We’re All Like Josh Duggar

Being an indebted “sinner saved by grace” myself, when a person repents and comes clean it’s my Christian duty to offer the same kind of forgiveness that was extended toward me. That is exactly why, when the Josh Duggar child sexual molestation story broke, I chose to defend him.

At the time I felt that the sex-obsessed left was demonizing Josh for participating in behavior that, had it been anyone else, they would make light of. Moreover, from the tenor of the accusations it just seemed like antipathy for Christian conviction was at the root of the left looking for an excuse to humiliate the entire Duggar family, embarrass his sisters, and paint Josh’s parents as ultra-conservative fundamentalist criminals.

One other reason I defended Josh was because I was impressed that he was not making excuses for indefensible behavior. He confessed, and seemed willing to suffer the consequences for wrong actions.

Now I come to find out that my discernment was wrong.

While Josh was feigning repentance and admitting to hypocrisy, he knew that in addition to porn and pubescent fondling he was paying to have adulterous sex with a porn star who now claims she was “traumatized” and is publicly describing having multiple “rough sex” with Duggar for $1,500 per romp.

My problem now is that when the Duggar molestation story broke, Josh knew that his offenses went deeper than the original accusation that at 14-years-old he fondled the breasts of his friends and his sisters. Yet amid the controversy he stood by and allowed honest people to stand up for him, knowingly allowing his defenders to put their own reputations on the line.

In the Scripture that Josh Duggar’s faith-oriented family holds near and dear, Jesus warns in Luke 12:3 “What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.” 

Simply put, despite the fact that Josh Duggar deceived all of us — which is what he did — he is not alone.

Duggar is one among the ranks of many having what they thought was a secret publicly exposed.

Currently, dirty politicians like Hillary Clinton, abortionists/flesh peddlers like Planned Parenthood, and all the other clandestine Ashley Madison subscribers are having proclaimed from the rooftops what they thought would remain in the dark.

And the truth is that although Josh Duggar should apologize to those who protected him, in God’s eyes what he’s done is no different than the immoral things the rest of us do.

Lest we behave like those who were ready to stone the adulterous woman, after we get past Josh making a fool out of some of us it would be best to drop our stones and, before walking away, admit that our fleshly nature tends toward darkness and that we, like Josh, are also attracted to wanton carnality.

In Josh’s case, his downward spiral began when he took the bait and got hooked on pornography which, as it turns out, is a kind of “gateway drug” to adultery.

A pornography addiction is what led Josh to eventually stalk porn star Danica Dillon all the way to a Philadelphia strip club. Duggar tracked down Danica, aka Ashley Lewis, and shelled out big ‘reality TV’ bucks to live out a perverted fantasy with a clearly troubled woman.

Now, a shameless Danica, after having sex twice with someone else’s husband, feels qualified to moralize about how Duggar’s wife should respond. Danica said that she hopes Anna “leaves him… takes his children away from him and leaves him a lonely, bitter man.”

Didn’t Miss Ashley willingly prostitute herself and participate in hurting Anna Duggar? And now, after pocketing Josh Duggar’s cash, a porn star is of the opinion that Josh “doesn’t deserve happiness?”


Nonetheless, despite things like Duggar’s lack of morality and his dishonesty toward those who originally stuck up for him, or the fact that he knowingly broke the heart of his longsuffering wife who remains committed to their marriage, Josh Duggar is more to be pitied than censured.

And after all is said and done, the hope is that the father of four receives treatment for his sex addiction, learns how to live fully in the light, and confesses unequivocally to the double life he has been leading for years.

In the meantime, for Josh, Danica Dillon, Hillary Clinton, the barbarians at Planned Parenthood, and the Ashley Madison perpetrators, as well as all the rest of us, my prayer is that the exposition of sin will ultimately draw us toward repentance, so that what started out as humiliation is eventually seen as a loving extension of God’s grace.

Is Newt Gingrich the Republican Party’s King David?

Remember King David?  David was God’s man of faith and power: a psalmist, a great leader, and a man after “God’s own heart.”  Unfortunately, David had issues with temptation, lust, adultery and murder.  Sound familiar?

Now the Republican Party is grappling with similar issues concerning a conservative candidate who, if he had comported himself in his personal life in a manner similar to progressive Republican Mitt Romney, we wouldn’t be having discussions about what happened 20 years ago.

