Jason Benham’s Son Worries: ‘Daddy, Please Stop Talking About Jesus – I Don’t Want Someone to Kill You’

In a tweet posted on Sunday, Jason Benham said his 11-year-old son was concerned that expressing one’s belief in Jesus Christ could put one in danger.

“So my 11 yr old says, ‘daddy, please stop talking about Jesus - I don't want someone to kill you.’ Yes, it's time for that conversation,” Benham tweeted.

Benham and his twin brother, David, are real estate developers and outspoken Christians, who regularly share their views on social media platforms.

The brothers first gained national recognition for being tapped by HGTV to host the “Flip it Forward” show focused on their real estate dealings, but the cable network canceled the show after a liberal media outlet reported that they are opposed to same-sex marriage and abortion.

On their website, benhambrothers.com, their take on the show’s cancellation is expressed in a banner across a photo of the brothers and their families playing tug-a-war.

“If our faith cost us a television show then so be it,” the banner states.
