Since it’s the 4th and we’re all busy grilling or whatever today’s posting is an open thread to talk about whatever you’d like and will be today’s only post. Enjoy the day and be truly terrified by the political vision of the Duggar Family. Good reason to go out and vote in every election. Imagine a country run only by the morals of Bill Gothard and the Duggars.

Some people think Christians should stay out of the political arena, but we strongly disagree. Our family believes faith and politics should go hand in hand, and we’ve seen countless examples of how that happens. For example, earlier this year, the Arkansas legislature passed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, banning all abortions after twelve weeks’ gestation—even overriding the governor’s veto to make it final. Most of us older Duggar kids went down to the capitol to lobby for this, and our oldest brother, Josh, spent a good part of the session helping guide this bill through. The effort was led by conservative Christian legislators who campaigned on the principles they believed and then followed through when they were elected.
Our nation was founded on the Bible and on Judeo-Christian principles, and we see it as our responsibility to protect those freedoms by supporting candidates who hold true to those same values and principles. Our prayer is that by sharing our political experiences with others, many will see the need to get involved, and together we can all make a difference.
