Five Hundred Pound Peep: Will Anna Leave Josh Duggar? She Should. (fivehundredpoundpeeps.blogspot.com)
Josh's sociopathic smirk in the mug shot is horrible. It was obvious Ma and Pa Duggar minimized Josh's problems and swept them under the carpet years ago and now you see the results today.
Josh has been arrested for possession of child pornography or CSA. It's possible Anna has faced abuse from Josh as well, in addition to the obvious emotional abuse. There is one Duggar episode, where she is pregnant, and instead of getting up from the table, Josh has her crawl under the table while guests are over for dinner.
If she stays with him after all this, that shows some serious problems. Self protection and self love are gone. It will be worse that not even the natural instincts of most mothers to protect their children won't come to bear.
Religious cults definitely have an issue with sex abuse in general. The authoritarian structure, the conformity and blind obedience all work together to help predators do their thing. In the ACON community, we have discussed for years how the willing bystanders to abuse are just as evil and responsible as the main abusers.
Unless Anna now is working to get her kids to safety and in changing things, she is betraying her kids. I saw some people on message boards questioning if CPS was going to come in and do investigations of the M kids and the other kids on the Duggar compound. Josh definitely could have abused them too, I hope an investigation is forthcoming. Sadly the cult tells her to stay married no matter what. Religious cults are all about preserving the power for the status quo, and obviously show no care for women and children who belong to them.
