Fox’s Greg Gutfeld: Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are ‘sick creeps’ using ‘religion as a shield’

Conservative support for the Duggar family is not in short supply. Even Fox News has been accused of saying much too little about the scandal before airing what many thought was a softball interview by Megyn Kelly.


Conservative support for the Duggar family is not in short supply. Even Fox News has been accused of saying much too little about the scandal before airing what many thought was a softball interview by Megyn Kelly.

But Fox’s Greg Gutfeld took many by surprise this week when he put forth a scathing condemnation for the Duggars, and anyone else who would “use religion” as a way to shield them from sexual impropriety.

“There’s a backlash against them because they have a sick son who molested maybe his siblings and was protected by it,” Gutfeld said on his show, The Five.

Gutfeld said he was disgusted that “sick creeps” can confess their religion as a “way out of heinous activity,” using their faith as a shield.

He wondered if Christian conservatives would be as forgiving “if Josh were a member of CAIR [the Council on American-Islamic Relations].”

“If the Duggars weren’t part of a religious team that you belong to, would you be as sympathetic?” he asked.

    Greg, I guess you don’t know the power of God, He will sort this out. I’m behind the Duggars 100%. Don’t speak of what you don’t know, if you have never followed them over the years.

    Lord save me from your pedophile followers and those sick enough to use your name to defend this. Protect the children, since idiots like this would rather defend a sick man then help the victims.

    Please god, since your followers don’t care about the kids, you must;

    Mark 9:42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.

    I would say Josh and Jim Bob should throw themselves into the sea. And you are a sinner for being “behind the 100%.” I know the power of God he he will bring calamity on Josh, Jim Bob and Michelle.

    It doesn’t mean God doesn’t forgive them if they are TRULY repentant. That is between them and God. It has nothing to do with the laws of this country, and their state, which they “skated” around. It’s using their beliefs to cover for what they have done & not done as parents. And further, the hatred they have spread, saying homosexuals are pedophiles, is further proof of their own hypocrisy when they had one in their family. They lied in the FOX “News” interview, also, more than once.

    Don’t speak of what you don’t know? He molested his sisters. We know this. We all know this. Get your head out of that book you live by and use your own brain. Stop using God as a way to make everything ok.

  14. patti smith

    June 8, 2015 at 12:55 am

    If ‘god’ has so much power to help the Duggars through this, then wjy didn’t ‘god’ use his power to stop him from molesting his sisters? Where was ‘god’ during that?

  15. Jerry Edgell

    June 8, 2015 at 12:58 am

    Penny, I have watched the show over the years and had issues with their way of life but that is they way they live but so be it. They projected a loving family on the show, no doubt about that. Their faith was a huge part of the show. Jimbob and Michelle seemed like very loving parents that were raising their kids with a strong belief in faith. With that said: Do you really think god would justify josh doing this to his own sisters and the babysitter? What about his own kids? They are in serious danger with him in the house. People like him are NOT cured by saying sorry and god has forgiven them, I call BULLSHIT on that. If that is the kind of God you worship then I feel for you because a true God protects children from monsters like josh duggar.

    June 8, 2015 at 1:01 am

    Penny you tell one person not to speak on what they don’t know but you are speaking on what you don’t know.

    We know a lot and we know enough to come to a conclusion. I have never followed them and that is irrelevant to the news of the molestation, the cover up and how it was dealt with, it has nothing to do with the show at all.

    So if you want to discuss this then please stay on point/topic. The Duggar’s have let everyone know everything relevant that went on.

    yeah, using religion to justify not being justly punished for molesting children, seems perfectly rational. I doubt you’d be 100% behind an atheist or a muslim doing the same thing. the double standard is strong with you people.

Render unto Caesar that which is CaeCaesar’s is rather clear: live in the world, be not part of it, but pay your damn taxes and follow the law.

    So, god both condemns incest in the bible as grounds for death, but “gives a pass” to someone who does exactly that?

    That’s why religion is for the weak minded.

  33. Rebekah Adams

    June 8, 2015 at 3:55 am

    You obviously missed the point of his comments since you are perpetuating the same mentality through your reply! I have followed them too and am also a christian…god helps those who help themselves. You are sticking up for them because they are christian…if a muslim (or any non christian) exhibited the same behavior would you be so quick to defend them? And why should god sort out the mess they made?? And what does their faith (or your’s) have to do with Josh’s bad choices? It (christianity) only works for them if they are pillars of morality…it especially works against them when they use it to persecute others (preaching that homosexuality and transgender people are wrong for trying to be who they want to be and are pedohiles). Thank you for proving Greg’s point through your comments…did you even read the article? You are doing exactly what he is referring to when it comes to christians turning a blind eye to bad behavior of those in their faith! You disagree with him but prove him right…THE IRONY!! “If the Duggars weren’t part of a religious team that you belong to, would you be as sympathetic?” he asked.

