This Is Why We March

Oct 7, 2013

The deliberate and callous killing of innocent unborn children is without question one of the gravest moral issues of our time – perhaps the most important one. In Australia some 100,000 babies are murdered each year, with 45-50 million slaughtered

Labor Lefties Never Learning

Oct 5, 2013

The Federal Labor Party has just faced its worst defeat in history, yet it seems to be carrying on as if it in fact won the election. So far out of touch is this mob that it actually believes that

Women Waking Up To Islam

Oct 2, 2013

Back in 2005 Phyllis Chesler wrote an important volume entitled The Death of Feminism: What’s Next in the Struggle for Women’s Freedom (Palgrave Macmillan). It was actually not just a book on feminism, but more specifically about feminism’s lack of

Mothers Trained To Kill

Sep 29, 2013

Imagine a society which actually insists on tutoring women in the fine arts of killing. And no, I am not referring to recruiting women into the military and training them how to become cold-blooded killing machines. What I am referring

Porn Wars

Sep 28, 2013

Just a few decades ago I and others were regularly warning about the dangers of pornography. But the almost universal response back then was ridicule, scorn, mockery and derision. We were said to be holy rollers, wowsers, killjoys and worse.

Our Sexual Wasteland

Sep 27, 2013

If a group of evil conspirators plotted to destroy the West, top on their list would be the plan to ravage it with everything sexual. Unleashing a tsunami of porn, sleaze and over-the-top sexuality would be a leading means by

A Religion of Demonic Rage

Sep 22, 2013

The only way you can describe a political ideology that encourages its followers to slaughter innocent Christians and non-Muslims wherever they are found is to say it comes straight from the very pits of hell. The two latest examples of

What Global Warming?

Sep 17, 2013

Real science is always provisional, open to correction, and tentative in its conclusions. Scientism on the other hand is an ideological stone – unmovable and inflexible. Thus real scientists will be open to evidence, while the true believers will allow

Atheism and Freedom

Sep 15, 2013

Jean-Paul Sartre the famous French atheist and novelist wrote a lot about freedom. As an existentialist philosopher, he celebrated raw freedom, and the ability to choose, regardless of what is chosen. Indeed, he once wrote that we are “condemned to

Why We Must Never Forget

Sep 11, 2013

Twelve years ago the most horrific attack on American home soil took place. It happened because of a political ideology known as Islam. The 3,000 innocent men, women and children who died that day must never be forgotten. And we

Vignettes from the Islam Wars

Sep 10, 2013

Islam is a fact of life, but the facts are not always good about Islam. Indeed, a political ideology which sees as its goal the overthrow of the West and the establishment of a universal caliphate is always going to

Taking On the Porno Plague

Sep 6, 2013

Dealing with porn at an ISP level became an issue again yesterday when Tony Abbott’s team mooted some sort of filtering system, perhaps along the lines of what England had recently embarked upon. Whether it is an opt in or

Syria, and Running on Emotion

Aug 31, 2013

I could have entitled this piece, “Let my people think” except I believe I have already used that one before. On a regular basis I find the need to write such articles. We expect those in the world to run

On Syria

Aug 29, 2013

One thing that can be said with some degree of certainty is that the situation in Syria is a mess. Then again, that largely describes things in all of the Middle East as well. This is one messed up part

Rudd Caught Out Again

Aug 27, 2013

We of course have come to expect politicians to play fast and loose with the truth, to be masters at equivocation, and to never answer a direct question, but it seems that Kevin Rudd has perfected all this – and

We Told You So

Aug 24, 2013

Warnings tend to fall on deaf ears. The lies of those who seek to destroy us are heard so often and so loudly that far too many people tend to believe them. Those sounding the alarm are dismissed as crackpots

“We Were Bored”

Aug 23, 2013

The tragic drive-by shooting of Australian Chris Lane as he was out jogging in Oklahoma this week raises all sorts of issues. It is a horrific killing and the family needs prayer big time. And already the left is trying

The Door Is Now Wide Open

Aug 22, 2013

Thanks to the homosexual militants, the door is now wide open to the promotion and eventual legalisation of just about every sexual perversion imaginable. The homosexual activists are not the only ones to blame here of course, but in their
