Is the mainstream media (MSM) biased? Well, I suppose it all depends on who you ask. If you are secular, leftwing, and into the various trendy social causes, you will probably find the media to be a paragon of objectivity.
Not a day goes by when the Christian faith is not being bashed, pilloried, mocked, attacked and dragged in the mud. It has become a full time occupation, a major sporting event, for many of our secular elite, especially in
The international feminist movement is an interesting beast. It claims to represent how women think and feel on various issues, yet it seems quite selective in the concerns it raises. Indeed, various feminist ideologies in fact war against women. Consider
The war against our children never lets up. Various activist groups are continually aiming to get our children into their less-than-healthy lifestyles. Such attempts occur at a regular pace, and it is hard to keep up with it all.
For years pro-family and pro-faith groups have been complaining about the hyper-sexualisation of society and the stealing of our young peoples’ innocence. There exists a callous industry that is happy to get rich by sexualising our kids. Young girls have
We are told that religion and politics don’t mix. But it is often the irreligious who make such claims. Secularists do not want people of faith to have any input into the political process. But given that
The recent anti-war march in Washington saw the resurrection of old Hollywood lefties still trying to maintain the rage. These included the perennial activist, “Hanoi Jane” Fonda. All the other usual suspects were there, including Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon and
Is Christmas on the way out? Well, certainly not the commercialised and consumeristic version. That is alive and well. But the real Christmas may well be under threat, and headed for oblivion, at least in the public square. We are
Much is made of the tragic problems of child abuse and child neglect. The latter can take many forms, but one of the most important, yet underrated, examples of neglect is when a child is deliberately brought into the world
I have written before about the complex relationship between faith and political involvement. And I will do so again. Here I want to address one issue, which partly reflects the situation in the US, but has relevance for Australia as
It’s amazing how many actors, rock stars and other celebrities are coming out of the woodwork to lecture us on all manner of issues of political and social importance. It seems each passing day we have people who are better
Many media outlets reported the recent remarks made by pop star Elton John. He argued that religions were by nature intolerant and bigoted, and they should be banned. Of course his main gripe was so-called homophobia. He claimed that religions
There were some very interesting comments about faith and politics made recently by a Victorian Labor MP. Health Minister Bronwyn Pike said that we all must be concerned about the sinister “influence of the religious right” in Australia. (Jason Dowling,
When radical social experiments are undertaken, it takes a while for the dust to settle and for clear assessments to be made as to how beneficial or damaging the changes have been. The current assault on marriage is a good
Welcome to the future. If you want to know where Australia is heading, just look at countries that are a few steps ahead. Consider Holland for example. Or Canada. These are two nations that have moved so far down the
Several recent events surely spell the end of the Australian Democrats. Three in particular come to mind: their electoral decline of the last few years; the announced retirement of one of their leading stars; and their continued war against religion.
There is a lot of confused thinking about the concept of separation of church and state in particular, and the role of faith in public life in general. The former is often used by secularists to insist that religion should
It is not hard to produce solid reasons as to why our school system is in need of a major overhaul. On a daily basis horror stories can be found indicting our out-of-control education system. The stranglehold of political correctness,
Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop caused quite a stir last week when she made a two-part suggestion about our education system. One, she proposed a standardised national curriculum, and two, she argued that the hegemony of left-wing ideology over our
