The Death Of Free Speech
Dolce & Gabbana: “The only family is the traditional one”.
Elton John called D&G’s comment “judgmental”.
Dolce replied: “I was talking about my personal view without judging other people’s choices and decisions”.
Signor Dolce is correct, and this final quote of his exposes the very root of the problem: The new politically correct ethic holds that a person cannot express a personal opinion without it being classified as a judgement, and that if the opinion differs on a cherished point, it is regarded as a hostile, ‘hating’, bigoted, invalid, and illegal judgement.
Thus, all dialogue is now reduced to a policy of “Do not openly disagree with me, or I will run crying to mommy (or the government) to come and punish you”. This of course is the philosophy of the kindergarten playground, yet it now passes for the modern definition of democracy, and it will (and already has) in fact led to the death of democracy, free speech, intellectual dialogue, progress, and civilisation itself. And all just to keep a few kinky fornicators happy, who are just 1.5% of the population. Men, are we going to stand for this? #BoycottEltonJohn

Prof Roger Trigg asks ‘Does ‘Equality’ Override Religious Freedom?’ https://youtu.be/-PGQeQsqHxI
“It is the preacher’s business to show wherein spiritual inability consists: not in the lack of soul faculties, but in the absence of any love for Him who is infinitely lovely. Far be it from us to extenuate the wicked unbelief of the unregenerate.”
“When Peter said, ‘Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out’ (Acts 3:19), He that is exalted to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins, sent His Spirit and Grace with the Word to work repentance and conversion in His own elect. And though they spoke the Word, promiscuously to all, yet He only spake it to His own. It was sent with the power of the Spirit. It never was sent with the Spirit of Faith to any but His own: ‘When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the Word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed’ (Acts 13:48)”.
Quotes above taken from a thought provoking article I found at this link:
Let all the earth fear the LORD. Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spake, and it was done, He commanded, and it stood fast. The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought, He maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
God’s word saves souls perfectly and powerfully, because God’s word is holy. Both preachers and hearers of the word will give or receive more benefit from it if they accord due reverence to it, as did the Holy Men of God (such as Isaiah) who were first tasked by Holy God with transcribing and proclaiming the Holy Word as they were moved by The Holy Ghost.
