HGTV cancelled Flip it Forward show Benham brothers

Apparently HGTV didn't learn from the backlash  from millions of Christians last year when A&E network banned Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty from the show for his Christian biblically based views. Today HGTV cancelled Flip it Forward, planned for October, starring twins David and Jason Benham according to many citations online possibly because of their Christian views. Earlier today Mike Huckabee posted about the cancellation and now the HGTV Facebook page is getting blow up with angry people tired of the hypocrisy of people claiming to be tolerant, but are really tolerant of anything except Christian views and beliefs.

Anthony Carrino star of Cousin's Undercover on HGTV wasted no time putting in his two cents in support of this risky move on HGTV's part. I say it's risky because A&E network reversed the decision regarding Phil Robertson. Less than 48 hours after Cracker Barrel pulled Phil Robertson merchandise it was back on the shelves. Interesting Carrino also pulled the hate card as well in his tweet. I watched several speaking engagements from Phil Robertson online and never got the impression he hated anybody, but rather didn't agree with their lifestyle based upon his Biblical beliefs. Judging from the comments on the HGTV facebook page, if I were Carrino I'd be laying low instead of blabbing my mouth on social media about a controversial subject!
What do you think? Are you tired of the mainstream media being "tolerant" of everything but Christians? Does it seem hypocritical to you? Let me know in the comments below!
