I absolutely detest it.
When candidates and their parties lift sequences of their opponents’ public speeches and comments completely out of context in order to attach some new, radical and disfavorable meaning to them, it is disingenuous, dishonorable, and dishonest.
It is a lie. The truth is not in it.
And it just further contributes to the culture of permissible lying-by-surgical-excision, even in what is called Christianity -but cannot be true Christlikeness.
If you lie about what others have said in order to bolster your point of view and discredit a candidate or policy, it is as surely distasteful to God as if you had done it to His Word. If you pass on a lie that is original with someone else, you are lying – whether in person, by e-mail, YouTube or international television. Politics does not excuse fraudulence. Not even “being right” can mitigate “being caught in a sin” when you lie.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. ~ Galatians 6:7-8
