TLC Cancels the Duggar show 19 Kids and Counting

19 Kids and Cancelled

It was revealed  recently that 19 Kids and Counting has been cancelled by TLC. I’m fine with that.

I’m fine with a private company cancelling a contract with an employee because they are wanting to distance themselves from a media nightmare…. or because they refuse to support the Duggars fucked up sense of handling sexual abuse situations, either way it’s a good move to make.

However, I can hear the cries and tears of the conservative christian right as another “poor” christian is “persecuted” because of their “faith.” Give me a fucking break.

Quite literally they are not being persecuted.

It’s not Persecution 

It’s quite common in the entertainment industry that actors are dropped by Networks and TV Shows for dumb shit they do off set. This isn’t anything new.

Cynthia Watros (Lost, Titus) and Michelle Rodriguez (Lost, Fast n Furious) were both relieved of their acting positions on Lost after being arrested for DUI’s in Hawaii.

The common thread in this is that they were actors on a fucking show… Not that they are Christians being fucking persecuted for their faith.
