Subject: Political Correctness Musings

You know, political correctness means always having to say you're sorry. I'm just not into political correctness at all.
Allow me to see this differently, KathyT, and ask a willingess you read this as my committed expression, only.

When I think of political correctness it's of differences between terms on the surface. Numbers of groups and individuals have asked for a new view over time, whether it be Hispanic v. Latino or White v. Anglo and Indian v. Native American and more...

Witness the evolution within the church that it was Mormon, then LDS, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and then Church of Jesus Christ. Elder McConkie and others asked one thing and now, today, the church evolves to see and/or request another view. Politically correct? Who cares? If it's asked, then it's polite to answer (IMO).


I am not talking politically correct terms akin to Mormon versus LDS, or Miss versus Missus or Ms. It was a mere please on my part, a request that President Bush be no more mocked in this forum than President Hinckley. I find disagreements with each but do not wish to call Gordon Hinckley, "Mr. Twig," for the early reference about a tree in his book, Standing for Something.

Feel free to set standards for me as a poster. To be maintained by all here.
