Another hypocrite is exposed

Honestly, and I mean this very sincerely, it gives me no pleasure at all (not even a very mild form of Schadenfreude) to report that yet another religious bigot has been found wanting in the good taste and decency department. Tommy Tester, 58, pastor of a Baptist church in Bristol, Virginia has been charged with indecent exposure and DUI. It seems the poor man also offered blow-jobs to the officers who were sent to investigate. I hope at least that the skirt he was wearing flattered his figure and that the police officers he propositioned were reasonably good-looking. No doubt this was an 'aberration', although perhaps the good Rev. Tester needs to re-assess where he is in the gender spectrum and face up to who he is - I hope he can recover from this scandal and that his Church and his parishioners can give him the time and the space to work out his 'demons', as the good Christian folk they undoubtedly [would wish to persuade the world that they] are.
