Having known more than enough insane Christians, here are my predictions:

His wife accepts his apologies and prays about it a lot until God confirms that she should definitely continue to submit to her husband. Everyone close to her will also pressure her to stay with him and forgive him.
The two of them will go to Christian marriage counseling for a few years and he'll be "cured" and "a better Christian"
He'll talk about his past sins with everyone all the time. Probably speak about it to his church congregation, youth groups, bible studies, quiverfull groups, etc.
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.

Another good example of this is white racists absolutely loving it when black people with them. In recent news this was the few black people showing up (in support) at confederate flag rallies. Or Bill Cosby. They defended him the same way.

Kirk's too obsessively devoted to cheat. Hell he won't kiss an actress in any movie he does. It's always his wife in a wig and/or silhouetted.

People who act like that are usually doing it in response to some hosed up thing from their past. Like how the Duggars went insane and had 20 babies after Michelle's birth control miscarriage.

Realistically, as a black man in the Bible Belt he was probably condemned to this circumstance from the start, sex-offender status or no.

I think it's actually more likely if you don't live in the bible belt.

Josh is probably just being treated in isolation. His presence would attract unwanted media attention (as it already has) and could be seen as a distraction to the other patients.

If the Duggars have been supporting this place for years then I'm sure they can get special treatment in return.

Is it normal to take all of your possessions with you when you move to another country?

I feel like it isn't.

Apologism for child molestation on the other hand

They kinda backtrack all of that in the next blog post.

quote:

It distresses me to say that Josh Duggar’s greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God. He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise. With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil. While proudly saying things like, “Our family is like the epitome of conservative values”, he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs. He took a job at the Family Research Council that exists to promote the traditional family, all the while undermining his own family by violating his marriage covenant. He flourished in the fame of his family and the success of their television show, all the while betraying their trust and Christian values. The thing that is so hurtful is that he was a loud voice endorsing Christian ethics and he has been shown to be a fraud. I am profoundly grieved that he attained such a platform only to bring shame on God’s holy name and the Christian faith. After hearing of Josh’s scandal when he was a teenager, I publicly stated that Josh appeared to be a changed man, was walking above reproach, and living out the faith that he professed. I stood in solidarity, encouraging him to use the scandal to build humility and grace. Sadly, he had deceived us all. The name of God has been blasphemed and God is jealous for his name.

To the person reading this, I want to caution you. Josh was a pretender.

I guess this is pretty scathing coming from someone who won't say bad words.

The Duggars are idiots, but the Dillons are almost worse.

No, Dillon, not Dillard. A Duggar got with a Dillard and another Duggar was with a Dillon but the Dillon turns out wasn't with the Duggar.

I wonder if TLC realizes that one of the most common threads between its shows is molestation.
