No matter what religion a person is, a person should be responsible.
Let's slow down.
Chuck's first responsibility is to remain together in ONE PIECE as Chuck. If he is not ready to speak openly about his deepest personal feelings to an entire congregation, then his responsibility right now is to NOT do so. None of us is obligated to OFFER information about our deepest personal selves to others at any time. Stepping into anything before one is psychologically ready usually results in pain, problems, and often, sheer disaster. Therefore it is the height of irresponsibility to rush into such a personal disclosure, especially in public.
Responsibility requires understanding what one maturely and reasonably can handle at any given time. It is not to be confused with continual soul-bearing, especially not in public.
