TV host Montel Williams took to Twitter to lash out at Josh Duggar on Thursday night, invoking a Bible verse and calling the reality star a “world class bigot” after Duggar apologized following a tabloid report that was published alleging he molested underage girls as a teenager more than a decade ago.
“Josh Duggar, a world class bigot, admits sexually abusing young girls – has consistently stated that LGBT folks r danger to kids,” Williams Tweeted. “Gosh, yet another anti-gay alleged ‘Christian’ defender turns out to be a garden variety scumbag.”
The talk show host and commentator continued in a number of subsequent tweets, taking aim at both the Duggar family — stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” — as well as the Family Research Council, a conservative organization.
Duggar resigned from his position as the executive director of FRC Action, the Family Research Council’s lobbying firm, in the midst of Thursday’s story.
“Sorry, Josh Duggar is a bigot, slimebag. Whole family is, and FRC is a scam,” Williams continued. “Yup, Gay people are the danger to kids? NOPE, JOSH DUGGAR IS.”
He then shared a Bible verse in an effort to express his views about judgement, posting an image featuring the text of Luke 6:37 along with the following statement: “The entire purpose of my rant about Josh Duggar is to illustrate a simple truth: Everything we judge we walk through.”
Luke 6:37 reads, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
The Family Research council has argued that same-sex marriage poses certain challenges to children — an argument that is seemingly at the center of Williams’ critique of Duggar.
As TheBlaze previously reported, tabloid In Touch Weekly published a story Thursday citing a 2006 police report from Springdale Police department in Arkansas providing graphic details of the alleged crimes Duggar committed.
