“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, but to be critical those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate that we see in images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroyed …” ~ President Barack Obama
This is a more in-depth look at what Obama said. Yet this is not well received by his confrères in the media and the academia who constantly mock Christianity, allow it to happen or give their consent to it. Political correctness is hypocritical for this reason. It allows for double standards.
Case in point: they are outraged when somebody draws a picture of Muhammad or depicts a Muslim with a suicide vest, calling for the artist to be sued, arrested or have his/her business shut down; yet they are silent when somebody puts a crucifix in a jar full of urine, puts fake blood on a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary or draws a picture of a priest ogling a little boy. Sometimes they themselves are the culprits. This is something that happens on a daily basis. I remember not too long ago seeing an article at Lepanto Institute about an artist who mocked the Holy Eucharist by depicting a tea party with a ham labeled “Corpus Christi” and a glass of wine with the image of Jesus Christ and His Sacred Heart on it. I did not see any major news source report this or any other attack on Christianity. Yet any attack on Islam makes news. I don’t even hear major news sources report recent acts of vandalism on Catholic churches.
It’s time to analyze political correctness and see if it’s really relevant to our society. Quite honestly it’s fake charity because political correctness dictates you must not say something even if it happens to be right because it might offend somebody. Jesus Christ did not care what others thought when He called the Pharisees and Sadducees “hypocrites”, “brood of vipers” and “whitewashed tombs” (cf. Matthew 23). He did not care what they thought when He expelled the money-changers from the Temple court.
