The prefix “trans” means to go beyond, or over, or across. Today the transgender movement is having a great run at going well beyond the truth. And this is primarily being done by not allowing any debate on the issue.
We hear a lot nowadays about certain sorts of people being labelled “provocative”. Almost always it is heard on the leftist mainstream media, and almost always it refers to conservatives, be they religious or non-religious conservatives.
A half century ago America and much of the West was engulfed in the counterculture movement. It had other names, such as the hippy movement, the Woodstock generation, the cultural revolution, the peace and love generation, and the radical 60s.
History is full of surprises. That includes the big picture as well as the finer details. Nations can come and go. Nations can change. Sure, they often change for the worse, and many will disappear into oblivion. But sometimes a
Anyone who follows American politics knows how important it is to get the right sort of president in, because – among other things – he is the one who nominates new Supreme Court of the United States’ justices when one
I have used the phrase “the death of the West” or something like it plenty of times now. And for good reason: the West has been in deep decline for decades now, and one wonders if this is reversible. It
I told an audience yesterday morning that a good definition of truth is “that which corresponds to reality”. If there is a major mismatch between what you say and the way the world actually works, you might not be speaking
There is nothing wrong with being concerned about the wellbeing of your neighbour. But there is plenty wrong in thinking that more Big Government is the answer. Plenty of the social justice warriors (SJWs) on the Left never lift a
Life in this world is filled with tears. And if this life was all there was, then this would be terribly tragic indeed. But the Christian believes there is much more than this life, and that one day all tears
Back in 1991 I wrote these words: “No matter how caring and loving, a surrogate care-giver can never replace a mother – or father – in providing security, love and a sense of self-worth to young children. Yet in a
Reading like a Who’s Who of Hollywood actresses, the number of women who have come forward and claimed that they were raped or sexually assaulted and harassed by film producer Harvey Weinstein is now well over 60 and still climbing.
Europe is in a real bad way. Secularism, immorality, porous borders, an inability to understand Islam for what it is, the rapid decline of Christianity, a loss of purpose and identity – these and other factors have resulted in a
I have plenty of sparring partners in the culture wars, but those I often find to be the most distasteful and antagonistic are radical libertarians who also claim to be conservatives and Christians. Um, no, you cannot be both, as
It was inevitable: the left warring against itself. When you have a whacko ideology filled with so much PC craziness and so many things that you can get offended by, sooner or later there was going to emerge some jarring
The announcement by US President Donald Trump that transsexuals will not be able to serve in the US military has had all the expected hysterical reactions from the lunar left. Democrats, leftists and activists are denouncing Trump and predicting the
The push to legalise euthanasia is never ending, and Victoria is one of a number of Australian states hard at it. Just the other day the Ministerial Advisory Panel on Voluntary Assisted Dying released its final report on the issue.
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
It was the renowned journalist Malcolm Muggeridge who used to speak about the “great liberal death wish”. There were various versions of this given, either as an essay or a talk. Here is a short part of one such version:
