At least this family is pulling there own weight, unlike so many that have babies and give them away because they don't use birth control or don't care they get knocked up.  Also IMO people have the right to choose how big their family is.  Thank god they're not living in China this wouldn't have happend.

Not ever agreeing with that argument, NH. If each one of these children does the same they're gonna guarantee pruductive people? No. Great tax break, tho. The world should not condone over population. It's a fact, not sweet or cute.

On one hand, the family looks really smothering and the kids are interdependent, which means they aren't able to have lives of their own. On another, they are having their own non-taxpayer funded kids and while there might be a rotten apple or two, there's always a bad one in any family, or not. That the girls aren't going to school or getting careers is creepy enough.

They pay NO taxes, KF.  And the whole dang thing is creepy and over-cultivated.

I know I'm the creep on this, but this is just not cool.  How do you, even if we look at this as a loving, supportive environment, have enough time to spend with each child or pay attention to their needs?  You don't, so the older children get dumped with the job.  No.  Just...NO.

I've seen it happen in my own home town and it's a disaster.  I had one creep, who had 16 children, who would spend 4 hours changing a lightbulb and telling me how he was screwing the government.  He even got money BACK!

You have a good point, plus the fact that the girls are discouraged from going to college.

Josh Duggar of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting has confirmed to People that in 2006, as a teenager, he molested several underage girls—including some of his sisters. Duggar also announced that he will resign as executive director of the Family Research Council.

The comments are merciless.

One of his victims was 9 years old.

19 Kids and Counting taken off the air by TLC in wake of revelation that son Josh molested young girls and his parents Jim Bob and Michelle covered it up

    TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting off the schedule following the revelation that Josh Duggar molested young girls as a teenager
    The move comes one day after the network decided to air a marathon of the show heavily featuring Josh
    The show has not been officially cancelled at this time

On a really, wrong, but hilarious note, someone on DListed mentioned that a friend of theirs suggested that 19 Kids and Counting might end up being the description of the number of kids Josh has messed with.



I'll show myself off of the forum now.

I find it rather disgusting that TLC is thinking about continuing this show. Sure, it was Josh who molested several little children, among them some of his sisters, but his parents knew about it and did nothing, apart from sending him to a family-friend where he did some house-remodelling.

That is not only bad parenting (both towards Josh ánd towards the little victims) it is also a felony as they obstructed an investigation and as a result, justice.

And all the time having the chip on their shoulder of being a wholesome Christian family with 'good Christian values'. Yeah right. Give me a loving gay couple with adopted children that they love and protect as true parents should do over the sanctimonious Duggars ANY day.

Post by: YooperModerator on May 25, 2015, 11:59:55 am
^I couldn't agree more.  TLC should just stop now while they're ahead and stop throwing money at the Duggars.  The problem is, people love to look at car accidents and it has always been that it makes people feel superior to watch people self-destruct.  Personally, I don't think we've even begun to find out all the info that goes on in that wacky family. 

But, I don't think TLC is going to get swamped with advertisers which, unfortunately, is their bottom line.  Not integrity.  If they do go back on, there are people out there checking to see who sponsors that show and are more than willing to boycott and are very vocal about it.  If that family hadn't been so sanctimonious about other people's lifestyles, I MIGHT give Josh and his father and mother a break on this but they haven't been. 

It's all about the money.  I'd like to know how much this family has made selling this "product" m'self.

There is a huge difference between a mistake and pathological behavior. This is NOT a mistake. I'm all about forgiveness but the behavior around the incidences - Dad going to a family friend in law enforcement (who happened to be a perpetrator himself) to give him a talking to instead of actually turning the kid in, the overall hypocrisy (the robocall, Josh's now former employer), the victims continuing to live under the same roof, the fact that he didn't receive therapy but was sent to do construction work with a family friend, and the fact that the authorities weren't made aware until someone slipped Oprah a note - tells me that there isn't true repentance, only regret that the cat is out of the bag and the gravy train has stopped.

I do a lot of volunteer work with abused kids so this thing really chaps my hide.

Sister of reality TV star Josh Duggar says he victimized her
https://news.yahoo.com/sister-reality-star-josh-duggar-says-she-victim-000514266.html


Josh Duggar was 'a child preying on a child,' his father says
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-duggars-19-kids-and-counting-fox-20150603-story.html

Josh Duggar confessed to his father Jim Bob Duggar on THREE separate occasions to multiple acts of sexual molestation against his sisters and a family friend, according to a new police report obtained exclusively by In Touch magazine.

The document also makes clear that Josh was 15 years old when he molested his 5-year-old sister and committed at least SEVEN acts of sexual molestation.

I feel bad about the survivors having to relive it all over again (Even though the police report was obtained legally, all names of the survivors AND Josh were redacted, and no one would know for sure who the victims were if they weren't doing this dang interview. Otherwise, it would be a bunch of speculation) but not about them losing the show. They are all able bodied. Get out and get a real job like everyone else. It's not the end of the world.

I think people can guess who the victims were based on the ages given in the report.

Yes, of course they can go out and get jobs, but they seemed to enjoy doing the TV show. They are being punished yet again for their creepy brother's past and their parents' poor judgment. That's the part I don't think is right.

