Potential Duggar in-laws preach that gay people don't exist: 'There are no such things as homosexuals'

Last week, Joseph Duggar revealed he's courting Kendra Caldwell. It only took days for controversy to follow.

22-year-old Joseph and 18-year-old Kendra met through church, and the Duggars famously lean quite conservative. But even by far-right standards, Kendra's family's stance on homosexuality is a bit shocking.

Kendra's father, Paul Caldwell, is a pastor at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas. According to local reports, his parish is responsible for distributing controversial pamphlets door-to-door around the community.

"Does God love Homosexuals?" the handout reads. "This is a flawed question ... There are no such things as Homosexuals."

Some neighbors have taken to the media to voice their concerns, including resident Joanna McCusker, who told local outlets that the community is disturbed.

"I was just offended that they would be going door-to-door in this community with that information," she said. "I think most neighbors were pretty offended."

Added another, Joan Sirlin, "I've had religious pamphlets dropped off, but nothing like that. I don't think it's right to push your religious beliefs on people in neighborhoods like this or any neighborhood."

Paul Caldwell reportedly declined to respond in person, but responded to media via text with a decidedly mixed message.

"Our church loves the LGBT community, hence the reason we have decided since Spring 2014 to reach out to them. This is just another avenue we are trying," he wrote. "To them it is simply a reminder that God loves them, and if I were to truly love them then I must tell them the truth."

McCusker countered, "If you read their literature you'll see that they don't actually believe that there are such thing as gay people -- it's almost a science-fiction idea that they have."
