Another soldier for the Lord: Disgraced 19 Kids and Counting reality stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say they plan on adopting another child in 2016.
If Jim Bob, 50, and Michelle, 48, are allowed to adopt, it would be the couple’s twentieth child.
A source close to the family says:
They’ve been mulling it over for a long time, and they feel the time is right to get legal advice and get the process underway. They’re looking to adopt a child in the New Year.
The Duggars are part of a radical Christian lifestyle known as the Quiverfull movement, a movement where children are considered canon fodder in the Lord’s army: culture warriors bred to promote an ugly, intolerant, sexist, and homophobic brand of Christian extremism.
Last year TLC cancelled “19 Kids and Counting,” the obnoxious reality television show that celebrated the Duggar’s twisted conservative Christian values after it was revealed that Josh Duggar, the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, sexually assaulted four of his underage sisters plus an additional underage female victim.
Compounding and contributing to the crime, a “conspiracy to “forgive and forget” forged by the Duggar parents and church leaders allowed Josh Duggar to escape criminal prosecution for sexually assaulting his underage victims.
Yet ultimately, all of the Duggar kids are victims: victims of Christian patriarchy, victims of Christian homeschooling, victims of Christian parents who raise their children to be ideological props in their perverted and deluded fantasy of Christian dominion.
As a product of the Quiverfull movement, the Duggar children are raised to be cannon fodder in a Christian Holy War. As such, one must question the wisdom of allowing the Duggars to adopt and indoctrinate yet another child.
