I’m guessing that Mr. D’Souza, in his university and academic circles, had Christians around him who knew about and approved of his affair with the woman he was not married to.

They looked at the marriage as being over, even though it was not officially over in the secular legal department of life.

They did not see sex outside of marriage as a big deal. And, some probably did not want to “cast stones” to correct or challenge him. And some did not want to lose their jobs.

Mr. D’Souza deceived himself with rationalizations and the Christians around him abetted his fall.

This is the story of modern Christian American life.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid you're quite likely right.

Here are some further comments by Rev. Tim Bayly, a PCA minister who pastors a particularly aggressive church; his father turned down the presidency of King’s College years ago.

Let’s just say Rev. Bayly is a lot more fiery than I’m being in this situation. He’s blasting not only D’Souza but evangelicals in general for letting this kind of gross wickedness happen:

If so, we as evangelicals need to get our own house in order. On this point, the Roman Catholics are better than too many of us evangelicals in defending marriage.
