Bill Cosby took sex. Mel Gibson took booze. Catholic priests abused kids and bishops hid it. Mark Twain used the N-word. And our country’s forefathers had slaves.
All are now judged as evil by some, who wish them and their works to be banished from further offending their sinless, pure sensibilities. But a great majority of Americans still believe there was only One truly sinless Man, and to us He said: “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” How soon we forget.
Sin is not a darkness we should be shunning or fearing. It is a cloud in front of the sun present in of each of our lives. If all we see are sins of others we will miss a lot of their sun --- and the world needs more light. All of the men cited are a great blessing to the country and our culture, even if they sin.
God came to save us from sins; who are we to say He can’t, or that He needs our blessing --- or our help?
