I was listening to the news on the car radio as I was driving home when the reporter referred to a certain person's (who shall remain unnamed) point of view (which happened to be Scriptural) as being extremely "controversial" and then went on to infer that this person (and anyone else who held to his viewpoint) was alone and in the minority in today's society. The man had stood up for values which for thousands of years until these days had been not only applauded, but formed the basis for a sound civilization. Now he was being demonized as intolerant, and his views labeled as "controversial". So, my question is - Why is "Truth" now considered to be so "controversial"? Is it "Inconvenient"? Just asking?
