It's the hypocrisy that gets me! People stand by the molester, or at best be silent on the subject, if the molester shared the same belief set or political opinions of them. The left are just as guilty!

But the difference is, and I am not making excuses in defence of unbelievers, Christians are meant to be held to a higher standard than your average sinner, ie everyone not a Christian. They should know better. The majority including even ordinary Christians who don't hold themselves up as an example are not put in the same light as the celebrity Christians who put themselves forward as an example of Christian behaviour. This is a Bible truth:

Luke 12:48
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For to whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?Then he is not omnipotent.Is he able, but not willing?Then he is malevolent.Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? (Epicurus circa:300 BC)

I somehow can't work up a great deal of sympathy for Josh Duggar. I must be a bad person.

Not surprised because it's typical fundie behavior. To somehow make themselves the victim in some way.

An evil atheist probably said "Happy Holidays" to him and it made him molest his sisters.

Josh Duggar’s Sisters Say They’d Be Traumatized By Sitting Next to Him in Court

Back in May, Josh Duggar, the Christian TV personality who admitted to molesting his young sisters, asked to join a privacy lawsuit filed by his sisters. Now, his sisters are asking the court not to merge the two cases, saying it would further traumatize them.

Josh’s sisters Jill, Jinger, Jessa, and Joy Duggar sued city officials, the police, and the publishers of In Touch Weekly, which broke the story of their assaults, saying they released interviews that should have been kept secret. They have legitimate claims about their privacy, so that lawsuit wasn’t unexpected.

The crazy part is that Josh Duggar, playing the victim card, decided he wanted to join the action. He claimed the actions of the police caused him mental anguish and humiliation, and that he was forced to relive the “traumatic experience” he had as a juvenile.

In other words, he’s suing people because they reminded him of the traumatic experiences he caused.

Unfortunately for Mr. Duggar, his sisters/victims have asked the court not to allow their case to be tried alongside his.

“Deciding claims based on protecting victims of sex crimes from disclosure, while at the same time, having those claims consolidated with the perpetrator of those crimes will be confusing to the jury,” the documents state.

The girls’ attorneys emphatically deny that they are “in this together” with Josh Duggar and specifically say they don’t want to be seated next to him in the courtroom.

“It would be next to impossible for a jury to ignore the perpetrator sitting next to the victims, yet decide the different issues, different claims and different damages that apply for victims as compared to perpetrator. Consolidation would undoubtedly give the false impression that the victims and the perpetrator are ‘in this together.’“

Going even further, the sisters claim they would be further traumatized if he successfully joins their lawsuit.

“Forcing the victims to join their claims with their perpetrator’s claims would further traumatize the very victims Arkansas law is designed to protect.”

There’s no telling if the court will side with Josh Duggar or his sisters, but it would be pretty extreme if the cases were merged against the victims’ will. It’s a recipe for further trauma, especially considering all that they have been through. The girls, I mean. Not Josh.

Good for the sisters, standing up for themselves. Although some of the commentors at Patheos think this move is just greed and/or Quiverful politicking, I don't read it that way. As one person said, it sounds like the sisters are starting to wake up.
