HGTV announced Wednesday that the recently unveiled real estate reality TV show, “Flip it Forward,” starring anti-gay activist David Benham and his twin brother Jason, will not move forward after all.

The announcement comes following a report by Right Wing Watch that David Benham is a conservative activist who has campaigned against LGBT equality and reproductive rights, following in the footsteps of his father, preacher Flip Benham, who has headed the abortion-clinic protest group Operation Save America.

In 2012, David Benham led a prayer rally outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., which he told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd 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”

He told Mefferd that his brother Jason joined him in organizing the DNC prayer protest.

 In a 2012 blog post on Operation Save America’s website, David Benham likened the fight against marriage equality to opposing Nazi Germany.
Later in 2012, he wrote in the Christian Post that marriage equality “erodes the moral fabric of our society” and “threaten(s) future generations.”

Following the Right Wing Watch report, HGTV said it was in the “process of reviewing all information about the Benhams.”

The announcement to cancel the show was made in a brief post on Twitter.

Some folks just won't be satisfied until every medium is wholly controlled by the left wing. Ve vill haff no opposing opinions hier! Even iff only about real estate!
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.

Indeed. Tolerance-- except for those who disagree with them, in which case, they must be silenced.
