Christians David and Jason Behnam lose HGTV show for their views on homosexuality

Two Christian brothers, David and Jason Behnam, were fired by HGTV for voicing their opinions, years earlier, about marriage that were based on biblical principles. A left wing group (rightwingwatch.org) posted an audio clip from a radio show where the Behnams had made comments about biblical values regarding marriage. Apparently, rightwingwatch knows better than they do since it claims the moral high ground and thought it proper to "expose" these Christians.  As a result, apparently the TV network did not appreciate the Behnam's personal values about traditional marriage and fired them from a reality show - though HGTV did not officially state their views were the reason.  David and Jason were shocked but said in an interview that they had decided to stand up for their morals.  They lost their show.

Don't you just love how the left at rightwingwatch.org decides what is morally right and wrong and goes after people who hold biblical values?  Personally, I would love to have a public debate with one of their representatives on the justification for their moral certitude. But, we all know that will never happen because the left doesn't risk serious examination. Instead, it sits in moral judgment and condemns those who don't bow to the politically correct agenda.

"The brothers ran afoul of the network after the site Right Wing Watch published a post about the pair, labeling David Benham as an "anti-gay, anti-choice extremist" for reportedly leading a prayer rally in 2012 outside of the Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte, North Carolina."1

Who would have thought that expressing your biblical values about marriage is somehow the morally wrong thing to do?  Now, the brothers whose show would've helped people buy homes that they otherwise might not be able to afford has been canceled.  Way to go "right wing watch."  Good call!

"An April press release described the planned show this way: "After a decade of flipping houses for profit, brothers David Benham and Jason Benham now help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford. In each episode, the guys help a deserving family find a fixer-upper and transform it into their forever home -- with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way."2

Way to go rightwingwatch, you leftist, self-righteous watchdogs.
