"I gave up all that inferior stuff so I could know Christ personally, experience his resurrection power, be a partner in his suffering, and go all the way with him to death itself." ~Philippians 3:10

Truth is hard to find....

It is so difficult to know the truth in what we are reading and hearing here in Honduras. I honestly have a hard time trying to discern what to believe. I feel that there is so much dishonesty among all the people involved that we will probably never know what has been real and what hasn't. Today we are hearing that the military and police surrounding the Brazilian Embassy, where Mel Zelaya is holed up, are using toxic gases in an effort to get Zelaya to leave the embassy. There are also reports that they are poisoning the water supply. Would these things not be absolutely stupid? I mean, the world is watching and you are going to do things that are so obviously violations of the sovereignty of the Brazilian Embassy and knowing that there are a couple hundred people in there, including women and children? It would be a clear violation of decency and human rights. There are claims of hundreds dead and thousands being detained illegally. Surely the authorities here wouldn't be that nuts. I find it hard to believe that any of these claims are true, but who knows?

On the other side, we have reports of Mel's corruption. There are reports that on Monday, the day he returned to Honduras, that multiple bank accounts of his family were discovered with varying amounts of money that had been taken from Honduras. We have heard that he has given interviews admitting that he has every intention of proceeding with his constituent assembly referendum. He also has admitted that all elections here are corrupt, EVEN HIS. It is all quite remarkable if you ask me.

There is no innocence here. And the truth? Probably none of that, either.
