this entire thread is just a bunch of terrible attempts at shaming people for growing up in less than fortunate circumstances, being victims of abuse, having sexual abuse occur in one's family, etc. etc.


frankly, it's a bit disheartening to see something so delicate and upsetting being used as a way to take cheap shots at your least favorite demographic.


people are trying to talk like they give a single poo poo about the victims here but what they really want is just to try to elevate themselves by cutting into this family

if people cared about the victims at all they would recognize that having their family issues paraded around like this is not good or healthy or anything for the victims. neither is all of the vitriol aimed at their parents or family o r household or culture or religion.

it's straight up bullying, with a terribly thin half assed feigned nod towards the victim in how it's framed as if that has anything to do with the volume and depth of the public outcry

it's actually because Christ died for the sins of all mankind



also, you say "get away with it" like you're upset about the cosmic injustice of him getting something really sweet like robbing a bank or a candy store you sicko.

the kid was distraught about his actions, as any person with a working heart and soul who committed a terrible sin against someone else and against God, and willfully confessed his sins and sought help.

christian forgiveness may not make sense if you live in a world where doing terrible poo poo is fun and being punished is the cost of that, in that case it's just "cheating the marketplace " or whatever else liberals consider to be immoral

The goon I quoted asked where the duggar girls got their genes for being super hot. I don't think they're super hot I think they're average looking but they wear a lot of make up and with the proper lighting this makes them look hot, but with bad lighting it can backfire.

I know this is probably a troll but I'm gonna have to call bull poo poo. It's not like anyone picked a random family and the drug their dirty laundry out for everyone to see.

The problem is that the Duggars have chosen to represent a culture and lifestyle they claim is morally superior only for this monstrosity to come to light. Then rather than step out of the spotlight, they force their kids into an interview to try to convince the public that they did nothing wrong and the only issue with how they handled their son molesting their daughters is that people found out about it.

Josh himself represents the family research council and positioned himself as a moral authority on sex and baby having.

These people absolutely need to be torn from their pedistal for as long as they choose to cling for it. The day they admit that they let this tragedy occur and that they should have supported and protected his victims is when we can just feEl bad it happened and move on.

Maybe some of the kids noticed how much attention the scandal was getting, so they realized that if they reached out to the outside world, someone would help them.

Does it feel like your love life has gotten a bit stale? Do you suspect that your partner is no longer attracted to you? Why not do what the ancient assyrians did and smear crushed Lobsta Fahts on their cock before applying a thin layer of Iron Dust on your Junk. They won’t be able to resist you.

They aren't allowed to use the internet without an older sibling's supervision, and can only go to preapproved sexless religion sites.

I wonder if they try to sell each other out for goody two shoe points.

Stop right here.

I think a whole lot of what I'm seeing is people lining up to condemn the Duggars and also other Christians for being sanctimonious hypocrites. I think people are getting satisfaction from someone who claims to have found the truth having just as ugly problems as the rest of us.

Now I understand that many people have had the unfortunate experience of people claiming to use Christianity or Christian values as an exterior to justify at attitude of judging others.

I grew up in the south and unfortunately there's an ugly history of people wrapping up hate in a pretty package. With all of that in mind, I can see how people might think "oh well these people believe they are better than us so it's good to see them suffer in their problems". Here's the thing though, it should be clear to anyone with a passing understanding of Christianity to see that if someone is authentically trying to live a Christian life, they are absolutely not the target of your frustrations.

Christianity is about humility, it's about forgiveness, it's about acknowledging first and foremost that I am a sinner, I messed up, I'm unclean and accepting that and knowing that I have no place to cast judgement on others. It's about the togetherness we find in being alone, unworthy, hell even unlovable in the infinite judgement of God yet still loved and by redemption through Christ we find a way to aim for something better.


I think this whole debacle goes to show that no matter how picture perfect your family seems, everyone has sin, everyone messes up, every single one of us stepped in poo poo. Christians are not above that and there is no Christian justification for behaving as if one is holier than thou.

There seems to be so much of other people projecting intentions and stuff onto this family. I think they have all shown shame, humility,and repentance and I don't think anyone is trying to downplay the significance of this.

It's just not helpful in anyway to anyone (especially the poor girls) to make this into a media spectacle and tear the family to pieces as a way to take a jab at Christianity
