I was browsing when I stumble upon an article entitled, "Tiger Woods in the news: tabloid revelations and blind eyesBy Jay Busbee. Its about the growing controversy of Tigerwood's infidelity.

Just a few weeks back, after Pacman defeated Cotto, news exploded about his alleged affair with co-star Krista Ranillo. One of our pastors even used this affair as an illustration in his preaching

It was similar with Busbee's thoughts:

But that just-golf-it mindset doesn't account for the fact that Woods is not "just a golfer," he's the public face of an entire corporation. What he does on his own time is not his own business, not when his actions can do financial harm to those who have invested hundreds of millions in his image.  That financial impact, not the "more mistresses or more majors?" question, is the real story here.

I don't like gossips and writing about it is the last thing I want to do. Its truly hard to become a role model, more than a privilege, it is a responsibility. But saying something that you're personal life should be different from your public image is wrong. It is said in the Bible that you can't be lukewarm. You should be either hot or cold. You cannot serve two masters at the same time.

It should be the same with our politicians. If they don't have a good character, if they are honest to their business dealings and their wives, what more to us? We cannot be assured that they will be honest in srving our country.
