Serial procreators eldest rants against same sex marriage but claims to love gay people.

Josh Duggar, the eldest of Michelle and Joe Bob’s 19 Kids and Counting is the executive director of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobbying organization that has been labeled an anti-gay hate group.

Josh leads the fight against same sex marriage in Washington, D.C. and around the country.

But he doesn’t want to give off the wrong impression. During a recent appearance on the FRC’s Washington Watch radio show, the 26-year-old claimed to have “love and respect” for homosexuals.

“I have so many people that I know who are gay,” Josh insisted on December 15. “We have to go out there and show them the kind of love and respect that they deserve as human beings.”

That respect, however, doesn’t include giving gay men and women the right to exchange vows.

“We also have to stand up for our religious conscience rights,” the father of three argued. “And make sure certain people are protected…. We have to stand up and love and say, ‘We’re going to stand up for what’s right.’”

“We still love everyone as Christ commands, we still have compassion, we still have those kinds of feelings, but we also have our convictions. We have our beliefs.”
