Michelle Duggar and her husband Jim Bob of 19 Kids and Counting fame have been front and center in the media since word of their eldest son Josh Duggar’s sexual molestation scandal made news. Now the Duggar matriarch and patriarch are in the news again–this time taking a stand against last week’s Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.
While this likely comes as no surprise to those who follow the conservative Christian family, it’s interesting to note that Josh Duggar has stayed mum about the ruling. Just this past April, the wife of Anna Duggar and father of at least three–wife Anna Duggar is expecting baby number four, but no word has emerged on whether or not she has given birth–said at that time that the fight for gay marriage was an effort on behalf of its proponents to “silence” Christians. Now he is the silent one.
It was via Facebook that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar shared their beliefs and took their stand.
They posted the message, “Praying for our nation today,” as well as a Bible quote from 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“If my people which are called in my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s post received more than 24,000 ‘likes’ but many negative comments, too,
“Wait! So, people who allowed their son to sexually abuse their daughters are against two consenting adults getting married because they are the same gender. I’ve lost respect and patience for these people,” a follower named Yvonne Yeager responded.
Another commenter wrote, “Dear LGBT Community–Don’t worry–the same people that covered for their child molester son are praying for your eternal souls.”
Michelle Duggar likely loved what Franklin Graham had to say about the Supreme Court ruling.
