Fixer Upper Stars Under Fire for Attending Evangelical Church. Updated

Todd Starnes

"One of my guilty pleasures in life is to watch Fixer Upper marathons on HGTV.

"Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines have not only made Waco, Texas a tourist destination, but they’ve also educated us about the many uses of shiplap.

"If you aren’t a fan of the show, you might want to Google that.

"I also appreciate that Chip and Joanna are devout Christians. Viewers can see how their faith flavors not only their television program – but also their family life.

"But not everyone appreciates those Christian beliefs – especially the militant LGBT crowd.

"And now, they are on the warpath.

"The Mainstream Media and militant LGBT activists are unleashing their fury over reports the Gaines family attends Antioch Community Church, a non-denominational megachurch." . . .
UPDATE: Chip and Joanna Gaines Under Fire for Maybe Having the ‘Wrong’ Views on LGBT Issues
. . . "Ah, but as BuzzFeed points out, it doesn’t appear that the Gaineses have featured a same-sex couple on their show. (I haven’t seen every show, but I’m unaware of any time they have featured a same-sex couple.) I don’t know why they haven’t. But one thing to keep in mind is … maybe not a lot of same-sex couples have even applied to be on the show? After all, as Gallup pointed out in 2015, fewer than 4 percent of Americans identify as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender)." . . .

Buzzfeed’s Bullying Over Christian Values Isn’t Working Out Like They Planned  . . . "No, the story is about Chip and Joanna Gaines. Two Christians who attend a Christian church and believe Christian things. This is a writer at BuzzFeed openly attacking and publicly trying to shame a Christian couple who have a presence in the media. And, this is not new. It isn’t new to BuzzFeed and it isn’t new to journalism in general. And it’s a damn shame, too." . . .
