My Dear Child,
I write to you that you may not worry about being Politically Correct. In my day, it is politically incorrect to say anything that might be construed as sexist, racist, anti-semetic, etc. On the other hand, there are no complaints about insulting Christians, some political parties, etc. This is because Political Correctness is just that, Political. It changes often and will always be inconsistent because it isn’t based off Love and Truth. This is why it was “right” to insult the Japanese during WWII and why they insult Christians today. The world with its god of selfishness doesn’t care about respect, but about how it believes it can obtain and maintain power. Therefore it will do what it can to destroy the message of True Love.
So I write to you that you instead focus your energy on Love and Truth. When you are known by these two things, even those you supposedly offended may come to your defense. This happened recently when a white actress said a racist term. The media attacked her, but her black friend defended her, calling her family. Consider also that Jesus was never politically correct. Instead he spoke the Truth and teachings of Love.
If someone knows you are trying to speak the truth with no malice behind it, and they still take grave offense, then they don’t really care about respect. Instead, they seek entitlement, which is simply selfishness. Honest people want respect. If they know you care for them, then they will listen to the truth, even when it hurts.
The purpose of Freedom of Speech is that people may find the Truth to improve their lives, be able to express their concerns, and propose ideas. As long as it is not used to express hatred and destruction, then your words will never violate or abuse this important right. Society depends on the Freedom of Speech to be used correctly, not the political tool of censorship.
