The deeply religious Duggar family (as in the 19 Kids and Counting Duggars) were the victims of an extortion attempt several months back. On Thursday a judge sentenced Teresa Hunt to four months of house arrest for attempting the crime.

According to a report from RadarOnline, Hunt claimed that the Duggar’s cousin, Amy Duggar, was having an illicit affair with singer James Garrett. It turns out a grudge Hunt held over a payment dispute for professional photography s19 Kids and Countinghe did for Garrett triggered the senseless criminal act.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are the parents of nineteen children and the grandparents of a granddaughter and a grandson. They live highly moral lives as does their extended family including cousin Amy Duggar. Hunt very clearly knew her allegations could wreak havoc for the entire Duggar family, but what she didn’t understand was their strong faith in God and in one another. The Duggar’s knew Amy didn’t do what Hunt claimed. James Garrett even came to her defense with a series of photos that showed the only relationship the two shared was a musical one.

Do you think Teresa Hunt’s sentence is harsh enough for the crime she tried committing? After an attempt at extorting $10,000 from the Duggars and Discovery Communications—the company that owns the TLC network on which 19 Kids and Counting appears—it seems she’s been let off the hook very easily.

Michelle Duggar what are you thinking???

So anyway Michelle Duggar is in the news. She’s not in the news because she’s pregnant again. She’s in the news because she thinks that overpopulation is a lie. Yes a lie. I’m sitting here thinking what the heck is wrong with her? Yea true there are some countries that have a higher death rate, but what about countries like China that’s overpopulated. Did she forget about countries like those countries? Now everyone  is entitled to their beliefs ,Michelle included, but in my opinion some beliefs need to be keep quiet. I want to know what you guys think. What do you think about Michelle and her family.

TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” is one of the very few shows on TV that can make laundry day seem epic. But lately the brood’s activities are getting some unusual attention — from the Beltway.

Michelle Duggar, the busy matriarch raising 19 kids (she recently miscarried the 20th), is now raising eyebrows by saying that the notion of overpopulation is “a lie.”

“Because really, the entire population of the world, if they were stood  shoulder to shoulder, could fit in the city limits of Jacksonville,” Duggar told the Christian Broadcasting Network. “So  if you realize that aspect of it, you realize that we’re nowhere near  being overpopulated.” The comments have sparked both derision and support online, thanks in no small part to a recent firestorm over government-funded contraception.

Meanwhile, this week the Duggar clan’s tireless efforts on behalf of the fiery Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum were profiled by Politico, a major online news source for political junkies.

“Members of the clan follow Santorum from stop-to-stop, collecting  donations from supporters and talking up the former Pennsylvania  senator’s values and policy stances,” Politico wrote. “The Duggars themselves often serve  as a second attraction to the candidate, signing family autographs with  Bible verses.”

At this point, the Duggar clan might be big enough to constitute a political movement all by itself. But in a sharply divided partisan landscape where most TV stars try to avoid making overt political appeals, the Duggars’ stance is striking.

What do you think of their advocacy?

what do you think about the duggars?

The Duggars have always been very forthcoming about their personal struggles, so it comes as no surprise that the family announced publicly the news that their 20th child, Jubilee, had been miscarried just one month after they shared the news they were expecting.
The family also documented their tragic ordeal for their TLC reality show, “19 Kids & Counting.” On the season finale, which airs Tuesday, March 27 at 9 p.m., Jim Bob and Michelle deliver the sad news to their family. It takes a while to gather the gigantic family, and becomes even sadder when  you realize that most of the kids think the big announcement is going to be the gender of their newest sibling.
Check out a heartbreaking preview of the finale below, in which the family thinks they’re going to hear some happy news but Jim Bob and Michelle know better.
