song of the honest journalist

some people worship Jehovah

some bow down to allah
some prostrate themselves before golden statues of Buddha
even though he expressly asked not to be made  a god
for some it is beauty that will save the world
for others it is love
The animists revere the spirits of animals

the ancestor worshipers dread the spirits of the dead

The transcendentalists’ temple is Nature

For Christians Jesus is the messiah

The Yezidis’ prophet is the Peacock Angel

but Gandhi’s religion was the truth
and so is mine.  wherever you go from there

the truth must always be the starting point.

It is the be all and the end all, the  Alpha and Omega

to knowingly not tell it  is the worst transgression

the worst sin a journalist can commit
