Josh, Anna and the Ms 16: The sins of our fathers


Recommended Posts

Is that Anna wearing pants and singing on her latest instagram post?  

 

I really wish someDuggar would address the whole women wearing pants issue.  I remember them talking about how the men decided to wear only pants and not shorts, why can't the explain how some of them have apparently come to the conclusion after all these years that pants for women aren't so bad after all.

The shorts thing seemed to have been started by Ben. He came into the family wearing them, then JB&M probably didn't have a good counter for it.

No, neither of those women on stage is Anna. I assume she is the one taking the video.

@srlm No problem! I had to watch it a few times to be sure, lol. Instagram videos are difficult because you can’t pause them or zoom in, so it can be tough to pick people out.

I never thought I would say this, but in some ways I am glad these children are being educated at home, I cannot imagine having to go to school (especially as a teen) and have people know what my father did to his own siblings. I do think Anna is an excellent mother and, as was said previously, has been stuck with a dead weight ( and a total creep) for a husband which makes me feel sad for her but will hopefully mean that she allows her own daughters to do some living before being eternally tied to a husband. I also feel bad for their sons as they will automatically be held to a much higher level of scrutiny when amongst other families just incase they turn out like their father (I know this happening is highly unlikely but this is a community of fundies we are talking about where pseudo-science reigns supreme).

I agree. I'm totally OK with them evolving over time, even baby steps can be signs of improvement and any way these kids step away from the ultra-fundie line is one in the right direction most likely. But to just blithely pretend that nothing's ever changed seems odd, considering how they've deliberately put themselves out there as examples of Godliness.

If it was just Jinger, then I'd say she gets to make her own decisions now as a married woman, and good for her. But for Jill to suddenly be pants and nose ring after being all skirts only for years, after how sanctimonious their parents were about the whole thing? I would (and I'm SURE their leghumpers who have been trying to model their lives after the Duggars in an attempt to be "Godly" would also) like to hear something from them about it.

Did God send down a female angel wearing pants to tell them "hey, get with the times?" Did they walk in a store one day and see the light of God shining on a pair of jeans that just happened to fit them perfectly? Did they finally realize pants are more "modest" than skirts? Why did it take them this long instead of allowing it after the whole Josh thing when they were kids, when it would have made his access to his sisters much more difficult? What does Michelle think of this whole thing? JB?

Instead we are likely to continue to get something like we'd expect from Lori Alexander: "What do you mean? We've always done it this way. Just ignore all the photos and TV episodes from before showing the exact opposite."

That's true. I feel so bad for those kids.

I think that it isn't helped that it all played out so publicly and the fact that the Duggars didn't deal with it appropriately (or at all) at the time.

Add in the Ashley Madison thing and it would be a world of hurt for the M-Kids. :(

These kids are going to have to bear the brunt of their father's action whether they're in public school or just out in public at WalMart, Harp's, or the thrift store. Because EVERYONE KNOWS what their father did. 

Well, at least everyone who knows who they are.

Given how well known the family is in the area, and the publicity of Josh's crimes, I'm curious as to how the Duggar's, most likely Anna, will address Josh's past with the children, in an age-appropriate way, of course.  I can imagine the Duggar's wanting to sweep it under the table but in the day and age of the internet and the nature of his actions, its bound to surface at some point and I can see Anna trying to protect her children by at least preparing them.

I don't think they'll do anything other than what they've already done. "We're not perfect", "Joshua made a mistake", "He made it right with the Lord," "It's a non-issue"

“Daddy did some very sinful things when he was a younger man Because He let worldly things/the Devil into his heart. But he found Jesus again and was forgiven for his sins. We should also follow Jesuses example and practice forgiveness.”

 

Or some such thing. Should be enough to placate young fundie kids.

Cute pics of the kids above. I really feel sorry for them. 

I think Josh is still a POS. I hate to see his face.

Brace yourself. In a couple of days TOMORROW he turns 30, and I have a feeling we'll be seeing quite a bit of his face. :my_sick:

I think Mason looks like Josh, and I'm the person who never seen any resemblance in family members.

So, it's Josh's 30th birthday today. I wish him a mirror* so he could look at it and think about everything he has done in the first three decades of his life. 

 

* Like this one

Yup! Sounds about right! I'm guessing that's pretty much how she'll explain it!

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
