If you don't say a word to defend your own beliefs, it doesn't make you any better in the same situation.
    But that isn't what we're talking about, that's not what I was referring to in the post you responded to, and you're obviously trying to find any way you can to defend this guy or something.

    Come on, let's be honest here; stop trying to rewrite the situation to fit your liking. This guy promoted abstinence -- and made a video about it with his mistress. Seriously. He preached to everyone what their morals should be, worked to get government money to support his plans, and made it a core part of his image.

    That is WAY different from every other married person in the world, a big percentage of whom have at one time or another cheated. Way different, and you know it.

And as for "telling them how they should live", none of these so-called hypocrites are ever known for preaching against adultery, so that's not even relevant.
    But he DID, that's the point. Or are you telling me that while he was waving the Bible around, telling everyone that homosexuality and sex without marriage was evil, he added a footnote somewhere saying "Oh, but adultery is fine"? His entire image was of the Christian moral crusader.
