So.  I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but the Duggars of TLC’s “18 Kids and Counting” fame are expecting their 19th kid.  And to this I say, “Really?  REALLY?”

I feel like this cannot be healthy for anyone involved.

For those of you who don’t know, the Duggars are part of this Quiverfull movement, which basically means, have all the sex you want, use no birth control, and God will give you kids when he deems it necessary.  I have no problems with being religious and having complete faith in God, but I think this might just be a little extreme.

Apparently, the Duggars have found some fame (infamy?) on their TLC show, but whether the people who watch it do so for the positive message of faith or just for the entertainment value (because watching Michelle sit around and breast-feed child No. 18 while the rest of the family does laundry and cooks never gets old) remains to be seen.

However, I think the part that bothers me most about the Duggars is what they’ve done about naming their children.  Because all 18 of them have names that begin with the letter ‘J.’  In order: Joshua, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer, and Jordyn-Grace.

Gag me. With. A chainsaw.

The oldest, Joshua, was married last September, and he and his wife, Anna, are expecting their first child next month, a girl, to be named Mackynzie Renee.  Luckily, Joshua and Anna have decided to use the letter ‘M’ rather than ‘J’ to avoid confusion.  So little Mac Duggar will have an aunt or uncle younger than her.  Fabulous.

In all seriousness, I appreciate the fact that the Duggars are raising their children to have such an unfailing faith in God because it’s definitely something you don’t see everyday.  But think about this: if each Duggar child has 20 children, that means Jim-Bob and Michelle will end up with 400 grandchildren.

I’d love to see Christmas at that house.

    I was just expressing my view on this yesterday at work, she needs her hoo-ha sewed, tied and burned. They are nuts, exactly how much attention are these children getting from there parents and what kind of life is being home schooled? No football games, no band? WTF??? Good article Meghan!!!

    I agree, enough is enough!

    I guess being an accountant, my first thought is how anyone could AFFORD 18+ children? I’m sure the TV show and media attention doesn’t hurt in that regard, and it seems like people don’t mind donating items to people who don’t know how to masturbate. Also, being agnostic, I try to respect people’s beliefs as much as I can even though I might not understand their motivations. This behavior confounds me though, as much as the ones who avoid medical procedures in favor of the healing power of prayer. Were we not given the ability to think and invent and progress for a reason? All this seems like is a grab for attention, and here we are talking about it, so Duggars FTW…

    Best quote I have heard about the Duggars so far: “It’s a vagina, not a clown car!” Where are the physicians saying “You know, you have had multiple c-sections, this could kill you?” Our God is a wise and merciful God, but he gave us common (or uncommon?) sense for a reason! Love the blog. I went to high school with your Mom and Uncle!

    If everyone committed environmental genocide like these parents are doing our planet would be a world of hurt. I am so sick of all this publicity for doing nothing more than overpopulating a world that is already stretched to the braking point.

    It seems like religion in some cases causes many more problems than it solves.

  6. Teresa Caves Says:

    I sure hopes she remains healthy and alive during the childbirth of this one. It would be awful if she lost her life and all of these children are without a mother.

    This family is in dire need of psychotherapy. In what universe does it seem necessary to procreate 19 times–unless, of course, you’re a cockroach? Maybe, like Brad and Angelina, they’re trying to form their own team of sorts. Goooo God!

    And what man in his right mind (which obviously Jim Bob isn’t) would want to screw a hole the size of the grand canyon? Is he that desperate to plant his seed? Sorry Jim Bob, but your ego is bigger than…well, your wife’s hoo-ha!

    Well, this crap certainly wouldn’t go over well in China, now would it? Hey, maybe that’s their evil plot; create a second China but on American tax-payers dollars? And, if I ever hear that the Duggar parental units or any of their off spring apply for welfare, I’ll personal go over yank Jim Bob’s wanker off!
