In April the CEO of Mozilla, Brandan Eich, was pressured to resign over his donation to an anti-same-sex marriage campaign. Brandan is one of the co-founders of the Mozilla project and one can only assume has made many valuable contributions to the organization, yet the morally bankrupt employees and other users of foxfire that expressed outrage over the donation triggered his resignation.
While foxfire has been my favorite web browser, this move is so offensive to me that I am changing to another browser. I do wonder where the outrage from supporters on the moral majority are to counteract this assault on Brandan’s personal freedom. This is just an example of the decay taking place in our country.
This disease being spread throughout our country, primarily on our college campus is called “Political Correctness.” While the term began as a joke in a comic strip, it now represent nothing pertaining to humor. It is a powerful term used to police our speech.
Putting the Insane in Charge of the Asylum
This cultural phenomena promotes a tolerance toward things that are morally repugnant to a society that has its roots in biblical guidelines. While our Founding Fathers gave us the formula for strength and greatness as nation, many current politicians and morally deprived minds drive fear into the hearts of morally upright thinking and behavior.
What’s the solution?
There is a two-step process that should be considered. Those with a clear moral compass that points true north need to seek to live a life that is exemplary of good and right. While that is a solid start, life is not lived in a vacuum. We need to be bold, stand up and voice our objection to the moral bankruptcy sweeping our country. We need to vote for leadership that will have the backbone and steady hand to help rebuild the decay that has taken place on this front.
