    Josh Duggar of TV fame "19 kids and counting" TLC show, was just exposed for hiding the truth that he was molesting young girls when he was 14.
    Josh is now married and has like 3 kids.

    some snips from a similar article:

    "According to a new report, a recently uncovered police report shows reality son Josh Duggar was the “alleged offender” in a shocking underage sex abuse probe — and his own father turned him in to authorities!
    Jim Bob Duggar caught Josh, then 17, leaving a young girl’s bedroom and called the authorities after he “learned something inappropriate happened.”
    A source told the tabloid: “I saw and read the report and it clearly stated that Jim Bob brought his son Josh into the Arkansas State Police and spoke to a state trooper about Josh’s involvement in alleged inappropriate touching with a minor.
    According to reports, Josh was suspected of sexual assault in the fourth degree but the state trooper who took Jim Bob’s statement never followed up.

    and more snips

    Now 27, Josh is the executive director of FRCAction, the lobbying arm of the rabidly anti-gay Family Research Council, which works tirelessly to fight against marriage equality, hate-crimes laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

    Duggar and his fellow FRC leaders routinely accuse LGBT people of child molestation, domestic violence and worse.
    Ironically, an FRC spokesman declared in 1999 that “one of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the ‘prophets’ of a new sexual order.”

    "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Josh, 27, tells PEOPLE in a statement. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” ”

    new report says that he is stepping down as Ex. Director of FRC
    aaawwww what a guy

    fuck the Duggars
    Another screwed up family because of religion

    I wanted to add that the "counseling" that Josh speaks of was not by a professional person according to the lame brain mother, who when questioned admitted that.

    Huckabee: That Duggar Boy Made A Mistake, Just Like When My Son Murdered That Dog | Wonkette

    Expressions of wingnut support for Josh Duggar and his molesty past are starting to drip in, now that they’ve remembered that the focus of the narrative is REDEMPTION, because they have Jesus and you don’t. They are saved, you are going to hell. They can fuck kids, and you don’t fuck kids in the first place, but they said sorry to God, so ALL BETTER.

    It's a good summation of the story explains how Josh will not be prosecuted ( statute of limitations). He was discovered in 2002, his parents sent him for non professional counseling, he came back and did it again, they talked to a family friend State Trooper ( now in prison for CP) who didn't report it. The tip came just before the family was going on Ophra and they reported to police.
    Fuckers. I hope the parents get charged.

    Anyone not know they duggars were a cult before this?

    So lets skip down the road of opdeatheaters. You have an ex gov of ark Huck, defending the molester/incest/rapist of his dear friends who took their kid to their personal friend state cop to confess his sins. Said cop is later sent away for cp. I know the Clinton also the exgov of ark ran around a small bit with epstein. I can't find a connection between Huck and epstein, but I may be failing my net skills.

    Said to be because victims wanted it to remain in the past. They are still in the family/cult so yeah.

    Victims names were redacted.

    So... just a question...

    Is it possible for a underage offender to get treatment and recover?
    Is there recovery for sexual offenders?
    are they forever mentally ill and never in recovery

    I for one believe in the recovery model of mental health. It includes however something I have not seen here which is a full admission of guilt and complete acceptance of consequences of actions.

    I hate that the family has not done more for it's daughters... that is just so wrong. I am glad that the names of which ones it was has been left out as the victims deserve privacy (thank god there are so many kids in that family!!! so that they are partially sheltered from identification)

    *rampant speculation* I'm going to bet Janna was one of the victims for a few reasons...
    1. She struggled with her weight (common for victims)
    2. She has struggled with depression and is less interested in boys than her sisters... (again my observation)
    3. Her daddy dearest isn't looking as hard for a courtship for her because he would have to tell that boy about the issue and probably considers her "used goods" which is so far from true that I want to kick something.

    anyway... I thought I would bring a little balance to this thread and break up some of the group think going on. Hopefully one or two of you will be open to considering that sex offender registries for first time offenders and low risk offenders may not be the best way to deal with what is a mental illness.

    But we here in the USA have never dealt well or logically with mental illness... hopefully a few of you can see that I do have a point.

    This is a good example of why there must be sex offender registries. Others people's children have a right to be safe, parents have a right to know if the neighbor boy is a rapist or molester.
    He admits to molesting 5 girls over the course of a few years. 5 victims- he is not a first time offender. Your concern for him is understandable but only if you don't understand about his 5 ( five) victims. His parents did not stop him, he continued to molest even after they found out. Those girls lived in an unsafe home for years and their parents didn't keep them safe or acknowledge they were victimized instead focusing on what they could do for Josh.
    If they had gone to the police he would have had treatment and his victims would have had therapy and his parents would have to face the truth.
    Your question about cure/ treatment/ recovery are good ones. I don't know.
    What is clear- you have fallen into the trap about what is best for that contrite young man. Instead think about what's best for all the other children, the victims and the children who saw their older brother get away with this. How unsafe a childhood that would be.
    The insistence that the victims just want for this go away means the kids and their parents never had the therapy they needed.
    Josh is not the main character, the victims are the main characters. Let's worry about what's best for them.

    One of the better time lines I've seen. Jana wasn't one of his victims according to this.

    I have no problem with the idea of sex offender registries... I do question the logic and ethics of making them "life long". But again I tend to believe in the recovery model of mental health.

    I have no concern for Josh Dugger in fact to quote myself, "I for one believe in the recovery model of mental health. It includes however something I have not seen here which is a full admission of guilt and complete acceptance of consequences of actions."

