My 16 Favorite Comments About Whether The Duggars Should Make More Babies

Michelle Duggar Jim Bob Duggar kissingYou may not know this, but something about me is that I really really love internet commenters. Not in a ‘let’s get married’ kind of way, but in a ‘oh my god I can’t believe you’re yelling that at me in all caps, I’m obsessed’ kind of way.

And of all the internet commenters out there, fans of the Duggars, the family behind 19 Kids And Counting, are probably the best. They’re conservative, they’re vocal, and they’re really upset with me for suggesting that nineteen children, one miscarriage, a premie, and two emergency c-sections might be enough for one uterus – Michelle‘s. (I know, I really have some nerve.)

So from a post that currently has over 375 comments, I chose just a few of my favorite rage-filled responses, and sprinkled them in here with some extremely intelligent thoughts from our more regular readers who were brave enough to wander into the fray.

Read with care, it can get a little shouty.

1. conservgirl gets derailed by her own opinion:

Its none of our business how many kids they have. They have supported them all. It would be different if they were like the octomom or that woman who had 12 kids and expected us to pay for them. I think she should quit having children since the older you are the more the child may have downs syndrome.

2. JenH1986 makes an excellent point about adoption:

I always think maybe God wants them to see fit to give themselves one by adopting or fostering. The kids seem to be doing ok (minus the raising the siblings and no hand holding until engagement) and they aren’t on assistance from the state. Maybe they could give back the way God wants by offering a safe home for another child, even if it’s only temporary. I understand the desire for bio children, but I know we have always discussed adoption and fostering in addition to or in place of bio kids.

3. MystikSpiral reminds us why it’s okay to comment on these people and their beliefs:

They do their show to preach and to show other people what their life is like. By doing so, they freely give others the right to make judgements based on what they see.

I don’t see a loving, intelligent family. I see two parents who are more interested in having as many kids as humanly possible than raising and getting to know the ones they already spawned. I see older siblings used as parents because there are too many children for two people to conceivably raise. I see a whole pile of kids who are home-schooled by either (a) a parent with no understanding or knowledge of basic science and a poor grasp on simple grammar, or (b) an older sibling who was home-schooled by (a).

4. Guest practices for his or her SATs tomorrow:

Sounds like one hateful group is right here on this comment board: A group obsessed with degrading a family because their views and practices are dissimilar from their own. That fact alone makes the bitter diatribe demonstrated on this board and instigated by such a sophomoric article, ironically hypocritical.

5. dy burns an image onto the insides of my eyelids:

I want her uterus to jump out of her and just throw up its fallopian tubes and say “no way girl…no way.”

6. rdeesw is confused by the concept of a gossip site:

Whoa! How unkind your comments are. You can disagree with her life choices. (I do.) You may question her motives and her theology. (I do.) BUT — you can disagree and question without lacing your comments with snark. What you have written says a whole lot about you.

7. Kelly pours one out for the women out there who are struggling with fertility:

She’s publicly stated many times that women should be available to their husbands for sex any time he wants it, whether the woman wants it or not. She believes a woman’s only purpose in life is to create children. Yes, that is shaming infertile women by saying they have no purpose in life.

I’ve never heard of an athletic man in the NBA walking around saying all men should be in the NBA and that those who choose not to be in the NBA are morally inferior.

As for what you assume I can’t do… I could stop giving a shit about my health and become a baby machine. I physically have the ability to do that just like Michelle Duggar. She isn’t doing anything I can’t do so obviously I’m not jealous of her. She’s broken because she has nothing else in life but baby making. That’s not healthy for anyone. I don’t expect her to stop until she destroys herself. Boy, that’ll sure be entertaining for her “fans”, won’t it? Just out of curiosity, will you cry or clap when she starts delivering dead babies and eventually dies herself?

