What is More Important? The text books or The Reality?

Here is a dilemma.
When the United States of America declared their independence on July 4, 1776, the preamble of the text stated:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Isn’t that noble and beautiful text?
Still, the united states continued slavery for two centuries after those nice declaration, and were the only country practicing the barbarism of public lynching and burning humans as crowd entertainment in the 20th century.
Here is the dilemma. Should I refer to the noble, nicely written words while talking about the United States or should I refer to the reality of what the united states was doing to people.
The same dilemma comes with religions. Their text books are full of nicely written and noble intentions. However most of those religions practitioners are the most violent, the most deceitful, and hypocrite people in The world.
Should I forget the violence of the church and only refer to its nicely written words?
Every time I write about the criminality of the church and its wrongdoings, some book smart Christians come here with some nice quotes of their book.
