    Jessa (Duggar) Seewald Publicly Turns Her Back on Brother Josh – Is a Family Feud Brewing?
    BY AARON COUCH @AaronCouch 09/01/2015 AT 07:20 PM EDT

    Jessa (Duggar) Seewald is publicly breaking ranks with her brother Josh Duggar for the first time since multiple scandals have hit the embattled reality star.

    Seewald shared a post on her Facebook page written by her father-in-law Michael Seewald, in which he called Josh a "hypocritical Christian" following the revelation that Josh used the cheating website Ashley Madison. Her husband Ben Seewald tweeted a link to the blog post.

    A day earlier, Jessa and Ben both shared a link to a sermon about preventing adultery and rejecting "a thousand other temptations."

    It's a notable move for Jessa, as she had previously stood by Josh. In June, she told Fox News she and the family had moved on after she and sister Jill were molested by Josh as girls. She told Fox News' Megyn Kelly that Josh is not a "child molester or a pedophile or a rapist."

    "Josh was a boy, a young boy in puberty and a little too curious about girls," Jessa said. "And that got him into some trouble. And he made some bad choices, but, really, the extent of it was mild – inappropriate touching on fully clothed victims, most of it while [the] girls were sleeping."

    Other members of the Duggar family have dealt with the scandals by appealing to their faith.

    Sister Jill has said just to "trust god," while Josh's parents Jim Bob and Michelle have admitted they are "deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions" but that they're hoping for his "complete repentance and sincere change"

    Josh checked into rehab on Wednesday.

    Jessa and Ben previously addressed the Duggar family's scandal Saturday at the Southern Women's Show in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    I bet there is a lot of resentment growing despite the brainwashing.

    Jessa Duggar Turns Her Back on Brother Josh Duggar in Wake of His Cheating Confession

    She's taken sides. Jessa Duggar publicly turned her back on her older brother Josh Duggar on Tuesday, Sept. 1, sharing a link to her father-in-law Michael Seewald's scathing blog post in which he called Josh a "pretender."

    "Go to http://seewalds.com," the pregnant reality star, 22, told her followers on social media, linking to Michael's update, "Grief, Shame, and Taking the Lord's Name in Vain," from Monday, Aug. 31. "And read the post on the Ashley Madison scandal."

    Ben Seewald's dad — who gently expressed support for Josh this past May when the molestation scandal first broke — wrote about his in-law this past week in an entirely different tone. "I do not wish to add any more distress to a family still recovering from the indignity of the publication of a police report detailing Josh’s sins as a teenager," the Seewald family patriarch wrote on Monday. "Though I have never gotten to know Josh very well, I have great respect for his sorrowing parents and immense sympathy for his dear wife, Anna, and their four children."

    Though Michael acknowledged Christians' many imperfections and flaws, he ripped Josh for hypocrisy in using Ashley Madison secretly while publicly professing his faith. "It doesn’t surprise me that thirty nine million people are members of the Ashley Madison adultery website, nor do I think it surprises you," Michael wrote. "What is troubling is that many who take the name of Christ are among its members... It distresses me to say that Josh Duggar’s greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God. He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise. With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil."

    Josh, too, acknowledged his transgressions on Aug. 20, when he confessed to cheating. In a statement on his family's website, the father of four called himself "the biggest hypocrite ever" and admitted that he has "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." It was announced last week that the beleaguered eldest Duggar son had checked himself into a long-term treatment center, marking his second stint in rehab.

    Meanwhile, his parents said in a statement that their "hearts were broken" amid Josh's second major scandal of 2015. His sister Jill Duggar wrote in a blog update on Aug. 31, that August ended "on a sad note" for her family, and they are currently facing "difficult days" in the wake of Josh's infidelity admission.

    In addition to publicly siding with the Seewalds on Tuesday, Jessa also shared a sermon this week called the "Passions That Prevent Adultery." Citing Pastor John Piper's DesiringGod.org, Jessa shared with her fans: "The gospel convinces us of something irresistibly true, and then transforms our desires for something new. That conviction and passion keeps us out of bed with someone who’s not our spouse and rejects a thousand other temptations."

    I'm sorry, molesting your sisters repeatedly is forgiven, but paying a consenting adult isn't???!!

    As a Christian, both are wrong, but I guess the girls who were molested just need to 'suck it up and deal'. A woman who hasn't been victimized and can speak for herself is not allowed

    I don't think Jessa has taken side. She's just been told to obey and agree with her husband and fil.

