It seems the Duggar story of sheer hypocrisy is going viral worldwide. It has now ended up on my home page in Australia, referred back to the New York Times.
With new even worse revelations about Duggar christian hypocrisy, if that's even possible. It has come to light that after the police closed the case due to the statute of limitations running out (BTW there are no statute of limitations in Australia for child sexual assault) the case was referred on to the US Department of Human Services. The DHS then had the power to intervene in the family to address Josh's behaviour. Something that one would think the parents and family would welcome as a plan forward for the whole family; a helping hand in a time of terrible distress and need.
But no. Incredibly, Josh sued the DHS to try to get the DHS out of their lives. This is beyond belief.
Police referred the matter to the Families in Need of Services agency, which has jurisdiction over minors. The Department of Human Services (DHS) was then brought into the case, In Touch has learned. Nine months after those agencies entered the Duggar molestation case, Josh Duggar sued the Arkansas Department of Human Services. A trial was held on August 6, 2007.So that was the family's response to the offer of help from the DHS. Shoot the messenger and cover it all up. How very righteous upstanding christian of them. Sounds very much like what happens in churches worldwide, particularly the Catholic church doesn't it. There is a pattern of shooting the messenger, covering up the crime, and moving on. All the while proclaiming to the world how fuckin holy and clean they are. *pffft*
The results of the investigation into the Duggars and Josh’s trial are sealed. But a source familiar with the Duggar investigation told In Touch it was likely that Josh “appealed the DHS decision or finding from their investigation.” The source notes that DHS had the authority to apply “restrictions or stipulations about him being at home with the victims.
“Josh would be considered an in-home offender, giving DHS the authority to do an investigation. As part of your appeal rights you can request a DHS hearing to challenge what they found and their ruling.”
The Duggars are refusing to comment on the intervention by either department and Josh’s trial against DHS. They also are refusing to say if their family was monitored by a state agency after the 2007 actions and forced to undergo counseling by a licensed mental health professional. more
Incidentally, one of Josh's victims was only 5 years old.
Although many details in the police report are redacted, based on the ages of his siblings and the dates of the molestations as described to police, one of Josh's victims was as young as five-years-old when Josh touched her private parts. It was part of an escalating series of attacks by Josh. moreI've said it many times before, I'd put secular morality up against christian morality any day.
.....part of the reason the Duggars are hated by so many good, decent Americans, is that they are EXTREMELY anti-gay, they tell people that transgender people are going to rape their little girls in the bathroom, and other stuff and things. These are people who portray an entire minority segment of the population as predators. It’s not that people are “bloodthirsty,” and they’re certainly not HAPPY the Duggar girls were sexually abused. God, no. This is a story about how wingnuts really shouldn’t go around baselessly calling entire groups of people child molesters, especially when they’re hiding their own child molesting past.
