Oh well, all is good since Baby Jesus forgave him, go forth and molest no more. Meanwhile spread hate and bigotry about LGBT people whilst not admitting publicly to his own sins. Remove the beam from his own eye, etc.

Hypocrisy at it's best. Something Christians have had two thousand years of experience with.

Families that suffer rape and incest tend not to be ok. The psychological effects are.devasating.

But if you believe that the family who sleeps together stays together then so be it

Not entirely true. That is the current liberal myth. In my family history, there were a lot of lawyers, publishers (L.A. Times editor, Harrison Gray Otis, when the L.A. Times was a conservative paper), inventors (Elisha Graves Otis, inventor of the safety elevator, my third cousin four times removed), the inventor of the steam shovel, etc.

There were a few infant deaths, but most lived into their late 60's and into their 70's. We are living longer today.

My family was large by today's standards. My mom had six. She always said she wanted ten!

That isn't a quote of mine. But you all know that you supported Bill Clinton, who was probably doing worse than Josh Duggar from the time he first heard the word, "sex." He gets a pass. He was never condemned by the Left, and is still their "hero."

A friend made this observation:
"If Josh Duggars were out in the world doing his thing, the same liberals that are screaming 'child molestation' would be cheering him on, and have given him a condom so he could have sex with his underage girlfriend."
I think that is a true statement. The reason the Left (and let's be honest, it was the homosexual Left) have gone after Josh Dugger (and in fact, it was an intentional effort to dig up dirt, out of pure hatred, because they learned this through a FOIA search) is because he is Christian and the FRC speaks out against "Gay marriage." It is the extreme Leftist organization, "The Southern Poverty Law Center" that is behind this, because they call the FRC a "hate group." (Amazing that they don't see themselves as a "hate group.")

I haven't heard any condemnation of Lena Dunham yet from the left, who molested her sister. Why not?

Well, you all defend Bill Clinton, don't you? Rapist, molester. Besides, what Josh Dugger has been accused of has been blown all out of proportion to what he actually did. Some have even used the word, "rape."

The worst he did was that he (to use today's terms) touched his sisters "inappropriately."

Gee, when I was 15 years old, my first kiss was from a girl three years older (she kissed me first) on a park bench by a lake. Today, she would be charged with corruption of a minor! A sexual predator!

Let it be known that myself and my friends and family are all very very far right on most issues but it's the infection of the GOP by fundamentalist ""Christians"" in the seventies that began the downward spiral of the GOP to the point that we see it today.

In my political belief system I personally am not bound by religious teachings or dogma of any persuasion.

it's human filth like the Duggars that continue to perpetuate a stereotype that is simply not accurate in many instances when it comes to conservative viewpoints.

I don't even know who the Duggars are except for seeing they have a ton
of kids and a reality show.
Anyway my purpose for posting in this thread is simply to say that in my
opinion the word "molestation" is misapplied too often, here and in many
other cases where only rubbing is involved which is not true molestation,
although it is still inappropriate.
And a young boy still going through puberty was fooling around and
felt up his sister, I mean it's wrong but is it MOLESTATION ?

And they same left give young black men who assault law enforcement and commit horrible crimes a pass, because they're just "kids".
