Jessa Duggar posts a solicitation for funds for another El Salvador missionary, ignoring sister Jill Duggar’s money pleas for her Dillard Family Ministries. Though the missionary organization of Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard has come under its own severe criticism, Jessa Duggar’s website post is puzzling.
As Inquisitr reported earlier, Jill and husband Derick went to Central America for a month on July 5, to join a group of volunteers with S.O.S. Ministries of Clearwater, Florida. Two weeks prior to their departure, the couple filed papers with the Secretary of State in Arkansas to begin a non-profit organization, Dillard Family Ministries. Jill and Derick then began to solicit and collect donations for their travels via their website. Although they were volunteering with S.O.S. Ministries, they were not employed by that organization as missionaries and, like all other volunteers on the month-long tour of three Central American counties, they had to pay for their own airfare and accommodations.
Instead of supporting her sister Jill and brother-in-law Derick, Jessa Seewald has now asked her fans to support S.O.S. Ministries directly, listing it as a “family resource” on her website. She also posted the same blurry picture that Jill had used on her Dillard family website to solicit funds for themselves. The picture shows Jessa, Jill, and other Duggar family members on one of their many trips to volunteer with that organization over the years.
It is one thing for Jessa not to support her sister’s work, but it is quite another to go out of her way to encourage her fans to send donations elsewhere. It is also completely confusing to those who still support the Duggar family.
Once seen as a cohesive family unit, the clan has been unraveling at the seams in the light of public revelations of Josh Duggar’s sexual molestations of his sisters and the cancellation of the family’s reality TV series, 19 Kids and Counting. At first showing support for her sexually deviant brother – labeling his incestuous fondling as being “just a little too curious about girls” – Jessa has now turned with a vengeance when Josh confessed to adultery with a prostitute. She directs her audience to go read a scathing post her father-in-law wrote on his website condemning her brother Josh Duggar.
“While proudly saying things like, ‘Our family is like the epitome of conservative values,’ he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs. He took a job at the Family Research Council that exists to promote the traditional family, all the while undermining his own family by violating his marriage covenant. He flourished in the fame of his family and the success of their television show, all the while betraying their trust and Christian values. The thing that is so hurtful is that he was a loud voice endorsing Christian ethics and he has been shown to be a fraud. I am profoundly grieved that he attained such a platform only to bring shame on God’s holy name and the Christian faith.”
Both Jessa Duggar and Michelle Duggar have lately been called out by critics for passive-aggressive behavior toward Duggar family relatives. This comes after a string of social posts made by Jessa Duggar in recent weeks, which resulted in hundreds upon hundreds of angry comments accusing her of scene stealing from other Duggar family members. She even used a YouTube video wishing mother Michelle Duggar a happy birthday to talk about herself and her pregnancy.
It’s unfortunate that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar didn’t let their kids watch Disney movies when they were growing up. If they had been allowed to watch Bambi, they might have learned a valuable lesson in character from the little Thumper rabbit.
