This is certainly disappointing news.
Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the super-sized Duggar Family from 19 Kids And Counting has accepted a job with the Family Research Council, an organization that has been called an anti-gay hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center.
The company as well as FRC President Tim Perkins have been very vocal towards the LGBT community over the years and they have even compared homosexuality to criminal activities.
GLAAD Spokesperson Wilson Cruz voiced his opinion on the move, saying:
"If Josh Duggar wants to make a living dehumanizing and denigrating LGBT people and their families, that's his business, but FRC's lies and stereotypes need to be treated as such. Josh's new boss Tony Perkins has actually accused LGBT equality advocates of being pawns of the devil. Fans of his family's reality show ought to know that."
Josh says he will be serving as Executive Director and will mostly be dealing with the political side of the organization. He also says he is focused on promoting "family values and right to life."
Just as Wilson said, Josh obviously has a right to work wherever he chooses. But it's unfortunate to hear he chose an organization that has worked so hard to attack the LGBT community.
