20 Outrageous Examples That Show How Political Correctness Is Taking Over America

The thought police are watching you.  Back in the 1990s, lots of jokes were made about “political correctness”, and almost everybody thought they were really funny.  Unfortunately, very few people are laughing now because political correctness has become a way of life in America.  If you say the “wrong thing” you could lose your job or you could rapidly end up in court.  Every single day, the mainstream media bombards us with subtle messages that make it clear what is “appropriate” and what is “inappropriate”, and most Americans quietly fall in line with this unwritten speech code.  But just because it is not written down somewhere does not mean that it isn’t real.  In fact, this speech code becomes more restrictive and more suffocating with each passing year.  The goal of the “thought Nazis” is to control what people say to one another, because eventually that will shape what most people think and what most people believe.  If you don’t think this is true, just try the following experiment some time.  Go to a public place where a lot of people are gathered and yell out something horribly politically incorrect such as “I love Jesus” and watch people visibly cringe.  The name of “Jesus” has become a curse word in our politically correct society, and we have been trained to have a negative reaction to it in public places.  After that, yell out something politically correct such as “I support gay marriage” and watch what happens.  You will probably get a bunch of smiles and quite a few people may even approach you to express their appreciation for what you just said.  Of course this is going to vary depending on what area of the country you live in, but hopefully you get the idea.  Billions of dollars of media “programming” has changed the definitions of what people consider to be “acceptable” and what people consider to be “not acceptable”.  Political correctness shapes the way that we all communicate with each other every single day, and it is only going to get worse in the years ahead.  Sadly, most people simply have no idea what is happening to them.

The following are 20 outrageous examples that show how political correctness is taking over America…

#1 According to a new Army manual, U.S. soldiers will now be instructed to avoid “any criticism of pedophilia” and to avoid criticizing “anything related to Islam”.  The following is from a recent Judicial Watch article

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

#2 The Obama administration has banned all U.S. government agencies from producing any training materials that link Islam with terrorism.  In fact, the FBI has gone back and purged references to Islam and terrorism from hundreds of old documents.

#3 Authorities are cracking down on public expressions of the Christian faith all over the nation, and yet atheists in New York City are allowed to put up an extremely offensive billboard in Time Square this holiday season that shows a picture of Jesus on the cross underneath a picture of Santa with the following tagline: “Keep the Merry! Dump the Myth!

#4 According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against criminals because it has a “disproportionate” impact on minorities.

#5 Down in California, Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill that will allow large numbers of illegal immigrants to legally get California driver’s licenses.

#6 Should an illegal immigrant be able to get a law license and practice law in the United States?  That is exactly what the State Bar of California argued earlier this year…

An illegal immigrant applying for a law license in California should be allowed to receive it, the State Bar of California argues in a filing to the state Supreme Court.

Sergio Garcia, 35, of Chico, Calif., has met the rules for admission, including passing the bar exam and the moral character review, and his lack of legal status in the United States should not automatically disqualify him, the Committee of Bar Examiners said Monday.

#7 More than 75 percent of the babies born in Detroit are born to unmarried women, yet it is considered to be “politically correct” to suggest that there is anything wrong with that.

#8 The University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD) initiated an aggressive advertising campaign earlier this year that included online videos, billboards, and lectures that sought to raise awareness about “white privilege“.

#9 At one high school down in California, five students were sent home from school for wearing shirts that displayed the American flag on the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.

#10 Chris Matthews of MSNBC recently suggested that it is “racist” for conservatives to use the word “Chicago”.

#11 A judge down in North Carolina has ruled that it is unconstitutional for North Carolina to offer license plates that say “Choose Life” on them.

#12 The number of gay characters on television is at an all-time record high.  Meanwhile, there are barely any strongly Christian characters to be found anywhere on television or in the movies, and if they do happen to show up they are almost always portrayed in a very negative light.

#13 House Speaker John Boehner recently stripped key committee positions from four “rebellious” conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives.  It is believed that this “purge” happened in order to send a message that members of the party better fall in line and support Boehner in his negotiations with Barack Obama.

#14 There is already a huge push to have a woman elected president in 2016.  It doesn’t appear that it even matters which woman is elected.  There just seems to be a feeling that “it is time” for a woman to be elected even if she doesn’t happen to be the best candidate.

#15 Volunteer chaplains for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have been banned from using the name of Jesus on government property.

