Now, as you know, I try to keep serious subject matter like religion and politics off of my blog. For me, serious subject matter is female hair loss, sun safety, my jiggly thighs and belly, cooking, and my life with my Frenchman, Bonaparte! Also serious is the proper application of makeup to enhance the youthful beauty of women over “a certain age”! Oh yeah, and my bitching and whining about my former unemployment status was fodder for entertainment too!
I like to keep it fun, happy, and entertaining–especially at the expense of Bonaparte’s sunbathing!
But, I feel the need to weigh in on my opinions of the incestuous sexual molestation that was carried out some years ago by Josh Duggar to his sisters and a guest of their cult family.
Caveat: Before I go any further, you need to know that I abhor the pedophile priests and feel that the Church did not do enough to put these men of the cloth in jail. I am a lapsed Catholic and lapsed due to my divorce. Yet the Church basically just slapped the hands of the deviant priests. I do love me my Saints, though—and Mary. And especially Joseph—he was a totally stand-up guy to marry a woman who got pregnant without being married!! Can you imagine the stigma back in THOSE days? Ouch! Oh. I also have a love of plaid—and white shirts and blazers! That love stems from years of wearing a uniform to school. Lastly, I think Pope Francis is way cool. He could single-handedly change the Church as we know it and change it for the better! OK I’m done with my caveat. Let us continue…
First of all, and I dunno about you, but as little Catholic kids, we were taught that any parts of your body that were covered by underwear (as in underpants, undershirts, and brassieres) were your private parts! God forbid if you touched any of those parts!!!! You would be deemed “dirty” and would be on that straight path to Hell! God forbid anyone else touched your private parts!! That person would be elevated to “filthy bastid pig” status and would have to answer to higher authorities such as nuns and parents—and would be begging to go to jail after a strict dad or mom or sadistic old-school nun got to them!
Never. Ever. EVER. NEVER meet your comeuppance with an old-school, mean nun! Josh Duggar could have used her as a teacher!
I cannot even think of the consequences if a sibling took the liberty to play around with other siblings’ private parts. They definitely would be “sent away” –most likely by ambulance! And, perhaps a parent or two would be arrested for the bodily harm that they would bestow upon their teen aged child for molesting their younger siblings!
Caught messing around? You’ll be headed to a hospital before jail–and in one of these!
My own mother was so determined to protect my body that she made me wear a Miraculous Medal of Mary around my neck when I entered my teens. She told me if I wore Mary’s medal, and I was out with a boy and we started petting, he would see the medal and immediately stop.
..and I still have my Miraculous Medal!
This is true. I cannot make this up! But my point is that my mother was no dope. She knew that when teens went out on dates, there was a lot more than a simple “side hug” going on. (Side hugs in the world of Duggashian are reserved for engaged couples anything more than a side hug is a sin) My parents didn’t shelter us from social situations. We were taught about solutions and how to handle ourselves.
I’m amazed to think that Jim Bob and Michelle were so enamored of playing around with each other’s private parts that they just didn’t have the time to teach the end results of those play sessions to their own litter offspring. These idiots never taught respect for their daughters’ bodies to their sons!
Instead these two bozos pontificate about “godliness” by making their daughters dress in matronly “modest” clothing. And their brother still managed to find his way up to his sisters’ “origins of the world”!
The only fundamental belief these two bozos have are that money is their god and fame is all they want. They are the worst example of parenting on earth. Check out their smug faces! Ugh!
I would watch “19 Kids and Counting” on an irregular basis. Honestly, I found them fascinating and not in a good way. I always mistrust people who wear their religious ideologies on their sleeves.
These hypocrites claim to live a good “Christian” life. But they don’t. I’ve seen their show when the family went on “vacations” funded by TLC (The Learning Channel aka Touching Little Children). I’ve observed their social behavior. When they went to New York City, the children behaved so rudely and the parents behaved the same way. All displayed judgmental behavior toward New Yorkers—and when they went to a restaurant with food unfamiliar to them (i.e. no Tater Tots were served), they publicly made faces displaying their rude disgust. The parents never making the slightest move to correct their ill-mannered litter of children. Little nuances like that are telling about their true character.
This family, led by the ever-creepy, Jim Bob with the plastic hair, is filled with hate against anyone who does not share their “Christian” way of life. They hate gays, transgenders, transsexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, Democrats and Catholics. Oh and I shudder to imagine what they would think of my Jewish brother-in-law and my nieces and nephew!
They also hate their daughters because if they LOVED their daughters, they would have never stood for the sexual molestation of their daughters by their son, Josh.
These people are also “pro-life” but only while a fetus is in utero. Once the baby is spit out of the womb, then they really don’t care anymore. It’s obvious in the way Michelle *cough* cares for the kids. (The older sisters are responsible for the younger children. The older girls wash, dress, and educate the younger ones.) That is because as soon as a child is born into the Duggar family, the parents run upstairs and play with each other’s private parts. Never to be seen unless the Touching Little Children aka. TLC channel’s crew is around to film them as a family!
