“Behold you have declared that I am against killing, yet you continue to kill – some of you even do it in My name. You have said I am against mistreatment and suppression of people, of any classes, races, or genders, yet you continue to allow it. You have said that I am against the dishonoring of your parents, abuse of your children, ill treatment of your very Selves, yet you continue to commit it. You have said that I am against all manner of things that you continue to do. You have not managed to change your behaviors no matter what you claim that I prefer or command.
You have said that I am against lying, yet you lie all the time. You have said that I am against stealing, yet you steal right and left. You have said that I am against adultery, yet you take each other’s husbands and wives every day and every night. Even you governments – those institutions you have created to protect you and care for your needs – lie to you. Indeed, you have created an entire society based on lies. You call some of these lies “secrets,” yet they are lies nonetheless, for a withholding is a lie, plain and simple. It is a failure to reveal the whole truth, to let others know all that there is to know on a subject, so that everyone can make choices based on all the data.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, “Friendship with God”
