Reader comment on: The Erosion of Free Speech

Submitted by Al Grunwell, May 3, 2015 18:08

The last paragraph perfectly sums up the tragedy the enlightened world faces: political correctness and shari'a law. Western intellectualism has developed the Ten Commandments delivered by God to Moses into a law system that has maintained a moral society until around the 1960's. That is when political correctness became a growing threat to truth. Satan is the father of lies, so it should be no surprise that he is behind the rationale of political correctness. Shari'a is a system of laws that Islam has developed to govern themselves, and has no right to supersede laws developed by nations consisting of a variety of religions and philosophies. How true the author's comment: "How tragic if a senseless fear causes us to do this to ourselves."
