Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have pimped out their fertile wombs and children for years on 19 Kids and Counting, but they are now feeling the appropriate backlash after documents reveal the molestation past of their son Josh Duggar. Duggar, 27, who is staunchly against same-sex marriage and has previously stated that gay people are a danger to kids, admitted to molesting several of his sisters and other girls when he was a teenager.
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Duggar said in a statement. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
Counseling? Is that the protocol when it comes to admitted child molestation? Since the revelation, many people have called for TLC to cancel the series, and Duggar has resigned from his position at Family Research Council, an anti-LGBT group.
