Josh Duggar Takes Job With Family Research Council; GLAAD Far From Pleased

by at . Comments

Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame has accepted a job with the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., much to the dismay of GLAAD.

Duggar, 25, announced on FRC President Tony Perkins' radio show that he is the new executive director of FRC Action, an affiliate of the FRC.

GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz promptly ripped both of them:

"If Josh Duggar wants to make a living dehumanizing and denigrating LGBT people and their families, that's his business, but FRC's lies and stereotypes need to be treated as such."

"Josh's new boss, Tony Perkins, has actually accused LGBT equality advocates of being pawns of the devil. Fans of his family's reality show ought to know that."

Maybe they can all hash this out over some tater tot casserole? Maybe not. GLAAD's comments come as little surprise, given their history with the FRC.

According to the gay rights organization, the Family Research Council is "without a doubt" one of our country's "most dangerous hate groups."

They've even called Tony Perkins "the most anti-gay man in America."

Perkins, GLAAD says, "supports the ludicrous idea that gay youth should be subjected to harmful therapies that aim to make them straight."

By associating with him, Duggar has incurred the group's wrath as well. Not that it seems to bother the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

"So grateful for this opportunity to serve!" he tweeted earlier this week.

For its part, the Family Research Council states that its vision is a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish and religious liberty thrives.

The group seeks to reaffirm and promote nationally, and the traditional family unit and the Judeo-Christian value system upon which it is based.

The stated goal of the FRC, as per its website, is to advance faith, family and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview.

Josh Duggar and wife Anna welcomed their third child, Marcus, on June 5.

I am a huge fan of the Dugger family, and support his decision to take this job. I did not even know FRC existed. This sounds like a perfect match for Josh and his wife. I am very proud that they are willing to take a stand against GLAAD an other groups. It's about time someone did! I see parents who purposefully raise their children to be gay. It breaks my heart that so many people are missing out on God's plan for their life. God has the perfect mate picked out for each and every one of us, and if we choose to go down the wrong path, we are missing out on His blessings.

Yeah but if you had read about Jesus you would know the sinners turned their lives around and Christ spoke against sexual sin. So please don't water down the gospel

Have you ever opened your Bible? We are truly living in the last days, and anything goes with our society. No one stands for anything anymore. Fortunately there are still Christians who are willing to stand on the Promises. I do not hate anyone, and I pray for the lost that they will find their way. As for my children, they are brought up with love and compassion for others. No hate. They are also taught the Scripture.
