Chesterton and the Family

Mar 27, 2016

Islam, the Hijab, and Clueless Westerners

Jan 1, 2016

The Wheaton College professor who recently claimed that Christians and Muslims worship the same God certainly caused no small storm. It generated plenty of discussion and controversy, and the matter is certainly not yet resolved. I have already penned several

The Trans Assault on Women and Children

Nov 9, 2015

The radical sexual social engineers hate children, hate family, and hate society. And they are doing a really good job of destroying all three. In the name of bogus rights and sham science, they are unleashing a wave of terror

Marriage, the Media and Miracles

Dhimmitude, Delusion and Deception

Apr 11, 2015

That Muslims are working overtime in the West to transform our societies into Islamic outposts where everyone submits to Allah, and sharia law becomes the law of the land, is not surprising. It is happening all the time as I

Antics of the Angry God-Hating Atheists

Nov 17, 2014

Yeah, yeah, I know these guys claim there is no God. Yet they spend their entire lives complaining about and hating on this God they say does not exist. They are absolutely obsessed with and phobic about someone they insist

Bigotry, Agendas, and Guilt

Aug 11, 2014

It will come as a shock to some people, especially the secular lefties, but when someone has guilt feelings, it is usually because they are in fact guilty. So instead of just trying to deal with the superficial level of

Burqa Bans

More Scenes From the Baby-Killing Wars

Jan 9, 2014

A Desperate Julia and the Gender Wars

Jun 12, 2013

Everyone in the country knows that Julia Gillard is dead meat, and that she and her party will be ferociously booted out of office at the next election in around 94 days. But Julia still thinks she is invincible. She

Women and Islam

Nov 24, 2012

Simply put, women are treated as second-class citizens in most Muslim-majority nations. And this is not an anomaly of Islam: it fully follows from authoritative Islamic tradition. The example of Muhammad is paramount in this regard, and full justification for

The War on Mothers and Fathers

Sep 26, 2012

The push for special rights for homosexuals, including marriage and adoption rights, of necessity means the destruction of motherhood and fatherhood. Gendered parenthood, as has always been understood, is the latest casualty in this ongoing assault on children, parents, marriage,

I Hate Mothers

May 12, 2012

Well, no, I don’t – but plenty of other people seem to. But don’t take my word for it. Please watch this video. It is one of the most bizarre, ugly and reprehensible videos you will see on this Mothers’

Sweden, Sex and Sanity

May 3, 2012

This title should really be, ‘Sweden, Sex and Insanity’, but the alliteration breaks down a bit then. Insanity is however just what we are witnessing here. Sadly I have had to write about Sweden before. It has been on the
