KENTUCKY: Father On TLC’s “Quiverfull” Christian Reality Show The Willis Family Arrested For Child Rape

Yet another scandal for one of TLC’s Christian reality shows. NBC News reports:

The patriarch of a family featured on the TLC reality television show “The Willis Family” was arrested Friday and charged with rape of a child stemming from an alleged sexual encounter around 12 years ago, authorities said. Toby Nathaniel Willis, 46, was arrested in Greenville, Kentucky, by agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the bureau said in a statement. The TBI said Willis traveled to Kentucky “in an effort to avoid law enforcement.”

The law enforcement agency said authorities began investigating Willis on Aug. 29, and agents “developed information Willis had a sexual encounter approximately 12 years ago with an underage female.” More details were not released. The TBI said the investigation remains ongoing. Willis is featured in the TLC show about a musical family in Nashville. The network apparently removed the show’s page from its website Saturday. TLC did not immediately return requests for comment.

From Raw Story:

Willis and his wife Brenda — like Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar — are Quiverfull parents, adherents to a Christian dominionist sect that encourages married couples to produce as many offspring as possible in order to raise an army of believers. The word “Quiverfull” comes from the Old Testament Psalms of the Christian Bible. Psalm 127 says, “Children are a blessing from the Lord…happy is the man who has his quiver full of them.”

The Duggar family has had problems of its own, with eldest son Josh confessing to molesting underage girls — including his sisters — as a teen. Then Josh was revealed to have cheated on his wife through the website Ashley Madison. When reached for comment about Willis’ arrest, a spokesperson for TLC said, “We are shocked to hear this news.”

    Once again demonstrating that those who claim to have some kind of moral authority – usually through religion – are almost certainly trying to not only convince others of that fact, but themselves as well.

    Disgusting.

      One might even say deplorable.

    • Scott Carpenter

      His press release is going to go something like this:
      Yeah, maybe I did, but that was years ago, when I was a sinner. Now I’ve been forgiven by god, so you can’t press charges. You’re persecuting me because I’m holy. And besides, she seduced me.

      • vorpal

        God: because ACTUALLY taking personal responsibility for your actions can be hard and unpleasant.

        • Personal responsibility is for non-conservatives. Christian conservatives repent.

      • Chucktech

        And besides THAT, isn’t the statute of limitations for crimes like this pig committed long since expired? Isn’t it an appallingly low 7 years?

        • Scott Carpenter

          I think I read that he’d fled the state to avoid prosecution after charges were brought. That’s an automatic “Get Into Jail Free” card in most places – with no statute of limitations.

      • IamM

        He’ll blame the child victim.

    • David L. Caster

      You would think that by now, TLC would have figured this out and stop giving those people a platform to fall off of.

      • Bill Post

        TLC …touching little children

        • douglas

          Take The Cash (TLC) and run.

      • BearEyes

        not as long as they’re still making a buck from it.

      • Ginger Snap

        It’s only about the cash.

        • IamM

          I’m starting to think it’s about more than just the cash.

      • Cpt_Justice

        Oh, I feel a conspiracy theory coming on…

        • David L. Caster

          It’s called a christofascist breeding program.

    • zhera

      Just waiting for the reports on his abuse of his own children.

      I’m not shocked by these stories anymore. They’ve become the standard from the christers, and the only questions are how many victims and will he get away with it?

    • fuzzybits

      And failing horribly.

    • Jay Silversmith

      These are a good investment strategy nowadays.

  • marshlc

    a spokesperson for TLC said, “We are shocked to hear this news.”

    Shocked, shocked I tell you!

    • Rex

      I’d be shocked if they weren’t shocked!

    • BearEyes

      somehow I doubt they’re shocked given the crap they call “programming”

    • vorpal

      I don’t even understand how these people get TV shows in the first place.

      Duggar: “Hello. I’m an authoritarian fundamentalist conservative Christian nut job who treats women like breeding cattle and has managed to knock my wife up 18 times.”

      TLC shitstain: “Oh! How accomplished! Here’s your TV show!”

