The Reddit user added that Jim Bob Duggar could have even bought a bigger house back then and provided healthy meals for his kids. The poster even recalled that Jill used to sneak off foods and secretly eat them in the bathroom, showing how bad their food management was back in the day. It was also revealed that the $250K was all his own money, and none of it came from donations.

  • “You know what kind of house you could have bought in 2001 for 250k!!!! Good god. How do these older kids talk to their parents? The abuse is a whole other animal.”
  • “To save that much and not use it to house and feed all those children is NOT what Jesus had in mind. Especially using it for political gain. I hope in the afterlife the entity known as Jesus pops in to personally tell them they got it very wrong. Idk, I like visual. He should bring a trans soul with him and walk up hand in hand to deliver this blow. Lovingly, of course.”
  • “They never should have had atv show. And those a**holes at TLC should have reported them to child services. So many people failed those children.”
  • “The story about the green beans is so sad. I don’t begrudge families that eat canned veggies – many must – but the fact that she felt the need to hide it when she needed something to eat.”

  1. You can armchair quarterback anyone’s life. I can tell you many things from my childhood that other people could look at and say what a terrible family I had, and how that’s abuse!” I can also tell you a child’s perspective of things are just that, that of a child’s. I can also tell you that the way you remember somethings from your childhood may not have actually happened as you are remembering them. And you also are not getting the full context of what happened because you are getting only one persons viewpoint. I can also tell you that it is NOT our place to judge what may, or may not have happened. And certainly not to be as nasty and vicious as a lot of you find so easily to be. Here’s some reminders for everyone out there, no one’s perfect, least of all any of you all, people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and finally, ONLY someone who is “WITHOUT SIN” has the right to throw any stones anyway. And I can tell you there was only ONE person who is sinless, and sadly, most of you don’t know, or believe in Him.
