Duggar Daddy-In-Law: Anyone Would Touch Kids If They Could Get Away With It

Not only does Josh Duggar belong to the perfect family for enabling a child molester, apparently his sister married into one too. In a recap of the happenings of the past week in Duggar-land, Jessa Duggars father-in-law Michael Seewald added to the excuses made by Christians as to why a sinner sins and should be forgiven.

Seewald doesnt believe that raising a child in the real world with things like sexual education and healthy teenage relationships would have helped the situation in the Duggars bizarre home:

Fan the flames of youthful lust and you end up with what we have: unprecedented numbers of unwed mothers, millions of abortions, rampant STDs, and the unraveling of the fabric of our whole society. Josh didnt sin because he was repressed, he sinned because like all of us he is a sinner.

Sorry, bud. Josh Duggar sinned because Josh Duggar thought, at 14 years old, that fondling young girls was OK. Maybe its his parents fault for not allowing him to experience life like a human being, maybe its his churchs fault for demonizing all things sex. The truth is, there are millions and millions of devout Christians who refuse to sign the sex-ed permission slip and teach abstinence, and their kids dont do the things Duggar did.


The bottom line is, Josh Duggar did what Josh Duggar did because child molesters arent wired right.

While it is commendable that Seewald decided to mention that there are in fact victims, he then goes on to downplay their pain by calling what happened human nature.

This disturbing end to a paragraph filled with parables shows just how far the Christian right will go to defend the actions of a diddler:

Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh. We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggars home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling.

We should absolutely be shocked that this happened…in ANY home.

Michael Seewald in this blog of his comes very close to condemning Josh Duggar. Just when you think the indictment is coming comes yet another excuse, another bible passage, and a weak call for those affected by sexual abuse to speak out.

Unless youre the Duggars. Then you should be happy that you did the Godly thing and sought counseling and asked God for forgiveness.

    This is unfortunately part and parcel of most stripes of Christianity. A fear of eternal damnation is the only reason THEY bother being a good person, so whats true for them has got to be true for everyone else. Its disgusting.


    • cndrs12345

      So not true! Many Christians choose to lead a good life because they are basically good people. Most of the Christians I know (myself included) try to do whats right because it makes us feel good, I dont mean that we never sin, I just mean that I feel better about myself when I do things for others. It s very narrow mind to classify an entire group based on the actions of a few.


      • Batman in Arkham

        I classify an entire group based on whats written in the Bible. You can be either a good Christian or a good person. Not both.


        • ajani

          lol ok God thank you.


      • IJS

        Another example of the typical professing Christian who doesnt read the Bible. So, was Jesus lying when He told the rich young ruler in Mark 10:18 that there is no one good but God alone? What about Romans 3:10-11, which says, There is none righteous, no, not one. There is no one truly wise; no one seeks God? Any good that Christians do is not because they are basically good people it is because of Gods grace.


        • New Deal

          There is no god.


          • terry513

            your opinion.

            Poor soul.have no deal.

          Well, gods doing a crappy job with his people. Really crappy, historically. Should send a flood on the christians and start again.


      • Michael Aronson

        Do they believe morality comes from god/religion/the bible, or from themselves? If the latter, what use do they have for a religion anyway?


      • Lynda Prado

        Just ignore these people that tell you that you are bad for being a christian. Labeling a group of people as bad for being christian is no better than labeling them as bad because of their race. I bet that none of these so called Good people would walk up and say the same thing to someone because of their race and say it to their face. They are just trolls out looking to stir up trouble. They need to understand that there is good and bad in every group of people.


        • Keith Cumbie

          Race is not chosen. christian hate is.


          • ajani

            Are you talking about the Duggar Christian Cult?


      • kkb

        You know where your argument fails? It fails on your Actions of A Few, mischaracterization. You must be more familiar with your bible than you are of history and even of news reports. Or you just arent allowed to know.

        I know agnostics, and atheists who do the same things for the same reasons.


      • kslgnc

        But cant you lead a good life, do things that are right and that make you feel like a good person without being led by a cult of hypocritical groups who believe every word of the Bible is the truth. Youre only following the words of men 2000 years ago….not Gods. We all make our own paths…no reason why any of us cannot be Christian-like without going to church on Sunday or praying about everything we do. Its a life choice….you can choose to be good….or choose to be bad. It has nothing to do with religion, being a Christian or following the bible.


  • 2Smart2bGOP

    I have never, EVER had any desire to mess sexually with children, opportunity or consequences notwithstanding. Its staggering to me how far these idiots will reach to defend the indefensible.


    • Batman in Arkham

      No kidding. The thought of being sexually active with anyone even ten years younger than me gives me the creeps, and that person would still be a legal adult.


  • LesterBallard

    And all you have to do is say youre repented and been forgiven. And I wonder how much the victims were pressured into forgiving him; and keeping quiet?


    • Jackie Stevens

      My thought is that asking for and receiving forgiveness was probably something that was encouraged on a fairly regular basis. Not just the big, nasty things like this but also little everyday hurts. So forgiving would have been a normal thing to do when someone says Im sorry.

      The problem ( in my mind) would be that the girls were so young that they could not possibly understand the long term consequences of their brothers actions or have any idea what it was they were actually forgiving.

      Obviously to us there is a huge difference between sexual assault and say…shoving your brother/sister or name calling. But all a little kid is going to understand is that brother hurt them…they wont see or understand the mile wide difference between them. They could not have understood that their brothers behavior could leave scars that last a lifetime. That it could effect their lives, marriages and even their childrens lives down the road.


    • kkb

      Why do you think the MAFIA loves being christianist so much? Murder and mayhem all week, Sunday confession, Monday comes and youre pure as the driven snow to begin again. What a crazy concept. Just as crazy as getting your reward after you are dead. Who in the world could ever fall for THAT SCAM? Oh, yeah. Millions of brain washed people.


      • Michael Aronson

        The Mafia loves being christianist [sic] so much because the mafia is Italian, and Christianity is linked to traditional Italian values.


        • kkb

          Thats just SO PAT…isnt it. Think outside of the box once in awhile.


  • nwbennu

  • Marilyn Boeldt

    I grew up in a fundamentalist home where any sin could be forgiven unless it had to do with s but apparently that only applies to females.


  • doctor_robot

    why do people keep saying he was 14? in 2006 he was 18. this wasnt reported 4 years later, right?


    • tracy two crows

      Because it actually started when he was 14.They knew about it and did nothing for years till they finally got cornered.


