Dinesh D'Souza resigned as president of The King's College after a magazine story revealed that he was engaged to another woman while still married to his wife of 20 years. The Board of Trustees of The King's College, a Christian institution based in New York, accepted his resignation Thursday.

“2016” was well done. We ordered the DVD and plan to share it with friends.

“The board spent hours in meetings this week after World Magazine reported that D’Souza and a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II, stayed in the same hotel room last month. The two were attending an apologetics conference...”

Bedding down with a lady that is not your wife at an apologetics conference?

At lease D’Souza has a great sense for what is ironic.

The Clinton-Axelrod-Alinsky politics of personal destruction. Sure, the guy may have screwed up, but it has NOTHING to do with “2016”, but then has everything to do with “2016”.

I think Christian conservative leaders do more harm to Christianity when they get caught in these sexual escapades than all the trash liberals and atheists throw at it combined.

Forget Obama, Dinesh was one of the leading Christian apologists in the country defending Christianity(anywhere, anytime), as well as objective morality, and now he is just another hypocrite who got caught with his pants down and has not only humiliated himself but has made Christian conservatism a national laughingstock, again.

Suppose you found verifiable information that a person who wrote a book or produced a movie that was critical of Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney had transgressed their marriage vows, would you take steps to publicize that information?

How many “Denise Odie Joseph II’s” can there be?

(Was her mother Denise Odie Joseph I? A couple of my Latin American friends call their namesake daughters “Jr.,” as in “My mom’s not here right now: this is Gilda Jr.”)

If he’d stayed with the Catholic Church, he would have known that being engaged while married is wrong - whether “legal” or not.

Geez.

That is exactly how I feel. They shame us as well as themselves.
And, it gives the other side such ammunition.

I was disappointed to read this and marveled at the stupidity of Dinsih.

The hypocrisy is stunning and the timing was perfect for the liberal media.

In the article he says he has been separated from his wife for 2 years - something she initiated. He only met his new girlfriend 3 months ago.

You might like to consider he’s showing we’re all human. I do not consider his failings personally nor should any other especially Christians.

He is accepting responsibility, taking his medicine and moving forward trying to live up to his beliefs.

I don’t want you to change your standards. I want to know why the public figures on our side, knowing they will be under a morals microscope, proceed to do such stupid things.

Seriously, get a divorce, and move on with your life. But to not finish one chapter before going on with the next is such a stupid error in judgement and morals.

Amen. He says he was separated for two years and, coincidentally, just happened to file for divorce on the day he introduced this other woman as his fiance. After knowing her for three months. That’s a story that’s hard to believe. I wonder what his wife’s side of the story is.

Hypocrisy is the language of the left. Since absolutely no one is perfect and everyone's a sinner, then every single Christian is a hypocrite by the standards of the left. That's not a premise we should accept.

‘2016: Obama’s America’ filmmaker—I am not having an affair
fox news ^ | october 17, 2012 | Dinesh D’Souza

Posted on Thursday, October 18, 2012 5:13:46 AM by lowbridge

A recent article in World magazine gives the false impression that I, a married man, had an affair with a woman Denise Joseph at a Christian conference in Charlotte, N.C. The article alleges that I shared a hotel room with her and introduced her as my fiancé. Finally it states that I filed for divorce only on the day I was confronted about my conduct by intrepid reporter Warren Smith. Here are the facts:

1. My wife Dixie and I have been separated for two years. Dixie approached me and demanded this [a separation] before I came to King’s College to become its president in late August 2010. I informed the chairman of the college about this at the time. I also informed the reporter who wrote the World article, Warren Smith, but he deliberately left it out of his piece, even though it is entirely relevant to the context.

2. I met Denise three months ago. We are not and have not been having an affair. Nor did we share a hotel room in Charlotte. Smith did not even ask me about this. Instead, Smith apparently deployed conference organizer Alex McFarland to call and raise the issue with me.

I clearly told McFarland that Denise and I stayed in separate rooms. McFarland knew he didn’t have what he wanted, because he subsequently called me back and asked me again. I realized McFarland may be fronting for Smith, so I told him I didn’t have any further comment. I’m not sure whether McFarland is lying or Smith is lying, but one of them made up the quotation attributed to me that we stayed in the same room but “nothing happened.” This is pure libel.

Look, no human is perfect, but Dinesh wasn’t some average Joe Shmoe off the streets

He is or now was a prominent Christian conservative in the US and was probably the most well-known intellectual leaders defending Christianity and objective morality.

You might want to do a YouTube search on him.

His record goes beyond just the Obama 2016 video.

D'Souza has no one to blame but himself. People need to stop making excuses or shifting the blame. That's what liberals do.

That said, I don't really have a personal problem with someone being engaged while separated from someone with whom the relationship - except on paper - has clearly ended. (Assuming, of course, he planned on tying the knot after getting officially divorced from wife #1).

What kind of nitwit gets engaged to one woman while still being married to another?

He has said he and his wife were separated for two years prior. Not to make excuses, and more details could come out, but right now I don't see the issue - "engaged" is not a legal status or even a religious status.

My mother married my father the day after her divorce became final. Obviously they were "engaged" while she was technically "married". A divorce doesn't go through overnight.

I read it. He confirms that he was engaged to another woman while “separated” from his wife. IOW, he and his wife are still married legally. He doesn’t mention that his wife ever filed for divorce. And he himself did not file for divorce until after his engagement to another woman.

He says his wife asked for the separation. The question is: Why? So far, he hasn’t claimed that his wife was betraying him. Could it be that he was being unfaithful to her then? Who knows. But, he should’ve known better.

Yeah, but he's a published, lecture-circuit, rising-star-in-the-Evangelical-firmament, Christian apologist (not just a "conservative"), and has staked his public life on the defense of biblical Christianity. He knows very well that it ain't OK by Christ.

Prophet Malachi: "God hates divorce."

Jesus Christ: "Any man who divorces his wife (except in the case of an unlawful union) and marries another, commits adultery."

That's if he marries the lovely Denise.

This is such a plaguing problem of powerful men. Public acclaim must boost the testosterone. Or nullify relevant patches of cerebral neocortex.

The college head previous to D’Sousa is one of the editors of World Mag. I read World mag and usually love it, but they do some shoddy reporting at times.

You know, I have been separated from The Estranged for umpity ump years. If I were to meet someone I would probably be at least infomally engaged before initiating divorce papers.

Men tend not to change situaions until there are other good reasons.

An honorable man doesn't make it his business to point out the moral shortcomings of others while banging some woman who was nine years old when said man married his current wife. It's also pretty clear he didn't just resign - he was no doubt told to, lest the college rightfully pressure him to return the 7 figure salary he collected while spending his time attending to his own personal business rather than the school's. Not only is he an adulterer, his love interest is one as well, and she's been married all of 10 months. The man disgusts me - just another charlatan fleecing the flock while completely ignoring the message that he touts.