#16 Chaplains in the U.S. military are being forced to perform gay marriages, even if it goes against their personal religious beliefs.  The few chaplains that have refused to follow orders know that it means the end of their careers.

#17 All over the country, the term “manhole” is being replaced with the terms “utility hole” or “maintenance hole”.

#18 In San Francisco, authorities have installed small plastic “privacy screens” on library computers so that perverts can continue to exercise their “right” to watch pornography at the library without children being exposed to it.

#19 You will never guess what is going on at one college up in Washington state

A Washington college said their non-discrimination policy prevents them from stopping a transgender man from exposing himself to young girls inside a women’s locker room, according to a group of concerned parents.

#20 All over America, liberal commentators are now suggesting that football has become “too violent” and “too dangerous” and that it needs to be substantially toned down.  In fact, one liberal columnist for the Boston Globe is even proposing that football should be banned for anyone under the age of 14.

    Michael, how would you feel if extremist Christian terrorists attacked a people, and, in response, that people connected Christianity to terrorism, thus implying that all Christians are terrorists? Would you like to be labeled as a terrorist?

    • Bad Kitty Cat

      There is NO labeling involved with saying a terrorist group holds certain beliefs! I believe he is commenting on how crazy it is to sacrifice important information on these groups–many with strong religeous convictions that strongly influence their behaviour–for the sake of political correctness!

    • Ralfine

      Let’s have a look at the terrorists in Northern Ireland – they are all Christians.
      Basically all political and religious groups had and have their terrorist organisations.

      • otter1111

        They may call themselves Christians, but they are not following the teachings of the church. Also, most of the violence has stopped since about 1998.

        • Tony

          Same can be said of the terrorists who claim to be Muslim. “They may call themselves Muslims, but they are not following the teachings of the Koran.”

  • About the 14 y/o limit: You can’t fight physics. She is arguing from experimental evidence. Facts always win.


  • The Public Relations People strike again. There is nothing new about political correctness. A good PR person(not man, not woman) can convince someone of their own free will to do whatever they want them to by staging things right.

    It has been politically correct to do a lot of things and it has gone on for a very long time.
    I remember when: Hairstyles had to be politically correct for you to find work(1970s). All the best hairstylists had to be gay! Computer techs had to look like they slept in their clothes(maybe they did). IBM had a correct dress code and everyone had to abide by it to stay employed. It is politically incorrect to show any kind of stereotype or prejudice. It is incorrect to be a gentleman and open doors for women and children. Equality is king or is that queen?

    That is just the beginning.
    Christians are old fashioned and out of taste. Tell that to all the women out there working two jobs to support themselves and their illegitimate children. I remember when the respectable thing to do was get married, committed to one another, and raise a family in a decent environment. So I am politically incorrect and probably will be the rest of my life.
    I am Christian and proud of it. I believe in miracles. I consider myself literate in science. I believe in Christ and I am not ashamed of it.

    I think every religion has decent people and terrible people. The Bible says you may judge them by their actions. We are talking about the fruits of their harvest rather than what they say.

    The different countries and cultures speak volumes about just who they are and how they act towards their women, children, foreigners, and those of a different belief system than their own. I am politically correct because I have not mentioned names. We all can put names to this description.

    I think the many varieties of Christian show just as much who they are as well. Not all Christians practice what they preach. That does not make all Christians bad. Just those that practice lying and deceit.
    The same goes for just about every religion on the planet.
    If we are controlled it is by our bias. It is what is acceptable socially that controls most people. This changes with time. It changes with the way PR agencies have manipulated what is socially acceptable.
    So even if you are completely right, the PR people can make it look like you are a fool and wrong. I suggest they get very big salaries to perform this alteration of society. It has been used to manipulate people for a very long time. This dates back to hidden persuaders in the 1950s or even earlier.

    • Phineas T

      It’s interesting to know, and most don’t, that Political Correctness was an intentional “invention” of socialists at the Frankfurt School back around 1930 to bring Marxist social conventions into mainstream society. Political Correctness has been accurately described as Cultural Marxism. Yes. PC is indeed a Marxist tool of conquest.

