MICHELLE Duggar has been slammed for complaining about the "assault on Christianity" amid her son Josh's child pornography trial.
The Counting On matriarch's eldest child Josh, 33, will face trial on November 30 after being arrested in April for "receiving and possessing child pornography".
Amid the scandal, Michelle, 55, promoted a book that urged Christians not to be "silenced".
She posted a screenshot on Facebook of the book "We Will Not Be Silenced: Responding Courageously To Our Culture's Assault On Christianity."
The TLC alum captioned it: "I just finished listening to this audiobook!
"This powerful book by Dr Erwin Lutzer has been extremely helpful and thought provoking. I highly recommend it for every Christian in America!"
Critics flocked to Reddit to slam Michelle for talking about the "assault on Christianity" amid the allegations against Josh.
One wrote: "If Michelle Duggar has anything, she has the AUDACITY to be promoting this book while her eldest is facing child porn charges."
"This is so disgusting that she is obviously trying to set herself up as a victim," another posted.
A third commented: "I hope the Duggar name is dragged through utterly vile dirt during this trial.
"If they’re going for the 'poor Josh is being persecuted because he’s a Christian' defense, I hope he/they get eviscerated in court."
Back in April, Josh pleaded not guilty to two child pornography counts.
CHILD PORN CHARGES
He was accused of possessing sick images of child pornography that were "the worst of the worst" that authorities had ever seen.
Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner said in May that downloads made from a specific file were "in the top five of the worst of the worst that I've ever had to examine".
It has been said that Josh's trial could last until December 3.
The Sun exclusively revealed from court papers that the state plans to use his past molestation scandal, which he was never charged for, at the trial and is asking the court for permission.
In 2015, a police report was published that revealed his dad Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of five young girls while they were asleep in the family home back in 2006.
The state plans to use the police report at trial, as it shows his alleged “sexual interest in young girls.”
Josh is on home confinement until his trial and is living with third party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of the Duggar family.
He has unlimited access to his children with wife Anna present.
Anna – who welcomed their seventh child this month – was accused of "smirking" as she left court with Josh back in September.
The Sun exclusively revealed that she "is convinced Josh will soon be free and able to raise his kids".
A source has since told The Sun exclusively that Anna is "extremely confident" her husband will not be jailed.
"Anna is convinced Josh will be a free man soon and be able to raise their kids, she should be worried she's going to be alone with seven children, but she isn't," they said.
