Vowing to stay after breaking sacred vow

natural marriageThe story of a Tennessee mayor's admitted affair, with lavish exotic trips and questionable pay to a bodyguard, is not a soap opera but a sad reflection of the current times. 

Nashville Mayor Megan Berry had to do a public walk of shame this week, acknowledging an affair with a Nashville police officer who served as a bodyguard. He has since stepped down. 

"I had a consensual relationship with a member of my security detail and I am deeply sorry for that," she said at a press conference. "I know that God will forgive me but that Nashville doesn't have to."

The mayor went on to state she will not step down.

"We live in a time," says Christian apologist Alex McFarland, "when morality has become so blurred, if not forgotten, it's really hard to have any sort of righteous indignation anymore by so much of the culture."

He wants to know where the "Me Too" movement is now that the gender roles are reversed.

"If a male has an affair, there's generally the insinuation of coercion and abuse of power and male privilege," McFarland points out. "When a female does, there's generally from the Left silence, if not a tacit approval, that it's the action of a modern liberated woman."

The situation is especially troubling, says McFarland, because it's a community leader involved.

"The most sacred vow a human will make, other than their relationship with God, is their relationship with their spouse," he says. "And if an elected official will betray their marriage vow then we know, with no conviction or compunction, would think twice about betraying any other vow."
