  • Not trying to "nitpick" and not acknowledging whether I would or would not be appalled by a gay couple adopting 20 children but...

    You imply in the article that you would not be appalled by a gay couple adopting 20 children while at the same time in your bio to the right you refer to yourself as a "conservative Catholic."

    To me, there is a divergence in ideology. One is not much of a conservative Catholic when their own stance on such a topic flies in the face of the churches official stance on said topic. If you are unaware of the churches stance and doubt that they stand AGAINST gay adoption here is a link which addresses the topic, and there are more online I just chose the first one I can across:


    Thanks for reading.

  • My point was the same people who ridicule the Dugger's for having 20 kids would probably not have a problem with a gay couple adopting 20 kids simply because they were gay and that's the "in" thing. I'm not sure where I stand on that issue. This blog was a result of many negative comments that I read on Facebook regarding the Dugger's.

  • I believe that adopting 20 children is far better than putting any woman through bearing that many children, even though I know that Mrs. Duggar is willing. I hope that this pregnancy goes full term.

  • Its funny that if you had 20 dogs or cats your a hoarder but you can stockpile children! They should have stopped having children when they became Grandparents. Just because you can doesnt mean you should! I guess it makes for ratings though.
