Now why am I sharing this? Because my five year old conscience was pricked so deeply that I decided then and there I would never steal anything again. And since lying is a form of stealing -- stealing the truth from others -- I also developed a deep aversion to lying.
One thing I can say about myself is that I'm honest. I don't lie, I don't cheat, and I don't steal. I have other faults and temptations to sin, but they aren't in the honesty department.
And that's one of the reasons I find the left so frustrating. Not only do they lie, but they've raised lying to an art form. President Obama is an expert, but the left in general are afficionados of the lie. And, in fact, it appears to be a virtue in their rule of life. Let's take a look at the lies with regard to the "my body, my choice" gang. Roe v. Wade and it's companion ruling Doe v. Bolton that gave us abortion on demand were both based on lies. Norman McCorvey of Roe who was supposedly "gang raped" wasn't. McCorvey said she told Weddington the truth, but the ambitious young lawyer, fresh out of college, had Norma's signature for the case and threw her off like yesterday's garbage. Sandra Cano, Mary Doe of Bolton, never wanted an abortion. She needed financial assistance. But lawyer Margie Pitts Hames was hot for a plaintiff to challenge Georgia's law and lied to her young client about her role in the case. When she realized she was used to legalize abortion she was outraged, but efforts to get the courts to correct things have proved fruitless.
Then we move on to the same sex issue. Lawrence v. Texas was a total setup to challenge the state sodomy laws. Let's face it. None of these issues could win in the voting booth so the left chose legislation by agenda-driven courts. Hey, lying worked to get abortion-on-demand....
One of the left's favorite victim stories has to do with all the hate that Christians have for gays. My goodness, don't you know, Christians are lynching homosexuals just for the fun of it. Look at poor Matthew Shepherd killed in a homophobic hate crime. Oh wait! That entire victim story was a lie that is unraveling. Matthew Shepherd's murder was a drug sale gone bad and one of his murderers was another homosexual. But the left never lets the truth interfere with their propaganda. The Laramie Project has turned Shepherd into a martyr of heterosexual hate. And then there are all the acts of vandalism against homosexuals. One problem, many of them are lies made up by the homosexual college student who claims he's being bullied, or the neighborhood same-sex couple who spray paint their own home. You can check out some of those lies here.
You got to give the left the award for biggest liars on the planet though. I think an appropriate trophy would be the two-faced mask of Janus mounted on a totem pole sporting the Planned Parenthood logo, the rainbow flag, a collage of famous leftist liars like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Saul Alinsky, etc. Give credit where it's due. They sure know how to lie! Unfortunately, they do it without guilt and without apology. Honesty just isn't in their vocabulary. Too bad they didn't learn it in kindergarten when they were five!
