He seems...not nice at all

Now that gross admitted child molester Josh Duggar has been outed as a gross hypocrite who molested his own sisters, we thought it might be useful to bring you a quick recap of some of the Duggar family’s noteworthy warnings about the Evils Of Homosexuality, which is a threat to YOUR FAMILY.

Back in December, Josh Duggar led the Family Research Council’s effort to repeal a nondiscrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and after the law was defeated, he explained to FRC leader Tony Perkins why not discriminating against LGBT people puts children in great danger, especially since the law might even allow a man dressed as a lady to use the wrong toilet:

Duggar: We have to make sure that we’re standing up for the right to privacy, and protecting the well-being of women and children.

Perkins: Well, Amen. You know, I must confess that I just can’t separate myself from my role as a husband and a father in this situation, and the idea that a male could self-identify as a woman and could indiscriminately and without restriction go into the women’s bathrooms, where my wife and my two daughters could be, is absolutely, utterly, and forever unacceptable.

Josh’s mom Michelle, who had some direct knowledge of how damaging a heterosexual boy could be, recorded a robocall that was used in the Fayetteville campaign, with dire warnings about how banning LGBT discrimination in housing, commerce, and employment would put “the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children” at risk, and would probably encourage “child predators”:

The text reads a lot differently when you know that she was saying all this about the hypothetical threat of scary trans people, when her own son had actually molested his sisters:

Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men — yes I said men — to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.

I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child.

Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area?

And parents, would you want to let your teenaged son get grabby with your daughters while they sleep, and then, instead of getting the kid into therapy, just send him away to stay with another family for a while? Please add your own cynical punchline about the “safety and innocence of a child” here.

And of course, beyond the direct “gays = pedos” bullshit, there’s the Duggars’ overall opposition to marriage equality, because for kids to grow up right, they need to be in a family with one mommy and one daddy. It would also be awfully nice if none of the kids are secretly diddling their siblings, too, but the main concern is that the parents be straight. Just a few weeks ago, Josh Duggar shared his thoughts on the sanctity of non-sodomite marriage at the March for Marriage, where he explained that only one other country, Brazil, allows same-sex marriage, which had to be news to the other 17 countries that allow it (and hey, Ireland’s voting on it today):

He also explained that if the Supreme Court decides in favor of marriage equality, then freedom was pretty much over:

I think that right now in America there is an agenda to silence people of faith, those who hold dissenting opinion. That’s not what America was founded on. America was founded on respect. Tolerance. And really not discriminating against people based on their religious convictions.

And that’s why he respectfully insists that Christians need to be free to discriminate against gay people — because of respect and tolerance. We guess the Duggars do know a think or two about tolerance — after all, they tolerated their son’s unspeakable behavior, and didn’t even think it was something he needed to see a mental counselor for. Happily, a change of scenery and some prayer made him all better, so he could go forth and keep the world safe for straight families.

  • Rick Hill

    They are only showing consitancy. I mean, if it were a black child, 11 years old, and they stole something then they should be sent to the criminal justice system but the white kids get a complete pass. Bonus forgiveness if Jeebus puts his seal of approval on it. Nice to know they treat he kids the same way they treat the adults.

    • HarryButtle

      He’d only be sent to the criminal justice system if they didn’t shoot him while taking him into custody. Do you have any idea how dangerous 11-year-old black boys can be?

    “there is an agenda to silence” the Duggar daughters, including Josh’s daughter. I am hoping he had to quit his job to spend time with his lawyer concerning an investigation into whether he’s been fondling his own kid. You know he went there.

  • Thaumaturgist

    Somewhere, on an earlier thread, that I cannot find, I suggested giving the kid a break, cuz he was 14 at the time. Someone responded saying that it kept up til he was 17 cuz his dad was protecting his son (but not his daughters).

    I reject the theory that the dad was protecting his son; the dad was protecting his brand.

    I remain convinced that the son was as much a victim as the daughters.

    • marxalot

      You can see how, in an environment where sex and sexuality are not discussed except in the most broad or frightening of terms, where children are taught that their bodies are their enemies, and only their toxic religion can save them, a 14 year old could get pretty screwed up about appropriate sexuality and partners. In the case of the one victim who wasn’t his sister, severe adolescent confusion is a real factor. Sexual behavior with a sibling (particularly as his choice of sleeping victims implies that he knew precisely that what he was doing was wrong), however, is not subject to the confusion defense, particularly as he kept doing it for years.

