This should be a very happy time for the Roloff family.
Zach and Tori, after all, just welcomed their very first child into the world, helping to expand the brood made famous on TLC’s Little People, Big World.
But Jacob Roloff is here to spoil the celebration.
He’s here to once again talk openly about all the issues he has with his relatives, along with Christians in general.
Prepare to be third-degree burned by this hot take, readers!
“Christians as I have experienced them have assumed a real and damaging sense of superiority over all other belief systems,” wrote the 20-year old son of Amy and Matt Roloff on his new blog.
“They believe that their Mystic, Jesus of Nazareth, was the Supremely Gifted Mystic and that their book, The Bible, is Supreme in Knowledge and Law.”
And why is this a problem?
Because it leads to egotistical, selfish attitudes.
Continued Roloff in a rant that has gone viral:
“They have privately for so long deemed non-Christians as ‘needing help’ and diseased of the mind and spirit, condescendingly offering an empty platitude of the nature of ‘I’ll pray for you.’
“They don’t pray for you though, they pray for themselves, their spiritual security, and out of pity that you aren’t as fortunate as they to be ‘in the know.”
For these cited reasons, Roloff says he no longer considers himself a Christian.
This may not seem like a big deal to some, but it’s relevant because Jacob’s brother, Jeremy, and sister-in-law, Audrey, consider themselves to be dedicated, passionate, loyal Christians.
And they have used their own blog to make this viewpoint known, condemning such acts over the years as homosexuality, gender fluidity and pre-marital sex.
About a year ago, Roloff quit Little People, Big World in epic and memorable fashion.
He hadn’t appeared on the series for about 24 months at the time, but Jacob said he was besieged by people asking if he might make a return.
So he came out and gave them a simple answer: No. Never.
“For the sake of ‘the episode’ and ratings I’ve seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives,” Roloff wrote on Instagram, exposing the series as contrived.
He continued last July:
“And when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn’t stop laughing.
“Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are.”
In conclusion, he slammed his devout Christian family as being a bunch of fakers.
“The family that is filmed is not my family,” he wrote.
“They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself.”
Wow. Amazing, right?
We respect Jacob for speaking his mind and we understand that he doesn’t want to be a part of Little People, Big World.
But can someone out there give this guy a reality show?!? He’s awesome.
We’d totally watch it.
