Quoting Quiverfull: Why Are Infidelity And Porn Worse Than Child Molestation?

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Are Infidelity And Porn Worse Than Child Molestation? August 24, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Todd Friel from Wretched as quoted by the Christian Post – Duggar Disaster II: This time, the world is right

Editor’s note: You remember Friel? He’s the dude that thinks he’s Christianity’s answer to Jon Steward and mistakenly believes that all you need to do to end your husband’s pornography habits is to be kinder and more submissive we quoted last week.

Now he’s claiming that what Josh Duggar did to his sisters and the babysitter is understandable and forgivable but that the infidelity, porn and Ashley Madison membership is not forgivable. What. The. Fresh. Hell? One of these actions is illegal, a crime against other persons that does have dire emotional damage for the victim and the other is not. Both are bad, but I think he’s got the worse-ness of these things backwards. He’s not the only one spinning it that way either. Many people that loudly supported Josh last time, I’m looking at you Matt Walsh, are backing away and have stopped supporting him.

The fallout from the first Duggar disaster made me concerned for Josh; the second disaster compels me to apologize to you, the unbeliever. Please do not be turned off to Christ because of the behavior of some of His followers, true or otherwise.

To the Christians who defended Josh Duggar the first time, you were not wrong to do so. You reacted like a Christian and rightly explained that Josh appeared to be a fairly typical conversion story. But Josh Duggar is a serial liar and you were lied to. Do not change your theology because Josh threw egg on your face.

And to the man who is even dancing around the fringes of pornography, it is just a matter of time before you become a client of Ashley Madison, or worse. If you don’t believe me, ask Josh Duggar.

And just like Josh, your sin will find you out.