      • Octoberfurst

        I wonder about that too. You would think that TLC would have to know by now that these religious nutjobs are bad news. But yet they hold them up as exemplary human beings who should be emulated. That is until they get caught raping kids. >sigh<

        • nocadrummer

          Even then, it’s treated like a speedbump on the highway of life.

  • Gustav2

    When can we shut down this child sex ring called the “Quiverfull” ?

  • Michael Smith

    Is there some kind of rule in that Quiverfull movement that you must give your children a name that starts with J? They have 12 kids with names that start with J.

    • Acronym Jim

      And not one of them is named “Hay-soos.”

      Funny, that.

      • David Walker

        Drumpf wouldn’t allow it.

    • LackofFaithify

      Actually, it may be. Had a friend growing up who’s family was into this stuff. 13 kids at last count i believe and ALL J names. Really a bit creepy when you don’t have much of a clue about who your siblings are even though in theory they are all from the same parents.

    • PeterC

      Guess that will make them closer to Jesus.

  • Jay George

    Fucking bowl headed nasty bastard.

  • JB

    TLC really does stand for Touch Little Children, doesn’t it?

    • Michael White

      I am beginning the Executives behind the TL channel need to be investigated for child abuse. So many of their shows end like this. Maybe they are also abusers.

      • Jay George

        ^Good point.

  • Steverino

    From the Quakers to the Shakers to the Quivers. What’s next, the Shivers?

    • David Walker

      The Flivvers. They’re the idle rich who acquire as many antique autos as they can. The constantly expanding, admired, somewhat crowded garages are referred to as “Flivverfuls.” The help considers them to be “Flivver fools,” but they can’t say anything.

    • greenmanTN
  • Michael Smith

    It’s almost like the sexual abuse of children is an epidemic in cults.

    • agcons

      I’m shocked at this statement. It’s not like there’s a long history of this or anything. /s

    • McSwagg

      ‘It’s almost like the sexual abuse of children is an epidemic a feature in cults.’

  • margaretpoa

    LMAO! When are those idiots in charge of programming over there going to figure out that anybody claiming to be a fundie Christian needs EXTRA scrutiny instead of less scrutiny? News flash: “Christian” doesn’t = “good”.

    • Michael White

      Or maybe they are apart of the abuse and that is how the shows are made

      • Ginger Snap

        As far as I’m concerned they are part of the abuse by giving these perverts a platform.

    • Jay George

      If they’d look at the republican party, they’d know that.

    • vorpal

      One of my guilty pleasures is watching the People’s Court.

      Sure as the sun rises, you can bet that anyone that shows up in court wearing a cross and mentioning the fact that they’re Christian or go to church at some point in the hearing is going to be transparently lying scum, without fail.

      Even though, I believe, the judge Marilyn Milian is Catholic, you can almost hear her roll her eyes when someone drops the C word.

      • Acronym Jim

        I LOVE Marilyn Milian.

        • vorpal

          She kind of hard not to love, isn’t she? She’s beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, and charming as all hell. Her husband is very lucky to have her.

    • Scott Carpenter

      Hehehehehe. If you go to TLC’s website and look for The Willis Family page, it gives you an error 404: page not found. I guess someone decided they didn’t want to advertise that TLC is connected to yet another pedophile.

      So, you’re saying your family pimps you out?

      You must have a sweet ass!

      • Jamsie

        I do but that’s not important now

  • Reality.Bites

    When reached for comment about Willis’ arrest, a spokesperson for TLC said, “We are shocked to hear this news about someone who isn’t a Duggar.”

  • JT

    His defense will be that Jeebus told him to do it.

  • Boy Elvis

    Another one of these shitstains turns out to be a lunatic? Well, color me surprised.

  • ColdCountry

    Give someone absolute authority over anyone – as the Quiverfull movement teaches that the father has over the family – and you get abuse. Every. Time.

  • safari

    I’m detecting a pattern.

  • Jeffrey

    Why is there never any real discussion about he link between almost all religions and child rape? Why in the 21st century do we still pretend like these are outliers?

    • FAEN

      Even when there is a discussion the Church hands over wads of cash and that’s the end of the discussion. That shouldn’t be the case.

