If my wife comes to me in obvious distress and asks "Do you love me?" as a Christian an answer of "I love everyone" would be truthful, but also hurtful and cruel in the moment. If a co-worker or employee comes to me upset and says "My father just died," a response of "Everyone's parents die" would be truthful, but hurtful and cruel in the moment. So when a friend or colleague or even a stranger speaks up in a time of distress and need, and says "Black Lives Matter," a response of "All Lives Matter" is truthful. But it is hurtful and cruel in the moment. To those who read their Bible (or pretend to be Christian), I suggest Luke. To those not so religiously inclined, I suggest MLK - "We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people."
