HGTV drops show starring twins – one brother is accused of being anti-gay extremist

Twins David and Jason Benham had been set to star in their own show on HGTV beginning this fall helping families purchase homes they never thought they could afford.

Those plans have changed after the website Right Wing Watch published a post labeling David Benham as an ‘anti-gay, anti-choice extremist.’

The site posted a recording of the twin on a talk show host speaking about ‘homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation’ and also spoke about ‘demonic ideologies’ spreading in colleges and public schools.

There is also a YouTube video of David Benham speaking at the closing of an abortion clinic last year.

HGTV quickly responded to the report with this tweet: ‘HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers’ series.’

The brothers have released a statement saying they are ‘saddened’ by the 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.’
