I'm not giving Josh a pass on what he did, but can you imagine how awful being a 14 year Duggar boy must be? All you can do is Christian Date, which means side-hugs only. And since you're home-schooled the only ladies you see are probably your sisters. And you can't even whack off in the bathroom without one of your 14 siblings knocking on the door saying, "WHY IS THE DOOR LOCKED, JOSH! MOM, JOSH LOCKED THE BATHROOM DOOR AGAIN!"

Some good conspiracy theorizing going on over there

The electronic equipment was probably for the church. It not for multimedia church services, then for promoting the group.

The Duggars were part of an overall movement so they'd be trying to solicit donations and build membership roles. And nothing makes you look more respectable than some nice swipe transitions, a good Creed song in the background, and maybe a filter or two.

man i wish i was a famous christian. i could get away with anything just by not saying anything for a couple of years (just long enough not to get convicted) and then saying "yeah i did this but i said im sorry and i got some vague punishments that totally worked and make me not do it again."

Fortunately it doesn't look like he got away with anything. Let's say authorities did get involved back in 2003, it's not like he'd done jailtime - he was a minor. Heck, it might have worked out better for the Duggars. It'd just be 18 Kids and Counting, or "look at how good we reformed young Josh, let us fix your perverts kids." Except for the damage done to the victims, we should be praising Jesus this came public 12 years later. Suddenly it's not a family dealing with disappointment and drama beyond their control; now it's a decade long cover-up by a family who very loudly warned us against gays abusing children. Suddenly their show and all its spinoff shows are kaput. Just like my one really wants to watch the Cosby show or 7th Heaven anymore, Duggars are media poison. This wouldn't have happened had Josh gotten even a smidge of punishment 12 years ago.

I have 2 questions about the Quiverfulls, and associated fundies. both are yucky.

1) How do they actually have sex? Considering it is sinful, and impure et al, do they do it old school jewish style through a sheet with a hole? Given the level of repression I can't imagine either of them enjoy it at all, and if they do, propably feel bad for enjoying it. I am too much of a gentleman to mention the gaping maw that is a vagina that has birthed 19 babies in so many years.

2) How does one go a-courting? Where do they meet 'suitable' partners? And how do they even ask each other out if, as I assume, they aren't allowed to associate with members of teh opposite sex? So then when the parents have negotiated a suitable match, and you go on your chaperoned pizza date where you aren't allowed to touch, lets say you don't like the other person. Are you allowed to break up? Do the parents have to do it for you?

The whole lifestyle baffles and confounds me. I truly am unable to understand how they function in modern society. I am also deeply saddened and angered by the abusive, cultish, misogynistic, homophobic, insular madness that they brainwash little kids into.

As already mentioned, sex within the relm of marriage is fine.

Dating is awkward because they're doing Christian Dating, which is heavily chaperoned and doesn't allow kissing before marriage. But it's not arranged, although your pool of available suitors is limited. And if you want to break it off, I'm sure you'll get no more pressure than any other child whose parents take an unhealthy interest in your sex life.

Jill Duggar actually met her husband in Napal where he was doing missionary work. And yes, Jim Bob was with her the whole time (they got matching native outfits).

No, her husband was in crazy jim bob's bible study group or something, and daddy set them up. Then he and jill skyped for a while about bible poo poo, and then jim bob took her to meet him in Nepal where he was doing missionary work. So it was still daddy that arranged the whole thing.



JIM BOB

Well, yeah. There has to be some family connection because they only ever hang out with other like-minded families (hence the limited pool of suitors). What I'm getting at, is no matter how backwards the process - it isn't an arranged marriage and the girls have a choice, in as much their limited exposure offers. I'm sure at least one Duggar would love a heavily muscled man with skin like polished ebony, but Michelle will never get to realize that fantasy because the only black guy she ever sees is Herman Cain.

Nessa posted:

My bet is on Michelle being able to pump out 1 or 2 more babies (likely with physical or mental disabilities) before she eventually dies of a pregnancy complication, leaving her oldest unwed daughters to become full time moms instead of part-time moms.

I thought they were done after this last one? If only because they're out of all the good J names and not even Jim Bob wants a boy named Jay-Z.

Josh Duggar did some terrible poo poo, but the fact he was 14 in a loving terrible home environment for a 14 year old boy does come into play here. I think we can say he did some horrible stuff while at the same time saying, "Those people over there? They were worse."

This is harder to pin down, because the Duggars don't like to share the details of how much government welfare they rely on.

Google it, and you get worthless conservative rags like the WSJ and BusinessInsider telling you that they are Real American John Galts of family budgetry.
And some blogs with a (deserved) axe to grind against them telling you that they are monsters.

