"With the Exception of the Church, No One Seems to Care Much About What's True Or False Anymore."

Posted on the 05 June 2014 by Brutallyhonest @Ricksteroni

Fr. Philip Neri Powell on what some might call the failing health of truth:

If Truth were a commodity—like oil or pork bellies—its stock value would be very low these days. With the TruthHurtsexception of the Church, no one seems to care much about what's true or false anymore. We are far more likely to hear that truth is a tool in the oppressor's arsenal; or that truth is just a traditional fiction dreamed up by neurotics; or that truth, at best, depends on one's perspective. You have your truth. I have my truth. Who's to say what's true or false? It just depends. Rather than ask if a bit of information is true or false, we're told to ask, “Who benefits from this information? Who's harmed?” Rather than seek the truth, we are urged to “create a narrative,” or “build a perception.” When did this sort of deception creep into our world?

Of course, there's more.

You would benefit from reading the whole thing.

Honest.  It's true.