    In their world its husband 1st, so yeah, she pretty much has no choice but to take her husband's stance. He probably took his cues from his father.

    In addition to being a molester, adulterer, and hypocrite, he just generally seems like an asshole. I bet his sisters don't like him much anyway. Now maybe they won't have to pretend to so much.

    They raised him to be an entitled asshole. When you can get away with molesting your sisters 3 times and still your parents are defending you on TV...

    "It was amazing to understand that there are so many people that deal with this exact same thing in their families," Jill said. "I feel like this should be a discussion that people are having, even regularly. It shouldn't be a taboo subject," Jessa added.
    Well, in healthy families, sexual abuse IS discussed. We talk to our children about it in age-appropriate ways, and it's an ongoing conversation as they get older, not a "taboo subject" and NOT lumped in with normal, healthy sexuality. They're two separate subjects, and talking about both is so necessary, but this family and other fundies like them just slap the OHNOES!SEX! label on all of it and in doing so, fail to arm their children with the information they need to (a) understand the difference between abuse and normal sexuality, and (b) tell a safe person if, God forbid, they find themselves in an abusive situation.

    'I can't wait to change my name!' Amy Duggar looks forward to weekend wedding as she plans to distance herself from cousin Josh

    By Laurel Brown For Dailymail.com
    Published: 17:12 GMT, 3 September 2015 | Updated: 19:04 GMT, 3 September 2015

    Revelations about Josh Duggar's behaviour have brought shame on him - and sullied the reputation of his once-squeaky clean last name.
    And now his cousin Amy has announced that she is ready to no longer be a Duggar.
    'I can't wait to change my name!' Amy told People in an interview published on Thursday ahead of her wedding this weekend.
    Scroll down for video

    Big change: Amy Duggar is excited to change her name when she marries this weekend - distancing herself from her 19 Kids And Counting family and from cousin Josh Duggar

    Singer Amy has always been the rebel of her extended family - made famous by 19 Kids And Counting.
    'It's going to be a great day when Dillon [King, her fiance] signs that marriage license and my last name changes,' said the 28-year-old. 'You have no idea!'
    Set to be married over Labor Day weekend, Amy made it clear that she was ready for this big step.
    'I'm so excited,' she said. 'We're having a lot of fun with it.'

    Amy did not hide the fact that she was looking forward to the wedding partially to have a diversion from her extended family's ongoing drama.
    'Despite all the crap going on in my family, a few days from now will be an awesome moment,' she insisted.
    The older cousin of the 19 Duggar children - and frequent guest star on 19 Kids And Counting - has made already made it clear that she disapproves of Josh, 27, in the wake of his molestation and infidelity scandals.


    Family troubles: With her cousin Josh Duggar's recent scandals causing family trouble, Amy expressed an interest in focusing on her 'awesome moment'



    Disapproval: Formerly a close cousin who merited birthday good wishes in March, Josh (left, as a child) has been condemned by Amy (right)

    Prior to this summer's scandalous revelations, there were indications that the cousins were close - Amy wished Josh a happy birthday in March, posting a throwback photo to them as children.
    That changed after Josh's misdeeds came to light with the release of police records from his teen years, followed by the reality star's name uncovered among leaks of usernames from the Ashley Madison affair website.
    'I agree 100 percent with what Mr. Seewald said in his blog. We're still shocked and furious,' Amy said in a statement reported by Perez Hilton on Wednesday.


    Picking a side: Along with her cousin, Jessa (left), Amy has publicly endorsed a condemnation of Josh written by Michael Seewald, Jessa's father-in-law

    Her cousin Jessa's father-in-law, Michael Seewald, wrote on Monday that Josh was a 'pretender' who had 'lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil.'
    Jessa, 22, and her husband, Ben Seewald, both linked to the post, while the rest of the Duggar family has remained silent on the issue.


    Rebel: Even when appearing on 19 Kids And Counting, Amy was the somewhat rebellious member of the family - she moved to Nashville in 2014 to pursue a singing career

    As for Amy, there has been no indication that she has cut ties to the rest of her large, conservative-Christian family.
    The girl who moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2014 to become a singer has stated that she will not be married in a church but will include her cousins in the ceremony - her youngest female cousins are slated to be flower girls.
    Josh, reportedly undergoing treatment at a Christian centre, is not likely to attend.


    Happy future: Unusual and slightly racy photos announced Amy's engagement earlier this year



    Family oriented: Despite her differences with them, Amy has made it clear she wants her family involved in her upcoming wedding
