Josh Duggar and Josh Komisarjevsky: A Tale of Two Joshes

Homeschoolers Anonymous

By R.L. Stollar, HA Community Coordinator

Two Joshes. Both ATI alumni. Both perpretrators of serious crimes.

But each one received very different reactions from the conservative Christian milieu in which they grew up. And those reactions are worth taking a closer look at.

Josh Duggar

Josh Duggar was homeschooled by his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, with the Advanced Training Institute — the homeschooling curriculum developed by Inge Cannon (the former Director of HSLDA’s National Center for Home Education) for Bill Gothard’s Institute in Basic Life Principles. According to a police report released last week, Josh molested at least five young girls. Josh began molesting these girls around the age of 14, despite him claiming that he “accepted Christ at the age of seven.” Josh’s crimes were not reported for at least a year, and only then they were reported to a police officer who himself was later convicted…

OPINION: Is there still life in Sepp Blatter after FIFA scandal escalates?

CitiBlog Milton Keynes

FOR many people, the arrest of high-ranking FIFA executives by a Swiss/US probe has signaled a horizon shift.

The last few years have seen football fans despair at FIFA corruption scandals, which have somehow managed to peak ever after the award of the 2022 tournament to Qatar. But with the organisation remaining as strong and, as John Oliver put it, “comically grotesque” as ever, it seemed like the gravy train was continuing to hurtle along at rapid speed. Sure, there were the odd scalps – including the noticeable one of former Vice President Jack Warner – but most of the time, it felt like FIFA had used them up and spat them out.

The fatalism had continued, with a number of opponents stepping down in the race to be FIFA President, leaving Jordan’s Prince Ali the only competitor to sport’s ultimate despot Sepp Blatter. This Friday (29/05) sees the election…
