The Benham twins’ reality show was canned by Home & Garden TV officials this week, but after Right Wing Watch revealed David Benham’s anti-gay, anti-Muslim and anti-abortion views, http://flipthisdecision.com/|a petition for the Benham brothers, which as of this writing has nearly 13,000 signatures.

"We are brokering a possible deal between them and their show and an alternative network to HGTV," Faith Driven Consumer founder Chris Stone, said. "Whether it’s HGTV or the network we’re talking about, we want to see them on TV."

Stone, however, declined to say which networks are talking to the twins.

The Benham brothers told "The O’Reilly Factor" host Bill O’Reilly that their HGTV pulled the plug on their show, "Flip it Forward" because of their conservative views on same-sex marriage and abortion. They also said they feel HGTV was "bullied" into canceling the program.

"We’re not victims. We’re not crying," David Benham said. "Thumbs up the HGTV."

The twins made similar comments on CNN Thursday, hours after HGTV canceled their reality show.

    Works for me. Let them go to some other ignorant network viewed by so called Christians for a show.

    Notice--"declined to say what networks are talking to the twins". Meaning--NO networks are talking to the twins! This is just a pathetic attempt to save face.