      • Judith_Priest

        but they have their Greek Chorus of Suddenly child molestation is No Big Deal, as long as it happens in a Christian home, and everybody wanders around playing Repentance Theater until the Heat is off.

        While the KKKristian KKKlub here on the Internet glosses it all over and makes it *just fine* cause theyre all Christian-y and Forgiven.

        So this little weasel can basically keep this up for the rest of his life,
        and his family, his community, and the icky freaks currently posing as Christians give him a *pass* on it …

    He simply admitted his own hidden intentions, and he follows a religious order that allows him to act upon them.


  • Josh Weinstein

    Oh my God! Just that last quote should be enough to have ALL OF THESE PEOPLE investigated for child molestation! He REALLY believes that any of us would molest children if given the chance??? I dont see what a child has that an adult would WANT, sexually speaking! Maybe everyone in HIS CIRCLES would molest children if given the chance, but the vast majority of us would NEVER EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

    What sick, perverted scum these people are! They need some SERIOUS mental help!


    • Suzanne Wilson

      It definitely explains why his wife had no problem marrying him and having children although she was aware of all of this…sounds like child abuse, molestation and incest was acceptable in her homestead :(:(


      • cndrs12345

        It was not Joshs father in law that said this. It was not even what he saidhe said more people would sin if they thought they could get away with it. Did you even read the article?


        • http://user.drunkduck.com/dumok dumok

          Is that really any better? Josh DID get away with it with his parents and his congregation covering up for him. The problem HERE is that as Christians you are supposed to live your lives BEYOND reproach, which doesnt mean to cover up such a horrific crim, you are supposed to report it to the cops.


          • cndrs12345

            I totally agree with youwhat he did was beyond wrong. The point I was trying to make is that the headline did NOT match the story. So many people are willing to judge based on a headlineand the journalists play to this. This was NOT Joshs father in law and he did NOT say that most people want to touch kids inappropriately. Did you read the comments? So many people commented without having even read the article. Just makes me angry when I see these inflammatory stories.


          • terry513

            maybe you need to read it again too.


          • cndrs12345

            Ive read it several times. Ok, what am I missing? Joshs SISTERS FATHER IN LAW not Joshs father in lawsaid more people would sin if there were no consequences. Where does he say that more people would touch children inappropriately?


        • Suzanne Wilson

          I read the article…more than one. Theyre sick and if you feel the need to defend people who defend people who hurt children…well, Ill just leave it at that.


          • cndrs12345

            I am in no way defending what Josh did or what his SISTERS FATHER IN LAW said. I am merely saying that people need to read the articles and not let the journalists do their thinking for themdont be a sheeple!


    • cndrs12345

      Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh. We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggars home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling. Where does he mention molesting a child? What am I missing here? To me it sounds like he is merely talking about sin in general.


  • Donnetta Williams

    OMG these people are insane! They keep making excuses to defend why instead of acknowledging that there is something mentally unstable with this guy. Still running away from the real issue this is a criminal act that displays a serious problem that Im sure all of them are dealing with. SAD


    • susanmcnichol

      I agree with ou Donnetta. How can people read the articles and then say that it has been dealt with? The only way that it was dealt with is in covering it up until the statute of limitation was past. SAD is right.


      • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

        You know, I cant help wondering what the Duggars would have done if Joshie was crawling into his brothers beds & fondling them?????????


  • Keyser Soze

    If you choose to sin youre a bad person. Personally, i choose not to. Its easy if you just life your life right.


  • nehpets123154

    The whole family appears to be perverted,mentally,physically and spiritually !!!!!!!!!!


  • Susan Fleming

    So this man says the only reason every man doesnt molest little girls is because they fear the consequences? How about 1)RESPECT for other human beings, 2) Duty to protect and defend your family, 3) Its perverted to even think about it… One only wonders what goes on in HIS home.


    • Daniel Woodworth

      Not what he said. He said more people would sin if they thought they could get away with it, and hes right.

      For example, you thought you could get away with lying about what he said, so you did that. I hope you see the error of your ways.


      • Michael Aronson

        He said more people would sin if they thought they could get away with it, and hes right.

        Get away from what? Sin doesnt come with consequences, crimes do.


        • Daniel Woodworth

          Many sins are crimes; those that arent usually still come with strongly negative societal repercussions.

          I cant be too upset with you for failing to understand the point he was making, but suffice it to say that that is a very common theme in Christianity.


          • Michael Aronson

            So what are the repercussions for the sins of wearing wool and eating shellfish?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Much as I respect your long minutes of studying chain emails about the Bible, it seems youve missed the entire point of Christianity.

            Are you really interested in hearing why Christians dont observe the ceremonial law? If so, Id be glad to explain it, but I have a hard time believing no one has before.


          • Michael Aronson

            I wonder if Jesus would be so condescending. Probably. He did slt-shame a woman before she begged him for forgiveness.

            Anyway, are you saying you dont follow certain parts of the bible? Thats very convenient for you.

            So its not a sin for women to talk in church?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Are you actually interested in an explanation, or are you just talking to hear yourself talk?


          • Michael Aronson

            I wonder if Jesus would treat people who he thought didnt understand his teachings with so much intolerance and contempt.

            Is that a sin too?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Well, there was the incident with the whip, so it seems He could be rather intolerant of those who were willfully ignorant.

            If thats what you are and given what youve said so far, I find it most likely nothing I could say would ever change your mind. If you arent, Id be glad to explain. Tell me whether youre genuinely interested in an explanation, and we can move forward.


          • Michael Aronson

            None of my questions were asked rhetorically or in jest. The fact you assumed they were, in addition to your continued condescension, reflect only on yourself. But I guess your deity will forgive you for that.

            So hit me.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            I think youll find that crushing ignorance usually provokes a response that you might view as condescending. Thats simply a fact of life; its difficult to respond to ignorance in a way that does not make it clear that it was ignorance. I admit that I may well struggle in that regard more than most.

            I do not use the term ignorance insultingly, either: I cant fault you if no one has explained it. The fact remains, though, that this explanation has been constant in Christianity since Christianity began. It is a large part of the thrust of the Gospels, and it would be almost impossible to avoid it in any mainline Christian denomination.

            The Old Testament records the history of the Law, and mans failure to meet its requirements. The purpose of the Law was never to be an end in itself, but rather to point to Christ, who is the fulfillment of the Law. Once fulfilled, it is no longer binding, but the truths it reveals about God are still true. This concept has been expressed by saying that each part of the Law had a general principle and specific application. The later was abrogated at Christs death; the former was not.

