Anti-Gay Benham Brothers: We Are Like ISIS Victims

The anti-gay Benham Twins, David and Jason, continue to make the rounds of their pity parade following HGTV's decision not to air their real estate development series after their anti-gay activism came to light. 

This time the pair has decided that their struggle is right up there with the victims of ISIS in the Middle East. You know, the people that were beheaded. Totally the same. 

“There is a radical agenda that has come in our nation. The weapon of choice for the agenda in the Middle East is a sword, but the weapon of choice for the agenda in America is silence. They demand silence.”

Right Wing Watch provides video; see what else the brothers had to say about being "silenced" here in the U.S.:

Have silent people ever whined so much? Thoughts on their comments, Instincters?

I don't understand this is on your site. this isn't anti-gay. They're just stating their beliefs. We all have them. They weren't bashing anyone either. I disagree that they feel they're being told to be silent about how they believe. I don't think anyone should be silent about what they believe. They should just be respectful of others' beliefs.

Two handsome corn-fed religious fanatic white boys reading tweets from cell phones from a podium with a mic in front of a camera while talking about a radical agenda intended to silence them. Actually, no boys, there is no radical agenda to silence you. You just aren't getting your own TV show.

I  snort laughed at how ludicrous these boys are.

All they need is some good old fashioned cock in their mouths to shut them up. :D
Silly little creatures don't know what they are talking about.

A good way for them to have their heads examined would be to behead them and look inside to see if there is anything in there.  That would also justify their comparison to victims of ISIS.

I am for people having their opinions. It is what makes America America. It can also lead to great conversations, develop friendships, and open doors to understanding another persons way of thinking. I get religion and its vent on LGBT. I get that it is skewed from the actual theme of the Bible, but there are verses in the good book, that can be taken literally in context of this situation. (Or that situation, or that situation, or whatever you pin it to)

That aside.......

I cannot believe these two comparing their getting taken off the air, to people in another country being tortured and killed. Honestly that is just a very very sick comparison. People there are being murdered in the name of some ass hat groups belief, non military personnel, and these two are comparing their loss of a TV show to that. Did I miss America's fall into total stupidity?

You can believe in whatever magic fairy sky friends you like.  I don't care how you waste your time, as long as you don't hurt others.  But when you use your fairytale beliefs to try and make my life miserable and "lesser", that's when you're going to have a fight on your hands.  Religious people better start learning this lesson.

This is not a free speech or freedom of religion issue. HGTV's business model is to sell advertising to fund their television shows and make a profit. The amount they charge for the adds depends on how many viewers watch the show. If an entertainer does something to alienate their audience and the number of viewers go down,HGTV's add revenue goes down. At some point they have to cancel he show, or in this case not risk airing it. If the Benham brothers are victims of anything, it's the business model of "free television." The first amendment prohibits the government from stopping anyone from saying anything they want, but it doesn't prohibit the rest of us from using our right of free speech to call out people like the Benhams for what they said. And that may have consequences the Benhams don't like.

As for the Benhams comparing themselves to victims of ISIS, this is beyond ridiculous. As far as I know, no one has ordered them to convert to Islam or face death.

"There is a radical agenda in this country..." Jesus was a radical you fucktard. People like you crucified him. So think twice before comparing you getting fired because of your ignorant buffoonery to the Son of your God being nailed to a wooden cross for your sins. It's not the same thing. And it's not a good look. Also, you both look like fags.

I think it's time that we left these poor, victimised guys alone. They clearly have some mental health issues and need their heads examined!

Anyone in this country, especially two privileged people who probably are worth quite a bit, who thinks they have anything in common with innocents being thrown out of their homes and face the possibility of a martyr's death, is delusional. 

To those who believe these guys are closet cases, you're probably correct.

If only they could be ISIS victims. That way we wouldn't have to listen to this garbage dressed as spirituality. They are not victims of ISIS. Just an American version of them.

They are so yesterday that they should keep their mouths shut and go into oblivion. There is absolutely nothing else they can say that will get them back on TV stardom. Get over yourselves.
