Petition Launched To Cancel “19 Kids And Counting” Because Of Duggars Anti-Gay Ways

MICHELLE DUGGAR

Thousands of people have already signed a Change.org petition calling for TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting, because of the Duggar family’s animosity toward the LGBT community.

San Jose resident Jim Wissick launched the petition, he explains, because the fertile family “has been using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering against gays and transgendered people. “You need to take a stand on the side of justice and cancel their show.”

In August, Michelle Duggar recorded a robocall encouraging residents to fight against a trans-inclusive discrimination bill, claiming transgender women are just “males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female.”

Last week, the Duggars posted a Facebook photo of themselves kissing and encouraged other married couples to share their own. The Bilerico Report’s John Becker reported that a photo of him kissing his husband was taken down and he was banned from their page.

And last year eldest Duggar son, Josh, took a job as a lobbyist for the Family Research Council, one of the most virulent anti-gay groups in the country.

Wissick’s petition currently has more than 13,000 signatures, but he’s hoping to reach 100,000.
