Oh, crap.

"FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A prominent Florida megachurch says a grandson of the Rev. Billy Graham has stepped down as its pastor after a "moral failure."

Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church said Monday that Tullian Tchividjian resigned last week for actions that "disqualify him from continuing to serve as senior pastor." The Fort Lauderdale church offered no further details.

Tchividjian did not comment on the matter on his webpage and did not respond to a call seeking comment. In a statement to The Washington Post, he acknowledged having an affair."

I recall years ago a religious figure said (paraphrased), "When a man starts to approach God Satan will attack him, usually be sending a woman." I never took this to be an insult to women, but rather more a warning to men. We tend to be rather more weak than women when it comes to sex, lust actually, and have to always be on guard in that realm of life. How many preachers and priests have we seen of late laid low by concupiscence?
