Some call Christianity a fairytale. Nonetheless, European and American Christians initiated the explosion of scientific knowledge we see today. Why? Christians believe God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33). Christians believe God created an orderly world. Therefore, Christian scientists strive to see the world as He created it, not as they might wish it or imagine it to be.
The Christian sets pride aside strives to see the world as God sees it. To view the world any other way is to not see what is really there.
Unfortunately, we live in an era that emphasizes self, not God. Therefore, many people insist upon what Conservatives call political correctness. That is, just because what they want to believe is “nice to believe,” many people insist that everyone believe what they want us to believe, and to get what they want they abuse the power of government.
America’s obsession with political correctness is undermining our security and our Constitution. So argues newly-initiated American citizen Ayaan Hirsi Ali in an article suggesting that the United States do more to screen out “political Islamists” from its pool of aspiring citizens.
Famous for her controversial book, Infidel, Ms. Ali knows better than most the potent influence that political Islam wields. Raised in a Muslim home and living in several Muslim dominated countries, she experienced the outworking of Islamic thought in her own life and found its subjugation of women to be intolerable. When she and her friend, Dutch filmmaker Theodore van Gogh, produced a film detailing the exploitation of women under Islam, they experienced the backlash firsthand. Van Gogh was murdered by Muslim avengers for daring to criticize Islam, and Ali was forced into hiding to avoid the same fate. (continued here)
