    Benham brothers lose HGTV show after 'anti-gay' remarks

    (CNN) -- Twin brothers David and Jason Benham have lost their opportunity to host their own HGTV show.
    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.
    The site posted a recording of Benham talking to a talk show host about "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation" and "demonic ideologies" taking hold in colleges and public schools.
    Benham also discusses the fight for North Carolina's Amendment One, which involved a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state constitution.

    Their father is quoted as making pro-Nazi statements. Guess the apple does not fall far from the tree.

    I'm glad HGTV ax'd them. If they had not, then the money they would have raked in would have gone right to the anti-gay, anti-same sex marriage crusades.

    It's easy for these guys to say they don't 'hate' anyone but I'm pretty much over the 'hate the sin and love the sinner' approach some of these guys take.

    Denying them civil rights to me equates to hatred and campaigning against the right for gays to marriage is showing your hatred, whether it's in the name of your god or not!

    On CNN last night they showed a poll where 52% supported HGTV canceling the show and 48% opposed it. It might seem with the near 50/50 division that it was a risky decision, but I think it was the correct decision for HGTV. HGTV's audience is not the US population as a whole, but something more specialized than that and likely centered more heavily into that 52%.
