Is it possible to feel sorry for someone and want to punch them in the face at the same time?

I'd like to know what his victims think of his little "joke".

I can accept that someone can be remorseful for doing something terrible and that he is forgiven by the victims. What I do not understand is how parents put their children in the limelight, creating the potential for this kind of situation to explode. You cannot cherry pick the side of your family you want for public consumption and not expect the public to be judgmental when something like this breaks-- that is a terrible delusion. And let's ask an honest question, because sanctimonious asshats like Mike Hukabee are concerned that public ridicule of the Duggars is harmful to the victims and we should relent. I am not sure in that kind of family the victims of abuse would have real agency to get counseling or forgive on their own volition. In fact, oftentimes those insular communities shame the victims just as much as the perpetrators. Imagine the pressure from the church and family to forgive and forget. Even if everyone has been healed and the son is rehabilated, the parents are still terrible people for thinking it would be a great idea to bring cameras into the house two years after the this occurred.
Apparently the Duggars are good friends with Mr. "Handsy" Gothard, and probably follow these guidelines in their own lives, too.
Odds are, the sisters he molested are likely never to receive any measurable help from their own family, have indeed been rejected by their parents in favor of the eldest son when he decided to molest them, and have probably been taught to think of themselves as being at fault for it happening.
Fuck the parents and Josh Duggar, fuck them to hell.
His job was literally to prevent gay people from getting married, etc. This dude is a real piece of shit.
It felt like these lunatics were on television twenty hours a day, making what I have to imagine is a mint from the people the Duggars hated most (people outside of their cult).
I'm sure his sisters are being told that this is their fault. Probably from wearing a bathing suit or something.

If it's true he was fondling the five-year-old as well, I'd love to hear the explanation for that.
Trust me, the girls in that family have never worn a bathing suit in their lives.
As their part of the "Quiverfull movement", I think the rule is you can wear a bathing suit, just not in public.
A religious aunt tried dismissing this entire thing as "a youthful mistake". He was 15 at the time and it was revealed he molested four of his younger sisters. Since this happened twelve years-old, that would make his four oldest sisters 13, 12, 10, and 9. I had read somewhere that he did not molest the oldest one. If that's the case, then the youngest of his victims would have been 5.

needs a "fuck you" tag.
This whole thing is a clusterfuck of which is worse: what he did, how it was handled, or the number of Christians coming out to defend him like he's just a good ol' boy who was too young to know better.
