More Outrages From the Rainbow Warriors

Sep 12, 2011

The homosexual activists never sleep, never eat, never rest – or so it seems. They are hell-bent on implementing their radical agenda, no matter who gets hurt along the way. And if children suffer as a result of their selfish

Our Censors At Work, Again

Sep 7, 2011

“Sack him! Kick him out of the Party! This is an outrage! No political party should allow such contemptible behaviour! He must be disciplined at once! Dump this creep!” Wow, so what are all these frenzied calls all about? Are

Strained Relations

Sep 4, 2011

OK, so why does a guy spend nearly 20 years working on a book which will never become a bestseller, will never make a lot of money (or even a little money), and will only result in a lot of

Two Liberation Movements

Aug 22, 2011

As I have just written elsewhere:
Liberators enter the Libyan capital to oust an inept and corrupt ruler.
Liberators enter the Australian capital to oust an inept and corrupt ruler.
I hope both groups have great success.

Of course in

Marriage Attacked and Defended

Aug 16, 2011

I am just back from another standing-room only event at Parliament House Canberra in support of marriage. Around 1000 people crammed into the Great Hall to celebrate and defend marriage against those actively warring against it.

The two-hour session featured

RupertGate

Jul 21, 2011

The world’s attention is now focused on Rupert Murdoch, his media empire, and the collapse of News of the World. The phone-hacking scandal surrounding Murdoch and News Corp is of course making front page headlines, but some hard questions

Pushing Agendas, Ignoring Facts

Jul 17, 2011

This title could well describe what we find in the mainstream media any day of the week. I have documented time after time the way the secular left in the MSM simply ignore the evidence, dismiss facts, and trample on

The ABC Should Be Put Out Of Its Misery

Jul 11, 2011

Certainly one of the most unbalanced and biased programs ever shown on Australian television was aired on – you guessed – “our” ABC last night. It appeared on the ABC ‘religion’ program Compass, and was the most appalling attempt

Why Radical Agendas are Winning

Jun 2, 2011

It seems that faith and family values are continuously under assault, and those pushing radical social engineering agendas are getting a free ride. They certainly have been quite successful at ramming through their agendas despite an often unwilling public.

Plenty

Tortured Cows and Babies

May 31, 2011

In a civilised society we want to treat animals humanely. I would like to think that we would also want to treat human beings humanely as well. But that is not always the case. A new TV documentary has aroused

Where is Marriage Headed?

Feb 8, 2011

If you only go by what the activists, and much of the mainstream media, are saying you could be forgiven for thinking that the whole world is wildly in favour of same-sex marriage, and that most of the world has

Why Does The Age Hate Christianity?

Dec 20, 2010

Leave it to the secular militants at the Melbourne Age to feature not one but two opinion pieces at Christmas time by atheists telling us we don’t need Jesus to enjoy Christmas! Imagine that. One piece is just not enough,

Modern Culture and Deadly Entertainment

Oct 31, 2010

When Neil Postman wrote his 1985 book, Amusing Ourselves to Death, he may not have known just how literal his warnings would prove to be. For those unfamiliar with this landmark book, it was about how the electronic media,

Marriage and a Manipulative Media

Jul 5, 2010

The mainstream media today does not cover news – it creates news. The MSM does not report the news – it determines what’s news. It does not strive for objectivity and neutrality – it pushes agendas. The MSM does not

Terrorism, the Media, and Israel

Jun 2, 2010

Here we go again: more “peace activists” – complete with knives, iron rods, and clubs. It all takes me back to my radical student days, when I too was a “peace activist”. Indeed, those of us in the New Left

Remaining Silent at Our Own Execution

May 5, 2010

In a recent post I mentioned how one especially foul-mouthed misotheist was sacked from her own newspaper. Given how atrocious she has been over the years, this decision was long overdue. But sadly, there would be plenty more such anti-Christian
