Have you ever told a lie? Do you stand for lying? What else do you stand for?
Actions speak louder than words.

It does put a new context on their claim that gay marriage would lead to other types of "deviant" behavior like brothers and sisters hooking up and wanting to get married too.

Not hard to surmise which one was molested while Josh sat her on his lap and read her a book?

Now Hannibal Lector is the reference?? Wow.

I think it's kind of despicable so many of you seem so happy this happened. Obviously, it's not even in the same universe in terms of the horrendous acts carried out by this pervert who molested his sisters, but I still find it pretty bad that so many seem to rejoice that it happened.
I'm not happy the molestation occurred.

I just happen to believe that those who are so damned worried about what everyone else does with their lives should make sure their own affairs are in order first.

I see no reason why the Duggars can't believe all the pre-marital stuff is a sin while at the same time having a child that suffers from a medical condition that drives him to touch underage females.
What medical condition might that be? They didn't seek any medical care for him. Do you think all the child molesters now serving time in prison should instead have been treated for their medical condition?

You don't think it's hypocritical to call out gays, in part because they are a threat to children, while covering up the fact that your own son sexually assaulted four of your daughters? Is it okay as long as he didn't sexually assault your sons?

Or, for Josh, who is now an adult, to have worked at the Family Research Council when he has a history of sexually assaulting his sisters?

I can't imagine what behavior you would consider hypocritical.

They HAD to know this would eventually surface, didn't they?
Actually their first special was in 2004. 14 Children and Pregnant Again! (TV Movie 2004) - IMDb
