Is anyone else offended by the Duggar family? I put them in the same category as Miracle Whip.. just offensive. Michelle and Jim Bob practiced birth control when they first married and shortly after stopped to conceive their first child. They then practiced birth control again only to stop shortly after to try and conceive another child. They lost that child to miscarriage and blamed it on the use of birth control. After this, Michelle and Jim Bob decided to allow God to determine the number of children they should have. Michelle started giving birth approximately every year and a half after this...
I'm sorry, but if every couple decided to "allow God" to determine the number of children we should have, we would have an even larger population problem than we currently have today. Her last child was miscarried and the child before that was born prematurely.. I think that's God's way of saying "Sweetie, maybe you should be done now." Michelle continues to say that she wants MORE?? Honestly, why do you need 20 kids? What is the purpose? I understand maybe back in the day people had a lot of kids so that they could work on farms, and the survival rate of children was not that high. However, now? in present day? There is absolutely no reason to have that many children. ESPECIALLY because they are all going to have a long and hopefully healthy life. Their oldest child, Josh, is now married and has two children. Lets take all of the 19 Duggar children and presume that they get married and have two children, that is 38 children. This is assuming that they only have two children each.. which is probably not going to be the case, but who knows. The youngest child, Josie, is already an aunt and can barely talk!
The thing that really pisses me off is that Discovery Networks provided the construction and furnishings for the home that they built. We honestly couldn't think of anything better to do with all that money? We wanted to give them a brand new home to house ALL of their children? This whole ideal of having numerous kids and not using any form of birth control is total against my own;however, I just feel that the whole show and promotion of it is extremely ridiculous.
With that being said, I can't wait to compete with the Duggar familly for food in the future, all 19 of them..possibly 20, should God allow them to conceive just one more time.
