There can be no friendship without confidence; and no confidence, without integrity
Confessing to integrity, refers to the way members of this kind of relationship bear witness to their belief that one should live a life that is authentic, true to oneself, and then true to others. The centrifugal force which pushes them to adopt these tactics is their daring to reach out into the void for the hand of a lover/friend that is also daring. For purposes to combat evil, the concept of integrity includes personal wholeness and consistency as well as honesty and fair dealings.
