Part of a comment from Jim Bob and Michele Duggar from the Duggar Family Facebook may be viewed here:
Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God.

The Family Research Council is based in Washington, D.C. and said the following in a statement about Josh Duggar’s resignation:
Today Josh Duggar made the decision to resign his position as a result of previously unknown information becoming public concerning events that occurred during his teenage years.
Josh believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work. We believe this is the best decision for Josh and his family at this time. We will be praying for everyone involved,” concluded Perkins.
TMZ reported the Duggar family was preparing for an appearance on Oprah in December of 2006 when an email was received alerting Oprah of the molestation reports. The show was canceled and the information in that email was given to authorities.
Many commenters on social medial sites are questioning why this information was not shared when accusations were made in 2006. Some claim the parents, Jim Bob and Michele Duggar may have hidden facts in the beginning.
