NORFOLK, Va. — Josh Duggar, the oldest of the Duggar children from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” and E.W. Jackson, the failed candidate for Virginia Lt. Governor, headlined an anti-gay marriage rally in Norfolk on Tuesday while a federal judge heard arguments challenging the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.
The sparsely attended protest was organized by the National Organization for Marriage, the anti-gay hate group Family Research Council, and the Virginia Family Foundation.
Duggar, now Executive Director of Family Research Council Action, repeatedly criticized Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring for his refusal to “uphold the law” after determining that the state’s marriage ban violated the U.S. Constitution. Duggar also claimed that Christians are facing criminal charges for refusing to make wedding cakes for gay couples.
