Poll finds white lies a necessary evil
« on: July 13, 2006, 10:17:23 PM »
It can be hard to get people to face the truth sometimes. Especially about lying. You don't want your kids to eat too much, so you say all the cookies are gone. You don't feel like going out, so you tell your date something important came up. You're overloaded with errands, so you call in sick.

Lies, all of them but we don't really like calling them that. In a new Associated Press-Ipsos poll, over half of respondents said lying was never justified. Yet in the same poll, up to two-thirds said it was OK to lie in certain situations, like protecting someone's feelings.

Apparently white lies are an acceptable, even necessary, part of many lives even though we dislike the idea of lying.;_ylt=AvIzXIJhXxmkAgrg0khI2ugEtbAF;_ylu=X3oDMTBhZDJjOXUyBHNlYwNtdm5ld3M-

Well I see this as the path to hell start with good intention as lies always come back to haunt ya.
