Tonight on "It's Real Talk Radio" we'll be discussing people who lie about being victims of physical and sexual abuse. Thousands of people in America alone go to jail every year over these false allegations which damages families, sabotages jobs and ultimately ruins lives. When you accuse someone of abuse, you are painting them out to be a monster, low life, scum of the earth. So the question we're asking everyone is "Do you think people who falsify these allegations deserve to be charged and face possible jail time if it is proven that they are lying under oath?" Well tonight we'll be sharing our thoughts and we invite you to join us on this sensitive yet controversial topic. Call in # 347-838-9540. As always, we won't be holding any punches. It Just Got Real!
I am here for you
Thursday is dedicated to survivors to call in and let us all know how they are helping other fellow survivors. Survivors, at any stage of healing can be a tremendous help to fellow survivors. It does not have to be on a grand scale. You can call into a blogtalk radio show and just having your name present can let survivors know that they are not alone. You can visit a non-profit that deals with survivors of child sexual abuse and volunteer at an event or visit their web page. Visiting web pages gives them a count on how many visits and that helps with applying for grants. Also, leave a testimony. You may believe that your story is not that interesting, but it is to someone who has not found the courage to break their silence and sees that there is someone who has the same story as they do. Buy a t-shirt or a book. It is great healing when you help others.
The NFL appears to have a huge problem with players committing acts of domestic abuse. In recent weeks three NFL players found themselves at the center of controversy for abusing women in their lives. The most notable is Ray Rice, who was seen on video knocking his wife unconscious on an elevator. On the heels of this story is an account of Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals accused of head butting his wife and breaking her nose after she refused his sexual advances. Then there is Greg Hardy, “The Kraken”, of the Carolina Panthers. In July, Greg Hardy was found guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend and threatening to kill her.
These were the most notable abusive acts by NFL players against women recently. There is another NFL player that has made the news for an abusive act. However, in this case it wasn’t against a woman.
Adrian Peterson, of the Minnesota Vikings, is accused of going too far in disciplining his four year old son. It is said that Peterson used a “switch” in disciplining his son and left bruises on the child.
ESPN writer Kate Fagan weighed in during an interview and called on the NFL to invest millions of dollars to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse. She even conveyed that we need to reprogram how we raise men.
What are your thoughts on domestic violence? Do you think it’s gotten worse over the years? What can be done to resolve this social ill? Does the Holy Bible offer a solution?
