few preachers of the gospel who relish the thought of people missing heaven. “Fire and brimstone preachers” they call those who are faithful to the Scriptures and take the warnings therein seriously enough to mention them. Preachers and teachers of this sort are usually characterized as harsh and unloving. Certainly some of them are. But facts are facts and that the Word of God warns that certain types of behavior will cause people to be lost. And isn’t it also possible that many of those sounding the warnings are doing so because of genuine concern for others? The liberal “do whatever you choose to do” crowd will deny it, but it is the truth.

            It is in the spirit of concern and loyalty to the facts as God has caused them to be stated in His Word that this article is written. It is not intended to make anybody mad. The title suggests that not everybody is going to heaven. Already, we are being too “narrow-minded” for many people. But we shall go even further and get specific, but not any more specific than the Scriptures. So if you do not like some of the specifics, take your argument not to the source of this article, but to the source of the Scriptures upon which this article is based; our Creator.

            “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” (I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11). The spiritual and moral environment of the first century city of Corinth was extremely unhealthy. Out of this culture, which had seen its prime and under the crushing weight of further moral decline would one day destroy itself, men and women answered the call of the gospel. They sought purpose for their lives; they sought a better way; they sought an eternal and abiding hope. They found it in Christ Jesus. Even if their city and culture would shortly lie in ruins, they would live forever.

            “And nothing unclean and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it (the holy city, new Jerusalem – J.Q.), but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” (REVELATION 21:27). Paul had given a list of things which, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, he termed “unrighteous” and said that those who practice such things “shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” But if one is engaged in such activity, all is not lost. There are steps to take to remedy the situation. We’ll discuss that later.

            According to I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11:
            (1) Fornicators shall not inherit the kingdom of God. This term refers to those who engage in sexual activity which God has declared sinful. He has not declared all sexual activity. In fact, He condones and even encourages lawful sexual activity according to His design and purpose (I CORINTHIANS 7:2-4; HEBREWS 13:4). Fornication refers to sexual activity outside of the marriage relationship between a man and a woman. It would include premarital as well as extramarital sexual relationships of whatever duration from a one night stand to an ongoing affair. Such activity was rampant in first century Corinth. It is rampant today in our own society. But it matters not how commonly it is practiced, it is still unrighteous and it will keep one from entering heaven.
            (2) Idolaters shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Those who offer to others what belongs unto God are idolaters. A person’s idol might be a huge, grotesque image carved out of stone before which he bows. Or it might be his own desires. It is anything that a person adores more than God. Idolatry will keep one from entering heaven.
            (3) Adulterers shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Adultery seems to be more specific a term than fornication. It is usually limited to sexual unfaithfulness to a marriage partner. Adultery will keep one from entering heaven.
            (4) The effeminate shall not enter the kingdom of God. When we see this word, we think of a sissy. But the word goes beyond that. It refers to one who is soft, specifically, to the passive partner in a homosexual relationship. Being effeminate will keep one from entering heaven.
            (5) Homosexuals shall not enter the kingdom of God. This word is used twice in the New Testament; in the text we are examining as well as I TIMOTHY 1:10. It denotes one who would take the leading role in a homosexual relationship. It is not fashionable today to suggest that such activity is unrighteous and will keep one out of the kingdom of God, but that is what the Covenant of Jesus Christ says. Practicing homosexuality will keep one from entering heaven.
            (6) Thieves shall not enter the kingdom of God. There is no excuse for taking that which rightfully belongs to another. Whether its shoplifting, pilfering, short-changing or armed robbery, fraud and extortion, it is thievery. Whether the person doing the stealing is rich or poor it will still keep one from entering heaven.
            (7). The covetous will not enter the kingdom of God. This has to do with having an uncontrollable desire to possess a certain thing. It motivates one into committing sin in order to satisfy greed. Coveting that which belongs to another will keep one from entering heaven.
            (8) Drunkards shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Children of God have no need to cloud their perspectives nor dull their senses. We must be able to think and reason clearly. Drunkenness causes one to lose focus and rationality. Those who give themselves over to intoxication will find that it keeps them from entering heaven.
            (9) Revilers shall not inherit the kingdom of God. There are many to speak boldly about things that they know little about. Many men and women of God have had to endure reproach for their faith. Not even the Son of God escaped verbal abuse. But they will not have to endure it forever because there will be no revilers in heaven.
            (10) Swindlers shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Seducers and smooth talkers of all kinds are included here. The religious con-man belongs to this group as well as the secular. Those who prey on others by trying to take advantage of their misfortune would also be included. Swindlers cannot take their ill-gotten goods with them when they leave this world, nor will they enter heaven.

