Benham Brothers Call on Christians to Defend Duggar Family as Gay Activists Initiate "Huge Petition" to Boot "19 Kids and Counting" From Television

John-Henry Westen : Nov 21, 2014  LifeSiteNews

"The Duggars have always been an example of Christian love for each other and society. It's time for Americans to stand with them against this latest manifestation of anti-Christian bullying." -David and Jason Benham

A Change.org petition by gay activists has garnered nearly 100,000 signatures asking The Learning Channel to cancel the hugely popular "19 Kids and Counting" show.

Bob and Michelle Duggar, an upstanding Christian family, have warmed the hearts of Americans for many years, allowing the public a bird's eye view into their home full of love, excitement, care and sometimes hilarious chaos.

Now TV stars David and Jason Benham, and former Fox News host Steven Crowder, are urging pro-family advocates to defend America's most-beloved family by signing a new petition urging The Learning Channel (TLC) to keep their show on the air.

The Benham Brothers—who saw their own popular HGTV show cancelled because of their conservative pro-life and pro-family views—have condemned the effort to remove the Duggars as being part of "the same intolerant agenda that attacked our family."

That agenda "is now demonizing one of the most wholesome families in America," said the brothers. "The Duggars have always been an example of Christian love for each other and society. It's time for Americans to stand with them against this latest manifestation of anti-Christian bullying."

The Duggars' critics have called for the family to be removed from TLC because Michelle Duggar did a robo-call to protect Fayetteville, Arkansas girls from a bill that would allow men to use female locker rooms, showers, and restrooms.

"I don't believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls," Duggar said in August. "We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child."

Duggar opponents called Michelle's efforts "fear mongering," and demanded that TLC cancel the show.

The anti-Duggar petition, which was launched in August, has nearly 100,000 petition signatures after E! Network, Huffington Post, and other media outlets ran stories highlighting the petition effort this week.
