    You are right. It is mainly the Western world that has taken this path. It is up to all of us to make our feelings known. i have been told that in the USA men are afraid to complement women, and vice versa, in case the are accised of sexual harrasment. Frightening.

    In South African it's just as bad. Everything must be politically correct, comply with affirmative action and somebody think you looked at them the wrong way you can land up in front of the constitutuanal court.

    PC is the black plague of our time.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    What I find just as bad as PC is the aggresive atheism/antitheism that people display these days. Attending a public high school, I find a lot of people who condemn all forms of religion, especially Christianity, without any reason other than that they want to have something to complain about.

    It reminds me of James Dean in Rebel Wihout a Cause, when he was asked what he was rebelling againsts. His reply " What have you got" If people do not have a cause they will invent one however stupid it may appear to the rest of us.
    It is a shame that we can not unite to fight just causes, but then we would never be able agree what exactly those were.

Her memory worldwide and self-sacrifice will outshine anything that the *enthroned pharoah hussein* in Baghdad-on-the-Potomac and his janissaries do.

    Without disagreeing at all with your well made points about the idiocy and evil nature of pc, I would like to point out that my president--despite his middle name--is a devout Christian. In America,during the last presidential election. I had enough of the mud slinging against this man because of his middle name. Enough already! Judge him on his political positions and values , and not on a cheap shot which his middle name affords those of a certain outlook. Talk about pc, ha.

    From what I can gather Steve Christianity is n a healthier state in America than it is over here. Prayers in school are almost unkown and lets face it, thats were it all starts. At least they honour the national anthem over there, more than we do here in case it offends non British people, which it does not.
