Dear Brother – Was Jesus Political correct?
|Question Answered by Bro. Ignatius Mary, OMSM(r), CCD, LTh, DD, LNDC
No, Jesus was not poltically correct. Had he been the High Priest and Jewish leaders would not have asked Pilate to crucify Him.
In addition, Jesus said in Luke 12:51-53:
And in Matthew 10:34-39
Political correct language would be an abomination to Jesus because PC language obfuscates the truth of the matter. For example:
"sexually active" really means fornication. Sexual Active can appear attractive. Imagine a sex education class in 9th grade. The teacher says: "We know that 60% of the boys will FORNICATE by the time they are in 12th grade." That sounds a little harsh and unattractive. It sounds like, well, sin.
"can't help who you love" really is an excuse to commit fornication or adultery under the ruse that it is not possible to control oneself.
“terminate the pregnancy" really means to kill the baby.
"love child" at least in my day meant that the baby was not planned by the married couple.
But, "baby daddy or baby mother" do refer to children born out of wedlock.
Gay really means "joyous" not homosxual.
Words do evolve over time in any language, but these polticial correctisms are not an evolution of anything. They are, rather, a forced bastardization of the language for political-social reasons.
None of this is what Jesus did or approve. Jesus told the truth. That truth can be said diplomatically, but Jesus often was harsh in telling the truth — depends on the sitation.
I would recommend reading two sources:
Liberalism is a Sin (especially Chapter 20 to see how Un-PC the Saints were)
Three Secret Strategies of Satan (pdf file) You have our permission to print this essay and distribute to your students. It encapsulates Liberalism is Sin, and speaks directly to the phenomena today.
Jesus was not Politically Correct. He was not nice all the time. He was not a socialist as some morons suggest. He was not a 60s flower-child. He told the truth with no obfuscations or euphemisms. He told is plain and straight-forward.
Today, Jesus would be called a racist, sexist, homophobe, Nazis, hater.
There is a bumper sticker that says: TRUTH: the new hate speech
Indeed it is.
You go ahead and do what you stated:
God will richly bless you for your faithfulness to Truth and for teaching the next generation what they are not going to hear in the world — the Truth.