            The universal principle of the aspects of the law that you mentioned what would be called the Ceremonial Law is that the Israelites were to be separate. The specific application no longer stands, and it is no longer necessary to abide by the particulars to fulfill the universal principle.

            Christians will still endeavor to please God, but that doesnt require strict adherence to the specific application given to the Old Testament Israelites. Much of Pauls writing, for example, concerns abandoning the practice of circumcision, which was required by the Old Testament, because it was a sign of the Law, not of Grace. The fulfillment of the Law is not an excuse to do anything they please, but it does mean that serving God does not look the same as it would under the Law.

            As you can see, thats rather lengthy, and perhaps you understand why I didnt care to type it up until I knew you were actually going to listen to it.


          • Michael Aronson

            I think youll find that crushing ignorance usually provokes a response that you might view as condescending.

            The fact that you find my alleged misunderstanding of your beliefs crushing is, once again, only a reflection upon you. Why does it hurt you so much that others dont understand what you think they should understand?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            It doesnt hurt me at all. Im merely stating a fact: your ignorance, if those were genuine questions, is very far-reaching. Again, I cant blame you for that if you havent been taught I cant ask for omniscience but Im not going to pretend its anything other than what it is.


          • Michael Aronson

            Its funny, because my alleged ignorance of Daniel Woodworths personal beliefs have never caused me any inconvenience in my life, yet you keep complaining about it over and over. Once again, reflection. On you. It is.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Well, your ignorance hadnt caused you any trouble, until you replied to a comment using an argument that was fallacious, but didnt realize it because you didnt understand enough to know why.

            I also notice that, despite your professed desire to understand, youve continued the meta-argument, instead of engaging on the issues. If thats a common practice for you, it may explain how you were able to remain ignorant for so long.


          • Michael Aronson

            Well, your ignorance hadnt caused you any trouble, until you replied to a comment using an argument that was fallacious, but didnt realize it because you didnt understand enough to know why.

            In which case, it still hasnt caused me any trouble. Yet you cant stop complaining about it. Amusing!


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Im not. I stated it, and Ive been willing to move on to more meaningful topics for some time. If youd care to join me?


          • Michael Aronson

            I wonder whos more ignorant, the alleged holder of the ignorance, or the person who repeatedly insists that the other is ignorant, accomplishing absolutely nothing in the process.

            Hmm . . .


          • Daniel Woodworth

            You see, this is what I was afraid of when I saw your questions. I can give an answer, but if you have no intention of listening, its rather pointless.

            Im curious: were your questions ever ingenuous? I have no qualms about talking to walls, but as an educator, your original motive does have some intellectual interest.


          • Michael Aronson

            You see, this is what I was afraid of when I saw your questions.

            It doesnt hurt me at all.

            Certainly, fear is a type of pain. You poor thing.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Idiom is a funny thing, my friend.

            Regardless, this discussion is going nowhere. I trust that next time you want to use those particular objections to Christianity, you will recall this discussion. If not, you can simply consult any Christian teacher since the time of Christ, and you will likely hear almost exactly the same answer. They have been answered, and using them does, in fact, display a crushing ignorance of what Christianity is if I were that ignorant on any topic, I would want to be corrected, and I hope you share the sentiment.

            Also, regardless of whether or not you were actually ignorant of the crux of Christianity, the practice of obfuscating in order to avoid engaging on the issues can only leave you ignorant in the long run. Perhaps you feel you can effectively switch between thinking critically and obfuscating with the intent to mock. If so, I would caution you against that: critical thinking is a habit, not just a practice, and biases are not so easy to control that you can readily bring them under control after giving them free rein.


          • Michael Aronson

            I trust that next time you want to use those particular objections to Christianity, you will recall this discussion.

            Oh yes, it has been so memorable, especially the part where you explained how sins actually exist and what they entail . . . oh wait, you were just griping about what I didnt know over and over and over and over.


          • Michael Aronson

            You clearly dont know anything about my beliefs, and youre probably the type who isnt willing to learn.

            Really, what were you hoping to accomplish with this approach? Have you managed to convince anyone of anything?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Also, I cant help that notice that youve been driving the discussion towards your ignorance, after I mentioned it in passing. Again, you seem unwilling to think critically (which, granted, I cant blame you for that much, given the forum), but still want to continue the discussion.


          • Lisa Irwin

            Pompous, much?


      • Susan Fleming

        Daniel, Daniel, Daniel. You must have been home-schooled because you have no reading comprehension skills. Put your thinking cap on and tell me what the difference between More people would do it if they thought they could get away with it, and More people dont do it because they fear the consequences is. Heres a hint: No difference. You can say the same thing using different words. And, youre using the word lying awful loosely for a guy is defending people who hid a sexual predator. End of lesson.


        • Daniel Woodworth

          Thats true enough, but you didnt say more people dont do it because they fear the consequences.

          You said, in the comment I replied to, that Seewald said that the only reason every man doesnt molest little girls is because they fear the consequences. More is not the same as every or is it you who needs the lesson on reading comprehension?

          You badly misrepresented what he said with the intent to defame him. Admit it, apologize, and move on.


          • cndrs12345

            Thank you Daniel! The journalist on this story is a troll…and he put an inflammatory headline on his story and now has all these sheeples thinking this man said things that he didnt say. And theres many on here that even think it was Josh Duggars father in law who was quoted. Im so glad to see another person with the ability to read an article and not judge it by its headline. BTWloved the reference to home schooling (as if it is a bad thing)! lol! And, I want to add that I am in NO way defending what Josh Duggar did-just wanting the facts to be correct.


        • Daniel Woodworth

          Also, its odd that you use home-schooled as a pejorative, given that home-schooled students consistently outperform their peers in every category.


    • cndrs12345

      That is NOT what he saidread the article before commenting.


      • anencephalia

        He did not use those words exactly, but he did say that.
        Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh.
        Lack of opportunity or fear of consequences are often the only reasons that people dont do horrible things. Since the horrible thing being discussed is molesting children, it would be unreasonable to exclude molesting children from the category of horrible things.

        We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggars home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling.
        Since they do not teach self-restraint or the nature of consent to their children, it is reasonable that this happened. Further, creating monsters like this is their right, and the only available defense is to pray that these vicious predators dont find an opportunity to do anything to your children.

