Guilty as Sin


You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say. ~Martin Luther King.

I once knew a person claiming to be impeachably honest, almost to a fault, but had no problem lying by omission, telling 1/2 the truth leaving the remaining information, the ugly truth hidden casting the first 1/2 in dazzling light and the whole truth hidden at the bottom of the sea. (It comes as no surprise to me this person also claimed to be a Christian.)

How may this play out?
“Did you go out with her last night?” The intent is to assess loyalty.
“I stayed in last night.”

Seems innocent until the man behind the curtain is exposed. She came to his place for a wang doodle, to dance the horizontal mambo, hide the willy, slam the clam. One can claim truth was told but it was as hidden as the sausage in the cabbage patch. What all this boils down to is guilt rains down on the self-proclaimed good person doing nothing, nada no thing.

To see injustice and remain quiet is to perpetuate injustice. Guilty as sin! To not stand up for the person being bullied is participating in the bullying. Guilty as sin! To perpetuate corrupt government by not voting. Guilty as sing. To vote for the lesser of two evils. Guilty as sin! Less evil is still evil. As the slightly lower calorie dark chocolate than milk chocolate does not make it healthy…just a little less bad.

Stand up. Speak up. Be the change.
