"I'm Not a Christian Anymore"

While ironically wasting time on GTD blogs today, I found this very revealing introduction to an article on self-forgiveness. Heads up; there's some strong language in the full article.
I’m not a Christian anymore. Perhaps I got a raw deal when God was passing out churches—mine was shaken apart in my late teens by a pastor who got busted for sneaking a few hundred thousand out of the offering plate to buy Nazi war memorabilia, not to mention banging a few dozen women who came to him for marriage counseling—but I’ve made my peace with the Prince of it.Joel Johnson, 43 Folders

2. What does this say about importance of integrity in the life of a minister?
