We live in a strange world full of contradictions and hypocrisy. We seem so ready to condemn those in the public eye: Cardinals, Politicians, Footballers and more without due consideration to proof. It seems accusation is enough to condemn someone.

Are we all part of the Blind leading the Blind until proven guilty?
