Is Political Correctness Proper
Second Thessalonians 2:11 says," And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:" Is it possible that this "delusion" could be political correctness in our speech? Do you believe there is a sin in total tolerance, anything goes?

The Bible teaches us to call things as they are. Political correctness teaches us to call things as others want them to be called. Which is Truth? I think its part of the lie of Satan. It's subtle and seems right but...we must obey God when the law goes against Him.

Consider the use of "newspeak" in the book 1984. When our vocabularies are constrained so is the world of ideas. Some of this is good. Some of this is bad. All of this is dangerous to human development and understanding. It can even have an injurious effect on the propagation of the Gospel message that Jesus Christ died in time so that others could live in eternity.

**"The religion builders have so distorted and deformed the doctrines of Jesus, so muffled them in mysticisms... and falsehoods... caricatured them into forms so inconceivable, as to shock reasonable thinkers..." President Jefferson**
Jefferson did NOT believe in the virgin birth, resurrection, or miracles of the gospel.
He was a great statesman, but a punk theologian.

Jack: "Strong delusion" in this context refers to dispensationalism with its teaching of a pre-trib rapture, literal millennium, and usual pop-evangelical stuff."

Mima, political correctness is the height of intolerance. It is not meant to be that way, but this type of expression elevates some groups over others and removes the ability of humans to truly help one another.
It is getting so that doctors and psychiatrists cannot properly treat disorders related to sexual orientation, nor their associated medical issues.
It has impacted our medical system to the point that we have experienced tainted blood supplies - that affected all of us.

Mima 2: Not to mention that this negatively impacts Christians who want to live and work as Christians. The Catholic Church has been greatly impacted by this in many areas of service - adoption services, hospitals, schools - all have been targetted.
Political correctness has supplanted Freedom of Speech.

It is the innate desire of liberal elitists to control everyone else. They are very adept at imposing limits on speech, while often engaging in the very same speech amongst themselves with the justification that only they use the speech in the proper context. These elitists are people who make careers out of being offended and outraged.

Given this week's media frenzy concerning Imus and his racial remarks about the Rutgers Women's Basketball team, I think there is a place for political correctness.

No. "Political correctness" is simply courtesy gone too far.
"Strong delusion" in this context refers to dispensationalism with its teaching of a pre-trib rapture, literal millennium, and usual pop-evangelical stuff.
