19 Indictments and Counting

One aphorism I firmly believe is "scratch a moralist, reveal a pervert". Well, once again, this adage is proved true- one of the Duggar children is a child molestor. As if that weren't horrific enough, via Tengrain, we learn that Bad Touch Duggar had a job that he was particularly unsuited for:

You cannot make this shit up: Josh Duggar is now resigned from anti-gay Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council, where he was a lobbyist working on keeping predator gays away from kids

Leave it to a bunch of fundies to hire an actual monster to perpetrate character assassination on "undesirables". I can't even muster any schadenfreude here because of the hideous nature of Duggar's crimes. I sincerely hope that his sisters find the courage to leave the fundamentalist fold. In the meantime, all of those "family values" candidates who have been photographed with the guy are going to have a hell of a time shoving all of their adulation for the Duggars down the memory hole.

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others."

Conservative religion in this country, to a "T."

Any belief or expectation that there is any link between morals, ethics and mythology is prima facie false. It is merely another cudgel they use to enforce the power structures in their given mythology.

Some time ago, we had an ongoing discussion at Sadly about Peak Wingnut. I argued that Peak Wingnut could never be reached, only exceeded, over and over.

In a rightwing and Republican Party that are increasingly dysfunctional. sociopathic and psychopathic, the revelation that anti-gay zealots are themselves gay, or that Lawn Order "lock 'em up" zealots like Rush are themselves drug addicts and felons, or that Personal Responsibility floggers like BillO are themselves guilty of appalling domestic violence and sexual assault/harassment, it is rare to be surprised and repulsed and nauseated.

No, that's not a response to Josh Duggar's crimes; I wish I could say I was surprised. No, I am sickened by the Elder Duggar's concealment of the crimes until they could finish their TV show's season, and the fact that he went to his Church Elders first rather than the police; Elders who THEN SAT ON THE INFO FOR A FURTHER THREE MONTHS.

And then, just to further erode any hope or positive feeling I have for humans; not only has pretty much every single Republican Presidential Contender been photographed with the sex criminal Duggar (the first one) but Fuckabee is first out of the gate FUCKING DEFENDING THE SCUMBAG SEX CRIMINAL ASSHOLE.

Seriously. Being a zombie is a point of pride at this point. I mean, I am only a monster.....

Also, it should be emphasized that Josh and Jim Bob both sat on the info until the statute of Limitations for sex crimes had expired.

How very Christian and Moral of them.

All 19 kids should be taken away from them and remanded to better parents. Like Sharon and Ozzy.

Role models, see how they work?

But after the 5th complaint the Duggars and their church sent rapey-boy to an old family friend & counsellor* who advised him not to get caught any more, so we know he stopped and God has forgiven him. Anyway the church knew so there was no need to notify the lesser authorities of the state.

* Now in prison for child pornography.

It is only a matter of time before he and the flying monkey brigade turn child molestation into another Republican purity test -- normal wholesome family activity! -- and start questioning all those liberals and atheists (but I repeat myself) who are not raping their sisters.