      • Zaphod Braden

        Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They Hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse…More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their blood- stained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of its perpetrators.”
        ———– and the YOKE goes on the necks of the CHRISTians ————-

  • Jodi

    #14 It will be Hilary for the Dems and nobody will be able to beat her because the media will portray her as the most compassionate candidate for the gays, Latinos & women’s rights. The media will smear no matter who is running on the other side & make them look like a murderer, liar, hides his money in the Cayman Islands, hates women, Latinos, gays & the poor. Pretty much the same tactics they used for Obama. On that note, there seems to be a lot of rumors that the Republicans want to run Jeb Bush for prez in 2016. Once again, instead of trying to win they will loose because Jeb is the same as Romney. It seems like a loosing battle. We are in so much trouble.

            If you really are from Australia then you don’t have an opinion what happens here. Do we butt in to your elections and political campaigns? People need to relearn what respect means and stop putting their noses where they don’t belong. We in the US will deal with our own problems.

          • DrBrodski786

            Spoken like a true Trump supporter … and insular American. When American is the leader of the free world I certainly do have an opinion and a right to express it. Get over yourself and get used to it.

          • 503F

            No kidding,

            The only people we allow to interfere in our elections work for Russian intelligence.

          • DrBrodski786

            When Trump and his actions affect everyone in the western world, I’m more than justified in having an opinion and expressing one. It’s you and your insular attitude that need to learn respect.

          • Casey Jones

            DrBrodski, Please take your hatred somewhere else. Maybe it’s you who is insular. Stop judging 325 million people as being all the same – it’s tiring to hear.

          • DrBrodski786

            If I was insular I would have little or no idea of world issues so that isn’t true. I’m also not spreading hate or “judging 325 million people as being all the same.” At least get your facts straight before putting words into other’s mouths.

          • Casey Jones

            “Spoken like a true Trump supporter … and insular American”. These are your words. I understand your comment about Mr. Trump; however, please explain “insular American” and how this statement is not judgmental and insulting to all Americans. Thank you.

          • DrBrodski786

            I can see how you might find it offensive, since “insular American” could be interpreted as labelling all American people as insular. So I’ll clarify by stating that wasn’t the meaning I intended.
            I intended that in the same way I said ‘a true Trump supporter” and we all know that certainly doesn’t refer to the average American since most voted against him and hate having him.
            So “insular American” only referred to Americans who have an insular attitude and who know and care little about anything outside of U.S. borders. Sure, it’s a stereotype, but stereotypes usually exist because of a particular phenomenon causes them. “Telemarketers are annoying pricks that usually call people at dinner time. Yeah, that NEVER HAPPENS.”

            One of my favourite examples of the “insular American” was when Australian Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe visited New York as guest host for an Aussie travel TV series. I think it was Getaway and they did a segment on The Big Apple. Anyway, Ian approached a range of strangers hoping to see if he would be recognised and none of whom knew who he was. I remember one person said they thought he was an underwear model. Now, if Michael Phelps visited London, Paris, Tokyo or Sydney, people would have known his name or at least recognised he was an American swimmer. But even in a sports-mad country like North America, the average person on the street did not recognise our multiple world record holder.

            It’s encounters like those and cases like that which have created an international stereotype over the years that America is a navel-gazing culture that knows a lot less about the rest of the world than we know about it. I just want to clarify that not all Americans fit that stereotype and many are well-traveled and well-educated in an international sense.

    I think PC pressure is redefining America, and it’s made worse by TV. I think one of the worst things that’s happening is the emasculation of American men. Pop culture and the PC crowd are trying so hard to blur the lines between men and women, and it’s working. Men see themselves as lazy, incompetent dolts, being pulled on puppet strings by their wives. I see men all the time refer to their wife as “their real boss.” It’s okay in jest, but it’s seriously become more than a joke, and men are forgetting how to be men. And women, you are beautiful; please stop dressing like men! Down with pant suits. Yuck! G*d made us different for a reason.

    And again, I know this is unpopular, but there are way too many mothers of school-aged children in the workplace. Of course some of them have no choice, and my heart goes out to those women. But a great many do so because they want to. I worked in corporate America long enough to realize that “need” can be manufactured (it may be last thing left that Americans manufacture).

    And what to say about #11, the banning of pro-life license plates… Lord, help us. The way we have managed to devalue life in this country makes me think that we are so broke, only God himself can fix us.

