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.
