Last night Bill Maher expressed his opinion about the 19 Kids and Counting family, the Duggars. Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that Josh (one of the 19 children of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar) molested 4 of his sisters, one as young as five years old, plus a cousin or a babysitter (depending on who you talk to) over the course of several years whilst he was a teenager. Michelle and Jim Bob were informed of this, waited for Arkansas statue of limitations to pass, and did absolutely nothing to help their daughters. In fact, they never even mention their daughters.
In what was an attempt to minimize the situation and make this seem “normal” a relative came to Josh’s defense saying that anyone would do molest children if they knew they could get away with it:
Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh. We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggar’s home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling.
Well, last night, Bill Maher weighed in on the Duggars, calling them the “biggest freaks in the world.” He goes on to say that he feels that having 19 children is selfish, reasoning that we have a serious overpopulation problem:
We have a population issue. Did you ever read the statistic that if everyone lived as an American we would need five planet Earths for the resources? It’s because they read in their dusty old stupid book, things like “be fruitful and multiply”, which made sense when there was eight people on Earth.
