It must be noted that in the absence of a higher moral authority and a clear moral code as provided in the Bible, PC is all you have left. Politically correct speech is not up to the job. We can’t sound too righteous because some may be offended and we can’t sound too condescending because someone may have their feelings hurt.

An example is in the President’s refusal to publicly connect Islam with terrorism. His silence is deafening, but the results in real time are bloody. It does well to note that usually the blood of others, not theirs, or his, is spilled when people hide behind politically correct speech.
Today we see PC as part of social trending, it is a Beatles’ kind of wishful imaging of a dandy little world where nothing offends, everything is green and happiness and joy is everywhere. It is the byproduct of a Disney kind of imagination and a liberal education. By any other name it is known as reprobation.
