Rarely.

Hypocrisy is the state of falsely claiming to possess virtuous characteristics that one lacks. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.Hypocrisy is not simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches. Samuel J... ohnson made this point when he wrote about the misuse of the charge of "hypocrisy" in Rambler No. 14:Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others, those attempts which he neglects himself.Thus, an alcoholic's advocating temperance, for example, would not be considered an act of hypocrisy as long as the alcoholic made no pretense of sobriety   more

Woops! I don't know why it inserted that thing about hypocracy in answer #4. Please ignore it. There doesn't seem to be any way for me to edit or delete this poll.
