Perkins: Duggar Tarnished ‘Family Values’ Movement
Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council says Josh Duggar, who worked for the group, has tarnished his movement.
Perkins went on to add: “His deceitful behavior harms his family, his friends, his former coworkers, and the cause he has publicly espoused. Those of us who advocate for family values in the public square are held to a higher standard, and Josh’s failures serve as a painful reminder of the destructive effects of not living with integrity. We are praying for the family.”
The FRC hired Duggar be the face of the pro-family, anti-LGBT organization, trading in on his celebrity as the eldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, stars of the popular 19 Kids and Counting television show.
In his capacity as a vice president with the FRC, Josh Duggar was at the forefront of the organization’s assault on same-sex marriage, with Duggar denouncing same-sex unions as an “attack” on the family, children, and “Christian values.”
