A BRIEF CONDEMNATION OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

This controversy over Chick-fil-A’s stance on “gay rights” is getting ridiculous.

Political correctness is ethically incorrect, because it attempts to control our thinking, not to mention our speech and writing.

I’ve met some closed-minded conservatives–but the most closed-minded people I’ve ever met were liberals.  Open-mindedness is not synonymous with liberalism.  Open-mindedness is considering all points of view–conservative, liberal, and otherwise–before coming to a conclusion as to what one believes.

And what about tolerance?

Refusal to accept opinions other than your own is the worst kind of intolerance.  Everyone has the right to his or her own opinions, no matter how contrary to public opinion they are.  For the court of public opinion is more unjust than any legal court could possibly be.  Because in the court of public opinion, one is guilty until proven innocent.  And guilt is determined solely on one’s own feelings and beliefs.

Tolerance works both all ways!

    Oh, I agree with you here. It so bothers me when a liberal will say something and then whine about the backlash in the name of “free speech”. Free speech doesn’t mean “no backlash”!

    I think the CEO who voiced his opinion about it forgot that he represented a corporation, so there would be no way of differentiating between his company´s so-called views and his own. Call it a momentary lapse of reason if you will.

      And we all have those. Still, he has a right to his own opinion. President Obama supports “gay” marriage. I oppose it. But I still intend to vote for Obama this year, because the biggest issue facing the U.S. right now is its economy. In the same way, though I don’t normally buy Chick-fil-A’s products (because they’re too greasy), I’m not going to go out of my way not to buy them.
