The Duggars seriously need to disappear off the center stage and go do whatever it is they do away from the public eye. How do you forgive child molestation? I am all for second chances. The fact that this young man isn’t in prison is his second chance. He shouldn’t be held up as an uber-Christian.

The American public has been deceived.

I have never watched the show. I have heard about it and these people. There is something seriously wrong with these people and they do not represent any Christianity I want to be associated with.

    and they covered it up. They call themselves Christians… State Police Officer gave him a ‘stern talking to’. I wonder where those victims are today. And the non family victims are probably in the situation where the power of the family was a hindrance in them coming forward. In the reality show (is it reality?) Josh was a proponent of no sex or kissing before marriage – how could the parents promote all this crap on the show in 2009 knowing full well what had happened before (in 2002). Kudos to Oprah and Harpo for reporting it. And Huckabee is standing behind the family – so, covering this up is ok with him.

    1. I wonder if Huckabee would feel the same way about a priest molesting kids?

      I sure hope not.

      Josh must have been around 14 when these incidents happened. I find this very disturbing. Of course, knowing their judgement on kissing, I wonder what he really did do. Has anyone read what exactly happened?

    A lot of Republicans who want to be president got their picture taken with a child molester

    The Republican Party is currently firming up plans for their 2016 Presidential debates; attempting to figure out how to fit possibly 70 candidates onto one stage in a way that it doesn’t make them look like a gospel choir — only all white.

    For the Sept. 16, 2015 event, the Ronald Reagan (blessed be His name) Foundation and Library announced a new format, dividing that debate into two groups shirts and skins with the “Top 10″ in the polls in one flight and the garbage time players sitting on the bench, appearing later for the talent portion of the crazy train pageant. In order to make the tackling dummy C-list, a candidate must meet the minimum threshold of 1 percent in public polling, so Bobby Jindal can probably make other plans for that day. Maybe go see a movie, shop for shoes, stare wistfully at the gulf and wonder where it all went wrong.

    With so many candidates lining up, many voters may become confused by which white guy is the white guy that all the white guys are gonna vote for.

    With that in mind — and with a Twitter assist from former Family Research Council employee Josh Duggar of the sexing and baby-making Duggar breeding line– here are some photos of GOP candidates taken with Josh. There probably won’t be any new ones forthcoming from him despite the fact that he is expected to have a lot of time on his hands going forward because it turns out he was pretty forward with where he put his hands when with the young gals… including his sisters.

    Ew.

    During Josh’s brief public career shaming the pervs for Jesus, he was always willing to gladhand a politician who came to him hoping some of that Duggar magic would rub off. Now it seems it may not have “technically” been “magic.”

    Ew. Again.

    Remember to bookmark this for the future, when the debates roll around. You — and the Republicans in the photos — can thank me later for the reminders.

    Ew. That’s gross. I wonder why republicans like to hang out with child molesters.

  3. Obviously the kid needed some parental guidance. From what I have now read, some of the victims were his little sisters.

    I am fairly speechless that this problem would be covered up, especially by law endorcement. If these people were really being straight with their audience, they would have admitted to this dirty little secret from the git-go.

    Basically the “sin” is having 19 children. No one should have that many kids. You can’t take care of them all.

  4. Pat.Herve

    And a Judge ordered the file be expunged allegedly to protect the victims – disgusting. So, even the judicial system has gotten involved in the coverup.

  5. Pat.Herve

    Huckabee was also very vocal about getting Michael Drummond (a serial rapist) out of prison – once sprung, Drumond want on to rape and kill again.

    So, is it – as long as you express your Christian’ness, you are forgiven and can do what you want??

    1. Or you can cover it up like the Duggar kid and still be forgiven….in the world of Huckabee. I dont care if people are forgiven IF and ONLY IF there is full disclosure.

    How can it be that I’ve never heard of this TV show?
    Heard about the family a few times but didn’t know they were on TV.
    In this case it can truly be said that ignorance is bliss.

    How would Cuccinelli have known? At least the Cooch didn’t visit island pedophilia paradises with Jeffrey Epstein.

