Time to check in with the ever-malignant Benham Brothers, those skin-crawly Christian bigots who think marriage equality is the worst thing to ever happen to America.
For the fortunate few who have yet to see their blandly attractive faces spew chirpy chunks of hate hither and yon, the twisted twins think Satan is behind homosexuality and lost their HGTV show Flip It Forward due to their extreme antigay rhetoric.
Not that they’ve learned their lesson.
This time, they’re plugging a new book about the how Christians can survive in a “cookie dough of culture” that has been poisoned by liberals, Pagans, atheists and–yes, indeed–gay people.
Earlier this week, the twins sat down with Fox & Friends to talk about their book and that time they were fired from their HGTV reality show for being homophobic.
When introducing the brothers, co-host Ainsley Earhardt told viewers, “HGTV cancelled the Benham Brothers home renovation show before it ever aired because of the brothers’ Christian and pro-life beliefs.”
She left out the part about how they blamed “homosexuality and its agenda” for “attacking the nation” and warned of “demonic ideologies” that are corrupting public schools.
During the interview, David said they wrote the new book “to encourage Christians to stand up and be strong because we have Jesus Christ inside of us, we have the light of the world.”
“People of faith oftentimes want to be silent,” he added, “and now is not the time to be silent when darkness rises, it’s time to turn the light on.”
Then Earhardt asked about the reality show. Without getting into specifics, Jason replied by saying a “media firestorm” was ignited, causing “networks to stay away from us.” Then he cracked a joke about how network execs thought the brothers were “toxic.”
“Oh, you’re soooo toxic,” Earhardt giggled. “You’re teaching love.”
But things got especially nutty towards end of the interview, when Jason compared Christians to chocolate chips.
Granted, you can never go right with a cookie dough metaphor, but The Benham Brothers have really cooked up a dreadful doozy here:
“We’ve got to be the chocolate chips of the cookie dough of culture,” Jason said. “We mix in. We don’t blend in. And we keep our distinct form. Even when put into a furnace!”
“That means you’re the best part,” Earhardt purred in response.
Tee hee? Grotesqueries incarnate.
