I’m not surprised that Jared was arrested for child pornography and pled guilty.

I’m not surprised that Josh Duggar had an Ashley Madison account. I’m also not surprised that his admission of that only came after it was exposed online, and that it included a plea for prayer for his wife and family.

I’m not surprised that a married Michigan state representative named Todd Courser had an affair with another married Michigan state representative named Cindy Gamrat. I’m not even surprised that he tried to divert attention from that affair by creating an email campaign suggesting he hired a male prostitute instead.

I’m definitely not surprised that neither Courser nor Gamrat have resigned from their positions in the Michigan state legislature.

I’ve been watching this kind of news break for years, and it’s stopped shocking me.

Tiger Woods having tons of mistresses? Not shocked.

Anthony Weiner sending photos of his junk out to women? Not shocked.

Ted Haggard getting caught in a drugs-and-prostitution scandal? Not shocked.

No, none of this stuff surprises me anymore. You know what does?

The person who does the right thing.

The husband and wife who are faithful to one another; who celebrate their 25th, 35th, 50th, 75th wedding anniversaries.

The leader who stays off TMZ and the Huffington Post because they live a happy, satisfied life.

The pastor who is actually exactly the person they say they are, who isn’t some back-door deviant or disgusting subreddit creeper.

That stuff is surprising.
