The ABC’s War on Christianity

Mar 30, 2009

The acronym ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) could as easily stand for the Atheist Broadcasting Corporation. Or perhaps Anti-Biblical Christianity. It is an incredibly secular, leftist and trendy network, pushing almost all the wrong ideologies. A good case in point is

On Israel’s Right to Self-Defence

Jan 3, 2009

The mainstream media is up to its usual tricks: for three years now some 3,500 missiles have been fired by Hamas into Israeli territory. I don’t seem to recall much of this reported by the MSM. Yet now that Israel

Some Scientific Sense on Climate Change

Aug 20, 2008

Big Brothel Finally Bites the Dust

Jul 14, 2008

When there is so much bad news around, it is great to get some good news once in a while. And it doesn’t get much better than to learn that Big Brother will no longer be disgracing our small screens.

Alternative Thinking on Global Warming

The Media and Abortion

Aug 26, 2007

There are certain topics you just can’t trust the mainstream media with. Abortion is surely one of them. Whenever the MSM deals with the subject, more often than not it is a terribly biased and one-sided affair.

Who Says the Media is Biased?

Those on the left seldom accuse the mainstream media of bias, for the simple reason that the left pretty well dominates the MSM. When non-lefties make accusations of bias, our concerns are of course quickly shrugged off. But what happens

Real Help for Aboriginals

Jun 30, 2007

If someone supports John Howard, then surely he is a racist, right-wing redneck who is completely biased and should be absolutely rejected. Or so argues much of the liberal/left and the mainstream media. So what do you do when a

The Family Obliterated

Jun 21, 2007

We live in strange times. So persistent and insistent have been the various radical minority groups, that increasingly we are living in an Alice in Wonderland world. Readers will recall this exchange between Humpty Dumpty and Alice:

Faith, Unbelief and the Media

Jun 19, 2007

A number of studies have been conducted over the years demonstrating that those in the mainstream media tend to be very much of the left when it comes to politics, and very secular when it comes to matters of belief.
