Derick Dillard: I Don’t Like Child Molesters, Okay?!?
Derick Dillard has already made it clear.
He doesn’t like gay men or gay women or transgender individuals or really anyone with a set of beliefs different than his.
But might the former TLC personality actually be a fan of .. child molesters?!?
Dillard himself was forced to answer this question late last week after it was posed to him by a user of social media.
We know Derick has gotten himself into lots of scalding hot water in the past for his controversial (read: wrong and bigoted) views, but how did this possibly come up?!?
It all started when Dillard posted a quote from the Bible that reads: “Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to the Lord.’ (Proverbs 21:10).”
Sort of random, right?
But not if you’re familiar with Dillard’s background, as one astute commenter pointed out.
“So in other words, he hates people who bully teens online and call gay families a ‘travesty’ yet have no problem with child molesters,” this person wrote.
When another inquired, asked the disgraced ex-reality star for a response, Derick simply replied:
And this may very well be accurate.
Dillard may, indeed, take issue with child molesters. (Which would mean he ought to take issue with brother-in-law Josh Duggar.)
But here’s the thing:
When your reputation is such that people legitimately believe you may be defending child molsters online, it may be time to reevaluate pretty much everything about your life.
Not that we expect this from Dillard any time soon.
This is someone who was dismissed by TLC due to his string of homophobic comments over the years and who has called out transgender teen Jazz Jennings on multiple occasions.
He also said the following about Nate & Jeremiah by Design stars Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent after they welcomed a son into the world.
It’s sad how blatant the liberal agenda is, such that it both highlights and celebrates a lifestyle so degrading to children on public television as if it should be normal.
Why would anyone possibly think someone such as Derick Dillard would be okay with child molesters?
After all, he’s such an upstanding citizen who always stands up for the oppressed and the marginalized.
We’re just kidding.
This guy totally sucks.
