Truth will vanquish lies coming from Trump White House

"The lie" has ruled Washington, D.C., and especially the White House, for over two years, maybe even for decades. Our present leader, Donald Trump, governs by means of the lie. His base thrives on their leader's lies.

Here's a great story from Buddhist lore: A prince who is a master of weaponry encounters a huge monster whose skin is invulnerable to all of the prince's weapons. The monster tells the prince that he will devour the prince. The prince, in turn, tells the monster that he will destroy it from inside the monster's stomach.

"How will you do that? the monster asks. "By the power of the truth," the prince replied.

The monster symbolizes "the lie." But the truth is mightier than the lie and always conquers it.

Jesus says in the Gospel of John: "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." The truth is God with us, and within us.

Thus the truth will vanquish the monstrous lying emanating from the White House. It's inevitable. Quite soon, I think, the prison doors will open wide and America will be set free.
