Tiger takes a mulligan....or ten?

   Get ready for another tearful confession of celebrity sex addiction, folks. Tiger's tail is caught in a vice, his approval rating is plummeting, and he needs an escape clause ASAP!
   With the bimbo count at 10 (according to Fox News; 8 per USA Today), you know a "Live at 5" press conference in which the big guy announces his impending admission to a sex addiction rehab center in Maui, can't be far off.
   Now, I like sex as much as the next gal, and I might have held my tongue if the count stopped at one.  (A love affair, I'd think. More complicated to judge.) But TEN women with more expected? And, a few of them are saying he refused to wear condoms!? Addiction? Or incomprehensible arrogance?
   It's also interesting to note that TW's official Web site is back to business as usual. His camp apparently saw fit to bury the apology statement.

Is this is a good time for me to step up and claim that I'm number #11? I hesitate, for fear of the publicity.

Wait a while and claim you're #13. You don't want to be part of the "dirty dozen."

The destruction of infidelity and divorce is just as great as the destruction brought on by the terrorists on 9-11.

Infidelity and divorce is shrugged off and minimized by society. The latest celebrity affair is sensationalized on magazine covers. Hollywood’s brightest and best flit from relationship to relationship, plugging their latest moralistic movie. Public servants are re-elected with hardly a raised eyebrow after leaving a family for “something better.”

Congressmen Mark Sanford left behind a faithful wife and four trusting sons to meet in secret with his Soul Mate. He betrayed not only his family but the people in his state. He dropped the bomb of infidelity on his family and his constituents, and we don’t know yet who will survive that inside attack. President Clinton, John Edwards, Jesse Jackson all had girlfriends on the side. And now there’s Tiger Woods -- the epitome of gentlemanly behavior in the most elite of sports. He had “everything.” A charmed life. A gorgeous wife. Caring, loving parents. Beautiful children. “The gift.” But his confession of infidelity has left his life and the life of those who trusted him in a shambles.

It’s not just the rich and famous. Everyday people are creating havoc by not honoring their promises or keeping their commitments. And this trend includes an increasing number of women either breaking marriage vows or being the infamous “other woman.”

When people in places of honor and great accomplishment make those poor choices, the resolve of the young and the vulnerable in society is undermined. When choices of their own have to be made, it’s somehow easier to give in if role models are continually giving in with no consequences.

Our culture doesn’t seem to like the cords of commitment any more. If a relationship gets difficult, we look somewhere else instead of to God and within ourselves. We seem to feel hemmed in and restricted by faithfulness. Loyalty is becoming a lost virtue.

Nine-11 wasn’t supposed to happen on that beautiful, ordinary September morning. Infidelity and divorce isn’t supposed to happen either. As long as we ignore the destruction that infidelity causes, the daily list of casualties will continue. As long as we step over the bodies left in the wake of compromising our values, especially in our personal lives, the more at risk we as a country will become. We will be a nation in decline whether there is ever another terrorist attack or not.

Sorry to get so serious, but I personally am getting tired of powerful men not being able to keep their pants zipped. I see the damage they do to their children, extended families, and friend not to mention their discarded wives.