Local papers doing fluff pieces hint at how much they rely on charitable donations, but we don't have concrete information on how much government aid they use monthly. That's verboten to ask or share.

I can't imagine them getting any government aid. The family makes about 100k per episode and then there's Jim Bob's dealerships and book deals and an exclusive cover deal with People magazine.

What they do get are income tax credits other high earners have phased out of due to the sheer size of their family. They also probably hid assets behind their church. Like any money donated to them would have to be declared as income unless the check was made payable to the Church of Jimothy Roberts.

Maybe they relied on welfare early on, but using the year Jim Bob ran for Senate and Josh figured out girls don't pee out of their vaginas as our baseline, they'd have to had made less than 70k to be below the poverty line. That year, Jim Bob had a personal net worth of 250k.

They're not supposed to be getting government aid anyways, and I even wonder if they have insurance, because fertility treatments aren't loving cheap and neither are the consultations.

Wouldn't Duggar clients be awesome testimonials for a fertility clinic? You could hang banners in your office with the kids you helped convinced like High School championship pennants. They probably get their Clomid and semen centrifuged for free.

There's this idea that the Duggars might somehow bounce back from this, but I'm pretty sure these interviews will be the last time a Duggar gets paid to appear on a nationwide show. Yes, there are some hardcore fans who plead via Facebook for their Jim Bob, but most people, even right-wing Christian Republican people, want nothing to do with this.

I think a lot of people in this thread over-estimate Duggar influence. Sure, they get their pictures taken with GOP candidates, but the Duggars are also trying to get their pictures taken with those candidates because it makes them look like kingmakers or some poo poo. Bill Clinton got his picture taken with Russian prostitutes at an event. Anyone half-way important has a line of people waiting to take selfies at these events. Yet for all their influence, no national candidate has won poo poo with Duggar support and their statewide influence is meh. They barely got an anti-discrimination law overturned in their own hillbilly backyard. These people can't disappear fast enough.

They're giving the story the Big Lie treatment. A propaganda technique perfected by the Third Reich and since used many times by both Republicans and Democrats.

She knows it's a lie. The Duggar know it's a lie. But you repeat it often enough and your supporters will defend your lie until they are blue in the face. The problem is, this narrative doesn't fix the problem. Companies don't care if the police report was leaked or not, they aren't going to advertise on the show anymore. Maybe Jim Bob is trying to retreat as a 'victim' so there's a slim chance he can keep his local influence and maybe one day get another show (190 Grandkids & Counting).

I wonder if the police chief has a slander case against the Duggars. They've gone on national TV saying she broke the law, which can be very harmful to her reputation and future employment opportunities. I know she's retired, but if she ever wanted to get another job and the interviewer Googled her name, it'd be full of venomous accusations about illegal wrongdoing.

Is it odd that I find the oldest daughter's situation worse than the younger molested ones? It's one thing to get married at 18 and go straight from your father's house to your husband's. It's all kinds of stupid, but that's what some women want. But to be 24 and chained to your mother's ever prolapsing uterus sounds more miserable than all the sweaty Joshes waking you up again in the middle of the night.

Then who did Cain marry after he was kicked out into foreign lands? Where did all those people come from?

His younger brothers and sisters that Adam and Eve had after Cain and Able. The same siblings who inexplicably moved away, had children of their own, and built cities while Cain and Able stayed behind.

When everyone has a lifespan of 900+ years it's easier to work out the logic. Cain could have married a younger sister or even a niece over the hill in the land of Nod. The thing is, as far as I can tell people still aged mostly the same. You weren't a child for 100 years - yet Cain apparently had no interest in raising a family of his own until after he killed his brother. And none of the other kids stayed with Adam and Eve, not even to form a little village. So essentially Cain and Able were really immature man-children who never left home.

My guess is he never publicly acknowledges the Ashley Madison leak. It's not like he has a show or position on some morality council to resign from. Jared's indictment took most of the attention yesterday and there's always a chance someone more notable than Josh will appear on the Ashley Madison rolls.

As for his wife, what the gently caress is she going to do. All of the Duggar money is in Jim Bob's pocket, so there's no divorce settlement that's going to support her. She could go out and get a job, but if her parents are anything like Jim Bob and Michelle, she probably has a home school GED.

Homosexuality was probably similar. Back then you needed all the kids your poor tired uterus could pump out and a man pulling his pud out behind a tent, or worse yet getting another guy to pull his pud meant two less men putting babies in bellies.

Other rules were probably like Van Halen's "no brown M&M's" rule. Not important in and of themselves, but meant to make sure you were following all the other decrees.
