Josh Duggar’s trial and sentencing deeply affected the Duggar family. While Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna Duggar, continues to stand by his side, many other Duggars have made their stance in favor of prison known. Jinger Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, recently took to YouTube to speak about the gospel and Christianity. Here, he mentioned his feelings about Josh. Here’s what he said about Josh deserving “eternal punishment,” and his call out to Anna Duggar.
Jinger Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, spoke out in a new YouTube video
Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, live on the West Coast — far away from Josh Duggar and many of the other Duggar family members. It’s clear Jinger still keeps up with her parents and siblings, though. While she isn’t the closest in proximity to Josh, she’s well-aware of his crimes. And on June 21, 2022, her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, took to YouTube to discuss God, forgiveness, and Josh.
“Josh’s life has proven to be one of a hypocrite,” Jeremy says in the video, titled “Three Truths,” according to The Sun. “One life in public, and one life in private. Often the devil wears a suit and tie. Jesus had no time, no sympathy for abusive leaders who preyed on the vulnerable.”
Jeremy went on to say that while God can forgive Josh, Josh cannot erase “the demand for his crimes to be punished.”
Furthermore, Jeremy might’ve called out Anna for supporting Josh despite all of the mounting evidence against Josh. “True repentance is not asking for lenience, knowing that what he deserves is the eternal punishment of God,” Jeremy continued, possibly referring to Anna. “True repentance is not concerned with reputation, damage control, or getting off the hook.”
What did Jinger Duggar say about Josh Duggar?
Jinger Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, spoke out about Josh Duggar in his recent YouTube video. And Jinger also spoke about Josh’s behavior.
“We are saddened for the victims of horrific child abuse,” Jinger wrote in a statement in December 2021, according to People. She continued by saying she’s “saddened for Josh’s family, his wife, and precious children, and “saddened for the dishonor this has brought upon Christ’s name. Josh claims to be a Christian.”
Jinger then stated she had “gratitude” after the verdict. “We are grateful that God is a God of justice who cares for the innocent and the helpless,” she continued. “And, of all the people in this world, he especially loves children, who are among the most vulnerable. This reality makes the existence of sex trafficking and child abuse one of the most horrific evils imaginable. It is an evil God hates.”
How long is Josh Duggar’s prison sentence?
Josh Duggar didn’t get the maximum possible sentence for his crimes, but he still must serve 151 months, or 12.5 years, behind bars. After his release, he’ll have 20 years of supervised release. When his supervised release ends, Josh will be 66 years old, and his children will all have reached adulthood.
Additionally, Josh’s release comes with a number of “special conditions” to follow. He cannot have any unsupervised contact with minors, he has to have computer-monitoring software installed on his devices, and he cannot view any pornography of any kind. He might also have to engage in periodic polygraph testing.
