“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

This has been going on since Isaiah wrote this in the eighth century B.C., and probably before. However, now in universities across the land it has reached pandemic proportions. And Christians are involved. It started out with euphemisms where bad actions (sins) were described in words that sounded not so bad: adultery = having an affair, promiscuous fornication = sleeping around or sexually active, male homosexual = gay.

These words that were once not so bad have now become good, and political correctness has made those people who are critical of homosexuals into the bad guys. In other words, evil has become good and good evil.
