Just as God punished Israel for sacrificing their sons and daughters to the demons in Psalm 106, Jason and David Benham argued Saturday that America is already being punished by God for allowing the rise of abortion to kill nearly 60 million innocent babies in the last 40-plus years.

The Benham Brothers, former minor league baseball players who gained conservative prominence after their HGTV reality show “Flip it Forward” was nixed in 2014 due to liberal outrage over their conservative beliefs on gay marriage, spoke at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority Conference” and urged Christians to wake up and lead a social reformation in America.

Speaking primarily about the transgender bathroom issue that has swept the nation following North Carolina passing a law earlier this year that struck down a transgender bathroom ordinance in Charlotte, the North Carolina natives said that the reason why the Left has been able to push transgender bathroom laws is because the Church had fallen asleep.

Jason Benham compared the Church’s response to the Left’s transgender bathroom push to a life-threatening moment when his brother fell asleep behind the wheel during a long road trip.

“David was in the right spot. He had his hand on the wheel and we were actually moving forward but we were just going in the wrong direction because he was asleep. When you are asleep, you are unaware of what is going on around you,” Jason Benham said. “Now, all of us are having to deal with this radical bathroom stuff. It was while the church was asleep and now God is calling us, He’s calling you, He is calling Christians to say ‘Ok, wake up.'”

Toward the end of their 15-minute speech, the Benhams touched on the issue of abortion and asserted that the widespread murder of babies remains largely ignored by Christians even though “God gave us an incredible picture of what is truly happening behind the veil of Planned Parenthood.”

“We as a Church need to wake up and bring the culture back to the almighty God,” David Benham contended.
