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.
