On Political Cooperation

Aug 19, 2014

My title may seem oxymoronic, and perhaps it is. But here I am speaking about cooperation amongst Christian political parties. I realise putting the word “Christian” in front of this phrase does not mean everything becomes sweetness and light, but

Liberal or Conservative?

May 22, 2009

I have said many times that Christianity transcends party politics and political ideology. Thus my faith is more important and vital than my political allegiances. Having said that, however, it is also true that we are called to live out

Palin and Worldviews

Sep 4, 2008

There are at least two clear reasons why the secular left is absolutely foaming at the mouth over Sarah Palin, John McCain’s Republican running mate. One is her worldview – it stands in complete contrast to the worldview of the

McLaren and Obama: Not So Strange Bedfellows

Oct 27, 2009

Generally speaking, those with liberal theological views tend to also have liberal political views. Conversely, those with conservative theological views tend to have conservative political views. Not always, but in most cases. So religious liberals can usually be counted on

CINOs and RINOs are Both Selling Us Out

Oct 18, 2016

In my books they are pretty much the same: Christians In Name Only and Republicans In Name Only. While there are many genuine Christians who reluctantly and unenthusiastically will vote for Trump because Clinton is so bad, there are plenty

Playing Our Part in the Culture Wars

Sep 28, 2016

It seems that in the culture wars in general, and the homosexuality debates in particular, we are easily being out-spent, out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-manned. This is true in many respects. The other side is awash with funding – often taxpayer

When the Activists Turn on Their Own

Sep 6, 2016

That the radical secular left is no friend of democracy, free speech and diversity of opinion is quite clear – I document this on a regular basis. There is no room for disagreement or dissent or alternative points of view.

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

On Choosing Leaders

May 21, 2016

It has become overwhelmingly clear to me over the past few months that way too many conservatives do not seem to give a rip about core conservative principles anymore. And worse yet, way too many Christians do not seem to

Facebook Censorship Fascism

May 17, 2016

Is Facebook just a popular social media site, or is it in fact a major promoter of radical agendas and political correctness? The evidence is mounting up: FB is in bed with the homosexual and transgender activists, and other leftist

What Academic Tolerance?

May 9, 2016

That our Western universities are almost completely dominated by the secular left is something many of us have been claiming, and documenting for quite some time now. I have often written about how academic freedom, diversity of opinion, and genuine

Dismantling the Trump Myths, Part One

Mar 31, 2016

The cult of Trump has dished up more nonsense, falsehoods and flip-flops than I have seen from any recent presidential candidate. Despite the fact that Trump is a life-long progressive, and one who has supported and financed leftist and Democrat

Women in Combat Part 2

Feb 19, 2016

The issue of women in the military, and specifically, women in combat, arose again in the US Republican debates. While contenders Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie (who has since dropped out), all supported women in the military, including

Antonin Scalia, RIP

Feb 14, 2016

US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away yesterday at age 79. The conservative and intellectual heavyweight was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986 and served faithfully there for 29 years. He was the first Italian-American justice to serve
