For the first time since their son admitted to molesting multiple young girls as a teenager, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar will speak out this week.
The Duggar parents have booked an appearance on Fox News for Wednesday night.
But someone else very close to Josh Duggar has already made his opinion on this heinous scandal known to the public: Ronnie Floyd.
Via an interview with People Magazine, the family’s Arksansas-based pastor acknowledges the grave wrong Duggar committed by inappropriately touching five underage girls.
But that does not mean Josh is doomed for life, he says.
"Everyone does wrong, and what was wrong was very wrong as to what was testified to and it's completely unacceptable," Floyd says, adding:
"But I'm thankful, whether it's him or any other one, that I serve a God who can forgive everything."
In response do Duggar's actions, TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule, while various companies have pulled their ads in case TLC ever decides to bring the show back.
Floyd went on to say he was "surprised" by this disguising news because the Duggars are considered a "very Christian family" in Arkansas.
Others close to Josh Duggar (such as Anna Duggar and even Mike Huckabee) have come to the reality star's defense, while Funny or Die recently tore into Michelle and Jim Bob for their tone-deaf response to the scandal.
Larry Wilmore also used his Comedy Central platform to deliver a funny/pointed take on the Josh Duggar controversy.
