Cheating was his decision to repair what’s damaged and to feed himself where he’s starving.

A lot of times they will dictate to other people what morality needs to be. And that is a way they work out a lot of their own issues…
-Dr. Jeff Gardere
What I consider very interesting is that Governor Spitzer actually paraded himself around in his campaign saying that he would champion morality causes. Dr. Laura’s quote above is very disconcerting and I’m sure quite controversial. Dr. Gardere seems to pinpoint a very interesting concept — especially thinking back to the Ted Haggard scandal and the Jim McGreevey scandal.
Maybe humanity is just too broken to champion moral causes, as sad as that is? Maybe we should do better at challenging the loudest voices — is their volume a mechanism to cover up their own shameful secrets? I don’t want to be cynical–how can these scandals point toward a greater message of hope, wholeness and healing?