    • IamM

      Yes, it’s not like it’s complicated: Conmen and abusers know about easy marks and protective coloration.

  • StraightGrandmother

    Oh it is another one of those families where the children work to support the parents.

  • LackofFaithify

    TLC: Glorifying child molestation since some christian programing director got promoted. Drop your pants kids, here cums my quiver!

  • JustSayin’

    Gee more christian kiddie fuckers….who is surprised? Not I said the blind man

  • greenmanTN

    I can’t even pretend to be surprised by shit like this anymore.

    “Oh, a member of a sect that views women as breed sows and who thinks women are their possessions, with ownership of daughters being passed off to husbands, only if approved by their father, is a control-freak sexual abuser?”

    Ummm, duh?

    I can’t manage my own “surprise face” so I’m going to borrow one.

        “‘But it’s been so successful (i.e., made a ton of money for us). Clearly the American public is curious about its fellow citizens. It’s the duty of Touching Little Childre…sorry, I mean The Learning Channel to exploit the fuck out of these unconscionable people.’ Did that come out right? Oh, jeez. I meant ‘to present these wholesome xn alternative lifestyles.’ There. That should do it. Send that to the usual press types. Thanks, you plucky little wench. Still want some ‘dinner’ later?”

        • nocadrummer

          I MUST be old. I can remember when you could actually LEARN something on “The Learning Channel”. That is, something other than “trailer trash” will continue to live and behave like trailer trash, even with millions to spend.

          Which reminds me, whatever happened to “morals clauses”? You know, where they lost their contracts & money if they did something incredibly stupid on purpose. Say, like raping children?

          • David Walker

            As I recall, TLC was started by a program director at a PBS station who liked the philosophy but not the pay check. I’m not sure what happened, but he left quite a while ago. As for the morals clause, it may well be in some contracts. However, I think we’ve seen that a morals clause is a minor consideration when stacked up against the millions to be made off white trash degenerates. I’ve read that the Duggars even got final approval on crew members. 5 years ago, I’d have thought, “No way.” Now it doesn’t surprise me at all.

    Which kid is molesting a sibling?
    Which one is gay?
    Which one is going to get knocked up?

    Edited for clarity

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Stonewall and Jedi are definitely playing for a different team. 🙂

    • Chucktech

      Slightly tangent to that, when I saw this article on another news site, I had no idea who the fuck these people were and the article on NBCnews.com didn’t mention anything about their religion. Just that, like the Duggars, NBC said, it’s another black eye for TLC. But I just KNEW that these looked like some pious, holier-than-thou, gawdly family a la the Duggars. Sure enough, that’s exactly what this scum is the patriarch of.

  • marshlc

    I’m an old person who was raised as a Catholic, back in the days before all the Catholics said “Screw what the Pope says” and went on the pill. So I went to school with kids from families this big, and my own family – there were six of us – was a normal and totally unremarkable size.

    And our moms never looked anything like this woman, or the Duggarmother. Beautiful long hair? No, thin grey hair scraped back in a bun or ponytail, or else cut short. Decent figure for a middle-aged lady? No, either slat thin or lumpy baggy bodies that looked pregnant even when she wasn’t. And that’s if you saw the mothers of the really big families at all – they seldom left the house.

    And the kids either ran wild, or went straight home after school and were never seen, because they had chores at home.

    Don’t really know what I’m getting at here, except that I smell a rat. I’ve known quite a few families of twelve, fourteen, fifteen kids, and they’re nothing like this. Maybe they just rent all those kids….

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild
    • Scott Carpenter

      I was raised Mormon. My cousin was told, after her 7th child in 6 years, that if she got pregnant again, it would probably kill her. Her husband told the doctor that if she died, she’d die doing god’s will. My bishop (equivalent to a catholic priest) had 14 kids. Bishop’s kids ran wild, and some of them wound up in jail or prison, that was just accepted.
      This whole “god’s army” thing just frightens me – and is a big reason I’m a liberal who owns firearms.

      • Skeptical_Inquirer

        What a horrible husband! I bet he thought some poor younger woman with a newer uterus would appear in a jiffy to replace her just like he prayed for.

