THE EVIL OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS — PART 5

What were the first four posts in this series on the vile nature of political corectness?

In Part 1, we considered examples of political correctness. In Part 2, we looked at the importance of the proper instruction of our young people. In Part 3 we examined the meaning of political correctness. In Part 4 we consider the role political correctness has in enabling us to sin.

What is the topic of this post?

What Is The Character Of Those Who Promote Political Correctness?

Before we talk about the character of those who promote political correctness, let’s step back for a moment.

  • In Part 3, we defined political correctness as a method of demonizing our opponents. Effectively, we use poltical correctness as “debate” technique. We insist that everyone use the “correct” words, and we shame them if they refuse. That leaves our opponents an awkward choice: reject our attempt to shame them into silence, argue their case using politically correct language that renders their argument into gobbledygook, or just give up.
  • In Part 4, we observed that political correctness is a sin. That is because political correctness is method of demonizing opponents. When we demonize our opponents, we lie about them, and lying is a sin. We also observed that political correctness is method we use to help us believe the lies we tell about our opponents. That is important because in order to sin we must first believe a lie.

Here we will consider the character the of people who use the technique of political correctness as a form of “argument.” What makes these people different from the rest of us? Well, as we hinted in the last post in this series, the politically correct and the politically incorrect are not very different from each other. All of us are sinners. All of us have the capacity to lie about and demonize our opponents, but some of us do so more readily and vigorously than others. Why? That is the focus of this post.

The answer? What we believe makes a difference, and we have different beliefs about God. Some of us don’t believe in God. Some of us are pantheists. Some of us believe in Allah. Some of us believe in an independent, infinite, and personal God. And so forth. However, because of the public school system, and because of our nation’s largely Christian heritage, most of us are either secular or Chistian.

How has this difference in belief — this split between secular and Christian — created a great and growing rift in belief among Americans? Depending upon our attitude towards the nature of God, we will humble ourselves and obey God differently. We will strive to adopt the viewpoint of the One we call God.

  • If we do not believe in the God of the Bible, then we will pursue that which we value the most as our “savior:” sex, stuff, science, state, and/or self. In effect we will become the only God we have; we will do what seems right in our own eyes.
  • If we believe in the God of the Bible, we will strive to obey Him, and we will seek to learn what is right in His eyes.

Genesis 15:6 New American Standard Bible

Then he believed in the Lord; and He credited it to him as righteousness.

So it is that because many of us are “secular,” and many of us put our belief and trust in the God of the Bible, and we have separated into groups with secular and the Biblical world views.

We do not even view each other the same way. The secular view other people as either their superiors or their inferiors. The biblical view other people as being like themselves, made in the image of God.

Genesis 1:26-27 New American Standard Bible

26 Then God said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

What is the consequence of this difference? If we regard others as either our superiors or our inferiors, we will be more tempted to be obsequious towards our superiors and haughty towards those we regard as our inferiors. On the other hand, if regard everyone as being made in the image of God, then we are more likely to treat each other as we wish to be treated.

Matthew 7:12 New American Standard Bible

“In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Why does this matter? Have you have read Book of Judges NASB – Bible Gateway? The Book of Judges NASB – Bible Gateway is the Bible’s horror novel. Why? Well, here is the theme.

Judges 21:25 New American Standard Bible

In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

Instead of allowing God to rule them as their King and doing what was right in His eyes, everyone did what was right in his own eyes. So, the people of Israel abused each other.

What is happening in America as our nation grows increasingly secular? Let’s consider a local example.

We’ve written before about the madness in the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), most recently when it comes to parents protesting LGBTQ pornography in the school system’s libraries. There’ve also been newsworthy moments when parents spoke out about Critical Race Theory in the school district. One of the most explosive moments occurred when the school board, tired of having angry parents (i.e., voters) yell at them, called the cops, who made several arrests, including that of one man getting physically dragged out. It now turns out that the man was protesting the fact that the school’s policies led to a boy in a skirt sexually assaulting his daughter in a girl’s bathroom.

What has happened instead? That father’s display of righteous anger has been used as an excused to treat parents protesting an out of control school boards as domestic terrorists. When the National School Board Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to the Biden Admininstration requesting an investigation of the parents protesting at school board meetings (nsba-letter-to-president-biden-concerning-threats-to-public-schools-and-school-board-members-92921.pdf) under the Patriot Act, Attorney General Merrick Garland responded with a memo, Partnership Among Federal, State, Local, Tribal and Territorial Law Enforcement to Address Threats Against School Administrators, Board Members, Teachers, and Staff (justice.gov).

Fortunately, some people are opposing this abuse of the children and usurpation of parental rights.

Has the so-called mainstream news media looked into that father’s complaint and reported anything about the rape of that father’s daughter? See if you can find anything. Then think about that.

One last thought. We all are born with God’s law written upon our hearts (Romans 2:12-16 NASB – For all who have sinned without the Law – Bible Gateway), but that doesn’t mean we will pay heed to God’s law. It just means we have no excuse. So, we need to help our children. We need to make sure they learn about the Bible. We need to make certain that our children learn about God, that God loves us, and that He wants us to love Him and each other.

What will the last post in this series discuss?
