In November, Stephen responded to the watershed of sexual abuse allegations coming to light. Today – 10 weeks after that episode originally aired – the “Weinstein effect” continues its spread. As the sexual abuse epidemic unfolds, it’s more important now than ever before to understand what’s happening in our culture. This week on the Stephen Mansfield Podcast, we’re reposting Stephen’s original episode addressing this issue.
First and foremost, Stephen firmly believes sexual abuse of any kind is both sin and criminal. Yet he’s also concerned about how some of these cases are developing – precisely because he is so opposed to any kind of sexual abuse. If light and frivolous allegations are used as a basis for destroying someone’s life, there will be backlash, which will ultimately result in legitimate claims being unheard as society becomes exhausted with unsubstantiated allegations. It’s beyond time for our society to have moral conversations. Stephen hopes this episode will help.
