If The Learning Channel canceled Honey Boo-boo over her mother dating a child molester – the network can’t possibly justify keeping The Duggars after Josh Duggar’s child molestation charges…


People Magazine just published this about the Duggars…


When news broke that the Duggars’ hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting had been officially canceled, no one was more disappointed than the family, a source who has worked closely with them tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

The cancellation came two months after a 2006 police report surfaced revealing that Josh Duggar had been accused at age 14 of molesting five underage girls – including two of his sisters, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald. (He apologized and said he had “acted inexcusably” after the report became public.)

The source says the evangelical Christian family, who often discussed their religious faith on their TLC show, is “heartbroken that they’ve now lost that platform.”

“The Duggars want to return to TV because they truly believe it was part of God’s plan for them to spread the word about their faith,” the source says.



Josh admitted to molesting five underage girls when he was also underage but in a shocking twist, one of the non-family victims is planning to file a civil lawsuit against Josh! This means Josh may have to go to court and face his victim and perhaps new information will come forward.

Josh Duggar‘s worst nightmare is becoming a reality. Just when he thought he was able to put the molestation scandal behind him, the TLC star may have to face off in court with one of the women he molested when they were both teenagers. The victim is reportedly is very upset that she has to relive the horrible events that took place at the hands of Josh and is hurt that his family is attempting to minimize the pain he put her through. This lawsuit could also mean that Josh, 27, may take the stand and reveal details about the molestations that he’s been trying to cover up!


An insider tells InTouch that Josh and his parents Jim Bob and Michelle will be “forced to reveal in court all the details about the scandal they have been covering up,” according to the magazine. “I have heard a [nonfamily] victim is preparing to sue. This whole sordid affair with Josh rattled a lot of people, including the victim, who has to relive this nightmare all over again after watching Josh’s parents go on TV and whitewash what happened.”
his is reference to Josh’s parents and sisters, Jessa and Jill Duggar, appearing on Fox News and urging the public to move past the scandal since they claim to have done so themselves. “It’s not uncommon for a victim to come forward years after the abuse has taken place,” the insider continued. “She may have repressed it or processed it in her own way, but Josh’s public admission that he did something wrong — and how Jim Bob and Michelle handled everything on TV — surely had to affect her.”

The report goes on to say that the Duggars will not be able to invoke the Fifth Amendment  because the criminal statute of limitations has expired. “Josh and his parents will be deposed and Jim Bob and Michelle will be asked about these safeguards that they say were in place to protect their daughters from Josh,” attorney Jason Files tells InTouch. Josh and his family will also have to explain when and how Josh got counseling, which church elders knew about the molestation and they will have to discuss what happened when they were initially investigated.

A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Josh is getting a ton of support from his family and friends right now and isn’t considering doing anything drastic to harm himself despite the stress he is under: “He is getting through this with the help of friends and family, but killing himself has never crossed his mind. He sure as hell is feeling the pressure of the situation but physical harm is not the end game.”

On New Year’s Eve, 2014, SyndicatedNews.NET published an article about Michelle Duggar’s hypocrisy because her sister, Evelyn Ruark is a 63-year-old lesbian who lives with her partner of many years, Sharon Callahan in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Michelle, the ardent Christian values proponent and Reality TV Star enjoys looking down her nose as she quotes Biblical scripture to slight people. She has a wonderful knack for identifying twigs in others’ eyes but doesn’t see the large oak growing out of her own.

She demonstrates no love, compassion or tolerance for homosexuality in any form in spite of her sister living an openly gay lifestyle.

Her son Josh Duggars’ teenaged sex-capade documents arrived to SyndicatedNews by mail several years ago. We read them carefully, re-read them, then put them away. We could have used them to create a fuss but we did not. We did however report them to the usual 800 numbers related to child safety. We assumed but did not know for certain that others were advised as well. Oprah Winfrey was also notified and she made it a point to contact the authorities.

At the time, Josh was trying to gain air time and build a career for himself and his father was doing everything he could to get and keep the Duggars on TV.

Soon, Josh started working with the Family Research Council. Why wasn’t it a story then?

Because other than proving that the family’s patriarch, Jim Bob Duggar had achieved a successful orgasm each time he knocked up his clearly challenged wife, a bunch of hypocrite fundamentalists was not an appealing story.

I found the adults (Jim Bob and Michelle) an obnoxious couple. Duggar senior couldn’t possibly make enough money to support his family were it not for a reality show and I was certain that Josh’s sex-capade reports were in circulation.

At the time, I thought it would be a few weeks before the sham exploded. Oprah Winfrey received the same information about the same time that I did. Not only did she refuse to feature The Duggars on her show once she was tipped off – but she too turned them into the authorities. I have since learned that several organizations that received those documents contacted the authorities.

Jim Bob told police in 2006 that when Josh returned home in 2003, Jim Bob, accompanied by some of his church elders, took Josh to Arkansas State Trooper, Jim Hutchens. Jim Bob knew Hutchens personally. Hutchens did not take any official action and instead gave Josh a “very stern talk.” Hutchens is currently serving a 56-year prison sentence for child pornography. He took no action on the Duggar case.

Josh Duggar Police Report for Sexual Misconduct by SyndicatedNews

Jim Bob Duggar waited more than a year after his son, Josh, confessed to sexually molesting several female minors before contacting police, In Touch Magazine is reporting this exclusively, based on information contained in the official police report which they sent for thus have annoyingly marked every page with their own logo.

