Josh Duggar, the star of the hit TLC reality show ’19 Kids and Counting’ has confessed to molesting female children, including his sisters, when he was a teenager. Of course, his confession came only after the story has been going viral. So now, he’s resigning from the Family Research Council, the entity that tells us how…

“God has forgiven me…”…no she hasn’t.
dave-dr-gonzo May 22nd, 2015 at 8:57 am
She wants you to remove those offending gonads. And “Little Josh” also, for good measure! Cthultha aqbar!
CHOCOL8MILK May 22nd, 2015 at 7:43 am
LOL the old “God forgiveness” ploy. Most of us saw this one coming.
CHOCOL8MILK May 22nd, 2015 at 7:46 am
Honestly, this stupid God B.S. is ruining our country, the United States. Idiots like this continue to be out and about. So sickening.
Hirightnow May 22nd, 2015 at 8:26 am
Well, they’re trying…I mean, the girls WERE too young to have children…
(I’ll leave now)
Hirightnow May 22nd, 2015 at 8:25 am
God may well have forgiven you, Josh.
But man hasn’t
“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”, and all of that.

The Invisible Sky Being is now OK with his Polanskying. How reassuring.

Learned behaviour from his dad?…
Anomaly 100 May 22nd, 2015 at 9:13 am
He follows the book of Leviticus when it comes to the gays, so shouldn’t he be put to death?
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 9:35 am
And he was probably wearing mixed fibers at the time, which is worse in their eyes.

God has forgiven me. Well, that makes it all good, doesn’t it? Isn’t that special?
EnuffBull May 22nd, 2015 at 9:42 am
I would like to see that in writing, with God’s signature. And not one of those robo-pen writing robots, dadgummit! God must have an expensive, executive fountain pen.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 9:48 am
In the movie, he writes with fire. Remember when Moses picked up the Ten Commandments?
EnuffBull May 22nd, 2015 at 10:03 am
Bic pen… Bic lighter… same diff! 🙂
William May 22nd, 2015 at 10:50 am
It was actually 15 commandments.

Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 11:13 am
I was thinking of a different movie. i wonder what the other 5 commandments were. Oy! You can always count on Mel.
Dwendt44 May 22nd, 2015 at 12:05 pm
Don’t rape may have been one of those 15. Don’t fondle your sister wasn’t I don’t think.

Gotta love Mel Brooks~!
William May 22nd, 2015 at 10:47 am
Let me know if he posts the formal pardon. I want to compare signatures.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 11:14 am
Signed by Chuck Heston, no doubt, God’s BFF.
Alan May 22nd, 2015 at 5:20 pm
I thought “signed copy” meant the person who wrote the book. 🙂
Dwendt44 May 22nd, 2015 at 7:52 pm
Hence the absurdity.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 8:38 pm
God was busy that day, so since Chuck knows him personally, he stood in for him.
William May 22nd, 2015 at 11:01 am
The punishment should fit the crime, and lead to eternal dangnation.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 11:16 am
So how do they deal with someone who’s been dead for hundreds of years, and is nothing but a little dust? He can be made whole, but someone with crushed nuts can’t? Doesn’t sound like an all-powerful god to me.
Foundryman May 22nd, 2015 at 11:43 am
It seems odd God would tell him he forgives him and not say anything to anyone else. How do we know God forgives him? Where is it written? What chapter and verse?
These holy roller child molesting perverts are the lowest of low lifes.
Dwendt44 May 22nd, 2015 at 12:02 pm
Which god is he talking about? Mankind has created over 3000 gods since the dawn of history.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 12:15 pm
When people claim that god is talking to them, they’re really only talking to themselves. And of course they hear what they want to hear.
William May 22nd, 2015 at 11:54 am
I’ve got a busy meme making week ahead of me.
William May 22nd, 2015 at 11:55 am
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 12:13 pm
Either one of those would make a good dart board.
William May 22nd, 2015 at 12:36 pm
Oh so many, so little time.
StoneyCurtisll May 22nd, 2015 at 9:53 pm
Is that Josh dugger?..
Or Chaz Bono?
Bunya May 23rd, 2015 at 7:50 pm
He looks like a younger version of Marcus Bachmann.
StoneyCurtisll May 22nd, 2015 at 9:50 pm
Josh Bugger is every where..

