    Sounds like someone is channeling Flip Wilson. Having said this, however, I might try the same excuse if my wife catches me with another women.

    There was a case of murder in Papua New Guinea which was thrown out, since the victim was a witch doctor.
    Self defense was apparently a justified argument, despite the victim being asleep (from memory) because a hair brush had gone missing. Something like that, anyway.

    I'd run the justice system to evidence based criteria. Some gave different criteria of evidence, but obviously mine is the right one. Ahem...

    He's in denial and needs to take responsibility for his actions. He'll never recover if he doesn't.

    It reminds me of those shirts/bumper stickers that say "I'm not perfect, but I'm forgiven." Religion, granting moral superiority without responsibility or accountability.

    [​IMG] Brilliant, the "catch all" defence for any and every crime. Do they have a seance to summon the devil as a witness for the defence?

    Wow ... what a scumbag. Won't even take responsibility for his own actions after he has been found out to have seriously harmed his own sister.

    I hope the devil makes one of his sisters shove a red-hot poker up his butt.

    No. Even if it's the Devil's fault, Mr. Duggar isn't blameless. Also, the people in the family & TV crew who covered it up would seem to bear a share of responsibility as well.

    Unfortunately in some of those types of communities they seem to refer to that sort of behavior as dating.

    I wonder if any of his supporters would leave him alone with their children.

    I always find it amusing how religion is such a perfect tool for sociopaths.

    If the Devil represents a person's capacity to commit violence in order to fulfill their own desires, then yes, the Devil made him do it.

    If we're to assume that somehow diminishes his responsibility for his actions, I'm pretty confident the Devil wants me to spend a couple of hours with him and an assortment of sharp instruments.

    EXCELLENT POST!

    The mind of a sex offender is a complex thing; like an onion, a layer of lies under another layer of lies under another. This is only the first layer.

    The reactionary response to childhood sexual abuse is not productive. What is needed is a more preventative model of addressing childhood sexual abuse; kind of like what Germany is doing:

    Do you like children in ways you shouldn't?