They may have edited their website but last year, the Duggars posted a photo captioned, “Michelle with her siblings – Evelyn Ruark, Freda Benderman, Garrett Ruark, Cathy Arnold & Pamela Peters – Spring 2011.”  It is the only photo of Evelyn. A search of the site produced no other mention of her at all.

In fact, aside from a reported appearance on an earlier episode, the Duggars and Evelyn Ruark seem to have virtually no public appearances or commentary about each other.
But Ruark’s partner, Sharon Callahan, 52 says that the couple was and continue to worry about Michelle.  Why? Because they and many others whom know the Duggars believed that the Duggars subscribe to the beliefs of the Quiverfull Movement, a small conservative evangelical often-Protestant sect found mostly in the U.S.Quiverfull adherents belief in using absolutely no form of birth control, including family planning – hence, probably, the “19 and counting.


The Duggars, however, have stated that they are not associated with Quiverfull. “We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God’s Word and apply it to our lives.”
Those who subscribe to Quiverfull also believe that the role of a woman is as a mother, child-bearer, and servant to her husband.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3–5

But Michelle’s sister’s gay partner of many years, Sharon Callahan believes they are members of the Quiverfull sect.

And it’s no wonder then that Radar reports what Sharon told the National Enquirer several years ago, “We are worried about them,” and that they “have often thought that QuiverFull is a cult.”

“It appears to be brainwashing to me,” she added.

Meanwhile, Josh Duggar, who until his resignation this week was the head of Family Research Council Action, recently spoke of his Aunt Evelyn being a lesbian.

“I have an aunt who has chosen to live that life and I love my aunt. I think she is an amazing person,” he told listeners— before assuring fans that she also is opposed to gay marriage. “She believes that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

Josh also recently held a “Rally for True Marriage” in Arkansas. Here’s a short clip from the rally:


As for the Duggar couple, they’re going to have to learn to accommodate their personal theologies with the ability to get along with society. It’s very easy to preach a fundamentalist position when you’re surrounded by young people who are under your tutelage and can’t voice a differing opinion.

It’s a totally different situation when you’re preaching your faith in a sea of day-to-day citizens that don’t share the same viewpoints and are not under your control.

Bigotry of any kind, against any minority will bring down the Duggars. And displaying bigotry against the gay community now that it’s publicly known that Michelle’s sister is a lesbian will most certainly backfire.

This is the time to apply all that Christian charity the Duggars preach about to the gay community. If Pope Francis can have love and compassion for the gay community, who are we to have our noses in the air?


Amy Duggar has acknowledged the fact that her parents were unwed when she was born.

“The tabloids are telling the truth, my mom and dad did have me out of wedlock. Just because we are Christians doesn’t make us perfect, it just makes us forgiven,” she captioned a photo of herself with her parents Deanna Duggar and Terry Jordan on Instagram on January 26. “Just because I share the Duggar name doesn’t mean my life is perfect!”

Amy, 28, is a cousin of the Duggar family from “19 Kids and Counting.” Her mom, Deanna, is sisters with Duggar patriarch Jim Bob.

Amy often appears on the TLC show. Her pursuit of a country music career even had its own storyline.

“God knew my uncle would have a hit show and that somehow I would be apart of it. He knew my parents story would be told. How amazing is that?! Your testimony is everything. Everyone struggles, and sins differently. but Jesus paid it all!!” she continued in her post.

Earlier in January, members of the Duggar family – including Jim Bob and Michelle – participated in March for Life in Little Rock, Ark., to support their pro-life beliefs.

Amy went on to express in her post that she is “grateful” her mom did not terminate her pregnancy, although she was not wed.

“I’m extremely grateful to my mom for choosing to give me life. I’m sure she was scared, young, ridiculed, and felt ashamed,” Amy wrote. “God’s grace covered it though! She’s beautiful inside and out. I’m also grateful that I have such an awesome relationship with my dad! Seriously he’s the greatest!”

On January 29, Amy Instagrammed a selfie with her dad to wish him a happy birthday.

Years ago, I gave Josh Duggar a pass but it did not matter because InTouch Magazine did not.


Josh Duggar’s confession:

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”



Josh has resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the accusations becoming public, but his family has stood behind him.

“Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives,” Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle, 48, said in a joint statement. “When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before.”

Their statement continues, “Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family. We have challenges and struggles every day. It is one of the reasons we treasure our faith so much because God’s kindness and goodness and forgiveness are extended to us – even though we are so undeserving. We hope somehow the story of our journey – the good times and the difficult times – cause you to see the kindness of God and learn that He can bring you through anything.”

And Josh’s wife Anna, 26, says she has remained supportive of her husband – even after he confessed his “past teenage mistakes” two years before he proposed marriage.

“I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock,” she says. “When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes. I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was – even very difficult past mistakes.”

But Anna said she had confidence that the counseling her husband received “changed his life.”

“He continued to do what he was taught. [I know] who Josh really is – someone who had gone down a wrong path and had humbled himself before God and those whom he had offended,” she says. “Someone who had received the help needed to change the direction of his life and do what is right.”

And for his part, Josh says he continues living with regret.

“I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions,” says Josh. “I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”

The Learning Channel executives have made their final decision. As they cannot support Honey Booboo’s mother dating the man that sexually molested her eldest daughter, they certainly cannot stand behind The Duggars.

All able bodied members of both families will now have to go out and work to earn a living like the rest of their audiences do every day!

Both shows have been permanently canceled.
