Pope Francis opposes free speech rights

Angels listening to Pope Francis

Well, this has been quite a week for the left side of the political aisle, as they show their dislike for old-fashioned ideas like freedom and liberty. A few days ago, it was the former National Security Advisor for Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who stated his belief that freedom of speech shouldn’t apply to anyone who uses it to insult Islam. We also learned in a New York Times editorial that Christians in positions of leadership should be denied their rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion if they don’t embrace the radical homosexual agenda, and that their…

NY Times: Non-PC thoughts should be a crime

Homosexual hatred of Christians 2

A few days ago, I wrote how former cabinet member of the Jimmy Carter administration, National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, wanted to eliminate certain forms of free speech for offending Islam. In that piece, I also shared how acceptable this idea had become to the mainstream media. Well, the hits keep on coming. In a NY Times editorial that could have come out of George Orwell’s 1984 novel, they are advocating the idea that thoughts and opinions, if they are politically incorrect, be exempt from constitutional protection. Until last week, Kelvin Cochran was the chief of the Atlanta fire department. He wrote and self-published a book in 2013 for…

Want to end terrorism? Burn the Constitution!

Freedom of speech - Voltaire

In just the latest example of how far liberals are willing to go to make the world a “safer” place, we receive word that a former cabinet member of the Jimmy Carter administration wants to eliminate certain forms of free speech. In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski feels that the United States should reconsider whether satire should be protected free speech in light of the terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. “We have to take a look more closely at the nature of the so-called satire,” said Brzezinski. “I’ve not seen…

HarperCollins: Politically correct hatred of Jews and Israel

January 5, 2015

The use of politically correct speech has been used to change minds, but never geography. At least that used to be the case until HarperCollins came along with a new atlas specifically developed for schools in the Middle East. The publishing giant has been selling the atlas for months now, with the goal of providing students “in-depth coverage of the region and its issues.” The goals of this new atlas include: helping kids understand the “relationship between the social and physical environment, the region’s challenges (and) its socio-economic development.” Sounds noble, until you notice their decision to wipe Israel off the…

Merry Christmas from Ebenezer Scrooge

Merry Christmas from Ebenezer Scrooge

I think that my favorite Christmas story is the one we find about Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. It’s 19th Century London, and Ebenezer Scrooge is a bitter, greedy, cranky old man who hates people and Christmas. He exploits everyone he knows, from his employee, Bob Cratchit, to his only living relative, his nephew Fred. On Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, who, in his lifetime, was just as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now. Now damned, his appearance to Scrooge serves as a warning that he must change…
