Whose Side Are You On Christian Leaders?

Aug 2, 2017

Confronting Christophobia in Queensland

Jul 28, 2017

The Ongoing War on Christianity in Australia

Jul 27, 2017

Hot on the heels of the ABC’s attack piece on evangelical Christians, we have yet more cases of anti-Christian bigotry. They also come from the loony left, and are just the latest of many relentless attacks on Christianity. The newest

Hands Off Our Children

Jul 7, 2017

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

Apr 5, 2017

Totalitarians and fascists have always sought to demonise their opponents, in part by marking them out from the “normal” majority. They are clearly identified one way or another as recalcitrants, and treated accordingly. Simply consider how Jews fared as the

Beer, Bibles, Bullies and Bigotry

Mar 15, 2017

Rainbow Big Brother is Here

Dec 6, 2016

As more than one wit has quipped, dystopian novels like Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four were not meant to be taken as instruction manuals. They were to remain in the fiction section, and not be reclassified as works
