He's only sorry he got caught.

Like Jarred (Subway guy) he (as in reality many many others) only seem to come clean once they see all the dirt others have on them. Perhaps they should of never gotten dirty in first place then needling to come clean wouldn't be needed. Something tells me there will be a infinite line of peps needing to come clean as more names are leaked

Again, John 8:7

Don't know if he's sincere or not. Don't really care. Not my business.

Either way, we have a pop culture where if someone fails to apologize, they're burned in effigy for not apologizing. If they do, then people question their motives.

I just feel for their families impacted. The internet will not forget and chances are their kids will stumble onto this stuff someday... what kind of internet legacy do you want to leave?

I suspect I have very little control over my Internet legacy ;)

Stories like this just rub me wrong because it feels more like tabloid gossip than actual news.

I care very little about celebrity lives, but when this family not only gets held up as a bastion of modern conservative christian values, but chose to elevate themselves to that and went around preaching about family values, they sure better be held up to scrutiny. Speck in your brother's eye and log in your own.
This isn't your standard famous family, they chose to use their position to preach and proselytize a particular worldview.

And what's really disgusting about this is that he comes out with this apology about pornography? This is when he gets all weepy? He molested his sisters. Even if you think porn is wrong, it would be drop into a bucket compared to what he did. Even adultery pales in the shadow. Their Pharisaical brand of Christianity is so far off kilter that he's "the biggest hypocrite" because he looked at some dirty pics online, but he's totally been forgiven and went to counseling, blah blah blah, when he raped his underage sisters.

Absolutely reprehensible.

And the parents want a new show where they "help" other sexual abuse victims? It'd be funny if it wasn't so disgusting.

I hope they don't get that show because it looks like they failed in that regard

Yeeeeeeah it seems to me perhaps they've grown to like the attention too much. If I were in a situation like that I think I'd keep my head down and SHUT UP.

I was listening to a Matt Walsh podcast yesterday that made the same points you did, Arch... That if you're going to put yourself out in the public view you'd better have all of your private ducks in a row, or you might wind up causing exactly this kind of scandal. All that does is give ammo to haters, disillusionment to some followers, and generally tarnish the image of what Christianity is supposed to be.

This one's for the "You're Not Helping" file.

Yeah... I've been following what Matt Walsh has said about this Duggar scandal since it broke, and he needs to shut his mouth. When the molestation story broke he was butthurt because people were outraged about it--Josh Duggar had apologized, you see, so everyone should shut up about it because Lena Dunham. Now he seems more offended that Josh Duggar wasn't truly sorry (DUH!) than the fact that he molested five girls, at least one of which was as young as five years old. Walsh was perfectly okay with the fact that Jim Bob and Michelle did everything in their power to sweep this under the rug to protect their reputation until Josh Duggar ended up on Ashley Madison and embarrassed everyone sticking up for him.

Arch pretty much summed up my thoughts on the Duggars, so I'll stop here before I get banned for using colorful language.
