Duggar Family Helped Passed Anti-LGBT Measure

Duggar Family
Thousands of fans and followers expressed their support to the Duggar family after they got their wish this Christmas. The Duggar family helped get an anti-LGBT bill get passed in their hometown Fayetteville, Arkansas last 9 December 2014.

The new bill seeks to help overturn a measure that would have prevented landlords and business owners to evict or fire people based on their gender identity. During the campaign, the Duggars also donated US$10,000 to three opponents of the Ordinance 119.

Back in August, some jealous homosexual group created a petition online to cancel the television show, "19 Kids and Counting" after Michelle Duggar allegedly asked voters to repeal the law in a recorded robocall. The group's hatred of anything that goes against their twisted and immoral beliefs stemmed from another incident where Michelle and husband Jim Bob allegedly deleted photos of same-sex couples from an impromptu Facebook challenge.

Despite the pathetic backlash, the couple stood their ground by posting a telling Bible verse on their Facebook page. It read: "We will always stand for truth and the values we hold dear without compromise, but we will do so in love and kindness — treating others well even if we don’t agree with them and we will do so without hateful words."

A counter movement from thousands of fans also created a counter-petition to save the show, which has remained one of the most-watched shows on air today.

The show is about the Duggar family, which consists of parents Jim Bob and Michelle and their 19 children — nine girls and ten boys (including two sets of twins), all of whose names begin with the letter "J". Since the show began, three of the children have gotten married, with the oldest raising three of his own. The series began on 29 September 2008.
