Political Correctness

Political correctness has gotten so out of hand that dragons breathing fire are considered a dangerous subject – one that may bring on a lawsuit against the publisher by someone who is offended.

Excerpt from the article:

A leading children's author was told to drop a fire-breathing dragon shown in a new book - because the publishers feared they could be sued under health and safety regulations.
It is just one of the politically correct cuts Lindsey Gardiner says she has been told to make in case youngsters act out the stories.
As well as the scene showing her dragon toasting marshmallows with his breath, illustrations of an electric cooker with one element glowing red and of a boy on a ladder have had to go.

Full article here.

The world is being turned inside out.

What used to be right is now considered wrong.
What used to be wrong is now considered right.
What used to be normal is now seen as abnormal.
What used to be abnormal is now seen as normal.
What used to be considered common sense is now seen as ridiculous.
What used to be considered ridiculous is now seen as common sense.

A very big part of the problem with our politically correct mentality is the legal system. If judges and juries would start throwing out all the ridiculous lawsuits and start fining both the plaintiffs and their attorneys for wasting the court’s time, and quit awarding huge sums of money to people who’ve had their “feelings hurt”, or who have burned their britches with hot coffee that they say should have had a warning label on it, some of this absurdity would stop.

But then, money is the real motivator behind these lawsuits - not righteous indignation. And last time I checked, people seemed to be getting more greedy, not less.

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of all this is that no one seems to care that Up is Down, Down is Up, or "Left" is now Right.

Though I get mocked continuously for it, I honestly see little hope for a turn around. When was the last time this or any nation changed course in so dramatic a fashion that a nations' culture of morality reversed itself? At best there have been tangential changes but I can't think of any time in recent memory when a nation overwhelmingly rejected their immoral past in favor of a moral future.

Having said that, I believe it's only going to get worse. I also believe that Christ is returning very soon.
