HYPOCRISY: When will it ever end!

I'm sorry Lord, forgive me but my first thought was not to pray for this jerk; but on second thought he is just the kind of guy who needs our prayers.
A minister and Christian radio station employee has been charged with indecent exposure as well as DUI and violation of the open container law, the Kingsport Times-News reported.

Tommy Tester, 58, of Bristol, Va., was arrested last week by Johnson City police after they say he urinated in front of children at a car wash.

Police also said Tester, who was wearing a skirt, offered to perform oral sex on officers who responded to the car wash.
Well, in that case, perhaps I should send him some "Tommy Girl" by Tommy Helfigir ...

... or do you think the "Boy" version would be best. Did you know that these products are called Tommy Testers? No I'm not joking! Guess it's a girl thing!

I wonder if there's an "It" blend?

Station WZAP, in Bristol, Virginia, offered this ...
We do not know all the details and facts concerning the arrest; but for the time being Tommy has been relieved of his responsibilities at the station until such facts surrounding the case are determined.
Station owner Al Morris added this ...
Morris said Monday in a phone interview that Tester, known to listeners as "Tommy Tester," is also pastor of Gospel Baptist Church on Reedy Creek Road. "So far, they (members of the congregation) have rallied behind Tommy," Morris said.

Morris, who was on vacation when he first heard about the allegations and read the details in the Johnson City Press, added, "It's the biggest shock of my life."

Having since read the two police reports over and over again, Morris spoke of his desire to wait until all the facts are revealed in court before condemning Tester, "I know what the police report has told me and I know what Tommy has told me--Tommy has denied all of it."
I don't know what the circumstances were; or what Tester did or did not do ... but I do know this, HE WAS DOING SOMETHING THAT GOT HIM HEADLINES, BAD HEADLINES!

That, in and of itself, is enough to say Tommy your butt is in a wringer and it deserves to be! [See here for another embarrassment to the Bride and the Bridegroom. HT: Chrishansen Home]

I am so sick and tired of these lousy headlines and the reproach they bring upon the church that I could vomit ... puke!

Others feel the same in a tongue-in-cheek sorta way ...
Thanks, TT, for providing more ammunition to the despisers of the Church. But why oh why did you have to be a Baptist? Couldn’t you have been an Episcopalian? Your behavior would then at least appear almost normal.
Evidently Tester has some recognition as a gospel musician ...
Fans of gospel music likely know the name Tommy Tester well.
Unfortunately ... correct that! Fortunately he'll be singing another song now - a song of repentance!
