A Duggar Relative Is Heard From: Anyone Would Molest A Child ... Given The Chance

As the story of Josh Duggar, child molester, pedophile, his sister Jessa Duggar’s father-in-law, Michael Seewald, also came out in defense of Josh.

He actually says that it’s only consequences keep any and all of us from molesting other children, and family members. Seewald then went on to actually praise Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle for their handling of the situation — by avoiding it at all costs, teaching their son to lie about it, teaching their children — and four of Josh’s victims —t o lie about, and allowing a pedophile to sleep in the same house as his victims.

Michael Seewald adds that “we should not be surprised” that this happened in the Duggar home because of humankind’s “sinful nature” because it’s only the “mercy of God” that keeps people from molesting children.

And he gets even more disgusting, because he says we should all be thanking God if we have been spared having one of our siblings sexually abuse us while we slept:
“Many times it is simply lack of opportunity or fear of consequences that keep us from falling into grievous sin even though our fallen hearts would love to indulge the flesh. We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggar’s home, we should rather be thankful to God if we have been spared such, and pray that he would keep us and our children from falling.”
We should not be shocked that this occurred in the Duggar’s home? We should not be shocked that a brother molested four of his own sisters and a stranger? We should not be shocked that his parents covered up his crimes? We should not be shocked that the only police officer told after the crime was a family friend who basically said, ‘Meh,’ and moved on? What the Hell kind of world does this man, and the entire Duggar family, live in that this kind of behavior is not something shocking?

I find it shocking that Michael Seewald thinks the only thing that keeps people from becoming pedophiles and molesters and child abusers and forcing an incestuous relationship on their own sister, is the fact that God might punish us … or that there isn’t anyone around to molest.

Seriously? Why any child, of any age, is left in that house, where child molestation is treated as an ‘Uh oh’ is unfathomable; and why that family still seeks to defend the actions of a pedophile is beyond reprehensible. But Michael Seewald believes God has forgiven Josh:
“I want to say that the Seewald family stands with the Duggar family in solidarity. I want to say to Josh, hang in there, the shame you feel is legitimate, yet Jesus took your shame as he was punished in your place.”
Good, let’s “punish” Jesus for Josh Duggar’s sins, and let Josh Duggar, his parents, the authorities in Arkansas, the Duggar’s church, and that scam of a rehabilitation center, get off with no punishment at all.

Take that show off the air and put that entire family out of business.

It get's more insane every day. One wonders -- do they even hear what they are saying?

I might note, however, that the general inability to distinguish what God does or requires [even granting that the Duggar's God is God] and what civil law does or requires is part of the pathology here.

Reading this post I kept thinking: is Seewald trying to explain himself? I also wonder how Josh Duggar's kids will fare. This entire family is disgusting.

I understand that some (why not all?) advertisers are fleeing the Duggars. I wonder, to be honest, not only why TLC is being slow to cancel the program, but why other TLC stars have not spoken up and threatened to withdraw their own programming if the Duggars are allowed to stay -- or even, Deity forfend, do a spin-off, as has been rumored.

"Anyone Would Molest A Child ... Given The Chance" - nope, have never thought about doing something as hideous as this. so DON'T lump ME in there with josh duggar, you asshat!

Scott said...

I just can't. I do not understand these people or the people who try and defend the actions of all of them.

Raybeard said...

Do I get this right? We ALL have a sexual interest in our children, parents and siblings? Goodness me! All my life and I've never been aware of it!

jadedj said...

Sick is the only word that comes to mind. No, add DISGUSTING to that. What a sick and disgusting view of the world these people have.

Biki Honko said...

I have NEVER thought of touching ANY child sexually, EVER! This bag o'crap either is trying way to hard to defend the vile josh, or he himself has struggled with feelings of pedophilia.

Helen Lashbrook said...

Presumably this Seewald jerk also fantasises about paedophilia. Perhaps the police should seize his PC. Over 99% of the world's population are completely sickened by the idea of paedophilia; Seewald is seriously sick.

Listen, it may be a lack of opportunity and fear of consequence keeping me from going to wherever the Duggars are and beating the living hell out of them, but no, I do not want to rape children, animals, or other adults - and not because I don't think I could get away with it, but rather because I feel NO physical desire to do such horrible things!

These people sicken me, and I hope that if there is a hell, they get a great rotten part of it.
