Political Correctness and the Liberal Spirit
These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates. (Zechariah 8:16}
Political correctness demands that the offence felt by others be placed above speaking the truth. The Bible teaches us not the seek the praise of others, but speak God's truth.:Some think that political correctness means to not use racist language because it is a means of stopping discrimination. If this is the case, why does it not demand that Jews and Christians are to be respected? Why are Christians and Jews exempt from political correctness protection? People in the flesh praise humans not God and they just cannot accept God's truth. Therefore, accordingly, it only makes too much sense to them that people who speak of only one Truth, ie. God's truth are not deserving of PC protection.
