I can understand the "world being overpopulated" argument, although I gave a solution in my previous post - combating it by changing our beliefs, as we create our own realities.

Surely as long as the family can afford to make sure their own children are healthy and well cared for, then it doesn't matter that they have so many? If their kids were ill and miserable then I'd agree that the parents shouldn't have had so many since they obviously couldn't handle the responsibility, but it seems to work for all of them.

Like I said, they have the right to have as many kids as they want, I just don't agree with it for personal reasons.

definitely unusual, but there's a difference between unusual and wrong. if it isn't burdening them or anyone else, i don't see any reason to condemn it.

Agreed, I can't see any logical reason to condemn the Duggars. I'll save that for idiots like Casey Anthony who would rather party than care for her own child or the countless parents that leave their kids in hot cars each year or leave them in a bathtub to drown or the couples who aren't fit to have kids and use them as punching bags or worse.

My problem with the Duggars is that I think they're cult-like.

I don't like Casey Anthony but I have a far better reason for it.

I think believing someone is cult-like is an acceptable reason to dislike them. Please don't get me wrong, I don't wish them any harm, and I don't harbor any ill will towards them. But I still think I have a right to dislike them.


Casey Anthony is horrible, but I don't think she has anything to do with the Duggers.

Nobody said you didn't have that right, I personally can't see any reason to dislike them and as a matter of fact, I happen to admire them. When the Duggars show me a reason to dislike them then I may change my mind but until then I'll save my contempt for a certain beotch in Florida.

I feel the same. They creep me out a little bit.

Donny Osmond's a lovely guy. Do you like him?

His music's not for everyone, but as a person, he's really nice.

The Jackson 5 were good too.

All Duggars over the age of 5 take music lessons. So they can form their own ensemble, no problem.

The 18 Duggar kids still haven't gotten past the Wolfgramm family, better known as The Jets. They had NINETEEN kids (17 naturally and 2 adopted)!! But they weren't all in the group at the same time.
