The Case Against Same-Sex Marriage

Feb 19, 2012

The battle over same-sex marriage is perhaps the most momentous and far-reaching debate we face at the moment. There is very much at stake in this attempt to redefine marriage out of existence. It is a social shift which is

Some Home Truths on Valentine’s Day

Feb 14, 2012

This day is being enjoyed by many, but used as a political football by others. So it is worth looking briefly at what it was originally all about, and then focus on some contemporary issues. As with so many Christian

Sexual Insanity

Feb 6, 2012

When a society starts to hit rock bottom, you can be sure that sexual anarchy was a big part of the chain of events leading up to it. When immorality skyrockets, then societies plummet. When people start going over the

But We Told You So

Dec 10, 2011

So, do you know what ‘compersion’ means? Do you know what a ‘vee’ is? Are you up on your ‘NRE’s? If not, you had better get up to speed real quick, because this is the future, and the future is

More Madness from Our Elites

Nov 2, 2011

Leave it to our academics to come up with more mindless and amoral foolishness. Our ruling elites are becoming more reckless and absurd each passing day. And we as a society have to pay the price for their radical social

Time For More Sexual Perversion

Aug 24, 2011

Now that the radicals have wrapped up one agenda item, they can easily and quickly move on to the next items. With the homosexual agenda basically well and truly realised throughout the Western world, the social revolutionaries can now turn

In Praise of Incest

Dec 15, 2010

I know it can be grating to say, “I told you so”. But sometimes that is simply the case. For years now I have been telling you that once we go down the road of legalising same-sex marriage, then the

Christian Adultery Conference

Dec 14, 2010

Allow me to take a few liberties here, with explanation to follow. But an upcoming conference should be on every Christian’s calendar. It looks to be a terrific event, with some noted Christian speakers as well. This is how the

Three Cheers for Polyamory

Dec 8, 2010

Don’t you just love it when the other side makes your case for you? I sure do. The other side always seeks to shoot you down when you spill the beans about what they are up to. But when people

Time For Some Real Marriage Equality

Nov 29, 2010

Now that lesbian Penny Wong has challenged her own leader and declared her support for same-sex marriage, I would like to ask her and all other such supporters why she does not really believe in full marriage equality. I would

Homosexual Marriage and the Slippery Slope

Nov 22, 2010

The headline in yesterday’s Vancouver Sun says it all: “Polygamy reference case could open door to legalizing multiple marriage”. The short reply is, ‘And why not? If we are happy to redefine marriage out of existence with homosexual marriage, then

Marriage and a Manipulative Media

Jul 5, 2010

The mainstream media today does not cover news – it creates news. The MSM does not report the news – it determines what’s news. It does not strive for objectivity and neutrality – it pushes agendas. The MSM does not

Destroying Marriage

May 12, 2010

The oxymoronic attempt to legalise same-sex marriage is a recipe for disaster. But don’t take my word for it. Indeed, don’t listen to anyone on this issue but the homosexual militants themselves. They are the ones who are proudly proclaiming

Islam and Polygamy

Oct 5, 2009

I have been utterly amazed to discover that a major newspaper recently carried an opinion piece by a Muslim spokesman advocating polygamy in Australia. If a Christian were to write an article suggesting something equally bizarre, it would never see

More Celebrity Zingers

Apr 25, 2009

Hollywood celebs, pop stars and other movers and shakers in popular culture are not always known for their brilliance and depth of intellect. They are not exactly known for their high moral standards either. But given their huge fan bases,

Sliding Toward Polyamory

Jul 22, 2008

Polyamory has gone big time. There are magazines and journals devoted to it, societies founded to further it, conferences held around the world to discuss it, and countless organisations in existence to promote and defend it. In case you are

Muslim Polygamy in Australia

Jun 25, 2008

An Australian Islamic leader has announced that polygamous marriages should be recognised by the Australian government. Keysar Trad from the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia said that polygamous relationships in the Muslim community should be legalised. He said this would

Marching with the 10 Rebs

Mar 2, 2008

OK, now that I have everyone absolutely flummoxed by my cryptic title, let me say it is a send up on the 100 Revs which I wrote about in an earlier post. The 100 Revs were supposed to be 100

A review of One Man, One Woman. By Dale O’Leary.

Sep 22, 2007

Sophia Institute Press, 2007.

This book seeks to do two things: affirm the traditional understanding of heterosexual marriage, and challenge the homosexual offensive. Of course the two go together. There is probably no greater threat to the institutions of marriage
