If you have a belief set, you must be ready to defend it.

If you believe that political correctness is a "good thing", you are wrong. Completely. And there is no way you can convince me otherwise. It doesn't matter to me if you feel that there are "so many different positions in this world. How can one position be correct and another be wrong?"

Political correctness is an answer to nullify the asking of the question. If you have a belief set, you had better be willing to stand up for your belief set, or else you should simply just stand aside. Your opinion doesn't matter if you don't think it's worth defending. It's not enough to simply hold an opinion and say, "If you disagree with me, fine. That's OK, too."

Intolerance, rudeness, not being very nice -- these are excuses to avoid the question, and not engage in the discussion. Political correctness has no place in truth or logic. Two opposing positions cannot simultaneously be true. If it hurts someone's feelings, that's just too bad.

What's interesting to me is that certain media can get a pass at being an affront to certain groups and get canned for being an affront to other groups. Why, for instance, is being an anti-Semite (or, for that matter, anti-gay, anti-black, anti-Muslim) more egregious than being anti-Christian? Nobody gets fired for saying anything negative against Christians.

It is time to take a stand, whatever your belief. All positions are NOT valid. Some people's views absolutely must be wrong. "How can there only be one correct belief in so many different belief sets?" The answer is simply the same as in science: Water is 2 parts Hydrogen, one part Oxygen. It is always thus, and has always been thus. Some people add sugar, others salt, but that doesn't change the fact that Water is H2O. While humanity, 'tolerance', mindsets, and belief sets change, there is no changing the essence of who God is.

Not believing in God because of God's unchanging nature is an exercise in silliness. God's intolerance to evil behaviors is unchanging, unwavering. If one believes in this, one must learn the evil behaviors that God abhors, and be willing to stand up for that belief set, and stand against those evil behaviors.
