The Duggars, who quickly and easily forgave oldest son Josh for molesting his sisters, are not so quick to forgive him for cheating on his wife and loving porn.
A source within the Duggar family told Entertainment Tonight that Josh is still being shut out of the family after admitting to cheating on his wife and using pornography when his email address and credit card information was found in the Ashley Madison hack.
“It is going to take a long time before we forgive,” the source said. “In the long term, eventually, we will forgive, it will be in our best interest to forgive. Won’t happen soon. Won’t happen fast.
“Just because we forgive doesn’t mean we trust ever again. We are still extremely upset. We are all still hurt. Josh is still in rehab, nobody is warm and fuzzy to him yet. It still feels like he is a stranger.”
One person still strongly hinting at the family’s hurt feelings is his sister, Jessa, who posted a Bible passage on Instagram about how the only path to righteousness is confession.
Is she saying that she doesn’t believe Josh has been completely forthcoming about his sins? It wouldn’t be the first time Jessa has been as outspoken as a Duggar can be about her brother’s transgressions.
After Josh’s confession, porn star Danica Dillon came forward, saying that she had at least two sexual encounters with the reality star, but despite all of these awful revelations, Josh’s wife, Anna, is still standing by her man.
“… Anna is still by his side supporting him,” a source told E! Online. “She isn’t in Arkansas. She is getting support from her family. She is staying with her mom.”
Anna’s mom, Suzette Keller, was shown living in Florida on the now-canceled 19 Kids and Counting, but it is unclear if that is where she still resides.
