    Back at the turn of the '80s, you could inuit that that Moral Majority wasn't so moral.

    Although, it was sometimes hard to explain until the later '80s when some of the TV preachers started to get busted.

      psychology has been around since the late 50s.

      I first bumped into it as a first year college student in my Psych 101 survey in 1978. Have been fascinated by it ever since.

      Hypocrisy is probably the world's second oldest profession so, yeah, it's nothing new.
