Anti-Christian Bigotry on Campus

Feb 17, 2011

There used to be a time when universities were known for being bastions of freedom of speech in which openness to ideas and genuine intellectual inquiry were affirmed. But that is no longer the case at many Western campuses. Instead

Esther and Providence

Feb 6, 2011

The Old Testament book of Esther is much loved by many, especially by Jewish readers. For in it we learn about the remarkable preservation of the Jewish people. It is an altogether providential occurrence, although rather oddly, God never gets

Why Does The Age Hate Christianity?

Dec 20, 2010

Leave it to the secular militants at the Melbourne Age to feature not one but two opinion pieces at Christmas time by atheists telling us we don’t need Jesus to enjoy Christmas! Imagine that. One piece is just not enough,

Continuing Christian Persecution

Dec 2, 2010

Perhaps most Australian and Western Christians would not have known it, but Sunday November 14 was the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Hopefully some churches did take part in this. The good news is that we set

More PC Mischief and Mayhem

Nov 11, 2010

Whenever the forces of political correctness and a morally bankrupt mainstream media come together, you know there is going to be trouble, big time. Indeed, simply get a lesbian couple screaming ‘discrimination’ and you have created a media firestorm. The

More Western Decline: London the New Mecca

Oct 28, 2010

The Islamification of the UK and Europe is well under way. Creeping sharia continues unabated, and the indicators of this transformation are everywhere to be found. The most recent was this headline from the Daily Mail: “Mohammed is now the

More Attacks on Our Christian Freedoms

Oct 23, 2010

With almost monotonous regularity I document on this site how the homosexual activists and their PC supporters are working overtime to silence anyone who dares to withstand their agenda to remake society in their own image. Governments around the Western

FB is Now PC – Big Time

Oct 23, 2010

The social networking web program Facebook has decided to toss its lot in with the militant homosexual activists, and will encourage FB thought police to report any comments deemed to be ‘hateful’ and therefore to be censored. Thus blatant censorship

Even More Anti-Christian Bigotry

Oct 11, 2010

We live in an age in which no group or person is allowed to be offended, vilified or discriminated against – except Christians that is. It has been open season on Christianity for some time now, so the double-standards of

Dhimmitude in America

Sep 29, 2010

According to Islam, the non-Muslim (kafir) has only three options in Muslim-majority nations: conversion, death or dhimmitude. The last option amounts to living in fear as a second class citizen. It happens all over the Muslim world, but is increasingly

Separating the Sheep from the Sheep

Sep 9, 2010

No I did not get the title wrong. You are thinking of the words of Jesus in the Olivet Discourse when he spoke about the final judgment of the nations: “All the nations will be gathered before him, and he

The Left’s War against Christian Proclamation

Aug 11, 2010

Mix leftwing governments with out of control litigation, homosexual activism, and hatred of God’s truth, including his design for marriage and family, and what do you get? The end of the public proclamation of biblical Christianity. Throughout the Western world

Coming Soon To a Gulag Near You

Jul 11, 2010

All around the world homosexual activists are working overtime to silence any opposition, and make sure that dissenters are rounded up and rendered voiceless and powerless. If not jail time or fines, they will do their utmost to get people

Our Children Under Siege

Jun 27, 2010

Sadly, secular humanists seem to know what most believers don’t know: we are in a war, and the long-term outcome must always be kept in view. And the real trophy of the culture wars is our children, and our grandchildren.

Remaining Silent at Our Own Execution

May 5, 2010

In a recent post I mentioned how one especially foul-mouthed misotheist was sacked from her own newspaper. Given how atrocious she has been over the years, this decision was long overdue. But sadly, there would be plenty more such anti-Christian

More English Anti-Christian Bigotry

May 4, 2010

Will England become the first contemporary Western nation to fully criminalise Christianity? It sure seems to be heading that way. I have recorded one case after another of growing anti-Christian fanaticism in the UK. Much of it comes from the