But here we are, and Newton Leroy McPherson, aka Newt Gingrich, is a man with David-like qualities, likely the best representative for what the conservative wing of the Republican Party stands for, and the most likely able to slay a Goliath named Obama.

The Republican Party is desperate to find a candidate that can trounce Obama and dial back the country to its more Reaganesque past, thus Newt Gingrich is a candidate on the rise.  If Newt is taken down, it will be because when he wasn’t about the business of finding “American Solutions,” he spent too much time like King David, walking on rooftops and gazing upon Bathshebas in or around the halls of Congress.

Despite his brilliance, Newt’s one drawback is past appreciation for women who weren’t his wife. Gingrich is guilty of what King David did, and not once, but twice.  The former speaker’s ex-wives paid for it, and his grown daughters, regardless of what they say, surely carry the pain of their father’s betrayals.

Repentance or no repentance, conversion or not, like a pebble being thrown into a pool of water, even years later adultery has ongoing repercussions.  All American voters will be affected if Newt is Herman Cain-ed and shoved out of the running because of a salivating media who blithely excused Bill Clinton’s peccadilloes, but are more than willing to crucify Mr. Gingrich for his past mistakes.

Jackie Battley Gingrich was Newt’s first wife of 19 years.  Infamously, the Congressman surprised her while she was recovering in a hospital after surgery to remove a potentially cancerous tumor by asking her for a divorce.

At the time, Newt was anxious to be unattached from the mother of his children because he admittedly was seeing 28-year-old congressional aide Marianne Ginther Gingrich.  They married six months after his divorce from Jackie was finalized.

Nineteen years after Newt married Marianne, Callista became the third Mrs. Gingrich, and the duo have been gloriously joined at the hip now for 12 years. Question: What exactly was Gingrich thinking when he criticized Bill Clinton for committing adultery with Monica Lewinsky when he himself was married to Marianne and carrying on with a woman 23 years his junior?

With that in mind, until that 19-year mark comes and goes, the present Mrs. Gingrich shouldn’t get too comfortable.

And the Lord said to David: “You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.” Thus, twenty-odd years later, those initial adulterous ripples have made contact with Newt’s aspirations to become President of the United States, and have grown into waves smashing with great force against the side of his campaign.

Despite his admitted repentance and ability to explain his way out of any situation, Newt is presently being sucked into a vortex of disgrace. Why? Because there are four people involved in a twenty-year-old scandal: three wives – two of whom are former mistresses – and the perpetually married Mr. Gingrich.

Based on his own admission, we know that the presidential hopeful cheated on his two ex-wives with two congressional aides, both of whom he eventually married. That means at the bare minimum we have three people with a history of being less than truthful.

There’s Newt, who may be a great debater, historian, and politician, but who’s past track record in the veracity department does leave a lot to be desired.  Then there’s Marianne Ginther Gingrich, second wife/woman scorned.  Marianne’s tawdry story may or may not be true, because let’s face it – when Ms. Ginther was a congressional aide she had no problem skulking about with a married man.

And let’s not forget the perfectly-coifed Callista who, besides carrying on with another woman’s husband, is also a published author, player of the French horn, singer in the choir at the Basilica of the National Shrine, and creator of Ellis the Elephant. First lady hopeful Callista followed in Marianne’s footsteps and did to Marianne what Marianne did to Jackie.

Even still, like King David, Gingrich does have the potential to be a great leader.  The American people would benefit greatly with Newt as president, but if what happened to Herman Cain – with a lot less evidence – is any example, it remains to be seen whether Newt’s dream will ever come to pass.

A modern day reenactment of an ancient king’s fall from grace may or may not end up being Newt Gingrich’s downfall. Unlike King David, who slew Uriah to cover his sin, thankfully in Newt’s case no one lost their life in the literal sense.  However, if the resurrected scandal sticks, conservatives who have been faithful to Newt and the principles he espouses could be in for a political death of epic proportions.

Pitt Pulls the Switch on BP

Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

Brad Pitt is indignant about injustice.  So much so that the Hollywood icon/prolific accommodator of Angelina Jolie’s obsessive-compulsive reproduction disorder has stepped forward to speak on behalf of exacting justice against those who’ve wronged Mother Earth.

