The wife of a Texas pastor took to a noted atheist’s Facebook page to defend Josh Duggar and blame his victims.

Carrie Hurd, the wife of Texas pastor Patrick Hurd, made the controversial comments Saturday on the Facebook page of Vyckie Garrison, who was named the 2014 Atheist of the Year by American Atheists. Garrison posted an interview she gave that was critical of the Christian family’s mentality towards sex which she said can easily lead to abuse because they are not properly educated on the topic or allowed to understand their own sexuality.

“The consequence of this abuse is, to them, a positive – it leads them to be saved,” Garrison wrote on her Facebook page. “To them, the abuse is something that has eternal consequences of great benefit and glory to God. They’re minimizing the harm and damage that’s been done to those girls, and minimizing the guilt that comes from the crime that Josh committed, because of that spiritual benefit.”

But Carrie Hurd took exception to Garrison’s comments and wrote the female victims, some of whom were reportedly assaulted in their sleep, should also be held accountable.

“You women want parity in the board room and you want equal wages all the way up the ladder, but when it comes to taking responsibility and being equal in other areas, it is always the man’s fault or responsibility. How many women bait, hit first, but are seldom arrested for abuse………….?” Carrie Hurd wrote. “When I was a kid, it was often called “playing doctor”, there were just as many girls initiating this kind of behavior as boys. Most of those never went on to perp horrible things.”

    These idiots are going down screaming as the church is dying due to their stupidity and perversion of the Bible.

    At age 5 it’s playing doctor.
    At age 14, it’s sexual assault.

    • Gindy51 May 25th, 2015 at 2:16 pm

      And at age 17 it is something even worse. This god nugget was a serial sexual abuser of young females and does anyone really think he has stopped?

  3. Larry Schmitt May 25th, 2015 at 12:51 pm

    It’s incredible the lengths these people will go to to justify criminal acts of fellow “Christians” but also to find new victims to blame. I thought we had gotten past the blaming of victims of rape and abuse.

    • whatthe46 May 25th, 2015 at 1:00 pm

      pretty damn sad isn’t it?

    • Sheep O'Doom May 25th, 2015 at 2:37 pm

      These folks need to rename their religion as NOTHING they believe is what Christ taught.

  4. Chris May 25th, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    I’m trying to give this person the benefit of a doubt. She’s assuming innocence on the part of this young man, especially since he’s been in her living room (via TV) and she identifies with his tribe. She may have even (probably) played doctor as a child.

    But I suspect if it were another 14 year old young man who was the wrong color, religion and party, she’d be in the front row, screaming for the death penalty.

    That’s the problem with some people: no empathy, no ability to put themselves in another’s shoes. And it’s the primary problem with the Republican Party.

    • Chinese Democracy May 25th, 2015 at 5:33 pm

      thats why I dont bowl …. I dont want to put myself in another mans shoes

    • Morgan Sheridan May 25th, 2015 at 11:23 pm

      And the precedent has already been long established.

  5. Lisa Fraleigh May 25th, 2015 at 1:25 pm

    Waiting until someone is asleep and then fondling their breasts and sticking things into their vagina is NOT playing doctor. Yeesh! Not sure what world YOU live in, but ANY 17 year old who continued this behavior from 14 until 17 should NOT be considered a babysitter. As for “you females”, thanks. I prefer being female. How about you stop blaming everything on feminism? It’s not feminism’s fault that women don’t like you. It’s you, not us.

    • Sheep O'Doom May 25th, 2015 at 2:35 pm

      If it’s not feminism its Liberalism, Democrats, or Obama.

        I am surprised that no one on the far Right has blamed Josh Duggar’s crimes on Obama (yet).

  6. tpartynitwit May 25th, 2015 at 1:56 pm

    Is Rush Limbaugh just playing Doctor on his many little blue pill fueled visits to the Dominican Republic?

  7. Gindy51 May 25th, 2015 at 2:15 pm

    You can bet if Josh were black or a Muslim the whole cultist lot of them wouldn’t be so quick to forgive and forget….

    • BigDumbWhiteGuy May 25th, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      Oh, if Josh were Muslim it would be all “Well, it’s not surprising because Mohammed was one too.”

  8. Sheep O'Doom May 25th, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    Not sure what religion Mrs Hurd follows but MY bible says her beliefs are sins.

