Jinger Duggar Vuolo Calls Childhood Religious Beliefs “Cult-Like”

Gothard resigned from the IBLP board of directors in 2014 amid allegations against him that claim he molested and sexually harassed women in the organization, per NBC News. At the time, Gothard addressed the allegations in a since-deleted statement on his website: “My actions of holding of hands, hugs, and touching of feet or hair with young ladies crossed the boundaries of discretion and were wrong.”

According to NBC News, IBLP launched an internal investigation, which ruled that Gothard “had acted in an inappropriate manner” and would no longer be a part of the organization. Despite this, IBLP noted they found no criminal activity in his actions.

Two years ago, Jinger shared about her journey to leaving IBLP behind. In her 2021 book The Hope We Hold: Finding Peace in the Promises of God, co-written with husband Jeremy Vuolo, Jinger details the start of her journey to breaking away from IBLP.

“I wanted to see if the convictions I’d always held were true,” she wrote. “I wanted to examine why I believed what I believed, and if those beliefs were supported by the Scripture. Now, as I reexamined and compared them to scripture, my convictions were changing.”