“Our family is like the epitome of conservative values.” — Josh Duggar, March 17, 2012
Bunya May 22nd, 2015 at 7:58 pm
Absolutely! And other morally righteous conservatives include:
David “Diaperman” Vitter,
Mark “Appalachian trail” Sanford,
Larry “wide stance” Craig – and everybody’s favorite,
Newt “family values guy” Gingrich
Am I forgetting anybody?
pinballsdoll May 22nd, 2015 at 12:48 pm
disgusting, hypocritical piece of crap
Bunya May 22nd, 2015 at 1:56 pm
He’d make a great republican political candidate. His god forgave him, so everything’s okay. Too bad our judicial system doesn’t accept his god’s “forgiveness” as restitution for such disgusting crimes. And he thinks homosexuality is a sin? What an a-hole. The whole family is scum.
Their morally corrupt show should be cancelled immediately. Miserable bags o’ puke.
FatRat May 22nd, 2015 at 2:38 pm
Hmmmm, got a pardon from Jesus. That sounds reasonable. (snark)
I don’t care what they may say, I don’t care what they may do
I don’t care what they may say, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright
(Jesus is Just Alright – Doobie Brothers)
F_cons May 22nd, 2015 at 3:52 pm
So Josh, if I rape you with a tree stump, till it comes out of your “lips”, your god will forgive me for that? Good to know, please come visit…
Alan May 22nd, 2015 at 5:20 pm
Don’t you people think God is a forgiving God?
mea_mark May 22nd, 2015 at 6:09 pm
The process of forgiveness can be complicated. Forgiveness may not always seem like forgiveness. God is hard to define and near impossible to fully understand. Is God Forgiving? — Do we know what God’s forgiveness looks like, or what it would encompass?
God, the universe, is forgiving. Do we understand that forgiveness and how it manifest in the world, very doubtful. We do learn though and therein lies hope.
Mainah May 22nd, 2015 at 6:18 pm
Yes God is. For me, to assume God forgave you when you didn’t pay for your “transgressions ” is hubris. To assume that one knows that God has given his grace before judgement is inappropriate. I grew up Catholic but sought out many faiths for my own understanding. It isn’t so much that he says it but the fact that he condemns other people while claiming grace for his own sin.
Alan May 22nd, 2015 at 7:06 pm
Maybe God told him he was forgiven, but we can’t know what God is thinking, can we?
Mainah May 22nd, 2015 at 7:12 pm
Just like I can’t know what you’re thinking …
mea_mark May 22nd, 2015 at 7:19 pm
I think he has a few minutes to kill and decided to pop in and see what was going on and say a little something. Maybe just hoping he might catch some inspiration that he can use on his show.
Mainah May 22nd, 2015 at 7:39 pm
Regardless, my point would be that I can’t presume to “know” what God or anyone’s thinking. I truly think God spoke to many people. Even Jesus said that there are many rooms in my Father’s house. I go now, to prepare a room for us. This is one reason why I believe that God is loving. His house has many rooms.
Jake May 23rd, 2015 at 7:53 pm
So is Duggar going to get a room adjoining one occupied by little girls then? Maybe Rush Limbaugh will get one too.
Mainah May 24th, 2015 at 7:20 am
Again, I can not say that I know who gets grace and who doesn’t. I am a woman of faith. My belief or interpretation of Jesus saying God’s house has many rooms was that there was a place for all who receive grace. It’s inclusive of all people’s of many cultures. Just like those who think “Allah” is some different God when, in fact, it’s just a different word for God. People worship in many ways. My pagan friends believe the Spirit is within everything. My First Nation’s friends believe God to be The Great White Spirit. That’s what I mean by God’s house has many rooms. Hope that clears that up for you.
mea_mark May 22nd, 2015 at 7:16 pm
Maybe and maybe, with the right drugs, but can we can we recall and share if we do know what God is thinking, if only briefly? Language would probably limit things greatly. Odds are God didn’t tell him a damn thing and he is making stuff up because that is what he thinks he is supposed to do. Sad really.
Larry Schmitt May 22nd, 2015 at 8:46 pm
I have serious doubts he’s forgiving when the only thing they’re sorry about is that they were caught.
Dwendt44 May 22nd, 2015 at 7:53 pm
The arrogance that assumes ‘I’ve been forgiven’ by a god that may not even exist is what is amazing to me.
Mainah May 22nd, 2015 at 8:28 pm
I can agree on the arrogance of his assumption but I can not be objective on the “may not exist” part, for I have a subjective view on the matter.
Bunya May 22nd, 2015 at 7:47 pm
Do these people actually think that playing the “God has forgiven me” religious card, is gonna work all the time? I think not. Pretty soon their luck is gonna run out, and I think this is just the start of the bodies that will tumble out of the Duggar closet.
Sure, God is forgiving, but I think people like the Duggar clan is taking advantage of His forgiving nature.
StoneyCurtisll May 22nd, 2015 at 9:42 pm
Come on Alan..
The imaginary “god” forgives those who believe in the imaginary…
cecilia May 23rd, 2015 at 9:34 pm
First, prove god exists
Jake May 23rd, 2015 at 11:17 am
This “forgiving” god sure is a busy guy – by my reckoning he has forgiven the cathoilics for the crusades, the inquisition, the holocaust and the mass rape of little boys. Now he is also forgiving the evangelicals for their crooked ponzi schemes bilking the elderly and feeble-minded out of millions and for their turning the message of his imaginary son into a gigantic pyramid scheme with Pat Robertson, Mike Huckabee, Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker and Billy Graham right at the top.
Chris May 23rd, 2015 at 8:53 pm
According to Leviticus, Josh Duggar should be publicly removed from his family.
Wonder what Super Saint Huckabee has to say about this since he invokes Leviticus seemingly every day.
