Apologist Dinesh D’Souza resigns as Christian college chief in face of questions about infidelity
I'm not one to gloat when believers don't live up to their ideals. Also, I think that monogamy can be difficult for anyone, notwithstanding their religious beliefs. However, what I have a difficult time stomaching is hypocrisy. Conservative writer and activist Dinesh D’Souza has frequently spoken out against gay marriage because it allegedly destroys traditional unions. Conservative Christians love to tell other people they have no right getting married because it goes against God’s Will. When they themselves break the rules, though, it’s just a “sin” that needs a bit of correcting.
D'Souza, who attracted wide attention with his recent anti-Obama film “2016: Obama’s America,” resigned Thursday as president of a Christian college in New York after questions were raised about his marriage.
D’Souza had led The King’s College, a small but prestigious evangelical school in Manhattan, for the past two years.
His departure appeared to be set in motion by an article on the website of the evangelical magazine World that accused D’Souza, who is married, of sharing a hotel room with a younger woman whom he allegedly referred to as his “fiancé” (who is also married to someone else) at a Christian conference.
