Dinesh D'Souza Resigns as Head of Christian College Amid Controversy http://www.christianpost.com/news/dinesh-dsouza-resigns-as-head-of-christian-college-amid-controversy-83538/cpf ^

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.
A leftist would have doubled down.
I had no idea that Randy Hopper (heh) was a "leftist". Do tell me more.
Yep! Maybe now he can concentrate on digging up more dirt on Obama..
He did, that was the problem.
“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 sleazy.
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.12 posted on Thursday, October 18, 2012 1:43:30 PM by radpolis (Liberals: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy)..
What kind of nitwit gets engaged to one woman while still being married to another?
This is what is known as "begging the question"
He’s just asking for his wife’s lawyers to take him to the cleaners (I’d say he was also asking to get fired, but I guess that’s a moot point).
Now a good man is getting borked. By our side.
She looks like it’s worth it, in the short run at least.
To: hosepipeAn 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.
It sure wasn’t smart to wait until after he made millions off of 2016 to get the divorce.
Criticized the Messiah so he’ll now be joePlumberized —no prob I’ll simply like him more...
Prez is STILL a homo, ya know....
To: HokieMomSomeone early in this thread stated that Christian leaders do more harm by getting caught in this kind of "affair" than all their enemies combined.
I'd paraphrase that to Many Christian hardliners do more harm by showing their unchristian selves when another Christian is accused.
That would fit alongside Many Christian hardliners do more harm by throwing rocks at allies they don't consider to be suitably chaste or capable of reciting psalms.
Then there is Those same hardliners are all too often practicing other than they preach.
Separated for two years at wife's determination.
Meets a very attractive alternative after 20 or so months separation and shortly thereafter initiates divorce proceedings.
Denies the unsavory claims of a story published in a tabloid run by the guy he replaced at the college.
Said article published just as his anti-Obama film goes to readily available DVD.
Any qualms about that description?
Absolutely willing to swear that you've never (that's not at any time in your life) screwed up or stood at the edge of orthodoxy?
Get a grip folks, this guy is more valuable to YOUR cause and to MY causes than anyone here other than Jim Robinson (and Sheriff Joe if he's a lurker, and for the time being at least, Mitt Romney, who you probably believe to be some kind of apostate).
Just get a grip!..
Has writing career based on moralizing.
Makes living as president of Christian college.
Commits adultery with woman 20 his junior.
Any qualms about that description?
Romney mocked for comment about jet windows

During a Saturday fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., which took in $6 million, Mitt Romney expressed his concerns over Ann Romney’s emergency landing on Friday. The candidate cast doubt on the mechanical design of airplane windows, in a general sense.
“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous....” he said...To: Uncle Slayton
Well, if you roll down the windows at 20,000 feet, that’s certainly not going to let in fresh air and oxygen.5 posted on Monday, September 24, 2012 9:04:37 PM by FoxInSocks ("Hope is not a course of action." -- M. O'Neal, USMC)....
True enough but...Romney doesn’t know why the windows on jet aircraft do not open? That’s just plain old stupidity. Obama and the media aside, that’s stupid.
To: Uncle Slayton
I bet the windows on his spaceship to KOLOB open just fine.
George W. Bush will give a speech on investing in the Cayman Islands right before the election

Former president George W. Bush isn’t exactly doing Mitt Romney any favors on the messaging front. As the current face of the Republican party, Mitt’s single biggest challenge has been distancing himself from his image as a business tycoon who got rich by outsourcing American jobs and then keeping big chunks of his fortune in Swiss bank accounts and invested in the Cayman Islands.
On election week, George W. will rub the sketchy Cayman Islands playboy image right in Mitt’s face.
BuzzFeed points out that W. will give the keynote address to the Cayman Islands Alternative Investment Summit, which goes down on Grand Cayman Island November 1-2, less than a week before the presidential election. The other keynote speaker will be the UK’s most famous billionaire playboy, Virgin’s Richard Branson, who owns his very own island not so far from Grand Cayman.
The Summit’s site says the event “will bring together the world’s leading institutional investors, fund managers, academics, economists and regulators in the Cayman Islands—the world’s leading domicile for investment funds—to discuss and debate the fundamentals of a vibrant future for the alternative investments industry.”
To most Americans, this is a pretty simple equation: “Cayman Islands” + “alternative investments” = “sketchy.”
George W’s Cayman keynote is just the latest in a long string of reminders about Romney’s ultra-rich status and possibly sketchy behavior— and he’s not getting a lot of help from the people around him.
Just last week former GOP candidate Tim Pawlenty left Rommey’s campaign in a high-profile departure to become a lobbyist for the banking industry, and promptly said that banks should just be allowed to regulate themselves. Last week Romney released his 2011 tax returns which showed him paying a 14% tax rate, and if the hackers who claim to have stolen his earlier records weren’t bluffing and haven’t been paid a ransom, they may release even more of Romney’s returns tomorrow.Accidental or not, somehow the messaging around Mitt’s millions seem to be the most consistent the GOP is able to construct around Romney.
The worst president I ever voted for seems to be doing his best here to help the reelection of the worst president I didn’t vote for...
To: Colonel Kangaroo; jpsbBush again?
Bush flooded the country with millions of illegals, Muslims, and foreigners, made U.S. citizenship all but pointless, left the borders to become a violent war zone, bailed out the banks and then he gives speeches investing in the Cayman Islands.

