Last night, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar sat down for an interview with Fox News to discuss the molestation scandal — and to set the record straight on a few items still up in the air.

According to the couple, their son Josh molested four of their daughters, as well as a babysitter for two years, while the girls were both sleeping and awake. They said that Josh came to them with a "soft heart" and that he was truly sorry for his actions, and that they did what they felt was right at the time.

Josh Duggar's sisters Jessa, 22, and Jill, 24 have both identified themselves as victims — and Jessa has stood up on her brother's behalf. She told Kelly that what her brother did was "very wrong," but that he is not a child molester, pedophile, or rapist. "People get mad at me for saying that," she acknowledged. "But I can say that because I'm one of the victims."

Indeed, the whole family appears to be rallied behind its eldest son. "We had all resolved it, we had forgiven, we had moved on in life," Michelle Duggar told Megyn Kelly. But, Twitter users aren't so quick to forgive and put the problem in the past. Here's what they had to say about the interview:
