Duggars Behaving Badly in the Bahamas

Just a quick one before I leave for the airport. This came up  late last night on the Facebook page 19 Scandals and Counting. TLC’s the Duggar family went down to the Bahamas immediately after Hurricane Dorian to help with the clean up.

Good, right?   So good I wasn’t going to mention it. I thought ‘Good for them helping out.’

A few days ago  a reporter out of Jacksonville, Florida with WJXT , Vic Micolucci,  posted photos of the Duggars in the Bahamas praising them for their help and arranging to get the family chicken from Chick-Fil-A. Smiles and chicken abound.

I had wondered at the time about what they were actually doing there, helping or hindering. Why? Because of my own personal experiences going down to Louisiana to help many times in the months after Hurricane Katrina. It was no garden party, or Chick-Fil-A picnic, just hard dirty work slogging through. Sleeping in a sleeping bag I brought on the floor of an abandoned church with others from churches. Eating whatever they served us.

I shrugged and thought at least they are actually doing something, putting faith in action. Then this popped up, the words and photos of another volunteer also helping out with the hurricane clean up and it paints a far less rosy or  flattering picture of Duggars and Bates on the ground in the  Bahamas behaving with appalling entitlement and arrogance. Take from it what you will.

Apparently self aggrandizement is the motivation in all they so, sadly enough.

If you are here to defend the Duggars please read our Duggar Comment Rules before posting. There is no mercy for certain types of behavior here.