8. Karissa Sights thinks the older siblings are just like teachers…who didn’t choose their vocation and make absolutely no money from it. Yup, exactly the same:

A lot of you guys are talking about how “sickening” or “wrong” it is that the older girls “raise” the little ones, but in a similar way aren’t you doing the same thing when you send your kids to school? The teacher has your children for about 8 hours for 5 days out of the week. The adds up to 40 hours a week. They tell your kids what they can and can not do, they teach them things that they believe, and your kids listen to them. If you have ever spent any amount of time with more than 6-7 kids simultaneously, you need a buddy system. Otherwise kids will do what they want and you probably wouldn’t have a house standing. That’s just how little kids are. They need supervision. Since nearly everybody seems to be so against the buddy system I would like for you all to try it with a good amount of kids and see how it goes. Let me save you some time, it’s not going to work. It just doesn’t. All kids need somebody to remind them sometimes of the things that they shouldn’t do. If you have a descent amount of kids the buddy system is necessary. And guess what, they use the buddy system at school, so if it’s such a bad thing then why do they use it too

9. Alyssa is understandably worried about Michelle’s health:

I’m more worried that she can no longer carry a baby to full term. that last baby barely made it. Why keep allowing that to happen? Complications can arise in any pregnancy, whether it be the first or last, but if your uterus has previously held 19 children, and the last was born so premature she nearly died, perhaps you need to reevaluate. And ugh, the fact that they have “team leaders” and pass the little ones off to older kids drives me insane, no one gets to enjoy their childhood. They are forced to become parents to their siblings before they are ready. No kid deserves that kind of responsibility. The Duggers have kids for the sake of having kids.

10. TRUTH2014 has some really intelligent ideas about brainwashing. (His own.):

The bottom line is they can do whatever they choose too do. Call it whatever you want too. Gays and lesbian couples “brainwash” their kids into believing that their lifestyle is somehow ‘normal” and they were born that way and it’s okay to step outside of the institution of marriage the way God intended for it to be between a man and a woman. The more important point to allude to from this article is the author was very foolish to blaspheme GOD in the way she did. She offended many folks and then to go attack Michelle this way, so distasteful!!! I am not judging, I am spreading TRUTH according the Holy Word of GOD Almighty!

11. M_G brilliantly explains the difference between tolerance and criticism:

Being “tolerant” of something and being “critical” of something is different. People tolerate the Duggars insofar as they’re not making open threats against them, demanding they be taken off the air, etc. But tolerance of something doesn’t exempt that something from criticism. In the case of the personal experiences you talked about, it’s a different story because you weren’t putting forth your personal choices for the global audience to see (to my knowledge…..unless you’re an Osmond….). So you are within your right to expect a level of privacy that the Duggers cannot, and it is that fact which leaves them open to criticism on a much larger scale.

12. Bryant Bajema reminds me of my many luxuries as a ‘columnist’. Namely, to persecute:

Respectfully:

Sometimes those who often preach tolerance at all costs sound the least
bit tolerant of those with whom they seem to disagree. The Duggars are
raising a productive, happy, intelligent family- individuals this world
lacks. Some save trees, others rescue puppies, some choose to raise
above average children and send them out into the world. They are
excellent examples of living in a way that is not popular, yet they do
not come across as judgmental in the slightest- even when given numerous
opportunities. They always say “WE believe” without imposing their
perspectives on others, as is the luxury of a columnist such as yourself.

If you look around and no one is persecuting you, consider that you may
be the persecutor.

13. MS would like us to let the Duggars be (but wouldn’t that kind of ruin the ratings for their show??):

Why do we judge what other people are doing ? We should look at ourselves. We are all not perfect. They live their lives with their believes. Are we judging their religion? They are only screwing the government with all their tax deductions. Wouldn’t we love to do that too? JUST LET THEM BE !!

14. Kelly nails the response:

If everyone let them be, how would they support their family? They’d lose their show and a massive amount of income.

I don’t think they’d appreciate you trying to destroy their livelihood.

15. Lynn Elliott would prefer I not put my own spin on this…blog post I wrote:

What a mean hateful and twisted version of the Duggar’s lives. If you are going to review someone else don’t put your own spin on their lives or interpret their words for them. You have no idea about their relationship with God. I have regularly watched their show and although I don’t agree with everything they believe or do, they made their own choice to live the way they choose. If it makes them happy then leave it alone. I don’t know anyone else who interprets their motives in this way.The person who wrote this just seems mean spirited and bitter. Their family seems so much more well adjusted and happy then most of the families you see now. There is obviously a lot of love in that family and that is something that the author completely overlooked.

16. And luckily Sarah is here to (very bizarrely) bring it all back around to racism:

Since we the American Family have no right to have children; but the Africans and south Americans can have kids they do not even want or can take care of. These are kids having kids who are having kids. Then everybody “wonders” why all these kids commit all these horrific crimes! Spay and neuter all these people. Why should the Americans pay for kids having kids!! VERY WRONG.

