This meme, verbatim, captures all of my feelings about Josh Duggar these days. The rumors about his return to the next season of "Counting On" were bad enough, now he wants to join (thereby jeapordizing) his victims' invasion of privacy lawsuit?

Joshly the Douche Duggar claims he can't find employment because of the shame, and I'm calling BS on that.  If he can be on a tacky reality show and get paid by TLC that is employment

He should do the decent thing and become a reclusive monk up a mountain somewhere thereby relinquishing his hold on Anna and her children.

I say go eunuch, just to be sure.

Apologies, I can add nothing of substance to the debate but thanks to all those who are educating me on the legalities and suchlike. I think there are quite a few of us non-US peeps, who, perhaps be like me, have legal knowledge that stems from the first few seasons of The Good Wife and the lengthy explanations are very much appreciated.

I haven't read the articles yet, but PLEASE, PLEASE tell me that they are referring to him as the "sex pest" again.

That was the absolute best thing ever.

I think that all of that is messed up and makes one an inadequate parent, but to me cruel would be saying that men have the right to molest women, forbidding the children from marrying at all costs, being like Steve Maxwell and likening fun with the devil, or in extreme child abuse cases - locking their children in dog cages.

Well, remember this cult teaches that it's impossible to be a "victim" of domestic violence, because of insert irrelevant Bible verse here misquoted that says something about beating, lots of ellipses, and wives.  Women must make their bodies "joyfully available" to their husbands at all times or they're at fault if he cheats.   And they can't act to protect their kids from their husband's sexual abuse unless they first "appeal" to their husbands, then to his parents, and then to the church.

But I guess that doesn't qualify any more than keeping CinderDuggar at home helping with the kids.  

There are lots of levels of child cruelty to talk about, but when your defense is "They only locked the girls in their bedroom, not cages"...  that's kind of damming in and of itself.

I was not aware that they locked the children in the bedrooms. When did they say that? You mean they actually put them all in the room and locked it at night? With a key?

As far as the cult goes, I have heard about the "joyfully available" bull, but I thought that sexual abuse towards one's children and domestic violence was strictly forbidden just like the rest of the world thinks.

But anyway, one's definition of cruel is subjective. Don't get me wrong, though. I think that the Gothard cult is horrible. You don't need to debate me on that.

@TaylurkerAfter the molestations the parents put a lock on their daughters' bedroom door. I think Jill and Jessa spoke about it in the Megyn Kelly interview.

Its not clear where the lock was located. It's possible (and likely) that the daughters were able to lock the door from the inside.

Cruelty is subjective. But I think most people would agree that manipulating your daughters into forgiving and waiting on their brother (who sexually assaulted them) is pretty cruel.

I shudder when I think of the years the laundry room victim spent doing his laundry after he sexually assaulted her.  Not just the idea that she had to do the pig's laundry, but also that she had to do that laundry in the very place he assaulted her.

Wow. Well I certainly hope that it was on the inside, like most normal homes have... This cult is just a never-ending rabbit hole.

I agree that that is pretty cruel if you look at it with that perspective.

That's the same Bible my ex read. A 'friend' of mine had her husband raise it - you know, as you do, over Sunday lunch with kids within 10ft. His response was "yes, but you and I know the Bible says it's legal to discipline your wife with anything smaller than your forearm".

Travis Story is also on the Arkansas Commission to dispense marijuana licenses.  https://www.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archives/2016/12/07/marijuana-commission-to-be-gatekeeper-for-dispensaries-grow-centers

Also, Bob Ballinger (who is Austin's brother in law's dad) practices at the Story Law Firm.

This may be the first cracks in the family.

I can't seem to read the original legal docs on the Huff Post story, but  in the text quoted:

 "Not so with Movant,....has subjected him to exposure only in an intensely negative  light for actions he engaged in as an indiscrete youth...."

 Hasn't the ganja lawyer gone for the wrong spelling/meaning?

I mean, I'm no *degreed law professional or anything.....

Figuratively. ;) I don't blame you for asking for clarification, though - you don't know me, and for all you know I might truly believe that literal demons have infested Josh's body.

Actually, that might explain a lot...

...isn't that the ...I want to say Buddhist (?) story - where the wise monk tells the young boy: 'The wolf who wins is the one you feed'.

I think it's supposed to be a Cherokee legend, but yeah, I think that's basically the gist of it. Except I think in the legend, one of the wolves is supposed to be the good wolf, whereas my argument with Josh was that both 'wolves' were bad and what he needed was more of a golden retriever.

And... now I think I've stretched this metaphor? allusion? about as far as it'll go... :pb_lol:

That's the one! ...proof positive if ever it were needed that MIO is completely shit at geography.

 

ETA: ...and the golden retriever - literally made me giggle out loud.

Oh my gosh!  That is a great catch! I looked at the original lawsuit and it is misspelled in the document.

I'm getting a kick out of the fact that you're genuinely relieved that I wasn't talking about actual demons. Hey, we've had some odd folks swing by FJ, so you never know.

This law firm they're using specializes in Church Law. Does this make them Degreed Christian Persecution Complex Lawyers™?

To spell this out further: JB and Michelle not only made their daughters live in the same home as their abuser for years, but after Smuggar finally did move out, they kept sending the girls - including at least one of his victims - to ""help"" him and his family in DC with zero oversight and zero resources or support if something were to happen. A pretty good indication of the Duggar parents' commitment to protecting their daughters.

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
       
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      I’ve had to evacuate due to all the aggressive wildfires,  Mr Kool is evacuated to the hospital because of his non mobility, hopefully they find him a bed in the local care home.  Fire sucks.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
      Picture included for something cool to look at.
