Responding to the Islamisation of the West

Dec 27, 2017

Throughout much of the West major cities have large concrete blocks placed around high-traffic pedestrian areas. So what is that all about? Works of modern art? Not quite – they are security bollards. Security from what? Well, sadly, from basically

Jesus Was Not a Refugee

Dec 26, 2017

It has become routine at this time of the year for activists, social justice warriors, religious leftists and others to seek to politicise the Christmas story. Instead of simply rejoicing in the Incarnation and the arrival of the Messiah, many

Melbourne Terrorism and Truth Denial

Dec 22, 2017

As I said at the end of my article yesterday about the latest terror attack in Melbourne, it is interesting how it always seems to boil down to one common factor: no, not Islam, but mental illness! This is the

The Paris Statement

Oct 17, 2017

Europe is in a real bad way. Secularism, immorality, porous borders, an inability to understand Islam for what it is, the rapid decline of Christianity, a loss of purpose and identity – these and other factors have resulted in a

Faith in Australia, and the Way Forward

Jun 27, 2017

The spiritual and religious makeup of a nation is not determined solely by a national census, but it can give us at least some rough ideas nonetheless. The results of the 2016 census are slowly being released, and today we

Wilders, the Dutch, and the Future of Europe

Mar 18, 2017

Times are a changing. After Brexit and Trump – two unexpected victories – other countries are now looking at radical political and social turnarounds. This is especially the case in Europe. We had one election there this week, and we

Some Sanity on the US Entry Restrictions

Feb 2, 2017

The lunar left has gone ballistic over the recent executive order of the Trump administration to restrict in very limited ways various arrivals into the US. You would have thought that he bombed Mecca, declared Islam to be a verboten

Leftists Politicising Our Schools

Dec 19, 2016

That the Australian education system is a hotbed of radical leftist political ideology and propaganda should surprise no one. This of course has been happening for decades now and I have been documenting this for decades now.

For example, almost

Trump, the Pope, and Walls

Feb 20, 2016

I am no fan of Donald Trump. But I must say I am no fan of the current Pope either. It seems each passing day they both come out saying some quite ridiculous and foolish things. And don’t accuse me

Europe, Refugees and Chaos

Feb 11, 2016

Europe is in a mess. Many think it is on the verge of major crisis, if not collapse, unless something is done quickly. With failed immigration policies, misplaced multiculturalism, and politically correct self-loathing, there is not a day that goes

Multiculturalism Kills

Jan 15, 2016

We are seeing a lot of death, carnage and destruction in Europe and other parts of the West at the moment. You can put this down to two main causes: a resurgent and demonic Islam, and a demoralised and PC

Civil War in Europe?

Jan 10, 2016

Plenty of people are now asking, ‘Whither Europe?’ It has been in serious trouble for decades now, and with the twin problems of Christianity in decline and Islam in the ascendency, the situation continues to further deteriorate. Mistaken policies of

Islam, Refugees, and Clueless Christians

Dec 15, 2015

There is always a danger of supplanting biblical Christianity with the latest political agendas and ideologies. I see this so often with Christians uncritically absorbing all the latest secular left nonsense. They just end up as rabid secular lefties with

Clear Thinking on Paris and Islam

Nov 15, 2015

I am angry – really angry. Angry at the Islamic terror attacks in Paris? Yes, of course. But I am also absolutely outraged at the lamestream media and its despicable coverage of this tragic affair. I spent most of Sunday

Paris In Flames – Again

Nov 14, 2015

Not just Paris, but much of France is now in lockdown, and even places like neighbouring Belgium. Travel has been curtailed, borders closed, and panic reigns on the streets of Paris and beyond. A series of coordinated attacks around the

Cluelessness is Not Next To Godliness

Nov 3, 2015

Tragically far too many believers seem to glide through life completely oblivious to the various wars and battles we are in, the array of enemies encircling us, and the ever increasing anti-Christian bigotry in the West. Everywhere the faith is