            “And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” (I CORINTHIANS 6:11). The Christians at Corinth had been involved in these things before their conversions. During that time they had no hope at all of heaven. Also, any Christians returning to such practices would forfeit their eternal home with God.

            But these things were now a part of the past. The disciples at Corinth had been washed, sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This happened when they obeyed the gospel from the heart.. This obedience involves those who have come to believe in Jesus repenting of their former conduct and being baptized in the name of Christ (ACTS 2:38). Thus they had been washed (baptized), sanctified (set apart from their old manner of life and dedicated to a new purpose) and justified (declared forgiven and made righteous by God’s grace). God took people who were headed toward eternal destruction, and by His power and grace had altered their direction. He continues to do so today. Those who live according to His purpose shall inherit the kingdom of God.

            By Jon W. Quinn
            From Expository Files 1.2; February, 1994

            Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

            Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

            Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

            Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

            Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.



            I’m sorry, but I’m not going to buy your papal indulgence by voting socially conservative.

          • Papal you, where are coming from the Bible is not
            Catholic. That is the word of God. Catholic and papal are buzz words for a religion, that the majority of Christians in the USA reject, Get educated would you. And it is the Word of God you rejecting, so why don’t you just say it that way and quit using words you have no understanding of ..

          • Oh no. I grew up Orthodox Evangelical Protestant. From the age of 14 to 22, I had a personal relationship with Christ. He’d speak to me through the holy spirit.

            But it’s the same deal at the end of the day. In the evangelical church, nobody cares what you believe and everyone cares how you vote.

          • Perplexed, God cares how think…. You don’t answer to man , you answer to God. Base all your decisions on that.

          • Something tells me that, while God exists, while fixed morals probably exist, God is probably not concerned about our tiny planet or the tiny organisms that run around on it yelling at each other that call themselves humans.

      • That still doesn’t negate the rights of the rest of Americans to believe as they choose.
        Attempting for force everyone to toe the ‘politically correct’ line isn’t American, it’s, as I said, Cultural Marxism.

        • You have a right to believe as you choose.

          You do not have a right to go on the radio telling people they’re demonic and expect them to keep doing business with the company that pays your salary.

          Let’s face it- gay people are rich. We earn more than straight people; we certainly earn more than rednecks. We have more wealth and control over the economy, too. Isn’t this what Republicans want? For the smart people with all of the capital to make decisions about the economy?

          You absolutely are entitled to say what you think about things without fear of arrest by the government. But I control more than my fair share of money in this economy, and if you speak out against me or people like me, I am not going to do business with you.

          Laissez-Fare Capitalism 101. You’re not entitled to my business if I find the things you say offensive. To have anything else would be socialist.

          • Going on the radio and saying whatever one believes is what freedom is about, in particular, free speech. Don’t like it, turn it off and never listen to that station again. Simple, adult thing to do.

            Again, you are deluded if you really believe you people have more control of the economy… don’t.

          • We just got someone fired from HGTV. You were whining about the fact that we are able to do this earlier. Now I’m laughing at you for it.

          • Goes both ways, people don’t need to do business with you either. And because they don’t approve of your words and behavior, should you lose your livelihood too? I think not. We all have disagreements, big ones… But taking away someone’s right to do business is wrong. Let the market take care of it as you say. Don’t steal their out from underneath them. My stepson is gay but he doesn’t push his lifestyle on anyone else. He doesn’t boycott, he is very successful, an dyes gay men will always do better, because they have two male incomes coming in, not male and female. And their money is spent mostly on themselves, not families. So what, you can’t take it with you.

