Thanks.
I understand. I don't think that there is a soul alive that hasn't made an offensive comment, whether intentional or not.

You must admit. The rainbow flag is pretty ugly. The jolly roger would be more appropriate.

Now that could be construed as offensive.
And I laughed about it.
So I am offensive too.

That's because you understand the difference between a joke and an insult.

In a pluralist society, your view is still valid.

You just have to get used to the fact it's no longer the dominant one is all.

Live and let live and do so in humility and without selfishness is the new mantra.

Racism and bigotry towards homosexuals was always wrong. These things are being put right. Be proud of the fact you love Jesus, love your country, be thankful that you were born with all of the privileges of being white, male and heterosexual.

Do not however use any of these things as weapons for hate towards minorities. They are human beings too and as such equals.

They always were.

Government buildings really shouldn't be taking ANY sides in the national PC discourse.

You aren't alone. Many people feel the same way. I agree, too, that it seems we are int eh last days, and know what you mean about losing people.

All we can do is share as much as we are able, and then leave the rest to God. Stay true to what you believe, and do what you can, and let the rest go.

It isn't easy, I know. The country is not the same as it used to be, and it isn't better. Looking back on how things were when I was younger, with all of the changes, it's like we were transported to some other place. America isn't the same.

Hang in there. We have front row seats for some of the most interesting prophecies around.

Hah! I gave you a star for that then your eyes blinked as if to say thank you. I had not noticed them blinking before. I had to double check there and thought I had overdosed on ATS, Cool!

Are you willing to hide your Heterosexuality (assuming you are) and get rid of Heterosexuality in everyday life, lets get Heterosexuality off TV, lets not teach kids about Heterosexuality because that is pushing the Straight Agenda on America's Children.. right?

This PC buzzword stuff is getting old, you still have the Freedom to say whatever you want, it's others peoples right to be offended and call you out on it... the world is evolving and people are realizing that you can be sensitive towards other peoples feelings and still have your Freedoms... being hateful does not Demonstrate "Freedom" and if you need Hate to demonstrate your Freedoms than i'm sorry but you will never be happy and always be offended.. which is what you get mad at other people for right.. being offended

I just wonder how long it will be before it's politically incorrect to object to political correctness.
Are we there yet?

I'm disgusted by much of what goes on in America.

The flagrant abuse of power by the federal government.

The whiny self-entitlement of the left.

The demonization of success, individuality, morality, ethics and values.

America is becoming increasingly like 1920's Germany,there are many social ills and ails,eventually a false Messiah comes and offers a sign or symbol for the 'silent majority' to focus their hate on as a cause for all their problems pray thats not your community because theres some very scary people like Walker coming down the pipe.

Well the ones you agree with, those are not all set in stone.

So maybe we are tired of the rights self absorption and them thinking the way they see every thing is the end all way it needs to be seen.

I am a retro metro hetero lesbian trapped in a man's body.
I gotta say, it can be fun being me.

* I am a pretty crappy lesbian though, I had to come back and fix the spelling.... couldn't even spell lebian right.
Oh, it was autocorrecting.
I take it back, I am an awesome lesbian.

Yeah.
I hit on a woman in a bar once and she told me she was a lesbian.
I said "Whoo Hoo! We are in luck."
She wasn't really a lesbian.
