The Duggar's molestation scandal is disgusting but seriously do not mock someone's religion. If they really believe that Josh Duggar will be forgiven for what he has done just let them have that. It's not right and they won't be forgiven but don't pin this on the Christian religion, please.
I’m not pinning it on the Christian religion or mocking individual Christians who are not involved in this scandal. I AM pointing out how hypocritical it is that the Christian right wing claims they are against gay/trans rights and sexual freedom and contraception because of “family values” but actively protects and covers up pedophilia and child abuse and incest in their own community.
I’m not going to keep silent about the fact that a religious institution is deeply culpable for the mass abuse of children because I’m supposed to respect all religions. I don’t respect child abusers and those who enable child abuse. I’m not going to stand idly by while these people say we should forget about this issue because they and their god have “forgiven” a child rapist when they offer no mention of the wellbeing of the children who were abused and no evidence that this is an issue they take seriously or have taken steps to prevent in the future. Fuck them.
And if you are a member of the Christian church and don’t want to be associated with the child abusers in your midst, push the church to hold them accountable. Don’t come after people like me and other bloggers and news outlets for simply SHARING information about the case in the hopes that it never happens again.
