A dear old friend called me recently to discuss current events. We hold to similar opinions on many subjects including politics and religion. She is exceptionally passionate about problems of our world. I am not the only friend she shares her passion with I realize. Our discussion soon became heated on the subject of a newsworthy story. Three hundred girls were abducted by Nigerian rebel forces and held captive. The rebel leader and his followers took exception with the girls' lifestyle according to various news sources. Religion comprised one of their exceptions. Through our mass media, be it radio, television, Internet, we, the public were besieged by countless reports. What really is the truth in this matter?
