is it secret?

I've heard a lot of secrets lately. I've been told secrets about people living in secret: mostly affairs. 

All of the people say the same thing when/if the secret is uncovered: it was the best thing that happened and though it's been utterly devastating, it feels like a weight has been lifted. It wasn't the affair that was killing them, it was the secret of it. 

Secrets will kill us. The church has a good history of forcing people to live in secret, of laying a heavy burden on people in their effort to protect their secrets. Jesus said he came to set people free and that his burden was easy and light - there are no more secrets, because there is no more fear of what will happen at the hands of the church if the secret is let into the open.

If only...
