Josh Duggar Statement Altered to Remove Porn Addiction Part

Josh Duggar Statement Altered to Remove Porn Addiction Part

Just an hour after Josh Duggar released a statement confessing to cheating on his wife and being addicted to pornography, his words have been altered to remove mentions of his porn addiction.

The Duggar family website posted the statement on Thursday afternoon (August 20) and later deleted this portion: “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction.”

Another part of the statement, in which Josh brought up the molestation charges against him, was altered. The changes took out the mention of his past offenses and the rest of the statement remained unaltered.

Original Statement

“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.

I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust.

The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings.

As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.

I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.”

    There was an earlier edit, also. Someone removed the part that threw Satan under the bus–he pretty much said the Devil made him do it!

    If she can turn a blind eye to child molestation, cheating is absolutely nothing to her.
