There is an old saying that goes, “Tell a lie long enough and people will begin to believe it to be the truth.” In case you haven’t noticed, the wordsmiths of our modern culture are doing an outstanding job of making this a reality in our nation.
Today Americans are becoming increasingly indoctrinated with the delusion that every belief and opinion is of equal merit. In the name of tolerance, and being politically correct we are quickly becoming a nation that is forgetting how to distinguish reality from fiction, and the truth from a lie.
While I would certainly agree that everyone has a right to believe what he or she so chooses, society as a whole should not be coerced into accepting everyone’s opinion as deserving of equal value.
If you logically follow this modern theory of tolerance through to its ultimate conclusion you may not like what you find at the end of this so-called rainbow of enlightenment. If all opinions and beliefs are equal, then who is to say that Adolph Hitler was wrong for systematically murdering six million Jews during WWII? Of course anyone with a shred of moral fiber and intelligence would agree that this was wrong in every conceivable way.
Nevertheless today we seem to believe that all truth is relative. In other words something is true if I believe it to be so. This is absurd!
This thinking especially becomes a dilemma when one’s right to dissent begins to be eroded for the sake of making everyone feel accepted and comfortable.
We are reaping the fruit of moral relativism in this nation. The Postmodern man believes himself to be the highest moral authority, and answerable to no one but himself. We have thrown out the absolutes of the 10 Commandments, and the biblical world view which this nation was founded upon, and then find it surprising that we have rampant violence, corporate fraud, political corruption, and a myriad of other social ills
Freedom does not constitute anarchy. Many modern behaviors are morally wrong, and destructive to the fiber of our society. Gambling, pornography, sodomy, drug and alcohol abuse are just a few of the practices that have contributed to the downfall of many great empires throughout history.
“The only thing that we have learned from history is that we learn nothing from history.” President Woodrow Wilson
Wake up America, a skunk is a skunk, no matter what kind of clothes you dress it in.
