It’s not just BuzzFeed (and Cosmopolitan and US Weekly) riding on the “Slime Chip and Joanna Gaines” Train. Jezebel’s gotten in on it, too.
Here’s a post from two nights ago:

Jezebel’s Bobby Finger writes:
The Gaineses have never tried to hide their faith, nor should they feel pressured to. But their specific association with the Antioch Community Church, “a nondenominational, evangelical, mission-based megachurch,” should act as a nice slap in the face every time you’re won over by what appears to be a family bursting at the seams with wholesomeness.
Their pastor and “dear friend” Jimmy Seibert, reports BuzzFeed, “takes a hard line against same-sex marriage and promotes converting LGBT people into being straight.” He says “God is able to give us power over every sin, including homosexuality,” adding that it was God who “defined masculine and feminine, male and female, not you and I.”
No. I will not be buying a home in Waco and asking Magnolia to remodel it anytime soon. I can find an open floor plan somewhere else.
And wouldn’t you know it? Here’s a post from just this afternoon:

So their Christian faith makes Chip and Joanna Gaines fair game for a shameful, bigoted hit job. But Keith Ellison’s actual dirty laundry? Don’t you dare bring that up!
@back_ttys And they can't understand why this is intellectually dishonest. SMDH.

They don't value intellectual honesty.
