Josh Duggar Admits He Used Ashley Madison to Cheat on His Wife

Last night when the news broke that Josh Duggar may have spent $1,000 on two different accounts with Ashley Madison, the site designed to help people cheat on their wives, there was a small part of all of us that believed this could have been set up by hackers. But in a post on the Duggar family's blog, Josh confessed to cheating on Anna, getting addicted to porn, and being "the biggest hypocrite ever." Oh. My. GOD.


Here's what he had to say for himself:

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.

The big question now is about how his family will respond -- will his marriage with Anna make it through this? Will his brothers and sisters stick up for him?? And his parents???

Jim Bob and Michelle actually did have something to say in the same post, but it wasn't much -- they admitted to just learning about this last night, and said their "hearts were broken." Uh, ours too. Ours too.
