I know people (some of them are my close friends) who can't stand any kind of lies, no matter the size or reason for them. I particularly think it's a kind of exaggeration, because white lies are nothing more than lies with good intentions. I know that hell is full of good intentions, but we have to separate things. For example: You can lie because you are organizing a surprise birthday party. What is the problem? I mean, there is nothing too much to hide some information for the benefit of some good event. "Lies" and "White Lies" works in completely different ways for me.
