But let's take a look at who is kicking the Duggars while they're down.
The Duggar's open opposition to homosexuality, birth control, and abortion on their television series has made them many enemies among moral degenerates and relativists in the Morally Subjective Media (MSM). If those enemies did not search out and publicize this 12 year old police report, they are certainly using it to extract revenge.
But these are people who foment for indoctrinating third grade students with the perversion of homosexuality. These are people who push for teaching birth control to fourth grade girls. These are people who would wet down their leg at the idea of legalizing sibling copulation. And these are the people who are "outraged" at a little adolescent groping? How convoluted can hypocrisy get?
Children are curious creatures. And they have hormones coursing through their bodies that they don't understand. And they tend to experiment with a developing sexuality with which they are not yet fully familiar. It's called growing up. It's called being human.
And if you're going to have 19 kids, you've got to expect a little pre-sexual experimentation. And I guaran-damn-tee you that in a family of 19, Jeff is not an isolated incident. He's just the only one who was dumb enough to tell you about it.
Furthermore, while I don't subscribe to Jim Backus' position in Rebel Without A Cause, I do think that filing a police report on adolescent sibling fondling is masochistically ingenuous – and inane. Surely you must have realized that sooner or later some snoop would come across that police report and embarrass you.
And as we say in Texas, "Getting on a moral high horse just makes it harder when you fall off."
