Paul Stanley is the Tennessee state senator who resigned his office a couple of days ago when it was revealed that he was having an affair with a 22-year-old intern.
Stanley acknowledged in an interview with WREC radio
host Ben Ferguson that he had an affair. He also defended statements he
had made condemning sex outside of marriage and a legislative record
that included backing a ban on adoptions by unmarried couples.
I stood for and advocated I still believe to be true,” Stanley said.
“Just because I fell short of God’s standard … doesn’t mean that
God’s standard is reduced.”
But it does mean that he’s a hypocrite. Does he imagine that, having paid homage to virtue, he should get credit for it?
