KOBE BRYANT -- SEX, LIES, & LIBERAL TRAITS:
CONTINUOUSLY ERODING FAMILY VALUES
By Paul Walfield
Kobe Bryant was accused by a woman of sexual assault. The District Attorney decided that there was enough truth and possible evidence behind her statement to justify formal charges being brought against Mr. Bryant. Nevertheless, just because the state brings charges does not mean that the actual events occurred, as alleged, and Kobe Bryant must be found guilty by a jury of his peers before anyone has the right to claim he is guilty as charged.
Then there is the matter of his admitted infidelity. Kobe has been legally married for less than a year and he admitted to having committed adultery. He straight out said so, and most every news organization has repeated that fact.
Well, not exactly. What most every news organization has said is, at the present time, prior to his trial, Kobe is “only” guilty of adultery. How about that? Because adultery is no longer a state punishable offence, it is relegated to being prefaced by “only.”
Fidelity on the other hand, is relegated to the “really?” file. If anyone is found to have spent a lifetime, not only in love with the same person, but true to that person as well, the usual response nowadays is, “really”?
We all know that appellate courts in many parts of the nation have, as they did in Flori- da, usurped parental authority by allowing even 12 year olds to decide to have an abor- tion, “free” from parental interference. The courts no longer have, as their priority, the maintenance of the family or of traditional values.
Feminist organizations, which long ago ceased to have, as their goal, equality between the sexes, now strive for a general dismissal of marriage between a man and a woman as anything more than a relationship which stifles a woman’s independence, creativity and/ or self-determination. In other words, fidelity, and a caring loving relationship with ref- erence to marriage is, in effect, a relic of the past.
Marital fidelity has become a relic that is nothing more than an impediment to the con- trived goals of individuals who, incapable of following in the honest and egalitarian foot- steps of their predecessors, have instead chosen a destructive and exclusive path that serves no purpose other than to perpetuate the employment and power of a select few.
Kobe Bryant should not be singled out for his illicit behavior. There are many others who have transgressed at the expense of their relationship and, more importantly, at the ex- pense of an innocent’s heart.
What makes Kobe’s misbehavior standout is its usefulness to those who seek to create a sense of acceptance of that behavior and to those engaged in the obvious and concerted effort to diminish any outrage, not only by all concerned, but by the general population as well.
In effect, those that believe they gain from lessening the allure of stable marriages or, more to the point, those that believe the creating of tension and discord between men and women will keep them in positions of power and their organizations collecting dona- tions couldn't care less about the continuation of marriage or of the traditional family, so long as they can strike a cord with the discontent among us.
Kobe Bryant has been married for less than a year to, by anyone’s standards, a very attractive woman. Yet, he chose to betray his marriage vows, and his wife’s trust, with the understanding by some in the media and elsewhere that, other than having to shell out a fortune for lavish gifts for his aggrieved wife, he should be held without contempt or shame.
In other words, if the “other woman” had not alleged that she had been attacked, but rather simply claimed the affair existed, why should anyone care, including Kobe’s wife, over such a minor indiscretion? If the folks who, in the short term, believe they and their organizations gain because of a change in attitudes about fidelity, they will not have to continue to spew their vile rhetoric about the “evils” of marriage. They need only sit back and watch the institution of marriage fall apart from the inside.
Unfortunately, along with it, there may be untold consequences to virtually everything decent people hold dear. America itself, the way of life which honest folks believe is an admirable goal for all, may soon be changing. A not so small a number of Americans believe we are already headed in that direction, and the end of what was once “normal,” is inevitable.
Sadly, in the 21st century, they might be right.
