RE: duggers and tlc!
The most upsetting thing for me is the presentation of the family living this near perfect life because of their religious beliefs. The simplest thing revealed is that they lied to cover up the behavior...behavior they obviously knew was wrong.

For me the hypocrisy is maddening as is the number of people who worked to hide this information so that their facade was protected.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I wish I could go back to the blissful ignorance of my pre-Duggar days.

I know the feeling. Oh I wish I didn't know what a "creationist" was, before I joined TTA I was blissfully unaware.

Ray Comfort and Eric Hovind will do. Also, his father, covering it up and refusing to actually deal with the problem.

Of course, let's not forget Josh, himself.

I saw those comments, as well as comments from Mike Huckabee that were rather disturbing. These people are disgusting. But, we should be than, not furious.

This incident has let the public see the true colors of These fanatics. I feel for the victims but now more of the public gets to see religious hypocrisy in all its glory.

I also see it this way (a bit) however ... these are people who are unable to take responsibility for their own actions. I have no doubt they will come out with a statement that all this has come about through god's will. So right there, everyone is off the hook. It will all be accepted and "forgiven" and forgotten. (Until one of his victims acts out badly and has no idea why)

This shit is ingrained in their insular culture. People like this ... they are living out their own version of 'Lord of the Flys' ... they don't have any idea what's going on, but it's certainly high drama. Drinking Beverage

I have no doubt they will forgive themselves. I think they already have. And, Now they are blaming others. But, not everyone is a Christian fanatic. The average person will be disgusted by these antics. I can't believe TLC is on the fence about keeping them on. I read a bunch of their advertisers already pulled out.

There is little chance this ends well for them, no matter how they try to spin it.

I love that after so many years of rubbing their holier-than-thou in everybody's faces, their own unholiness has been shown in living color. Mr. Jim Bob Control Freak must be hiding his head in shame - or should be. Probably doesn't have enough smarts, though.

Rumor has it Hulu pulled all the episodes. <snort>

And yet, there are those who are worse.......

Well it's not like a TV network to let human decency get in the way of ratings hey? Rolleyes

Of course these types of people have their own get out clause: "I was influenced by Satan, but now I've repented and Jesus has given me the strength to defeat satan, now come and listen to my remarkable redemption story while the TV network throws lots of money at me"
I don't suspect it will be long before we hear something along these lines (are you reading this Ted fucking Haggard)?

Is it really so hard to act like a normal person and to have some integrity by doing something really 'far out' like, I don't know, TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS?
Not when there's $$$ to be made from invisible sky people! Dodgy

today's update.

this officer said he was only told of one time and the story he was given was a very watered down version, which is why he didnt realize how serious it was.

I will see if I can find a link that I read last night