  9. No way out May 25th, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    Aiding and abetting!Arrest convict and throw her in a cell known for rampant lesbian dominatrix’s

  10. anothertoothpick May 25th, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    Maybe Bill Cosby should try that defense.

  11. F_cons May 25th, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Hey Pastor’s wife, I have a sharp stick I would like to play doctor with you, ok?

  12. Chinese Democracy May 25th, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    bzzzzt wrong! some of the little girls where asleep. Can’t give consent while sleeping. blame back on molester. Try again ninny pants

    • jasperjava May 25th, 2015 at 6:58 pm

      Well, if those Jezebel toddlers hadn’t been so sexually provocative while they were sleeping, this wouldn’t have happened to this fine blameless Christian white boy.

      • Bunya May 26th, 2015 at 2:07 pm

        That’s right! Because of Eve, the first female that god created, all females are born as shameless hussies, hell bent on tempting the poor, unsuspecting males into sin!

    • whatthe46 May 25th, 2015 at 7:00 pm

      tmz is reporting that tlc is planning on resuming the show, but fire josh. greed has no shame. and it’s a punch in the gut to his victims.

      • RavenSkye Walden May 26th, 2015 at 4:31 am

        That’s ok.. I hope to be text bombing links and images supporting and advocating for children of sex abuse. Let the advertisers come in!

    • RavenSkye Walden May 26th, 2015 at 4:30 am

      All the girls had woken up during some of their abuses by Josh, they werent always asleep

      • Chinese Democracy May 26th, 2015 at 11:40 am

    Well THAT was inevitable…

  14. Angelo_Frank May 25th, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    This is why young people are leaving the Christian religion. They realize it’s not only bunk but it’s used to intimidate and control women.

  15. Morgan Sheridan May 25th, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    Does she not understand that “playing doctor” is a development stage that one should be over and done with by the age of 8? When a 14 year old eldest child is “playing doctor” with younger sibings, it has become an entirely different behavior and perversion.

  16. granpa.usthai May 26th, 2015 at 12:06 am

    Must be missing that TAX FREE $$$…

    one way to know for sure if the perverted child molester/rapist is guilty is to boil him alive in ‘virgin’ olive oil.

  18. RavenSkye Walden May 26th, 2015 at 4:29 am

    So many defending the sexual assaults of 3 years and the parents who covered the crime for 16 months. The police officer who is a mandatory reporter didn’t file the report as he ws supposed to by law.

    Anyone that supports the Duggars in this, support child sexual assault.

  19. Saint_Augustine May 26th, 2015 at 6:21 am

    I haven’t read Josh’s record, the one that was destroyed. I would like to know if Josh’s “playing doctor examinations” were only given to his female siblings?

    • allison1050 May 26th, 2015 at 8:54 am

      That’s what people have said at least.

    • Cat L May 27th, 2015 at 3:00 pm

      It’s my understanding there were neighbor children, too. The police report may have been destroyed by a Huckabee owned judge, but it’s still out there on the net.

  20. OldLefty May 26th, 2015 at 7:51 am

    Is this a classic case of ‘Their dogma has been mugged by their Karma’?

    That being said, I will give some sympathy to both sides when it comes to these scandals;

    Does the tendency of everyone outside to blame the failure of the entire tribe and hence the value system of the entire tribe for the actions of one transgressor cause the members of the tribe to circle the wagon and to make excuses for a transgressor, often blaming the victim, instead of simply renouncing and rejecting the actions, or is it the converse?

    That the tribe’s first response is always to circle the wagons and make excuses for a transgressor, often blaming the victim, instead of simply renouncing and rejecting the actions which leads to the response whereby everyone outside the tribe to blames the failure of the entire tribe and hence the value system of the entire tribe for the actions of one transgressor?

  21. mywordisfinal May 26th, 2015 at 2:35 pm

    Its called playing doctor when the girls aren’t sleep. Also when they’re not your sisters.

    • jasperjava May 26th, 2015 at 2:39 pm

      …and what kind of sick creepy 14-17 year old boy “plays doctor” with younger girls? He would have to be mentally retarded.

      Which is what right-wing fundamentalist “Christianity” does to you, I suppose.

      • mywordisfinal May 26th, 2015 at 2:42 pm

        I agree.

  22. Gina May 26th, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    That’s abuse and incest.

  23. William May 26th, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    Hey Josh.
    you’re welcome.
