Jim Bob Duggar has been known as a family man, a devout Christian father who loves his family, and who is serious about his faith. While fans of 19 Kids And Counting have easily grown to feel like they know this man, there seems to be a lot about the Duggar family that people don’t know. As the attention of the world seems to all be on Josh Duggar, some say that his dad, Jim Bob, has some secrets of his own — and that maybe he isn’t who he says he is.
According to People Magazine, sources have come forward to reveal the “truth” about Jim Bob.
“Jim Bob’s favorite word is ‘no.’ He’s like a dictator. He once saw a guy kissing a girl before marriage and confronted him about it. And the guy said, ‘Jim Bob, show me that verse in the Bible that says we can’t kiss. Get out your Bible.’ And Jim Bob was like, ‘Uhhhh…’ because no one ever confronts Jim Bob. No one,” shared one source close to the Duggar family.
Jim Bob Duggar “calls the shots. Always has and always will,” added another source. The family reportedly doesn’t talk about sex or sexuality — at all, ever. Many believe that the suppression is what caused Josh Duggar to become obsessed with porn, and to make him want to experiment with young girls when he was a teen.
Since Josh’s name was leaked as part of the Ashley Madison hack, he released a statement apologizing to his wife, and to his family, admitting that he cheated on Anna Duggar in the past. Could his issues stem from how he was raised? Many believe that the answer is simple: “Yes.”
According to Starcasm, people feel betrayed by this family. And if anyone should feel betrayed, it’s probably Josh’s wife. Anna Duggar is home with the couple’s four children trying to make sense of all of this, but sources say that she is so rooted in her faith, that she won’t leave her husband, even though he has been unfaithful.
“They’re telling her Jesus forgives, Satan is trying to attack your marriage, that kind of stuff.” said a source. “She doesn’t get mad. You are not allowed to get mad. It’s not godly for a woman … Ever since she met [the Duggars] she has acted more like Michelle. She talks like her, really soft. She, like, whispers.”
