While I believe Judge Kavanaugh is being attacked in error or for political reasons do Judge Kavanaugh’s detractors believe a possible unproven act by a seventeen year old whether drunk or sober should be punished for the rest of his life even though he has led an exemplary life over 35 years since the alleged incident? I don’t believe this is the American way.
It is almost impossible to overstate the damage done to America’s moral compass by taking the charges leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh seriously.
It undermines foundational moral principles of any decent society.
Those who claim the charges against Judge Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford are important and worth investigating, and that they ultimately, if believed, invalidate his candidacy for the U.S. Supreme Court are stating that:
a) What a middle-aged adult did in high school is all we need to know to evaluate an individual’s character — even when his entire adult life has been impeccable.
b) No matter how good and moral a life one has led for 10, 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years, it is nullified by a sin committed as teenager.
No decent — or rational — society has ever believed such nihilistic nonsense.
