The Duggars’ strictness stems from their appreciation for the ultra-authoritarian Bill Gothard, who himself, AS AN ADULT, has been accused of sexually assaulting numerous people.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are ready to break their silence following Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal. The ’19 Kids & Counting’ parents will sit down with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly to share with the world ‘the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago.’
