Brothers David and Jason are just TOO Christian
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “Now there are groups out there that are dedicated to monitoring who it is that’s being hired in any position of public station whatever. They’re doing background checks on those individuals and then will produce reports and begin the extortion. Just look for this to escalate, by the way. In this instance here, we found out these guys showed up at an abortion clinic and tried to talk some woman out of murdering her baby. Oh, no, not that! We can’t have that on Home & Garden Television.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: Here’s the story:
HGTV had announced a new series, “Flip It Forward,” planned for October, starring twins David and Jason Benham.
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 forever home — with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way,” said HGTV in the April announcement.
But on Wednesday (May 7), quietly, in a tweet, HGTV said the show will not be happening: “HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.”
“If our faith costs us a television show,” the brothers said in a statement on Thursday, “then so be it.” [Mike: If there were only so many that were so eager to accept this mild dose of martyrdom, we would not be in the pickle that we are in today.]
According to Towleroad.com, that HGTV was alerted to a Tuesday story by RightWingWatch.org, which looked into the background of the Benham brothers and found them to be “anti-gay, anti-Choice extremists.”

There’s a 3×5 index card, as Tom Woods likes to say. On the 3×5 index card, there are certain opinions that you are supposed to have. If you have an opinion and it’s not on the 3×5 index card, well, you can’t work in broadcasting. You can’t work in media. We’re not going to let you.
What’s going to happen here, ladies and gentlemen, is that the people that are conspiring and perpetrating these things are going to find out in a very short amount of time — I think, anyway, they’re going to find out — that those that they are aggravating, those that they are persecuting, and the decrepit and depraved things that they do accept over the things that they will not accept — as in this case somebody protesting at an abortion clinic to stop the killing of a soon-to-be-born American child. Even better than that, a soon-to-be-born prospective viewer for HGTV. They’re going to find out that their ploy is going to backfire on them. I like to call this boomerang smack. You’re going to throw this boomerang out there. You don’t think it’s a boomerang; you think it’s a dart. [mocking] “Got you, Christian boy. Haha! You’re not going to work on this network, pal. Those Jesus-centered views, get out of here.” People of faith, and maybe some that even aren’t of faith, and see what is going on here and see the hypocrisy and then are regaled by the filth and vulgarity that is served up by these same media companies are just going to start turning it off. You know what, folks? Just turn it off. You don’t need it. Turn it off.
