look up any word, like donkey punch:
1. An avowed atheist who (secretly) turns to prayer during times of serious illness, extreme danger or personal crisis.

2. The theological equivalent of a strict vegetarian who will eat a steak sandwich (on the sly) when facing extreme hunger.

3. A way of "covering all your bases" during an emergency.
