"We had so many people from the gay community reaching out to us and one man in particular from the city of Chicago reached out -- and he said things to me that made me lose my appetite. But I simply responded in love."

"After a little conversation back and forth, I found out he loved baseball... and I got him tickets to a Cubs game. He shot me a Facebook post and said, 'I was not expecting that -- and I've been thinking a lot about this. I've chosen to walk away from my lifestyle'... What God needs most is a simple voice for truth."

-- David Benham -- whose planned HGTV home renovation show with twin brother Jason was canceled last year after their long history of anti-LGBT, anti-Muslim, and anti-woman activism was exposed -- speaking last week to the National Religious Broadcasters in Nashville.
