Made to be Humble
The well-loved evangelist Billy Graham’s grandson Tullian Tchividjian (photo) has resigned from his pulpit at Coral Ridge Presbyterian, Fort Lauderdale, FL - A high-profile church made famous by its former pastor Dr. James Kennedy who helped establish the "Religious Right" (often accused of being neither - religious or right) in the 1990s and subsequently championed a national campaign condemnation of gay people - God's children too. Today, pastor Tullian Tchividjian admitted he and his wife both have had affairs in an official statement he sent to the Washington Post.
Of course, human sexuality is a complex and an across-the-board weakness as proven now by Tchividjian along with King David/Bathsheba fling, TV Evangelist Jimmy Swagart, President Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky affair and Foursquare Church founder, Aimee Semple McPherson multiple liaisons and millions more like them. It is one way that God keeps judgmental people in-check, humble and more loving and accepting of gays and others who are easy minority targets. It's unfortunate that a public fall from grace is what it takes to bring down a religious self-righteous attitude that condemns and judges others all the while hiding one's own moral failures and weaknesses.
