When a pastor loses his (or her) faith, that's a real problem. Pastors may develop some marketable skills but apparently for some it's hard to market them, especially in a tough job market. I feel more than a little bit bad for these guys; they're kind of trapped in a job that makes them feel like hypocrites but have no real other way to provide for their families. I can't help but think this is nothing particularly new; I wonder how many people have been preached to by clergy (of any religion) who don't really believe what they're saying.
