First, watch this 3.5 minute video.
then keep in mind that the only person that a hypocrite is lying about is himself. He agrees that the standard is higher than his actions. He just tries to bluff his way into the world believing that he is meeting the standard.
Finally, Sanford’s lovely wife Jenny has issued a perfect statement. I am so glad that she didn’t stand next to him in the video above.
Her whole statement is great, but here are two bits:
I believe enduring love is primarily a commitment and an act of will, and for a marriage to be successful, that commitment must be reciprocal. I believe Mark has earned a chance to resurrect our marriage.
I remain willing to forgive Mark completely for his indiscretions and to welcome him back, in time, if he continues to work toward reconciliation with a true spirit of humility and repentance.
Pray for this family during this awful yet self inflicted time.
