    I watched to this on Dish Network. Not sure of the channel but I have to say, it was very interesting. They all have their part of chores and what not and it really seems to work.
    I could NEVER do that though, ug.

    It would suck living in that family. The parents do not have enough time to give each of their children the attention they need, it isn`t fair to them at all to keep squirting them out.

    Think about it.. While we "normal" people have 1-2 babies these super-religious types have 20, the percentage of these people will increase and soon we become the outsiders and want to become like them and everyone will be like that, and have 400 babies..
    This is just one subtle way of taking over the world

    Those kids aren`t going to college because they don`t want to. They want to stay home and become ministers or some crazy baby-machines like their mom. Condoms and Birth control aren`t even an option for these people because that would be "sinful" by stopping God`s intentions of "creating sex for having children" only. Sex for pleasure? Ha! Of course not!

    And of course her last baby came out really fast, her trap is probably the diameter of a bowling ball already.

    I`m one of 7 kids myself, but it`s not because my family`s religious. It`s because my parents got divorced after 3 and then had 2 kids of their own on each side. They`re not concerned about "God`s gifts", they just liked sex. I guess... I mean, my mom`s a whore, so that`s obvious.

    yeah i saw this on the news this moring....the interviewer asked the father if they wanted more children.... and he said "uhhh i usually leave that up to her" and points to his wife. The wife smiles and shakes her head. Yup. We want to have more.

    sounds to me that she is performing some ancient voodoo on her husband to overpopulate the world with her own children......

    As a family project the Duggars built a 7000 sqft. home debt free! Both Jim Bob and Michelle are licensed real estate agents.They often host and facilitate the Jim Sammon’s Financial Freedom Seminar.

    Just another thing that the belief in the Christian God does. Sad really, I saw the special on TV too. They need to put a cork in it. I have spent many years trying to figure out where all this "faith" comes from and the only conclusion I can come up with is complete weakness to control ones own destiny.

    This is disgusting. Not because their religiosity offends my sensibilities, but because there are not enough people in the world abstaining from having children to offset the effects of such uncontrolled reproduction. Overpopulation will kill us all, and by the time the majority realizes it, it will be too late.

    "i saw their shows on the health channel. i feel really sorry for those girls. they don`t let them wear pants."

    I once had a neighbor who had the ridiculous notion God would smite her for wearing pants. I would have died to have been there the first time she tried on a pair. Poor kids. I`d feel sorry for them if they weren`t beyond pity.

    What is so wrong with having a big family? If the kids are happy and the parents can afford to care for them at least adequately, more power to them.
    I obviously have no idea what it`s like in that household but it seems that they`re figured out some good ways to be efficient...they don`t seem to be any better or worse parents than any regular family.
    I just wish maybe they would consult the kids they have before deciding to have more...or if they`re going to have such a big family, why not adopt?

    I agree, if you want that many kids, why can`t you adopt? The way I see it, every time you decide to have a kid, another orphan goes without a family. Not to say that you can`t have your own kids, but if you want to have a billion, at least give another kid a chance. What about that JOY philosophy of theirs? Others come before You. You may want another kid, but there`s thousands of orphans who *need* a family.

    And I was wondering how can they possibly love and cherish each child? It`s hard to keep track of seventeen children, let alone talk to them and know them as a person.

    i saw a documentary on this family back when they had like 15. i feel bad for the kids. They`re all really weird. They run the house like a little...uh... sort of a mix between a military academy and like a preschool and like a factory assembly line. The way the kids are raise i bet their social rejects at school. But thats ok cus they have 16 brothers and sisters to play with at home.

    The only thing i really remember is they went to the grociery store in a big van, all the boys had red polo shirts with khaki pants and all the girls had the same red dress with like white tights. they looked so freaky like a little army.

    What is the issue what with them having a bunch of kids? The issue is, if everyone in America bred like the Duggars do, in less then 50 years or so we would wind up like China.
    Scary fact, do the math, if all of their kids decide to have 17 kids you would have 289 grandkids, and lets say all of those 289 grandkids decide to have 17 kids you will get 4,913 great grandkids.
    Its sad that those girls will probaly be nothing more then baby machines. That family is part of the quiverfull movement http://www.quiverfull.com/
    So the girls are probaly thought they are only good for staying home and keeping care of the house and kids. Really sad

    "What is so wrong with having a big family?"

    If you hold the view that the Earth is a bigger place than it actually is, that its resources are proportionately near infinite and have a self-centered view with little to no regard for the *other* people you inevitably and inexorably must share this planet with... nothing, I guess. If instead you have enough insight to realize we inhabit a closed system of limited resources and enough foresight to realize and fully appreciate the threat and dangers of overpopulation, you`d have every reason to object to raising a family of 17 children with no end in sight. It`s incredibly selfish and arrogant to act in total disregard for the community (I use this term seemingly erroneously to refer to the human species) in which one lives. Most people contribute to overpopulation more than they realize, but they`ve no comparison to the Duggars. It`s abhorrent in every sense of the word.

    <i>Southern Baptist, actually.</i>

    Are they? I thought they were Pentacostal. Have you seen their website? They blame birth control for a miscarriage -- through some twisted logic -- so they decided to just keep having kids.

    I can`t wait til statistics catch up with them and at least a few turn out gay.

    I agree that their lifestyle with the chores for the kids and all is admirable, but I`d rather get an education.

To quote Stewie from Family Guy.."Is there any tread on the tires or is it like throwing a hotdog down a hallway?" These people are not having kids because their gifts, its flippin cheap slave labor. Where do I sign. Err... kids be sure to sleep with one another and make babies like momma. HOME SCHOOLING what a crock, I can already guess how "socially misfitted" these jagbags are already, by all means keep having more and home school them just to make sure they grow up being hated by society. Everyone remember the idiot, home schooled kid who won this years spelling bee? He makes these kids look like lab mice. BTW I don`t want to hear any remarks about how great home schooled kids turn out. I`ve personally known 6 of them and they were all idiots with the social graces of a

    I from Arkansas, I know plenty of Arkansan Southern Baptist, the girls are not required to wear skirts or dresses. It`s Pentacostal you guys are thinking of.

    As for the big house thing, not only do they have a giant house. They have a giant piece of land around the house, so that way every kid can build a house on the land, where they can raise there families. However if they keep having kids the houses are either gonna be very small or a few kids will sharing a house together.

    I think it`s stupid to have 17 kids and possibly more, and I think it`s even stupider to keep them sheltered like they do, but it`s there decision if they want to go at it like rabbits on viagra and speed who can stop them.

    As I see it the only way they`re gonna stop is if someone cuts off the husband`s wang, and throws it into a volcano.
