Scandal—Politics Vs Religion

August 27, 2015

A teacher was teaching her second grade class about the government, so for homework that one day, she told her students to ask their parents what the government is.

When a boy got home that day, he went up to his dad and asked what the government was.

His dad thought for a while and answered, ”Look at it this way: I’m the president, your mom is Congress, your maid is the work force, you are the people and your baby brother is the future.”

”I still don’t get it” responded the boy.

”Why don’t you sleep on it then? Maybe you’ll understand it better,” said the dad.

”Okay then…good night” said the boy went off to bed. In the middle of the night, the boy was awakened by his baby brother’s crying. He went to his baby brother’s crib and found that his baby brother had taken a crap in his diaper. So the boy went to his parent’s room to get help. When he got to his parent’s bedroom, he looked through the keyhole to check if his parents were asleep. Through the keyhole he saw his mom loudly snoring, but his dad wasn’t there. So he went to the maid’s room. When he looked through the maid’s room keyhole, he saw his dad having sex with his maid. The boy was surprised, but then he just realized something and thinks aloud, ”OH!! Now I understand the government! The President is screwing the work force, Congress is fast asleep, nobody cares about the people, and the future is full of s**t!”

A sex scandal is an action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage, involving allegations or information about possibly-immoral sexual activities being made public. Sex scandals are often associated with sexual affairs of film stars, politicians, famous athletes or others in the public eye, and become scandals largely because of the prominence of the person involved, perceptions of hypocrisy on their part, or the non-normative or non-consensual nature of their sexuality. A scandal may be based on reality, the product of false allegations, or a mixture of both.

Sex scandals involving politicians often become political scandals, particularly when there is an attempt at a cover-up, or suspicions of illegality. While some commentators see sex scandals as irrelevant to politics, particularly where “professional performance [does] not seem to be impaired”, views them as not just “great fun”, but a reminder “that we should think twice before we cede more power to these clowns.

Over the centuries, many sex scandals have involved incumbent United States federal elected politicians, as well as persons appointed with the consent of the U.S. Senate. Sometimes the officials have denied the accusations, or have apologized, or have lost their office in consequence of the scandal (e.g. by resigning or being defeated or deciding not to run again). There is some emphasis on sex scandals since the mid-1970s, because before then the media was less inclined to cover these matters. Additionally, outing people because of perceptions that their political positions are anti-gay has become increasingly common since 1989. More generally, any perceived inconsistency between personal conduct and policy positions makes a politician’s sex life more likely to become publicized. There are listed people, either the scandal, or the behavior which gave rise to it, occurred while they were occupying their high federal offices.

This is quite interesting and bit scary when any given community or society could be in such situation of life and it is possible to tell that what kind of look such given society could have when members of its institutions get corrupt and dwell on personal desire and interest than have community or society concern since there are such types of leaders in every community or society. Sex scandals cause chaos in community life since families are broken down and such breaking down of such given families cause perplexity and perilous psychological stress on their given children which do have its own consequences on the community or social life which they claim are building.

When such scandal become norm, the value making of such societies is distorted and they need to have an overhaul and they have to make moral revivalism in their values and thinking even if they consider sex given type of having sex as normal activity of life. Sex is necessary human activity, but it has its own fashion, and it should be done with means of establishing law and order, meaning, when people are married, they should not see other people outside their given marriage. Otherwise, there is no point of having their marriage since they are doing it outside it and they are committing double sin and crime, one is on their family and second is on their given political or religious responsibility which they shoulder.

When any given ordinary individual is found in having sex with women in one’s own way as far as  it is done on voluntarily basis, there is no such scandal since one is ordinary and not even married, unless one is committing rape or related; where as political and religious leaders are found in such condition and way of life, they put damage and harm to the entire society since leadership is not about one given person and related family, but it is about the well being of entire society and community. One wonders as such kinds of sex scandals, although Italian government, Catholic priests, Protestant preachers, and other few governments and religious institutions are mentioned on the Medias since they are caught, but as people go further with more close up and watch dog is done, it is possible to tell such messy situations that could exist in every palace and church and worship places besides the regular activity they undergo.

Rolling out Web Magazine published the following article, in which an excerpt is taken in here. Religious leaders have an obligation to teach and serve as great moral examples to their congregations and communities. But too often, some religious leaders have abused their position by participating in amoral acts without seeking help for their indiscretions. In turn, their secrets tend to destroy the lives of their victims and it causes their followers to also experience uncertainty and confusion. Rolling out has compiled a list of 15 religious leaders who were caught in a sex scandal. During the time of Pope John Paul, the Catholic Church organized conference on sex scandal, in which the pope has summoned U.S. cardinals and American church leaders to Rome for a special meeting to discuss the pedophilia crisis that has rocked the Church.

Most African political leaders are widely mentioned of sexual lust and sex scandals due to the polygamous cultural and social setting they have, this could be considered as norm. However whatever immoral and unacceptable behaviors is cannot be considered as legitimate and should not be treated as norm since it affects social dynamics and disturbs the balance and equilibrium of social dynamic and thinking.
