If you write anything it should be the truth. And if you’re ever going to tell the truth, it should be on your own website. But there’s a problem with the truth. It is no respecter of persons. It doesn’t care who you are.
The truth divides.
Even Jesus, who called Himself the Way, the Truth, and the Life, said it like this:
Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. ~ Luke 12:51
That’s how the truth works. When truth hits anything untrue it doesn’t give way. Truth doesn’t change or bend or accommodate. It stays true.
Politics is about power and compromise. But truth doesn’t compromise. If it did, then it would no longer be the truth. The same applies to political correctness. You notice they don’t say political truth. To be politically correct means to be not true.
And since politics has set itself up as the truth, there can only be serious conflicts with the actual truth.
All of this to say that we now have a choice. If we speak the truth, we are political. If we speak political correctness, we are not speaking the truth. So, many solve this conflict by not speaking at all. Which was the political goal all along.
So, this is a heads up. I’m not going political. I’m just going to speak the truth. Which will seem political. And divisive.
But that’s what happens when immovable truth hits a political object. Something has to give.
