News: TLC’s Sexual Predator Problem – Toby Willis and Josh Duggar

News: TLC’s Sexual Predator Problem – Toby Willis and Josh Duggar December 3, 2016

newsThere’s been news this week on reality television star Toby Willis and his upcoming trial. He is being held without bond in Tennessee on charges of raping a child of 12 years old or under. His family once had a television show on TLC titled ‘The Willis Family”.

According to The Tennessean the attorney for Toby Willis has requested that the preliminary hearing for the trial be postponed for a fourth time. His reason? He believes that Mr. Willis is possibly mentally incompetent based upon his conversations and interactions with his client. He is seeking an evaluation by mental health professionals of his client’s mental state.

Very likely. Many of these patriarchs active in the Quiverfull movement have mental issues or deluded thinking. Which brings us to TLC’s other Quiverfull sexual predator – Josh Duggar.

While Josh hasn’t been accused of anything new and no more victims or lawsuits have emerged The Daily Mail has a fascinating article online showing the difficulties that TLC is having filming Duggar family events without showing Josh on camera. It takes some juggling for them to honor their promise to keep Josh off the new Duggar family television show ‘Counting On’. I will say that the camera crew was creative in their Josh blocking.

There’s been a ton of Duggar related news this week. As usual they are trying to stay in the limelight and stay relevant. This week alone –

  • Michelle and Jim Bob obtained legal custody of the family child they’ve been fostering.
  • Joy Anna announced she would not even be holding hands with her courting beau.
  • Cousin Amy admitted on reality television that her husband had physically abused her already.
  • Jessa Duggar Seewald posted video of her pregnant stomach.
  • Jill Duggar Dillard posted social media photo of folding laundry.

Typical mostly trivial and trite Duggar news, which we will never be covering here. It’s ridiculous.

But the Daily Mail article and news on Toby Willis does beg the question of why TLC seems so eager to provide shows to Quiverfull families that turn out later to be hiding sexual predators.

I leave you with a bit of levity, a meme of Jim Bob Duggar found on Facebook:
