Contending for Truth

Pres. Joe Biden called Americans to national unity and to defend the truth in his inaugural speech. Biden said “There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and a responsibility, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders, leaders who have pledged to honor our Constitution and protect our nation, to defend the truth and defeat the lies.” Unity behind the right cause is laudable. And defending the truth is paramount to a just society. But is Pres. Biden calling for unity around American ideals that protect life and freedom? Or something else? Is the truth he’s talking about rooted in a transcendent moral order? These questions need answers and there’s little room for error.
