Do we all spin the truth to make ourselves look good? I think so. Can spin be hurtful when it is so close to falsehood as to be questionable? I think so. Is it always possible to tell spin and truth? No. Should we try? Yes. Are we told to speak the truth in love? Yes. Does that mean we try to put the best spin on what we say and hear to be edifying in our speech. Yes. Is there such a thing as a white lie? Probably, but not as many as most would think.
Is political speech mostly about spin? Yes.
Do lies hurt the truth. Yes.
Will caution and humility and being slow to speak help? Yes.
Thus endeth the rant.
