Will Amazon Share Corrupt Duggar Family Church in New Documentary?
Duggar Family News reveals that the Duggar’s church may end up on one of the new documentaries on Amazon this year. This year has already started off in a rough way for many of the Duggars and their church. In fact, Jinger Duggar Vuolo has written a tell-all book about growing up in this cult-like church. She pointed out that she lived in fear as a child and it was all based on what this church taught her. Her parents continue to stand by their beliefs in this church and now it looks as if the people at Amazon have announced a documentary that will expose this church.

In Jinger’s book, she opened up more about the IBLP church. Of course, she is not the first to claim that she felt as if she was living in a cult as she was growing up. This church has been accused of brainwashing its members and also sexual assault and harassment. The founder of the church, Bill Gothard was forced to step down in 2014. Many women came forward and accused him of sexual harassment.
