If you were trying to destroy our Nation, you would have to destroy our Faith and our families. The attack on the Dugger family is designed around destroying both. Whether it's prompted by jealousy or hatred for intact families, there is little doubt that the "politics of personal destruction" is at the heart of this firestorm. The war against the Duggar family is being waged by those who reject families. Chicago Tribune article: Josh Duggar.
The Duggar Family is featured on a reality TV show call called, "19 And Counting". Josh Duggar, one of the Duggar kids, is now being persecuted by the media for something that happened over 12 years ago when he was 14 years old.
On the one hand we can say Americans tend to be guilty of the "Cult of Personality Worship". On the other hand, we still have much to learn by observing the success of those who have created a model of what "should be".
We should be proud of the Duggars for all of their contributions to our understanding of how a family can work. The Duggar family never advertised themselves as being perfect. There is no such thing. The point of any reality TV show is to demonstrate how they handle the surprises of everyday life.
This latest chapter is on how they handle problems with their children. This is a teachable moment. Their story is one of how we can survive our own failures, how to ask for forgiveness, how we can grow up and become mature adults who are capable of changing so that we are not held down by past failures. We all have our own stories, but here is the essence of the Duggar's story in their own words:
"That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles everyday. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us — even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey — the good times and the difficult times — cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything."

True Hypocrisy: Planned Parenthood and many public school sex education classes are based on the presumption that kids want to do these acts. Even those who have never thought of deviant behaviors are taught and enticed by their classes to venture into areas that should meet with parental disapproval. They are teaching school children that abortion is good, marriage is irrelevant, abstinence is a joke, genders are meaningless and perverted acts are normal (Newsmax article: Sex Education Classes in California). Why is our government funding programs that will show kids how to engage in this kind of behavior? http://plannedparenthoodexposed.com/facts/
I remember talking with my Senator, trying to get his support for a bill I had that would remove a sex ed mandate from our requirements. He said, "You know, I think you're right. Before I took the class, I never thought about sex. After I took the class, that's all I could think about." In some states, the goal is to start sexualizing the children from Kindergarten.
The media lynch mob is using its best efforts to cause harm to as many people as possible, but we should not join them. Those who hate the Duggars want to send a message that even they don't believe. If you look at who's pummeling the Duggars, you will find most of them are the same ones promoting worse immoral scenarios
Moral outrage is healthy when it brings about more honorable behavior, but when it comes from those who are encouraging a new level of evil beyond most people's imaginations it is hardly honest. Do they really think people should be marked for life and permanently disabled if they step into the forbidden? They don't even practice this themselves.
Try to picture a family without problems and you'll realize that there is no such thing.
I was talking with a friend who said, "Is there any teen-aged boy who doesn't have something he's embarrassed about in his past?" If you want to help America, you want to support our Faith and our families.
