My good friend Amanda Pifer, who has some experience in and with the Quiverfull / homeschooling movement, decided she had some things to say about the ongoing Josh Duggar fiasco, who was recently back in the news for having been outed in the Ashley Madison leak. She let loose today on Facebook, and her words were so insightful, I asked if I could share them on my blog.
Here they are…
Ok guys, I think we can all agree that Josh Duggar has made some pretty bad choices in his life. No, I am not happy about it, but I am also not even slightly surprised. Bad stuff was (and is) happening, whether everybody on Facebook knew about it or not.
But here’s the thing, I’m quite sure that Josh still has more life challenges that we don’t know about. It’s not as easy as “he’s a pedophile” or “he’s a cheater,” there’s more going on there, whether we can see it or not. I’m also willing to bet all the money I have that he is not the only one of his siblings who are going to have life-shattering problems — whether public or, hopefully, private. There is still more going on than meets the eye.
