A Christian 'Defense' Of Josh Duggar - Western Journalism
"...Yes, Josh Duggar was wrong. Stupid, dead wrong. Wrong. Josh admits his wrong. He and the young girls affected by his actions will live with the repercussions from those incidents for the rest of their lives. It's an incredibly sad story that unfolds far too often in today's society.So what do we do now 15 years later?Is the answer to teenage failure, OFF WITH THEIR HEAD! because of something someone did when they were 14-years-old? Kids are stupid. They're sinful. They do bad things. Criminal things, perverse things even.How do we handle childhood sin? Yes, they should know better, but kids mess up. If we discipline them, they suffer consequences, repent, and turn their life around What then? Do we show them grace and give them another shot at life? Or do we simply throw stones from our glass houses?..." see full article

Update: TLC Pulls 19 Kids And CountingFrom Its Schedule
"...Americans are demanding that TLC pull 19 Kids and Counting from the air, following the scandal that erupted after In Touch magazine released its reportage on sexual abuse allegations against Josh Duggar. According to a police report, the 27-year-old father of three molested five underage girls during his teen years. On Tuesday, the family released a statement on the matter to People magazine. "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," Duggar told the publication. In the police report, the complainants were described as the children of Michelle and Jim Bob, indicating that at least a few of the victims were Josh Duggar's sisters. He apparently fondled the breasts and genitals of the five girls, some of whom were sleeping. ..." see full article

TLC Mulls 19 Kids And Counting Future As Josh Duggar Apologizes For Having Acted Inexcusably
"...It was just seven months ago that TLC managed to wipe some of the ick off its image caused by the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo child molester storyline with a record-setting rating for a super-wholesome 19 Kids And Counting Duggar family wedding episode. Today the network was no comment -ing press inquiries about the future of the latter series when molestation allegations surfaced about one of its regulars.Josh Duggar today resigned from Family Research Council and issued a statement saying he had acted inexcusably and was deeply sorry for my wrongdoing following reports he had been investigated for allegedly fondling the breasts and genitals of underage girls, including some of his sisters, when he was a teenager.In a statement posted on Facebook today, Josh Duggar, now 27,  said that 12 years ago he acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret and that he confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. ..." see full article

The Duggars Arent Hypocrites. Progressives Are.
"...I'm not diminishing Josh Duggar's infractions. As I said, he did something very bad. Horrendous. Disturbing. Evil. These were major sins. But Christians commit major sins sometimes, which is the whole reason why Jesus died on the cross.That doesn't negate or condone anything, but it shows that Christianity does not hide from the sinfulness of man. A Christian understands the depravity of human nature, so when a brother or sister does something depraved, our faith is not shaken.2) Speaking of hypocrites, I'm going to be very frank with you: I simply don't believe most progressives actually care that Josh Duggar touched his sisters when he was 14. I don't believe they are upset about it, or that it offends them, or that they are morally troubled by it. I don't believe them. I just don't.I think they're the real hypocrites...." see full article

TLC Pulls 19 Kids and Counting After Josh Duggar Molestation Claims - TIME
"...The move is no surprise considering that TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo shortly after allegations surfaced about a romantic relationship between series matriarch June Mama June Shannon and a man convicted of child molestation.Like Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, 19 Kids and Counting is one of the cable channel's biggest brands. The show has been on the air since 2008 and is in its 15th season. The profile of the Duggar family had been on the rise in recent years thanks to national magazine covers focused on the marriages and pregnancies of the Duggar children.However, controversy has followed the Duggar clan as well. In November 2014, more than 100,000 people signed a petition calling for TLC to cancel the show after Michelle was featured in a robocall telling Fayetteville, Ark. residents to opposite an anti-discrimination ordinance that many critics deemed as anti-gay...." see full article

Today In Bad Calls: After Josh Duggar Admitted To Sex Abuse, TLC Aired A 19 Kids And Counting Marathon
"...There is precedent for a network erring on the side of, well, not airing shows when one of the stars in question comes under public scrutiny. As the number of rape allegations against Bill Cosby grew exponentially, TV Land pulled reruns of The Cosby Show. And even TLC has been down this road before: after Mama June on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was found to be dating a child molester, the network pulled the plug on the show. It's unclear why TLC wouldn't do the same in the immediate aftermath of these sex abuse revelations, especially considering the brand of the Duggars: extremely conservative family values.Then again, 19 Kids and Counting is a ratings smash and viewership is higher than ever. Last fall's season premiere garnered the highest ratings in the series' history. Paired with the premiere of Little People, Big World, the show carried TLC to the number one spot that night among cable networks in the most highly coveted female demographics. As recently as last week, it was one of the top twenty shows on cable, with nearly 3 million people tuning in. (For context, the number one cable show was Game of Thrones, with about 6.5 million viewers, and the only shows between GoT and 19 Kids were the NBA playoffs and WWE.)..." see full article

​Montel Williams Eviscerates Admitted Molester Josh Duggar on Twitter - The Root (blog)

What's the Difference Between Josh Duggar and Lena Dunham Again? - FrontPage Magazine
"...The difference, aside from the politics, seems to be that Duggar claims to have regretted his actions, while Lena Dunham proudly described how she sexually molested her sister in her autobiography .No one is talking about how often Lena Dunham stumped for progressive liberal candidates. Or whether Girls will be canceled.Would Roman Polansky or Ira Einhorn, the co-founder of Earth Day who brutally murdered his girlfriend, have gotten the kind of liberal support if their politics had been off? We all know the answer.David Letterman, one of the creepiest men on television, is retiring while an adoring media sings his praises. The BBC is still finding ways to punish whistleblowers in the Jimmy Savile case...." see full article
