Words have meaning.
But what happens when terms are misapplied?
Father of Lies
Defining terms and building arguments on false premises is routine today. You need to make your kids aware of this by having regular talks with them about it. For example, racism, like mental illness, exists and always will. But if you buy the lie that you’re a racist because you believe that all lives matter or that America is still systemically racist then whatever your skin color is, you’ve been fooled.
Our kids have bought a lot of this stuff and it’s the media, social media, and our public schools promoting it all. With your kids, Google a guy named Chris Rufo and get the rest of the story. Remember, the devil is the father of lies and the taster of semantics.
