‘Boys are curious’: Meet the Duggar defenders using religion to excuse fondling your sleeping sisters

Published

on

Supporters rallied around the Duggar family after they admitted to keeping quiet about their eldest son molesting young girls – including his own sisters.

Josh Duggar, his wife, and his parents issued statements Thursday confirming reports that he had engaged in “inexcusable” behavior more than a decade ago, when he was 14 years old, and he resigned his job with the anti-LGBT Family Research Council as calls poured into TLC to cancel the long-running “19 Kids and Counting.”

However, the Duggars’ defenders offered prayers and messages of support on social media.

“This shouldnt even be in the news,” said Stephanie Truesdell in a Facebook comment. “Its not current. Its done, over, and hes been forgiven. None of us, as fans/viewers, whatever, have any need to say anything. It was reported, and its been handeled. Its over.”

TLC has canceled all airing of “19 Kids and Counting” as the network ponders the show’s long-term future.

“Give them a break,” said Amy Blaydes Wilson. “He was a child himself. Everyone makes mistakes, but it is how you deal with it that makes you better or worse. They are human. We all are human.”

“Love y’all and Josh I admire you for admitting to your parents and getting help and again admitting it to Anna before you got married,” said Leah Maxwell McCool. “You are no different than anyone else who have sinned and changed their ways. I’m standing beside you 100%!”

“Love the whole duggar family you are so blessed!!!!” said Amy McGarvey.

“Everyone makes mistakes but our God is a forgiving God,” said Angela-Angie Nichols Long. “When we ask for forgiveness, he forgives us. He died on the cross not only for sins of that time but for future sins as well. Keep your head up and remember whose you are. :)”

“Um. Really? I can totally understand what happened,” said Kristy Marie. “Not excusing doing it without consent, but, teenage boys are curious. How many of you messed along & experimented before 18? Before marriage. Glass houses people…”

“It’s the contrast of who we are today verses yesterday that sets Christians apart,” said Jefanda Ward. “I’m so glad I serve a God who saves me because of who He is in spite of who I am. Praying for you Josh, He will keep you.”

“We are all good for nothing low life sinners that’s all we will ever be saved by the grace of god!” said Rachel Hayes Quinn. “Everyone makes mistakes and thank God for his forgiveness and for washing away our sins! You owned up to your actions payed for your mistakes and came to know the Lord as your savior that’s an amazing girl testimony not that your proud of your action but you overcame by the power of the blood and the word of your testimony. Praying for your family as you all receive harsh judgement and are being called hypocrites keep your head up. I would allow my future kids to stay with you and your wife anyday bc through the show yalls light really shines through and I can tell what a awesome family you all are mistakes and all we are all human.”

“God forgives all who admit their sins!” said Laura Loftiss. “#StandbytheDuggars”

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
