Duggar Family Prays For Nation's "Wicked Ways" in Wake of Gay Marriage Ruling

by at .  Updated at .

As you've probably heard, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage nationally in a landmark decision that's being celebrated in all 50 states.

Countless celebrities have praised the 5-4 SCOTUS decision, which President Barack Obama went so far as to declare a "victory for America."

But not all public figures are similarly pleased with these developments.

Duggars' Gay Marriage Prayer

Just moments after the decision was announced, members of the famously conservative Duggar family made their feelings known with a Bible quote.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways," the message reads. 

"Then will I hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and heal their land.”

While the family did not address the court's ruling directly on their official Facebook page the timing and content of the above message is clear.

It leaves little doubt that this is the Duggars' way of admonishing the justices who voted for gay marriage and chastising the U.S. for its "wicked" ways.

Many of the commenters on the Duggars' post expressed support for the family and its views, proving the family still has a very loyal fan base.

Others, of course, accused the 19 Kids and Counting clan of hypocrisy for commenting on the sexual preferences, or anything "wicked" really.

Especially on the heels of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal, the Duggars' fundamentalist views seem even more controversial than ever.

They don't care about public opinion, though - notwithstanding their attempts to mitigate Josh's molestation disaster - and they likely never will.
