Josh Duggar: Ignored By "Furious" Family After Moving Back to Arkansas?

Last week, after resigning from his post at the Family Research Council in disgrace, admitted child molester Josh Duggar moved back to Arkansas

He hasn't been welcomed back with open arms, however.

Rather than move back into the "Duggar compound," Josh and his wife Anna had purchased a much smaller house in his hometown of Tontitown.

In front of a national Fox News TV audience, Josh's parents defended him, and even his own victims/sisters dismissed his actions as "mild touching."

So the 27-year-old former lobbyist likely assumed that he would be embraced and brought back into the fold like the proverbial prodigal son he is.

Not the case.

You can imagine his surprise when - as OK! magazine claims - the first of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 kids and counting was shunned by them.

Sources tell the tabloid that the entire 19 Kids and Counting clan is "furious" with Josh and has completely frozen him out since his return to Arkansas. 

"Josh is the reason the gravy train came screeching to a halt," says one insider.

"He's ruined their main source of income, and they're furious."

The source close to the situation claims the clearest sign that Josh is being shunned came when he and Anna moved into their new home.

Josh received help from professional movers, but no one in his family offered to lend him a hand - which is generally customary for them.

"Anna is due to give birth to their fourth child in less than a month, and she needed helping hands more than ever," the insider says.

"But the family abandoned them, all saying they were 'too busy.'"

But while the entire family is seething with rage, no one is angrier - despite their public professions of forgiveness - than Jessa and Jill.

The now-married sisters confirmed that they were molested by Josh and now feel that he's damaging and traumatizing them yet again.

"They were becoming the superstars of the family," the insider says of the pair, who had increasingly become the focal points of 19 Kids.

"They're devastated - and terribly resentful of Josh."