Romney should use it as a talking point: Under the current management in our country, the Caymans are a better place to put your money.
To: SamuraiScotthe Caymans are a better place to put your money.
Why not...Under Bush hundreds of thousands of our jobs and businesses went to Communist China, while he flooded our country with Muslims and low wage illegals. Boy, that sure worked out well.
I'd like to send Bush to the Caymans, along with his tens of millions. Put him on a raft.8 posted on Friday, September 28, 2012 10:51:49 AM by dragnet2 (Diversion and evasion are tools of deceit)..
To: Colonel Kangaroo
Another in a long line of brilliant political statements and moves by the Bushies. Their dynasty has done more to undermine the house that Reagan built than Reid and Pelosi together..
To: jpsbWhen I get disgusted by something from Romney and tempted to vote for somebody like Goode, I think of the Democrats' embrace of the Sodom and Gomorrah agenda. In the end, I think that and not economics or national defense will cast my vote for Romney.
Of course, Ryan just endorsed the new social engineering in the military. They're making it hard on us.
Paul Ryan Says He's Now Okay With Gays in the Military

(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee, told a West Palm Beach, Fla., television station over the weekend that he is now okay with homosexuals in the military and does not want to reverse the repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy.
“I talked to a lot of good friends of mine who are combat leaders in the theater, and they just didn’t think the timing of this was right to do this when our troops were in the middle of harm’s way in combat,” Ryan told WPTV Saturday, when asked about the one-year anniversary of the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.\“I talked to a lot of good friends of mine who are combat leaders in the theater, and they just didn’t think the timing of this was right to do this when our troops were in the middle of harm’s way in combat,” Ryan told WPTV Saturday, when asked about the one-year anniversary of the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
“Now that it’s done, we should not reverse it. I think that would be a step in the wrong direction because people have already disclosed themselves.”“I think this issue is past us,” he added. “It’s done. And I think we need to move on.”************************
Somebody claiming to be Paul Ryan appeared on FOX- Cavuto program. It had to be an impostor because it acted like a ventriloquist dummy with nothing to say but a very tightly scripted Romney talking point list. It was awful.
What have the Romney people done with the real Paul Ryan? Where are they keeping him? Tied up in a basement somewhere?
To: ViennaconOut of interest, how was DADT repealed? congressional vote or executive order from the king?
Does it matter? The point is, Ryan's all for it now.
His mind and morals are slipping away rapidly ~ next, “Ryan thinks he’s the Pope and orders crates of condoms for Vatican use” ~..
Ryan is getting the order of things mixed up, republicans cave in AFTER they get elected not BEFORE.

How lovely. Whenever it seems this crappy election season couldn’t get any more dispiriting, it always does. Really getting to be fewer and fewer reasons to even bother with going out and casting a damned ballot.
To: BretoSo many conservatives thought Ryan would make a difference...or at least make voting for Romney palatable. Ryan, however, is merely window dressing. Romney and the liberal republican party have their own agenda. Ryan's thoughts and ideas aren't worth a da** to the party.
I was dumb enough to think that he was “more” Catholic than the other CINOs. Fooled once again. What is that saying about half-measures availing us nothing?..To: Tau FoodI no longer have any appetite for criticizing his candidacy. At this point, I really just feel sorry for the Romney-Ryan ticket and for each of them personally. Like Ann has said, things can’t be easy or fun for them.
I have NO sympathy for Romney and Ryan. None. They're completely ignoring the true wind at their backs.
This is pandering to some mythical 'middle-of-the-road' voter, who they think will carry them over the top. The price of pandering to that segment of the population, is betraying the trust of the majority of those who will vote for them.
And once they're in office, who will they answer to? We, the majority? I hardly think so.
Stick a fork in Romney/Ryan. They are nothing but the white republican version of Obama/Biden. Ryan should be ashamed of himself. He voted against repealing DADT and he has said in the past he was against homosexuals openly serving. He now touts the RINO line of his boss Romney...........and to hell with what the Catholic Church teaches on sodomy. For Ryan, it is not “time to move on”. He needs to grow a damn pair and start acting like man, and a man that is supposed to be a conservative. I have thought there was no way the republicans could lose this thing. I was wrong. Why vote for Obama/Biden light? To hell with this election. I’m moving to Costa Rica.
I’m reading the biography of Craig Kilbourne, the New York Times food writer. He was a combat Navy veteran of two wars and gay as a May Pole. And not the only gay man to serve in the Navy according to the book.
Somebody slap a sock in this idiots mouth.
Are he and Romney both trying to lose?..
To: NKP_VetStick a fork in Romney/Ryan. They are nothing but the white republican version of Obama/Biden.
I had really hoped that Ryan would somehow pull Romney a bit right, or that he'd be a counter weight to Romney's liberal progressivism, but no. He's been consumed by the GOP-e Borg.
This is just unbelievable! I make up my mind to vote for these two
and now they start this stuff. I won’t vote early after all, may not vote at all.
Same stuff from both parties so who cares? Ryan has to be stupid trying for some gay votes and losing lots of conversative Christian votes.
Amazing how they bend over and grab their ankles
for less than 1% of the population, even when they have 0% chance of getting a single vote for it.
