Duggar Family Listens to Sermon On Pornography Before Attending Amy Duggar's Wedding

The Duggar family must have felt somewhat targeted when they attended church on Sunday. The topic of the pastor's sermon was pornography. It was only a couple of weeks ago that Josh Duggar, the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children, admitted he has an addiction to pornography. He also admitted he cheated on his wife, Anna Duggar. Shortly after his admission, a porn star came forward, saying Josh Duggar had paid to have sex with her.

The sermon was delivered by Pastor Jeff Crawford, and the pastor seemed to be referencing the troubled Duggar family as addressed the congregation.

"I know there are some folks in here today--pornography is a deal in your life," Entertainment Tonight reports.

Anna Duggar joined the Duggar family for church services Sunday morning, so she was likely pained by the sermon as well. Following church services, Anna accompanied the 19 Kids and Counting clan as they attended cousin Amy Duggar's wedding to Dillon King.

Jill Duggar Dillard and her family returned home from their work as missionaries in Central America for the wedding. Jessa Duggar Seewald was there with her husband Ben, too. Josh and Anna Duggar's daughter McKynzie was one of Amy's flower girls, as were some of the youngest members of the Duggar family--including Josie Duggar. It was likely difficult for Anna, knowing her husband was the only member of the Duggar family not attending the wedding. Even harder, of course, was the reason why. Josh is presently at a rehab facility called Reformers Unanimous, where he is said to be receiving counseling for his sex addiction.

Anna Duggar left the Duggar family behind shortly after Amy Duggar and Dillon King tied the knot on Sunday. She didn't attend the wedding reception afterward.

Between the sermon on pornography and the wedding celebration attended by everyone but her husband, it was likely a long, hard day for Anna Duggar.
