bleeding deacon
 n.— «Our town is going nuts with gambling. I don’t have a conversation with my friends when we’re not talking about off-track betting, the Meadows, the Lotto or poker machines. I am not a Bible-thumper or bleeding deacon, but I’m really ticked off!» —“Gambling’s Not the Answer” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Feb. 20, 1997. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
