It’s got to be a special burden living up to the image of Billy Graham.

Tullian Tchividjian, a grandson of Billy Graham, has resigned from his post as a senior pastor at Coral Ridge Presbyterian, a mega-church in south Florida, after both he and his wife had admitted to having extra-marital affairs.

After learning several months ago that his wife was having an affair, Tchividjian requested a sabbatical from the church to “focus exclusively on my marriage and family”.

“As her affair continued, we separated. Sadly and embarrassingly, I subsequently sought comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself. Last week I was approached by our church leaders and they asked me about my own affair,” he told the Washington Post in a statement.

Tchividjian had been considered a rising star in evangelical churches. In the last several years, three other leaders of Florida mega-churches have resigned after admitting affairs.

    “I subsequently sought comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself”.
    or as the unwashed heathens call it.
    “f*cking around on your spouse”

    Sounds as if Franklin Graham and Anne Graham Lotz had better have a little family talk instead of spending so much time with Fox News, hmm?

    Yeah, but he just had a face-to-face chat with Jesus and was absolved of all of his sins.