    • Tony

      God? I laugh at the notion. Riddle me this:

      God created man. God can see the future and all that is for He is omnipotent. He created man knowing the fate of man. He then asks man to do certain things that some will not do, already knowing this because He knows all. He already knows those who oppose Him will before they are even created. If that isn’t Sadism, I do not know what is. He is literally creating some just to punish them. Once more, He gives man the concept of will and choice but creates them already knowing their fates. He chooses to not help, to let some suffer, because He wants to. And furthermore, to decline this is to say God truly isn’t omnipotent, that He is less than a God, THE God. So my question is this, why?

  • jim

    You are clearly biased towards Christianity. Which is fine, but, really, who cares that there are less Christians on TV? As an atheist I see this as a welcome development. The football thing too is understandable if you are up to date on all of the gambling and slumminess of pop warner. Concussions. That’s ok.

    Everything else is ridiculous. Especially #19.

    • Ralfine

      When I watch an american movie I see a disproportionate number of Christians and patriots. Even kid’s movies have the american flag and some form of hymn singing. It often reminds me of the old communist propaganda films for children.

      • otter1111

        Positive portrayals of Christians in the movies, especially Catholics, are extremely rare. They are almost always portrayed as corrupt, hypocrites or fools. But I’ll bet you can’t find a movie where a homosexual character is looked at in a bad light.

        • Ralfine

          You’d probably lose the bet. Check out all the gay themed movies and sitcoms and you’ll find enough bad characters.
          I think Queer as folk should have a bad character portrayed.

    “A Washington college said their non-discrimination policy prevents
    them from stopping a transgender man from exposing himself to young
    girls inside a women’s locker room, according to a group of concerned

    Oh come on, the lady was sitting in the sauna and getting changed in the locker room.

    OK, there were some muslim girls present who haven’t seen male genitals before.

    But staring is impolite. Just look away.

    Next time have another woman present to seee whether the lady in question was just changing clothes or whether she was displaying herself.

    Time to introduce mixed saunas in the US. What’s wrong with looking at god’s creation anyway?

    • If your daughter was in a “women’s locker room” and a man came in swinging his you-know-what, wouldn’t you be concerned? If you have a penis, you are a man. Sorry, there is no “hermaphrodite” dressing room, but if you are a person with a penis, you need to go to the MEN’S locker room. Are we so lost as a society that we have no more common sense?

      • Ralfine

        No, I wouldn’t be concerned. My nieces (don’t have daughters) have been taught to scream. And they have seen naked men at the beach. Anyway, where they live in Europe, the locker rooms are mixed. Only the changing cubicle is large enough for 1 person with a kid.

        And where I lived, in Hong Kong, the locker roooms are always attended by cleaners. But then, over there men who go to locker rooms, don’t have problems with anyone changing there. There is no rough housing and stupid banter in locker rooms as is customary in western societies.

        Anyway, the article wasn’t about a man. It was about a transsexual, who by nature is not interested in the usual (and dangerous) male behaviour, which is why s/he prefers not to go to the male locker room.

        • Tabitha Elkins

          Couldn’t a rapist simply dress as a transvestite to get into the women’s locker room? Or are you convinced that a rapist would never think of that?

        • Prizilla – That’s all fine in Europe and Japan where it is their established culture. Good for them. It is not fine here! It is important to be tolerant of others and to try to be respectful of their lifestyles’, even if they revolt some of us.

          HOWEVER, that stops when those with said “alternate lifestyles” start to impose them upon the rest of us. What’s next, Apologizing for pedophilia? Oh wait-that is already happening now!

    During the 2011 legislative session, the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 289, which authorized the issuance of a “Choose Life” license plate.
    However, officials say the legislature repeatedly refused to authorize a plate that supported the countervailing position in favor of reproductive freedom….”

  • Tony

    Firstly, we can explain Pi, yet Pi is infinite. We might not be able to calculate all of the decimal places given all of time but we can still define it as the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter. Secondly, is seeing into the future evil?
    Thirdly, and my favourite point here, by not being able to do something evil, he isn’t technically omnipotent; “(of a deity) having unlimited power; able to do anything” with impossible (your word of choice) being “not able to occur, exist, or be done.” That contradicts itself.

    • whawell

      I will attempt to answer your questions in the order you presented them.

