Petition to Cancel '19 Kids and Counting' for Anti-Gay Views Gains Steam

By    |   Wednesday, 19 Nov 2014 06:44 PM

A petition on Change.org is calling for TLC to cancel "19 Kids and Counting" because of the Duggar family's anti-LGBT sentiments.

The petition, titled "End LGBTQ fear mongering by the Duggars," was started by Jim Wissik of San Jose, California, and had about 34,000 supporters on Wednesday afternoon.

The petition complains about a political recording by Michelle Duggar against a housing law affecting the transgender community in Arkansas.

The petition also takes issues with Josh Duggar’s association the Family Research Center, which the petition characterizes as “hate-filled, anti-gay organization.”

A message addressed to TLC posted on the petition says: “The Duggars have 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.”

Last week, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar posted on Facebook a photo of them kissing and encouraged other married couples to share similar images. John Becker said he posted a photo of himself with his husband but the image was removed from the comments.

Twitter users posted sharp responses.
