Jessa Seewald (nee Duggar) hasn’t directly slammed brother Josh Duggar for his latest scandal, but she certain bashed him indirectly. The former 19 Kids and Counting star posted a link to a sermon about adultery on her Instagramaccount. It was recently discovered that Josh Duggar had two Ashley Madison accounts. He admitted to having an addiction to pornography and to cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar.
Shortly after Jessa Duggar Seewald shared the link, husband Ben Seewald shared it on his social media pages, too.

Even though Jessa Seewald didn’t directly slam Josh Duggar, her father-in-law definitely didn’t mince any words. Michael Seewald wrote any essay on his blog that directly addresses Josh Duggar’s Ashley Madison scandal and his sexual sins.

“In commenting on this 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 in his post. “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. I myself have been mourning over the irreparable damage that has been done to many by this whole circumstance, yet the reason I feel obliged to make these remarks is an overwhelming desire to vindicate the name of God.”
“It is not shocking that men and women lie, cheat, steal, hate, fornicate, and commit any and all other sins. It happens every second of every minute of every hour of every day. 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,” he wrote. “What is troubling is that many who take the name of Christ are among its members. It doesn’t trouble me because I think Christians aren’t capable of doing the worst of things, but that we profess that we are no longer the slaves of sin, but servants to God. By professing that we love God with our mouth, yet secretly serving sin, we are found to be hypocrites,” he added.
Jessa Duggar Seewald and her husband Ben are expecting their first baby on November 1–the date of their first wedding anniversary. She appeared alongside sister Jill Duggar Dillard and mom Michelle Duggar on Sunday’s TLC special about sexual abuse.
Do you think Jessa Seewald was indirectly slamming her brother by posting the link to a sermon on adultery? She is close to sister-in-law Anna Duggar, and no doubt feels bad for what she’s going through.
