Tolerance? What Tolerance?

Apr 27, 2013

OK, time for my weekly round-up of the tolerance brigade. The trouble is, this really needs to be a daily round-up, with so many cases of anti-Christian bigotry and blatant bullying from the homosexual militia. This group, known for shouting

They Suffer and Die While We Party

Apr 11, 2013

Yet More Intolerance From the Tolerance Brigade

Mar 1, 2013

OK, so another week has passed, and plenty more examples of intolerance, bullying and persecution from the homosexual militants are waiting to be documented here. We know for certain now that while these folks cry the loudest about acceptance, tolerance

Clear Thinking on Islam and the Left

Why Geert Wilders is Right

Feb 19, 2013

With well over 30 venues and counting rejecting a visiting Dutch MP, it is getting very hard indeed to see how freedom and democracy have much of a leg to stand on in Australia. Things may already be too late.

Let’s Just Throw Them To the Lions

Feb 5, 2013

At least the ancient Romans were good at one thing: they did not waste all their undesirables and public enemies. No, they turned them into fodder for entertainment instead. Thus the masses were heartily entertained as Christians and other recalcitrants

When Vice Becomes Virtue

Feb 2, 2013
