If you wish to be a person of authority, you have to be trustworthy and you have to be responsible. If you have neither of these things and you have authority that doesn't make you a powerful person, that just makes you a dangerous beast.....

Expect to be treated accordingly.......

The no-eating-with-another-woman rule was made popular by evangelical pastor Billy Graham in 1948, as part of the “Modesto Manifesto.” According to the Christian History Institute:

The most famous provision of the manifesto called for each man on the Graham team never to be alone with a woman other than his wife. Graham, from that day forward, pledged not to eat, travel, or meet with a woman other than Ruth unless other people were present. This pledge guaranteed Graham’s sexual probity and enabled him to dodge accusations that have waylaid evangelists before and since.

The provision, which came to be known as The Billy Graham Rule, allowed Graham to use his dashing looks to his advantage without cultivating an over-sexualized persona that other evangelicals might not have taken kindly to. (There are some Muslims who adhere to a similar only-dine-with-wives-and-relatives guideline, though one can assume such a disclosure would not elicit such a strong defense from the right.)

This history makes it all-the-more clear that this do-not-dine-with-women rule is predicated on the idea that the company of women is always first and foremost about sex.
Something might happen or maybe not. Something did happen or maybe it didn't? Who is to say?

A Republican candidate for Mississippi governor has refused to be interviewed by a female reporter unless she brings a male colleague with her.

Larrison Campbell, 40, said she had asked to shadow Robert Foster on a 15-hour "ride-a-long" on his campaign, but was denied because of her sex.

Mr Foster said he was acting out of precaution and he did not want to raise any suspicions about his marriage.

"This is my truck, and in my truck we go by my rules," he said on CNN.

During the CNN interview with Ms Campbell and Mr Foster on Thursday, the 36-year-old gubernatorial candidate cited his religion and faith, arguing he had made a vow to his wife to not be alone with someone of the opposite sex.

He cited the late Christian evangelist Billy Graham, who had said he would not spend time alone with any woman who was not his wife, as well as Vice-President Mike Pence, who has said he will not eat alone with a woman other than his wife.
Hard to believe that they could be so preoccupied with public image. It speaks to me of widespread sexual immaturity in those parts.

Feminists like Gloria Allred and Michael Avenatti? Seems more like they would mostly worried about going broke.

Take sex away and 90% of the women are as interesting as a grain of sand in the desert... :twisted:

Women are sexual beings, but they also want to be persons of consequense. Now, if you limit your options between whore and tyrant..... you know what most men and many women will choose....'>.........