I know Honey Boo Boo also lost her show, but she's a minor and can't really do a show on her own. Two of the Duggar daughters/sisters are grown and married and they could focus the show on the next generation.

A lot of people do/did view them as trash, even before the molestation scandal. There seems to be a general disdain for large families and families with strong Christian beliefs in the media, and considering how much time people spend watching TV/online, these beliefs are picked up by the population at large. Large families are viewed as irresponsible and Christians are portrayed as behind the times and/or unintelligent.

^Very good points and to demonize the whole family is truly unfair.  It's difficult to see because of the sheer size of this community but they are all individuals with some good qualities as well.  And it is a community more than a family, per se.  It's practically impossible to be, as a parent, on task with that many children especially when those children are taking on your own roles as a substitute parent.  I find that part extremely irresponsible.

But, if you're going to shove sexuality, which is how you get pregnant in the first place, in a child's face over and over and over and then combine it with extreme repression, you're going to have rogue behavior and immense curiosity.  If I thought that having babies and tons of them was the way to go, I can almost understand how this would become a side obsession.  Jim Bob, the father, also doesn't seem to be the sharpest pencil in the box, either, and add to that a submissive and tag along wife, who's really fully engaged and at the helm?  The kids themselves it appears so to play "mommy" or "daddy" almost seems 'normal' in their cloistered and kinda cultish world.  And, having sex is pretty much what mommy and daddy do so it doesn't take Einstein to figure out that some or all of them are going to want to act that out and try to find out what the excitement is all about.

The Duggars were a family who pretty much built up their own financial status until TLC came along.  I think the hostility has more to do with their preachy, self-righteous attitude than their financial status.  And don't forget, Jim Bob served in the House of Representatives in Arkansas so there's a political agenda as well.  I don't really think their money has that much to do with anything.  They're not in the same league as, say, the Kardashians. The American "Upper Class" is defined, by our gov't, as the 1%ers.  Those in the $10M income/year bracket, top venture capitalists, CEOs of large corporations and so on.  People who influence society with their financial status.  These people don't fall into that category.   It's all about their perception as being pure as the driven snow that has been particularly unnerving.

They are well off. They weren't when the show first started. When the first special aired, they were relying on "love offerings" from church members to stay afloat. They cut the "buy used, save the difference" act a few years ago and started acting a tad Middleton-ish. These are the same folks who set up wedding registries with things like MacBook Pros on them and made it available to fans so they could purchase things for them. The same thing has been done with baby registries. They make $45K an episode alone. Now factor in the People spreads, speaking engagements, and book deals. 

I'm sorry, but I know waay to much about them to buy the line that they are being persecuted because they are a large family that happens to be Christian. There was A LOT that was not shown on this show about their hateful brand of Christianity. Just read up on Bill Gothard & blanket training. All of this stuff that has come out over the last 2-3 weeks had been discussed at length on several forums over the last 3-4 years.

While I do feel horrible that the survivors have to live through this, I don't feel bad about all the spoils going away. It's not just the parents and Josh. Jessa and her husband have said some foul stuff via social media, as well. You don't get to fling poo then cry victim when turds start showing up at your front door.

Quote
In 2013, conservative reality TV star Josh Duggar—of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting fame—was named the executive director of the Family Research Council, a conservative lobbying group in D.C. which seeks “to champion marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society.” During that time, he also maintained a paid account on Ashley Madison, a web site created for the express purpose of cheating on your spouse.

Quote
Someone using a credit card belonging to a Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary—a home that was consistently shown on their now-cancelled TV show, and in which Anna Duggar gave birth to her first child—paid a total of $986.76 for two different monthly Ashley Madison subscriptions from February of 2013 until May of 2015.


Quote
According to the data, Josh Duggar was paying Ashley Madison in order to find an extramarital partner for the following acts:

“Conventional Sex,” Experimenting with Sex Toys,” One-Night Stands,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Gentleness,” “Good With Your Hands,” Sensual Massage,” “Extended Foreplay/Teasing,” “Bubble Bath for 2,” “Likes to Give Oral Sex,” “Likes to Receive Oral Sex,” “Someone I Can Teach,” “Someone Who Can Teach Me,” “Kissing,” “Cuddling & Hugging,” “Sharing Fantasies,” “Sex Talk.”

Quote
In July 2014*, he seems to have started a second account that was linked to his home in Oxon Hill, Maryland, where he spent his time lobbying against causes like same-sex marriage. The birthday listed in the data for Duggar’s first account is February 3, 1988, one month off Duggar’s actual birthday of March 3, 1988. The birthday listed for the second account is March 2, 1988.

The two accounts overlap by a period of a few months. When he launched the second account, Duggar paid an initial fee of $250 that appears to have gone toward the purchase of an “affair guarantee”:

Customers who buy 1,000 credits for $250 receive a money-back “affair guarantee,” if they don’t have an affair within three months.

Quote
The second account, which was registered in July of 2014, was paid on a monthly basis until May of 2015. We’ve reached out to TLC, the Family Research Council, and a spokesman for the Duggar family for comment and will update if we hear back.

The problem with cheaters is that they are narcissists. If their spouse does not give into their every sexual demand, they see it as an excuse to cheat. They love their genitals more than anything or anyone else.  :thumbsdown:
