I don't know whether to laugh or cry. It's definitely funny from the eyes of the reader and on-looker, but also sad as all too often, this type of thing is really happening. It reminds me of one of the arguments my husband and I have had before. He tells the kids "Do what I say, not what I do." I just want to scream and slap some sense into him, but then that wouldn't be a good example either.

The only bit of red ink I have is I stumbled over the opening line and had to reread it a few times.

However, once past that, I devoured every bit of your story. I enjoyed your take on the topic and you do a great job of telling the true message without coming off as preachy or sanctimonious. That's not an easy thing to do, considering your MC. It takes a great deal of talent to pull that off and you managed it quite nicely.
Sadly, all too true! Loved the name- Minister TUBS!

Oh I loved this entry. I felt I knew where it was heading and I'm glad I was correct. That big pudding of a hypocrite got what was coming to him and you brought it all together so well. Great job!

You can't see me, but I'm standing and applauding. This was brilliant, and true to life on so many levels. And I loved the pun of "Mr. Tubbs."

Great entry and admonition to look at the log in our own eye or junk in our own trunk before we hypocritically point our finger at others.
