In theory, trials are supposed to be fact-finding missions. In reality, it often turns into word games and manipulation of the rules to obscure the truth. It shouldn’t be a shocker – Original Sin leading to disordered passions and all that – but it’s still a slap in the face the first time you deal with it.

I found out the other day about a process called “Requests for Admission.” Those are statements meant to stipulate facts in a case so the trial doesn’t get bogged down trying to prove that 2+2=4. The questions are phrased to elicit a straight yes/no answer.

Of course, the devil is in the details. And given the nature of the modern practice of law, those details come complete with pitchfork and a distinct smell of sulfur and rotten eggs.

The stench comes from the wording of the questions, changing the language to make the statement false-to-fact in subtle ways that are easy to miss, designed to trap the plaintiff and confuse the issue.

A series of four questions that were asked by a defendant in a COVID shot mandate case is a perfect illustration.

See if you can spot the distortions:

  1. Admit that you requested a religious accommodation to ****’s Covid-19 vaccine policy because of your belief that the vaccine uses fetal cell lines.
  2. Admit that the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine does not contain fetal cell lines.
  3. Admit that the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine does not contain fetal cell lines.
  4. Admit that the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine does not contain fetal cell lines.

It all starts with the first sentence. The religious objection was because the COVID shots relied on tests using the fetal cell line from a baby aborted in the Netherlands, utilizing that literally unholy substance to justify putting the injections on the market. This distortion of the request with carefully crafted wording designed to create confusion by masking that deception with a verbal shell game instead of openly making the effort to uncover the truth is something that violates the very spirit of the law.

Do the listed shots contain fetal cell lines? Well, the drug companies have refused to reveal the ingredients in their concoctions, which leaves the question open to debate. For all we know, they used a ham sandwich in the formula.

Why is there such suspicion of the legal system? Hey, I have no idea what could have caused that.

All this makes me want to use strong soap to scrub off the moral contamination of the system.
