Scandal, scandal, scandal

Is anyone questioning the scandals that seem to crawl out of the woodwork when something good is happening? 

I'm not a mind reader.  I don't know if someone I've never met is telling the truth or not.  I can't put my arm around a total stranger and vouch for his/her integrity.  But it does seem that either a truly good person doesn't exist anymore or some people are willing to perjure themselves for the sake of ten minutes of fame. The real problem with the justice system and the media is that once a person is accused, the accuser can run away and hide.  He/she isn't prosecuted.  The life of the accused is ruin and there's no way to get it back.

I don't know Herman Cain.  I've read his bio and I've listened to him speak several times, but I can't tell you for sure that he isn't the kind of man that would sexually harass a woman. does seem suspicious that no one says a thing about him until....he rises in the polls and looks like he might be a shoe in.  Then all of a sudden four women are on the bandwagon to demand that he's a bad guy.  It seems like socialists, democrats, liberals and Mr. Obama's team are so desperate that I wouldn't put it pass someone in that army of individuals to do something dastardly.

If you factor in a little "discernment", it is possible to say...This person or that person just doesn't seem to be the kind of person to do that.  But... there again, who really knows.

For what it's worth, it doesn't seem to me that Herman Cain looks or acts like the kind of person that would demean any woman.  Something here doesn't ring true.  Besides, have you seen his bio???  It doesn't look to me like he would have time to harass anyone. 

I guess we will have to see how this all plays out, but I'm a little sad.  I don't think the media is trustworthy and I think most reporters would bury a candidate they didn't like for the price of dinner at Denny's.  I don't think they would bat an eye at ruining any one's life.  So to put this matter into their hands is like asking a crocodile to babysit a rabbit.  He wouldn't care about lost revenue, he'd just be glad dinner was served.

I guess the only real option here is to pray.  Pray for Herman Cain, pray for more honorable reporters and pray that God will have mercy on America.

God loves you,
