Facebook Prisoner #9473782

Apr 18, 2019

Yes it was that dreaded message one usually expects every time one opens up Fascistbook: “This post goes against our Community Standards. It looks like something you posted doesn’t follow our Community Standards.” Yep, sure enough – another stint in

Facebook Gulag Yet Again!!

Oct 30, 2018

Yikes, this is just getting to be a rather ugly and tedious joke. Hot on the heels of my last 30-day prison stint by Facebook, they have chucked me in there again for yet another 30 days. What a pathetic

Out of Facebook Gulag – Again

Oct 12, 2018

I am now free from my month-long stint in the FB Gulag. This is getting to be all rather tedious and habitual, not just for me but for countless other conservatives and Christians. It keeps happening because FB is really

Facebook Jail – Yet Again!

Sep 12, 2018

Sometimes it can take me a little while to figure out what I should write about on CultureWatch. I do try to have at least one new article written and posted every day. Usually there is plenty of new news

Come Visit Me In Prison

Oct 7, 2017

I am not exactly in prison at the moment, but it kinda feels like it. You see, I am once again in Facebook jail. I have been banned by the FB thought police yet again. For daring to say something

Conservatives? What Conservatives?

May 2, 2019

It is never a pleasant thing to critique those who are supposed to be on your own side. I don’t really relish asking hard questions of, and offering critical commentary on, those who are supposed to be on my team

When Believers Turn On Their Own

Apr 19, 2019

One of the clearest teachings of Jesus has to do with our public witness: how nonbelievers will know that Christ has sent us. He said our unity and love for one another will be what convinces the world that we

Further Fallout from Christchurch

Mar 18, 2019

So predictable has been the fallout from the horrible New Zealand massacre that I could have penned this piece a week ago, or a month ago, or a year ago. Details may have changed, but the same underlying narrative remains.

Security, Walls and Common Sense

Jan 13, 2019

“Walls are immoral.” “Walls don’t work.” “Walls are unjust.” How often have you heard these and similar statements made by those on the left? Like so many moral platitudes, they may give warm fuzzy feelings to the ones making such

Morocco, Muslims, Murder and Media Mischief

Dec 28, 2018

As you might be aware, a week before Christmas two Scandinavian students were murdered while hiking in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. They were: 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland and 24-year-old Dane Louisa Vesterager Jespersen. The horrific deaths (including decapitation) were

Rainbow Repression: We Told You So

Oct 20, 2018

Evidently it is not good form to rub it in and say things like ‘we told you so’. But, well, we DID tell you so. I and others repeatedly sought to alert people to this. We warned you for years.

Social Media and the Ugly Greyness of Groupthink

Sep 13, 2018

Imagine a world without colour – only a thousand shades of grey. Imagine a world without music – only dull monotones. Imagine a world without poetry – only politicised prose. Imagine a world without genuine diversity – only compulsory conformity.

Sexual Abuse in the Churches

Aug 19, 2018

At the moment the public spotlight is on the Catholic Church, with revelations of what has transpired in Pennsylvania. In this latest case some 300 priests are said to have abused some 1,000 children over many decades. Before looking at

The Laughable and Lamentable Loony Left

Jul 27, 2018

The loons on the left are certifiable. They are unhinged, they are militant, and they are hate-filled. They are getting increasingly nutty, and increasingly militant and thuggish, with violence more and more replacing debate and reason. Just the other day