    1. Maybe we should just beware of people who are this bat-sh!t crazy. I wouldn’t vote for anyone who would associate themselves with these kind of people. They want lower taxes and 19 kids? 19 kids should definitely put you in the tax free bracket.

      I was sickened listening to these people. I think my family values trump theirs each and every time. My children weren’t diddling each other when they were teenagers (or ever). They did get in a few major fights a time or two though. They also kissed others before marriage and I didn’t have 19 children. Obviously, they couldn’t take care of them all. The “buddy system” is no replacement for parenting.

    And yet the biggest sexual skank in contemporary presidential history is one of your pet icons? Let dem eyeballs roll……………..

    1. I think there were probably a few others in the presidential ranks. (sexual predators if that is what we are calling men who have had women on the side either during their presidency or before)

    Hanging out with pedophiles is sickening and disgusting.

    The kid was only 14 and made some mistakes. He was found out and faced the music. He was forgiven by those around him, and he turned himself around. He seems to have led a good life since then as a son, a husband, a father and a person of integrity. This is sometimes called “Amazing Grace,” as written long ago by an ex-slaver named John Newton, who turned his own life around and became a minister of the Faith. I think that all of us should be gracious and charitable enough to accept this, whether we agree from a religious message standpoint or not.

    You undoubtedly agree then about Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein.

    1. This is the first time ever I have heard Bill Clinton called a pedofile. I have no idea who Jeffery Epstein is.

      If my sources are even remotely correct, Duggar’s victims were his sisters. He is the oldest sibling, making him more of a predator than if he were younger.

      I see nothing forgivable about preying on your younger sisters and then setting yourself up to the world as Mr. Wunderful. (and making a lot of money off your piety) I just think it was deceptive and hypocritical.

    @Wolve
    wolve – have a ‘stern talking to’ from a state police officer – is not facing the music. Have the files permanently deleted (which is very very rarely, if ever, done) is not facing the music. Are we sure he has turned his life around?

    It is disgusting that they portray one image, yet live a different image. They did a whole season on the wedding and how they would not kiss till married. Were the victims provided therapy?

  13. Cargosquid

    So….. what is it that this guy, at 14, was supposed to have done? Was he molesting children or was he fooling around with fellow teens? I’ve not seen a clear description of what his “crime” was supposed to be.

    1. From what i have been able to gather, he was molesting his little sisters and perhaps other little girls. Who knows.

    What a win for gay parents. The response to the FRC and other opponents of gay marriage who claim that gays are harming children is to follow Josh’s parents lead…ignore it and if gay parents get called out about not having both a mother and a father for their kids they can simply claim that they asked forgiveness from God and their child and by Josh rules they are redeemed by all right-thinking Christians. The days of judging gays families is over because the “perfect” conservative family model for family structure turns out to be dysfunctional and to produce pedophiles. God works in mysterious ways to chastise gay bashing by the religious right.

    OH, this is great – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3091071/PICTURED-State-trooper-let-Josh-Duggar-wake-alleged-child-molestation-charges-later-went-prison-child-pornography-charges.html

    the police officer that gave Josh a ‘stern talking to’, without ever filing a proper report – well, he is serving his second stint in prison for ….., wait for it…… – child porn charges.

    DISGUSTING.

    1. This thing I really unraveling to be something really ugly.

      I have never followed the Duggars because they digusted me, long before this happened.

    A few weeks ago there was an attempted break-in in our neighborhood. I checked the PWC police website to get the deets. I noticed a link to the sex offender registry and figured I’d check out our neighborhood. No sex offenders in our neighborhood. But I saw someone I know.

    He’s a recovering alcoholic who admittedly has a checkered past. For the last five years he’s been hanging around a wonderful woman who is admired by everyone. He’s given up drinking. He’s going to church. He just got married to the woman last summer. He’s a nice guy. He works hard for peanuts. I don’t know what he did. I don’t want to know. Whatever he did, it’s in his past. I don’t need to consider in 2015 something that happened in the 90s.

    But at the same time, there is something extremely perverse about being turned on by children to the extent that you will take action that harms a child. If someone has something in their being that compels them to do something to hurt a child, then you know, I mean, forget about it, that person needs to be kept away from children or be under strict supervision. If I were this guy’s wife, then I’d be a little concerned.
