Dinesh D'Souza involved in affair, seeking divorceVery sad news, indeed. World magazine broke the news and it is spreading rapidly that Dinesh D'Souza - producer of 2016 - is having an affair and divorcing his wife. How could he disgrace himself at a time like this????
Religion | After a meteoric rise in the evangelical world, The King's College president Dinesh D'Souza now faces his board's likely questions about his relationship to a woman not his wife
About 2,000 people gathered on Sept. 28 at First Baptist North in Spartanburg, S.C., to hear high-profile Christians speak on defending the faith and applying a Christian worldview to their lives. Among the speakers: Eric Metaxas, Josh McDowell, and--keynote speaker for the evening--best-selling author, filmmaker, and Christian college president Dinesh D'Souza.
D'Souza's speech earned him a standing ovation and a long line at the book-signing table immediately afterward. Although D'Souza has been married for 20 years to his wife, Dixie, in South Carolina he was with a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II, and introduced her to at least three people as his fiancée.Read more at World.

Satan knows how to get to men. It is important to pray for our pastors and other Christian leaders for strength in their marriages.
What he did was wrong, wrong, wrong. But he had a huge target on his back for Satan and he needs our prayers.

It's my understanding that Dinesh D'Souza is a fallen-away Catholic. Obviously no Christian church sanctions infidelity, but he's already left the only one that is opposed to divorce and remarriage.

I struggle to understand what him being a "fallen away Catholic" has to do with his actions. When a man chooses to be unfaithful to his wife, it doesn't matter which denomination he claims to belong to or what church he walked away from; he has broken his marriage vows and sinned against God. That is the part that breaks my heart.
I doubt he was thinking about the timing when he made his choice, or the huge ripple affect that it might have. Because when a man commits adultery, he is ONLY thinking about himself.
Maybe instead of turning this into a debate about how one church handles divorce vs. another, we should pray for his family, knowing that their private pain is being made public. I also pray that seeing his indiscretion in the headlines brings this man to repentance. (Notice I'm not using his name, because I'm too angry with him.)
