No one must be beyond the reach of the thought police.
Via Daily Caller:
I only know two things about Chip and Joanna Gaines: 1) My mom is obsessed with their HGTV show, and 2) Chip is a big doofus and apparently the luckiest man alive. Home-renovation shows aren’t really my thing, but they seem like a nice couple and they do nice things for people. Look up the word “nice” in the dictionary and you’ll see a picture of those two, surprising you with how wonderfully they’ve renovated it.
But they’re also devout Christians. So, of course, they must be destroyed. Kate Aurthur at BuzzFeed has the grim, socially unjust details:
Their church, Antioch Community Church, is a nondenominational, evangelical, mission-based megachurch. And their pastor, Jimmy Seibert, who described the Gaineses as “dear friends” in a recent video, takes a hard line against same-sex marriage and promotes converting LGBT people into being straight.
So are the Gaineses against same-sex marriage? And would they ever feature a same-sex couple on the show, as have HGTV’s House Hunters and Property Brothers? Emails to Brock Murphy, the public relations director at their company, Magnolia, were not returned. Nor were emails and calls to HGTV’s PR department.
