This Sunday about 400 church leaders may resign after it was revealed they were on Ashley Madison.

You want to know why I get paid the mediocre bucks?  It’s because I read through articles in magazines like RELEVANT, which describes itself thusly:

Since 2002, RELEVANT has been the leading platform reaching Christian twenty- and thirtysomethings. Covering faith, culture and intentional living, the stories we tell are at the intersection of where a Christ-centered life is really lived.

I do this to extract nuggets of solid gold like this:

The Ashley Madison hack will have a serious effect on churches. According to Ed Stetzer, as many as 400 pastors, deacons, elders and church staff members may resign this Sunday after their names surfaced on the list of users revealed in the Ashley Madison hack.

In a post on his Christianity Today blog, The Exchange, Stetzer said the number is based on “conversations with leaders from several denominations in the U.S. and Canada,” adding, “To be honest, the number of pastors and church leaders on Ashley Madison is much lower than the number of those looking to have an affair.”

Bingo.

I wonder how many of those pastors made a big deal about how faithful, monogamous gay couples are ruining the sanctity of marriage.  I guess this is the proof: just look at how all this gay marriage is forcing these pastors to be hypocrites who lie to the spouse.  If only those gay people would find Jesus none of this would ever happen.
