Disney’s Rainbow Activism

Mar 21, 2017

About the only thing worse than rabid anti-Christian bigotry is all the clueless Christians who do not know or care about it. There are so many believers who have their heads in the sand – they are totally oblivious to

Wilders, the Dutch, and the Future of Europe

Children, Mums, Dads and the Gender Benders

Mar 16, 2017

That the trans revolution is causing massive devastation to countless families and children, as well as to society and culture as a whole, is something I have now documented numerous times. So too have many others. But our concerns are

Beer, Bibles, Bullies and Bigotry

Mar 15, 2017

If anything is absolutely crystal clear by now, it is this: those who scream the most about diversity, acceptance and tolerance are the most intolerant folks around. The secular left in general and the militant homosexual lobby in particular are

Ours is Not a Likeable, Sissified Faith

Mar 14, 2017

Call them what you will: evangellyfish, spineless wonders, cowards, wimps for Jesus, churchians, adherents to the gospel of nice, and so on, but they are all around us. And I have written often about these believers: those who shy away

No, God is Not Transgender

Mar 12, 2017

Telling lies about God and what God’s Word says is a common practice of those who seek to justify their rebellion and sin. Sadly, we do not just have individuals doing this, or even just churches, but entire denominations. Consider

Blatant Hypocrisy in the Culture Wars

Mar 9, 2017

Now this really bothered me when I saw it, and I would think that any fair-minded person would be equally upset – upset at the appalling double standards and rank hypocrisy. And I am absolutely dumbfounded at this clear case

Clueless Christian Peaceniks

Mar 3, 2017

The Ongoing War on the Gospel

Four Important New Australian Books

Feb 28, 2017

Of the making of many books there is no end, or so the writer of Ecclesiastes said (Ecc. 12:12). I think he was on to something there. New books are pouring from the presses all the time, and some at

Great Pro-Life Win in Queensland

Feb 28, 2017

The battles over life are ever being fought. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. But a big victory has just occurred in Queensland. It does not mean that the abortion wars there are now over, but it does mean

I am Praying for Milo

Feb 21, 2017

I just finished saying elsewhere that I have written three articles on the controversial conservative, homosexual firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos thus far, and I don’t intend on doing any more. OK, so I have had a change of heart. The main

On Homosexual Conservatism

Feb 19, 2017

We increasingly find the homosexual movement hopping into bed with the conservative movement. Some conservatives think that this is a good thing. I am not so sure. While it is good to have conservative allies of various stripes, are we

Feb 19, 2017

A leading figure in the abortion wars – on both sides – has just passed away. Norma McCorvey was the “Jane Roe” of the 1973 American abortion decision, Roe v Wade. Later she became a Christian and worked tirelessly on
