The Duggar Family Made a Video in Support of Rick Santorum

The Duggar family has made no secret of their appreciation of presidential candidate Rick Santorum. They have campaigned for him and appeared at press events in his honor and eldest son Josh Duggar constantly tweets about Santorum and what a great dude he is.

Here Is a Christian Parody of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’

It's nothing new for religious folks to take pop culture and put their own Jesus-approved spin on it, especially if the original version of the song/show/product contains profanity or has a sexual message.
