HGTV Cancels Show After Stars Revealed to Be Anti-Gay, Anti-Abortion, Anti-Muslim Extremists

Benhams

HGTV today tweeted that it "has decided not to move forward" with a new house-flipping show called Flip It Forward starring David and Jason Benham. The network's move comes one day after Right Wing Watch wrote a lengthy post exposing the Benham family's extreme anti-gay activism.

Wrote RWW in the post:

What the announcement didn't mention is that at least one of the Benhams is not just a real estate dealer but also a dedicated right-wing activist in the mold of his father, Flip Benham, who has headed the abortion-clinic protest group Operation Save America ever since it split from the militant anti-choice group Operation Rescue.

As leader of OSA, [Flip] Benham has condemned the interfaith Sandy Hook memorial, protested in front of mosques while shouting “Jesus Hates Muslims” and blamed the Aurora shooting on the Democratic Party, which he said promotes a “culture of death.”

He has also protested LGBT pride events, interrupted church services during a sermon by “sodomite Episcopalian bishop” Gene Robinson and was found “guilty of stalking a Charlotte abortion doctor after passing out hundreds of ‘wanted’ posters with the physician's name and photo on it.” Benham even blamed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on abortion rights.

Also:

Flip's son, David Benham, led a prayer rally — Charlotte 7:14 — outside of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2012, 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”

...David also discussed his work to pass North Carolina’s Amendment One, which enshrined a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state constitution.

Apparently HGTV had not done their homework on the Benhams.


'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' Star Porsha Williams Apologizes For Anti-Gay Sermon

Williams

Porsha Williams, one of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta — who recently went to jail after brawling with another housewife during the show’s reunion episode — has apologized for a three-year-old sermon in which she lists homosexuality alongside other “inequities” like prostitution, drug dealing and attempted suicide.

Porsha_williamsIn the video taken from High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, Georgia, Williams said:

“God was gonna send his son, his holy son — don’t take that for granted. How many of y’all would just give somebody your son, or your daughter? But he did that for us. And he did that because of our inequities. So don’t let the devil tell you ain’t worth your God's blessings. He wants to use you no matter what.

“That’s why we Christians supposed to be telling the hooker on the street, the drug dealer, the person who in the hospital for trying to commit suicide, the gays, the lesbians. We’re supposed to be trying to save them and tell them 'You are worthy! God can use you, God can use me.' He gonna use humility!

“You need to tell the world how you lived your life at first. Y’all ain’t perfect. But you gonna pay for it if you do. Live for God, stand on his word. Don’t just read it and keep it for yourself.”

Williams soon apologized in a video-recording, saying:

"I woke up this morning disturbed and I felt that my heart was heavy and it was imperative for me to address the issue at hand. First let me say that God loves all his children. And although discriminate against other because of their race, their religion, their sexual orientation, their status in life, that we’re all worthy of God’s love. The sermon that was shown was shown not in its entirety therefore the message was omitted. I apologize that those words hurt the LGBT community, my fans and my supporters. Life is a journey and I’m growing every day. And I continue to encourage everyone to love each other unconditionally."

Housewives co-star Cynthia Bailey had criticized Williams' sermon, saying, "To put gays and lesbians in the same category as drug dealers, hookers, and people who attempt suicide is ignorant and insensitive. Especially when she just recently profited from performing at a popular gay club in NYC." The NYC club in question was the gay Harlem nightclub El Morocco where Williams performed on May 2.

Oprah To Lindsay Lohan: 'Cut The B.S.' – VIDEO

Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey

Thanks to Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, Lindsay Lohan has been given another chance at repairing her public image via a reality show/documentary series titled Lindsay. However, the starlet who once couldn't go two minutes without being in photographs and tabloids is finding that sobriety has her shying away from the camera and shirking her responsibilities to the show. It finally got to the point where Winfrey herself had to fly in and have a sit-down with Lohan and set her straight...and the kid gloves came off.

O: [M]y truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do. If that isn't what you want, I'm OK with that. You know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today.

L: No, it's not that I'm not ready to do that, I do want to.

O: You need to cut the bulls--t.

At a different point in the discussion, Winfrey even pulled out the f-bomb:

O: I believe that you believe that this is your time to turn this around for yourself. I believe that. I believed you when you told me that.

L: It is.

O: OK. Alright. If that is the case, then you're not going to be f--king up.

You can watch Oprah give Lindsay her much-needed talking-to, foul language and all, AFTER THE JUMP...

The Sportsman Channel just unveiled the trailer for Amazing America with Tina Fey Julianne Moore Sarah Palin, and it’s got everything “real Americans” could want out of a reality show — wrasslin’, car racin’, shootin’, sleddin’, duck callin', taxidermy, plastic wildlife and a man being trampled by a bull — you betcha!

And all of this, ladies and gentlemen, is hosted by the Chick Fil-A eatin’, Duck Dynasty watchin’ former Miss Alaska who almost became the Vice President of the United States. Yes, let that settle in for a bit. Thanks a lot, John McCain.

We wonder if Palin’s rumored gay BFF will make an appearance. We'd watch the heck out of that.
