Anna Duggar Fully Supports Josh Duggar, Despite ’19 Kids and Counting’ Star’s History of Sexual Molestation.

Anna Duggar fully supports her husband, Josh Duggar, despite the fact that he sexually molested four of his sisters and one other female–all minors–when he was a teenager.

In a statement Friday, the channel said it was deeply troubled and saddened by what it called a “heartbreaking situation.” TLC said its “thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time.” The statement doesn’t elaborate. However, it’s important to point out that it’s not her fault that she’s in this situation — she was raised to believe that women shouldn’t leave home until they’re married. According to the police department, Duggar was never arrested on the allegations and he had received a court order to destroy all copies of the document so as to protect an alleged victim. Now, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are in danger of losing their 19 Kids and Counting paycheck because of a sex scandal involving their oldest son, Josh Duggar. On Thursday, Duggar issued an apology, admitting that he did the wrong thing; however, he did not directly speak about the allegations that were reported by In Touch magazine and other websites.

Just days ago the family revealed the gender of the new baby–due in July. “Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives,” Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle, 48, said in a joint statement to People magazine. “When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. After an InTouch report about allegations that Josh, 27, molested a young girl while in his teens was published, TMZ reported that he was accused of molesting four other girls as well. Now, Josh’s actions could negatively effect his siblings more than they already have — Jana’s parents will have less cash to spend on their kids if their TLC show gets cancelled. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before.” “Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. Jana Duggar has been dubbed “Cinderella Duggar” by fans who hate the way she’s treated by her family — they believe that her parents force her to do too much babysitting and housework.

After her younger sisters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard, got married and moved out of the house, this left “sister mom” Jana with even more responsibilities. Fans assume that Jana Duggar would love to ditch her live-in nanny job to do something else, and there have been rumors that she wants to go to college. We hope somehow the story of our journey–the good times and the difficult times–cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything,” the statement reads. “I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. However, according to a report by Gawker, a source purporting to have knowledge of Josh’s incestuous behavior once said that Jana wasn’t one of his victims. If this is the case, it’s possible that there’s some truth to the speculation that she’s staying home to make sure that none of her youngest siblings suffer the same fate as the four sisters that Josh molested.

I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” “I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions,” he adds. “I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. Reruns of the show were recently pulled from TLC’s schedule, and many fans thought that this was the writing on the wall — the move made it seem like the network was about to cancel the show for good.
