Thank you for this. I wish I could give you a million rep points.

I imagine this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg in this weirdo, creepy family. Let's see what else comes to light.

So unhelpful.

No one is saying it's NORMAL. Some of us are saying IT'S COMMON. TOO COMMON.

Not saying it's OKAY because it happens. SAYING IT HAPPENS MUCH MORE THAN REPORTED.

This unhelpful shaming response is one reason it's not reported. It's bad enough as it is, much less trying to get across to people with an agenda that it happens and needs to be addressed!!!

I'm surprised, yet not surprised.

I suspect there are other skeletons in the closet, which we all have. But if you are going to point fingers at others its so much worse when your own secrets come out.
Excellent, if he has confessed to a crime, pack him off to prison. Then the apology will mean something.

Well, how about some specific examples of hypocritical Josh?

Josh Duggar, the oldest of 19 children, made the rounds Friday at a central Missouri rally for Santorum after previously doing the same in Iowa, Oklahoma, Georgia and many places in between. “Our family is like the epitome of conservative values,” Duggar said. “People connect to us in that way.”

It doesn't matter. The leghumpers will continue to rationalize the Duggar and their actions.

I don't think it's common, but even if it is, it's disgusting and harmful. That creepy dude's wife better keep a close eye on her own kids.

You are being ridiculous. Of course no one just blurts out something like that to an acquaintance over coffee.

I have had many close friends who have shared difficult experiences with me, such as rape, serious mental illness in their family, physical abuse. But I've never heard of a brother fondling a sister. I have no doubt that it happens. But I contend it is not so common, and definitely not NORMAL, to the point that anyone should view it lightly!

No different??? You really think that? Sibling molestation isn't just something every family goes through Out come the apologists The Duggars are hypocrites... working for an anit-gay hate group and accusing gay people of being sexual perverts when the real perverts are under their own roof.

Even if people aren't saying it's okay, there seems to be an undercurrent of "well, all families have issues and this is just an issue."

And all families DO have issues, but incest is a HUGE issue. It's not just a matter of Mom or Dad having too much to drink occasionally, or Uncle Sid did some time in jail for securities fraud. That people seem so quick to shrug it off is disturbing.
