Conservative Christians are being targeted in the United States for their beliefs and need to stand up and thrive amid adversary, David and Jason Benham told Fox and Friends
The twin brothers, whose HGTV reality show was cancelled two years ago before even one episode was aired due to their opposition to gay marriage, were promoting their newly released book, "Living Among Lions: How to Thrive like Daniel in Today's Babylon,"
which describes how Christians can be an example in today's world by learning the lessons of the biblical Daniel.
"We see Christians in America and conservatives kind of running because there is a narrative that's now been developed in this country that really targets people of faith," the brothers said. "And people of faith often times want to be silent. And now is not the time to be silent. When darkness rises, it's time to turn the light on."
The brothers said they wrote the book "to encourage Christians to stand up and to be strong, [because when] "we have Jesus Christ inside of us, we have the light of the world."
The Benham brothers have publicly supported numerous conservative issues. The Christian Post reports
that in May they criticized President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom order to public schools that boys can use girls bathrooms and locker rooms if they identify as female, calling it "a loophole for deviant men to go in and prey upon our women and girls."
