so I guess the news is buzzing with the news of the Duggar kid and the molestation allegations. I say allegations, although he confessed and resigned his position as an arrogant, religious, right-winged, I’m better than you are, judgy, executive with some company called: Family Research Counsil. Which, basically, and don’t quote me on this, because I’ve never heard of it until tonight, but it sounds like a company of haters who use Jesus for whatever their given purpose is for “that time”. Oh, today we will protest gay people and abortions. Not realizing their executive director, in the corner office, was a confessed child molester.
In looking at this from a glass half-full perspective, if this Family Research Counsil has learned anything, perhaps they will implement better beck ground checks? I dunno, I’m just trying to keep myself from falling down the “when will they ever learn” rabbit hole. Honestly, is anyone shocked? Can they please cancel this show now? And another high fa-luting Christian falls off the throne… Of course the rents say this happening to theirs family only “strengthened” their faith. Of course it did.,, can I buy you a bag of oranges?
But not one word said about the ‘victims’ of this molestation. The poor girls who were molested. And I am heartbroken for them. Not just then, but NOW. They suffered the abuse then, and NOW they will have to relive it, ready or not, here it is. Prepared to face it or not, it’s back to haunt you – just as it always resurfaces…it doesn’t go away. I KNOW! And my heart goes out to the VICTIMS of this horrible CRIME! (Yes, crime! That the Duggar PARENTS covered up and shoved under the rug, as so many families do. Which, by the way, speaking from my own experience, causes only MORE shame for the victims.) SHAME ON JIM-BOB AND MICHELLE DUGGAR! Shame on the *christians* who are supporting their actions. This is why so many survivors continue to live wish deep-seeded shame and self-blame, and never ever heal. It is not just sinful, reprehensible, and repugnant; it is a crime. And they covered it up. You can ask God for forgiveness and that may “absolve” you of your sins -but that doesn’t change what he did was a crime. And you are hypocrites for judging gay and lesbians for simply being who they are…and also being law-abiding, albeit gay citizens, which is perfectly legal. SHAME ON YOU!
And TLC – The Network that cancelled Honey Boo Boo when the Scandal hit is running a marathon of 19 kids and counting marathon. Stay classy – TLC… Stay classy! Another example of why survivors of sexual abuse do not come forward, and live with mental and physical disabilities from the abuse for the rest of their lives… and TLC is PROMOTING this now. Way to go! TLC!