    “Sarah” and “Truth2014″ nearly made me shit my pants. I can’t stop laughing.

    • TRUTH2014

      Hmm, was that supposed to make me feel stupid that you have a problem keeping your bowels from unloading into your drawers because you like to laugh so hard at someone who defends what the Bible say’s? If you actually thought that comment would make me think twice about saying how I feel about God, well then, keep crapping your drawers lol!

    • Maggie J

      No, I’m laughing at the fact that you’re obviously a total nut. This point is proven by the fact that you hunted down people talking about you. “And lo, God said: if you choose to be a fool on a public forum, then you may not be butthurt by other’s responses. From the land of idiocy, there rose a great cry, but it was done by God’s will.” -King James Old Testament.

      That’s my favorite bible quote. Oh, sorry Truth, I meant it’s my favorite fucking bible quote… :)

    • TRUTH2014

      My hope and prayer is that someday you will see the light and confess your sins to God and plea forgiveness! These words you use are so very foolish! A friendly reminder that the Bible makes it very clear how God views blaspheming him. I pray it’s not too late for you!

      “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” Gal 6:7

      “But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and
      misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his
      people, till there was no remedy.” II Chronicles 36:16

      Sorry, I’ll let God decide what to do with me. Not some born-again Internet Christian zealot. Who probably doesn’t live what the bible preaches…. like no haircuts, no mixing meat and cheese, and do not be raped! And yes, mixed fibers- so take off the damn poly-blend before he strikes you down!

    • TRUTH2014

      That’s an assumption is it not? The transformation between the Old and New Testaments are separated by the Love of Jesus coming to earth as a man and dying for us to pay the ultimate sacrifice of Love. The old testament was more or less a collective group of books which dealt with rule by law. The new testament was to show mankind that sin had been defeated by the ultimate sacrifice paid thru the greatest act of love man has ever known. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Salvation is now thru Grace and we don’t work for it or earn it, it’s a FREE gift for anyone to choose and accept. We must come to the end of ourselves – Paul says we must die to ourselves daily. Our flesh gravitates towards the things of this world which all fade away, the spirit which lives within us gravitates towards things that are eternal. When we allow the Spirit to enter us, the strongholds addictions and bondages of sin are no longer able to hold us down. We no longer care what this world thinks of us, we only care what Jesus Christ thinks – “Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” and “old things have passed away behold, all things become new” The words and insults which are hurled at me don’t bother me at all because my security is in Christ and that’s eternal. I didn’t just make a good choice by God’s grace, I made a GREAT choice to follow him!

      Truth, STTTTAAAAHHHHHPPPPP. Just stop. Your bullshit is clogging up my email with notifications. If you don’t have anything funny to say (which OBVIOUSLY you don’t), get the fuck out of here. Everybody else is hilarious but you.

    • TRUTH2014

      You know Maggie J, you are a very angry person! Still doesn’t answer my question. You nearly crapped your pants laughing so hard at my comment which wasn’t even funny supposedly, so to everyone else WHO IS, you must go thru alot of outfits I would imagine and the stench must be horrific! I would say use the commode more often than your britches but then it would clog the toilet at that rate. Maybe a better idea would be to put the plunger on yours, Alexis and Mystics mouths since you like to spew crap about people so much LOL!

    • Maggie J

      You seem unusually obsessed with my panties. I’ll have to ask you to stop, as this makes me quite uncomfortable. If your fetish is used panties, you can find them listed on Craigslist. Mine are not available, please stop pestering me to know what’s happening in my undergarments.

    • TRUTH2014

      Hmm, I don’t recall ever mentioning the word “panties” on this blog, I do believe the word I selected to use was “drawers” and the references are more to do with your self confessed inability to control your bowels. I can assure you I don’t want any of your messed drawers because you laughed so hard so please, don’t waste your time feeling uncomfortable! That’s the last thing you may want to worry about!

    • TRUTH2014

      If talking trashy is what defines being funny, I will gladly take being indifferent and be very proud of it. Please no worries, I have no desire to be like everyone on here.

