Oldest Duggar Child Now Antigay Activist, Will The Other 18 Follow Suit?

DuggarIs antigay hate a Duggar family value? Josh Duggar, the oldest of the clan of children who are the focus of TLC’s reality series 19 Kids and Counting (which its worth noting is the sequel to the 2004 special which bore the title 14 Children and Pregnant Again) has indicated it might be. The fundamentalist Christian Arkansas-native has accepted a position as executive director with Family Research Council, which according to GLAAD “has been classified as an antigay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and has a long history of attacking the LGBT community and their friends, family and allies.”

Duggar made the announcement via Twitter yesterday.

Will Duggar’s employment opportunity have a negative impact on 19 Kids and Counting? Do gays actually watch anything on TLC besides Here Comes Honey Boo Boo? GLAAD thinks so.

“If Josh Duggar wants to make a living dehumanizing and denigrating LGBT people and their families, that’s his business, but FRC’s lies and stereotypes need to be treated as such,” said GLAAD Spokesperson Wilson Cruz. “Josh’s new boss Tony Perkins has actually accused LGBT equality advocates of being pawns of the devil. Fans of his family’s reality show ought to know that.”

But is Duggar really a homophobe or just a guileless pawn of the conservative organization? Just days ago the entire Duggar family —what seems like 1,200 of them — welcomed out and pregnant NBC correspondent Jenna Wolfe into their home to film a segment on parenting for Today. Check it out below.

      So are these shows actual things, and if you watch them will you post your suicide videos?

      They think they are special because God blessed them with so many kids. Wrong! They simply enjoy fucking and do it a lot and don’t use birth control. It has nothing to do with a deity!

      Good grief. That poor mother. Talk about throwing a hot dog down a hallway.

      They are everything wrong with America in one self-absorbed, egocentric, homogenized family. There has to be one homo in that brood, however, because that is how god messes with hubris of this level. I’m guessing a few lesbians.

      This show has now become anti-gay bigoted propaganda. Let Discovery and TLC know how you feel! Let them know you will start contacting their advertisers.

      How do you become Executive Director of anything with just a GED? DC is a town where not having a grad degree is a handicap, and he is an Exec Director without a HS diploma?
