On Wednesday, we told you about Audrey Roloff, a woman prominently featured on TLC’s reality show Little People, Big World.
In that editorial, we referred to Audrey as “fervidly antigay” due to a blog post she’d written on Spirits Wander, a Roloff family-affiliated site.
Discussing her recently launched blog 50 Percent, which hopes to “encourage husbands and wives to give more than 50% to the spouse” and “inspire covenant marriages,” she wrote, “We are not claiming to be a resource for same-sex marriages. It’s not something we agree with.”
We are for opposite-sex marriages that are striving to give more than average to their marriages. To live out the covenant of marriage every day, and to center their marriage around Christ. That being said, know that our content is not written to same-sex marriages, so to say that we don’t offer advice for that side is accurate.”
Some of our readers weren’t altogether pleased with us labeling Audrey as “antigay” simply because she’s against same-sex marriage.
“I think it’s rather overboard to label these kids as hateful,” said reader Grace Fuller.
They are only ‘anti-gay’ because they are not specifically ‘pro-gay.’ They have every right to believe that the only marriages they want to support are heterosexual, and meant for a higher purpose spiritually.”
We all have the right to disagree, but calling them names and attacking them is really petty. I won’t be watching their show or donating to anything they are affiliated with. Doesn’t make me ‘anti-straight.'”
Jen, another reader, was similarly nonplussed:
