Have you ever been lied to? I mean really really lied to? I have. Probably all of us have. And maybe some of us even do the lying.
Last night I dreamed I was with some people who were really really nice. I had spent some time with these people and was forming a relationship with them. Then I found out they were lying to me. They were actually terrorists. And they killed my partner. And I was captured and they wanted me to become a terrorist too. Or die.
It got me thinking about the times I've been lied to. How it felt to be betrayed. It doesn't feel very good.
Then I started thinking about some politicians who lie to us. Every day. Of course we usually know that they are lying to us. You can feel it. It's a different kind of lying than when the people close to us lie.
Then there are the people who lie about abortion. Some directly. Some indirectly. By not telling the full truth. Lies of omission. But the result is the same. They are still lies. People believe the lies and then they start spreading those lies.
Then there is the Catholic church, the one I belong to. Where some bishops have been lying. To cover up evil behaviour. To cover up abusing children and others. Trusts are broken. People are seriously traumatized and harmed.
Some people also lie about the people who run and work at crisis pregnancy centres. They spread all kinds of lies about these places. The liars will say things like the people who work at crisis pregnancy centres are lying to their clients. That they discriminate against LGBT people. That they lie about the physical and psychological risks of abortion.
So many lies. So many destroyed lives.
Speaking of terrorists. And lying. This week Canada's premier pro-abortion organization ARCC called prolifers terrorists. I am not kidding.
I watched two videos recently when I was at a cottage with two of my sisters.
One was called Hush about abortion, the other Fatal Flaws about euthanasia.
These two videos expose many of the lies of the abortion industry and the euthanasia industry. Both are well worth watching.
The world would be a much better place if people just stopped lying. That's all it would take to make a huge difference.
Satan likes it when we lie. It's good to remind ourselves of this sometimes. Me? I go to God to get
relief from the lies. Not sure how I could handle the lies otherwise. I guess I'm lucky. How about you?
