Sad saga continues after his reality TV family's 2015 implosion due to his behavior.

US marshals picked him up .

He and wife just announced last week that baby number 7 is on the way.

His parents created that monster. Their bizarre take on Christianity suppressed normal sexual behavior, the end result being this deviant behavior as his only outlet. Not excusing him of course. Just showing responsibility extends beyond him as well.

If the upbringing caused it, wouldn't at least some of his billion brothers be @#$%& too?

No, the upbringing increases the risk for all of them, hence manifesting in this particular one (and who knows how many of the others).

Contributing isn't the same as causation, but kj knows that - I hope.

Agreed. Conservative Christians like Duggar's family create their own special kind of hell by trying to reconcile their repressive sexual beliefs with their own behaviors. It's a game they can't win. Maybe this incident will be the beginning of redemption for Dugger, but it will be a battle for him. IMO, sexual perversion becomes deeply embedded in a person's psyche and isn't easy to cure.

I’m not a fan of the Duggar’s but I think it’s a stretch to say this is a result of their beliefs.

I had never heard of them so I read their wiki. While Josh has significant problems all I read about the parents indicates they are very conservative. I didn’t read anything weird about the parents (other than the number of kids).

I don’t think birth control choices even register on my weird scale unless there is an attempt to withhold it from people as the owners of hobbie lobby do.

It’s about intentionally producing as many children as possible with no education so that white people can overtake the United States government and plunge into a theocracy. And that’s just the polite stuff. It was so incredibly deep it’s frightening.

I called Josh Duggar when he was doing the radio show and asked about his lesbian aunt. There’s articles about it online. The Duggers are horrible people, it’s beyond the pale.

Some of you forget these people are in my backyard and we’ve been reading about them for awhile. They’re not merely conservative. They had a traumatic event early in their lives (miscarriage or stillborn child) and their response was it was some kind of punishment from god (for their promiscuity?) and therefore better have as many children as possible. As part of this response they also prevent their children from having normal relationships with the opposite sex (you can look up the details). They try to hide serious issues from the authorities, feeling it’s better dealt with ‘internally’ (and their belief system renders them incapable of dealing with such issues properly). They are nice people otherwise.

Perhaps "surreality" family would be a more appropriate designation?

I would not put Josh in the nice person category

His wife is a concern too. What is she I thinking?

Yes, wives are complicit in these affairs for some reason. I knew of a guy (youth pastor at a local Baptist church) who had arrived from an out of state church fleeing ‘@#$%&’ allegations. The church from which he was fleeing did not turn him into police. Then he started doing it here. The church here did not turn him in either. After multiple allegations though, the police finally arrested him. All through this his wife stood by him, denying everything. He finally left her for a younger girl.

Nobody covers their own arses quite like houses of worship.

Quiverful.

It's a whole sect of super-conservative Christians. Men lead the house and society, women are passive followers who submit to the man. Children do not date, but court, with chaperones coming along during courting.
