When Josh Duggar confessed to not only cheating on his wife, Anna, but also having an addiction to pornography, the 27-year-old called himself “the biggest hypocrite ever” as he was being unfaithful while promoting “traditional family values” as the executive director of FRC Action, a lobbying PAC affiliated with the Family Research Council.
But now, another layer of his deep-rooted hypocrisy has been exposed — as it’s been revealed he once visited a jail where he lectured about “anger resolution.”

Ironically, it was Anna’s brother Daniel Keller — who has since slammed Josh as a “pig” — who invited him to participate.
“In December of 2007, Anna’s brother called me and asked if I would be able to help him with an Anger Resolution Seminar in a Florida State Prison,” he wrote on his website.
“I told him that I would have to pray about it…and I immediately felt God say, ‘YES!’ The next month I found myself again driving the nearly 1,000-mile trip to North Florida.”

Josh lectured prisoners about leading a Christian life, even though just one year prior he was investigated for molesting five girls — including four of his sisters — as a young teenager.
Josh’s brother-in-law Daniel isn’t the only one who has since turned his back on the father-of-four.

Younger sister Jessa publicly dissed her brother by sharing her father-in-law, Michael Seewald’s, blog post that labeled Josh a “pretender” for continually failing to practice what he preaches.
“It distresses me to say that Josh Duggar’s greatest sin is a byproduct of the sum total of his secretly sinful lifestyle. That is, that by his hypocrisy, he blasphemed the name of God,” the elder Seewald wrote.
“He claimed to be a Christian, but by his deeds he has suggested otherwise… While proudly saying things like, 'Our family is like the epitome of conservative values,' he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs.”

In addition to his troubling practices when it comes to his lifestyle choices, Josh may not have been the best candidate to lecture on “anger resolution,” either.
Josh’s “mistress” — porn star and stripper Danica Dillon — recounted her “terrifying” encounter with Josh, telling In Touch, “He was manhandling me, basically tossing me around like I was a rag doll.”
