Destroying our Daughters’ Innocence

Feb 26, 2007

For years pro-family and pro-faith groups have been complaining about the hyper-sexualisation of society and the stealing of our young peoples’ innocence. There exists a callous industry that is happy to get rich by sexualising our kids. Young girls have

It’s Time to Call Their Bluff

Sep 11, 2017

If all the ‘love, tolerance, diversity and acceptance’ of the pro-homosexual marriage camp is this bad now, just imagine how much worse things will get if and when it is legalised. Daily we find horror stories of really ugly and

Say No to Drug Injecting Rooms

Feb 6, 2017

The drug legalisation activists are ever at work to push their agenda, and any excuse will do to further bring about their aims. When reports about how people die from drug overdoses make the news, for example, they will argue

The Radical GayFL Strikes Again

Aug 1, 2016

Admittedly a more catchy title would have been something like ‘The GayFL and GayGE Doing Their Thing’. The Melbourne Age is the state’s most left-wing and pro-homosexual newspaper, but surprisingly I could not seem to find covered there a very

Time to Exit the UN
