And Fox News is there to distract us from this immorality, this hypocrisy. Instead, Megyn Kelly, Steve Doocy and others tell us that the Duggars are being persecuted by secular liberals who merely hate Christians. Nonsense. In the real world, the Duggars are under fire for being horrible people who have exploited their faith and their celebrity in the name of marginalizing American citizens simply because of who those citizens love, while simultaneously whitewashing a stupendously hideous crime.
Stupendously hideous crime.
Umm, as far as I know, a 14 year old Josh Duggar touched his sisters’ breasts and maybe elsewhere. To the point that they didn’t know he had done. Not that I approve of this sort of behaviour but along that spectrum of playing doctors and nurses, sticking pebbles inside your sister’s genitalia, asking if we can still call him Bruce, to the Holocaust I’d be rather more sparing of the stupendous and the hideous myself.
But then I’m not a foot soldier in America’s culture wars so what do I know?
