Are the women who accused Donald Trump of sexual assault telling the truth? What about Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers? What about Joe Biden’s accusers? Ultimately, only the people involved know the full details. But for us on the outside, those of us watching and reacting, one thing is required: consistency. As Scripture teaches, God hates unequal weights and measures.
This theme is found throughout the Bible, in passages like this, having to do with buying and selling: “You must not have in your bag different weights, a large and a small. You must not have in your house differing measures, a large and a small. But you must have a perfect and just weight—a perfect and just measure you must have, so that your days may be lengthened in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. For all who do such things and all who act unjustly are an abomination to the Lord your God” (Deut. 25:13-16).
Yet we do this all the time when it comes to allegations and accusations.
If the charges come against someone we like, we reject the charges as specious and unsupported. If the charges come against someone we don’t like, we embrace the charges as strong and believable. How can this be right?
At the moment, and for good reason, many of us on the right are pointing out the hypocrisy of the left in dealing with the Tara Reade accusations.
This is because the same media pundits and political leaders and celebrities who were pushing the #MeToo movement when Trump and Kavanaugh were being accused now look the other way when it is their man, Joe Biden, who is being accused.
What about “believe the women”? What about equal weights and measures? What about treating candidate Biden the same way candidate Trump was treated? Or the same way Judge Kavanaugh was treated?
But here’s the problem. Some of us are hypocrites too.
Some of us instantly dismissed all charges against Trump, despite the long list of accusers. Some of us didn’t even entertain the charges against Kavanaugh. But we want the accusations against Biden to be taken seriously. To repeat: how is that right?
