Unearthed Quote From Jim Bob Duggar About People Convicted Of ‘Rape, Incest’ Goes Viral

An image posted to Reddit purportedly from 2002 shows a then-candidate for Senate Jim Bob Duggar posing with his son Josh Duggar on a political mailing flyer. Both the date of the flyer and the message written upon it have taken an ironic twist now that Josh has been arrested on charges of child pornography. Gossip Cop tracked down the origin of this flyer and can confirm that its message wasn’t altered, though it didn’t age very well at all considering the current charges Josh is facing.  

Viral Image Recalls Jim Bob Duggar’s Newly Relevant Take On Rapists, Incest

In a 2002 flyer supporting his run for U.S. Senate, Jim Bob Duggar poses with his eldest son, Josh. That year is significant, since it’s reportedly around the same time that a young Josh was caught molesting several underage girls, including a few o f his own sisters. The caption, that was possibly photoshopped on after the fact, on the flyer was a quote purportedly from Jim Bob which read, “Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.”

The quote is especially ironic since Josh Duggar not only previously admitted to molesting his own sisters, but also because Josh was recently arrested on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography. Considering the extensive charges his own son is facing, many people have pointed out the irony in Jim Bob Duggar’s view on capital punishment for committers of rape and incest. But is the quote real?

The Quote Is Absolutely Real

Gossip Cop looked into the matter and traced the quote back to its origin. Jim Bob did advocate for rape and incest to be “treated as capital crimes” in 2002. Back then, Jim Bob, who’d once served in the House of Representatives, was running for Senate. Though his bid was ultimately unsuccessful, Jim Bob did create a website for himself which included a list of his positions on various issues. 

On the issue of abortion, Jim Bob laid out his view on when the medical procedure was appropriate. He explained that he did not believe in it for cases of rape or incest, and argued that “the rapist should be executed instead of the innocent unborn baby,” since it had “committed no crime and should be allowed to live.” 

The quote about treating rape and incest as capital crimes has circulated in the past. It first made the circuit in 2015, when it was first revealed that Jim Bob and his wife, Michelle, had been aware that Josh had molested several underage girls. Several other reputable outlets at that time verified that the quote belonged to Jim Bob Duggar, though it’s likely that it’s coming back to haunt him now.

Bindi Irwin And Terri Irwin Preparing For ‘Christening Showdown’?

Is Bindi Irwin spoiling for a fight with her mother Terri Irwin? One report says that the conservationists will fight at the christening of Bindi’s baby, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell. Gossip Cop investigates this wild story.

‘Irwin Family Divided’

According to the New Idea, Terri Irwin is preparing to turn her granddaughter’s christening into a marketing exercise, worrying Bindi Irwin. A source says, “Bindi just feels she’s barely had a second to sit still and enjoy Grace’s earliest moments” because Terri keeps putting her on camera.

A source says Bindi and her husband, Chandler Powell, are willing to help Terri out to “ensure the zoo [Grace] will one day inherit is thriving — which includes allowing fans to feel a part of their conservation family.” Once a united front, the birth of Grace has changed Bindi’s priorities. She now feels like Grace should make the choice for herself if she wants to live a public life or not.

Christening? Really?

There’s just not an industry of televised christenings. Baptisms are seldom even spoken about in interviews, let alone televised. This is just a very weird choice for the outlet to make.

This outlet is making a value judgement and imposing it on the Irwin family. Bindi and Terri are very close, and there’s no infighting over unveiling photos or videos of Grace. Bindi just posted a very kind message directed at her mother on Instagram. It’s impossible to see posts like this and think the family is secretly at each other’s throats.

Bindi’s Instagram will also show loads of pictures of the brand new baby. It feels weird for Gossip Cop to have to point this out, but it’s not like Bindi Irwin is alone in posting photos of her new baby. Millions of new parents enjoy sharing photos of babies because people love seeing pictures of babies. 

It’s just cynical for the sake of being cynical to say these pictures are a “marketing exercise.” Either way, they’re coming from Bindi and not Terri, so the described argument has no basis in reality.

Other Bogus Stories

We routinely bust New Idea for its Irwin coverage. It claimed to have Bindi’s first baby photos about two months before the baby was even born. Gossip Cop already debunked its story about Terri and Bindi fighting over Steve Irwin’s fortune as well. 

This outlet even claimed that Terri and Bindi were fighting during the pregnancy and even fought in the delivery room. Terri and Bindi Irwin are still getting along as well as they always have. There will be no Grace Irwin baptism special. This story is, in a word, dumb.