Also disturbing is the Duggar fan base. I’m amazed that women, women, are defending the actions of Josh Duggar and are actually praying that their TV show not be cancelled! These fans pray and say that Josh shouldn’t be judged but he should be forgiven because Jesus saves and Jesus loves and Jesus forgives.
And that got me to thinking about Jesus.
My Jesus is a hippie and hipster!
He had long hair, most likely wore Birkenstocks–unless he went to St. Tropez and picked up a pair of Rondini’s! But he was a cool guy. Go-to-Tees made this design for a shirt–many others feel the same way!
My Hippie/Hipster Jesus is a loving guy. He loves gay people and lesbians and bisexuals and transgender and transsexuals. He loves Democrats and Republicans (yes, and he even loves Boehner and Mitch McConnell — ugh, Jesus really?) My Hippie/Hipster Jesus loves non-Christians. I’m pretty sure he even loves Jell-O molds too! But even though my Jesus can forgive, that doesn’t mean the bad, bad souls are going to be able to gain entrance into his heavenly country club! Uh unh. My Jesus is no moron!
My Hipster Jesus also needs glasses–hey, he’s old and needs to see better. But–he’s not mean and accepts everyone. He just knows the difference between those who live a life as humble, kind and generous people who err and those arrogant, self-righteous, sanctimonious people who use him as an excuse to carry out hate and evil!
I can just imagine the scene when Josh Duggar meets his heavenly maker:
Jesus at the welcoming gates. He’s even got a horn section. Will they be playing “Saturday in the Park”?
Jesus: “Hey Josh. Ya know, what you did to your sisters and that family friend was really bad. It was a crime and a violation of human respect. “
Josh Duggar: (with a smirk on his face). “Jesus, it’s ok. I asked for your forgiveness a long time ago. My fan base prayed. It’s cool”.
Jesus: “Josh. I forgive you. But. Well—Josh, I can’t let you in.” “Sorry, you need to be made accountable for your actions” “You seem a bit…well, dude, you seem a bit smug about this”
Josh Duggar: “Listen, it was a bad “season” of life” (shrugs).
Jesus: ” Josh, man, I gotta send you where the sun don’t shine!” “Oh Josh, get that smirk off your face, will ya?”
Josh Duggar: “Listen Jesus, I may have made a few mistakes like being hateful to a few people, but everyone makes mistakes, right?” “I mean, my sisters–they aren’t important” (shrugs again)
Jesus: “Josh, I got lots of gays up here and lesbians and transsexuals and bi’s and Democrats, and Jews and Catholics” “You hate all those kind souls and they’re my peeps!” “During your stay on earth, you really, really tried to persecute many groups.” “I’ll tell ya, we all heard Adolf Hitler’s soul howling with delight at your actions—all the way up here from down in the firing inferno!” “We couldn’t believe old Adolf could be that loud!”
Josh Duggar: ” Jesus, how can I put this.” “I was just playing doctor with my sisters and our friend.” “My parents were too busy worshiping money and fame and were too busy to explain our bodies to us” (chuckles a bit)
Jesus: “Josh, are you that arrogant and self-righteous that you are lying to my face?”
Josh: (fixes his hair and tries to sneak past Jesus into heaven)
Jesus: “Hey man, no way are you getting in here.” “Listen, you’ll be going to the “Evang”hell”ical section down there.” ” You’ll have plenty of jurisdictions to carry out to keep you busy.” ” You will be seated at the pedophile priest table at the grill for dinner and will have a nice hot coffee with the sexual molesters”. You’re gonna be a popular guy Joshie.”
Josh: (pointing a finger at Jesus while checking out his Iphone) “You’ll be sorry for this Jesus! ” “My fans love me”
Yup, Jesus, you’ll be sorry you sent me elsewhere. Look how popular I am! My Iphone proves it!
Jesus: “Um. No I won’t”. “Hey, give Jim Bob and Michelle a nice big “Hi” from your sisters!” “Safe travel’s dude!” “Your fans are all waiting for you!”
Hey Joshie. No amount of sunscreen will help you where you’re going!
And that’s how I imagine it! Joshie’s final judgement!
I’m hoping TLC does good and never airs another episode of “19 Kids and Counting”. I also hope there are no plans to ever have this hypocritical family on air again. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and these opinions are mine. You may or may not agree, but I have no tolerance for molestation of any kind.
Note to other countries: We Americans are all NOT like this pig. Thank you!
I’ve plenty more to say on this subject but I need to stop now. Here’s a song that Josh should have listened to. If he did, perhaps his hands would have stayed off his sisters and he would have taken care of himself.
Listen—have a great weekend! XOXOXOXOX!
Divinyls. ” I Touch Myself”. Just for you Joshie!
