An Important Comment
This was submitted as a comment under Open Discussion. I decided to move it to the front page to make sure everyone was able to see it.

I wrote a religious post today for GWoP. It is there under the heading of "Before You Dig Deep..." (The title was given to the post by the administrators, but everything else I wrote.)
I realise that a lot of people who post over at GWoP seem more interested in attacking the Gosselins' appearance, mannerisms and parenting methods. There are several of us, though, who have openly stated that we are not in favour of the various slams and ARE in it purely for advocating for the children.
My purpose in following postings over there is twofold: I DO wish that some attention would be brought to bear on the children's lifestyle while filming--because I think they are overworked.
I am also interested in an honest picture of the Gosselins' financial status, as I am a Christian and wonder if it is appropriate for them to continue to solicit donations from the church under the pretense of financial need.
I do not hate the Gosselins. I do not bear them ill will AT ALL. I truly love them as a sister in Christ and hope the best for them.
I invite all of you to read the post I wrote today and be open with me regarding any criticisms you may have about the content.
It is my hope that you here will realise that the GWoP community is as large and varied as any other internet forum and the aims of the group are not always the shared aims of the individuals who participate there.
I appreciate that this forum exists to bring some balance to the discussion, and I would hope that balance would extend toward fairmindedness when evaluating the participants of the GWoP threads.
