“All three - disinformation, defamation and slander - are sins!”

Uhmmmm...No they’re not Mr. Pope.

In fact they are valid tactics

But still they are sins.

My grandmother used to say “If you can’t say something nice about a person, come sit next to me”

Disinformation, defamation and slander -— and, in the case of the Obama administration, lies, spin and obfuscation-— are tactics that work for a time. But not with moral validity, and not for long.

This whole discussion reminds me of an old joke.

The country preacher was preaching up a storm, and he noticed that in the first part of his sermon, the old ladies were nodding and murmuring "Amen," but in the last half of the sermon their smiles were slowly replaced by scowls.

So, after the service, he asked one of the ladies how she liked his talk.

"Well," says she, "When you was a-testifying against cussin', fightin', an' drinkin', you was really anointed by the Holy Spirit. That was some g-o-o-o-o-d preachin.' But later on, when you commenced to talkin' against gossip, scoldin', and back-bitin', well, Reverend, we all figgered you done left off preachin' and commenced to meddlin'!"
