Bishop T.D. Jakes on Benhams: HGTV made a 'business decision'

Is faith under attack in the United States?

That's what brothers David and Jason Benham believe.

HGTV is canceling their reality show "Flip it Forward" after a controversial report surfaced on the website "Right Wing Watch" that labeled David Benham as an "anti-gay, anti-choice extremist."

HGTV is not commenting on their decision.

CNN's Erin Burnett spoke to the Benham brothers Thursday night about their comments and why HGTV pulled the plug on their show.

"Never have I ever spoken against homosexuals, as individuals, and gone against them," David Benham said. "I speak about an agenda. And that's really what the point of this is - is that there is an agenda that is seeking to silence the voices of men and women of faith."
