I believe in virtue. Its the value that pays tribute to the vice called hypocrisy. Hypocrisy should be properly understood as the absence of standards rather than the failure to live up to standards.
I believe the absence of standards is debauchery. Hypocrisy is the failure to live up to standards which one proclaims and usually demands of others. That is why Craig is a hypocrite.

We're all hypocrites because all of us fall short and sin at times. We freely admit it. What makes us different from the Left is we do not deny the necessity of living up to the standards we proclaim for ourselves and demand others follow.
