Liberals Hate on Duggar Family for Christian Values, Call for Cancellation of “19 Kids and Counting”


The popular TLC show “19 Kids and Counting” has come under fire from LGBTQ activists upset about the Duggar family’s Christian values.  One activist put up a petition on, titled “End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars,” that has already received over 100,000 signatures.


The Duggar family’s central theme is their pro-life, Christian values and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children have been outspoken over the years in defending human life from abortion and promoting abstinence education.

But now, more than 100,000 people have signed an online petition that calls on TLC to cancel its popular “19 Kids and Counting” series claiming the Duggar family engages in fear-mongering.  Jim Wissick, of San Jose, California, wrote a letter to TLC, which was posted on the petition page, that accused the Duggar family of “using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering.” …

TLC needs to “separate themselves from this bigotry and put an end to the Duggars’ show,” Wissick argues, and he’s also upset about Josh Duggar’s involvement with the Family Research Council’s legislative group, FRC Action. That’s a pro-life group that has pushed for a ban on abortion after 20 weeks and stopping taxpayer funding of abortions. The petiton claims FRC is a hate group.

But now fans are fighting back with their own petition – We Support the Duggar Family: Don’t Cancel “19 Kids and Counting:

Liberal activists are at it again with another attempt to pressure TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting,” the successful cable television show featuring the Duggar family and their pro-life values. … We, the undersigned, fully support the Duggar Family and TLC should keep 19 Kids and Counting on the air!”
