if this was A Governing Body member caught in Thailand buying hookers, would Lloydy Boy respect Ant Mo?
Exactly, it's hypocritical because if you set yourself up an an activist exposing other people's bad behavior and lies, then you'd better not have any major skeletons in your own cupboard.
And these are not "I once got a parking ticket or stole a sweet from Woolworths pick-n-mix" kind of things, these are serious moral failings, possibly crimes. He's been a complete and utter shit to his wife and not once did he apologize or express any genuine regret in that video - it was all justification and anger for being caught.
On the one hand, he wants to claim that whoever exposed his behavior has committed the biggest crime since JFK was shot, and then on the other he tries to make out that there is nothing at all wrong with what he's been doing - but you can't have it both ways. He's completely amoral - I don't think he really has a clue of right or wrong, whatever he wants to do is "right" for him, and he'll use anything to excuse it. The "I was brought up a JW" is beyond lame as justification. All he's sorry for is that his wife found out and it's been exposed.
Throw in that he wants people to donate to fund all this behavior, claiming the donations are to enable his "activism" against the WTS, but he sees nothing wrong with then spending that money on hookers instead - it's just dishonest. If he didn't need the money for activism, why ask for it? He's taken that money under false pretences.
He even has the cheek to evoke the notion that people should donate because he's "a husband and a father and the work is a major distraction". Presumably, suggesting that he's missing time with them for his work, not going abroad to screw young women.
So yes, criticism of how he's treated his wife and kids is valid, because he's fund-raising off the back of them.
