Video: Benham brothers say religious liberty is under attack, but the church must engage humbly

On Saturday, just 24 hours after backlash from the American people convinced SunTrust bank to reopen its partnerships with Benham REO Group, David and Jason Benham thanked supporters on their YouTube channel.

"We just wanted to say thank you. We were overwhelmed yesterday with this SunTrust debacle, and SunTrust heard from America. It was unbelievable what took place," David said in the video.

On May 15, the Benhams reported on social media that SunTrust had ended its partnership with their company due to their support for the unborn and traditional marriage. The next day, a backlash forced SunTrust to re-establish its relationship with the Benhams' company. SunTrust has denied that it ended the relationship with the Benhams, blaming a third-party vendor. The vendor, however, said the blame lay with SunTrust.

Likewise, David criticized Christian churches for not effectively holding to Christ's teachings. "Our message really is to the church," he said. "We're just praying that there's a supernatural gift of repentance to the church - in our own lives, in our own homes, in our churches - which will transform our churches and ultimately transform this nation."
