I grew up with Bill Cosby. I remember listening to his Wonderfulness album over and over. I knew each of the skits. He came into our houses adn Dr. Huckstable on the super hit sitcom, The Cosby Show.
After more women come forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault, TV Land pulls its “Cosby Show” reruns. This is not the fate many would have predicted for a show that was once so popular it commanded $4 million per episode when sold into syndication, and whose reruns have generated over $1.5 billion in the last 20 years, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Noone was bigger than Bill Cosby in the 1990’s. He had it all.
But the Pride and the power it manifested lead him to abuse women. For a long time, noone believed that this great guy that we grew up with on TV could possibly do the terrible things he was accused of. Now at 80 a guilty verdict comes down.
This is a prime example of the sin of pride manifesting into lust.
