Whose Side Are You On Anyway?

Jul 21, 2017

We have all seen it and experienced it: people who claim to be Christians who attack and criticise other Christians, all the while defending and promoting manifestly anti-Christian ideas, practices, organisations, agendas and individuals. They will actually side with the

The Christophobic ABC Strikes Again

Jul 20, 2017

Never one to let a good chance to attack Christians and tell porkies about Christianity slip away, “our” taxpayer-funded ABC has been at it again. Of course they make a living (at our expense) in doing this. I have lost

[Re]Affirming the Things that Matter

Two articles that have appeared recently, and one speech just delivered, all speak to the things that matter, and the need to stop the rot. The articles come from Australian journalists while the speech comes from an overseas world leader.

For over three decades now I have been warning about the militant homosexual agenda. I have written several books on this and hundreds of articles. I have spoken around Australia and overseas seeking to alert parents especially about how our
