AceShowbiz - Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard just wanted to have a romantic trip for their five-year wedding anniversary, but it was interrupted as people slammed the "Counting On" star for one of her reading material. Known as a devoted Christian couple, fans are taking issues when they spotted a Kama Sutra book in their bedroom.
Jill took to her Instagram account to share a slew of photos of their many activiities on the special day. They included a photo of them having a nice meal in a restaurant, enjoying music and a photo of their sexy setup in the bedroom. It featured the Kama Sutra, a massage oil candle, a plate of Skittles, and a game scorecard that had “Bedroom Edition” written across the top.
In addition to slamming Jill for sharing her sex life so publicly, people in the comment section criticized the reality TV star for reading Kama Sutra. The book has roots in Hinduism and features chapters on same-sex and group sex relationships which are not acceptable with Bible teachings.
"No offense to y'all but I don’t want to know what goes on in between the sheets! Please keep it PG remember you were raised a Christian," a fan said. "Some things should be private and that's it. It's not about conservativity or fundamentalism (I’m a liberal atheist bisexual woman), but about common sense,” noted someone else. “Especially while preaching modesty by Bible standards at the same time that you’re telling the world what you do inside your bedroom (with a Hinduist book) to thousands and thousands of people," another added.
"Am surprised you would read the Kama Sutra, it is Hindu. You are inviting Satan into your marriage," another critic read. "Really shocked Jill. You've always been a massive role model for me. Right from when I was first converted. This has really bummed me out," one other voiced his/her disappointment.
In response to the backlash, Jill wrote back to defend her and husband's decision. "We are not recommending the Kama Sutra," she added in the caption of her post. "We believe marriage is ordained by God and husbands and wives should filter everything they read and hear together through the lense [sic] of the Bible and not practice anything unbiblical."
"The little book pictured is a modern, smaller, cleaner, edited version that doesn't focus on spiritual aspects, homosexual, or other extramarital relationships, and again, we don't take everything in there either as the truth," she clarified. "It is always good to be aware and careful of what we allow into our minds, hearts and marriages. We've not read the actual Kama Sutra and only promote biblical marriage (i.e. between a man and woman who are married). We just wanted to clarify since there has been a lot of discussion after this post."
