I would say most do not lie. Rather, they hear something from somewhere and because it says what they want it to say, they do not confirm details.
In researching my earlier answer, I came across several articles that referred to this council and other writings, yet the authors, except one, did not properly cite their sources. And the one that did cite other references failed to cite any documents that were the product of this fictitious council. This is exactly what I mean, poor research, not lying. Albeit, someone got something wrong somewhere.
Interestingly enough, he cited the Didache and described as “the first departure from immersion”. Odd that he would say that because that is actually the first historical record of the mechanics of how baptism was administered.
In fact, the only real reference I could find to this council was in the writings of fundamentalists who are opposed to baptism by any other means than immersion.
