The Strange Case of Dinesh D'Souza

Successful author, speaking, and film-maker, Dinesh D'Souza recently resigned as President of a Christian College two days after he spoke at a Christian worldview conference, accompanied by a woman he introduced as his fiancee. The problem was that DD was not yet divorced from his wife of twenty years. A report in World Magazine claimed he spent the night with the woman in the hotel of the conference.

While much could be said about this, one point suffices. DD says in an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, that his career has never been better. Apparently, divorcing your wife of twenty years and introducing another woman as your fiance before the divorce is final does not detract too much from one's success.

Paul said to Timothy, "Guard your life and doctrine carefully." In God's eyes, worldly success means little if one's moral life is in decay, and if repentance has yet to emerge. Let that be a lesson to us all.

D'Souza's disgraceful behavior is exactly why gay "marriage" proponents are winning. When a Catholic-turned-Evangelical a) cohabitates with a woman who's not his wife and b) feigns ignorance as to the impropriety of such conduct, he invites scorn and cynical comments on Christianity's belief in the sanctity of marriage. Of course, the redefinition of marriage has not occurred because of homosexual infiltration. The redefinition of marriage began long ago, when divorce -- not to mention remarriage -- became acceptable.

D'Souza's recent "success" with his silly movie will, unfortunately, overshadow his colossal failure as a man and husband who failed to keep the public promise he made before God and his family.

I would love to hear D'Souza's argument for why gay "marriage" is wrong.
