Two six year old boys are talking together, and one says that he found a condom on a patio. The other one asks, “What’s a patio?”. This joke is indicative of the culture we now live in. The sexualisation of
There are plenty of signs of civilisational collapse. They are easy to come by. Here I want to focus on just two, and discuss a recent case in which they converged into one ugly proposition. I refer to the ongoing

I guess it had to come to this. We live in such a moonbat age that what comes out of the lips of some politicians becomes more bizarre with each passing month. Consider the recent proposal by a German politician
It seems daily we are now hearing about radical social experiments and the terrible toll they are taking on our children. These radical social upheavals are leaving devastation in their wake, and our kids are suffering big time.

David Blankenhorn is a world authority on the institution of marriage. One of the biggest debates concerning marriage today is whether we should expand the concept to include same-sex unions. Blankenhorn thinks not, and in these 300
Dumb ideas have the propensity to spawn more dumb ideas. Reckless social engineering tends to result in even more radical social changes. Give the radicals an inch and they will demand a light-year. Such is the nature of the never-ending
Coming soon to a politically correct municipality near you: mandatory punishment for using despicable and abominable language such as “marriage” and “family”. Yes, you heard it right. To merely talk about the institutions of marriage and family is well on
