Steynian 200

“It is no accident (as the Marxists used to say) that political correctness should flourish most in those countries in which libertinism has become an ideology; or that in countries in which the literary use of foul language is taken as a sign of liberation from stifling convention, certain words and thoughts are simply not allowed to be expressed. For what is political correctness except an attempt to purify the human heart by making unworthy thoughts literally inexpressible?”

FreeSpeechers

“.. [F]or a prominent churchman to concede publicly that some Muslims find this different belief ‘offensive’ (rather than simply incorrect) is a bad mistake. It somehow gives respectability to the notion that the mere expression (or indeed existence) of a belief is in itself ‘offensive’ to those who feel a different way. In an age where “offense” is the gateway to censorship that’s a poisonous idea that needs no encouragement. That the Archbishop of Canterbury can, however indirectly, endorse it reminds us yet again of the noxiousness of ‘Sharia’ Williams. Couldn’t some monastery take this overpromoted parson in and give him useful job to do? There must be some vegetable gardens that need tending.”
