What you find when you grow up in a family like mine is that there's what you do in public and there's what you do in private and the two don't have to align at all. We're Church of England types, and you could be moved to tears by some of their words in church...Then you go on a golf trip or whatever and there are more booze and whores than you can shake a stick at. Piety and charity is an act but it's an important one for the club to see that you're not one of those people, however defined.

Your family is neither unique nor opaque.

Both sides of my family have supported the Democrats for generations primarily because Republicans value hypocrisy.
