As everyone and their mom knows by now, the Duggars, along with their show, 19 Kids and Counting are dealing with a massive scandal. If you're one of the few that doesn't know yet, Josh Duggar was accused of and an investigation was opened in 2006 for molesting five underage girls.

The Duggar family is dealing with it, well, probably the best way they know how. They're trying to downplay the severity of the issues by claiming that the reports of the incidents were "teenage mistakes."
Even though they've indirectly stated this, People reports that a source has said that Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob are still very "devastated" over the leak stating:
"They know that they did the best they could, but it doesn't mean they're not filled with regret."
The source goes on to say that Jim Bob and Michelle are focused on their faith and family and not the fate of their television show. The couple made a joint statement to People saying:
"We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family."
While TLC has pulled all episodes and reruns of 19 Kids and Counting, they still have yet to make a decision on whether they will continue the show.
Well it if is true, at least the Duggar family has their priorities in the correct moral order this time. What do you think? Do you still think the network should axe the show?
