The Allegation Circus - Addressing the Culture of Accusation

February 4th, 2018

ACCUSATIONS! ALLEGATIONS! INNUENDO! Satanic tools used to bring down political opponents, partners in poisoned relationships, tearing down co-workers to get ahead - we are surfing a TIDE of allegations. True, some are based on facts. Some are based on rumor, hearsay, or outright lies. Did you think about this recently? Where are the are Judge Roy Moore's accusers now that the Judge lost his Senate race? Or President Trump's accusers now that he won the presidency? How do we handle a Sen. Franken's accuser who has photographic evidence vs. Judge Moore's accusers who presented none and one whose "evidence" was proven false. Once the damage is done, what can one do? We all face accusations from time to time - some are inconsequential, some can be devastating! How should we deal with this circus of allegations whether we're a spectator or the main event in the ring? Take a listen to this hard-hitting episode as the Truth Barista and Amazing Larry unpack these questions!

"Aw, it's just a little thing!" "Hey, it's a big company...nobody will miss it!" "Yeah, I'm taking it because they don't pay me enough!" Stealing. It's as easy as breathing and just as common.
