Hes not a true Christian, just because you call yourself that, doesnt mean you are.
Matthew 7:13 “Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; 14 whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it.15 “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? 17 Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. 19 Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men.21 “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’

Not that much different than some Catholic priests molesting young boys. Clearly, a double standard. Sex remains very problematic, for most people. Even otherwise, "good" Christians.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

It is hypocritical, all right.

All humans are sinners, but a man in that profession should at least refrain from public sin that brings scandal on himself and his church.

The elders of the jehovah's witnesses do it all the time.
Their title permits them to do anything, including raping kids.

The church is content with hypocrisy. After all, the priests have been buggering little boys for centuries.

Hypocrit just like the religious leaders in the days of Christ. The Bible says that people will have a form.if godly devotion but proving false to its powers.

Christians think the rules are for other people. They don't bother obeying the rules themselves.

He shouldn't be having premarital sex.
Maybe he should be removed as a deacon.

Why do you think he became a preacher?
It sure wasn't to "save" you.
