For hundreds of years, ‘Before Christ’ (BC) and ‘Anno Domini’ (AD) have been used to label years. These terms made the birth of Jesus the focus of human history, and unsurprisingly, they’ve fallen out of favor in recent years. After all, nobody wants to offend anyone, so the terms ‘Before Common Era’ and ‘Common Era’ have become more fashionable. Of course, whether you use Before Common Era or Before Christ, the reference point is the same: Christ’s birth. The change doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it?
Regardless, these days, offending someone is the worst thing you can do. The days of free speech are definitely numbered, and it’s all because of something called political correctness. Supposedly, political correctness is about tolerance and diversity, but in practice it promotes intolerance and homogeneity. Indeed, if you believe something that offends someone, you and your belief can’t be tolerated. By definition, this is intolerant, and it discourages individual thought. Why is political correctness so popular then?
Well, one of the main focuses of the politically correct is to legitimize sinful lifestyles. This explains why Christianity is hated by the true believer in political correctness. Sure, you can use Jesus as a curse word, but if you pray in His name you’re asking for trouble. What’s the big deal? Simply put, Christianity is exclusive (Acts 4:12). Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6). There’s only one way to Heaven, and we can’t get there on our own. Many people want to live by their own rules and have their lifestyles legitimized. This business of being a sinner and needing a Savior is just too offensive. The Christian faith is the greatest ‘thoughtcrime’ in modern American society, but there are plenty of other politically incorrect beliefs.
Without question, keeping track of all of the politically incorrect ‘sins’ can be tough. Unfortunately, if you say the “wrong thing” you could be fired, sued or shunned, unless you beg for forgiveness. You might also need sensitivity training or counseling of some kind. Is it any wonder that people walk on eggshells and do their best to avoid rocking the boat?
In this way, political correctness is no different than Islam. They’re both completely totalitarian. They both demand complete submission, which explains why the PC police stay away from Muslims. Certainly, the PC crowd should hate Islam, since Muslims strongly condemn homosexuality and gleefully oppress women. Yet, they don’t, and it’s because they have a similar goal. Both ideologies demand complete allegiance to the government, whether it’s secular and “progressive” or a conservative Sharia-based caliphate. Likewise, they both want what Satan wants: the destruction of the Christian faith. I have news for them: it will never take place (Matthew 16:18).
