Two brothers who were recently fired by HGTV after their anti-gay views came to light said this week that they had been silenced by a "demonic agenda."

In an interview on Monday, The Blaze's Glenn Beck told Jason and David Benham that the same "agenda" that had forced them out for comparing same-sex marriage to Nazism was now celebrating gay football player Michael Sam.

Jason Benham pointed out, however, that the LGBT community would destroy Sam as soon as he "changes his lifestyle."

David Benham argued that they had been attacked by the same "spirit" that had been "punching nations since the beginning of time."

Beck agreed, and connected that spirit back to Nazism in "eastern Europe and Germany."

"We're headed down the book-burning road," Beck warned.

Jason Benham remarked that the "homosexual community" was not the enemy: "No, it's God vs. the Devil."

"And there's a small number of people in this world that buy into the idea of this agenda that wants to silence people," he opined.

"We are called to restrain evil so that good may flourish," David Benham remarked. "Don't force yourself on anyone. Don't force your beliefs. That's why we have the freedom of religion, and the freedom of speech, the freedom of expression, and the freedom of press, is because of this faith that is outlined in the Bible."

"We now have the opportunity as a people -- right now in 2014 -- to say, okay, let's return back, let's go back to our foundations," he added. "I'm not saying that you can't be a homosexual or an adulterous heterosexual."

"What we're talking about right now on one of our talking points is that fact that we are Americans. This polarizing in which we live is being operated by a demonic agenda to suppress the truth."

David Benham later reminded Beck about the story of an evil biblical sorcerer who owned a donkey, and he noted that the Democratic Party also used a donkey as its symbol.
