I wonder what's going through Josh's head. Does he understand what he's done? Does he realize the impact it's having on his family? Does he equate the children he saw in the videos with his own children, or does he think it's a victimless crime because HE didn't actually molest them? Is he grateful for the Rebers for giving him a place to stay and to his wife for bringing the children to see him? Does he know that he's privileged to not be in jail?
Or is he just pissed that he got caught. I'm guessing that.
I can't speak for Josh of course but had the misfortune of being with someone who got arrested for child pornography. He and his family looked for every excuse in the world: he hadn't physically touched a child; he had a 'problem' and need our support not condemnation. He even said it was his 'other persona who took over at night' .
I also worked with men who have been charged with child sex crimes in my previous job and they all gave me the same excuses as my ex. I'm yet to find one who expresses shame, remorse and a wish to change. Not saying that they don't exist but I haven't met anyone.
