For me the issue here is primarily the man and his witness. Is he the kind of person who has made a profession of faith in Christ and has lived like it? Or he is one of the many who talk a good game, but in their personal lives they are full of iniquity and sin. If it is the former, then we as believers should give him the benefit of the doubt, until and unless he is found to be guilty. The person who said that we are quick to believe Weinstein's accusers, but not Moore's is missing a very important point. And that is that Hollywood is known for its indecency and lasciviousness; it is what it makes its money doing. Thus, it is no great leap to believe an individual who comes forward accusing one of its "pillars" of misbehavior. When it comes to Moore, however, we are dealing with a person who is, so far as we know, a believer and who has stood up for that belief in the past. It may be that he is guilty and has pulled the wool over our collective eyes for all these years. But until that is shown, then I believe we should hold judgment and see what the resolution to the situation is. I find it ironic that many who are constantly preaching "judge not," are the very ones who are so quick to judge now that they smell blood in the water.
