The Tyranny of Political Correctness

Center party populist Helen Törnqvist has gone out with a barely coherent debate article stating that priests who refuse to marry gay couples are breaking the law and should not be “allowed”.

What worries me is this constant infringement on our freedoms. Step by step we are moving backwards in time to when deviant opinions and behavior was punished harshly by society. The only difference is that this time around, the socialists and social-liberals are the ones who decide what is right and what is wrong, rather than the king’s own national church.

How far will this go? We are already punishing uncomfortable views on religion, race, sexual orientation, and gender with jail. Is the same going to be applied to age? How about politics? The environment?

It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if we in five to ten years have laws in this country where questioning climate change or decrying someone for being a socialist will result in hefty fines.

Say no evil, or the government will get you!

  1. Totally agree, the ones who should be prohibited to enter a church
    are all the politicians, even less any say on how the church should act. Sweden is probably the only country outside communist Russia where you have to prostitute yourself to become a priest.

  2. Sweden and Europe is going down the drain. In a generation or two it’ll all be Eurabia…

  3. Sorry mate, no such thing as PC. That’s just an underhand way of avoiding having to actually debate one’s point: you just slap the sticker on and argument won. If you want to make a point, make the _point_ don’t just use buzzwords.

    And the whole “social-liberal paradigm” paranoia is ridiculous: society and values have been drifiting to the right since the 80’s

  4. Why should politicians decide how a priest interprets the bible. It actually says “if man lays with another man he should die”, of course the bible is a stupid book but that´s beside the point. Since the state is separated from the church leave that decision to them.
