What if someone went to the media and said that your father molested them 40 years ago? Would you automatically believe the “survivor?” If there was no evidence, not a single person who could corroborate the accusation, would you still believe the accuser? If it was your son accused?
What then? If the accuser couldn’t remember any details, and was vague on everything, and came forward only when it appeared your dad was about to get a really important job, would you still believe the accuser?
If it was your son? If there was no evidence, and no one who said that yeah, I saw it, I remember it, she told me after it happened? Would you still believe the accuser?
This attitude scares the crap out of me. And if it doesn’t scare you, why not?
