The Mirror Between Washington and Hollywood

What is trending today? Sexual accusations have been in the news the past few months. It started with Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer who was accused of sexual abuse, and then most recently Senator Al Franken has had his past come back to haunt him. We hear more and more of these powerful or famous people getting accused of unwanted sexual advances and I am sure these who have been accused are just a few sacrificial lambs. The power of influence will always create privilege and that privilege will take advantage of people. Powerful men without character and without a moral compass are potential predators. That may be strong for some of you, but as a man, there is no question in my mind that men are by nature predators. Why do I say this?

 Men are much more visual predators than women and will fantasize about their sexual encounters with women. These kinds of stimulus can create the basis for sexual fantasy to turn into reality when the opportunity presents itself. The only way a man will manage fantasy, urges and motivations, is to have a moral basis for his temptations. Every man is tempted more often than a woman, and can and will act out his temptation. So if all of this is true, then men, who are rich, powerful, and famous, have an advantage to lure women into their sick world.

Let’s look at Bill Cosby whose escapades involved drugging women and molesting them. So what was it about Bill’s fantasy that drove him to take advantage of a drugged woman? As much as that disgusts most of you, there are many Bill Cosbys in Hollywood and Washington D.C. - we are only hearing about a few of them in the news today.

I would say that most rich men in either Hollywood or Washington have used their influence to solicit sexual favors of some kind. The only way a man of influence refrains himself from living in sexual gratification is if he has a moral compass. Do you think I am teasing you with facts?

 Eric Anderson from the Washington Post writes:

Cheating and affairs are more common among the rich and less common in conservative cultures. Studies have found that the more money and celebrity men have, the more likely they are to cheat:

It has been reported:

  • In over 1/3 of marriages, one or both partners admit to cheating.
  •  22% of men say that they've cheated on their significant other.
  • 14% of women admit to cheating on their significant other.
  • 36% of men and women admit to having an affair with a coworker.
  • 17% of men and women admit to having an affair with a sister-in-law or brother-in-law.
  • People who have cheated before are 350% more likely to cheat again.
  • Affairs are most likely to occur two years into a marriage.
  • 35% of men and women admit to cheating while on a business trip.
  • 9% of men admit they might have an affair to get back at a spouse.
  • 14% of women admit they might have an affair to get back at a spouse.
  • 10% of affairs begin online.
  • 40% of the time online affairs turn into real life affairs. 

Now add the power of influence and wealth to the mix and you have a sexual cocktail that is intoxicating and lethal.

So when you question my assumption that the rich and the powerful in either Washington or Hollywood are guilty of unspeakable immoral corruption, you have to be naïve.

The power of influence and money corrupts the moral character of most people, and it is only those who believe in God and know that He sees every action and desire will have a chance to resist the temptation fostered in these corrupt cities.

So as we see the sacrificial lambs of O’Reilly, Franken, Clinton, Ailes, Cosby, Weinstein, Weiner, Spacey, Toback, Affleck, Bush Sr., Helperin, just to name a few who are in media, entertainment, and politics, represent only those who have now been accused.  

I know you don’t need to have a lecture on this by me, but we know that these men who are accused of sexual indiscretions are only the tip of the iceberg.

It is just proof that our nation has moved far from away from its godly beginning.

Matthew 15:19 “For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.”

Keeping it honest and Truthful….K
