‘Praying For Our Nation’: Duggars Post Biblical ‘Wicked Ways’ Verse Hours After Gay Marriage Ruling


The Duggars posted a controversial statement hours after the Supreme Court ruled same-sex couples have the right to marry.

It was just a few weeks ago that nation was focused on the Duggar family, Jim Bob and Michelle, and their tragic sexual molestation scandal caused by son Josh. After their devastatingly poor Fox News interviews, it seemed they went back into hiding, but they have been increasingly active on social media.

Now, they're creating more controversy.

On the Duggar Family Official Facebook page late Friday afternoon, the family posted an image of a biblical quote, with the caption, "Praying for our nation today."

That quote, above, is 2 Chronicles 7:14 and reads:

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 

There's little question as to its intent.

"The Duggar family of '19 Kids and Counting' seem to be one group that is not okay with the decision," Examiner.com writes, referring to the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling. "They have never been shy about their thoughts on gay marriage."

"The family went to their Facebook page today and shared a picture," the article continues. "They even took it as far as to change their profile picture to this photo."

People are arguing back and forth and even fans of the Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" are not happy about what they shared. Several people are saying that this family has no right to judge considering they are not perfect either and Josh recently had a sexual molestation scandal come out. Some people are sticking up for the Duggars, but it has cause a ton of controversy for this family.
