Many do not realize the full impact that political correctness has had and continues to have on society as a whole. It is often thought that we must simply be careful what we say so as not to offend others. Certainly, that is a worthwhile endeavor, but political correctness when taken to its logical conclusion does far more harm than good.
I had not heard of “Pigford” until recently. I thought it was a slang term invented on the streets of Chicago or some other large city. Didn’t make any sense and I really wasn’t interested in finding out more about it. That is, until recently.
The absurdity is becoming too much. In fact, I would hope that even leftists would begin to see the ridiculous aspect of their own behavior, but maybe that’s too much to hope for altogether.
A week or so ago, a 15-year-old student wore a shirt featuring the NRA logo and an AR weapon. The slogan on the shirt stated, “Protect Your Rights.”
The underlying idea of political correctness has to do with the belief that because of past sin, things need to change for minorities. To that end, we now have groups like the NAACP and others that work to keep blacks falling way behind. It even means that through affirmative action, blacks (and other minorities) are often given a leg up over whites because of perceived “white privilege.” This stems from the unproven critical race theory that says whites, by virtue of being born white, have had (and continue to have) privileges that those of other races do not enjoy. This is why groups like NAACP exist, by the way. It is to ensure that “equality” is emphasized.
If it wasn’t so true, it might be comical. Unfortunately, because it is true, it is far from comical. When I ask (in the title of this article) why liberals seem to determined to change America, I’m speaking of what appears to be the general view held by a majority of liberals in America. Certainly, there are exceptions to every rule.
The point is that though judgment was coming and did come to Noah’s generation as well as Lot’s, life went on with a sense of normalcy that guided most people’s lives each day. In spite of the fact that Noah was building this huge boat in the middle of a field, people continued with their lives. They married, they gave in marriage, they worked, they cooked meals, they did the normal things that people do today.
The elite throughout the centuries have always done whatever they could to make as much money as possible off of the “little people” who are – to them – little more than serfs within their kingdom. We see this repeatedly going back to the Rothchild family when they realized that they could make a good deal of money by loaning their own money to governments, instead of individuals, families, or even small businesses. They stood to make a good deal more money through these loans to governments and the loan was always guaranteed because of that nation’s ability to tax the people in order to repay it.
I believe Paul was implying something far wider in scope than simply talking about those who professed to be Christians and then walked away completely. I now believe he was talking about a huge cultural shift that would take place worldwide in the End Times. I especially believe this would occur in places like America where the founding documents of our country referenced God, understood that He exists as Creator, and in fact, laid the foundation for this country solidly upon biblical principals. While this does not presuppose a covenant with God, the clear reality is that He was included in the process of creating America.
Most of the characters are very difficult to relate to. For the most part, they are decent actors who say their lines and obviously found their marks for the cameras. There is also action as well, but overall, the the characters created by the actors are not that engaging. They tend to be skin deep and that’s about it, though they obviously tried to present a more than one-dimensional character.
Ever since the Sandy Hook situation, people have over-reacted regarding situations that involve guns. I read recently that a 7-year-old student was suspended for carving his breakfast into a shape that somewhat resembled a gun.  The teacher who saw him do it got “mad” at him. Look, we all know how dangerous strawberry tarts can be once they have been modeled to look like guns!