The Hollywood actor said he would “consider the death penalty for those to blame for the ruptured well that gushed millions of gallons of oil into the ocean.” When asked about the “people responsible for the crisis, the ‘Inglourious Basterds’ star said: ‘I was never for the death penalty before – I am willing to look at it again.'”

Bastian of moral authority Brad Pitt, who left his wife to cavort with a notorious seductress, isn’t recommending the death penalty for mass murderers, rapists or child molesters, and certainly not adulterers, but rather for BP executives for accidental oilrig explosions in the Gulf of Mexico.

If anyone possesses the right to express moral indignation, Brad Pitt sure does. Brad Pitt decided to “Make It Right” in New Orleans after doing his wife of five years wrong by abandoning her for a sultry mistress. “Mr. Pitt, 46, spearheaded the ‘Make it Right’ project to build 150 affordable and sustainable homes in one of the areas of New Orleans that was worst hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.”

Mr. Pitt’s provocative “fry the inglourious basterds” remarks were revealed as his life partner and mother to three biological and three adopted children, Angelina Jolie, was making a “goodwill visit to Sarajevo, Bosnia.”  What better way to remediate a sullied reputation than to portray yourself as a benevolent ambassador, environmental green advocate or a spokesperson indicting and sentencing corporate oil magnates to the gallows.

Angelina traveled to Bosnia to speak to “government officials about possible education programs to help resettle refugees still homeless, following the country’s civil war.”  Pitt should have gone with Angie to propose a Bosnian “Make it Right” project.  The trip could have been called “Infidelity Enterprises,” where shameless adulterers build homes for homeless Bosnians.

According to Ivy-cap-wearing Pitt, the answer to ensure accidents like the Deepwater Horizon oilrig explosion never scourge the earth again is to make an example of BP executives by administering lethal injections. Pitt is obviously of the mind that exacting the death penalty on a criminal of Tony Hayward’sstature ensures similar tragedies are prevented from reoccurring.

Nothing deters oilrigs from exploding more effectively than exercising the death penalty on a few key oil executives.

Film director Spike Lee recently completed a film entitled, “If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.” In the documentary Brad “emerges a hero” for his humanitarian house building efforts. The film was supposed to end “on a positive note with the New Orleans American Football team winning the Super Bowl.”  However, the ending was changed to incorporate the premeditated BP oilrig explosion.

Mr. Spike “Do the Right Thing” Lee decided oil-soaked pelicans and oil threading through the Gulf was too important to leave out of the exposé so the director changed the ending to include British Petroleum’s deadly crimes.

With any luck, a man with Brad Pitt’s Congressional clout could potentially convince the federal government to try and execute BP executives.  Heck, the actor was able to convince America he was Jesse James. Then Spike can edit the film and splice into the ending that righteous defender-of-Mother-Earth, Brad Pitt, throwing the switch on the guilty so that “If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise,” can conclude on an upbeat note as originally planned.

Grubby and the Tiger


Tiger Update:  “Tiger you are a real animal!

Tiger Woods is a cad.  He is a lying, cheating, fraud who promoted himself to be something he was not.  The Colgate smile, the preppy dress and the golf cap, even being on the #10 highest rated Wheaties cereal box can no longer disguise the base nature of a man who broke a sacred covenant with his wife and his children.  All the money in the world cannot redeem his desecrated reputation.

Tiger discredited those he endorses and let down a nation who admires his accomplishments.  As a role model for excellence and focus, Tiger Woods has taught children another disillusioning lesson that the wholesome guy in the poster on the wall isn’t all he’s cracked up to be.

According to Adultery: Statistics on Cheating Spouses…60-70 percent of adultery victims are women while 30-40 percent of adultery victims are men.” And women are to blame…that’s right women have the power to put an end to adultery by refusing to entertain a relationship with married philanderers, because “boys will be boys.” Yet, truth is It takes two to tango, or, in this case mambo.  The Clinton’s and the Tiger Woods of the world wouldn’t be able to cheat if women refused to canoodle with another women’s husband?

Christina Hoff Sommers of the American Enterprise Institute claims, “There is voluminous literature documenting womens greater capacity for care and empathy.” Most adultery discussion revolves around the fact men cheat on wives.  Nevertheless, the situation doesn’t  bode  well for women exhibiting “care and empathy” for other women. If females were really softhearted beings who identify closely with the feelings of others, the Jaime Grubbs of the world would tell men like Tiger to take his number one wood and tee off to another green.

