Apparently, LGBT activists just got the memo, after two years running, that the stars of the extremely popular program "Fixer Upper" are Christians and believe the biblical teaching of their church. "Fixer Upper" is not only insightful and educational, but uplifting and encouraging. I will admit that "Fixer Upper" is my favorite show currently on the air. It is clean and family-friendly, and I can watch with children in the same room without fear of what Chip or Joanna may say. It is a wholesome show that doesn't resort to vulgar behavior or crude language to be humorous. It is a show for all ages since Chip is such a likable character and their four adorable children are often guests on the program. I am also glad to see a celebrity, such as Joanna, who can dress modestly and be conservative. It is extremely refreshing to have individuals on television with morals and values.
The Gaines' Christian beliefs are no secret, but the LGBT community has decided to go after this family and their show. The church the couple attends with their family preaches homosexuality is a sin. Most Evangelical churches would preach this if they are preaching truth since Christians believe the Bible, and it clearly states homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:26-27). Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful behavior. The Gaines believe as does 1MM – and millions of other Christians – that marriage is between a man and a woman.
There is no reason for LGBT activists to be shocked that devout Christians such as the Gaines would believe what is taught in the Bible and at their church. This is a blatant attack attempting to bully the family, the HGTV network, the church, and their pastor. Homosexuality is not even a topic that is discussed on the show as it is a G rated program. An HGTV spokesperson told Todd Starnes in a statement they "respect the privacy of our show hosts and will not comment on matters related to their personal lives." Exactly, what Chip and Jo believe is their business.
Sign the petition to HGTV, thanking them for not caving in to the unreasonable demands of a handful of loud and hateful people.
Your signature will also show Chip and Joanna Gaines your support for them and their Christian faith.
