mcgwire on roids! who can you trust?

no way! Mark McGwire was on steroids? i don't believe it. i thought he was clean because he said he was clean. oh wait, no one, and i mean no one, honestly believed Mark McGwire was clean. come one!

so today, when i came across this article on ESPN.com i had a nice chuckle. way to go McGwire! way to tell us what we already knew. thanks for waiting. oh yeah, and thanks for lying.

in the article, McGwire says "You don't know that you'll ever have to talk about the skeleton in your closet on a national level," he said. "I did this for health purposes. There's no way I did this for any type of strength use."

we're supposed to believe that after he lied to Congress and everyone else?

bigger issue here...
can we trust anyone anymore? who isn't lying these days? distrust is almost an American value because lying seems to be an American value. scandals, lies, cover-ups - that's what our country is about. we love it. it fuels our media crazed, sound-byte lifestyles.

so how does the Church build trust, and expect people to put their ultimate trust in Jesus Christ, in a low-trust culture?
