Was it as equally as disturbing when this family were pandering to hateful people when the Duggars spread lies about gay people? Or is that ok?

You can't read apparently.

I never said it was normal. I said it was common. Maybe you should look up the meaning of the two. You seem confused. It's the hysteria. Your brain is addled.

That's not our fault. Its the parents' fault. They put their kids in the limelight and made their stance on other people's families loud and clear.

Would you be willing to leave Josh Duggar alone with your kids or any other kids that you care about?

Praying to Jesus doesn't cure a pedophile. Molesting 5 young girls multiple times, one which was most likely only 5 years old at the time is disturbing behavior.

NONE of it is okay. So much hate.

Yours isn't any more lovely than theirs though.

Have you ever told a lie? Do you stand for lying? What else do you stand for?
I don't think you know what hypocrisy means. It means saying one thing and doing another. The Duggars hold themselves out as exemplary Christians all while hiding the fact that their son sexually assaulted four of their daughters.

I'm neither holding myself out as an exemplary Christian nor calling anyone else out as a threat to family or society.

The sad irony in all of this is if the parents had gone to the authorities as soon as they learned of the abuse, the public would likely never have learned of any of this. Had a proper investigation been done, all parties involved would have gotten real counseling and, being a juvenile, Josh's record would have been sealed. His victims would not be dragged into the spotlight like they are now. Please keep that in mind before going off about the "haters" digging up dirt on the Duggars and exposing this. Jim Bob and Michelle majorly failed all of their kids (including Josh) by their own inaction, and now the entire family pays the price.

But they wouldn't have been able to make a fortune in the meantime.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. I Timothy 6:10

What? Can ANY of you hysterics read?? I never said any of it was okay. I'm not defending it or him, but some of you are so hysterical and can't have a conversation.

Go get some wood, build a fire, let's burn him ALIVE!!

Or build a scaffold and HANG him!! Or even better, just hang him a little but leave him alive and then burn him so you can hear the screams? You aren't the VICTIM here, but act like you are.

I don't hear any concern for them (the victims) and how their lives will be opened up, turned inside out and violated all over again.
