In a TLC publicity still from “19 Kids and Counting,” Josh Duggar and his wife react to news that their due baby will be a girl.
People reports that Josh Duggar, his wife Anna, and his parents Jim Bob and Michelle are now doing a media tour responding to reports that Josh is accused of molesting five underage girls as a teen. Josh is a son in the large conservative Christian family featured in the reality show "19 Kids and Counting," on The Learning Channel.
"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," Josh, 27, told People in a statement.
"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. His family supports him, People reports.
The Family Research Council is an American conservative Christian anti-gay hate group and lobbying organization formed in the early 1980s by James Dobson, Gary Bauer, Tony Perkins, and George Alan Rekers.
Here are the organization's thoughts on being queer: "homosexual conduct is harmful to the persons who engage in it and to society at large, and can never be affirmed" and it is "by definition unnatural, and as such is associated with negative physical and psychological health effects... there is no convincing evidence that a homosexual identity is ever something genetic or inborn."
What a bunch of sickos.
