Brother Blaine,Yes! I think you have hit the nail on the head!PC is a systematic institutionalization but carried out in the context of social engineering, as you brothers have pointed out- conform or else.... Remember the 5 stages of persecution for the non-conformist;1. Stereotyping 2. Vilifying 3. Marginalizing 4. Criminalization 5. Outright (justified) Persecution PC sets up a systematic means to do this tho under the guise of tolorance and protecting the minority but that's not as likely to occur long term as is an established social order that's persecutes those whom don't hold to that humanistic ideology. So yes just as the examples you listed led to the persecution of Christ followers, so too is that an ever present potential where a society has embraced PC. Brother Julius,Yes it is man pleasing at the end of the day, that's just what it is. But because it's cloaked in a garment of seeming kindness we must be mindful not to let ourselves go the way of the world but rather do as our King commands,... and love them with such an indomitable love so as to magnify Christ in our bodies:)That's the way that through PC (counterfeit love) the love of Christ can be made manifest and God can be glorified in spite of our circumstances:)We are the lights in the darkness so let us resist the temptations, being renewed in the spirit of our minds that this war is not against flesh and blood and as such our weapons are not carnal,... having done all else - stand! I like this kid and think this young man has a hold of the truth of the matter..... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JCRULcbuaJc
Wow Fletcher! Brother that was quite a video. You are right this young man does have a hold of the truth. Thought the video was very appropriate to discussion of political correctness.Blaine
Todd the question could go the other way bro. Why do so many Christians support Trump being that he is the least politically correct candidate?Blaine
Trump won the Evangelical vote in SC and most of the southern states because he is not politically correct. A lot of Christians are still not supporters of political correctness.Great post JFW, I'll check that vid out.
I guess that was sort of my point. I get why Christians like Trump- because he is not politically correct. Christians that don't like him have other reasons- but they probably do like the fact that he is not politically correct. Does anyone have any insight into whether PC is a relatively new thing, or has it always been around? I know in the novel 1984- written in the 40s I think- PC was legislated. If any of you have not read this novel, or Animal Farm, you probably should.
Trump's speech to AIPAC broke all the taboos of political correctness.http://youtu.be/bHmINZRwiZUProbably, the gutsiest speech I have ever heard given to AIPAC.
Yeah that was a gutsy move.... He went "all in" on that one and most likely made himself a target in doing so.Haven't heard such an overt gesture of solidarity with Israel from a POTUS candidate in my adult lifetime and to do it in this political climate is not only bold but is indeed politically incorrect~
There is very little evidence that Trumps anti 'political correct' talk is any thing but a show, Nothing of his lifestyle nor the choices that he has made through out his life would indicate that his lack of political correctness is rooted from a depth of conviction.a side note : political correctness is a natural occuring phenomena, we see it in Mat. ch 21 v 26.

Brothers, respectfully it sounds like you're putting your hope in a man. Given the choice thst may well be between Hillary Rodham Clinton or Donald Trump. I think this should drive us all to the Lord Jesus Christ.Last presidential election the choice was between Obama and Romney. It wasn't much of a choice then. And I don't think it's much of a choice now.Ravenhill believes that God left America back in the 1990's. And that was probably after the election of Bill Clinton. Since that time the presidential candidates have seen to be judgments of God up on the American political system. I see this upcoming presidential election no different.My recommendation is stay out of the voting booth and get into the prayer closet. But then I am being very politically INCORRECT in this forum. As usual my thoughts.Brother Blaine
