The following is my reply to a post by a fellow masturblogger and one of my followers (?!), ironically a devout Christian.
His incorrect contentions are that any Good Christian™ should forgive Josh Duggar for molesting
girls HIS FIVE YEAR OLD SISTER, and the entire Duggar family for enabling/abetting said molestation.
I know many Christians are eager to spread the good word, but at what point does it become vanity? I think the whole Duggar family is guilty of it. They are quite literally doing the same thing as the family from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.
My (admittedly minimal) outrage is compounded by the audacity it takes to use his family’s bully pulpit to wax evangelical out of one side of his mouth and suck from the teat of sin with the other. He’s just like the priest who was advising a gay teen to kill himself until he was recently outed on some gay dating site, or any of the scores of proselytizers who have been caught with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar.
I’m about as secular as they come, but I do believe in forgiveness as a personal sanity preservation measure.
Hyper-vocal, hypocritical Men Of God, though? Unforgivable.
The molestation is just the cherry on top of a poop sundae with “reality TV star” and “friend of Rick Santorum and the Palin family” sprinkles.
I’d say the only reasonable course of action is to put him in a rocket and fire him into the sun.
