One would assume that Josh Duggar did nothing worse than shake hands with his sisters and other children while they were sleeping, if he or she were to read the comment section of The Blaze. Sure, the Right rushed to condemn Lena Dunham (rightfully) after she confessed to molesting her sister, but Duggar is a right-wing hero. As a man of God, Duggar’s past liberties with children are a mere “mistake” of his past. Besides, he says God has forgiven him.
Duggar has resigned his position at anti-gay hate group, the Family Research Council, after the news that his family has been covering up his “bad mistakes” from a “dark time” in his “childhood” — inappropriately touching children while they were sleeping when he was in his mid-teens — because he “believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work.” It is, after all, difficult to argue that the LGBT community places children at risk when you have a history of molesting children.
