Just seven days after Derick went on line and decided to take some very aggressive action against, “Jazz Jennings,” the star of “I Am Jazz” stating that she is not a transgender – which was posted in one very controversial tweet, Jill (Duggar) Dillard’s spouse has yet to say “I am sorry” by posting an apology for the public to see. Apparently, Derick doesn’t believe that he should apologize and remains faithful to the very strict beliefs that his Christianity has taught him – even though many Duggar fans and followers have criticized him harshly regarding his post via his social media site.
Let’s take a quick look at the timeline of Derick’s “Anti-Trans” social media fiasco
On Thursday, the 3rd of this month, Derick really blasted the Duggar’s reality TV network, “TLC” along with “I Am Jazz” for creating a unique name for the TV show, and basically saying it’s more of a reality series, while also stating that, in his eyes, a person who is a transgender is actually some type of “myth.” What we also find odd, is the fact that Derick’s missionary agrees with him and is unwilling to state that Jazz Jennings is none other than a 16 year old girl – also demanding that they use the true and actual pronoun when Derick replies to the tweets on his social media site.
Users of the internet did not hesitate to reply and defend the very important “LGBT” circle of friends who chose to blast Dillard’s social media tweet by saying that it was very misleading and full of hate. Jennings took it upon herself to send out another tweet, even though the hatred and controversy was still hot on the heels of those who follow Derick on his Twitter site, by stating that she continues to be bullied by those who criticize her in cyberspace, however, no matter what, Jazz is more determined than ever to continue sharing her personal story to the world. Just one day after Dillard’s twitter post was seen, the Duggar’s reality TV show network, “TLC” decided it was time to release their own true and factual statement, condemning Dillard’s personal opinion. TLC is also the same network which produces not only the Duggar’s reality TV show, “Counting On” – which Dillard also stars in on a somewhat regular basis – as well as Jazz Jennings’ “I Am Jazz” TV show.
“It is important for us to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard’s personal statement does not represent the views of TLC.”
Derick’s New Verse from the Bible which he Tweeted, safeguarding his own attitude
Even though many fans and followers have criticized the tweet, Derick doesn’t seem to care and absolutely refuses to remove that insidious tweet that has caused so much backlash. In his own defense, Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, decided to tweet a multitude of verses from the Bible, which, of course was his way of defending himself from the anti-gay establishment, as well as his own beliefs for the anti-transgender status that has plagued him on social media.
The most recent tweet, which Derick posted on the 9th of this month, was his personal view regarding the verse from “Bible’s Hebrews 13.” As we all know, Dillard is also a reality star on his in-laws reality show “Counting On” and his throwback regarding how “truth is relative these days,” also stating, however, that the word of God is and will always be the truth, now and forever, no matter what anyone says.
Derick’s main focus is regarding verse 8 in one particular chapter of the Bible, in which it says “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” which comes from (the brand new world wide Version). And yet, we do know that another verse, which arrived prior to the previous one, also tries to prevent those who are Christian from the act of infidelity, which also includes the wickedness of sexual activity with anyone other than one’s spouse.
But, many who criticized and posted crude remarks regarding Derick’s ridiculous tweet have also indicated that he appears to have completely omitted the very first Bible verse from the passage itself. What we do find rather intriguing, is that Hebrews 13 actually began by strongly encouraging those who follow him to actually “love one another.”
“Stop living in your bubble of hatred. The teachings you are saying are not what our God wants. He is loving and kind,” posted by one of Derick’s fans. And yet, there were those who tried their best to plead with Derick to stop posting about this issue and cool it for a while – meaning stay off of Twitter.
In the meantime, many of the family members from the Duggar clan, have refrained from replying or posting any comments regarding Derick’s most recent Twitter post which has caused so much trouble. Jill (Duggar) Dillard, crazy Derick’s spouse has chosen not to make any comments by trying to defend her hubby, most likely because of all the nasty and very hateful replies that he has been receiving from all members who live in the same community as the LGBT folks reside in. Look for the brand new season of “Counting On” which is scheduled to air next month – for another exciting season on the reality TV network, TLC.
Yikes! What is Derick Dillard trying to do?! Let’s hope that he finally decides to remove and delete that nasty tweet asap.
