Ben Seewald takes on a shocking new role.

On InstagramKatie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball revealed to fans that Ben would be officiating the funeral of the late Tommy Lester. As the YouTuber reported, Tommy passed away early in the morning on Sunday, June 25. Tommy was the uncle of Jim Bob Duggar and was the brother of Mary Duggar, who passed away in 2019. Tommy’s cause of death was cardiac arrest. After he was pronounced dead, the police visited Jim Bob’s home to share the sad news.

How is the Duggar son-in-law going against his values?

In her post about Ben Seewald officiating the funeral, Katie Joy revealed to fans that Tommy Lester was gay. Tommy’s husband, Lawrence, was at home with him at the time of his death.

Katie Joy said:

“The man that says people should deny their gay feelings and pray away the gay. Giving the last rights to an openly gay man that was estranged from the family for decades.”

Then, she put the blame on Jim Bob, because he supposedly arranged Tommy’s funeral. So, he may have been the one that asked Ben to officiate.
