In punishment for their adherence to their religious conscience and for causing offense to the hatred-filled bigots of the gay left, SunTrust bank abruptly severed its business relationship with the Benham Brothers.
SunTrust Banks is cutting ties with would-be reality stars David and Jason Benham after liberal activists attacked them for their conservative views on abortion and gay marriage, The Daily Caller has learned.
In a statement provided first to TheDC on Friday, the Benham brothers confirmed that SunTrust Banks has pulled all of its listed properties with the Benham brothers’ bank-owned property business, which includes several franchisees across four states.
The move comes just a week after HGTV announced it was canceling a planned home renovation show hosted by the brothers.
“If our faith costs us our HGTV show and our business, then so be it,” said Jason Benham on Friday.
As the Washington Post’s Johnathan Capehart says, there is no requirement for the progressive left to be tolerant of the Christian Right; who must be re-educated so that their views conform.
[T]olerance, no, is not – it should not be a two-way street. It’s a one-way street. You cannot say to someone that who you are is wrong, an abomination, is horrible, get a room, and all of those other things that people said about Michael Sam, and not be forced — not forced, but not be made to understand that what you’re saying and what you’re doing is wrong.
Update: SunTrust Bank may be backing down. Not because of tolerance for liberty or freedom of conscience; but because someone figured out that Christian-Bashing isn’t a good PR strategy for a bank located in the South.