          • Of course they don’t need business with me. I don’t need their business either. Ever hear of the profession “Options Trader”?

            If you don’t like me, stop trading options. Oh wait, the average redneck anti-gay person doesn’t know what one is. These are things that rich, intelligent people use to manage their portfolios, and they make me A LOT of money. Enough to retire in my 20s, in fact.

            Have a nice day!

  110. Sad that good old fashion beliefs that we as individuals have the right to have get persecuted while the “other” groups of people can hate on us, cause us to lose our jobs and sue us because “they” say we are racist and unfair. Well, I speak my mind and don’t agree with “their” choices and would not practice them but at the same time, they are God’s children and it is He who will judge not me. I don’t believe in the Muslim beliefs, arrogance, racism of any kind or political correctness. That said, I am now fed up with all the crap being thrown in our faces each day because we are white and have “OUR” beliefs. I believe we need to stand up more as I have and will continue to do. I will not allow my country fall to socialism and unfair ignorance. HGTV can kiss my butt and so can all the other people, groups or shows that support their decision. Sad that 2 brothers doing a good thing for people are treated this way. Wish I had the money to pay for them to have a show on “WET” TV (White Entertainment Television). Oh wait, that would be racist like BET! Good luck my fellow Americans!

  111. My wife loves HGTV and they always have gays on, playing with their little gay houses and pretending like they are respectable people doing respectable things. It is nuts. You are right when you say they are very well represented. Very LGBT influenced network.

      • She likes that home design kind of stuff, and after 25+ years of her putting up with me, I realize I found a gem. If her TV watching choices are the one thing I can criticize then I’m doing pretty well, I think.

  112. I am pro-traditional marriage, but not anti-gay. I respect gays. And I honestly do not have any issues with gays. But if the gays are going to equate such marriage view as being anti-gay as they did to the Benham twin brothers, or force their views and behaviors on me, or censor my views, then they are going to lose my respect and support. To the gays, please be respectful of my opinion and views as you want yours to be respected.

    • Fair enough. I don’t think that is going on and most pro-gay-rights gays (including me) understand that there’s a difference between opposing gay marriage and hating gay people. The real problem is that David Benham specifically called gay people “demonic”. I think that crossed a line.

      Here’s an actual audio recording of a radio broadcast he participated in. You may not buy the venue (RWW is unfair to conservatives, sure) but if you buy the authenticity of the broadcast- or even if you don’t but accept that many of us do- you’ll understand why we think Benham crossed the line and how this is different than mere political opposition:

      • Acts of homosexuality are demonic. What do you think was happening at Sodom and Gommorah? They didn’t want Lots daughters, they wanted the men, the messengers of God sent out to them. And all of Sodom and Gommorah was destroyed. What do think God meant when he said a man shall not lie with a man as with a woman? You can reject God and his teaching; but when he says something is an abomination, as a believer we are required to teach and warn the same. How can you say you love someone and not try warn them that their actions will lead them straight to hell. That instead of having a good time and partying, we are on knees praying for these people. And that is not just Gays it’s all sin. It separates us from God.

        • >What do you think was happening at Sodom and Gommorah?

          I think that water levels in the Dead Sea were higher, salt was forming into pillars, and 1000 years later Jewish rabbis were trying to explain why there were salt pillars and said… uhhh “Lot’s wife!” There are aspects of the New Testament that make it a historical account of something amazing happening in Jerusalem and there are aspects of the Old Testament that make it sound much like any other creation myth. There were these bad people that tried to rape some angels, and God destroyed their city.

          Back then these salt pillars weren’t really accessible to ancient people, but today, we can see them forming:

          >What do think God meant when he said a man shall not lie with a man as with a woman?

          The same thing he meant in the same book- Leviticus- that the difference between rape and marriage was a dowry.

