Political Correctness

I borrowed this from Richard Dawkins site because it makes a point I think important.

Political correctness is a gag on freedom of speech that is stopping us from saying that a religion is wrong, when it clearly is, while simultaneously allowing them to say we are wrong with out their religion. How is this equal?"

Richard Dawkins

Wrong is subjective, based on one's belief, education and experience. I'd rather not accuse someone of being wrong, rather I look for evidence of their being right.

To add to the thought by Richard D, on the PC debate, I like this one.

"Liberty is the right to tell people what they don't want to hear" George Orwell Rick b

Good quote, thanks Rick.

Rarely, outside of blogging, do people truly speak their mind.

I read an article recently about how impossible it is to be in politics and not profess a faith in god. Is this the kind of freedom we want in our country? One that dictates that our leaders put their trust in an imaginary guy in the sky?
