Just as war has been declared against the unborn, so too there is an active campaign to bump off the elderly, the infirm, and many who simply are tired of living. Thus people are at risk at all ages of
Arguably the most important moral issue of our day is the wholesale and wanton slaughter of the unborn. With some 100,000 unborn babies killed every year in Australia, and around 45-50 million a year worldwide, this is one of the
With euthanasia back on to the agenda thanks to the pro-death Greens, we need to recall the lessons of history. Without remembering the past we will be doomed to repeat its mistakes. And one of the biggest mistakes in human
It is often claimed by Islamophiles that the Muslim world contributed greatly to science and learning. As but one recent – and rather silly – example, US President Obama has instructed the head of NASA to reach out to Muslims,
This is a brief bibliography on some notable books on the broad area of the environment, with subsections on climate change and population matters. What makes this list of recommended titles somewhat unique is that it is admittedly selective.
The broad issue of the relationship between science and faith, and the more particular issue of the debate over creation and evolution are of course monstrously large topics, which are quite complex, multi-layered and of course very controversial.
This is certainly the newest pro-life work to appear, and arguably among the best. It not only lays out the legal, rational, moral and philosophical case against abortion choice, but it more broadly makes the case
Just over a decade ago, one could ask whether the greatest threat to Christianity in particular and Western civilisation in general was posed by totalitarian communism or fundamentalist Islam. Illustrative of these twin threats was the
The ongoing saga of the hijab-wearing Wheaton College professor is not likely to go away anytime soon. Indeed, it seems to be escalating, with various sides becoming polarised on all this. The prof has now been suspended by the Christian
While most folks know about C. S. Lewis, not as many know about Lesslie Newbigin. Both men thought long and hard about Christianity and culture, and both are well worth quoting from here. Since Newbigin may need a bit of
There are plenty of objections which have been raised against Christianity over the centuries. One common complaint is that the history of Christian missions is really the history of oppression, imperialism, chauvinism, exploitation, Eurocentrism, and ugly colonialism.
The world has rightly been shocked over revelations that big name entertainers like Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile have been found guilty of horrible child abuse crimes. But sadly this is really just the tip of the iceberg it seems.
I and others have been warning for years now that the once Christian West is quickly dissipating, with a muscular Islam easily overcoming the effeminate and spineless Christian churches. Everywhere we see Islam on the rise and Christianity on the
Just yesterday I offered three cases dating from September 10 of how the militants are destroying our freedoms – all in the name of tolerance and diversity. Well, here it is a mere 24 hours later, and now I have
Nearly a year ago a television event occurred which took the world by storm. When the episode was posted on the Internet the video clip was viewed by millions and millions of people within days. I refer to the day
It is perfectly predictable: have a politician from the conservative side of politics make a quite sensible remark about family issues, and the secular left goes absolutely ballistic. Tony Abbott’s rational comments about abstinence before marriage attracted all the usual
We are all aware of the obvious means by which Islamists are extending Islam throughout the world, and how they are attempting to establish a universal caliphate. The use of terror is a major part of jihadist expansionism. Suicide bombers
Actually this is mostly the tale of one important man. But since I have discovered many parallels with his life and my own, I will use this opportunity to tell his story, along with bits of my own. This is
It is very risky business indeed to seek to cross the atheist/materialist/Darwinist camp. If anyone dares to question the conventional wisdom here, the inquisition immediately snaps into place, the storm troopers are unleashed, and the heresy trials begin.
Dhimmitude is the condition of second class citizenship that Christians and other minorities experience when living under countries with Islamic rule. This near slavery-like condition has been amply described and documented by many. Two volumes by Bat Ye’or should be
