Keeping up with cultural decline and mental erosion has now become a full time occupation. Simply listing all the cases of Political Correctness would fill hundreds, if not thousands, of volumes. And detailing the decline of the West is a
As the West sinks into terminal decline, it becomes a fulltime job simply to chronicle each new case of madness and idiocy. The West is becoming expert at self-destruction, and the examples of its deterioration are the stuff of daily
Of the making of moonbat ideas there is no end. Every day we seem to encounter more bizarre and destructive ideas in circulation. And the mainstream media is quite happy to disseminate such foolishness. Let me focus on just one
An Australian Islamic leader has announced that polygamous marriages should be recognised by the Australian government. Keysar Trad from the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia said that polygamous relationships in the Muslim community should be legalised. He said this would
It seems the more controversial an issue is, the more sloppy the thinking and the more immoral the evaluation. Abortion is a good case in point. It is an issue immersed in convoluted and confused reasoning, and cloudy and questionable
Put together one part political correctness, one part minority group activism and intimidation, and one part infectious disease, and what do you get? The world’s first politically protected disease. Of course these sorts of things are not often said, but
Fear-mongering about the environment is not new. And using our classrooms to terrorise our kids about supposed environmental catastrophes is not new either. The people doing the terrorising may have good intentions, but they often have hidden agendas as well.
Abortion is never far from the headlines. In Victoria the VLRC released its report recommending open slather on baby-killing. And the Rudd government is considering overturning a ban on abortion services as part of its overseas aid programs.
A newspaper item today tells of two schoolboys, both aged 14, who have been charged with raping a 13-year-old girl in Brisbane. This is shocking enough, but what is even more shocking is that such occurrences are becoming almost commonplace.
Abortion law in Victoria is set to be changed. The Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC) has just released its report on ways to proceed. The 191-page report argues that there are three main options, all of which involve the decriminalisation
The Rudd Government speaks incessantly about working families. The recent Federal Budget was all about working families. Government policy is aimed at working families. So just who and what exactly are these working families?
We live in a world that has turned common sense on its head, and has inverted long-held moral values. What we used to regard as evil is now lauded as virtuous. And what was once considered to be good we
Democracy is always a precarious thing at the best of times, and the increasing rise in judicial activism is not helping matters much. Throughout the Western world we see examples of judges running amok, ignoring the will of the people
About a week ago a group of American Evangelicals released a 20-page document called “An Evangelical Manifesto”. Subtitled “A Declaration of Evangelical Identity and Public Commitment,” the document seeks to lay out basic Evangelical convictions, offer some warnings, and present
People are involved in all sorts of relationships and personal associations. They always have been, and always will be. But the question arises as to how much government and public recognition and support should be extended to various types of
After our recent gathering of experts in Canberra for the 2020 Summit, I did not recall seeing any reports about one very pressing social problem having been discussed – the breakdown of marriage and family. This issue certainly deserves our
Three recent Labor Government activities and announcements have shown that the interests of the family are really pretty low on the priority list. Sure, plenty of lip service is being paid to families, but the reality is quite different from
The issue of Muslims living in Australia is part of a bigger, broader debate about such things as multiculturalism, immigration, Australian values, the war on terror, social cohesion, and so on. The thoughts presented here largely spring from the context
One keeps wondering just how far down the gurgler society can continue to go before it fully and finally implodes on itself. The moral madness that passes for political correctness and open-mindedness is spinning out of control today. And as
When believers seek to apply biblical principles to issues of public policy, it is admittedly a complex and difficult task. We are often best advised to use general principles, and see how they might be fleshed out in the cut
