HGTV pulled the plug last year on its plans for a reality series “Flip It Forward” starring two brothers, David and Jason Behman, after they compared same-sex marriage to Nazi Germany and who took part in rallies against LGBT and reproductive rights.
The duo have since become Christian celebrities after comparing losing their proposed reality TV show to religious martyrdom.
It turns out, David has even found a cure for gay men who want to become straight Christians, according to TheBlaze.
Similarly, the Benhams shared during their National Religious Broadcasters convention speech a specific interaction that they recently had with an unidentified gay man who vocally opposed their stance on homosexuality.
“We had so many people from the gay community reaching out to us and one man in particular from the city of Chicago reached out — and he said things to me that made me lose my appetite,” David Benham told the crowd during a panel discussion about religious liberty. “But I simply responded in love.”
And that positive tone went well beyond merely listening and speaking with kindness.
“After a little conversation back and forth, I found out he loved baseball … and I got him tickets to a Cubs game,” Benham continued. “He shot me a Facebook post and said, ‘I was not expecting that — and I’ve been thinking a lot about this. I’ve chosen to walk away from my lifestyle.’”
The story received a round of applause from the audience and the brothers proceeded to discuss their take on religious freedom, their belief that the nation has begun to “slowly turn our back on God” and the need for Americans to boldly stand up and defend their faith.
