Political correctness and cultural sensitivity ...
The politically correct care about cultural sensitivity. How should they respond to flogging, done in accordance with Sharia law? Or rather, how should we all respond, if it's important to be culturally sensitive and not offend.
Note: what's good for the goose is good for the gander. In other words, if we are not to offend and are to be culturally sensitive, the same goes for them.
I made the image up above because
I heard over and over that it's wrong to offend Islam. A few days ago, I heard that yet again. A thoughtful question occurred to me, as it has occurred to me before: If it's wrong to offend, why are we not requiring that Muslims stop offending us?
The message is especially for the politically correct. Because those are the people I hear most loudly calling for non-Muslims to be culturally sensitive. I hope the message gets through to at least a few of them.
Actually it's my sense that political correctness is a mask for fear. You can say you are being caring - just as a battered wife may say she is being caring to be sensitive to her abusive partner. Underneath that is a darker reality: fear.
All the best for all of us who truly believe in freedom and safety.
