Jessa Duggar Seewald took to Twitter to share a scathing post, written by her father-in-law Michael Seewald, about her brother Josh's scandals.

The link she posted is to an essay "Grief, Shame, And Taking The LORD's Name In Vain", written on The Seewald Family blog.  Seewald does not mince words, as he begins by sharing biblical verses condemning adultery and blasphemy.  He, then, moves on to specifically addressing Josh Duggar's scandals, calling him a "pretender" who "had deceived us all".  He also adds that, after the molestation allegations had been made public earlier in the year, he thought Josh to be a changed man -- and now doesn't agree with his previous judgment.  A portion of the post reads:

With the name of God on his lips he lived a covert and extensive lifestyle of evil. While proudly saying things like, “Our family is like the epitome of conservative values”, he was looking at porn and soliciting affairs. He took a job at the Family Research Council that exists to promote the traditional family, all the while undermining his own family by violating his marriage covenant. He flourished in the fame of his family and the success of their television show, all the while betraying their trust and Christian values.

Jessa does not add her own commentary to the post on Twitter, but the fact that she shared it, encouraging her followers to read a post specifically calling out her brother, suggests that she agrees with its content.
