I can put forth the dictionary definition:
Hypocrisy is the act of persistently pretending to hold beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually hold. Hypocrisy is thus a kind of lie.
Or, we can examine the life of hypocrite like Father Thomas Euteneuer.
A priest has admitted to a sexual indiscretion with a woman under his spiritual care during an exorcism.
Father Thomas Euteneuer made the confession after a wave of online debate about his sudden departure from his post of president of an anti-abortion group.
He abruptly departed the Human Life International in August of last year, and had maintained a silence over his reasons for stepping down ever since.
Priest, exorcist, leader of an anti-abortion group, and rock star of the catholic type. His name is dirt now. He’s admitted to his indiscretion. Satan must have made him do her.
He said he took 'full responsibility' for his 'weakness and sinful conduct'.
The admission only fanned the flames of the online debate.
HLI defended its silence over the scandal by quoting catechism 2489: 'No one is bound to reveal the truth to someone who does not have the right to know it'.
And now, coming to a catholic church near you…
