Twin brothers David and Jason Benham on
Monday told Glenn Beck that gays are being used by Satan to silence
Last week, HGTV decided against moving
forward with a reality series already in production starring the
Benham brothers. While the network has not discussed its reasons, it
acted less than 24 hours after Right Wing Watch issued a report on
the brothers' anti-gay activism.
The brothers have stated in various
appearances that they love gays but oppose the “gay agenda,” and
that they were the victims of a “smear campaign.”
The fight was “spiritual,” not
“From the beginning of time, it was
God and there was the Devil and both of them use people for their own
purposes,” he said.
David explained that if Satan knows
that the “knowledge of the truth is what sets men free,” then he
must suppress the truth about Jesus Christ's message.
“If you say, 'The homosexual
community is the enemy and they're doing this.' No, it's not the
homosexual community. It's God versus the Devil,” Jason said.
“And there is a small minority of people in this world,
heterosexual or homosexual, that buy into the idea of this agenda
that wants to silence people.”
Christians, David added, are “called
to restrain evil so that good may flourish,” and “this polarized
environment in which we live is being operated by a demonic agenda to
suppress the truth.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit
