'Duck Dynasty' II? Brothers lose HGTV show after antigay comments publicized

Two evangelical Christians who were supposed to host a new real estate show on HGTV have been ousted from the cable channel, after a website revealed that one of the men had made extensive comments condemning homosexuality. Twin brothers David and Jason Benham were set to host the HGTV show "Flip It Forward,” in which the buff, blond duo would "help families find a fixer-upper and transform it into the dream home they never thought they could afford,” according to HGTV’s description. But on Tuesday, the website Right Wing Watch posted a blog alleging that HGTV had tapped an “anti-gay, anti-choice extremist” for the new program. The post includes an audio clip from 2012 in which David Benham told a radio host that he was working to stop “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation,” and he referred to “demonic ideologies” in schools.
