Last week, the 19 Kids and Counting reality stars made headlines when they launched an impromptu kiss-a-thon on social media, encouraging couples everywhere to post photographs of themselves swapping spit to the Duggar’s Facebook page.
Everything was going fine until gay couples started sharing their kissy photos. The Duggars quickly deleted them. But they were careful to leave up pictures of people making out with Godzilla, Diet Coke, Tide Pods and a 14-year-old cat.
Now, it’s been uncovered that Michelle Duggar has been on a not-so-secret campaign to warn residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas that all transgender people are child predators out to rape little girls.
According to sources, Duggar has enlisted the help of an automated call system to cold call residents. When they pick up the phone, the following creepy message is played:
Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men–yes, I said men–to use women’s and girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.
Of course, this hardly the first time the Duggar family has tried to squash the rights of LGBT people. Last year, the couple endorsed sodomy-obsessed candidate Ken Cuccinelli for Virginia governor. They also encouraged their oldest son, Josh, to become an antigay activist. And they once embarked on a seven state bus tour to oppose marriage equality.
As a result of Michelle’s latest telephone scheme, an online petition calling for Duggar’s TLC reality show to be cancelled has begun circulating.
“End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars,” the petition reads. “The Duggars have been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people. You need to take a stand on the side of justice and cancel their show.”
So far the petition has garnered more than 130,000 signatures.
TLC is not yet issued a response to the petition.
