Anna Duggar‘s brother had some harsh words for Josh Duggar after word got out that the 19 Kids and Counting star had a paid Ashley Madison account.
Now, another in-law is speaking out. Jessa Duggar‘s father-in-law wrote a blog post completely bashing his son Ben Seewald‘s disgraced brother-in-law.
Michael Seewald took to the internet to call Josh out for being a huge hypocrite, writing:
“It distresses me to say that Josh Duggar’s greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God. He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise. With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil. While proudly saying things like, ‘Our family is like the epitome of conservative values,’ he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs. He took a job at the Family Research Council that exists to promote the traditional family, all the while undermining his own family by violating his marriage covenant.”
Yikes! He continued to say that Josh essentially dragged God’s name through the mud:
“He flourished in the fame of his family and the success of their television show, all the while betraying their trust and Christian values. The thing that is so hurtful is that he was a loud voice endorsing Christian ethics and he has been shown to be a fraud. I am profoundly grieved that he attained such a platform only to bring shame on God’s holy name and the Christian faith. After hearing of Josh’s scandal when he was a teenager, I publicly stated that Josh appeared to be a changed man, was walking above reproach, and living out the faith that he professed. I stood in solidarity, encouraging him to use the scandal to build humility and grace. Sadly, he had deceived us all. The name of God has been blasphemed and God is jealous for his name.”
Ouch. Since the whole scandal surfaced, Josh has checked himself in to a religious rehab facility. It’ll be inneresting to see if any other family members speak up about what he’s done.
