Derick Dillard's Homophobia Sinks to New Low, Even For Him

by at .  Updated at .

Remember when Derick Dillard was fired by TLC for making bigoted comments on Twitter?

Well, apparently he doesn't!

Or at the very least he remains totally unconcerned with the effect his views might have on his career and public reputation.

Earlier this week, Derick took to social media to promote a speaking engagement by Ricky Chelette a controversial preacher who's a big proponent of the appalling practice of attempting to turn gay teens straight through "conversion therapy."

"Tomorrow night we will have an opportunity to hear from Rickey Chelette on same-sex attraction," Derick wrote.

"7:30 pm in the Arvest Building!"

Fans were quick to remind Derick of what a widely-reviled figure Chelette is.

One fan commented, "Isn't this the 'pray away the gay' guy???"

Derick typically isn't one to shy away from conflict, but he's been doing his best to dodge questions about Chelette's more revolting beliefs:

"Our church invites ALL to come. I’m open to all who would join our family," he replied to one fan.

Yes, the Duggars invite "ALL to come."

So stay tuned for next week's keynote address from Rupaul.

Here's the thing:

It's easy for Derick to be glib about his beliefs now, when he still has a bank account full of reality star money.

But soon enough, the Dillards will be 100% reliant on donations from fans in order to keep food on the table.

They already lost a lot of followers thanks to Derick's transphobic views, and now he's doubling down and alienating what few faithful fans he has left.

The Duggars have always espoused abhorrent views, but they're usually more social media savvy than this.

If he keeps this up, Derick may soon suffer a fate worse than being exiled like the Duggars eldest son, Josh.

That's right: he will soon be forced to get ... a real job!!!
