I have always said that there are two sides to every story, and that it is always wise to listen to both sides. In order to resolve conflicts, both sides are heard and the truth will reveal itself. Archbishop Byrnes comes to Guam with this kind of mentality. And we applaud him for it. We want him to listen to all sides of the story. In order for truth to be discovered, one can find it after hearing all sides. When one side tries to suppress the other so their side does not be heard, that is dictatorship. All totalitarian governments suppress freedom of expression and controls the media so that only their side gets to be heard.
There is only one reason why suppressors act in this fashion: to gain control, influence, and power. Such is the case of all dictatorships simply because they fear the truth. The suppression of one side keeps an entire nation into bondage. It is the truth that sets people free from the bondage of suppression because Christ is the truth.
