While Jessa Seewald (Duggar)’s father-in-law may feel that quite literally anyone would molest children if presented with an absence of consequences and ample opportunity, Josh’s wife Anna’s family is not quite so receptive to some of his hobbies, which include molesting children, demonizing gays, molesting children, cheating on his wife, having sex with prostitutes and molesting children. According to People magazine, after Duggar blamed his philandering ways on a pornography addiction, his brother-in-law weighed in.
In response to Jessa’s post of a Bible verse indicating that her brother and molester would be forgiven yet again thanks to magic, Josh’s brother-in-law Daniel Keller spoke his piece. “You have to confess and forsake your sin to have mercy,” he replied. “Not sin confess and repeat.”
The conversation got heated very quickly when some True Believers attempted to defend Josh Duggar, with Keller reminding Christians to actually read their Bible “instead of beating people over the head with it.”:
“I have told her I would pay for her to move out here w me and pay for her kidz. I don’t think josh will see that this is a big deal and be truly broken till that happens,” he later adds. “I beat my life on the fact that josh has not co.e to true brokenness yet.” He explained that his parents are “preaching stay w him,” but says that their true concern is with what their daughter getting divorced will do to their image among their fellow “Christians.”
Though some chose to attack Keller for caring about his sister, many commenters were supportive — which earned his thanks. “I won’t stop trying to get that pig out of our family,” Keller promised.
Keller later added that he doesn’t “give a shit” about “that pig [Anna] calls her husband”:
“But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, and we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin,” Jessa Duggar’s post reads. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
While Keller did not specifically mention Josh’s molestation of five children, four of whom were his sisters and one of whom was just five years old, it is clear that the veritable pile of horribleness that is Joshua Duggar has finally gotten to him.
As for Anna, it seems unlikely she will leave her husband. Shortly after Josh’s multiple Ashley Madison accounts and frequent contact with people who exchange sex for money came to light, she partly blamed herself for her hubby’s “porn addiction” and cheating. In a statement, Josh called himself the “biggest hypocrite ever” after he was caught being somehow an even bigger slimeball than we already knew him to be.
“I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him,” Josh wrote, adding that he “brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.”
“The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings,” he concluded. “As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.”
Will Anna Duggar finally leave the “pig?” Only time will tell — but until then, it is a virtual certainty that we can expect a lot more oinking from Josh.
