    Gotcha.

    It's like people proposing preborn can be killed. It's hate speech and they should be made non grata

    Yes but the public will never agree on what is biased. And all journalists are biased. I look for sources that give a lot of verifiable information, and do investigative journalism. Yet many people here would consider those sources biased since the journalists themselves are liberal and the facts presented support a liberal worldview.

    Character assassination? Not unheard of with the Left. Rather sophomoric in my opinion, attacking personally rather than addressing the issues raised in the OP.

    Well gee I dunno: Who decides what is hateful? You? Who would you trust to censor you for being hateful, perverted, dishonest, etc?

    Politically Privileged Pigmentation is when you can have lower grades, scores, aptitude, higher violence, etc, but be held less accountable and still gain access, promotions, etc.

    Would you support a law penalizing, with jail or fines, hate speech against the pre-born?

    Here is the issue. People are being accused of "hate speech" when you are simply stating facts that the offended simply doesn't like. Or, bringing to light a truthful issue that goes against their beliefs. Or, simply stating an opinion that the other person disagrees with.

    Freedom of speech is a very important freedom. If you start to censor people who are stating their opinion.. where does that leave evangelism and witnessing for God?

    I believe that, although we may not like what others are saying, if it's true or if it's them just stating their opinion... then, they have a right to state it.

    If they are trying to incite violence or injury on someone.. that's another story..

    Not to stir the pot, but, I'm having an issue with trying to figure out an example of "hate speech" against a pre-born.

    Hi and thanks for the response;. God bless you.

    Nihilism? Not sure what that has do with what I posted. However, the expectation of moral decline does in fact weaken expectation for widespread positive change in society. What we are expecting in terms of evangelism and positive change do in fact effect our motivation for improving society.

    I believe the Rapture event is a separate event from Christ's return. It is in fact God's desire to Rapture the Church in the midst of a last great awakening/revival. The "spoof" you speak of is not descriptive of my model.

    There will not be a restraining effect on evil in the world once the Church is gone and no longer interceding for the nations--and the 144,000 probably has no mandate to evangelize the world in general, as we do. So rapid support for the anti-Christ after the Church is taken is not surprising.

    All scripture that describe inevitable moral decline can be ascribed to that period of 7 or more years separating the Rapture and the Return. Some reference to decline concerning people falling away and propagating heresies has already occurred. Such apostasy is not representative of worldwide increasing evil as described by certain verses.

    A demographic of identified Christians is not necessarily representative of the genuiness of all such Christians. The Great Awakenings occurred as a response to Christian identified societies that were recognizably decaying morally.

    John Wesley specifically described the deplorable moral condition of his society, and it was not pretty. His society was turned around morally/spiritually. Such impressive reversals alone are contrary to the pre-Rapture inevitable decline claim.

    In terms of law and policy, we now have a President that has done more to further the Christian agenda in the US than any other US president in recent history. That of course is contrary to pre-Rapture inevitable decline claims.

    There are other examples. The Reformation; civil rights improvements in the 60's, etc. The evidence does in fact deny the Pre-Rapture inevitable decline claim.

    Eschatology impacts our evangelistic efforts and results. That is a fact.

    You're conflating issues. I believe you are presenting some straw-men as well.

    Sure, speak out. But Americans are split down the middle on who is “biased.”

    Another straw-man. Come on now.

    The evidence of real anti-Christian bias is there concerning the social media giants.

    I have pondered that. I am not a professional philosopher, but is there really any such thing as "hate speech." There is speech that contains anti-biblical hate, but to describe the entirety of a speech as "hate" seems illogical since speech is no more hate than hate is speech.

    As "hate" is now being so widely and seemingly inappropriately used, "hate" itself is considered solely within a negative connotation. But "hate" is not itself negative or evil, if it is otherwise, then God would not hate and neither would Scripture encourage Christians to hate certain things that God hates.

    Thinking individuals must work against efforts to redefine words, doing otherwise makes it increasingly difficult to describe true and biblical concepts.
