More Sexual, Rape Charges Against Former Church Leader Tied To Duggar Family.

More trouble for the sick bastard, Bill Gothard, the former head of the 'Institute in Basic Life Principles,' accused of sexually abusing and raping 10 women filed lawsuits Wednesday had a history of concealing information about the abuse from the parents. According to one young lady, Gothard raped her after she arrived at the Institute for help in dealing with her father raping her, which is a little blow the belt, no pun intended. Raping or sexually assaulting anyone is horrendous; especially a child dealing with the violent rape of a man she was raised to trust.

Of course, Gothard categorizes the allegations as false. His sentiment is he couldn't imagine hurting the people with which he once worked. I have doubts about his innocence, no not because I hate the Duggars or their values, but 30 women telling you they were sexually assaulted cannot all be wrong.

Gothard resigned in 2014 when 30 women accused him of some form of inappropriate sexual touching.  Bill, who is 81, has never been married, but his teachings on total and complete submission were the Duggar family's source for sexual education.

"His teachings—which rely upon absolute submission to patriarchal authority—were given a national platform by the Duggar family in their TLC show “19 Kids And Counting.” GOP presidential candidate and Duggar ally Mike Huckabee has also made public appearances with the Christian leader." (1).

 Although Bill denies the allegations, I am inclined to believe the women because their reasons lie and make embarrassing false claims are so beyond unreasonable, it defies common sense.

The  plaintiffs are seeking $50,000.00 in damages.