          >You can reject God and his teaching

          You can reject reality, too. Reality is that homosexuality has a physical explanation and has been documented in fruit fly studies at UIC and brain scan studies in Denmark.

          Augustine actually dealt with this same issue 1600 years ago when he was debating the existence of the antipodes (other continents) with other Christians. He claimed that a literal interpretation of the Great Commandment meant they *could not* exist, but that if this was proven wrong in plain view for everyone to see, then we must have misinterpreted this part of the Bible.

      • Thank you for your clarification and the links. I see your point of view. We all have made stupid remarks one time or the other. And I think this was just a stupid remark on their part, and not a malicious one. What I got out was the Benhams think the gays are possessed by demons and it is their duty to exorcise the demons out of the gays. I don’t think they were directly inferring that the gays are demonic. They made it clear that they don’t hate homosexuals (whether they are being honest or not is another issue). The media mischaracterized what they said. Regardless, I still disagree with their thoughts that gays are gays because of some demonic possession. This reminds me of the old days where crazy people were once thought to be possessed by demons. We now know that was stupid. Similarly, it is stupid of the Benhams to think this way. I can also see why the gay community was upset over this. Peace be with you, brother.

  113. So much for our “Freedom of Religion” clause in The Constitution. Does HGTV not know that they have broken the law?

    • How has HGTV broken the law? The Benhams are being fired because David Benham went on the radio and railed against “demonic” homosexuals. If you publicly and brutally alienate 10% of your company’s customer base, you should not be surprised when your company fires you.

      The first amendment provides for freedom of speech, religion, association, and the press, among other things. The Benhams are free to claim they are Christian (Freedom of Religion), they are free to quite literally demonize gays (Freedom of Speech), RWW is free to call them out for this (Freedom of the Press), and when a bunch of pissed off gay customers stop doing business with a channel that promotes these people, HGTV has a right to not associate with them (Freedom of Association).

      • Obviously you did not hear the bible teaching at a prayer meeting. He railed against no one. The tape is available, go listen. He spoke of all sin, all sexual sin, and abortion, and greed covetousness. He has a right to speak of his faith and it’s tenets on his private time. Not only that a thorough background and the tape were already vetted by HGTV. They fired them for something they already knew. And Wisconsin you have a right not believe. I don’t like all the homosexual programming on HGTV, it is quite in your face, but I tolerate it. People have a right to reject to God’s laws. Faith is free to accept or reject. Why can’t you respect that. Or does respect only go one way?

      • If they railed against his company, then they had the right to terminate him – but if he was only quoting the Bible they did not have that right. He has just as much right to his opinion as those who promote homosexuality. What kind of country are we living in when we can’t have our religious freedom! Many people told me years ago, back when we were still having our little bible readings at the beginning of school day, that there would be a time when we would not be allowed prayer (or anything else Godly) in our schools. That would be the beginning of the anti Christ. I didn’t believe it, but recent actions has made a believer out of me. Our faith has been forbidden and our religious freedom has been denied and all in the name of religious freedom. What a Crock!

        btw, Maybe it’s crazy but when God says something is wrong, I believe it, however, I also believe people have the right to be wrong.

        • >but if he was only quoting the Bible they did not have that right.

          Actually, there is no Bible verse that has homosexuality and demons or demonic agendas in the same verse.

          >What kind of country are we living in when we can’t have our religious freedom!

          You have the right to religious freedom; your company has the right to fire you if you piss off their customers. If you don’t like it, start your own business.

          >btw, Maybe it’s crazy but when God says something is wrong, I believe it, however, I also believe people have the right to be wrong.

          God also says that divorce is wrong and that remarriage is adultery. How many divorced friends do you have? And do you treat them the same way you treat gays for sexual immorality of roughly the same level?

          • Divorce is not wrong if a spouse is unfaithful or if a spouse is physically or sexually abusive to any family member. If this offending spouse dies, the remaining spouse is then free to remarry according to God. If a husband divorces his wife who is not wishing to divorce and that husband later dies, she is then free to remarry according to God. Murdering the offending spouse does not qualify for remarriage according to God.