    I then go on to worry about the Dugger girls and the help that they have no received. No where am I concerned for Josh Duggar I'm sorry that you ever had the impression otherwise.

    I would love to see the whole family in professional counseling!!! I also know that it is not up to you or I to say what his victims want... see not all victims want to talk about it after time has passed and that is their right as victims!!! They should get complete control over talking or not, because they deserve that! Again in this case I'm glad there are so many daughters because it is giving the victims some privacy (though not nearly enough and the media is revictimizing those 4 girls by even revealing that they were his sisters) I feel very strongly about victims rights

    I am concerned about the girls and how this has attacked their privacy as victims!
    I also have thoughts about mental illness and recovery from it, and what that can mean for (and what I hope it means) for people who are able to recover. Josh Dugger isn't one of those people... but it is possible that he could become one of those people... (but I have yet to see the requisite understanding needed on his part)
    I hope that for those who can find healing that they would be allowed to do so, and move on and not be stigmatized by their mental health issues. Does that make more sense? I hope it does!

    Ok thanks that's clearer. Sex offenders registry- I've believed as you do that it shouldn't be life long, right now I think it should. I'm not sure pedophilia is a mental illness and not sure it's treatable, also since he was 14 I'm not even sure he is a pedophile, it depends on the girls ages.
    He is a sexual predator though, he chose victims that were easily accessible, powerless, and continued to sexually assault them after confessing to his dad
    The children have been taught that they have no right to control their own bodies, that their brother was more important than they are. All the children learned that, not just the victims.
    They were taught their parents and their church were more powerful than the police and it was ok to cover up crimes. Actually they are probably confused about it being a crime.
    Can you imagine sending your daughters out into the world with them believing that was OK and something to keep hidden? What kind of man would they choose?
    Tl;dr but this is a horror. He should have been convicted so the rest of the world could keep their children away from him.

  23. A brief snip from a fucked up article:

    The Duggar Girls Learned to Kiss From Jim-Bob and Josh

    5/25/15 2:30pm
    Mark Shrayber

    Last year, Cosmopolitan ran an interview with four of the Duggar daughters during the women’s promotional tour for their book Growing Up Duggar. While the interview was intended to make the girls seem normal and relatable (even though they are four of 19 and participate in a religious sect which blames young girls for molestation), it’s now eerily sinister.
    The interview was brought to our attention by longtime reader and Duggar expert Snacktastic who called that the interview was creepy over a year ago when Jana, Jessa, Jill, and Jinger spoke to Cosmopolitan about getting drunk and being virgins. But now that Josh Duggar’s molestation has come to light, there’s something even more creepy about the Duggars’ answers to questions about love and romance.
    From Cosmopolitan:
    So you’ve never kissed anyone?
    Jessa: Nope — well, I mean my brothers! I think all of us girls have really purposed to save our first kiss for our wedding day.
    Okay, not that weird. Lots of people kiss their brothers. But this question is just a lead-up to this series of Qs.
    Have you ever been curious about what it’s like?
    Jessa: I can’t say I haven’t been, but it’s the anticipation, the suspense! It’s like Christmas morning, you know? Open this special package so it’ll be fun!
    Are you going to ask anyone for advice?
    Jessa: I’m sure I’ll be getting advice from people who are good kissers!
    Like who?
    Jessa: My parents are pretty good kissers! They very much like to show their kiss in public places, so they kiss in front of us all the time. [And I’d ask] my oldest brother. He’s been married for five years. And friends and people around me who I look up to. But I don’t think it’s too hard to figure out though.
    Considering that it’s clear that people in the Duggars’ community knew about Josh Duggar’s molestation charges, it’s incredibly painful to read about Jessa discussing the fact that her oldest brother is a good kisser, especially if she’s pretending that her brother hasn’t hurt her sisters or has been brain-washed into believing that it wasn’t his fault.

    And while Jessa’s been ignoring the controversy on social media, her father-in-law has spoken out in support of Josh Duggar, stating that anyone who had the chance to would have also molested themselves some girls.

    Duggar Dad's Political Platform: Incest Should Be Punishable by Death
    "But what does Jim Bob think of his own response to his son’s familial abuse? In a brief statement to People, Jim Bob and Michelle said last week that “that dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before.” Maybe that’s because Jim Bob publicly stated during his 2002 campaign for U.S. Senate that he thinks incest should be punishable by death."
    Oh yah? Interesting!

    I know this has been mentioned, but he needs to be filed in the Sex Offenders list and why isn't he going to be listed?
    I guess one has to be convicted first? Or not?
    It's obvious his own sisters do not have an ounce of brains in their fanatic Christian ravished brains.
    I was delighted to see so many companies pull their advertising, but more need to follow suit.

    The girls are victims in a patriarchal cult. My heart breaks for them. My hope is that they break away from Qiverfull and speak out.

    this person does not think that the Duggars are in Quiverfull:

    Jim Bob Duggar: Quiverfull Cult Leader, Shameless Self-Promoter or Spreading the Word

    "I've never truly believed they had anything officially to do with the Quiverfull movement. I think because they have the quote from the Bible on their website people assume that they do. A bible quote and a membership in a movement do not two things make. For one thing, Jim Bob is way way way too vocal, too public, and too ON TELEVISION for anything as private as a movement like that. There's a reason why the show "Secret Lives of Women" did a show on Quiverfull--they don't openly talk about their movement. Why? I have no idea. You'd have to ask the producers of "Secret Lives of Women."

    Although this family is on TV and speaking about it.
    In this report from 2010, they say "there are 10,000 Quiverfull families and that number is growing"

    Overpopulating the world at it's best