        I think that a lot of these huge families depend on the older kids to raise the younger ones and if that fails, it fails spectacularly.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      I also don’t get why the women don’t show outwardly what a dozen pregnancies do to one. Even one or two pregnancies often make quite a few changes.

      In the case of the TV families, I am guessing plastic surgery, Spandex and a tub of makeup (and most of the actual parenting is dumped on the older girls & maybe help from a secret maid or two) but I can’t help but think the non-famous Quiverfulls actually do look like the women you remember.

  • Talisman

    The only thing that shocks me is that his victim was female.

    • Chucktech

      Seems like it’s only (or mainly) the Catholics who do the homo thing.

    • Adam King

      Child molesters often pick whatever gender’s more convenient.

    • Todd20036

      Pesos usually pick their own gender because they have easier access to them. People aren’t surprised to see men around boys or women around girls.

      In some circumstances, girls are more accessible to men than boys, so you get what happened here.

  • TerrenceEncore Jones

    This show is going to pulled entirely off the air waves right? Nowhere to be seen again right?

    • Palmer

      It’ll be taken off the air for “retooling” and be back in a few months.

      Retooling in this case means some bullshit therapy for the molester, or similar nonsense.

    • Cuberly

      TLC cancelled it last April, that’s what the article said.

      Wonder if they’ll continue with their plans to have a “special” Duggar episode where Josh gets to spill his guts and beg forgiveness yada yada….(yep, this is a thing they’re supposedly working on.)

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    “Stonewall”?? Well now, Freudian choice of call signs? And “jedi”, well now, I dare say there’s a couple of quivering quivers who would do well to leave when they can.

      There also seems to be a correlation between having an absurd number of children (and the mindset of “my DNA is superior so I must reproduce it as much as possible because God personally told me to” necessary to make that happen) and criminally abusive behavior.

    Dear small minded hypocritical Christians-Having a Quiverfull of children worked when there were 12 people on the planet but now that we have 7 BILLION give or take, the planet does NOT need wackadoodles to spit out gigantic, crazy ass families. God is NOT going to suddenly give us more resources. You do know that right?

    If you must have 12 children why don’t you actually do the Christian thing and FUCKING adopt them!

    • Treant

      They wouldn’t fucking adopt them, they’d adopt them for fucking. Obviously.

    • thatotherjean

      They do that, too–usually from underdeveloped countries, sometimes in bunches, whether or not they can afford them, believing they’re saving heathen children. When adoptions don’t work out–when the kids don’t adapt well to fundy religion and discipline–they’ve been known to pass them on to other fundy families without bothering to inform their state’s social services agencies, the adoption agency, or the kids’ country of origin. And they think they’re being so damned holy.

      • Jay Silversmith

        It’s more about getting government subsidies than saving heathen children.

    • McSwagg

      In ancient times, only a few would survive to adulthood. Also, the parents depended wholly on their surviving children for support in their old age, so it was important to have several children survive to adulthood.

      I’m only guessing, but it sounds like your Suprise-O-Meter has a learning algorithm in its program.

  • Ernest Endevor

  • TLC: Used to be an education channel, now it’s nothing but a freak show.

    • Ginger Snap

      Remember back in the day when the GOP was trying it’s best to shut down PBS because of channels like TLC/Discovery made PBS obsolete. I see this is what they really wanted.

    • NZArtist

      I’m one of 10 children (yes, my parents were Catholic) and I can attest it’s a horrible way to be brought up. You get virtually zero one-on-one parental contact. Mostly I just remember constant fighting between factions of children. My parents weren’t bad parents – they did the best they could. But it’s just not good enough with a swarm of children.

  • James

    First of all, when it’s sex with a minor it’s not an “encounter,” it’s rape.

    Second, why is TLC constantly allowing these cults to use their airwaves to spread their political propaganda?

    • As I indicated in my comment, TLC has decided its niche market — which used to be educational programming (i.e. The LEARNING Channel) — is now human freak shows.

      People who live their lives as a practicing cult — especially those involving unusual sexual practices such as cranking out as many babies as one woman’s uterus can sustain — are among the easiest freaks to find.

