Oh shit – things are getting real in the Duggar family! Finally, after months (well, years really, but in terms of public scandal it’s only been months) of absolute bullshit, Jessa Duggar (Seewald) has spoken out against her brother Josh, who not only molested her and several of her sisters and family friends when they were small children, but has since revealed that he cheated on his wife and has a porn addiction. Lovely man, for sure.
Jessa shared a blog post by her father-in-law Michael Seewald this week in which Michael basically called Josh a shitty Christian
“In commenting on this I do not wish to add any more distress to a family still recovering from the indignity of the publication of a police report detailing Josh’s sins as a teenager. Though I have never gotten to know Josh very well, I have great respect for his sorrowing parents and immense sympathy for his dear wife Anna and their four children. I myself have been mourning over the irreparable damage that has been done to many by this whole circumstance, yet the reason I feel obliged to make these remarks is an overwhelming desire to vindicate the name of God.”
To the person reading this, I want to caution you. Josh was a pretender. True Christians fail often, but their lives are truly being conformed to the image of Christ. Do not look at Josh and justify your own sins by dismissing the reality of genuine faith and a holy God. When you stand before God, you will not be compared to hypocritical Christians. You will be judged by God’s holy law. When you are found guilty, you will not get to say, “But what about Josh? I’m better than he is”. God’s wrath will burn against you because of your own sins.”
That’s just a VERY short excerpt and Michael goes IN on Josh if you want to read the full post. But that’s not all! Jessa’s also been sharing Facebook videos about how to prevent adultery, which I want to tell her isn’t really a thing. If someone’s going to cheat on you, they’re going to cheat on you and there’s nothing YOU can do to prevent it, and to say that you can is old school misogynistic bullshit, but whatever, we won’t go there.
To be honest, Josh is a piece of shit who has no intention of reforming himself or repenting for his sins. The Duggar family is a dysfunctional cult that has allowed Josh’s many MANY fucked up proclivities to not only continue, but to flourish, and it’s a real shame. I don’t think all of the Duggars are bad people, I just think they’re brainwashed and it’s kept them from being decent people and doing the right thing a lot of the time.
