thanks Doc.

I think the Duggers are crazy for doing this show.

Although I never watched it,but once or twice, there was always something not right about it.


they are crazy but the only smart/sane thing they have done is the show.

the network is footing the bill for their little religious army.
you think unkle daddy jim bob dugger and is constantly pregnant wife would be able to support that family without major help.
they NEED that show

Lena Dunham admitted to molesting her six year old sister and she's still the media's darling but this paper comes out and it's a scandal--why?



Because Lena Dunham isn't a holier than thou, hypocrite, telling other people how to live their lives, what God to worship,
and what is proper sexual behavior.

It really surprises me that you would defend this guy!!

Perhaps a little more research would be of benefit....

Ummm, Dunham doesn't?

She was smeared all over Obama campaign ads and tells us all precisely about her progressive beliefs and viewpoints all the time and the media enables her as much as it ever did the Duggars. In fact, I've never seen the Duggars plastered all over the way I have Dunham.

Interesting article about Bill Gothard.

Bill Gothard, Sexual Predator



Further, I was in an all-girls Gothard Bible study for a time (COMMIT), and several families I was close to were Gothard followers.

Bill Gothard never married. In the years that I’ve been blogging, I’ve heard more than a few people comment on this. How odd that someone who makes his living off of preaching about godly family life never married! It’s not like there would have been a shortage of picture-perfect Christian women who would have been honored to marry him, after all. Well, the reason Gothard never married is starting to come to light—and it’s very, very ugly.
..
So, on April 20, 2012, we published Lizzie’s story. And as soon as we did, we discovered that we had opened Pandora’s box. The emails and comments poured in like a flood, and we knew that we had stumbled across something bigger than we could have ever anticipated. A few weeks later, we published Annette’s story; a year later, Grace’s. Over the past two weeks, Meg has shared with us her very painful personal journey. And, later this week, we will share yet another account.

Since the time that Lizzie’s story was published, we have identified by name at least 34 different women who have experienced the same harassment, and we have sufficient evidence to believe that there are dozens more.

Just some randomness...
The Duggar children, I heard somewhere, are strictly monitored as far as their TV, internet, etc. so it would seem as if what some perceive as the "sexualization" in the media would NOT be a cause (if you will) of his sexual deviance.
I think that I would be concerned of his presence around other children.
I think too that some "pedophiles and perpetrators" were themselves victims at some time which makes me wonder about the older Duggars like Mom and Dad, family friends, etc. I am certainly NOT making an accusation, just wondering...I think it can span generations...
I have a feeling that privacy is an issue in that house and that books, discussions, or information about sexual education is non existent.

When I was very young, my sister gave me a book called "Changing Bodies, Changing Lives" (or minds or something) and it totally FREAKED ME OUT! I did however make it through adolescence and puberty relatively unscathed...

I wonder if this is indicative of the lack of respect for women in that household or with their particular idea of religion. It would seem as if. maybe, women are archaically seen as being there JUST for the man's sexual desire and/or for creating life. Certainly the victims wants, needs, and desires and feelings weren't considered and the fact that it happened more than once, I think shows a lack of compassion or empathy in the boy.

Like I said...randomness...

Mike Huckabee's Facebook Fans Tear Him To Shreds For Defending Josh Duggar


This morning, GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee posted a lengthy Facebook status affirming his “support for the Duggar family,” saying that Josh Duggar – who confessed to molestation – is being attacked by “blood-thirsty media” and deserves “our support.”

This set off a surprising reaction among Huckabee's Facebook fans, with a chorus of his once-supportive Republican loyalists declaring that he had lost their vote over his words on the matter.


It's what I've been saying......and I'm sticking to it.....
the GOP is about to implode.

If he was 14 when he did this....

....what exactly are we talking about here? Im not reading ages...so I can't make any assumptions there.

While sexually aggressive behavior is disgusting, i am wondering if there are details I am missing? Otherwise, isn't this extremely misandrist? It says that sometimes the girls would interact with him....is that assault? Or is it just that he is a "dirty little boy"?

