What a hypocritical fraud. He needs to go away. The guy has some issues. Messing with your sister, now viewing the online porn and cheating on his wife, all the while pretending to be a supporter of family values. And please don’t blame the liberal media for any of this. He put himself in the position he did by condemning others for their behavior and then doing this. He deserves every bit of criticism he gets over this. I feel bad for his wife and his kids. They deserve much better than this. Hopefully they can work things out and he gets the help he needs, but he needs to stay away from TV and commenting on anything about how to live your life. Just be a father and a husband and keep quiet.
Uh Oh…what now? What did he do?
It has been confirmed that he had not one, but two paid accounts with Ashley Madison, up until the end of May of this year, so after he was married and had a child.
I was laughing about Ashley Madison last night–I know one guy who I’ll bet is sweating bullets right now. Good bank for the site owners though. Duggar paid like $1000 over 3 years for membership? Nice…..
Ashley Madison is an online website for cheaters to hook up.
Yes, thus the comment on #4 above.
But has he said he did hook up? I read he was posting but is there confirmation that he HAD cheated too?
He said he was unfaithful.
here is Josh’s statement:
I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.
I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.
I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.
As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.
I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.
Wow….curious to see if his wife “stands by her man” this time.
Let’s not be too hardon the guy. 😎
Time for a lesson in the Calculus of Apology. 8)
Ok, he said he was unfaithful……you are talking about a Duggar here…….what does that MEAN???? Did he have sex with someone else? To him, unfaithful might mean he was looking for thrills online. I think the whole thing is sick, but I don’t know if he had was “unfaithful” in the physical sense. Is there clarification on that?
Because it’s on the Internet, it’s “confirmed.” i just assume he did something he shouldn’t have, and he’s probably feeling pretty remorseful about it. If others want to drool, have at it. Still a pretty interesting family with some good values, although those values may have brought him down.
If he is the average Joe, no one cares. But he’s not. He and his family have made it their mission to preach family values. He worked for an organization that espoused that. He’s a hypocrite and that’s why this is news. When you make it your life trying to tell others how to live theirs then you darn well better not do something like this. Don’t forget this on top of what he did to his sister and others. He’s not remorseful. That’s BS. He’s remorseful he got caught.
Exactly. He’s upset he got caught. His accounts were paid until May of this year. He had them for years. Not one account, but two. He didn’t get remorseful until he was caught. He stopped his accounts when the molestation history came out.
Public apologies after you get caught mean very little to me. I get sick of people blaming the media for this. The media didn’t do anything. He made that choice himself. He doesn’t owe the public anything. It’s between him and his family.
His poor wife……..she’s been raised to be submissive and meek, but I feel for her. How can she live with someone who has disrespected her so much?
He should be fine. His wife will forgive him. He may just have signed up for chat. Josh is a man of faith. Jesus Christ forgives all those who has faith in him.
Wow, at it again! Yeah he has issues.
