The hits keep on coming for Josh Duggar. The Ashley Madison hack revealed that Duggar purchased two accounts with the infidelity website as recently as 2013, reported Talking Points Memo.
In the aftermath, Duggar released a statement admitting that he’s the “biggest hypocrite ever” because he cheated on his wife, and is atticked to pornography. Josh Duggar passed himself off as the bastion of Christian faith and family values. However, he was found to have molested several young girls in his youth, and to have cheated on his wife. Duggar family values have flatlined.
Duggar was a lobbyist with the Family Research Council, a group that promotes anti-gay policies and “traditional” marriage.
Here’s the full statement. He’s only sorry that he got caught.
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 became 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 to our actions, but 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 precious wife Anna and our family during this time.
