It’s always hard seeing public figures fall, especially pastors and preachers. It’s frustrating when a politician or business man appears to be hypocritical, because it shows us how jacked up the world is when a person can’t say what they believe to be true and then act on it. We tend to mask our real feelings by saying things like “Well, he/she’s a politician, what do you expect?” It’s much harder of a blow when this happens with a pastor or popular preacher because they are supposed to be the earthly example of how to live authentically and be Christ-like. It’s even a harder hit when the person isn’t a public figure, but is someone you know personally. In situations like this, feelings aren’t so easily masked.