            Also, divorce is not called an abomination by God, yet same-sex deviancy is. Divorced people who remarry contrary to scripture are not called an abomination by God. Practicing same-sex deviants are always an abomination according to God. For that reason, Christians should not equate divorce with same-sex perversion. However, you are right in that those Christians who divorce and remarry while their previous spouse is alive are not obeying a direct command of God. They have sinned in doing so and will answer to God. Nevertheless, there is a level of grace accorded to them if sought. Our personal policy with close friends and/or family that have disobeyed God concerning divorce is to confront them with the fact they have sinned and make sure that they are fully aware of that fact. Since turning around and divorcing again would be as much of a sin, they are forced to live with their mistake and ask God’s forgiveness with the realization that the same mistake will NOT be repeated ever again. You know…..go and sin no more!

          • Jesus said clearly that it’s only acceptable in the case of adultery. (Matthew 19:9) Otherwise, divorce and remarriage is adultery- and is worthy of the same punishment as homosexuality (death by stoning) under the law as told by Jesus.

            Irony of ironies, out of all the talking Jesus could have done about gays (living in the Roman empire and all), he never mentions a thing and instead goes after divorce- and the religious establishment.

            As for the “abomination” claim, lying is also an abomination (Prov. 6). So is offering an injured animal as a sacrifice (Deut 17.) Abomination is an overused term at best and really carries no special meaning.

          • Jesus Christ: ‘And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH’?

            “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of the water by the word, That He might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth it, even as the Lord the church” (Ephesians 5:25-29). If a spouse is physically abusive to the point of endangering life or sexually abusing the children, they are not loving as Christ loved the church.

            Of course lying is an abomination, never stated otherwise. ‘Divers weights, [and] divers measures, both of them [are] alike abomination to the LORD.’ ‘These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.’ ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.’ ‘If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.’ ‘The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.’ ‘For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.’ And so on. Fact is, same-sex perversion is an abomination, like it or not. There are only about thirty-seven recorded acts that are abominations in the eyes of God…..hardly an ‘overused term’ and one that certainly carries great meaning.

          • You state: ‘How many divorced friends do you have?’ Between close friends and family, I know about five that have divorced, one friend and four family members, extended included. Divorce is not at an all time high among Christians as you seem to fancy them to be. ‘A Harvard-trained researcher spent the last eight years trying to get to the bottom of the data on broken marriages — and the results might shock you. We’ve all heard the statistic that half of all marriages end in divorce. Not so fast, says Feldhahn, who lays out the argument in her new book (The Good News about Marriage) that the actual divorce rate isn’t even close to that number.

            Like most sociologists, Shaunti says she’s “stood up on stage and said every one of those wrong statistics.” Now, she’s on a mission to correct those assumptions. If anything, she points out, the divorce rate is dropping. “First-time marriages: probably 20 to 25% have ended in divorce on average,” she explains. “There is no such thing as a 50% divorce rate. It’s never been close. Right now,” she tells Billy Hallowell of The Blaze, “…72% of people are still married to their first spouse — that’s Census Bureau data.”

            At the very least, Feldhahn estimates, the divorce rate is 27-50% lower than people think. “Starting in the 1970s — that’s when those projections started — when no fault divorce started, the divorce rate skyrocketed. Suddenly, there was this explosion in divorce… it has fallen according to the crude divorce rate… 32% since 1980.”

            What’s more, she says the comparisons between the church and general society are an absolute myth. “The divorce rate dropped by 27% between those who went to church last week.” One of Shaunti’s favorite things is shocking people with the news that 80% of marriages are happy.’
            My marriage is one of them – 26 joyous years and counting.

    • firing someone for expressing his religious belief is illegal,. Also the comment on divorce – divorce is not forbidden. It is frowned upon and God did not destroy a nation because of divorce

  114. And be sure that if you make a comment on HGTV the leftist trolls and haters will burn up your post replies and fill your messages with offensive stuff. There’s no room for another opinion for the “hate speech” crowd!
