As we watched the aftermath of the attacks in Brussels, which took scores of lives and left dozens wounded, I could not help but see this as an instance where Political Correctness trumped calling evil “Evil” and protecting the citizens of one’s country.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20
Just days before the terror attacks, the PM of Hungary gave an historic speech to his people about the so-called refugees. Here is part of this brave and amazing speech by PM Orban:
“It is forbidden to point out that this is not an accidental and unintentional chain of consequences, but a pre-planned and orchestrated operation; a mass of people directed toward us. It is forbidden to say that in Brussels they are concocting schemes to transport foreigners here as quickly as possible and to settle them here among us. It is forbidden to point out that the purpose of settling people here is to reshape the religious and cultural landscape of Europe, and to reengineer its ethnic foundations — thereby eliminating the last barrier to internationalism: the nation-states.” – source (Emphasis mine)

It seems that the leaders of Belgium prefer to err on the side of political correctness. How ironic that these deadly and cowardly attacks should happen so soon after PM Orban was sounding the alarm, not only to his own people, but certainly to the entire world!
Now, it is being revealed that the government of Belgium had credible intel that the attack at their airport was being planned. They did nothing. Even Erdogen of Turkey warned Belgium. That warning fell on deaf and politically correct ears.
Why is this happening?
I believe that much of the world is still convinced that we are not at war with Islam. The Qur’an and the Hadith clearly articulate “Killing the infidels” Any person can go online and look at both books in English. There is no gray area. Mohammad’s plan and command to his people was to dominate all nations. Islam is not truly a “religion” as much as it is a totalitarian system of government. The idea that this is a religion lends it credence and acceptability in the eyes of many lacking discernment.
I also believe that many are afraid but also naive. They may believe that if they give the Muslim jihadists “good press” and say that Islam is not a part of the killing, that they will be spared of the terror. Nothing is further from the truth – and the Brussel’s terror attacks clearly support this.
The Liberals are duped
As I read and watch the news, it is glaringly apparent that those stating that ISIS and Islam have nothing in common, are the liberal news sites and media. Again, I think that these people feel that the terrorists will be more lenient on them. This is absolutely untrue! They are INFIDELS, and that is all these Islamic terrorists see. They would cut off the heads of the most liberal of news reporters as they would anyone from Fox News or Breitbart or any of the Conservative media.
From Consideration to Apostasy
Are you conducting yourself appropriately in a politically correct world? Will one slip of the tongue destroy your career? Will the wrong action or jest result in an arrest? While it is true we need to measure the impact of our words and actions and speak kindly and lovingly, people are flawed and make innocent mistakes.
Political correctness has been around for a while. I know you’ve heard of it. Various groups have used it to identify those failing to align with their political views of right thinking. Some earlier and milder forms of political correctness began with the English language. A word like “man” used in a prefix or suffix is no longer acceptable. For instance, the word mankind is now humankind; manhole is maintenance hole; chairman is chairperson; salesman is salesperson; handyman is handyperson and on ad infinitum.
A few years ago another more troubling example of political correctness was cited by Rhian Hughes who wrote, “The *BBC has dropped the use of the terms Before Christ (BC) and Anno Domini (AD) on one of their programs and decided that the terms ‘Before Common Era’ and ‘Common Era’ are more appropriate.”  The idea that Christ should be the measure of cataloging historical events on a time chart was obviously offensive to some people.
Today, a more ominous and recent example of political correctness occurred when Brendan Eich was forced to resign as CEO from Mozilla. A politically correct group on social media learned Eich had donated money to Proposition 8 (a ban on gay marriage in California) six years earlier. The group launched a social media campaign against Mozilla ending in Brendan’s resignation. From what I’ve been able to glean, Eich was exercising his constitutional right to donate to a political cause, which was then judged by a social media group as evil and a danger to society.
A seriously more ominous example of political correctness is its power to isolate and demonize anyone who does not agree with a group’s faith values. During Pope Francis’ New Year address he said, “We belong to the same human family and we share a common destiny. This brings a responsibility for each to work so that the world becomes a community of brothers.” 
On unity and the need for inclusiveness, the Pope talked about his hope for a gospel of brotherhood to break down the barriers of division…that there is indeed the need for everyone to join in commitment to build a global society that is fair, equal, and united. While I agree we all need to get along, I sense this new gospel of brotherhood will not look kindly upon those adhering to the Gospel of exclusiveness; that is, we do not all worship the same God.
As Dr. David R. Reagan warns:
The most popular apostasy in Christendom today is the teaching that God has revealed Himself in many different ways to diverse cultures and that, therefore, all religions worship the same god, but just use different names. From this viewpoint, the Allah of Islam is the same as the Yahweh of Judaism and both are the same as the Krishna of Hinduism. The natural conclusion that is drawn from this apostate idea is that there are many different paths to God, Jesus being only one of them. 
Jesus steadfastly rebuked this widely embraced viewpoint when he said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6).”
To suggest Jesus is the only way to salvation places the genuine believer on the outside looking in. Defending John 14:6 will be looked upon by the world (and compromising faiths) as offensive because no opinion (different from theirs) will be tolerated.
Hal Lindsey writes:
The real goal of political correctness is to convince us that all ideas and beliefs are of equal validity. No idea or belief is greater or truer than any other idea or belief. And that is the danger. If Satan can convince people that all ideas are equal, then he can convince them that anyone who promotes anything that is “exclusive” or “better” is evil and a menace to society. In that way, Satan can destroy our willingness to accept that there may be some ideas and beliefs that really are better than others — because they are true and wholesome and beneficial. 
God himself said, “For your thoughts are not My thoughts (Isaiah 55:8).” Without question, God’s thoughtful ways are higher and better than our ways; but, the world will not hear of it! God’s way of living goes against the grain of political correctness and herein the disquieting irony of living in a world where biblical truth is no longer tolerated (1 Corinthians 2:14).
Something the government seems eager to prove:
The mention of God’s name and anything remotely religious has become taboo in government, the courts, and education. Anything remotely religious in nature is subject to being removed from public property — anything remotely Christian, that is. The exceptions to this rule are Islamic, far Eastern, Native, and Pagan representations. Not only can God not be credited with creation or intervention in the affairs of man — the very mention of the existence of God is prohibited. 
Of course, none of this should be surprising to any of us. Charles Darwin never intended for the Theory of Evolution to replace the Bible; but when the seeds of his theory took root in the minds of godless men, it took on a life of its own. Although political correctness may have begun with good intentions, it has now devolved to take on a depraved life of its own.
In closing, God is exclusive (Isaiah 6:3). Believers following the narrow path of morality outlined in the Bible will never find a welcome mat at the doorway of political correctness. Believers will never be accepted by those who hate and rage and seek to silence messengers of the Gospel. Our life is in Christ and Jesus’ exclusive claim to be the great I AM stands eternally unyielding (John 6:51, John 8:12, 23, 58, John 10:9, 11; John 14:6; John 15:1). – source
Instead of being Politically Correct, we must be Biblically Correct!
Stay in prayer and look to the only One who keeps us safe
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.”
Brethren, where else are we to go? He alone is the Creator of the Universe. He alone established the heavens and the earth. He alone is our Father in heaven. He alone is in control.
He alone loves us with an everlasting love.