      • IamM

        That’s what I thought before, now I’m thinking maybe it’s worse than that. Like Dominionists or alt-right or something in influential positions or something.

        • Reality.Bites

          They’re owned by Discovery Communications, who also own American Heroes Channel, Animal Planet, Destination America, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, Investigation Discovery, Oprah Winfrey Network, Science and Velocity.

          I don’t think they have any agenda beyond making money.

          Their channel started out, like many others, serving a particular niche taste. And what they discovered (no pun intended) is that most people regardless of their niche interests, enjoy reruns of shows from their youth and early adulthood, new scripted shows about people like themselves or like they wish they were, but either way more attractive, and trashy reality shows about people they can feel superior to even if they’re supermodel hot.

          • IamM

            I’m aware of the general history and market factors you mention, I’m just saying there’s enough clustering in the data points to make you wonder if there’s something behind it besides just a willingness to air trash for profit.

            Yes, so far not nearly enough blips to say ‘there probably is’ but just enough to start wondering if maybe it’s not a coincidence.

      Except the cons say that only 1 to 2% are gay. Not more. They get their stats from some hate group or fraud org on the right.

  • Uncle Mark

    TLC lives up to their new acronym again. They went from “The Learning Channel” to “Touching Little Children.”

    • kareemachan

      I am trying to think if there are *any* shows on TLC that I do watch or could stomach watching. I enjoyed ‘What Not to Wear’, but now…. zilch. Ugh.

      • IamM

        Yeah, nevermind the educational stuff at this point I’m nostalgic for the fluff & ufo conspiracies.

      • Uncle Mark

        Once they became a cheap “reality show” network, I never watched them again.

  • Frostbite

    And yet the show will disgustingly go on.

  • Ninja0980

    Want to bet he railed against LGBT folks as a danger to children?

    • Gianni

      Betting against that would be a sure loss of one’s money. Of course, he has to have spoken against the evils of The Gay and how children are put in jeopardy by us F.gs! That’s required if one is in the public eye espousing the blessings of wife, home, and many children. God requires that, or at least God’s mouthpieces require that.

  • Hank

    Just wonder how many of these kids will eventually “come out”!! /s

    TLC, Home of Child Rapists and their followers.

    That means she was 12 or under.

    Tennessee “statutory rape” laws:

    Tennessee “rape of a child” laws:

    Gosh, he looks nice. Not. At. All. Yikes. Scary man.

  • jobog

    Let me fucking guess; Home schooling for his kids?

  • Kenster999

    I wonder if there’s going to eventually be a silver lining to this movement: with such large families, there’s more likely to be gay kids, which *might* lead them to reject homophobic beliefs once they realize they have a gay person in their family. The Lord works in mysterious ways, indeed!

    • boatboy_srq

      It’s either that, or science WILL find the genetic markers for non-heterosexuality, and the Quiverfull wingnuts will embrace abortion on order to inhibit queer offspring. Worth it? I don’t think so.

      • McSwagg

        If the offspring carry the ‘gay’ genetic marker, then so do the parents they inherited it from. If they are going to abort the fetus, then they must also eliminate the parent to be consistent. Sadly, we know consistency is not a feature of their cult.

  • ExGayTherapyKills

    Straight Christian and Catholic pedophiles lead the top people who rape and abuse children.

    • McSwagg

      I doubt you intended to imply that catholics weren’t christians, but it is a common claim among the evilgelicals of the south were I grew up.

  • TheManicMechanic

    From now on, it should be automatically assumed that every over-the-top crazy evangelical is a heinous child molester, rapist, or criminal of the highest order making a lot of noise in order to hide and deflect from that fact.

  • Duane Dimitrov

    I am shocked that these Good Christians™ with their precious, precious principles and moral superiority could be casught doing something like this!

    It’s unthikable! They’re CHRISTIANS! I mean, hello!, they have a PATENT on morality! They alone are the judges of others!

    I. Am. Shocked.

    TLC has turned into “Perp Central.”

  • um, ick? TLC is freaking me out. are they doing this on purpose? producers usually research and do background on potential “reality tv” folks. i think i will never click that channel again. srsly. “touching little children” should not be a show and isn’t entertaining or funny in any way.
