OK, this may seem like an odd combination of topics for one article. But there is a reason for it. As you may know, on October 1 aspects of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) went into effect. Although the system
The deliberate and callous killing of innocent unborn children is without question one of the gravest moral issues of our time – perhaps the most important one. In Australia some 100,000 babies are murdered each year, with 45-50 million slaughtered
By now most of you would have heard of convicted traitor and agent provocateur Bradley Manning’s decision to spend the rest of his days in the company of women. Manning, who is a homosexual, has now decided he is not
With 45-50 million unborn babies killed every year around the world, there is plenty of bad news out there. Every baby killed is a tale of horror and woe. But there are also some good news stories here, and we
It seems at least once a year the social engineers come out of the woodwork and demand that parents no longer be able to discipline their own children. They want to turn every rap on the hand or backside into
The more controversial an issue, the more likely that common sense, rationality, and sound analysis will go right out the window. Instead, knee-jerk reactions, emotionalism, logical fallacies, and nasty attacks on the other person will become the order of the
For much of church history a rigid clergy/laity divide existed. This too often resulted in the masses believing that only a select few were really involved in the work of God. Even today we often have the disjunction between a
In the US we keep seeing the slow but steady rollback of the abortion industry. Clinics are closing, doctors are quitting or being charged with criminal offences, and pro-life legislation is being passed in various states. The most recent victory
Those who seek to justify the killing of unborn babies resort to all sorts of myths and falsehoods to make their case and assuage their conscience. They in fact have to live in a world of lies and misinformation in
I am always quite staggered at how some newspapers can pay good money to columnists who consistently dish up some of the most silly, illogical, uninformed and misleading commentary out there. They actually pay people to write such foolishness?
There are plenty of criticisms of, and objections to, the pro-life position. I have dealt with many of them over the years, and I find them easily answerable. A close look at these objections usually shows they are without much
It is quite common when discussing this topic for critics to say that Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is an ancient and widespread practice, and has nothing to do with Islam as such. Well, the critics are right about the first
The gender benders are having a field day, causing all sorts of harm and confusion. In an age in which most people have succumbed to mental and moral mushiness, it seems anything goes when it comes to human sexuality. Instead
A common reason given for why we must have legal abortion involves the so-called hard cases. One of these concerns possible birth defects or abnormalities, such as Tay-Sachs disease, sickle-cell anemia, Down’s syndrome (Mongolism), etc.
Various “hard cases” are often mentioned by the pro-abortionists as a justification for abortion. They argue that if abortion is illegal, we will have all these horrific cases taking place. Therefore abortion must always remain legal and freely available.
A bill being debated in a Senate inquiry on gender-selection abortion is most timely given the headline in today’s Sunday Herald Sun. It reads: “Couple abort girl because they wanted a boy”. Definition of barbarism: Killing a human being
As some of you may know, a Senate inquiry is now underway on the issue of sex-selection abortions. Victorian DLP Senator John Madigan last month introduced a bill which would remove Medicare funding for such abortions. That bill is now
