RealClearPolitics - Commentary - Free Speech on the Run in the West by John Leo: "In Canada, a teacher drew a suspension for a letter to a newspaper arguing that homosexuality is not a fixed orientation, but a condition that can be treated. He was not accused of discrimination, merely of expressing thoughts that the state defines as improper. Another Canadian newspaper was fined 4,500 Canadian dollars for printing an ad giving the citations -- but not the text -- of four biblical quotations against homosexuality. As David Bernstein writes in his book 'You Can't Say That!': 'It has apparently become illegal in Canada to advocate traditional Christian opposition to homosexual sex.'"

The ultimate target of all politically correct movement, multiculturalism if you will, is the Bible. The reason: the Bible carries its own internal proof of authority and its very own authentication as the Word of God. Multiculturalism denies that there is such a thing as self-evident truth, or truth that evidences itself. The very idea of self-evident truth is a biblical, Christian idea that is based upon the fact that the world is God's creation and carries its own imprimatur of authenticity. If there are many gods [the basic premise of multiculturalsim] then truth resides only in the eye of the beholder--worshippers of this god see truth this way; worshippers of that god see truth that way.

This is the reason why modern liberal "Christians" have no defense against the growing threat of radical Islam. They have nothing in their spiritual or intellectual arsenal to draw on. But how do you accept someone's religious view if at the foundation of that religious view is that you must be killed? As an uncle of mine used to say, "I wouldn't trust that guy, even if he was on my side."
