Politically Correct?

There are some who rail at PC or Politically Correct conversation. One in particular says that America does not have time for PC. This is something that I have been thinking about for a long time. Most of the people I know who gripe about PC are not able to be PC. They say what ever come into their mind no matter who it hurts.

What does politically correct really mean? We do not really have a law that defines it and people are free to use what ever words they choose. So why all the anger? Perhaps it is because our society has been changing so much that using derogatory language has become unacceptable to most people?

PC can also mean Polite Conversation that cares about the feelings of others. Most people are aware that unkind words can hurt deeply so they refrain from using derogatory words based on gender, race, national origin or orientation. PC is all about being respectful of others no matter who they are.

My mother use to tell me that Jesus teaches us to love all God's children with our words and deeds. She was always PC because it was in her heart to love as Jesus loved.

Enough said!
