'Little People Big World' Stars Take Surprising Anti-Gay Marriage Stance

Members of Little People Big World's Roloff family are under fire for anti-gay remarks. Jeremy Roloff's wife Audrey made the offending remarks on their marriage blog.

From Radar Online:

Christian Jeremy Roloff, 26, and his wife, Audrey, launched a blog called Beating 50 Percent, which aims to “inspire covenant marriages” and “encourage husbands and wives to give more than 50% to their spouse.”

According to Roloff family fan site Spirits Wander, Audrey, 24, recently posted a comment on an April 7 blog entry bashing readers who criticized the couple for only giving advice regarding heterosexual relationships.

“We are not claiming to be a resource for same-sex marriages,” she allegedly wrote in the comments. “It is not something we agree with.”

She went on to stress that same-sex couples can read the site if they wish.

That said, “We are for opposite-sex marriages that are striving to give more than average to their marriages,” she continued. “To live out the covenant of marriage every day, and to center their marriage around Christ. That being said, know that our content is not written to same-sex marriages, so to say that we don’t offer advice for that side is accurate.”

A month after it was reportedly written, Radar has found that Audrey’s anti-LGBT comment, in addition to all reader criticism, has been deleted.

What's your reaction?

They are completely justified. They have their own beliefs. They are not attacking anyone they are not the popular thinking. And this attack of this is part of Americas Trump issue. If anyone dare to speak like this we are homaphobic or racists or Nazi's. No .... we get to believe and speak as we believe. There is no hate here its simply a site for people of the same beliefs. Many many evil people Racists... KKK, many VERY IGNORANT EVIL PEOPLE use the name of Christianity to hide under they are evil horrible thinkers not these people ..... Seriously figure out the diffrence. AND IF WE COULD All discuss with out being attacked and called names .... this is whats wrong in America RIGHT NOW. We all can live together with diffrent beliefs.

Sad that they even have an opinion about this considering they couldn't keep their own marriage together.

All of you are hypocrites. They didn't say any "anit-gay" slurs, they just don't agree with gay marriage. AND THAT IS ALRIGHT!!! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. They aren't hating on gays. As a gay community all we want is acceptance and for our voice to be heard, yet we won't extend that courtesy to other communities. It's ok to have a difference of opinion. Two wrongs won't make this right. Quite frankly, we are the ones who a judging them and pressing our beliefs on them. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?

"they just don't agree with gay marriage. AND THAT IS ALRIGHT!!! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion."

Oh, so it's their opinion. Their opinion! It's totally off limits to respond because it's their... Opinion! Surely you understand that most of us don't think it's alright. And there's a difference between simply having an opinion and using your public platform to broadcast it.

This needs to be called out. Nobody here is a hypocrite for saying this is anti-gay rhetoric. This equal tolerance argument is invalid. No one is criticizing couples for being straight married. I'd let be anyone that wants to cater to a specific group especially if that's the area they are qualified, but instead of being respectful and leaving it at that, they stepped over the line and voiced opposition to gay folks. No law is being proposed here; just social movements against ignorance and discrimination. Sometimes, even some gay folks forget that we voice opposition not for ourselves, but for youth stuck in these families.

As long as people express a negative opinion about people based on race, gender, orientation... people should say something, so the awareness that a more authentic life awaits, doesn't disappear.

A bunch of inbred redneck trash is what they are. Recessive traits come out as a result of inbreeding.

Hitler and his Nazis had "little people" killed as impure and degenerates, just like homosexuals. Their undeserved, holier-than-thou arrogance won't save them from the same death sentence as us under Nazi-GOP Trump. So give it a rest, little assholes.

This is still a free country and anyone can hold to their Biblical beliefs.  Why isn't tolerance being extended to those who hold Biblical beliefs that differ from mainstream America?

Who are they to judge, they're not God. Specially marrying into the Roloff family. It would be like me saying all small people shouldn't marry .people with curly hair and blue eyes shouldn't marry and man who wear tighter jeans than their wives shouldn't marry. Sounds really stupid right!!!! For a smart girl you do stupid really good!!!! God bless you and I hope you don't have a gay son or lesbian for a daughter.

I think they're clear that because of their religious beliefs (Jeremy and Audrey, at least), they're not supportive of marriage equality. It's impossible to argue this issue with many people who call themselves Christian because they simply cannot accept the construct of homosexuality as anything other than sinful behavior that people choose to engage in. Nevertheless, some Christians do look beyond biblical doctrines and fully embrace their LGBTQ brothers and sisters. One would hope a family like the Roloffs, who have probably been the brunt of discrimination and misunderstanding all their lives, would have a deep compassion for for any group that has not been fully equal in our society.

I think it was the first season that one of Jeremy's good friends was hanging out with him on the sofa.  He had his legs thrown over Jeremy's. Reminded me of my younger days of discovering my love of my male friends. Needless to say I have not seen the friend on the show since. Anyone else remember seeing that?

Me too, I got that vibe that he's gay. Just look at his actions. Look at the way he presents himself.

100% agree.   Most homophobes are in fact Gay themselves and is why they spew hatred to cope with having to hide

All they did was say that the advise is for straight couples.  They didn't say they hate gays or gay marriage.  That's like boycotting your doctor because he won't fix your car.

Can you not read a complete sentence. 

"We are for opposite-sex marriages that are striving to give more than average to their marriages"

They are simply explaining what their blog is about.  There blog is about opposite sex marriages. They did nothing wrong and people need to chill out.

This isn't a  big surprise. It was never a focus of 'Little People Big World' but every now and then there are religious undertones. I don't think they're fundamentalist Christian. I would probably say evangelical.
