The previously "debt free" Duggars are reportedly facing possible foreclosure on their 7000 square foot home. Although their worth is an estimated $3.5 million, (they were being paid up to $40,000 per episode), their motion to dismiss their foreclosure lawsuit against a mortgage company was approved and a foreclosure is possible.

The Fools Of Forgiveness

Mike Huckabee is not the only person who looks foolish for supporting Josh Duggar during the first scandal: social media has opined that Anna Duggar should get a divorce due to the humiliation, but ...

Wife Anna Duggar is now taking part of the blame for Duggar's sins because she is, of course, a dutiful wife who now berates herself for not being "available" for his needs and submissive enough.
Her mother-in-law, Michelle Duggar, advises married women to have sex with their husband whenever he wants.
"Be available," the 49-year-old said in an interview last year. "Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has. You always need to be available when he calls."

Mark Woods of Christian Today argues that Josh Duggar should still be forgiven for his indiscretions:

By all means line up to give Josh Duggar a kicking, if it makes you feel good. But the thing about Christianity is that it preaches forgiveness and restoration to people you wouldn't have in your house. It says to people who've done far worse than adultery, "You're welcome. Repent and receive Christ's forgiveness." It says at communion, "This is a table for sinners."

That may be true, but do Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar deserve forgiveness for what they've done to their children over the past thirty years?

Just a thought.
