    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Wow. Maybe Lauer really is worth $25 M a year if he can keep a straight face and be that sanctimonious while [allegedly] engaging in the same behavior.

    Maybe Lauer can go on O'Reilly's show to commiserate.

    [Alleged] details on Lauer.

    http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/mat...en-1202625959/

    As the co-host of NBC’s “Today,” Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified.

    On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.

    He would sometimes quiz female producers about who they’d slept with, offering to trade names. And he loved to engage in a crass quiz game with men and women in the office: “f—, marry, or kill,” in which he would identify the female co-hosts that he’d most like to sleep with.
    Lauer, who was paranoid about being followed by tabloid reporters, grew more emboldened at 30 Rockefeller Center as his profile rose following Katie Couric’s departure from “Today” in 2006. His office was in a secluded space, and he had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up. This afforded him the assurance of privacy. It allowed him to welcome female employees and initiate inappropriate contact while knowing nobody could walk in on him, according to two women who were sexually harassed by Lauer.

    Based on what we are seeing from Hollywood, it seems 1 in about 3 men, like to expose their penis to random women in hopes she is turned on and climbs aboard. I can think of about 4-5 members of this board who give me the creeps and probably engage in acts like this. So I am not surprised.

    I doubt this is the end of all of these guys' careers. Weinstein and Rose,, probably yes, but I won't be surprised to see Kevin Spacey or Louis C.K. on screen again.

    Louis C.K. is one joke about whipping it out (come to think of it, there was an entire episode of Louie dedicated to a childhood incident of his which probably is largely responsible for his particular psychosis/penchant for "whipping it out") from a comeback.

    Man... How can Matt Lauer be so confident and smug with his O'Reilly interview knowing what he himself does/did and knowing that it probably will all come out eventually?
