Jessa Duggar’s Husband, Ben Seewald, Condemned Parents Who ‘Abuse Their …

’19 Kids and Counting’ cast pulled from Philadelphia event in wake of molestation scandal, report says.

In this Aug. 29, 2014, file photo, Josh Duggar, executive director of FRC Action, speaks in favor the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act at the Arkansas state Capitol in Little Rock, Ark. Days before news broke of Josh Duggar’s alleged molestation of five girls when he was a teen, the 19 Kids and Counting star’s pregnant wife Anna Duggar shared a cryptic quote about forgiveness — read it here.It would be like a cracked mirror reflecting a foggy mirror, an eternal cascade of blurry images and croaky sound bites from programs such as My Husband’s Not Gay, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Jon & Kate Plus Eight, Toddlers and Tiaras, Virgin Diaries, I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant, Freaky Eaters, My Strange Addiction, Extreme Cheapskates, America’s Worst Tattoos and Hoarding: Buried Alive. Seewald’s post, which quotes frequently from the Bible, comes days after the strongly religious Josh was shamed by an In Touch Weekly story about a 2006 police report on him. In the clip, which comes from an episode of the show when it was called 17 Kids & Counting, Duggar recalls how he wanted to go on a date with his then-fiancée Anna, but needed a chaperone. “So, we chose Jana and John David –- we thought why not have a double date,” Duggar said in the clip. “We are from Arkansas!” “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.

The Duggars were originally scheduled to appear alongside other TLC reality show stars like “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro and Kate Gosselin at the TLC Summer Block Party on May 30. You don’t even need to watch two minutes to know the cable network that once stood for The Learning Channel should be renamed TFS, as in The Freak Show. The report also says Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, knew about the accused molestations, some of which might have involved Josh’s sisters, even though they never publicly acknowledged them. I hurt others, including my family and close friends,” Duggar wrote on Facebook after the news broke. “I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation.

If you want to star in a TLC show — and they accept online applications — all you probably need to do is send in a video in which you’re gobbling thumbtacks or reading Shakespeare to lampposts or confessing a lifelong attraction to farm animals while sprawled on a bed of hay in your cow pyjamas. But the downside of setting up tripods in the cultural margins to showcase people who don’t hew to convention is that a network runs the risk of showcasing people who may be more than just unusual. We should not downplay the seriousness of these offenses particularly, nor gloss over the pain and confusion they often bring, sometimes for a lifetime.” Seewald is just the latest to defend the embattled reality show star. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was — even every difficult past mistakes.” Since the allegations have surfaced, Josh has stepped down from his post at the Family Research Council, a conservative nonprofit based in Washington, D.C. While the scandal continues, Us Weekly confirmed last week that local circuit Judge Stacey Zimmerman signed for all copies of records from 2006 pertaining to the Josh Duggar investigation be destroyed.

On Monday, an old clip from the show resurfaced, in which Duggar makes an incest joke, which seems to suggest we can at least debate the “deeply regret” and “extremely sorry” contained in his public apology last week.
