Our brother Dinesh resigned from King's College earlier today after allegations that he shared a hotel room with a woman he allegedly referred to as his fiancee.
Can't have one of those if you have a wife.
When it comes to matters of the heart and eros, we can sure do some dumb things. This one is a whopper.
If you read the original story HERE, the sensation story doesn't strike me as unbiased good faith sources. Somebody offered to drive them to the hotel. Instead of pulling up to the door and letting them get out, the super sleuth parked the car and hung around the lobby watching them. Kind of creepy if you ask me and unless you are standing beside them as they check in and you hear the conversation, how would you know if there was one room or two? Then noseynellie showed up at the buttcrack of dawn to watch the elevators. Kind of creepy if you ask me.
Then the next thing you know, they call the newspapers and allege that as their grabbing their undergarments and running out of the hotel, Dinesh called a lawyer and sent him up to the courthouse to file for divorce.
Something smells, yet, it appears he does indeed have a fiancee. A 29-year-old fiancee.
A word to the wise.
If you're the keynote speaker at a Christian Conference (or even attending one) and you have a wife:
Do not bring, introduce nor enter your comfort suite with your fiancee on your arm. The thousand people attending the conference are going to be devoted to salvation and are not always as stupid as they look.
If you are Catholic and struggling - in every circumstance, seek a priest, a confessor, hang on to Sacramental Grace.
Dinesh has responded HERE.
He said he has been separated for two years, met his fiancee several months ago and has been working on the divorce. He said he didn't know getting engaged while still legally married was frowned upon in Christian circles. That's a tough one for me, but I do buy into most of his explanation. He says the people involved in this tabloid story have an ax to grind because they were cut loose from King's College.
I pray that he, his family, the woman and all those affected find their way to Christ's merciful arms where He heals and makes all things new again.
