Josh Duggar’s arrest

Josh Duggar’s arrest

Josh Duggar seemed to have it all.

However, the star of the TLC series "19 Kids and Counting" saw his show canceled after news broke that he had molested multiple underage girls over the course of his life. He was then arrested on federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography in 2021.

Allie Beth Stuckey sat down with his sister Jinger Duggar Vuolo and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, who opened up about what life has been like since these revelations about Jinger’s brother came to light.

Jinger says, “In that time when my brother was about to be arrested, I was looking at all of this and I was thinking, man, the glory of God is just, it’s going to be dragged through the dirt,” all because her brother claimed to be a Christian.

“I can’t imagine how difficult that must have been to see your brother, a family member, be convicted of something that egregious,” Allie responds.

Despite the terrible revelations, Allie has an idea of what part of the problem may be.

In purity culture, which the Duggar family had embraced, Allie believes that “a lack of vulnerability and honesty about one’s struggles or desires of whatever it is — that does kind of push people further into darkness and hiding.”

“So, rather than someone being comfortable with saying, ‘Well, you know, I’m being tempted to sin in this way and I don’t want to,’ you would hide it maybe because you don’t even want to admit … that you’re tempted in any way, and that just kind of, it pushes people.”
