In my humble opinion scripture foretold of the current times before us all, when many would be lovers of themselves, offended in some way, thus granting themselves a grievance license to seek whatever they desire from the pocket or property of another.
(2 Timothy 3:2, Acts 5:29, Luke 6:26)

Simply stated, this political correctness deception is a silencing tool of the evil one wielded by his incessant caterwauling secular minions to steal liberties and anything else of value from any free born people through fear, intimidation and coercion.
(2 Timothy 3:13, Ephesians 5:7)

Political correctness installs its subjective version of truth in the court of public opinion, not by distilling objective truth. It's root is to implant a certain idea, belief, or behavior as the only acceptable course of action or thought, to the exclusion of any other common sense means.(2 Timothy 3:8)

Political correctness attacks its opponents, it does not debate them, thus it's always on the offensive seeking to demonize it's opponents and make them explain their wrongly held opinions. To conceal it's political nature, political correctness relies on deceptive "correctness" to conceal it.(Titus 1:11)

To do this, it always projects that all it's methods and conclusions were scientific and not political, but true science is about constantly offering and testing new hypotheses, not inflicting one through intimidation or coercion. (Galatians 5:13)

The goal of true science is never to attempt to end debate, as the debate is never truly over; but for political correctness the debate is always over, with it's self anointed ministers of tolerance seeking to destroy any who would dare hold thoughts not permitted. And for their high crimes of unbelieving, these 'bigoted flat Earth people' must lose their private businesses, any employment and generally be shunned as lepers from polite society.
(2 Thessalonians 1:4)

I submit political correctness is about raw power gotten by any means via a totalitarian political structure, and as such all freedom loving people should be alert to the threat it is and on guard for the deceptions that will always accompany it.(Philippians 1:28) (Ephesians 4:4)

In the Lord's freedom and liberties surrendering nothing...........warrior on.

Andy  3 photo Andy Mangus I am a Christian since October 1979 & devoted truth seeker.
In my humble opinion, I most emphatically state this: Absolutely NOT! And, In my humble opinion as a student of God's Word since I was about 4, my short answer to this issue I submit: 'Political Correctness' is simply 'the latest, the greatest, the most offensive, the most modern and the most "in your face" tool being imposed on citizens "OF" or "IN" the world. (Christians, as a child of God, as the Bible tells us, "are IN the world, not OF this world", for OUR home is to be with Him in Heaven.) {see 1 John 4:5, John 15:19, John 18:36} What do I mean by this statement? Well, the Bible tells us that "Satan roams about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour". Well, how and what tools, techniques, methods of influence does he enact in his never-ending onslaught to cause evil, deceit and destruction? The answer to me is obvious. And, one of his most recent 'tools' or techniques' methods is this so called "political correctness" nonsense, which is and has been causing all kinds of discourse! To me, it is one of Satan's greatest 'modern-day' deceptions that began to take hold within just a few years ago!

The very basic command and what I call 'our marching orders' given in scripture "to go ye into all the world, witnessing and telling others about the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord and Savior" (Mark 16:15), is the central objective of Satan to prevent, dissuade or destroy in the lives of Christians if he can do so using any means necessary! To me, this 'tool' of political correctness is one of his most successful. And, Satan's major goal is to silence you, me and every other Christian! 

I personally, will not be dissuaded nor succumb nor 'bow down' to "Political Correctness" and take the challenge of the Lord's battlefield as a duty to "go forth and be a valiant Christian soldier for the Holy, Blessed name of Jesus Christ, MY Lord and Savior!" 

As the old gospel hymn says, "Onward Christian soldier, onward into war!...may God's strength always be with you; onward into battle, so that victory may be won!" 

One of the earliest in my example is when prayer was taken/removed from being allowed in public schools! This has been just the beginning of what is now becoming what I call a "societal disgrace" in America today!

I personally, will NOT nor will I ever cower or bow down in order to succumb to "Political Correctness"! I will always stand strong in the face of adversity; always being the best "Soldier for Christ" I can possibly be!

"Praise God we have a Savior and His name is Jesus Christ!"

If the minister or preacher is preaching the true gospel, then he must be preaching offensively against sin. We can see very plainly in the offensiveness of the gospel by the hatetred the Sodomites have for Christians. Therefore if a preacher is not preaching offensively he is not preaching the same gospel as Jesus Christ which is His sword of truth and righteousness.