      First of all, the value of Pi is not “infinite” as you stated. But the number of fractions used to express its value is innumerable. Pi = 3 + 1/10 + 4/100 + 1/1,000 + 5/10,000 + 9/100,000 +….. But I get your point, we know something about Pi, yet we do not know it’s full value even though we know it lies somewhere between 3 and 4. This is also true about God, whom we will never fully comprehend as mere human beings.

      Why did God create human beings knowing some of them would ultimately reject him? The answer to the question can only be speculated with the limited knowledge we have through His revelation in Scripture. God created man for his own pleasure and glory knowing some men would reject him. But does that mean that God is somehow vindictive and uncaring when every person is given an opportunity to freely choose to either accept or reject him? Who’s to blame here for the ultimate fate of suffering and damnation, God or man? Since man is free to decide, man bears the burden of responsibility. I’ve read many commentaries on this question. None of them seem to offer a full explanation. Here’s one however that is both simple and somewhat satisfying. You can access this commentary by doing a Google search on “Ask a priest why did god create us knowing that we would fall”.

      Finally, as I explained in a prior comment, God is not omnipotent in the sense he can doing everything, including something against his own nature. So, “having unlimited power” or being “able to do anything” must be understood in the context that God cannot go against his own nature. As to my alleged contradiction, you obviously pick out some of my diction that was edited out just after I posted the comment since it does not appear anywhere in the comment above. Because my comment was posted several days ago I cannot remember why it was edited out. I can only surmise I did so because it appeared to “contradict itself” as you stated. My apology.

      • Tony

        I’m saying the decimals to Pi are infinite for it is an irrational number. Pi starts with 3.14159265359, but no finite number of digits can represent it exactly and it does not end in a segment that repeats itself infinitely often. This means it would take an infinite number of digits to display Pi exactly.

        Your second paragraph is literally the logic I’m trying to argue. If someone can see the future 100%, not predict but SEE the future, that implies there is a single future, and that for that single future to happen all choices must be made that align with it. That means all choices are predetermined.

        Omnipotence means they can do everything, if God CANNOT go against his own nature, that means there is something he CANNOT do. Therefore not omnipotent, therefore not a god, not THE GOD. I’m just using some logic here, basic logic, to try to make people stumble. You are, however, ignoring the logic completely. However, I shouldn’t be surprised as that is what one is doing all alone, isn’t it? (RHETORICAL QUESTION)

        • whawell

          The statement from scriptural scholars that God can do anything – that is, that He is omnipotent – has always been intended to mean God can do anything that is good. Begin by reading Genesis and you will see why that is so: God creates and everything He creates is “good”. In contrast, using your logic and definition of “omnipotent”, you are right, God is not omnipotent. In other words, the question concerning God’s omnipotence depends on what one means by “omnipotence”.

          Concerning God’s omniscience: You made the inference “for that single future to happen all choices must be made to align”. The fact God can see the future does not necessarily mean the choices are aligned to make it happen. In Christian thought, God has given man some ability to choose. So, if that is the case, instead of the choices “being aligned” or being made to conform to the future God sees, the future is unfolding (or being created) by the choices we make. That is to say, the future is being determined by the choices we make.

            Sending people to hell for eternity for temporal infractions is not “good.”

          • whawell

            Wow, I’m surprise someone read my comment written several months ago. Anyway, I happen to agree with your statement. Temporal infractions in themselves will not condemn one to hell forever. If not repented, however, sins lead to a greater and greater rejection of God. Anyone totally rejecting God is in serious danger of eternal damnation. Since rejection is a choice one makes, each person determines for himself or herself their ultimate fate. God does send people to suffer eternal damnation. I hope this clarifies any confusion you may have had. It’s the best explanation I can think of.

    #2 – this is not a case of “political correctness”. It is a case of “correctness”. Terrorism is independent of religion just like murder is independent of knives. Sure, you can murder someone with a knife and the murderer can hold it aloft and say that the knife is the tool of choice to carry out murders…but you can’t go around calling everyone who uses a knife a murderer.

    #3 – for this point you should really have given examples of which “authorities” and what the “public expressions of christian faith” were because the example you gave (of the atheist’s advertisement in Time Square) is actually an argument against your case.

    #5 – this is not an example of political correctness.

    #6 – this is not an example of political correctness.