        Paraphrasing does not change the meaning. These are horrible people defending the horrible things that have been done.


      • Susan Fleming

        I DID read the article and thats exactly what he said. How are More people would molest if they thought that they could get away with it, and More people dont molest because they fear the consequences different? You DO understand that you can say the same thing using different words, dont you? Or, were you home-schooled?


        • cndrs12345

          Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh. We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggars home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling. Ive read it over and over and over. Still not seeing where he said more people would molest children….he just talks about sin in general. Ok, so what am I missing? Many people here have let the journalists put that idea in their head by the headline. And no, I was not home schooled although I know people who were and they are very educated.


  • Dina Nichole Combs

    The Duggars and all their supporters make me sick.


  • Dot

    Creepy, very creepy. Those poor children.


  • freespeechalways

    What he should have been quoting is 1Peter 2:13-17 regarding the coverup.


  • Zaphod Beeblebrox

    Whats the big deal? Theyre merely girls, which the Holy Bible reliably
    tells us are the rightful chattel property of Godly men, to be
    subjugated, dominated, and used as they see fit; servants little better
    than slaves. Its not like he committed REAL sin, like being Gay, or
    voting Democratic.
    NOTE: If you adhere to a bronze-age mythology
    that can and has been used to justify incest, child abuse, rape,
    slavery, murder, and genocide…you dont get to lecture me on morality.
    Ever.


    • Daniel Woodworth

      Its true that Christians probability wont get to lecture you on morality, but thats really only because youre too dull to listen, so theres very little point.

      More accurately, its because you have no morality, and yet act is if you do. Explain to me why the things you mentioned are wrong. You lie about the contents of the Bible, but why is lying wrong? For that matter, why are the things you claim the Bible says wrong, as you imply they are?

      You have no higher condemnation than I dont like it, and that holds no weight for me I can easily respond in kind, if it comes to that and has no bearing on the truth. You dont like the Bible, but its still the truth. In contrast, your morality is indifferent to truth: it is yourself, it evidently allows lying, since you just did that, and it cannot be convincing for anyone but yourself.


      • Michael Aronson

        You dont like the Bible, but its still the truth.

        Its true, in that its a book that exists. Its content, however, has repeatedly been shown to be contradictory and false.


        • ajani

          The Bible was written by man. Christians tend to have their own interpatation of the bible and tend to use it to justify ignorance.


      • Zaphod Beeblebrox

        Thank you for your critique. However, someone who sincerely believes that a compendium of misogynistic neolithic fairy tales prefaced by a story of a talking snake and a magic apple in an enchanted garden is the truth, the exegesis of which is widely accepted to (A) conflate willful ignorance and conscientious stupidity with virtue, and (B) define women as a lesser cut of meat (Thomas Corbin (R-SC); Google it) and whose primary rhetorical device is the ad hominem attack is prima facie unqualified to adequately assess the integrity or veracity of another person.


      • Lisa Irwin

        I think you need to read the bible a little better. I mean, really READ it, objectively. See whats actually written, not what you are TOLD it says. I have done both, it becomes two COMPLETELY different books.


        • Keith Cumbie

          Lisa, ever hear the phrase You cannot reason with a zealot. Its like trying to administer medicine to the dead.


      • Keith Cumbie

        You are one sick and delusional zealot Boy.


    • terry513

      you need to be set on fire dude.


      • Zaphod Beeblebrox

        Yeah; I get a lot of that from the followers of the Prince of Peace.


      • Lisa Irwin

        You need to take your own advice. Such a good, moral Christian statement. Ugh.


  • Ed Durand

    Sick Satanic SOB


    • Lisa Irwin

      Satan had nothing to do with this. The responsibility lies with him alone. Just another form of blaming another for your mistake. Free will is a wonderful thing.


  • Denise Hanks

    Omg teenagers do stupid things! Stop being so critical. Are you without sin? It was dealt with and is living a normal productive life!


    • susanmcnichol

      It was not dealt with. You dont have any idea what you are talking about.


      • el

        He came forward, apologized, went to councelling. What else should he do to classify it as dealt with….He said he actions were inexcusable. At 14, we dont send boys to prison for fondling. In fact, though I dont agree with it, grown men avoid prison for worse. Look at Harvey Milk, a known pederast. He ends up with a postage stamp in his honor and a day of recognition where schools are to teach of his accomplishments. Somehow they skip the part where he molests and rapes boys…The way this thing is blown up in the news, and then other worse situations are kept silent, really makes me wonder what the underlying purpose within the media. How do they decide who gets a pass and who doesnt?


        • Lisa Irwin

          Who gets a pass on sexual molestation???? Say the same when its one of YOUR kids!


          • el

            Im sorry, my comment is misunderstood. I am not saying anyone should get a pass. I am asking why the media grants it to some then denies it to others. The media decides what we learn of these things, and what we dont. Silence for some, headlines for others.


    • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

      So, what you are telling me, Denise. Is that if you found out that your son was sneaking into your daughters bed & squeezing her boobs & fondling her genitals, poking his finger into her vagina or perhaps pressing his penis against her; that if you dealt with it & asked her to forgive him that it would all be OK?
      There is sin & there is sin. Do you also think if women are raped that they deserved it? This WAS rape. even if his sisters & the other girls werent penetrated they were violated. It forever changed how they felt about themselves & their sexuality. This wasnt a case of playing doctor or you show me yours & Ill show you mine. Those are normal. This was a case of sneaking into his sisters beds & touching them. There are some things you cannot just pray away.
      Why are you defending him?


      • Judith_Priest

        Because shes a Christianist who believes that Christian misdeeds dont count.


      • Michael Aronson

        There is sin & there is sin.

        Actually, there isnt. There is crime, and there are morally reprehensible legal acts. This is the former.


    • Batman in Arkham


    • Janice Adams

      And how do you know this. Pedophilia is a mental disease. Usually pedophiles remain pedophiles throughout their life time. It makes no difference if they get married they will still seek out children. He has children of his own and I am sure has spent time alone with them. He could be molesting them.


    • Virginia in Barre Town

      You are totally mad! WHAT ABOUT THE GIRLS? Do you think they are living a normal productive life? Do you think their feelings and emotions have been dealt with? Do you honestly believe that the girls havent been told that its all their own fault? I repeat, you are mad.


    • Gin1234

      This was not a stupid thing and does not come under the list of possible things that stupid teenagers will do. You are basically saying that boys will be boys, a bogus excuse that someone not willing to address what happens straight on uses.


