As for his being trustworthy and/or truthful: I'd rather not associate someone's abstract beliefs with inherent strength of character or the lack of it. Anti-Semitism is an example of how wrong that supposition can go.

His credo might seem to you to be an excuse for his own unethical conduct elsewhere, but to assume it is truly such an excuse is to claim access to his unstated motives and intentions -- and that can't be verified.
Either he really believes in what he says he believes in, and acts accordingly to the limits of his ability and willingness, in which case we can assume he's dishonest and untrustworthy because he says he's dishonest and untrustworthy, or he doens't, in which his claim about what he believes is dishonest and untrustworthy.
