If you have been following the mainstream news recently, then you would have heard of the disgusting Turpin parents that have been arrested for torturing their 13 children. The torture that these children allegedly received was really disturbing as it included them being starved and being shackled to a bed. The Turpin children ranged from the ages of 2 to 29 years old, and they were saved when the 17-year-old girl from the family got free and alerted the authorities. Well, to make matters even more creepy some Duggar fans have gone to do some research online and have found out that there is a strange connection between the Turpin family and the Duggar family.

What is the connection between the Turpin family and the Duggar family?

With the authorities doing their research on this family’s history they have found out some things about them that are eerily similar to the Duggar family. For example, not only did the Turpin family also home-school their children but they also are a part of the same religious sect as the Duggar family, which is the Quiverfull movement.

This religion is a sect of Christianity that strongly values a patriarchal, conservative culture. As you can tell from watching the Duggar family online and on their TLC Reality Television Series “Counting On,” it is one hundred percent safe to say that their religious views are just a bit controversial.

For example, they believe that because of their religion a woman should not be able to wear pants and that they should always be willing to fulfill their husband’s needs no matter what. However, it is worth mentioning that Jinger can be seen wearing skinny jeans even though it is against the family's values.The bigger issue with many feminists is that the Duggars believe that the wife should obey her husband.

Some believe that the Duggars take that rule a bit too far, especially when it comes to making rules for the women and enforcing dress codes.

What other controversial things have the Duggar family been up to?

Another controversial thing that this family has got up to would be when Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard decided to attack "I Am Jazz" star Jazz Jennings online for being transgender.

The cyberbullying attempt did not go unnoticed by TLC, and they decided to kick Dillard off the family’s television series “Counting On.”

TLC removed Derick from the show and stated that their views as a network don’t align with Dillard’s. If you want to keep up with this very conservative family, you can follow them on their TLC family reality television series “Counting On” and you can also follow them on their social media accounts as well.
