If we lived in America, where Freedom of Speech reigned supreme, we would be so blessed. You see, America is no longer “Land of the Free,” as much as it is becoming “Land of the P.C.” Bravery, with the exception of some, is becoming a thing of the past, while “Safe Spaces,” threatens to pave the way for the future.
Well, one Baptist pastor is not about to let the powers-that-be get him down. “I’m not politically correct. I’ve never been politically correct, but I think I’m biblically correct, and that’s what matters to me,” said Pastor Harrington. “It isn’t against any particular denomination. It’s just the fact that I have taught and will continue to teach that I have one God, one way of salvation, and one Bible that’s holy.”
The hub-bub started when a bleeding heart drove by Belmont Drive Mission Baptist Church (Harringtopn’s flock) and saw a sign that read,
“Wake up Christians. Allah is not our God. Muhammad not greater than Jesus.”
“Only the Bible is God’s word. ‘Holy book.’ Koran is just another book.”
Imagine the intrusion into the safe space that is Eric Cohn’s feelings. Then there is Hood River Mayor, Paul Blackburn, another non-freedom of speech bigot who had this prophetic statement, “I was really annoyed and sad.” Aaaah, such a tender soul—blech. “I am annoyed that in this political season there’s a solid case of ugly going on. I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘oh, it’s okay to be a bigot now.’”
If it wasn’t for the fact that the Alahu Akbar crowd are the biggest, loudest and deadliest around the world, and in America (and they are—Never Forget 9/11), we would probably agree the church’s signage is a bit off-color.
Unfortunately, because of wusses like Cohn, Blackburn, Obama, and Congress, all rolling over and peeing the sandals of groups like CAIR, we don’t care! In fact, we chuckle.
When PC goes away and freedom makes a return, the free marketplace of “feelings” will self-correct.
Meaning, when the holier-than-thou among us, of all races, genders, creeds, and faiths get with the program of the First Amendment, common sense and common ground will be found.
