RE: WHY the vitriol and hatred again D’Souza? You and others are eager to throw him under the bus here.

Excuse me? Now you can read my mind huh?

I don’t read this article with joy, gladness or any tinge of celebration at all.

I see it as a defeat for the cause of conservatism and Christianity.

However, we do have to hold D’Souza and people who we support to a higher standard, especially when they hold high positions in Christian institutions.

As for this :

Are we now supposed to kick D’Souza to the curb? Burn his books?

Let me show you where the fallacy of the argument is -— If a health teacher tells his students, with full scientific evidence, that smoking is bad for your health and sternly warns his students NOT TO SMOKE and his students later spied him smoking privately somewhere, would it be smart or even logical for his students to conclude this — THEREFORE IT IS OK TO SMOKE !!

Would an aborted baby stop being a human being, liberal ideas, stop being harmful to the country just because a leading conservative fails to live up to his ideals?

Would Jesus Christ cease to be Son of God and Savior of the world just because priests who preach His gospel have been found to be pedophiles?

You are really on a contentious roll today. Between this post and this other post which was pulled - but re-instated, you are stirring up the pot.

Good Work!
