at least politics moves faster than sports

One nice aspect of both politics and religion is that retribution is swift. Rev. Coy Privette, the sick bastard that inspired me to rebrand this blog, has already resigned all his posts in various Christian organizations. Of course everybody tries to put as nice a face on it as possible. Rev. Privette's statement to the NC Christian Action League is typical:

Because of the nature of the allegations, I believe it is in the best interest for me to resign so that the charges will not distract from the important work of the Christian Action League.

Uh, dude, I hate to break it to you, but the important work of the Christian Action League is hypocrisy. It's too late, you already got our full attention.

To their credit, the group has updated their front page frequently over the weekend to address the issue head on, including links to mainstream news articles. Usually when something like this happens, websites stop updating or disappear entirely. As much as I disagree with their goals, this is refreshingly honorable behavior.
