Exaggeration and Lying

Four trillion?  Are you sure that statement isn’t coming from a politician who has been lying, always, for a career of around forty years?  Of course, people have been accused of lying when they are merely using hyperbole (exaggeration), like Trump, but if you want us to take Biden seriously, you’ve got to take Trump seriously.  He was as much God’s choice as Biden.  (Vox populi, vox Dei—the voice of the people is the voice of God).

What you don’t know is the number of people who’ve been praying for the success of our democracy.  They are numbered in the millions, and you don’t think God hears them, do you.  If he hears my prayers, he surely hears them.  Don’t think that the foremost civilization, a Judeo-Christian civilization, doesn’t have some creative help from the creator.

I don’t profess to be a healer, and I don’t profess to be a priest, but I am a writer and I do write about God.  I am first of all a human being, susceptible to all kinds of faults.  What I say needs the collaboration of the divine.