    • TRUTH2014

      You know Mystik, if your attempt in using the “f”bomb is to get a reaction out of me so you can get angry and continue to use the “f” bomb over and over I think it’s best I not even continue to address this simply because it’s really not getting us anywhere. Would you not agree? I just have this feeling deep down inside that you have had alot of bad things happen to you in life. I may be wrong but things that were out of your control and what I do know is each of us was innocent at time in life – at least as children. But innocence sadly doesn’t stay with too many folks in this sinful world. Most of the time we choose to give it away, but even more sad, sometimes it’s taken at a very young age. I don’t know what has made you this way, I do care about you as a person inspite of the way you treat me. I do care about Maggie even though she has trouble with her bowels ;) I must admit to being very angry with Alexis, but even she has proven to be funny in her own way. I know people think I am better than others but I am just trying to share my message of how God took me out of the addictions of sin I was in and set my feet upon a rock. I have never been more blessed than this very moment in life. Just wanted to put that out there for the record.

    • LadyClodia

      Are you defending all of the Bible or just the parts you like? Because I’m positive that there’s stuff about having more than one wife and some stuff about not wearing clothing with mixed fibers.

    • TRUTH2014

      I defend all of it! Would you like to exemplify in further detail what you are alluding too so I can better answer your question(s).

    • LadyClodia

      Well I would think you should know what it says if you’re going to defend all of it. But God was apparently OK with (at least enough not to smite or punish) both David and Solomon having a bunch of wives. And Lev. 19:19 has a commandment not to wear cloth made from two kinds of fibers.
      There are a lot of other strange rules laid out by the Old Testament that the vast majority of modern Christians don’t follow. And if you don’t follow everything that the Old Testament says that wouldn’t be surprising, but you’d hardly be defending or agreeing with the whole Bible.

    • TRUTH2014

      Thank you for making it a bit more clearer for me! To be honest LadyClodia, I don’t really think many people would give me the time nor patience to try and sit here and defend every law written in the Old or New testament nor to defend the whole Bible period. However, I do think you bring up a very good point here and one that i have observed over and over in this forum being addressed.
      For that reason I will try to give you the best answer I can but please understand that it’s not so simple to explain. For those of you who watched the “Passion of the Christ” you may recall when Jesus died, their was a might earthquake and the veil in the temple was torn. When that happened, God was symbolizing that his sacrifice, the shedding of His own blood, was a sufficient atonement for sins. It signified that now the way into the Holy of Holies was open for all people, for all time both Jew and Gentile. When Jesus dies, the veil was torn and God moved out of that place never again to dwell in a temple made with hands (Acts 17:24) The temple was left desolate (destroyed by the Romons) in A.D. 70. As long as the temple stood it signified the continuation of the Old Covenant (Old Testament practices). Now Hebrews 9:8-9 refers to the age that was passing away as the new covenant was being established Hebrews 8;13. In a sense, the veil was symbolic of Christ himself as the only way to the Father (John 14:6). This is indicated by the fact that the high priest had to enter the Holy of Holies through the veil. Now Christ is our superior High Priest, and as believers in his finished work, we partake of His better priesthood. We an now enter the Holy of Holies through him.
      What does this have to do with defending the Bible’s laws in the Old Testament? How much better can I explain it, we don’t have rituals anymore, yes we are still supposed to refrain from sinning as the books of the new testament clearly indicate but to anyone who knows the Bible the first four books of the New Testament are basically the fullfillment of the Old Testament. It goes way beyond that but hopefully that provides a bit of insight to yourself or someone else out there who didn’t realize what the temple veil tear represented. Bottom line, the New Testament represents Salvation thru Grace and we no longer bound to the old law thru a high priest with animal sacrifices. Christ blood washed away all sins in the past, present and future for all mankind.

    • LadyClodia

      I do completely understand that events detailed in the New Testament mean that adherence to the Old Testament laws are no longer necessary. And yet, the Old Testament is not merely used as a history book leading up to the New Testament; it is still considered by Christians to be a religious text. Every modern Christian I have known has quoted a law or passage from the Old Testament because it pertained to a particular situation that they needed to justify. That shouldn’t be the case if the laws of the Old Testament are no longer necessary. This is a general idiosyncrasy that I’ve noticed in Christianity, and I understand that you in no way represent all Christians, and so this isn’t specifically your problem; it’s just something I’ve observed.

      I’m still new to this site but I’ve enjoyed all your comments. Especially since 99.9% of the time they are the same as mine. You are my more eloquent mouth piece. Also that last sentence made me think of Halle Berty when she won her Oscar.

