“You’ve gotten yourself into a little bit of trouble, Olivia….and I’m here to fix it. You raised your skirt, opened your knees and gave it away to a man with too much power. You’re not rare…You’re not special. Your story is no different from a thousand other stories in this town…So you know how this goes.”----Olivia Pope’s Father giving one of the best TV speeches of all time.

Scandal... the word conjures images of trusted leaders caught up in adulterous affairs, high-powered politicians cutting backroom deals, and scheming, corrupt businessmen running ponzi schemes and swindling others out of their money. The word "scandal" has been thrown around a lot recently, especially since three political crises situations came to light and shook up the White House and other branches of government. Now officials are scrambling to fix what went wrong and to ensure that it never happens again.
You've probably also heard the word "scandal" in reference to ABC's political thriller series starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm and operates as a "fixer" to protect the public images of politicians who find themselves in trouble.
Perhaps, some of us can identify with the word "scandal" ourselves. Of course, our problems and crises may not be in the public eye, but we certainly struggle and have done things wrong that we would be ashamed to have others find out about. In many ways, we are just as messed up as the people we watch on TV and read about on the internet who have to work out the problems in their lives under the microscope of public scrutiny and criticism. Sometimes, we tend to think that we are better than others because we do not have the problems they have. However, we have our own set of problems that we must deal with. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:10, "There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

"Upfront & Straightforward" Host Alan Roger Currie sponsors another one of his provocative "Open Forum Discussion" episodes with his listening audience, this one asking the question: Is Actress Kerry Washington's role of "Olivia Pope" on ABC's hit series, "Scandal" really a 'role model' for women ... and particularly, Black women?

Join us as we turn up the heat for a great salon debate. Must Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope be noble? We borrow the question from Viola Davis challenge to audiences about black artists and their roles.
While Shonda Rhimes is no stranger to diversity, weaving a web of amazing story lines amongst very diverse casts in several shows, Olivia Pope fans prove to be a different audience. Not all Scandal fans have followed Rhimes Hollywood success from show to show. As such, her storytelling style is a bit of a shocker — leaving some beyond shocked.

19 year-old funk-pop artist Philip "Pip" Arnold thrilled fans of NBC's "The Voice" back in 2012. His unique style and look earned him a spot on Adam Levine's team and a berth in the quarterfinals.

On the next Catholic Cast, Pip joins Brent, John and Amber to talk about why he began this new ministry, what it's like to be a Christian following his dream of being in the music business and what it was like to be on "The Voice".
