Slow down.

This is a moral issue, not a criminal issue.

On moral issues, I encourage people to go with their gut after reviewing all information available. There is NO obligation whatsoever to presume someone’s innocence once an allegation is made. In fact, it is stupid to do so in many instances (if a person is accused of child molestation, would you leave your kid with him because he is “innocent until proven guilty”?)

When the state wants to impose criminal penalties (always because of a moral breach), then I am glad the GOVERNMENT has to presume innocence until guilt is proven (but that is NOT the standard for private citizens).

Yes.

Unfortunately, however, it is not a moral issue for the media or the Dems.

Okay, it’s a moral issue. Once again, there’s NO PROOF. Perhaps you’re ready to take a CBS media employee from CHICAGO at her word, who has never brought this issue forth in the 15 years since she says it happened, but I’m not. Cain has repeatedly said these are lies. Why do you assume he’s the liar here? Additionally, her description of the events is very disturbing. Do you honestly think if this happened the way she says it happened, she would have told only 3 people that he harassed her and not speak of the sordid details?

Your example is beyond stupid. Comparing a child molestation charge to a 15 year old he said, she said is ridiculous.