    • Lisa Irwin

      Oh, well that makes everything all better! As a survivor of sexual abuse myself, by, *gasp*, a good Christian (I use that term lightly) family member, Ill let you guess on what you can go do to yourself. You, and everyone else who thinks like you regarding something like this!


  • my5cents

    Everyone is covering for the child molester/pedophile. If this was anyone else, theyd be behind bars right now. Even if they were rich (which happened to a rich man in our town). No one is above the law. They twist their teachings and explanations to fit what they do. The bible is open to interpretation, and they interpret it to fit however they choose to live their lives. With that interpretation they believe they are doing no wrong. And, if they do, they just ask forgiveness and everything is fine. It boggles the mind that they teach the girls to wear long dresses, long sleeves, and to cover their bodies so as to not be a temptress, and then they say its okay for a brother to molest them anyway. Really? Give me a break!!


    • Virginia in Barre Town

      Well obviously those trashy little girls didnt cover ENOUGH!


  • Virginia in Barre Town

    What a family of Psychopaths! The same people who claim atheists dont have a moral compass!

      I will pit an Atheists moral compass against these guys anytime!

        Bigots do not have a moral compass


        • kslgnc

          Most bigots I know are self-proclaimed Christians


    • Judith_Priest

      Atheists HAVE to have moral compasses!
      Theyre not just following some external set of rules theyve never questioned, like most are.

      I know many, and they are, if a bit snarky, some of the best and most honest people I know!


      • Guest

        Absolutely true. As soon as I hear a person defining him/herself by a religion-label, I start to distance myself. Its not a good sign. It means that empathy and reason are not possible, and that everything I am as a person is judged through a narrow, subjective and anachronistic lens.


        • Lynda Prado

          You distance yourself because someone is a religious person??? Wow, you must be a lonely person. I cant bring myself to distance myself from someone on the basis of their religious beliefs or even the lack of belief. I have friends and family that are Catholic, Mormon, Jewish, Agnostic and Athiest. I believe that people have the right to believe or not believe what ever they want and Im fine with whatever they choose. How very sad for you that you are the way you are. You must miss out on getting to know some great people by your prejudice.


          • anencephalia

            I agree! Everyone should embrace religious people, no matter what their religion is. Unless they arent Christians, in which case the bible says to kill them.
            On second thought, it might be best to stay away.


          • Lynda Prado

            Youve got issues, I take it.


          • anencephalia

            Christianity has killed more people than influenza, typhus, and the bubonic plague combined. That makes it the deadliest disease in history.
            The fact that it is a contagious mental illness does not, in any way, reduce its virulence.


          • Lynda Prado

            Well you have the right to believe what you want but so do I. Were just going to have to disagree on this. Not a single thing you can ever say is going to change my mind.


          • Keith Cumbie

            Because you are a zealot and incapable of rational thought.


          • ajani

            Are you suggesting all Christians have a mental illness?.By the way Christians fought many wars that have killed many people including Christians.Christians are being killed everyday in some parts of the world.I say bigots are the mentally ill.

  • susanmcnichol

    Sure, God will forgive your sins if you ask for forgiveness, even if you commit murder, but murder has no statute of limitations as it is still punishable by law. Incest and rape and molestation should have no statute of limitation. Let God forgive them but let them still suffer the legal punishment under the law.


  • RightwingLieDetector

    The first thing I thought when I read about the Duggar Daddy-Inlaw comments about Josh Duggar was this guy was just upset the gravy train ran off the tracks when TLC cancelled their idiotic show.


  • Glenna Jones-Kachtik

    I am sorry. Child molesters are not cured, Ever. They may stop for a bit but sooner or later they WILL molest again. When this guys grandchildren are molested by their father? Will he still be so forgiving? Yes, there will always be temptation but molesting children, your sisters, cousins etc. doesnt If you have to believe in Christ or GOD to know that fondling your sisters breasts or genitals (or anyone females body without consent then you arent moral & never will be. It doesnt make it better if someone Found the Lord if they molest, they molest. As a matter of fact it just makes it creepier.There are people on the pervert watch list who were drunk & wandered out of their house & exposed themselves … but this little pervert because he claims Christianity isnt even hauled in?


    • Michael Aronson

      Child molesters are not cured, Ever. They may stop for a bit but sooner or later they WILL molest again.

      Thats a pretty bullshit claim. So there has never been anyone in history whos molested one and only one child?

      Clearly, if this entire scandal proves anything, its that a lack of education runs in this family. Your suggestion that theyre unable to learn from their mistakes is pretty horrific.


      • Lynda Prado

        If they are caught young enough, they might be able to be helped but if theyre an adult then, NO, they cannot and will not ever be changed. I helped to put one of these monsters behind bars not once but twice (Same person) The first time, he got caught and I taped him over the phone, admitting to what he had done and then testified before a grand jury. The second time, there was a news broadcast about a man that exposed himself on a bus. The police were looking for him but didnt know who he was. I saw the picture and e mailed the police, I live in a different state now from him and told them who it was. When this monster went to court the first time, he admitted that he wouldnt and couldnt change and that if given the chance, he would do it all over again.


        • Michael Aronson

          Im sorry to hear about your terrible experience, but your experience =/= universal fact.


  • Judith_Priest

    Can you imagine what it is like to be the one little girl who wrote
    the letter about what was happening to them, and stuck it in a church
    library book, like a message in a bottle?

    A woman in her 60s found it, and believed her.

    I hope theyre not Guilting that one little girl, for messing up the Family Gravy Train.

    But I bet they ARE. I bet theyre getting the nonsense *I* got in Sunday School when *I* was a little girl:

    Our priest came in to give us a lesson on the Ten Commandments. He
    pointed out that it IS possible for a Small Child to commit adultery.
    How? By spreading stories about his or her family outside the home,
    or about teachers at the church school.

    HMMMMMM …. I was *8*, and I realized that guilting kids about talking about what goes on at home was a PERFECT cover for beatings and molestations. I didnt know the *word* molestation, but I knew a few girls already who had
    problems with a brother or a stepdad. Yes, at age 8

  • Lia

    You totally misinterpreted what Mr. Seewald said. He actually said we are ALL capable of the same kinds of sin, and it is only through happenstance and lack of opportunity that more of us do not stray into the same thing Josh did. We are all sinners saved by Grace of Jesus Christ. And, if you are not under that Grace, you are still vulnerable to sin. It is the Grace of Jesus that changes us as Christians. It is happenstance and perhaps the good teaching of parents that dissuades us as we grow into adults without straying into abusing siblings sexually. It happens in the best of families, of that you can be sure. If it didnt happen in yours, whisper, Thank God.


