My Friday Column: Convict in Clergy's Clothing

Another shady preacher in Miami gets slapped by a jury. The verdict in this case came this morning, less than 24-hours after I offered my opinion.

I'm not anti-religion. My father's a minister. What I'm against is clergy appearing to use the piety of formal religion to pursuade parishioners to support big lifestyles.

I'm against clergy who treat what they do as an occupation, rather than a calling, and therefore like most "employees" make their "jobs" about advancement and money.

Anyway, I'm rambling. Here is the column.

What I hate most is the fake piety when they live a freak lifestyle on the side and lavishly with everyone's money!
