Law, Licence and Lunacy

Dec 18, 2012

The Case against Heroin Injecting Rooms

Dec 10, 2012

The so-called harm-minimisation crowd is at it again. Recently we have had yet another call for medically-supervised heroin injecting rooms in Australia. One such proposal is for Footscray in Melbourne’s west. The claim is that this will save lives and

Surrogacy: Greed and Need

Dec 5, 2012

The desire for children is normal and healthy. But the willingness to use any means available to have children is not always so healthy – for all those involved.  In an age of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART), we have

World AIDS Day

Dec 1, 2012

In case you did not realise it, today is World AIDS Day. HIV/AIDS is certainly a massive problem, but in the West at least, we have managed to make it worse, by making it a PC disease. Indeed, in the

Making Money By Killing People

Nov 3, 2012

The merchants of death can talk all they like about choice, or compassion, or care, but at the end of the day, a major thing driving them is money. Whether it is the killers in the abortion mills making money,

The Ongoing Assault on Our Children

Sep 28, 2012

“Let’s treat our children like dirt.” Now if someone actually said that we would all be up in arms. So it is not being said, but it nonetheless is exactly what is happening. It is clear that so much of

Hated For Speaking the Truth

Sep 6, 2012

One thing you can absolutely count on in today’s PC world: if you dare to stand up and proclaim truth in the public arena, you will get blasted from the secular left and their stooges in the mainstream media. It

A Mentally Ill Jesus?

Aug 29, 2012

Yep, Jesus may have been a nutter. At least one enlightened rev thinks so. An English woman has made the claim that not only Jesus, but all sorts of biblical heroes, such as John the Baptist and the Apostle Paul,

“Eye Has Not Seen…”

Aug 10, 2012

In 1 Corinthians 2:9 we read these words: “As it is written, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him’.” Paul is quoting Isaiah 64:4. The closing

When Aid Money Means Killing Money

Jul 15, 2012

Simply giving money to various “good” causes is not itself always necessarily virtuous. In fact, it may be downright harmful and evil. A lot depends on where your money is going and what it is being used for. I have

Human Haters

Jun 14, 2012

There is a radical cult of anti-humanity which has evolved, quite willing to do anything to “save the planet” – including culling millions if not billions of human beings. Plenty of radical environmentalists, earth-worshippers, and Green extremists seriously believe that

New York Mayoral Madness

Jun 6, 2012

Most people by now would have heard of the rather bizarre proposal by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to ban every sweetened drink over 16 ounces sold in public venues. In a case of the Nanny State getting bigger britches,

Stopping Leviathan

Mar 22, 2012

The greatest dangers to freedom today come from unlimited government. And communists and fascists do not have a monopoly on this. Western democratic nations are becoming just about as oppressive as the state keeps growing and growing in scope and

Australian Eugenics?

Mar 11, 2012

A major part of the eugenics agenda has always been the sterilisation of those considered to be unfit for procreating. To weed out undesirables and to create a perfect race, the selection of some for sterilisation – and worse –

Obama’s Imperial Reach and War on Faith

Feb 11, 2012

I have written before about President Obama’s attempt to erect Big Brother statism and his war on Christianity in America. And I have mentioned his most recent assault on the church, his draconian plans to tell Catholic and other health
