Jerry Sandusky and the Decline of American Morals

The latest buzz in the media world has centered on the sexual scandal at Penn State. News of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky’s molestation of young boys has caused a ruckus. Though I’m not in favor of the actions Sandusky committed and believe them to be sinful, let me explore something with you. The allegations of Sandusky’s actions are horrific, if true.
