Trustworthy People

"Trust is like a mirror: You can fix it if it’s broken, but you can still see the crack in the reflection."  - Lady Gaga

Already you are amazed that I would quote someone like Lady Gaga, well, so am I.

The Wagner Group & Reader’s Digest recently did a national survey.  They wanted to know "The Most Trusted People in America."  Results:

#1 Most trusted person in America - Tom Hanks!  Yes indeed.  A person that makes a living acting like other people.  A person that has put millions behind liberal democratic causes - such as same sex marriage.  Why is Tom Hanks #1?  According to the analysts, because he has the right "face shape."  Yep.

#2 Most trusted person in America - Sandra Bullock!  Yes indeed.  A great contributor to good causes, but refuses to use the word "God."

#3 Most trusted person in America is Denzel Washington!  Yes indeed.  Seeing a pattern here?  We trust people who make a living acting like other people!?  Denzel claims to be a Christian & is faithful to his church.  He is also a large supporter of the Democratic party & causes.

#4 Most trusted person in America is Meryl Streep!  Yes indeed.  She claims to be spiritual, but avoids religion & doctrines.  She has financially supported quite liberal causes

Out of the top 10 trusted people, 5 are actors, one is a talk show host - Alex Trebek.

There are some decent people on the list, but the 1st person associated with any faith is Billy Graham at #67!

(In fact, he is the only religious leader in the top 100, unless you want to include Tim Tebow at #40.) Oddly, Pres. Barak Obama beats Graham by being the #65 most trusted!?

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen."  That is the only place you can really put your full trust.  I think America has a distorted sense of trust.

Trust me . . .
