Is Jill Duggar following in her sister Jinger's footsteps? Since Jill and her husband Derick Dillard have moved back to the states permanently from their mission in Central America, it looks like they may be embracing a more liberal form of Christianity than Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar raised her with.

Just a reminder that the Duggar parents employed strict rules about everything for their kids growing up -- right down to how the girls should dress. The rule for the Duggar ladies growing up is that they must be covered from neck to knee, and they must wear long skirts or dress to indicate femininity.

Anyway, Derick and Jill made the announcement a few weeks ago that they were leaving their mission in El Salvador to pursue ministry closer to home in Arkansas. A few days ago, the Cross Church Springdale campus posted a picture of new attendees to its year-long ministry school program -- and the Dillards were there.

Which isn't necessarily big news, except that several of their classmates were not abiding by the strict Duggar dress code. Knees were seen, people. Knees

The program that Jill and Derick are in is described as a "one-year residential program," so they'll presumably be around these scantily clad others on a constant basis.

Not everyone thinks this is a bad thing though. According to the Hollywood Gossip, one commenter on the group's page wrote, "It will be good for Derek and Jill to be with people with a different brand of Christianity than the Duggars. See hems above the knee and it hasn't become a frenzied den of evil."

We're sure someone will be there to yell, "Nike!"
