Josh Duggar Admits Cheating: I Have Been the Biggest Hypocrite Ever!
Josh Duggar is coming clean about cheating on his wife after it was discovered that he had two subscriptions to Ashley Madison, a website designed for people wanted to cheat discreetly. While he didn’t mention the site specifically, he did acknowledge the hypocrisy of his actions.
His wife has remained mum though is parents Michelle and Jim Bob released their own statement saying:
Please see the statement below from our son Josh regarding recent media stories about him. When we learned of this late last night our hearts were broken. As we continue to place our trust in God we ask for your prayers for Josh, Anna, our grandchildren and our entire family.
Josh expressed remorse and of course talking about his faith and prayers, things he must have forgotten when he was allowing his wife and her family members to support him through the scandal that caused TMC to cancel his family’s reality show 19 Kids and Counting. Josh’s statement:
I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this came a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.
I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.
I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.
The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.
As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose our actions, be we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.
I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my wife Anna and our family during this time.
Basically what Josh is saying that he has been a hypocrite. What made him come out now other than Ashley Madison getting hacked and his information made available to the media. When he was on his apology tour for molesting his sisters he spoke about becoming a better man when the reality was that he was cheating on his wife.
There was no mention of this to Megyn Kelly during her softball interview of his parents or sisters. Josh allowed his wife and her family to come to his defense as they tried to save their reality show. If there was ever a time Josh should have come clean it was then. Instead he chose to preach to the world about God, agains same-sex marriage, and sin. Is hypocrite a strong enough word to describe what he is?
There is no word on whether or not his wife Anna has had enough and will leave him. She only recently gave birth to their fourth child. They have said in the past that they do not believe in birth control and plan to have as many children as “God gives them,” begging the question of whether or not Josh used protection while cheating on his devoted wife.
Did his belief in abstaining from birth control extend to his mistresses? What if God chose for him and his mistresses to have children too? And what about STD’s? Will Anna ask those questions or will she be scouring the Bible with her family hoping to find a way to forgive Josh and paint him as one of God’s fallen children?