    #7 – at this stage I feel like I need to give you the definition of political correctness. It is “the avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against”. Saying that it’s wrong to have a child when you’re not married is certainly perceived to be marginalising or insulting to single mothers – many of whom have absolutely every right to have a child with or without a partner. It’s perceived this way because saying you HAVE to be married to have a child is just a way of saying that if you’re a woman and you get pregnant without being married then it’s okay for people to victimise you (and clearly, that is not okay). Single mothers need support – not derision. You suggesting that being a single mother is ‘wrong’ is certainly politically incorrect.

    #8 – I’m not sure what they were advertising but once again I don’t think this is a case of political correctness. I think this is an example of freedom of speech. They exercised their right to advertise something they felt was relevant and they were allowed to.

    #9 – now THIS is an example of political correctness (well done). And it’s gone too far! However, and this is just my personal opinion, if the students wore those shirts specifically because it was the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo and they did it to throw the american flag in the faces of Mexican children who were celebrating an important cultural holiday (for them) then they should absolutely have been sent home to change and they should have been berated for being culturally insensitive. After all – this is what schools are for…to educate children about the world they live in and show them respect for other people and, just as importantly, relieve them of their ignorance.

    #10 – lol. You’ve got me there. That really is political correctness gone wrong. But he does sound like a bit of an idiot.

    #11 – not a political correctness issue. This is a legal issue because it is based on the constitution.

    #12 – oh no…you’ve lost me again. Once again, this is not an example of political correctness. It’s not “politically correct” to have gay people on television. It’s not “politically correct” to have less christians on television.

    Okay, I don’t have time to look at this any more. I would suggest you spend more time talking to people and trying to empathise with people of all walks of life before you publish anything further. Don’t talk to your family or people who love you…they are obviously not helping you. Got to a bar, go to a mexican festival, go to a gay pride march and talk to those people and get their perspective on things. Broadening your experience with people who don’t have the same ideologies as yourself is the only way you can truly have empathy for them and understand what is politically correct and not and WHY political correctness doesn’t have to be a bad word. I actually agree…political correctness and the ideas behind it have gone all askew. But they have done so because of people like you who have no idea what they are talking about.

    the complete wussification of America.. political correctness is in violation of the 1st amendment and is therefor ILLEGAL!

    “Political Correctness” is a Jewish YOKE on the necks&mind of Christian Gentiles.
    Any Bible reader knows what a YOKE is, and how the Jews brag about placing YOKES on Egypt and Babylon. The “holocaust” is a YOKE on the minds of Western Christians.
    Slaves are not “allowed” to have opinions, beliefs, or thoughts.
    Slaves are just supposed to unquestioningly do the bidding of the master .
    THAT is what Political Correctness is, the YOKING/enslavement of the Gentiles.
    Make the Goyim afraid to speak a word, or think a thought.

    “Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.” — Robert F. Kennedy 1966 Speech, US Democratic Politician

    The suppression of our right to free speech should be banned. Those who engage in the practice should be sued in my opinion.

    #16 is not an example of political correctness gone mad. This is an
    example of people whining like spoilt brats because they are forced to
    adhere to equality. It’s the same debate they had in Kentucky when that
    homophobic bitch refused to grant marriage licenses despite it being
    her paid job to do so. If it went against her beliefs that much, she
    should have changed careers because it only meant she was in the wrong

    You poor soul, you don’t know the difference between god as in the gods of mythology and God. Also, even public schools have history books acknowledging that Jesus was a real person. The bible offers his words and it’s up to you to call him liar, lunatic, or LORD…

      Here’s what you don’t know: 1.) You don’t know who wrote the gospels… they were given titles decades after their date of composure. 2.) You don’t know who wrote the Torah… traditionally credited to Moses, but long since debunked… as long ago as Thomas Paine’s “Age of Reason.” 3.) You don’t know if Paul of Tarsus is real or not… never mentioned in any other contemporary source, ie Josephus, Philo, Tacitus, Papias, etc. 4.) You don’t know who wrote the books traditionally ascribed to Paul. Romans and Corinthians seem to be written by the person claiming to be Paul, but Timothy and II Thessalonians, and others, were likely written by pretenders (writing style, diction, subject matter, tone, etc is significantly different.) For each of these things Christians can’t know, there are a dozen things that atheists can know. There are logic gaps, inconsistencies, falsehoods, incompatible genealogies, date discrepancies, fictitious place names, mythical creations (angels, demons, etc.) that defy truth as we know it. Your bible can’t save you… YOU WERE NEVER LOST!!!
