Fans of TLC's reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting" have created a petition to support the Christian family amid a push by LGBT activists to get the show canceled because Michelle Duggar campaigned against a pro-LGBT ordinance in her community.
In August, Michelle actively campaigned against an ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that would've prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. According to critics, the ordinance had several negative consequences, including allowing transgendered men, or men who identify as female, to use women's restrooms.
"In the past few days, liberal extremists have launched a full-scale attack on the Duggars, demanding that The Learning Channel cancel the Duggars' popular reality TV show," reads the pro-Duggar petition. more >>

One of the reasons to stay tuned is the report about the return of Julianne Morris Polaha in the show as Amy Wilson. Although rumors are scant about the alum's return, followers of the program may remember her character as one of Sharon Newman's friends back in the '90s when she and Nick were still in their teenage years.
