More From The "Family Values" Crowd

Dick Dewert, founder of Alberta's own fundie televangical station, The Miracle Channel, has resigned having been caught out in an extra-marital affair.

I'll give this clown slightly more credit than the terminally dishonest Ted Haggard - he at least has admitted that he 'dunnit' without lying to the public repeatedly.

However, these same clowns are the people who repeatedly argue against equality rights for minorities and decry the "immorality" of the rest of us "unsaved" heathens.

There is a word for people like that - and it is "Hypocrite". No amount of self-effacement and begging forgiveness changes the utter hypocrisy of these "leaders" of the Religious Reich. They rail against many "social evils" that they see in the world, and yet they themselves are so often caught "in the act" it's not even funny. It is not the act itself they should be ashamed of, it is the very hypocrisy of their own lives contradicting what they claim to represent.

The common excuse for the hypocrite is restoration. It seems that if you attach faith or Rev to your name, you can say whatever you want, do whatever you want and continue to be a dishonest hack.
