More than once during recent General Conferences of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, General Authorities of the Church have denounced Political Correctness, suggesting it is an evil and deceptive practice. Think about it.
What is one of the main objectives of Political Correctness? To change the meanings of words. Why the big deal over altering the connotations and meanings of mere words? They are just words, right?
Well, this is what I have to say about mere words:
The pen is mightier than the sword, for by the sword are mortal battles waged, but by the pen entire cultures swayed, eternal societies arrayed, and souls of men saved.
That quote could just as easily say:
The pen is mightier than the sword, for by the sword are mortal battles waged, and by the pen [propaganda, legislation] entire cultures frayed, societies deranged, and human souls eternally betrayed.
Political Correctness is part of the conspiracy. Note that I said "the" conspiracy, not "a" conspiracy. There is only one conspiracy. All corrupt endeavors are appendages to it.
So, what are a few of the roles Political Correctness plays in the conspiracy?
Political Correctness is an oxymoron. Emphasis on moron. It makes that which is innately incorrect and appalling seem correct and appealing.
Political Correctness numbs the conscience.
Political Correctness confounds understanding.
Political Correctness censors freedom of speech.
Political Correctness normalizes that which is perverse.
Political Correctness vilifies that which is pure and virtuous.
Political Correctness demonizes that which is just and true.
Political Correctness persecutes God-fearing individuals and peoples.
Political Correctness leads even the most well-intended souls carefully down to hell.
If your display is wide enough, you might notice the descending stair-step pattern created by the lines of text above. Perhaps that symbolism can help drive my point home.
Now, listen to this.
