The headline of this blog refers to words from the popular song in the 1967 film "The Graduate." You may recall this movie, in which an older woman (Anne Bancroft) seduces a much younger man (Dustin Hoffman).
Unfortunately, this scenario has become a reality, as 60-year-old Iris Robinson -- that's right, another Mrs. Robinson -- of Northern Ireland admitted last week to having a seven-month affair with a man by the name of Kirk McCambley, who was 19 at the time. Yesterday (January 11, 2010) her husband, Peter Robinson -- Northern Ireland's first minister -- said he is stepping down "temporarily" to resolve family matters, according to the New York Times website.
To make matters worse, the BBC has revealed that Mrs. Robinson had taken $80,000 in secret loans from property developers in 2008 to finance McCambley's investments in a cafe near Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. Neither Mrs. Robinson nor her husband had reported the loans to the Belfast assembly or the British Parliament, where the Robinsons each hold dual seats.
Mrs. Robinson has violated the seventh Commandment, which states that one must not commit adultery. I suggest that she turn to Christ and genuinely ask Him to forgive her for her immorality, in order to ease her pain during this troublesome time.
