Michelle Duggar: The Internet is Evil and Will Steal Your Soul!

by at .

Michelle Duggar believes the Internet and the smartphones that proliferate it are basically evil and looking to steal your soul at their earliest convenience.

This opinion isn't particularly surprising, nor is it the most controversial view held by the 19 Kids and Counting matriarch. But still, let her elaborate ...

Michelle Duggar on 19 Kids

Michelle and her husband, Jim Bob Duggar, and their adult kids are far from technological dinosaurs. They blog and are very active on social media.

Josh, Jill and Jessa Duggar and their spouses are allowed to post on Instagram, and they do so frequently and with no restrictions from mom and dad.

The unmarried ones are a different story, however.

Their girls might even have cell phones, but they limit their sons' Internet use in particular because there are too many "temptations" online these days.

"Young men would have more of a struggle seeing bad stuff," Michelle revealed in an interview with Covenant Eyes, and there's no denying that's true.

Even if you're not talking full-on porn or nudity, images of Kylie Jenner's bikini body are everywhere these days, just yearning to be drooled over.

Seriously, that girl is simply relentless.

So how does the Duggar family, which doesn't even allow kids on the beach or wear clothes that are at all revealing for similar reasons, handle this?

"What we've done with the smartphones," Michelle says, is "we've actually locked out Safari and any Internet search at all, and then we've just had basic apps."

"We have emails and just the basic things on the phones for the guys," however, "even on the maps and things there are some ways to see some bad things.

That, she laments, has been "a struggle."

Somewhere, Kylie Jenner is thinking up a way to send you push notifications of where her bikini body has recently been seen when you fire up Google Maps.

All kidding aside, the Duggars unabashedly stand for what they feel is right, and seem to raise a group of young people who share in their steadfast beliefs.

This includes those Duggar family dating rules that border on the insane to most people, but once a couple is married, the reins are loosened considerably.

If you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, you recall that Jim Bob and Michelle recently explained to daughter Jessa what a woman wants and what a man wants.

"Both of you'll like the physical relationship, but [for] the guy [it] will be kind of like the main focus," patriarch Jim Bob told her and then-fiance Ben Seewald.

"But for a woman, communicating is the most important thing, and so taking time each day to communicate, that will just mean the world to her."

Truer words have never been spoken.
