'19 Kids and Counting' Family

BLOWING UP $100 Bills

At The Lincoln Memorial

8/4/2011 12:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0803-money-washinton-water-exThe adorable religious zealots on "19 Kids and Counting" were right on the money yesterday in D.C. -- when the family stormed the Lincoln Memorial to fight spiritual bankruptcy ... with GIANT $100 bills.

Patriarch Jim Bob Duggar tells TMZ, he and his family felt like the country could use a pep talk during these hard financial times ... so they handed out over-sized fake Benjamins, inscribed with uplifting spiritual messages.

Jim Bob -- who was vacationing in the capital with his family -- adds, "Our hope in passing them out today was to encourage people to reflect on the things that are most important and to re-evaluate their relationship with God."

Given the memorial backdrop ... maybe $5 bills would have been more appropriate?

I've watched the Duggars since they began their TV show and they've been CONSISTENTLY GOOD PEOPLE. Even before they appeared on TV, they were already financially-adequate with commercial properties and other assets that they own, living simply, buying from thrift shops even, and volunteering & helping the less fortunate (not too many people are as unselfish as the Duggars).
The critics of the Duggars probably enjoy shows depicting the undisciplined, foul-mouthed, violent and illegal-dealing people - shows that influence the youth especially the vulnerable ones who come from ill-bred, unintelligent and unethical parents, and so crimes are on the rise. Aren't they scared that violent, immoral shows breed more criminals? Isn't it so scary nowadays to be out alone at night because of criminally-minded people?
LET'S GIVE PLEASANT, ETHICAL SHOWS LIKE THE DUGGARS A CHANCE - SHOWS LIKE THESE ARE SO VERY RARE compared to the numerous shows that influence crime and violence. We all need good role models like the Duggar family.
