    Mississippi candidate Robert Foster refuses to ride alone with a female reporter.

    The story is Here.

    Robert Foster, a state representative in Mississippi who is running for governor, got into hot water last week after he denied journalist Larrison Campbell’s request for a 15-hour “ride along” with his campaign.

    Foster was blunt about his reasoning. He tweeted: “Before our decision to run, my wife and I made a commitment to follow the ‘Billy Graham Rule,’ which is to avoid any situation that may evoke suspicion or compromise of our marriage. I am sorry Ms. Campbell doesn’t share these views, but my decision was out of respect of my wife.”
    Orthodox Judaism has similar rules:

    Orthodox Judaism has similar rules. An Orthodox Jewish man may refuse to shake hands with a woman, and the same rule holds for Orthodox women. And neither is permitted to spend extended time alone with members of the opposite sex.
    I myself am Conservodox, thus I do not follow all rules.

    Another question is the danger of being falsely accused. Presumption of Guilt is one of the greatest Human Rights violations.

    Men have seen that they are guilty until proved innocent, and sometimes not even then. They have now — wisely — retreated from women.
    Of course, most women are not false accusers. Most men are not sex offenders. It only takes one false accusation to ruin a man's life.

    Feminists have gotten a clue. The #metoo or whatever they call their movement harmed women more than any single thing in the last 100 years.

    While I sit her and laugh at you girls, get me a sandwich and a glass of ice water.

    Definitely those guilty must be brought to justice. But Presumption of Guilt is Totalitarianism. People were presumed guilty in Totalitarian states -- not under Democracy.

    But the Rodents want to establish a hypocracy.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    Pastor Homer Lindsey Jr., the late pastor of First Baptist Church, Jacksonville FL would also never ride alone with a female who was not his wife. He also would not go on Visitations alone. This was 20 years ago. I don't blame him for this position. There was a previous minister in Jacksonville who was murdered by a woman who was stalking him and made it seem like they were having an affair. It is all the more important today when every male of high status is being accused of events happening years ago and completely unprovable.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Ain't just "males of high status".

    Any male, any time, can become the victim of some deranged female's false claim of raaaaape.

    A university just paid a falsely accused man 750k ...

    ...and paid his lying accuser 475k.

    What the hell, it's a public university. Always more money where that came from, right?

    Many false accusers. She may not be one but he should respect his wife and refuse. I will not walk into a house without the wife there, nor should a man walk into a house without the man being there. It's called in the south, respect the house or respect the other half.

    Exactly. This sort of thing was rare prior to #Metoo.

    I have no problem with that reasoning. Of course you could provide a chaperone but one wouldn't be enough to break a possible he said she said tie. I however am bound by no such rule and I will drive her around for a day if she wishes.
