In another depraved example of conservative “Christians” defending and making excuses for child molester Josh Duggar, a Texas pastor’s wife claimed that he was merely “playing doctor” with his sleeping sisters.
Carrie Hurd and her husband Pastor Patrick Hurd are card-carrying members of the Quiverfull movement and they have 11 children of their own to prove it.
In response to Vyckie Garrison, an outspoken critic of Quiverfull, Carrie Hurd used her husband’s Facebook page to defend Josh Duggar and actually suggested that the girls he molested were somehow to blame for his sickening actions.
“Vyckie, this is actually Pat’s wife, Carrie. You women want parity in the board room and you want equal wages all the way up the ladder, but when it comes to taking responsibility and being equal in other areas, it is always the man’s fault or responsibility. How many women bait, hit first, but are seldom arrested for abuse………….?”
Hurd then excused Duggar’s crimes and behavior as a mere game of “playing doctor” and claimed Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did the right thing by covering up for their son.
“When I was a kid, it was often called “playing doctor”, there were just as many girls initiating this kind of behavior as boys. Most of those never went on to perp horrible things. The Duggers, who I have never watched–am not a fan, did it properly and the 14 year old boy should probably be left alone to live a good life, just like girls who do the same thing.”
Hurd concluded her rant by referring to Garrison as a troll and told her to go fight ISIS if she really opposes mistreatment of women and girls.
“You troll the news for any little Christian misbehavior. Get a life! Go to Iraq and fight ISIS if you are seriously worried about women being treated well by men and society.”
Here’s a screenshot of Garrison’s post relaying Hurd’s message via Facebook.
The Duggar child molestation scandal has already led to TLC kicking “19 Kids and Counting” off the air. And Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has jumped to Duggar’s defense on his own Facebook page. Even a judge Huckabee appointed as Governor of Arkansas ordered Josh Duggar’s police record be destroyed.
Since the scandal became public, conservative “Christians” have circled the wagons to protect one of their own from facing the consequences of his actions and hypocrisy.
And this latest revisionist account of what happened is just another attempt to cover up Dugger’s crimes. This is just another example of how desperate conservative “Christians” are to keep the public from seeing them as the sick hypocrites they really are under all that dogma.
