Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar to Parents: Remove All Worldly and Sensual Content!

by at .

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are at it again. And by "it" we mean trying to remain relevant and/or remind us why they were once relevant.

Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar Picture

Their popularity peaked just as the Josh Duggar molestation scandal broke and torpedoed it - along with their TLC reality show - for good.

The parents of 19 tried and failed to rebuild their image, one which was already controversial, yet in a sense pure, in the scandal's wake.

Whether it was their initial cover-up or attempts to re-frame Josh's molestation as "inappropriate touching," the public had just had enough.

That pretext is hard to ignore when reading the couple's "Note to Fathers" and "Note to Mothers" respectively, on the Duggars' official site.

"Start protecting your family," Jim Bob writes, "by removing books, magazines, television, or internet that have worldly or sensual content."

"Replace them with good things like wholesome music, biographies of great Christians, good old-fashioned family fun and games."

Words fail us at this point, and we doubt we're alone there.

Kids and "sensual content" don't go together. Everyone knows that.

Any parent is also wary, at least to a degree, of the dangers lurking online, and making sure their kids are old enough to handle them.

But "protect" them from "worldly" content? And biographies of Christians, as if any other person or historical event would be irrelevant?

"Sheltering" and "smothering" do not begin to describe this.

Michelle Duggar, meanwhile, talks mostly about laundry, furthering her view that man guides his wife and children in all matters, the end.

All in all, this just makes us long for the good ol' days.

Or at least the less terrible ones, when the biggest headlines they made involved the craziest things banned in the Duggar family.

The good ol' days. And you won't believe #7 and #8:
