Rather than recap a few and keep editing new ones in I’m going to provide a daily round up of articles until TLC does the right thing and cancels “19 Kids & Counting” Right now they’ve pulled all reruns of the show until June 1st. The first of next month they start airing the show again. No decision on if they will pull the show permanently or just axe Josh from the show and continue on.

A few new pieces by members of NLQ’s SASBN

Joe Sands at his blog Incongruous Circumspection – Fuck You, Faceless Victims. God Forgave Us: The Josh Duggar Saga Part One and Part Deux

Samantha Field at her blog Defeating The Dragons – How Josh Duggar Is Getting Away With It


Yesterday NLQ published a piece written by S.J. Reidhead on the Josh Duggar situation and put a disclaimer on it. It should have been  made clear that her piece was sarcastic, not serious, something that wasn’t obvious to everyone. Sarcasm doesn’t always translate well on the internet.  Comments are closed now to stop the bashing. No harm was meant by either the author or anyone at NLQ. NLQ apologizes most sincerely to S.J. Reidhead for not putting a note that her piece was supposed to be read as sarcasm.

Since this is a Duggar posting, it means that Duggar fans coming here will see this six months to 2 years out of date to rant and flounce about angrily in the comments. Before all that flouncing commences please read our Duggar Fan Comment Policy first!
