Even if he's not actually gay it's possible she realized "you have no education, no skills, and your family's gravy train is over. How are we supposed to make a living?"

But hey, congrats on using your freak show family to destroy innocent lives and then write off your awful choices as God's will.

That or she could see the inevitable future where he's always "out ministering" and eventually coming home from being out with the ten kids to find him in bed with two black dudes or something.

I wonder if they will talk about If Abused Was Not At Fault




Is there any guilt

Why did God let it happen

If Abused Was Not At Fault!

Jesus tap dancing Christ, that's it, get the pitchforks and torches.

I would give so much to be able to witness the convo that's happening at the Duggar compound right now especially between Josh and Anna.

Honestly I don't think this would have even that big of a deal if it came out before the sister molesting, most of the reason people are getting a laugh about this now is because it's just kicking him when he is already down for being a sick gently caress and people love kicking people when their down even if they aren't complete assholes no one feels the least bit of empathy for because their life got ruined.

It doesn't hurt that the fact that like a week before this, the clan got caught basically begging people to give them money not because they were broke, but to continue living the lifestyle they got used to. So it's a nice knocking a group that openly dictated a moral standard they couldn't live up to down a peg. More than likely there's other skeletons in the Duggar closet aside from Josh. They probably just nipped those in the bud a lot quicker and cleaner since Josh got caught red handed back in the day. (Horrible pun not intended I swear )

Fair enough, but I wonder how much disdain and resentment can build up in a person before they start either coughing up blood or randomly lashing out. If it's the latter you can bet your rear end we'll see an article about one of the women (because who else would it be) being "sent away on mission/retreat."

i wonder of there's a special, super secret word that means "everyone bite down on the cyanide pill", like how "nike" means "there's some cleavage and maybe an ankle around kids, don't look at it!!!!"

"I'm sorry for everything I put you all through because of my beliefs."

Gotta make sure it's something you'd never say on accident, in passing, or more than once. Similar to "Gosh that Italian family the next table over sure is quiet."

Edit: nvm it'd probably be "I love and support Josiah no matter who he brings home."

Josh is the worst poster boy Christianity ever had, but he's still above the rest of us sinners. Which is funny because he's sinned far more than my godless rear end could in 10 lifetimes.

Fitzy Fitz posted:

He'll show up again in the media or the Conservative Christian movement as soon as possible, because he's not just gonna get a regular job or anything.
His new image will be all about the mistakes he made and how that's made him not only a better person, but a better authority on how sinful gays are (because he sinned too, so he gets it, right?)

That last one is the big one. In these circles anyone can be a good guy again as long as he's spouting the bigotry that the rest of them want to hear.

Oh, and he'll never actually be cured and will inevitably relapse into porn and affairs.

Pretty much this. It's how Mike Huckabee or one of your friends/relatives on facebook can unironically state how homogays are no better than pedophiles and pedophiles should all be killed in one moment, and then flip to "He was young, he recognized his mistake, prayed hard and is now a better person for it!" the next, all while keeping a straight.

You can also bet your rear end these people would burn Anna at the stake if it was her on the AM website. That or she'd just "go away" like one of the girls he molested.

It's pretty Par for the course in terms of fundie horribleness; of course she would stick with him. Leaving him, or holding him entirely responsible for his actions would require self worth would mean that you failed in your position as wife of the household and everyone knows your value is directly tied to your position in the household. So of course she must've done something wrong to enable his urges that he can't control by the way.

The weird thing is, the Duggar women have certain privileges that the men don't. When the family comes across a scantily clad lady, the women give a signal to let the men know to avert their eyes. If they use the internet, the children and men are limited to less than 100 pre-screened websites. That includes Jim Bob. Only Michelle and the older daughters have the password for open internet access.

Well duh everyone knows that women don't have any sexual urges, the only urge they feel is the urge to raise a family!

I'm sure there's probably some tell all that he gives about how before he got saved it was all drugs and sex and devil worship, meaning he got drunk at a party once and made out with a socialite and now represses it to the point where he won't kiss anyone he isn't married to.

What is it about fundementalists that makes them so blind to the most obvious innuendo?

I think it has to do with the fact that their belief system is literal. Much like the guy on the house of science, space, and technology when he said "only God could destroy the earth when he so chooses." It's not hyperbole claiming that human interaction with the planet is small, it's stated as matter of fact. There's probably a sizable correlation between fundamentalist beliefs and lack of abstract thinking.

I never understand the fixation on homosexuality being a major in sin. Its not even one of the "7 Deadly Sins". If they really try they could try to say lust, but that falls flat on its face considering they try to prevent same sex marriage. Even then, why is that an issue while selling sex on tv isn't? Not to mention gluttony, greed and envy seem to be true American values rather then major sins.

Men putting their penis in another man's butt is curiously fascinating disgusting!

Serious answer, when your repressed to the point that you start jizzing at the sight of a nipple you tend to think any differences in lifestyle is just an excuse to gently caress.

If these people handwaved away literal child rape why would they give two shits about consensual sex between two (or more) adults?

You've committed the sin of thinking raping female children is worse than same sex intercourse for them. It's ok we all made that mistake when we thought they were somewhat reasonable.

I don't know if you're giving them too much credit or not enough, but fundies will most definitely stop following people who get their hands caught in the cookie jar. Baker lost his flock, Haggart is a footnote now, and Swaggart got defrocked. Sure, these guys still have some followers, but it's a fraction of their peak audiences.

Usually those that leave tend to be "moderates", on the fence, or looking for a miracle, and seemingly after the inevitable gay prostitute scandal. For instance Peter Popoff is still fleecing people now though with debt relief miracle prayers.

Speaking of alliances and fickle picking I wonder how many other quiverfulls that married into the Duggar clan are cursing the sky once the gravy train crashed and burned. Now that Jim Bob found himself in the position of Walder Frey, is he gonna have to start paying the bride/groom's weight in silver?

For some reasons, nutty Evangelicals really, really don't like Catholics, and think the Church is satan himself.

Living in the south among the baptists and gone to a Catholic college, there's a couple reasons.

Some believe the Catholics are idol worshippers/pseudo-polytheists what with the various saints and prayers to Mary. (Fun thing, ask a Catholic and a non-Catholic what the Immaculate Conception refers to. You might get different answers.)

Along with the idolatry, the other reason is the papacy, the fact that the big authority head is an old dude in a funny white hat in a foreign land upsets Christian nationalists to no end; along with the idea that said old dude speaks for god, meanwhile the irony that every politician claims to have talked to God personally flies right over their heads.

The last reason usually involves the fact that some Catholics have latched onto some forms of social justice, and have gone "maybe there's something to this whole the Earth revolves around the Sun idea." meaning they bucked from God's infallible truth.

Let's not forget that after the kiddy fiddling but before the Ashley Madison stuff that the Duggars caught a bit of ire by going onto youtube basically panhandling claiming the donations were needed for production costs for their Web videos, and people were pointing out the production costs were at best whatever you paid for the camera and maybe editing software.
