We hate to say it and we really hate to see it, but…
… Josh Duggar is back in our lives.
He’s not on television again. And he isn’t actually saying anything.
Any Josh Duggar is too much Josh Duggar, in our educated and totally accurate opinion, at least.
The disgraced ex-reality star, who has admitted to both cheating on his wife AND molesting his sisters, was featured in a photo shared by that same wife, Anna Duggar, on Monday.
As you can see above, Anna used the occasion of Labor Day to shove her husband stupid face back into the lives of her followers, writing as a caption to a family photo:
"Hope you are having a #HappyLaborDay and spending it with ones you love most! We spent some time with family [and] friends at #FarmlandAdventures today!"
This is the second time in just a few weeks that Anna has posted a photo that include Josh.
Back in early July, the ex-TLC personality actually gushed over Josh in a caption to the photo immediately above.
"June was an exciting month for our family," Anna wrote, explaining why as follows:
"Marcus, Michael and I are are officially a year older + Josh and I celebrated our 10 year engagement anniversary!"
She then singled out Josh in particular and added:
The past 10 years have been a wonderful adventure. So thankful for God’s redeeming grace and His blessings to us along the way, especially our 5 M’s!
Yes, a wonderful adventure.
That certainly is one way to describe what Anna and Josh have gone through.
Their relationship hit a tiny snag back in May of 2015 when it came out that Josh had inappropriately touched two of his siblings when he was a teenager.
This was a rather unfathomable scandal at the time, especially by the standards of the Duggars, who think it’s a sin to even look at your girlfriend in shorts before she becomes your wife.
(And even then… it’s probably questionable.)
We later learned that Duggar was also an Ashley Madison client and used the website to find women with whom he could sleep.
None of these women were his wife, in case that wasn’t clear. Josh was outed as a serial cheater and subsequently went to rehab for an alleged sex addiction.
The couple has five kids together and we feel worse and worse for Anna with each passing day.
It’s as if she’s a member of some cult and simply cannot leave it for any reason.
But that’s not what Anna says.
She has credited God and her faith for helping her forgive Josh and move on from these crazy scandals, once saying in a Counting On confessional:
"For my heart, it was like how could this happen in our marriage. Josh was my first love, he’s my one and only.
"My only hope was to cling to my faith because I know if I went off of what I was feeling I would turn a mess into a disaster.
"So in the stun and in the shock of everything, I was praying to God, ‘Help me to know how to respond to all of this.’ I didn’t know what to do.
"I knew we needed help and I was just praying that God would give the help and the wisdom that we needed to take the next step."
