Jim Bob Duggar Feuds With Ben Seewald Over Religious Beliefs
Looks like it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows in the Duggar clan. Seems as though the patriarch of the family – the ill-named Jim Bob Duggar – is clashing with a few of his sons-in-law. The latest person to cross Jim Bob is Jessa Duggar’s husband, Ben Seewald.
Ben and Jessa have been married since 2014, but recently Ben and Jim Bob’s religious views have started to clash. The Duggars are known for their strong religious beliefs and their strict dating policies. So, it’s a bit odd that a Duggar sister would find herself married to someone that doesn’t meet only the highest religious standards.
“Their beliefs aren’t always going to reflect every little ideal Jim Bob and Michelle embrace,” says a source according to Radar. “There are a few differences in religious thought processes.”
Jim Bob believes that salvation comes from the belief that Jesus died on the cross, forgiving the sin of everyone. Well, Ben seems to be the Calvinism thought where any and everything that happens has been chosen by God himself. To those of us who aren’t schooled in religion, it might be hard to see what the big deal is.
“Every one of the guys have married into the family have their own way of thinking,” says a source close to the Duggar family.
These “differences in thinking” have been the source of a few family feuds over the years. Most recently, Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, angered the family when his ignorant comments got him and his wife fired from their TLC show, Counting On. Personally, I think they are just mad because Jill can’t reap the benefits of reality TV anymore.
There has also been a bit of tension surrounding their daughter Joy-Anna and her new husband, Austin Forsyth. These two lovebirds were forced to follow the same strict dating rules as everyone else. No hand holding, no hugging, and NO SEX, before marriage. However, rumor has it, they broke a couple of those rules.
“Most everyone tries to agree to overlook things that aren’t in alignment with their thinking,” the source continues. “If there’s something that comes out they tend to work it out quickly.”
Who do you think will be next on the Jim Bob and Michelle shit list?
