The Duggar Interview or should we just call it saving Josh at any cost

The Duggars love their children and they definately love their oldest son Josh. I watched the the Megyn Kelly interview and Jim Bob and Michelle have spent the better part of the interview minimizing the behavior of their oldest son. They concede he touched 5 girls inappropriately but let them tell it his victims didn’t even know it. So no harm, no foul? The Duggars live in a patriarchal world and it is apparent where the daughters stand in the pecking order.

Jim Bob Duggar failed to report for 1 year that his son Josh was a child molester

The Duggar family portray old fashioned family values on their TLC show. They are Christian and hard core right wingers. Father Jim Bob is the head of his family and in that role he rules the roost, but he is not the law. In Touch magazine is reporting that their oldest son Josh confessed to molesting his sisters and another girl. He is now 27 and these acts happened when he was 14. His father did not report the crime for an entire year and when he did report it it was done to a family friend who is in law enforcement. The Duggars say they prayed and God has forgiven him. I believe He has, but Grace is given by God, but when you molest a child you break man’s law and your punishment should not be determined by your dad even if he is Jim Bob Duggar.

The Duggar’s are Expecting their 20th child

Appearing on the Today Show the Duggar’s announced that their 20th child is joining the clan. The Duggar’s take care of themselves so this is their business, but in this day and time how can a mother handle the emotional needs of so many children? Is this fair to the older children who actually help raise their siblings? Tell me what you think.

PETA Ad Bashes the Duggars…Is It Fair?

 

Why do we even know the Duggars? They have 19 children and they have their own reality show. Does that mean their personal choices should be subject to mocking? Evidently PETA feels it does. Their latest billboard shown above takes dead aim at the Duggar’s lifestyle. It is just the latest in PETA’s mean spirited advertising . They have taken swipes at the overweight, they have used the image of the First Lady without her permission so this is just the latest in their ill-advised strategy. The Duggars made a choice to have the reality show and by doing this they have made themselves fair game. PETA’s response: “The reproduction debate’s heating up as TLC prepares to air the fourth season of its Duggar Family hit, 19 Kids and Counting. This season, the Duggars have upped their clan size from 18 to 19, and it has some arguing yay or nay about the ‘Duggar-style’ approach to reproduction. We say, as long as Jim Bob and Michelle are able to keep a roof over their family’s head and modern-modest clothes on their backs, there’s a far more important reproductive issue at hand. So, we’re offering to run this billboard in the Duggar’s hometown of Tontitown, Arkansas, as well as in nearby Springdale and Fayetteville.”  So PETA can use this approach, but having the right to do something does not make it right.
