Topsy Turvy

Yesterday I posted about the offense of being called “illegal immigrant” and last week I posted a link to The Coddling of the American Mind. On Thanksgiving Day I read Dr. Everett Piper: A Man Among Boys in which the president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University addressing a situation of a student complaining after a chapel service that “he felt 'victimized' by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13.”

These and other like incidents provide strong evidence of the overwhelmingly self-centered society we have become. We are so absorbed within ourselves that we claim the right to find nothing disagreeable and have no one disagree with us. Guilt is neither a culpability we possess nor a shame we should feel. We have turned the freedom of speech topsy turvy into a freedom from speech we don't like, and limited the universality of sin to the rare trait of those who disagree with us.

God help us!
