HGTV (Home & Garden Television) announced on Wednesday that the network “decided not to move forward” with the reality show “Flip It Forward” which starred brothers David and Jason Benham. The move came after it was revealed that David Benham led a prayer rally in North Carolina and later revealed that the rally was needed to stop “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation” and “demonic ideologies tak[ing] our universities and our public school systems.” Today, the brothers have replied to the accusations of extremism:

"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," continued the statement from David and Jason Benham. "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." The brothers, however, are seemingly against a number of issues including abortion: a YouTube video from May 2013 shows David Benham protesting outside of an abortion clinic proclaiming,“God will close these clinics.”
