CNN Guest: ‘Christianity Is Under Attack’ in Duggar Reactions

dupreeRadio host Wayne Dupree said on CNN last night that “Christianity is under attack” in how lots of people have reacted to Josh Duggar‘s molestation confession.

He repeatedly told Don Lemon that the Duggar scandal has absolutely nothing to do with Christianity, in spite of certain pieces of commentary he’s seen to the contrary, even if the Duggars are “hiding behind it.”

Towards the end of the segment, Lemon told Dupree he was being “disingenuous and naive” to make those assertions. Dupree shot back that “Christianity is under attack” in all this because of how people are pointing to the Duggars and saying this is what happens when you’re raised in that kind of environment.

Montel Williams, who had some pretty choice words for Duggar last week, responded to Dupree’s comments on Facebook, agreeing that it shouldn’t be about Christianity but that it’s also “intellectually dishonest to pretend a large segment of the population, INCLUDING MANY CHRISTIANS are tired of people like the Duggars preaching misguided intolerance cloaked in piety.”
