A week after their show got axed by HGTV, brothers and business owners David and Jason Benham are still making headlines.

But instead of defending their reputation, they’re now using each interview to share their Christian faith.

“We feel as though God wants us to actually stand up, lift Him up — lift up His standard, silence this bully and lift up the banner of Jesus Christ in this situation. So that’s our goal right now,” Jason told CBN News.

The twins say that bully is an agenda from some militant gay groups and others on the left bearing down on America in what some describe as a “silencing war” on religious freedom.

“We do feel compelled by God that we need to point this nation back to our foundation in Jesus Christ,” David told CBN News. “We need to point this nation back to the fact that we do have religious freedom and religious liberty and the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press and freedom of expression.”

“And that any agenda that would seek to silence anyone on either side of any issue, for any matter, that forces them back into a closet, we’ve got to stand against that,” he continued. “And it’s Christians that have be the salt and the light of the earth to lead the way in this charge.”

On May 7, HGTV canceled the brothers’ reality show “Flip It Forward” because of complaints about their Christian faith.

The network’s decision came after the website Right Wing News, which is funded by the liberal People for the American Way, published some of David’s past comments regarding his pro-life and pro-traditional marriage views.

“Where we are in terms of national sin, where we approve of what God disapproves of, when we do that it will ultimately get to the point where that sin will become an agenda that not only dominates and permeates, but it seeks to assassinate anyone who speaks out against it. That’s where we are as a nation,” David said.

Surprisingly, they lay the blame for the nation’s moral decay on the Church.

“We have more churches in America than we have ever had,” David noted. “Just in our city alone we have 1,300 churches, and yet we’re aborting millions of boys and girls — little image bearers of God.”

“We can’t keep just having church and allow this to happen and think that the blessing of God is going to be on our nation,” he warned.

While they’ve endured nasty criticism, they say they’ve also been encouraged by the support they’ve received both online and in person.
