The Duggars, famous for having nineteen children and being rural backwoods Arkansas hicks, recently posted a “kissing challenge” to all married couples. Well, almost all married couples. As is the case with most nut jobs, the Duggars are very much under the influence of God, as are a multitude of their followers. It started with a simple kiss, sometimes described as “hot and steamy.”
Hot and steamy? I guess the hand-grab to the back of Pah’s head really shows that Mah will take that dry closed mouth kiss from her hunk o’ man whenever she wants it.
When the Duggars issued their challenge, they challenged “all” married couples.
Did they mean all married couples? Well absolutely not. People reported that same-sex couples were “allegedly” removed and banned from posting. After some negative attention the Duggars posted a slew of bible quotes and general sheep nonsense before releasing this:
We love these wise words from Rick Warren: ‘Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. Second is that to love someone means that you must agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.’
The Duggars aren’t a government agency, and they certainly have the right to control the content of their autonomous Facebook page, but come on. They must also have a hearty moderation team happening. It was difficult to find a comment related to the same-sex issue at that hadn’t slipped through the cracks or was too new to have been caught and deleted.

That was posted to a picture of an interracial couple and most likely slipped through the front line of defense against the gays destroying Jesus. There was one from this morning that hadn’t been deleted yet as well.
Did gay couples start posting their pictures more when the Duggars started deleting them? Probably. Activism against stupidity is a prominent strategy of Facebook politics.
The Duggars have nineteen children because God wants them to be fruitful and multiply. Good for them. Luckily their image of marriage as well as their delusional perspective of American culture can be combated by not watching that garbage.
I can proudly say I live in a Duggar-free home.