    • Batman in Arkham

      There is no misinterpretation there. We are not ALL capable of sexually abusing other people. Deciding not to touch someone sexually without their consent isnt happenstance. And if you think it is, CPS needs to be on your doorstep yesterday.


      • cndrs12345

        Sorry, Batman, but gotta disagree with you. NOBODY said everybody was capable of sexually abusing othersthat was simply the journalist putting an inflammatory headline on a story. The man (who is not even Joshs father in law but his sisters) said that more people would SIN if they could get away with it. Ive read this article at least 20 times and still am not getting where he says everybody would abuse children if they could. I think what Josh Duggar did is horrible! And I would have no qualms about hurting anyone that did that to any of my grandchildren. Not taking up for the Duggars at alljust wish people would read the articles before judging.


        • Batman in Arkham

          And sin in the context of talking about Josh Duggar means sexual abuse. Are you being purposefully obtuse for the sake of defending your Invisible Sky Wizard, or are you just hopelessly stupid?


          • cndrs12345

            Sadly Batman…you have totally lost me. Not sure who the Invisible Sky Wizard is, but since Im not hopelessly stupid I will concede that you have won this argument.


          • cndrs12345

            And I wonder what context you would have taken his comments in if the headline had been different. Just curious! Also, why dont you go back and read all these comments againyoull see how many people think it was Joshs father in law that made these comments. As I saidthe journalist accomplished exactly what he set out to do!


      • Lia

        Hey, manbat, in Arkansas, you grossly misrepresented what I said by way of explanation of Mr. Seewalds comments. By no means do I approve of or accept child molestation by anyone. Mr. Seewals was trying to say that we are all capable of sin. Sin is sin. Some sins are more grievous than others, and thats a fact. But we are all capable of sin in some fashion. When faced with the possibility of sin, we, individually, have a choice to make. Will we, or will we not. This is usually a conscious choice that we make, all though with minor sins, it may seem that we dont make a choice, but in fact, we do. BTW, you should be a little more aware of your tendency to jump into a situation and make sweeping judgements. Thats a very hurtful thing to do, and I am sure it isnt your intention.


    • Gin1234

      Actually in this family, Josh had plenty of opportunity due to his parents, due to the number of children that his parents were not able to look after, and take care of, and no not all of us would do the same thing.


    • Jerome

      You are disgusting.


  • protempore

    What a sick mindset. So its OK to do all the things decent folk would not even think to do because every Sunday the sins are forgiven? This guy needs not only a reality check but also some lessons on living a decent life in the real world. His attitude is one of the reasons Im an atheist.


  • cndrs12345

    Did anybody here actually read this article? First offthis is NOT even Joshs father-in-law. Secondhe never said that most people would touch children if they thought they could get away with it. He said that more people would SIN if they could get away with it. Dont let these blood sucking, attention seeking journalists do your thinking for you. Its their job to get people riled up with inflammatory headlines. Sometimes it tells a completely different story if YOU JUST READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE!


    • Batman in Arkham

      Theres this little thing called context. When talking about sin and what Duggar did, this scumbag is not being general. He is, in fact, saying that its only a lack of opportunity and fear of consequences that keeps everyone from molesting children. And hes absolutely wrong.

      Perhaps CPS needs to pay him a visit.


      • Daniel Woodworth

        No, thats not what hes saying. At all. It isnt even close to what hes saying.


      • cndrs12345

  • D Toole

    Child protective services needs to be investigating this entire family… and every other goodChristian whos supporting them.
    Child predators dont just stop abusing, and with a family full of people making excuse after excuse for him, it seems theres more than likely numerous abusers / predators in this bunch.


    • Daniel Woodworth

      To begin with, a child cannot have been a child predator. Its a matter of definitions, and it is important.

      More important, he obviously did stop. If hed continued, with a reality show there, he would certainly have been caught.

      Has it occurred to you to ask why he was able to? By your own admission, sexual predators dont stop, and yet this one did? Why?


      • Michael Aronson

        a child cannot have been a child predator

        Apparently he can.


      • D Toole

        How do you know he stopped? The reality show wasnt filming in their bedrooms, or late at night when everyone was sleeping. Besides, the extreme culture they surround themselves with is a very secretive, tightknit community. Therefore, it cannot be expected that the viictims would just speak up if it were happening still.
        As to your child cannot prey upon another child argument, that is false. A TEENAGER can just as easily prey upon a child as an adult can. Most sexual predators start in their early / mid teens.


        • Daniel Woodworth

          I didnt say a child cant prey on another child, I said a child cant be a child predator. It is impossible, by definition, for a child to be a pedophile. If were going to use words, we have to follow their definition, or the exercise is pointless.

          And no, if he had gone on, the reality show would have caught him. Something like that doesnt happen without leaving lasting ripples, and those would be easy enough to see.

          We have every reason to believe that he stopped. The question, then, is why he was able to.


          • D Toole

            A 14 year old isnt a child.
            Would you leave your children alone with him?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Yes, a 14-year-old is a child. Legally, certainly, and probably physically as well. In any event, a 14-year-old certainly isnt an adult.

            What, then, or now? If you mean then, then no. If you mean now, then I would have no more qualms than I would leaving children with anyone I didnt know.


          • Lisa Irwin

            My parents left my sister and I with our grandfather. He molested us. My mother believed us and reported him. We didnt pray it away. She got us counseling, and lots of it. Guess what? Its STILL a struggle dealing with it. But I guess we were evil and tempted him, right? At least, we heard that from his congregation at times. He molested my male cousin too. Want to guess what my cousin was jailed for? It wasnt stealing.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Im very sorry to hear that, Lisa. Always remember, regardless of what anyone told you, that it was not and could not have been your fault, and that you never need to be ashamed for having been the victim of a crime.

            Its unfortunate that some groups of professing Christians put a man ahead of God, and when they do that, they become unknowing partners to all manner of abuse. The answer, whether Christian or not (although I believe the Christian has a more self-consistent reason), is to be absolutely unyielding in pursuit of the truth. That means never being afraid to condemn unacceptable behavior, and also being careful to condemn behavior for what it truly is. In this case, the hyperbole of the original post, in calling a child a child molester, tends to draw attention away from the actual crime, and that is why it needed to be corrected.


