Seventy-seven people joined us for our “Explore the Evidence” Community Breakfast on March 19 at the Wayzata Country Club. We investigated the political correctness movement (Bias-Free Language) through the topic “America Reshaped: The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Political Correctness.” It was especially challenging for everyone to make it safely to the breakfast following the surprise morning snow storm!
Executive director Joe Komarek intentionally made himself a scapegoat by using several “politically incorrect” terms during his opening remarks, and allowed the audience to take him to task for his numerous faux pas. It was all in good fun, and they were very gracious toward Joe in their corrections. For the purpose of illustration, Joe employed outdated terminology, including:
|Politically IN-correct||Politically Correct|
|Elderly or Seniors||People of Advanced Age|
|Mother/Father||Parent One/Parent Two|
|Easter Eggs||Spring Spheres|
Robert D. Shadley (Major General, US Army, retired) discussed the challenges he faced investigating the military sex scandal in the 1990s. He realized his pursuit of truth, not political correctness, was not a popular choice.
Apologist and global strategist Reuben David offered his perspective having come from outside the United States, and presented evidence which indicates that the reshaping of America is, indeed, taking place.

Our next community breakfast, “Digging for the Truth,” will be held this fall. Watch for updates. Together we will investigate scribal history and archaeology as we explore evidence for the reliability of the Bible found in digs around the Holy Land. Since this session includes an interactive workshop, consider bringing a child or young person with you. We hope to see you there.
Here are some video highlights from “America Reshaped: the Good, Bad, and Ugly of Political Correctness.”