    • M_G

      Thank you!! :-)

  • TRUTH2014

    I think what we have learned Alexis thru this whole experience is that we all have differences of opinion. I guess the way I see it is we have 2 choices. we can A) continue attacking collectively (a.k.a ganging up on them and attacking by choice of popular opinion) or we can B) keep it professional and share views bouncing ideas, values, philosophies and in some cases theology – depending on the situation and topic of discussion. Personally, I feel each of acts the way we do and hold our dearest deepest values because of the way we were raised, influenced, and from our very own extracted life experiences. In the end, I guess the way I see it until someone can prove me wrong, I base my views and opinions on the one TRUE source that has been more reliable than any other source of TRUTH on this planet – THE WORD OF GOD. While recognizing that I am still a sinner, I do my best to live by it’s principles, values and instructions. In the end, based on all my collective experiences in life pulled together good or bad, I believe 100% that the Word of God has the final say and the individuals who stand on it’s promises and each of them know exactly who they are, they are the ones who in heaven will hear “Well done thou good and faithful servant!”

    • M_G

      I am going to say something now, and I want to establish that I say this in all sincerity without any sarcastic undertones. If you could stick to your own advice, I don’t think anyone would have a problem with what you’re saying. You have your own opinions, your own “truths”, and you are entitled to them and nobody has the right to say otherwise. HOWEVER, that being said, you have spent most of your comments on the previous thread (and on this one) being condescending towards those who have made it clear they don’t share your beliefs. It is very hard to “keep it professional” when someone is basically coming off saying, “What I am saying is the truth and you’re stupid for not accepting/realizing that,” when really, that’s the truth FOR YOU and others who share your beliefs. Is it really so hard to understand that other people with different beliefs, who have come to those beliefs in the same way that you came to yours, are going to likewise feel that they are right? Yet you constantly insist that you are right and everyone who disagrees is wrong. That’s not preaching the Bible. That’s spreading your self-appointed moral superiority for the rest of us to bask in. It’s tiresome to read the SAME COMMENTS over and over and over again from someone who claims to want to commence an open dialog.

    • Maggie J

      THIS. So much.

    • TRUTH2014

      Well again, thanks for your openness and honesty here. Perhaps I could see how it might appear to be condescending but I have to honestly state in response to that acquisition, I have also tried to apologize to those I have offended and demonstrate humility as well admitting my own imperfections and giving God the glory for anything good in my own life. I have shared some really good dialog with others who engaged in that with me. I haven’t forced anyone too do that. They share that with me on their own merit. That being said, I cannot/will not hide who I am. I will share the Love of Christ no matter where I go. If that offends people,well, I guess I should start apologizing again but also state it won’t stop here or anywhere else for that matter.

    • M_G

      To clarify, I was not suggesting that you hide who you are. I believe 100% that everyone is entitled to their own opinion (even when I vehemently disagree with them, because I recognize that they would also probably vehemently disagree with my opposing viewpoints). And I don’t think your views offend anyone so much as the way you were presenting them. But that’s a matter of opinion, so I could be wrong, too. I wasn’t offended by anything you were saying.

    • TRUTH2014

      I understand. Thanks!

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      You made more sense in this one comment than that Bible Basher has made on this entire thread.
      Hypocritical to say the least! She preaches “acceptance and tolerance” but if you do not share her beliefs, (I an Atheist, have been for years) well then, you’re wrong.

      I love how you said everything that was swirling around my mind in one eloquent comment.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      In the end, I guess the way I see it until someone can prove me wrong, I base my views and opinions on the one TRUE source that has been more reliable than any other source of TRUTH on this planet – GRAMMAR.

      Which is how I know you and I will never get along.

    • M_G

      I hope he has some holy water on hand to apply to that BURN.

    • TRUTH2014

      Nah, no need but thanks anyways! I am a big boy and can handle negativity quite well.

    • TRUTH2014

      I have found that when people attack me that’s one thing. I can handle it no problem. I realize that people who carelessly hurl insults at others intended to hurt their self esteem are doing so because they are insecure and feel threatened usually in some way shape or form. Alexis is not a terrible person for what she says or does but she does just like many others on here feel the need to validate herself by insulting thru sarcasm and speaking condescending towards anyone who opposes her view. I defend the innocence of individuals who I feel are slandered to make sure that people who aren’t so closed minded to truth on this blog can see it from the other side as well.

      Lol, I don’t take offense to that. I have never claimed to be an expert with GRAMMER. I would however respectfully disagree with you on GRAMMAR being the one TRUE source that has been more reliable than any other source of TRUTH on this planet.

