Sharing a piece of the truth

Since June 28, 2009, I have engaged hundreds of individuals from Honduras, the US, Canada, and Europe in discussions and arguments about issues related to the overthrow of Manuel Zelaya. I have found only a handful to be relatively unbiased and open to listening to all points of view (including those they do not like) without fear or judgment. Well over 95% of those I’ve engaged have had clear biases and have largely assumed that the “other side” is not serious or intelligent, possibly crazy, maybe immoral of unGodly, perhaps dangerous. Nearly everyone seems to want to claim sole possession of the truth and deny the other even a small piece of it.
