I think honesty is a virtue. I prefer truth over comfort. I've noticed that the theists in my life are also the most dishonest people I know. They like inducing a fake sense of calm especially when shit hits the fan. I think this just makes things worse and inspires inaction (like many theist behaviors--like prayer/ forced forgiveness of even the most egregious wrongdoings). It also encourages people hold off on problems and let these problems ferment longer than they need to, thus becoming rotten and, in some cases, completely beyond repair. Thoughts?