Please tell me that there are other details beyond those found in the linked USA Today article.

"Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis said Judge Stacey Zimmerman ordered the 2006 offense report destroyed Thursday. Zimmerman didn't return a request for comment on Friday.

"The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record," Lewis said, adding that similar records are typically kept indefinitely. "As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned this report doesn't exist."

Neither Duggar nor his father, a former state representative, returned calls seeking comment Friday."

My mother is 72 has Parkison's and the Dementia that goes with Parkison's....This is the only show that we can get her to watch. She would state over and over if every family was like this one , the world would be safe...Little did we know....I really thought something was going to happen to tarnish thier image but I thought a divorce or one of the girls becoming pregnant out of wed lock.Never thought about Josh being a molster; I agree that sexual repression can cause a warpped idea of sex....I also dissaagree with how they handle the children dating; but my son had a child at 17. So who knows who has the right answers. My mother is very sad, and I know she will miss the show.

There are details we are missing. And I'm not positive of my legal knowledge on the issue, but if the girls were under 10, then what he did was illegal.

An underage person doesn't have the ability to consent. Neither does a sleeping person. That's in law. We don't know the ages of the girls. Being in a position where an older person, sibling or otherwise, initiates an unwanted sexual encounter, it doesn't matter if the younger one "plays" with them or not, IF they are more than four years apart.

The father found out about it by one of the daughters going to him and crying about it. Some of the girls resisted. This wasn't a mutual situation, at least in some of the cases. That's the legal side of it.

The moral side of it is a very different story. It wasn't just one girl, it was 5. And it wasn't just one time. And sometimes they were sleeping, sometimes not. But none of the advances were wanted. I'm sure each girl will be affected in varying degrees, but I know that at the time I was molested (I was about 12, he was 14-15) I wouldn't have told on him or wanted to punish him, because I looked up to him and wanted to be "cool". I resisted, cried and hated it, but I was confused and didn't know what to do or how to act. Only years later did I realize the impact it had on me. So, even though his sisters are saying they forgive him... they may not know the full extent of the damage. When I started dating seriously, that's when the damage started to show. In my situation, at least.

oh, i get what you are saying. Sexual aggression is disgusting in any form.

The details in the story are so scant that I just can't really form an opinion, other than of the opinion that others have formed thus far.

To me: this was just TLC's way of getting out from under the Duggers. Which, if true, is disturbing in that it seems like they may have known about this for awhile, and only used the information when it could be exploited for their benefit.

ETA: i should add that I have no clue what the laws are regarding 2 underage parties.

Can you imagine the outrage from the Right if one of Obama's daughters was caught in a compromising sexual position with a male or female.

The outcry would be deafening.

But the Right leaning members on this site want to let a Christian pedophile slide and make lame excuses for his behavior.


astonishing!!!


I think it needs a new term to be "Duggerized"

I will place a sizeable wager that this pedophile's behavior was not confined to his sisters. Any takers???

Here's a little info about pedophilia.....

good thing he wasn't a poor black kid, he would have been tried as an adult and in prison right now.

What I would like to know is this:

Why is Mike Huckabee involved with this family? Who told the judge to order and destroy this record? And what else is this family hiding?

Too many questions are now coming up that many do not want to talk about or mention. I also find it funny how every one is willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, and to forgive Josh Duggar, however, if a convicted child molestor were to move into their neighborhood, you can put good money down that they would be out with pitchforks and torches to stop such, and not wanting such from happening.

Meh. He was wrong but it wasnt rape and it was during the onset of puberty.
This is a little more than most kids go through because its usually awkward fumbling with someone the same age. I dont think he is a sexual deviant just a ball of hormones at the time. I dont think his parents should have been expected to go to the police (you go and confess something to the two people you should always be able to trust and they call the cops?)

Its just not news worthy. That said im glad the retarded ass show is over.

Because they're famous (have a huge following) and religious. If he's friends with them, it cements his standing with the religious community.

www.arktimes.com... (some details - one sister was under 6 at the time...)

What are they hiding? No clue... But there does seem to be more to this that we're being allowed to know.
