Ok this one is completely for fun....we're going to play "what if" ...as in what if a Duggar child did any of the following and how do you think the Duggar family would respond?
1) Came out as gay--do you think they'd have the nerve to even come out at all? Would they instead remain single and be what was once a "confirmed bachelor" or just a single missionary working in a far off country? ....I have a theory about 2 of the Duggar children myself...and odds are that at least 2 of them will be gay....so how do you the Jim Bob and Michelle would handle that conversation?
2) Married outside their faith--they do travel out of the country, a few have said they want to be missionaries when they grow up, so what if one does become a missionary and marries someone from another country, for example, who isn't a Christian...or what if they meet someone through the TLC crew--a son or daughter of the crew--who happens to be Jewish or Hindu or something? Or maybe a Duggar child does go off to college and meets someone of another faith and they decide to get elope? Imagine that conversation?
3) Opted for a secular life of fame--one of the kids decides they like life in front of the camera and want a life in television--even as a preacher...but maybe on the Broadway stage!
4) Decided to wear pants and be more like cousin amy....one day one of the girls comes downstairs for breakfast in jeans and a t-shirt and announces she's moving in with Cousin Amy and going to be the keyboard player for her band
5) Announced an out of wedlock pregnancy....one of the boys knocks up a girl? One of the girls gets knocked up? Afterall, they were/are very pro-Sarah Palin and it happened in her family...
Ok so these are all hypotheticals....but what do you think Jim Bob and Michelle would do...they have always professed such love and devotion to their family, always spoken of Christ-like qualities....how would they act, how would they respond, in situations like these? Any ideas? Kind of fun to imagine isn't it? I'll give you my thoughts after you all play around with it for awhile.....
