The crisis over D’Souza’s situation is unexplainable at some level. His vociferous opposition to Obama brought his name into the vastly politicized American scene. His apologetics’ insights and his status as defender of the faith have granted him debates with Christopher Hitchens, and the respect of many in the Christian intellectual community.
So we must ask: How can a man so vastly familiar with the world view of Christianity be a part of such a naive storyline? Further, why would he be so public about his engagement while still married to his wife? Also, if he desired reconciliation why would he move so many miles away rather than taking a sabbatical from his labors?
I do not wish to fire the first shot of speculative bullets and guess the basis of his rationale. I will let the situation unfold to get a better, more accurate picture. At this stage we can only ask questions; questions we hope will be answered and dealt with on a professional level, but most importantly in the context of the ecclesia.
Meanwhile, we, in positions of leadership, need to be even more aware of how much our testimonies and reputation matter to our communities. May God make us wise in an age of foolishness.