          • Michael Aronson

            Well, as long as hes not an adult, I guess its fine by Jesus if he molests as many children as he wants, right?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            As we both know, thats quite obviously not what I said. Whether or not he was an adult changes what he did, not whether or not it was wrong.


          • Michael Aronson

            It legally changes the description. It doesnt actually change the fact he molested children.

            You keep making excuses for this guy, Daniel. You must know a lot of molesters at your church.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Yes, it changes the definition. So use the actual definition; dont make up new definitions for words on the spot. Thats the entire extent of what I was trying to establish there. Thank you for conceding that I was correct.

            Lets try to keep the ad hominems to a dull roar here, Michael.


          • Michael Aronson

            Except this isnt a court of law. He still molested children.

            Have you had experience molesting children, Daniel? Is this why youre so defensive?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            This may be surprising to you, but even outside of courtrooms making up definitions on the spot is frowned on. He molested children; he is not a child predator which was the entire point.

            Again with the ad hominems. I realize thats probably as far as your mind goes, but it does not become you.


          • Michael Aronson

            Daniel, Im just asking an honest question about your religious beliefs and values. The offense you take is, once again, a reflection on you.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Since youre changing the subject, does that mean that youve finally decided to join is in the real world, where words have real definitions?


          • Michael Aronson

            The funny thing is youre the only one arguing about whether hes a child predator, which isnt actually a legal term.

            And I see youre ducking my questions about your own history with molestation in the church. Do you have something to hide?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Obviously were not discussing legal terms, then. Im glad to see youre making headway in your reading comprehension.

            Its not actually that common in churches. Im assuming, since youre asking, that youve had experience molesting children yourself?


          • Michael Aronson

            Obviously were not discussing legal terms

            Whoa, the goalposts just shifted!

            Its not a term at all, actually. The term is sexual predator. And that is a legal term.

            Are your repressed memories of being molested clouding your logic abilities?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            What were going to do need you to do is scroll all the way up to the original post, where the person I was responding to called him a child predator, and read that.

            Come back once you finish, and maybe youll have a better idea why we were using the term child predator.


          • Michael Aronson

            What were going to do need you to do is

            Whoa, youre getting really bothered by all these repressed memories coming back, arent you?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            So . . . nope? Youre going to change the subject again instead of admitting you were all wet?

            You know, I get the impression that leave comments largely as a way of letting off steam in between doing . . . whatever it is you do that doesnt seem to take up much of your time. Have you thought about knitting?


          • Michael Aronson

            I get the impression that leave comments largely as a way of letting off steam

            Nah, I just enjoy exposing hypocritical illiterate religious folks who have a history of molestation.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Have you been able to read the original comment yet? I know its probably more than you usually read, but try hard. Maybe sound out the words as you say them?


          • Michael Aronson

            Oh yes, I liked both her comments.

            Now, please turn down the high deflection beams and tell us more about your history with molestation, either as the perpetrator or victim.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Ah, so you obviously recognize why we were discussing the term child predator, and, from what you said earlier, you recognize that I was correct to take exception with its use. Im glad to see we agree.


          • Michael Aronson

            Really? Youve been butthurt this whole time over someones personal description of a child molester?

            You clearly have more at stake for defending child molesters.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Didnt we just cover that? You admitted he wasnt a child molester which refers to adults earlier in the thread. Your position is confusing; you admit that his age changes the definition that applies, and then go on to use that definition?

            If were going to use words, were going to have use the definitions of the words, however much youd like them to mean something else.


          • Michael Aronson

            No, Daniel, your reading comprehension is quite lacking. I established that child molester is not actually a term. However, it is quite clear what the OP meant he molested children.

            You are so nobly defending this child molesters honor.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Im going to let you reread that and edit.


          • Michael Aronson

            Which part confuses you and hurts you in the butt?


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Just reread it.


          • Michael Aronson

            Yes, I am quite satisfied with it. You continue this inane deflection and fail to answer my simple question. The hurt of butt is strong with you.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Oh dear, thats bad. Well, Ill leave you to it. Eventually youll figure it out.


          • Michael Aronson

            So you have no adequate response to:

            1. That you are defending a man who molested children because a term has made you butthurt.

            2. Your own personal history with molestation.

            3. How your Christian beliefs encourage you to molest children.

            Interesting. Your continued deflection is very revealing.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            So youre standing by your statement that child molestation is not a term?


          • Michael Aronson

            Nice deflection! You are quite good at not answering questions. I bet that came in useful during the police investigation of your molestation crimes.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Weve only ever been talking about the definitions here, Michael. That was my original comment, and that is what you disagreed with initially. If I were going to take the same approach as you, I would ask why you feel such a powerful need to move from the definition to a practical example, but that particular approach is childish and, I might add, would be exceptionally callous if you ever did encounter a victim of abuse.

            So, returning to the original topic, do you still stand by your statement that child molestation is not a term?


          • Michael Aronson

            Weve only ever been talking about the definitions here, Michael.

            Oh my, your reading comprehension is disintegrating rapidly. I wonder what Jesus would say about that. Hed probably come over and molest you a little to cheer you up.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            Wow, that was insightful. If I was four.

            At this point, I begin to feel like Im feeding an addict. What youre doing is equivalent to flatulating into a megaphone. Sure, you can make a lot of noise, but its a little bit offensive and a chimp could do it just as well.

            Ill leave you with much the same caution as I ended our last discussion, but this time Id add that child molestation is not a joking matter. You seem to treat it as a comic foil for jokes at the expense of those you dislike. That is entirely inappropriate, and I really hope you never encounter an actual victim of abuse while youre taking that approach.


          • Michael Aronson

            Daniel, I am sincere in my concern with your history of molestation. If youve committed a crime, its best to fess up now. If somebody has molested you, say something.


          • Daniel Woodworth

            No, wait, Ill give you a hint: I established that child molestation is not actually a term.

            You sticking with that?


        • herewardpooley

          Mine did.


  • irishcowgirl21

    The situation with Josh has been dragged out enough. I think that its time to drop it and leave it in the past.


    • Michael Aronson

      Yeah, its a good thing his children wont have to live with this for the rest of their lives.

      Oh wait . . .


    • Lisa Irwin

      Say that when it happens to one of YOUR Kids.


  • bpgagirl22VAnow

    Sure hope all this stress doesnt cause Anna or Jessa to miscarry. Lord have mercy!


