Josh Duggar, the oldest of the clan of children who are the focus of TLC’s reality series 19 Kids and Counting has accepted a position as executive director with Family Research Council, which has been classified as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and has a long history of attacking the LGBT community.
Duggar made the announcement via Twitter yesterday (see above).
“If Josh Duggar wants to make a living dehumanizing and denigrating LGBT people and their families, that’s his business, but FRC’s lies and stereotypes need to be treated as such,” said GLAAD Spokesperson Wilson Cruz. “Josh’s new boss Tony Perkins has actually accused LGBT equality advocates of being pawns of the devil. Fans of his family’s reality show ought to know that.”
