Duggar Family Drama: Ben Seewald Supports Liberal 'Black Lives Matter' Movement, Jim Bob Duggar Disapproves

The Duggar family is having quite the debate amongst themselves. They are arguably one of the most conservative families on television, promoting only what they believe to be "of God" and pure. The patriarch, Jim Bob Duggar, had a hand in selecting his daughters' husbands. He believed both were men of God, and has been very pleased up until recently. Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard and the two have been doing mission work since getting married. Jessa Duggar married Ben Seewald and the two have been working on raising a family.

Right now, tensions are running high in the Duggar family. According to the Hollywood Gossip, Jim Bob Duggar is upset that Ben Seewald is showing liberal tendencies. The Duggar children don't usually speak out on things that aren't pre-approved by their parents, but being as Jessa is an adult, she and Ben tend to voice their own opinions on social media and in public speaking engagements. This time, the controversy is over Seewald openly supporting the "Black Lives Matter" movement. He has shown his allegiance to this matter via social media on several occasions dating all the way back to 2014.

There has been some speculation that TLC has urged the older Duggar children to find their voice. Ben Seewald isn't afraid to stand up for what he believes is right, and that is that he believes the "Black Lives Matter" movement needs support. It will be interesting to see how far this goes, but Seewald seems serious in his support. It doesn't appear that this is a publicity stunt with posts being dated back to two years ago. Some fans are calling for the Seewalds to put their money where their mouths are, but so far, the backing has come from a distance.
