There is the “diversity is our strength” trope that seems pervasive in modern society.
Two things about that are certainly true. First, diversity in and of itself is neither a strength nor a weakness. Yes, having people from many different cultures, ethnicities, and skill sets offers the possibility of getting the best of everything. But no, if those differing people cannot come together around a single moral tradition or at least a unified set of behavioral standards, then diversity will have a negative effect. And quite possibly, a dramatically negative effect.

I'll try to remember that the next time I visit my murdered sister's grave. Her murderer only wanted her cash and car. Her life insurance policies provided absolutely zero protection.— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) November 26, 2019

Do you consider the USMCA to be superior to NAFTA?— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) November 15, 2019
Why or why not?
FTA: "MAPS 4 comprises 16 projects heavily weighted toward addressing social ills such as untreated mental illness, entanglements in the criminal justice system for low-level offenders living in poverty, and homelessness."— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) October 14, 2019
With a new Mayor, City Mgr, & Police Chief, not only is the OKC Police Dept. hearing accusations of going soft on thugs, they appear to have one working in the dept. One officer allegedly told GF" I's gonna kill you tonight, your white privilege is over"— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) September 7, 2019
Oklahoma City has a "1% for Art Ordinance" which requires at least 1% of the construction budget for every public project to be spent on public art.
Is this an unnecessary taxpayer burden that only could be appreciated by a California politician such as Gavin Newsom, or is it the highest and best use of precious taxpayer dollars?
As an example, MAPS 4 has budgeted $38 million for an animal shelter. Why in the world does it make responsible economic sense to require that $380,000 of taxpayer money be expended on artwork for an animal shelter?
If accurate, why wouldn't profit-minded businesses ONLY hire black women in order to keep labor costs down and improve the bottom line?— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) August 22, 2019
Frustration in OKC continues to bubble up after the election of Liberal Mayor David Holt & appointments of Liberal City Mgr, Craig Freeman, & Liberal Police Chief Wade Gourley. Will OKC become another Baltimore under their leadership? Hopefully, I am wrong. pic.twitter.com/akgHaMeyCr— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) July 31, 2019
I would submit that the very tone of all your complaining invites a response. Perhaps if you had something positive to say about our country every now and then, you might find people will take you a little more seriously.— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) June 6, 2019
What tangible improvement should the avg. OKC resident expect in their life as a result of creating a Diversity Officer position?— Greg Karnes (@realGregKarnes) May 1, 2019
Come on back weatherman Gary England. After all the kind words you said of me, what could I have possibly said to get on your bad side? Am I to conclude that you have gone over to the dark side and become a snowflake ?? Might weather forecasters have the thinnest skin of any creatures walking Planet Earth today, or could the "Twitter Gods" be engaging in some "tomfoolery" with my account ??

Despite being blocked, with an assist from Julian Assange, I have been able to tap into Weatherman England’s Super-Secret Twitter feed he desires to be hidden from my view:
Were I not blocked; I would add the following comments to Weatherman England’s Super-Secret Twitter feed:
True followers of Jesus Christ, whose salvation is based entirely upon God’s Word, cannot endorse same-sex marriage, regardless of what our President, the Congress, the Supreme Court, the media or the latest Gallup poll says about the matter. This moral issue has been settled by God Himself and is not subject to man-made revisions or modifications. In the end, I would rather be on the wrong side of public opinion than on the wrong side of Almighty God who established the standard of living for the world He created. Marriage is a biblically moral issue, not a political or theological one.
