Christophobes March On

This really is an example of political correctness run amok. So has it gotten to the point that if you work in government you are not allowed to disagree with homosexual behavior based on religious and moral conviction that has nothing to do with animus or hatred of individual persons? If someone was distributing literature that denigrated Christians and accused them of bigotry would that person be censored the same way this fire chief was? Political correctness is a cancer that has nothing to with true tolerance or "inclusiveness." It really is about promoting hard leftist ideals and silencing anyone who dares to disagree with them, whatever the reason. Very often, it is about telling Christians you must change or be silent about your beliefs regarding homosexual behavior or you risk The power of the state coming down on you like a ton of bricks. This is not freedom under ANY objective measure of fairness or reasonableness. leftists progressive fanatics know this but give the self righteous pretense that what they are doing is just.
Political Correctness has run amok in this this country. It is a corrosive force and a cancer. It's been said, in the past being "offended" was an emotion, now it's an argument. "Diversity" and "inclusiveness" have become sacred cows of the left and "progressives" and convenient shields for wanting to suppress any expression that could be construed as Christian or Jewish in the public square. Real appreciation of "diversity" would be to acknowledge the simple and obvious reality that there are some celebrations or customs that are more closely associated with Christianity or Judaism and to allow free expression of these, as should the free expression of other established customs be permitted if its appropriate. Students at this university are not being taught true tolerance and co-existence with others, they are being taught that the world is a utopia where everything possible should be done to never offend anyone, even if that means limiting the free expression of others. I also don't buy the "noble" motives of this university staff. I'm certain that at some level they feel a latent hostility to Judeo-Christian values and the "diversity" and "inclusiveness" meme is a convenient way to restrict its expression.

A Reply to Rush Limbaugh

What I understand to be happening is that many Republican's now believe that political calculations are more important than principle. They want to have it both ways, saying with one side of their mouths, "What Obama did is unlawful" yet "We won't act because it won't help us politically so better to not do anything that could affect us politically." At this point, what is the value of following the law at all, if political considerations trump everything, including the rule of law?
This is a sad article and a good warning of what happens to a society when political correctness runs amok and free speech begins to be stifled because of it. Christianity may lose the place of influence it once had in these cultures, but maybe nominal cultural Christianity is what will wane but those who want to lives of true Christian principle will remain, even if few in number.

Why Did Disney Block God?

Political correctness at its worst on the part of Disney.
I think what scares and depresses me even more is that I wonder if with each day that passes, there are more and more people in this country who want Obama's "fundamental transformation." I could see how the people would be fooled in 2008, but in 2012? Now is when it is becoming really disturbing that Obama is willing to usurp our laws to get what he wants. "the ends justifies the means." Is this really what people want? For the system of government that made our country great to be fractured by a hardened leftist who does not really care about the rule of law if it does not suit his agenda? Obama is only able to get away with this (so far) also because of the complicit biased media, that has ceased to be an objective reporter of events and is now an enabler of leftists ideals and an enemy of traditional or conservative ones.
Dinesh D'Souza tried to warn people about this in the movie 2016. I can see how people could have been fooled in 2008. It is astounding that Obama would be re-elected in 2012.

Neutering Religious Holidays

I have actually started to have feelings of dread about this time of year because that is when you have the secularist fanatics enlist the help of organizations such as the freedom form religion foundation and the ACLU to go out and eradicate any reference to religion in the public square under the "separation of church and state" meme which is one of the most abused and tortured concepts to try and extinguish any mention of God in the public square. Militant secularists claim to put such a high premium on "reason" and being "rationale" as well as open minded but their petty, intolerant actions rely undermine all of their lofty claims to these attributes.
