To millions of Christians and people who have not lost their basic understanding of what makes up a reasonable life that is coherently connected to the main stream of thought; abortion is still murder and homosexuality is still perversion. To apologize or shrink away from this view requires lying and denying something so basically human, as to be a sacrilege.
The alternative to this kind of natural, or intrinsic honesty, is to follow the path, the yellow brick road to the fantasy land of political correctness.
PC is not just foolishness, it is becoming dangerous and in some cases deadly.
The refusal of Barack Obama to call Islamic Jihad what it is, is today’s prime example of the kind of denial that is deadly. It is inclusion and diversity that has already cost many people their lives, and will claim even more, if it is not abandoned soon.
When one leader of a nation of 77 million people, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, decides that all of Europe will be labeled “Islamophobic” if they do not allow Turkey to become a member of the EU indicates just how deeply PC nonsense has permeated our world.
Erdogan also got Facebook to back off from any posts unfavorable to Islam, by threats to block the social site throughout all of Turkey.
With over 2600 brutal terror attacks on thousands of people around the world Erdogan doesn’t seem to have enough savvy, honesty or personal cognizance to notice that Muslims are doing more to hurt their religion than Facebook could dream of doing with a few honest posts.
But PC demands its pound of flesh.
Any uncertainty that PC is doubtful, deadly and dehumanizing is put to rest when considering the words and wordy excuses of the PC indoctrinated to cover the deaths of 55 million unborn human babies just in the U.S. and around 160 million worldwide.
For an entire generation we have hidden behind the word ‘fetus.’ Recent secret tapes made in Planned Parenthood offices affirm that some women are still told what Alveda King was told many years ago, that it is just a lump of tissue. Words outside of the purview of acceptable PC verbiage such as child, baby or infant, are never used, and the words human being would be a considered almost a disgrace.
Politically correct speech has itself become the standard of perversion. In fact, it now has lent new definition to the word disgrace.
Disgrace is when someone from a church group likens abortion to a sandwich.
Human Rights Director of the United Methodist Church, Bill Mefford, was photographed holding a sign in a Washington DC march against abortion that read – “I March for Sandwiches.” Mefford’s denomination openly supports the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights, an organization that fully supports abortion.
Such mockery is indicative of the callousness that PC has fostered in our day. Surely this is the day Christ was speaking to when he said…
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (Mt 24: 12)
It used to be called sin, until a few decades back when our worst behaviors were called problems, but under today’s PC everything is now called an issue.
In fact, PC dishonesty is labeling ‘social trends’ as social issues falsely. PC promotes social trends and covers gross immorality by means of semantic wrangling, national dishonesty and spiritual deception. Social issues are more often sin, candy coated for consumption among the indoctrinated. Regardless of how strong the trend, some things cannot be hidden under PC’s choice of words.
- Homosexuality is still perversion
- Abortion is still murder
- Roe v. Wade is still genocide under guise of the law
- Islam is still a violent religion with highly doubtful origins
PC is conversation rooted and birthed in the lusts of the flesh. It is humanity hiding its worst behaviors in plain sight by the use of choice words to disguise the veiled compunctions of the basest of human behavior.
PC hasn’t one stitch of nobility, honesty or humanity – and leads to the wrath of God. To wit:
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (Eph 2: 2-3)
We may bewail the loss of prayer in schools and recoil at the moral decay seen daily in our cities and towns, but there will be no change as long as we cover our worst behaviors under the flimsy veil of political correctness. Americans can still fall to their knees and give it up to God one individual at a time in the privacy of their own homes. Are you honest enough for that?
