Wow! Thank you all! But more is needed!
Nov 24, 2014 — I want to thank everyone who worked to make this petition take off like it has!
We reached our goal of 100,000 so quickly once the media picked up the story I decided we need to go to 500k! Please keep sharing the link to your FB friends, Twitter, Google+ and other social media outlets! Please also write letter to the editor of your local and non-local papers telling them why you think the Duggar's bully pulpit needs to be taken from them.
The Duggar's supporters have started a number of counter petitions and some are moving quickly.
This is not about disagreement with the Duggar's opinions, but a reaction to their efforts to oppose legislation to protect and grant equal rights to the most victimized members of our society.
In case you were not aware, The Learning Channel is owned by Discovery Communications. Discovery Communications has a code of ethics for their employees (and the Duggars are employed by them) http://ir.corporate.discovery.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=222412&p=irol-govconduct
The Duggars are clearly in violation of this policy and yet Discovery has taken NO action against them what so ever.
Keep fighting for people power!
