Apparently The Republican God Is Fine With Child Molestation And Incest, But Seems To Be Really Ticked Off At Gays, Contraception, Minorities, The 50% White President And Immigrants.

[NYT] Former Gov. Mike Huckabee, the Republican from Arkansas who is running for president, has come to the defense of the former director of the conservative Family Research Council’s lobbying group who resigned this week amid allegations that he had molested children.

 

Josh Duggar, a conservative activist whose family has been chronicled in the reality television show “19 Kids and Counting” stepped down from his job at FRC Action on Thursday after In Touch Weekly revealed a 2006 police report that showed him at the center of a police investigation. Mr. Duggar, who worked on Mr. Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign, wrote in a post on Facebook that the allegations were true and that he regretted his actions.

 

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Mr. Duggar said.

 

On Friday, Mr. Huckabee expressed his support for the Duggar family, which hails from Arkansas, and said that Mr. Duggar deserved a second chance.

 

“Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he described them himself, ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable’,” Mr. Huckabee said in a statement that scolded anyone who took pleasure in the revelations. “Those who have enjoyed revealing this long ago sins in order to discredit the Duggar family have actually revealed their own insensitive blood thirst.”

 

Mr. Huckabee’s defense of Mr. Duggar could come back to haunt him as his second White House bid gathers pace. A former Baptist pastor, he has faced criticism in the past for granting clemency to prisoners as governor of Arkansas.

 

Mr. Duggar, who also worked on former Senator Rick Santorum’s 2012 presidential campaign, has been active in conservative politics for many years. His Twitter feed shows pictures of himself with Mr. Huckabee and as well as poses with Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and former Gov. Jeb Bush.
