Posted on 05/16/2014 10:49:43 AM PDT by upbeat5
First they lost their television show. Now the Benham brothers say they are losing their business.
SunTrust Banks is cutting ties with would-be reality stars David and Jason Benham after liberal activists attacked them for their conservative views on abortion and gay marriage, The Daily Caller has learned.
In a statement provided first to TheDC on Friday, the Benham brothers confirmed that SunTrust Banks has pulled all of its listed properties with the Benham brothers bank-owned property business, which includes several franchisees across four states.
The move comes just a week after HGTV announced it was canceling a planned home renovation show hosted by the brothers.
If our faith costs us our HGTV show and our business, then so be it, said Jason Benham on Friday.
We were caught off-guard with this one, David Benham said of SunTrusts actions. Keeping us off television wasnt enough, now this agenda to silence wants us out of the marketplace.
The Benhams, in their statement, said the news came without warning or explanation from SunTrust and took place over a 15 minute period on Thursday. The Brothers said they have had a mutually productive working relationship with SunTrust for many years and hold a preferred broker status with the bank.
The brothers said they contacted SunTrust, but bank employees declined to explain the reasoning for what happened.
Maybe Sun Trust can cut ties with Muslim vendors because of Muslim terrorism.
Good luck with tha Sun Trust.
I would but there is never anyone to talk too. Just the branch people who dont know anything.
Last time I asked to speak about a business loan they just laughed at me.
Yes, I’m in the process of moving my accounts.
God shall not be mocked. Just sayin’ ...
SunTrusts Coming Out
Its sensitivity training, so that everyone gets up to speed, says Kathy Meunier, a senior vice president at SunTrust who serves on the banks diversity council. We want to be more inclusive.
More thuggery. We are being ruled by thugs now, in all aspects of life. I am getting off here now this site has become very depressing.
Move to another bank, what’s the problem?
The thought control commissars are working overtime, if you hold deviant thoughts we will destroy you, no reeducation camp is needed. This is going to get really ugly sooner than I thought.
No problem. I just want them to know why.
God already sent a message to the US on 9/11/2001 and financial meltdown in 2008. Have our nation repented. We now embrace sodomy and persists in licentious behavior and now prosecute traditional values via social/economic mechanisms. God will not be mocked and IMHO will punish the US every seven years (2015) till we repent or destroyed.
If you're in Tampa tonight, be sure to look up!
The SunTrust Building in downtown Tampa will be lit in rainbow colors in recognition of Equality Florida's Tampa Gala.
Oops! The Gaystapo didn’t get a memo. Your suppose to have the police state up and running before you start doing this stuff. This will not end well for SunTrust. Somebody at Suntrust is in deep doodoo.
