More and more I see the truth being twisted, distorted and even turned upside down to satisfy the agendas of others, whether it be a snide attack on those now joining the Ordinariate (e.g. the BBC Sunday programme) or using part of the truth instead of presenting an accurate and fair picture of the facts. I know I have been quoted on one web site in relation to a letter I sent to some people (how it got beyond them or outside that group is an important question) and that the whole picture has not been presented because to some people, facts are not that important. These days the Media cannot be relied upon to tell the truth, but more and more, I am finding this with individuals. Lying is endemic today, and it has to be said that where twisting the truth suits someone's political - or religio-political - ends, the absolute truth is no longer a requirement. I wonder if facts have ever really been just that. Whilst pontificating, perhaps I should check my own truth rating. However, there is one thing I am sure of; when it comes to matters of faith and spirituality I find it impossible to lie (thank God!). I have been, perhaps, naive in assuming that other Christians feel the same. How wrong can you be?
