Duck Dynasty’s Robertson family has found themselves in hot water this week after they made some “controversial” comments about the Josh Duggar sex scandal.
Though the liberal media has completely turned on the devoutly Christian Duggar family in the wake of the scandal, Jase and Missy Robertson spoke out this week urging Americans to forgive the 19 Kids & Counting star.
“You can forgive somebody, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences for your actions,” Jase said, acknowledging that Josh should be punished for what he has done.
“As far as the relationship, that’s gotta be her decision whether or not she wants to go on without him,” his wife Missy added, according to CNS News. “She certainly has that right, because he interrupted their marriage with those affairs, but forgiveness is not really a choice, you know, if you want forgiveness from God.”
“I think forgiving and forgetting are two different things,” she added.
Missy went on to say that even though what Josh did was wrong, it doesn’t mean he should not be forgiven.
“It’s gonna be hard to stand in front of Jesus on judgment day and say, ‘I expect forgiveness, but I’m not gonna forgive,’” Missy concluded. “And God teaches against that. He says, ‘You must forgive’ — and it’s not easy.”
