Well, if that isn't hypocrisy elevated to an art form.

For those unfamiliar with the FRC, it's an organization that's very, very focused on gay people and how they are a horrible influence on America, in particular America's children. It is only logical that they hire Josh Duggar (oldest son of the Duggar family of reality TV fame) as Executive Director - good Christian, member of the Quiverful movement, raised in a highly faithful family, a paragon of sound family values.

Also, it turns out, a child molester.

Daddy Duggar knew (for about a year) before doing anything about it. (It's probably how his faith handles this sort of thing, I'm not up on current doctrine.) And then went to the authorities, who - well, did nothing, really.

So the scrambling has begun. I am not going to post photos of Josh shaking hands with Ted Cruz, Scott Walker and Rick Perry, they're out there. For the Duggars, I guess the TLC gravy train left the station.

And for the Family Research Council, well - nice job living down to expectations.

I do love how the Duggars were out claiming that LGBT people were going to molest children, when they were hiding a molester in their home.

A saying regarding motes, beams etc. comes to mind. Really good advice there, people should listen more to that guy.

There is a difference between redemption and repeatedly sweeping offenses under the rug.

It is better to have standards and have people that fail to live up to them ( and get kicked out) than to not have any standards at all.

Has anyone actually read the accusation? Unless the story has changed again, which it seems to do daily, he was originally accused by his father of inappropriate touching of his girlfriend when he was a teen. With the Duggars, that could be holding hands.