    Hats off to dy. I got a visual of those wacky waving inflates in front of used car lots. Also Alexis, the intros to each comment were amazing. I bow down to your literary wit.

    Michelle Duggar has had two miscarriages. The first was after their first son Josh and then the second was the famous one every one knows about. The first miscarriage is why they don’t believe in birth control.

    “Jim Bob and Michelle were married on July 21, 1984.[5]

    The Duggars elected to delay having children and practiced birth control. It was four years before Josh, their eldest, was born in 1988. They then resumed using birth control; despite precautions, they conceived again but Michelle miscarried. Michelle revealed that they had named the child Caleb despite not knowing the sex.[6] Believing the miscarriage was due to the contraceptive, the Duggars quit using birth control.”

    I think Sarah of the last comment needs to take a nap. Da hell?

  • Cassandra Hough

    I just spent the first 45 minutes of my work day reading every one of the 300+ comments. Viva El Uterus De Duggar! May it eventually find a place in th Smithsonian. Or at least be eaten by the fake dinosaurs in the Creation museum someday.

  • JenH1986

    I commented and left the article. I’m now going to have to go back and read all the comments to see what kind of fuckery is going on over there!

    • JenH1986

      @alexisrhiannon:disqus God Bless you for wading through that shit show. You are a good woman. I had to stop half way through.

      Out here doing the good work!

    If I had to pick a Crushable article that I though would inspire this much conversation, I don’t think I would’ve picked one about the Duggars… Wow! It brought out some crazy ass commenters, too!

  • Jem

    I just about died laughing at the SAT prepper..

    but that last one..yeeeesh :

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Everyone is an insane person!

  • Sarah Brewer

    I really love your posts about the Duggar family. I’m a ‘to each their own’ person, but I do tend to disagree with a lot of what the Duggars do, plus as a women, I do like a good piece of gossip! You add just enough sarcasm into your articles to make it entertaining, but not to much to make you sound like an ass. I look forward to reading more from you!

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      That’s really nice Sarah, thank you so much for saying so!

    • TRUTH2014

      Too bad you enjoy reading about someone who attacks the beliefs of a good wholesome family thru sarcasm and gossip.

    • Sarah Brewer

      You’re clearly reading it , too! Lmfao

    • TRUTH2014

      No denying that, but taking no pleasure in it, that I assure you. It doesn’t take much of a person to rip others down or to complement someone who does as well. People who need love the most, deserve it the least!

    • Sarah Brewer

      Look at that, ripping me down. I have plenty of love in my life, I don’t need anymore. I deserve every last bit of it, too. I really hate hypocrites…

    • TRUTH2014

      While I am glad you are loved and feel you deserve every last bit of it Sara, you have some hate issues I would say. Not sure that is really “ripping” as much as it may be just calling it like it is!

    • Sarah Brewer

      Telling me I don’t deserve love is pretty hateful. Seems I’ll see you on the same boat to hell, honey!

    • TRUTH2014

      I never said that! I actually was genuinely happy that you not only felt loved but you knew you deserved it and you do!! So don’t think I don’t wish you the best that life and love have to offer, I just pointed out I think its a shame you take part in ostracizing this innocent family with the writer of this blog! Wish you the best! I must run along!

    Again, it’s gotten to a point where writing on here to those of you who are left is completely and totally accomplishing nothing at this point. I must say, the past week it’s been rather amusing listening to some of your thoughts. For those of you who constructively shared their views in a respectful manner, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And to those who didn’t, I still enjoyed the exchanges and wish you all the very best that life has to offer. My prayers are with you! We are all part of this journey that life offers and just know that you are loved by Jesus Christ. I failed at times properly showing the correct christian testimony but it’s a work in progress. I was tested at times this week for sure but in the end, the glory belongs to God. Peace out!

    I totally agree that, if they were minding their own business and going about their lives, who cares if they have 50 kids. Nobody would even know or care.
    Oh, but wait. They have a reality tv show that is completely based on how many kids they have, how they want more kids, etc… So they sort of need people to care, or no one would watch their show. And if they need people to care, they’re going to have to deal with negative feedback (that sometimes resembles common sense…).
    Also, did they not see what has happened to other TLC families? John and Kate plus eight? Little People Big world? TLC will throw you to the wolves when popular opinion of you goes!