For three years, Ms. Grubbs (or Grubby whichever you prefer) was so busy sexting Tiger she had no time to take into consideration Elin Nordegren, who had just given birth to two of Woods’ babies?  Now splashing her sexuality all over the tabloids Grubby is making public that the guy on the Wheaties box requested her to “Send him something very naughty…Go to the bathroom and take [a picture],” which is something that drove Elin to attack Tiger with a nine-iron.

Tiger is lucky his lovely Swedish wife chased him with a golf club and didn’t put a Swedish pike hook in his lying, cheating ass.

When riding around in Tigers big, black Escalade did Grubby happen to notice toddler Sam Alexis or infant Charlie Axel’s car seats in the back?  How about a stray pacifier or a rattle?  None of that mattered to the sex oozing 24 year old?  Grubbs is proudly part of the female sex that Charles Darwin believed differs, “…from man…chiefly in her greater tenderness and less selfishness.”  Charlie D. had some strange theories, but this one is equally bogus because, if only 30% of the married population hasn’t experienced adultery, then a whole lot of women are messing around with someone else’s husband, which is neither kindhearted, nor generous.

How about Kalika Moquin another giving, compassionate woman who cares for others by bedding husbands and fathers in surreptitious locations? Doing what women do best, Kalika showered feminine kindness on Tiger Woods because he claimed “He wasn’t happy in his marriage or his home life and there was so much pressure on him.

Kalika, the pressure releaser, “…strongly identifies with others and has a lively sense of their needs and feelings.” Being part of the “generous sex” Moquin, a Vegas club manager, is “…in a better psychological position to help…caring more does seem to entail giving more,” which, based on the reports in the press, Kalika gave and gave and gave, “hooking up a bunch of times” with a wedded Tiger.

The only woman showing empathy and compassion for the situation seems to be Hamptons Diva,” Rachel Uchitel. The kindly Rachel, had a press conference scheduled to admit to a relationship with Woods and suddenly cancelled.  Were her actions out of love and fidelity, or based on Tiger paying her large sums of money to shut her celebrity seducing yapper?

Researchers Eckel and Grossman say that, “Men are far more trusting and cooperative” and “…are known to be greater risk takers than women.”  So a smitten Tiger Woods reached out to one of his mistresses asking her to do him another type of huge favor. “I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. Just have it as a number on the voice mail. You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. Bye.”

What was Tiger thinking, that a woman who sleeps with another woman’s husband is somehow trustworthy?  Didn’t the Tiger know that Jamie now feels honesty is the best policy and has come clean on the cover of every tabloid magazine in the nation? A cheating Tiger Woods has found out that mistresses aren’t reliable, honest women. What a surprise!

Tiger didn’t exactly approach the bastion of morality  in The Bank three years ago.  Obviously, Jaime Grubbs must have known that Tiger’s wife gave birth to their daughter a few months after the, “clandestine on-and-off affair” began; yet that didn’t dampen her ardor or ambition in the relationship with Elin’s husband and Sam and Charlies Dad.  Now, Tiger expects Grubby to honor the request for secrecy?  Tiger put his hand in a bear trap–it snapped…oh well.

Let’s not forget that women are solely responsible for the slaughter of 60 million unborn children.  So why should the survival or destruction of someone’s marriage be an issue to the murderous brood?

Tiger Woods is a boorish scoundrel…that said, women are not the empathetic sex they purport themselves to be.  Many are self-seeking, ruthless seductresses with only themselves in mind. If women showed they cared by rebuffing married men–adultery wouldn’t exist and we wouldn’t be having this conversation. The tango takes two, the mambo is a couple’s dance…Tiger could have danced alone or gone home.

Sistas, Jaime Grubb, Jamie Jungers, Rachel Uchitel, and Kalika Moquin found out that Tiger not only cheated on Elin, but also was simultaneously cheating on each one of them.  How does it feel ladies?

After going public with the pledge of shame Jaime Grubbs, is now saying, “I hope [Tiger] can forgive me for doing this and I know he probably can’t…whatever happens with Elin, I hope Tiger and I can reconnect and remain good friends.”  How touching, Grubby wants to stay “friends.”  Group hug!