    • Gristle McThornbody

      I’m convinced that Josh bought into the whole male entitlement theme that is so strong in most fundamentalist religions. Does that make him a victim or just someone who took advantage of his perceived superior status over his sisters? As marxalot says, he knew what he was doing was wrong, but did it anyway.

    • Thaumaturgist

      All I’m saying is that this kid had the same parents his sisters had. Just cuz Mike huckster is defending Josh does not change the fact that the parents set this kid up and enabled this behavior, for reasons of their own, without regard for the interests of any of their kids. I’m not defending the behavior; I’m defending the 14-year-old who was as much a victims as his sisters. This does not make me a Huckabe no matter what you Wonketeers say.

      • Dee Andee

        I guess I’ll say he’s as much of a victim if or when I find out someone sneaked into HIS room on a regular basis for 3 years and felt him up while he was sleeping…

  • Gristle McThornbody

    After reading the breaking story on Wonkette yesterday, as I was channel surfing last night lo and behold! there was a special on the Duggars called “Digging in with the Duggars,” or some such shit, that I felt compelled to rubberneck. The 10 minutes I watched, in disgust and horror, was about their habit of sending one of their kids along on dates as chaperones to their siblings. And there was Josh and his pregnant wife, sitting right next to Daddy Duggar. I wonder which of his lucky sisters got to have him being the judge of what was appropriate for her to do on a date. Kinda surreal and ironic and vomit inducing all at once.

  • To the shock and surprise to absolutely everyone present a seemingly normal lady in our office was almost tearfully defending Duggar today, finally smugly falling back on the ol’ statute of limitations bit. Turns out: since he did it and Jesus personally forgave him years ago Duggar is even more blessed and forgiven than ever!

    Huh. Apparently they were so busy being concerned with the imaginary children suffering imaginary horrors in hypothetical restrooms that they couldn’t spare time to focus on the actual children suffering actual horrors in their actual home. What’s that saying….something about stones and glass houses? Or something about casting the first stone if you’re free of all sin?

  • Bitter Scribe

    I almost hope TLC keeps “19 Kids and Our Shit Doesn’t Stink” on the air, so we can watch the Duggars try to explain this.

    • smr06va

      I hope TLC goes off the air — completely.

      I agree. Don’t let them run and hide. Make them answer some real tough questions IF they want to keep the money river flowing. Make them let the daughters be given help.

  • Razor

    Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children

    “I’m pregnant.”

    • Just Me

      Kinda makes one wonder about what other f’ed up shit is going on in the Duggar home. Obviously Michelle and Dum-Bob can’t supervise ALL the kids ALL the time. One thing is for sure. They will NEVER contact outside help the next time something bad happens, and that’s probably a VERY bad thing.

  • A bit off topic, but I wonder how much the Duggars have to pay their babysitters. When they’re not being molested by the family, I mean.

    • Just Me

      I seriously doubt they employ babysitters at the Duggar home. Instead, the older siblings act as brother-fathers and sister-mothers while Jim Bob and Michelle hump, make new Duggars, and ham it up for the camera. And, what could ever go wrong with leaving the younger girls in the care of a teenager who has been deprived all his life of normal interaction with non-familial females?

      • Michelle Kirkwood

        The humping part is funny as hell. What I’ve always wondered (never seen this show,don’t have cable) is how the heck the Duggars are able to support themselves with all those kids. Do they tell each kid to get jobs as soon as they can walk, or what?

        • Just

          There WERE getting money from the Network, but that’s all over now. I read somewhere that they are open to receiving “gifts” from fans. They sound pretty desperate because maybe Mom and Pop Dugger may have to actually work. Jim Bob might have to take a break from humping Michelle to making some bread. I don’t think college was ever an option since skoolin, reedin, ritin, and ciferin don’t seem to be much of a priority, not when all their is spent on violin lessons, scripture, and looking like the cast of “Village of the Damned.”

  • RomeoDriver

    They seem soooooo concerned about the affect that being molested by their pedophile brother had on their daughters. They threw those girls under the bus to protect a child molester. Aren’t Christians great? Watch them try to insist that their religious freedom is being threatened because the world doesn’t care for child molesters. Incest either.

    The rest of the underage girls in that fine Christian home need to be removed. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and the way he rushed to protect his piece of garbage son, I’d bet the farm Jim Bob enjoys the same hobbies.

    That those girls had to live with their abuser after the fact is simply

  • handyhippie65

    amazing how christians think religious freedom only applies to conservative christians. we must tolerate them, but they don’t have to tolerate anyone else. josh speaks of tolerance for the christians, and in the same thought speaks to how the christians don’t have to tolerate anyone else. can’t have freedom with out tolerance, there josh.