    • Lisa Irwin

      They would probably try to prosecute them if it did, or at least tell them its THEIR fault.


  • Marie Therese

    The whole family and extended family is messed up worse than the Kardashians…amazing.


  • Batman in Arkham

    He was 14, not 4. Old enough to know right from wrong. He sexually assaulted his sisters, and we will call him what hes admitted to being: a child molester.


  • Virginia in Barre Town

    Glenna, I doubt they spent even a minute giving those girls any counseling or comfort. After all, thats what females are for, isnt it gratifying men? (Id like to get my hands on the whole lot of them.)


  • Lynda Prado

    Probably not a whole lot of time was spent reassuring those poor girls that they still had worth. I have a feeling that the girls werent valued very much by that family. They tend to marry the girls off as soon as they legally can so theyll be done with having to take care of them.


  • kkb

    Religionist War on Women & Children continues, unabated. Vile monsters, these religious folks.


  • Lisa Irwin

    Wow


  • Lisa Irwin

    As an objective reader of both your comments (I dont know either of you), Michael, I agree with you.


  • Lisa Irwin

    Oh yes. The liberal media made all of this up. Riiiigggghhhhttttt


  • Lisa Irwin

    HE IS A MOLESTER, YOU TWIT!


  • Nancy Drew

    The predator often believes he (or she) is dong nothing wrong; that in fact, the victim is grateful to have such a nice predator initiate them. The wiring is definitely arced in them.


  • cndrs12345

    GuestI am so sorry for what you have had to deal with. Fortunately, I havent experienced that myself but know people that have. I hope, for your sake, that you can get counseling to help you deal with it. Sexual abuse is never right and a child should never be held responsible for it. Im glad that at least today it is more open so maybe it can be prevented more.


  • Barbara Anderson

    OOPS, now we know it is generational. It is a bet this in-law is or has molested children.


  • Michiel1965

    I would rather have killed myself than touching my children. Jeebus has messed their heads up big time.


  • Theoldlady

    I would love to find out just what a judge or jury would say to that admission in court! They are all sickos!


  • ajani

    It is difficult to believe TLC had no clue of Josh Duggar molesting little girls.Oprah Winfrey cancel her show with the Duggar Cult when she found out about the child molester.Boycott TLC.


  • Thom Lee

    Now we know why his wife married him.


  • marytg

    I hope this guy does not have aan daughters.


  • Carol Ann Hunigan Booher

    it is far more common in the good old hypocritical Christian families than the non… That I feel assured. They are so perverted they think they can get by and just pray it away, it does not work that way for the victims..It never ever goes away.. As in the Duggers they are the height of hypocracy, with their holier than thou attitude toward Gays and others..Maybe their God is telling them something by allowing this to come out now


  • desrtrse

    remember this is arkansas…


  • Kelli Crackel

    No, the reason we dont molest children is not because we are afraid of the consequences. The reason we dont molest children is because its repellent, disgusting, repulsive, and morally and ethically wrong. If the only thing keeping you from molesting children is your fear of the consequences, get help. Youre a pedophile.


  • Ikea Monkey

    Murder is NOT forgiven and molesting children is NOT forgiven. Who is doing this forgiven? Because, the murder victim isnt forgiving their murderer, and the victim would be the only one that could forgive, except, they are DEAD. Chances are, victims of molestation are so forgiving either. That is a very hard thing to get over or forgive a person. Pray to an imaginary sky god all you want, that is not where forgiveness comes from.


    • Lia

      There is only ONE unforgivable sin….and if you believe in nothing, as seems to be the case, it is meaningless to you.


      • Juanita Thomas

        So as long as you believe in God, anything goes, you can do whatever you want and you are forgiven. What a load of crap.


      • A. Dizzle

        OMFG.


        • Lia

          And so does Jesus approve of your iconic outburst? OMFG? is that for shock value. What I can tell you for sure is that God will sort out people like you on the other side. If I were you Id be careful what rotten fruit I was carrying around in my basket. (Youre probably not sharp enough to catch that one, underhanded pitch).


          • JamieHaman

            The good news is God is also going to sort out people like you too. Because while God may forgive all those murderers and child rapists who repent, the rest of us have to live the the disasterous aftermath. I vote we sent them straight to God, and let him forgive that much sooner.
            The rest of us arent nearly so forgiving. I think God is going to be a lot more willing to forgive an iconic outburst a lot faster than a murderer or rapist.


          • A. Dizzle

            There is no god Lia.


        • Lia

          Im so impressed, NOT.


          • A. Dizzle

            I dont wake up to impress people like you doll face.


  • Antony N Jilly

    This comment is so sick! No NOT everyone!
    ~Jilly


  • Juanita Thomas

    Seewald is insane, the thing that keeps a person from doing those things is knowing what is right and wrong, you do what is right, I never have had any urge to molest my siblings, Christians use original sin as a cop out.


  • lois

    Talk about putting words in someone elses mouth! That headline is not at all what he said. Slander!


  • Sarah de Kroon

    Sigh. You people are such hypocrites. At 14 you probably were all doing things you would be disgusted to talk about openly. Cut the hypocrisy and lets get real for once! Lets bash someone to death that has just been doing what Hollywood promotes on the tv shows and of which is rampant in north america? the stats are out folks, read them, you all are sleeping with everyone else that is why everyone is divorced. This Duggar guy is just like yall and why is everyone so mad about it? I dont get it? I guess the difference is he appeared religious. He doesnt pull the wool over Jesus eyes dont worry everyone will be judged by the same measuring stick, everything will be put right on judgement day. This barrage of assaults against this man and his family is not helpful for his children…….since everyone seems to be concerned about the children right? Let us be the solution and keep the peace so that the children can move on from this, otherwise we are just as worse as they all are. :)


  • JamieHaman

    How do you know whether or not Josh Duggar stopped molesting little girls?? One time, curiosity, maybe twice, but 5 times for sure? Sorry, not buying it as curiosity, or exploration either. Id buy puberty in the first degree, for one offense, but not five.


  • Annitte

    Josh inserted himself into a 5 year old when he was 15. He should have had counseling, his victims should have had counseling and it seems they were 10-9-7 and 5. I dont judge Josh. I judge his parents who failed in their responsibility as parents. 1. They let it continue repeatedly after they knew what was going on. 2. They didnt get him any counseling 3.they didnt get the victims and counseling. 4. They belong to the patriarchy movement in which the men rule and the women are required to be submissive and obedient to the males.
