Columnist Matt Walsh asked are the Duggars being punished for the acts of their son or is it because they are Christians?

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.

TLC’s Honey Boo Boo Child is just the latest reality show trainwreck


I saw promos for Honey Boo Boo child while watching TLC formerly (The Learning Channel) and I felt sorry for the entire family. Why would I have this reaction? After all they are being paid well to let the cameras chronicle their daily antics, but what is the real cost? America is going to watch this and laugh and mock the family. The tragedy is the audience will not be laughing with them they will be laughing at them.

Lowe’s Pulls Ads from TLC show “All-American-Muslim”

Does a company have a right to pull their advertising from a show? Lowe’s pulled their ads from the “All-American Muslim” show because of feedback that they were receiving from some of their customers, but is this fair. Read the linked story and tell me what you think:

Toddlers, Tiaras and Hookers…oh my!

TLC Toddlers and Tiaras is a show that features young girls in beauty pageants. Not a fan, but to each its own, but this week the show crossed a line. One of the mothers dressed her young daughter up as Julia Roberts in the movie “Pretty Woman”. For those of you not familiar with the movie Roberts played a prostitute. The little girl paraded around in the costume like a girl on the “stroll”. So what can we do about this? Really nothing. Parents have a right to have their children in pageants, but is this a little more than pageant behavior? Tell me what you think.

Why is Sarah Palin slamming the First lady?

Sarah Palin’s TLC show gives her to opportunity to say anything she wants and to talk about anyone she wants to. She recently took a shot at the Frist Lady.  Mrs. Obama is concerned about childhood obesity and her Let’s Move campaign which was designed to get kids moving. Mrs. Obama encourages healthy eating and consuming desserts in moderation, but evidently this does not sit right with the moose hunting mom from Alaska. If Sarah wants to feed her children s’mores do it, but did she really need to take a slap at the first lady?

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.
