I found this posting on Ezra’s site in the comments section of one of the Video threads. I think it is quite timely given the attack on us today….
“Political correctness seeks to establish the domain of a single way of thinking and speaking. Its relativism creates the illusion that it has reached greater heights than the loftiest philosophical achievements of the past. It prescribes itself as the only way to think and speak – if, that is, one wishes to stay in fashion. Being faithful to traditional values and the knowledge that upholds them is labeled intolerance, and relativism becomes the required norm. I think it is vital that we oppose this imposition of a new pseudo-enlightenment, which threatens freedom of thought as well as freedom of religion. In Sweden, a preacher who had presented the Biblical teachings on the question of homosexuality received a prison sentence. This is just one sign of the gains that have been made by relativism as a kind of new ‘denomination’ that places restrictions on religious convictions and seeks to subordinate all religions to the super-dogma of relativism.” – Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), Without Roots: The West, Relativism, Christianity, Islam, p. 128.)
I also picked up this from one of the threads. I myself would never polute my eyes by visiting Rabble Babble, but the comment is worth posting because it gives the brainless left something to think about, presuming of course they have any brains left:
“Coming from a country where freedom of speech is severely restricted (Iran), I can tell you that “offensiveness” is main tool used there to restrict freedom of speech. Any criticism of the supreme leader (even implying that one of his policies may be wrong) is considered “Offensive to nation”, punishable by up to 3 year in prison. Believe me, you wouldn’t want to live in a country where offensiveness becomes the criteria to limit speech.”
