I get no kick from the outing of 32 million Ashley-Madison customers. It’s a site marketed to “cheaters”, so I guess we’re supposed think that they “got what was coming to them”, but it’s not like they joined Ashley-Madison in order to force the deportation of undocumented immigrants or to abolish the minimum wage. So live and let live, I say, with one exception: Josh Duggar.
Josh, who molested his sisters as a young man, then went on to work for the Family Research Council, a registered hate group, is the oldest son of the Quiverfull Duggars of “19 Kids and Counting” fame. He and the rest of the Duggars are poster kids for abstinence until marriage, not using contraception, and generally Jesusing up the joint with their own patriarchal flavor of Jesus Juice. So the discovery that Josh had two Ashley-Madison accounts is almost enough for me to believe that Jesus really is a deity, because he visited some serious retribution on one of the most prominent sinners in his flock.
My hope – or dare I say prayer – is that Jesus keeps it going. I wonder which other members of the Christian bedroom police will be caught up in this revelation? I’m hoping for Huckabee, but he’s probably too smart to register for this site with a credit card billed to his address.
