Clearly He’s Not “Holier Than Thou”
The Missoula Independent rarely fails to disappoint. This week my favorite supermissoulareporter Jesse Froehling relegated himself to cameo status for the Indy since he’s seeking what will, I’m sure, be a successful quest for a juris doctorate. I wish him the best of luck – but jeez! Now I have to find myself another favorite reporter…
In the running for my next favorite Indy reporter is Matthew Frank. Frank’s been with The Indy for a while – and before that I remember his great natural resource stuff at NewWest. I have been a fan….I’m sure he’ll pass the muster, but for now I must mourn the loss of Froehling.
The Indy’s Matthew Frank catches a good one today…former South Hills Evangelical Center (SHEC) pastor John Erbele was busted in a prostitution ring bust in St. Paul Minnesota on Tuesday evening, after having solicited and paid for services.
Google for it, and boy – you realize that Erbele’s “Ouch!” is one big “Oww-wee!!”
Honestly? This false morality that we see repeated over and over should be getting old, but hypocrisy abounds. This guy, who served as senior pastor for eight years, headed up an organization that started its ministry catering to skateboarders and basketball players – i.e., kids. SHEC is a ministry that caters to families, and often holds concerts and gatherings and all kinds of parties geared towards children. They’ve held a summer camp for kids for the last few years.
Then there’s the apologists – those that attempt to rectify the church’s (any church’s) position and the acts of a person who’ve they’ve propped up or held in esteem. Check the comments over there at Frank’s Indy post – one blames it on the liberal media for exposing a sinner.
We’re all sinners, you know – only when the liberal media exposes you, the real evil is the liberal media.
