The Duggars Say The Devil Turned Josh Into A Perv To Destroy Them

When the news leaked about Josh Duggar’s youthful dalliance with child molestation and, later, his penchant for adultery, I assumed this was because he was perhaps not a very good person, and definitely a hypocrite. According to the Duggars, I was wrong.

Apparently, this whole thing had nothing to do with Josh not being a good person, or with the fact that perhaps the fact that maybe the misogynistic family values they espouse might not be the most effective way of raising children who do not turn out to be child molesting adulterers. Apparently, it was a plot, mastered by the Devil himself, in order to take down the Duggars. According to them, anyway!

The devil took his best shot,” John-David Duggar explained on Good Morning America on Tuesday, “And he tried to take our whole family down, but God has really used this to — instead of tearing us apart as a family, he’s using it to draw us together … We’ve forgiven. We’re moving on and we’re looking to the future.”

So much for personal responsibility, eh! I guess that only applies when you’re a poor person or a woman with an unintended pregnancy! Otherwise, it’s just the devil being out to get you, because he’s threatened by your awesome holiness. CLEARLY.
