For those of you who are coming out in support of Josh Duggar — that is, forgiving what he has done and accepting his very public repentance — and yet still base your opposition to homosexuality on texts in Leviticus, just remember this:
You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister, your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether brought up in the family or in another home. (Leviticus 18:9 ESV)
If a man takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a disgrace, and they shall be cut off in the sight of the children of their people. He has uncovered his sister’s nakedness, and he shall bear his iniquity. (Leviticus 20:17 ESV)
I await Josh Duggar’s expulsion and exile. I await the young women’s punishment as well. There is no statute of limitations here. And if we take Leviticus seriously, forgiveness is not an option.
