There was PC in the Kool-aid

I cannot believe I drank the kool-aid.

In the 1980's and 90's, it was the one tainted with political correctness. Everyone else was drinking it too. 

As an educator, I can tell you that teachers were drinking it by the gallonsful.

The end result of drinking too much of the sweet toxic waste of political correctness is that we are left with a sense of nausea and deep regret for the binge drinking of noxious sludge.

Today,we stand, mouths shut, while non-believers take aim at the faithful and the faith. I encounter anti-Catholic sentiment often as the Catholics get blamed for many of the perceived social ills of today. 

Just the other day, someone railed to me against the Catholics for trying to prevent Sunday shopping some seven years ago, in a small community, home to 82% Catholics!

I pointed out the futility of Sunday shopping, yet, it did not register. 

But, then again, I was speaking to a single mother of three small children whose fathers did not figure in their lives. Her notion of values and morals were not surprising. I would even go so far as too say they were largely typical of this woman's generation.

Therein lies the irony.

The kool-aid of the past decades created an environment where it became socially unacceptable to comment on the actions of others or hold them accountable, where personal choices with social and spiritual ramifications were not challenged, thus creating a free-for-all.

Yes, the kool-aid was drunk by many, but now the majority of Catholics are too green in the face to stand up for the one true faith.





Peace,
