Well, at least he's not gay*

Yet another voice of  strict Christian morality has been exposed as a fraud and a hypocrite. The latest phony to fall is Stephen Green, self-appointed guardian of  England's morality. Turns out he's a wife beater, a child abuser, and a horrible husband and father. Here's the headline:

In public he rails against immorality as the voice of Christian Britain but in private he is a wife beater, says his former partner

Isn't that grand? What it is about charismatic Christian preachers? Why do so many of them turn out to be such skunks (and why do blogs like Cross Currents end up defending so many of them after their foibles have been revealed?) And, because this is a Jewish blog, let me ask the follow-up on everyone's mind:  Are Jewish preachers fakes, too? (Certainly some of them are.) And is there some correlation between begin a charismatic preacher and being a screaming fraud? (Requires study; the evidence I have is all anecdotal)

*This is a tongue in cheek reference to the many professional Christian homophobes who turned out to be gay themselves.
