Ever wonder what pictures Josh Duggar used to lure women to his Ashley Madison profile? Now’s your chance to find out; the photographs have been leaked, and, well — yeah.
“The biggest hypocrite ever”
Duggar was riding high until In-Touch, a tabloid newspaper, broke the story of him molesting his sisters and a family friend while he was a teenager.
That wasn’t enough to break through to his rabid fan base, though; if I learned anything from that whole mess, it’s that conservative Christians are a-okay with molesting one’s relatives. In fact, they’ll do everything they can to hand wave the problem away. From Fox News spending less than 2 minutes on the coverage to Mike Huckabee riding to his defense, the right-wing left me with the impression that it was perfectly acceptable to molest one’s sisters, so long as you love Jesus.
Duggar weathered it about as well as you might expect, but there was another shock right around the corner.
In August, a data leak proved that cheating website Ashley Madison was Christian Mingle’s largest competitor. And while most of the women on the site were fake, the men weren’t — and among them was none other than Josh Duggar, Mr. Family Values himself.
Molesting your younger sister and a family friend are okay with right-wing Christians, but a (semi-)consensual affair with another adult is the straw that broke the camel’s back. The right-dropped Duggar like four-year-old unwashed socks and it left his family “shocked and broken and furious.”
While Gawker was able to confirm Duggar had two paid accounts, the profile pictures were absent at the time.
But not anymore. Behold:
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally impressed. Absolutely so. Beyond words, even.
At least he used real photos of himself, albeit ones slightly obscured. That’s more than can be said for his alleged OK-Cupid profile.
So, there’s a moral in here somewhere — something about not being so hung over on your own self-righteousness, but I just can’t get over that Gawd-awful ugly mask. It’s so hideous.
