How Not To Think about IVF and Abortion

Thank You Parliamentary Champs

Terrific News in the Culture Wars

Dec 6, 2016

An early Christmas present has just come our way, and it is worth publicising and celebrating. In the culture wars you win some and lose some. It seems like we are losing more often than winning. Thus it is fantastic

Banning Real Help for Those Seeking Change

The Victorian government recently passed a bill which would ban those seeking to provide help for those who want to deal with their unwanted same-sex attractions. This dangerous bill would likely have escaped the attention of most folks, but the

Crime and (No) Punishment

Nov 21, 2016

Law without consequence is mere advice. And throughout much of the West we see this being played out: law and order is on the decline while crime is on the increase. Also on the decline is punishment. Instead of dealing

Ban the Bible – And Those Who Read It

Nov 6, 2016

The Bible has often been banned or strictly censured in the past – and even in many places today. Simply think of most Communist and Muslim countries, past and present. The Word of God is always anathema to the powers

Islam, Child Brides, and the West

Oct 31, 2016

Courageous Women Standing Up For Our Children

Oct 28, 2016

When something is really bad, it needs to be discussed – and discussed often. Thus this is my 25th article on the so-called Safe Schools Coalition. In my previous articles I have detailed the many mega-problems with this pro-homosexual indoctrination

The Challenge of Euthanasia

Oct 1, 2016

The push to legalise euthanasia continues in the West. The Benelux countries led the way with legalisation (the Netherlands, 2002; Belgium 2002; Luxembourg, 2008), and some other states and countries have followed suit since then. While euthanasia is presented as

On the Australian Marriage Plebiscite

Aug 31, 2016

Whether a national plebiscite on the redefinition of marriage in Australia ever takes place or not is now up in the air. The Senate may well block the move, as activists and leftist political parties are worried about how such

Homosexuality, Islam and Christianity

Jun 15, 2016

Homosexuality is condemned in all three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. While there are some similarities found on this issue in all three, there are also some major differences. Here I wish to focus on just one aspect of

This Slippery Slope is Going to the Dogs

Jun 10, 2016

Um, how many times do we have to say, “We told you so”? Pro-family activists have been warning for decades now that when we tamper with marriage and family, we end up on a dangerous slippery slope where anything goes.

Trans-Madness: Women and Children Last

May 21, 2016

When the West was still moral, rational, and Christian, a core principle was ‘women and children first’. But the West is no longer any of these things, so we have declared that it’s every man for himself, and women and
