Should it be Okay for a Christian to lie and create fake news about Hillary to pay rent & bills?


A New York Times story titled, 'From Headline to Photograph, a Fake News Masterpiece' - a Christian bought a Christian domain & created a fake story about a worker stumbling upon stacked boxes of ballots pre-marked for Hillary Clinton. It made him a bit of easy money & tainted the election further. Many Christians voted for Trump. Is it now Okay for Christians to do this kind of stuff? I know, all you have to do is ask Jesus for forgiveness & you can do whatever you want. But should anyone be able to write anything about anyone or anything? Isn't Free Speech supposed to protect the truth?

    Thank you. I was really hoping that there were at least some Christians with spiritual integrity left.

    I stand corrected. When I read this article, there is a sentence, 'being a christian, myself' - and I read it as being from the author. However, the fact that he targeted 'easily-swayed' Christians on purpose demonstrates their lack of integrity.

    You are taking into a philosophical discussion and turning it into pedological blather. No sanctions were ever mentioned.

    Well there R lots of people who took these 'facts' along with many others & saw them as true. Plus, most 'facts' were blown out of proportion with regards to Hillary compared to every other male politician. Facts & truth R apparently subjecti

    Aime, Have I erred in seeing U as a bright, mature woman? Just a thought, but U may B buying too much "love my Chris," non-stop whining. UR comment above is pure "tantrum." Hope U did not also stomp UR foot. Multi-millions do not accept fake news.

    Did someone implant some device in your brain that would explode if you didn't insult liberals in every single one of your responses?
