Ben Seewald started dating Jessa Duggar in September of 2013, and he's become something of a controversial figure in the months since.
First, there was the now-infamous Jessa Duggar gun photo he posted on Facebook with a caption praising her assault-weapon-wielding "AWESOME girlfriend."
Now, Seewald finds himself the target for a barrage of online criticism, after posting a rambling Facebook status update in which he outlines his problems with the Catholic faith.
"I have nothing against individuals who are Catholic," Ben's rant begins. "I know a lot of Catholics who are great people. What I DO have a problem with is the teaching that man can merit God's favor through his own works or the works of other fallen men."
