As much as I enjoy reading and snarking about the Duggars, I would hate for them to be cancelled. I want to see what happens to the younger kids as they get older. I really hope they aren't cancelled. I kind of feel like I watched the kids grow up.

I agree. I really don't like them, and enjoy the snarking, but don't want the show to get cancelled. My reasoning is that I want it to stay on the air in hopes of a shit show. I am waiting with fingers-crossed for one of the Duggar kids to rebel or mess up in some way. I want the cameras there when it happens.

I want them to go out in a blaze of glory like jon and eventually kate did. :twisted:

Obviously not quite the same, but have them be upfront with their beliefs and show their true colours. No more whitewashing.

Keeping the show on the air keeps us talking. Keeping us talking feeds the rumor mill. The rumor mill puts some of it into mainstream. That makes them have to keep some stuff not has whackadoo as I believe they have been in the past. In some ways we are making them change.

Dont get me wrong, I am not one of those people that scream "free speech!" when people face the consequences of their hurtful opinions (Think of the whole duck dynasty debacle) The first amendment protects the people from the government infringing on these rights. it doesn't create a right to a TV show.

Having said that, the Duggars are open about their views. Why should the show get cancelled purely because they flaunted these already very well known views?

When people are offended by peoples actions, then they should stop fueling the fire. You cant strong arm people to believe your way. If people are that offended, they should stop watching the show, not force a network to cancel something even though it is wildly popular. It will just cause opposite backlash (Chick fil-a, and again, duck dynasty)

The Duggars are on the wrong side of history, time will prove them wrong as public perception subtly shifts. But trying burying opinions that you dont like isnt the right way to approach it.

Also, what would we snark on?!

Exactly, don't cancel them, just put their feet to the fire. I am sick of TLC and other channels putting ignorant people up on pedestals. :angry-banghead:

I read some of the comments from that site. I noticed a lot of them said they were gay or lesbian and LOVE the Duggars. Didn't DQ's robocall compare gays to pedophiles? ( sorry, I don't fully remember the details of the robocall.)

And I would agree with poster above. I want them to go out in a blaze of glory like Jon and Kate. Lol.

YES!

I would love to see that show being canceled. Although cameras may prevent J’ichelle and Boob from abusing kids, the show is emotional abuse itself. These poor kids deserve some privacy. And I also believe that as much as cameras prevent abuse, they prevent kids from leaving Kool-aid drinking cult.

And... Without show these attention whores would find different ways to make everyone look to them. Without professional writers, editors and PR-specialists, how long it would take till one hateful, uneducated family destroys a public image they have now?

I wonder if they get cancelled would some of the kids feel freer to escape? I feel like some of the older kids are not only trapped by Jim Bob, but the confines of the TLC contract; if they flee, wouldnt there be a potential for legal issues because they didnt fulfill their appearances?

Now that they are adults they have to sign their contracts for themselves, essentially trapping them in the family for that season. If the show was cancelled and there was no contract, they could pretty easily run and make some quick and easy cash to get them by until they find work by selling a few stories.

I think if they werent in the spotlight anymore maybe JB and Michelle could be more like Ma and Pa Keller, their kids who left the flock are still welcome to come around and be a part of the family. Who am I kidding, they will be like the Jeub parents no doubt if one leaves the flock.

That's already interesting to see how different the younger kids are from the 7-8 older ones : the show obviously diminished the level of abuse, cancelling it might bring it back ... They are more and more wordly, which if it continues might give some of the middle/ younger kids an opportunity to escape ... The show is exploitation but probably make the lives of those kids easier ...

I would rather JB be forced to set aside a decent amount of money for those kids-in private accounts that only they can access.

Children working in reality TV should have all privacy/safety, monetary and educational protections in place, similar to those provided by the SAG to other child/young adult professionals.

Why shouldn't Jana, JD or even Josie be personally paid for selling their stories? JB profiting off the kids' private moments is exploitation.

She compared transsexuals to pedophiles I believe. Mullet is a nut bag. :cray-cray:

This should add fuel to the fire:

Josh Duggar To Lead Rally Against Marriage Equality in Arkansas

Tomorrow, the Family Research Council and its Arkansas affiliate will join with Rick Scarborough’s Vision America to hold an anti-marriage-equality rally in Little Rock.

Among the speakers at the rally — which follows the state supreme court’s decision to take up a marriage case — will be Arkansas native Josh Duggar, the TLC reality show star and the executive director of FRC’s political arm.

• Mr. Joshua Duggar – Executive Director of FRC Action

• Mr. Jerry Cox – Founder and President of Family Council

• Senator Bart Hester – Arkansas State Senate

• Representative Bob Ballinger – Arkansas House of Representatives

• Pastor Happy Caldwell – Founder and President of Victory Television Network

• Pastor Derick Easter – New St. Hurricane Missionary Baptist Church

The Arkansas Family Council urges members to turn out in Little Rock:

Are you ready to make your voice heard to the Arkansas Supreme Court about the sanctity of marriage?

Are you tired of judges running roughshod over the will of Arkansas’ voters?

If you are, then I want to invite you to an important rally on the Capitol Steps in Little Rock one week from today.

On Wednesday, November 19, at 11:00 AM Arkansans will rally in support of traditional marriage. This is an opportunity for everyone—especially ministers—to make their voices heard in saying marriage in Arkansas should remain the union of one man and one woman.

And it was a scare campaign about how making all public restrooms open to anyone would endanger children because predators could just walk in. Well, hello that can happen anyway.

Once again fundies use fear as a way to control others.

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