    They’re quiverfull morons, and are hugely abusive toward their children, providing nothing in the way of enrichment or education. They’re some of the worst parents who still have their kids; They’re protected by religious bullshit. Most civilized nations would’ve arrested them already

    Penny Raduns, are you saying that Christians are above the law of the land then? That Christians shouldn’t be prosecuted by the law of the country they live in because God will punish the guilty in the afterlife?
    For you to be behind the Duggars 100% in this matter shows you are an awful person and more like the Old Testament God than the New Testament Jesus – shame on you.

    Sadly the hypocrisy from these people is amazing. They raise damaged children with dangerous and harmful beliefs then try to pretend they are better than other people. At what point does the idea that women are not cattle, and that bodily autonomy is a concept which is beneficial enter their world-view.

    Penny – help me out here, why did god miss it the first time around? couldn’t he have sorted this out before it ever happened? worked his magic on the young boy’s mind prior to the molestation? or does god just ask for forgiveness and say ‘my bad’?

    June 8, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    Sure, God may have a system of accountability, but that’s different than humanity’s system of accountability. As it is, not only do the Duggars need to answer for their crimes, they also need to do it in a way that acknowledges their hypocrisy in condemning people who have hurt no one, while pardoning their son who caused major hurt, all while foresaking their very own daughters to protect their son.

  58. Eugene

    June 8, 2015 at 4:58 pm

    GOD will sort this out? Are you insane? Exactly where in your Bible does it say anything what-so-ever about God forgiving child molesters? Christians use this “answer” for everything they can not justify … God will fix it. Exactly HOW has it been fixed? You act like the Duggars are super-heros. They rank up there with the Duck Dynasty guys and Honey Boo Boo … people out to make money by scamming people with nothing better to do that sit in front of the Boob-Box and watch whatever is being projected at us and believing in it as if they were “the gods!” They’re nothing more then paid employees of the Learning Channel!! Smack yourself in the side of your head and say “D’oh!”

    Personally, I don’t care what god you say forgave them. He molested people. I am disgusted with him as a human being. That is a sick and disgusting thing to do and deserves to be treated as such. If you stand behind child molesters, then you don’t deserve the respect of anyone. You wanna say that he is forgiven in the afterlife? Sure. Whatever. But he doesnt get my respect or forgiveness in this life, nor should he get anyone’s.

    it doesn’t have anything to do with the color of a person’s heart. It has to do with accountability, responsibility, and integrity, all of which have been abandoned by the Duggars for minimization, denial, and declarations of ignorance. It’s about how molestation is a sexual deviancy which continues in most people who commit it. It’s about the way the Duggars have held themselves up as so “godly” and “righteous”. it’s about how they seemed to value their eldest son over their daughters. I don’t follow them on tv, but millions and millions of people do. When you are putting yourself out there as represntatives of a religion, which they have, then you better live up to it.

  65. April

    June 12, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    Here’s the thing: They live in a civil society, we live in a society of laws. This was a crime not just against his family, but against society. And they did what they could to avoid consequences. Society demands justice. BTW, Jesus does forgive sins, but He does not take away the real-life consequences of sin.

    If someone was a true believer and loves the Lord with all their heart then it doesnt matter what a person believes in or doesnt believe in.
    Forgiveness can be possible.I myself am a victim also of sexual abuse.However I have been able to move from thr title “victim” and became a survivor!.My strength came from the Lord. If that makes me a “simple minded person” then so be it. But i know since i have mentioned God..let all thr hate and name calling begin!

    Why are people so ignorant? You talk about Josh Dugger as though he was a grown ass adult when he fondled his sisters…he was a child still who knew he did wrong and went to his parents! IF my son would have come to me at that age I would have done the same thing! I don’t know of a parent who would not protect their son AND get him counseling without going to the authorities! What he has done as an adult is WRONG! But NONE OF OUR BUSINESS!!! It is between him and his wife! People need to back the hell off and take care of your own shit!

    So, as long as you “ask for God’s forgiveness” for raping, molesting, killing or whatever you don’t need to be punished??? Religious people are the first ones to spout off about “an eye for an eye” when it comes to killers getting the death penalty. Anyone can “ask for God’s forgiveness”, Muslim, atheist, Christian, Buddhist, etc., etc. What does it prove? Nothing. Whatever happened to accountability and paying for your sins?

    I’m so proud of all the other Christians who are standing up for what is right. Who are we to judge. Forgiving is so important in our walk with Christ I don’t understand why people are being so judgemental. I have watched the duggars since it was an article in the magazine called 14 and pregnant again and I love them dearly. I’m not blinded by that love but its certainly not up to me to judge Josh. I’ve prayed for him and his victims and all the families involved. I will continue to do that while supporting them.
