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 shall not have in your pouch alternate weights, larger and smaller. You shall not have in your house alternate measures, a larger and a smaller. You must have completely honest weights and completely honest measures, if you are to endure long on the soil that the Lord your God is giving you. For everyone who does those things, everyone who deals dishonestly, is abhorrent to the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 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?
Some would reply, “But there’s a difference. The accusers of Trump and Kavanaugh had no credibility. Biden’s accusers are much more credible.”
