We are so thankful for the outpouring of love, care and prayers for our family during this most difficult situation with Josh. As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear. Yesterday Josh checked himself into a long-term treatment center. For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery. We pray that in this he comes to complete repentance and sincere change. In the meantime, we will be offering our love, care and devoted support to Anna and our grandchildren as she also receives counsel and help for her own heart and future. During this time we continue to look to God—He is our rock and comfort. We ask for your continued prayers for our entire family.
Oh God, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
Well let's hope this is more effective than the LAST counseling Josh received after he molested his sisters.
And he is going to need it because apparently he has been paying for sex with porn stars:
In a bombshell world-exclusive interview with In Touch magazine, stripper and porn star Danica Dillon, 28, reveals she had sex not once, but on two separate occasions, with Josh Duggar, both occurring when his wife, Anna, was pregnant with their fourth child!
Danica — who passed a polygraph test conducted for In Touch by a top certified polygrapher on Aug. 24 — details her two sexual encounters with Josh in the new issue of +In Touch+, on newsstands now. The first occurred after Josh approached her at the Gold Club in Philadelphia, where she was performing, in mid-March and the second only a month later when Danica was performing at Creekside Cabaret in Colmar, Pa.
"He was manhandling me, basically tossing me around like I was a rag doll."
She also claimed that while she has had rough sex before this was different:
“It was very traumatic. I’ve had rough sex before, but this was terrifying.”
She also says that she expects there are other girls besides her who will be coming forward.
And all of this after Jim Bob tried so hard to help curb his son's lustful thoughts.
This from Raw Story:
According to 2014’s Growing Up Duggar — a companion book to the Duggars’ TLC series 19 Kids and Counting — Jim Bob keeps the boys in the family from ogling attractive women by saying the word “Nike” whenever the clan runs into a woman or girl who might excite their lust. The word is the boys’ signal to look down at their shoes.
“That’s a signal to the boys, and even to Dad, that they should nonchalantly drop their eyes and look down at their shoes as we walk past her,” said the book.
You know I think I see the flaw in Jim Bob's parenting approach.
After all isn't THIS the Nike motto?
If the Duggar family was smart they would get counseling for the whole damn family before it's too late.
