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

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

As new books pile up around the home, and time does not permit a proper review of each one, the next best thing is to give a number of them at least a brief mention and write-up. So here I

Taharrush, Refugees, and the Rape of the West

Jan 13, 2016

What happened in Cologne and other European cities recently was not accidental, was not unique, and was not unexpected. As I wrote earlier, this is all about rape jihad, a quite acceptable modus operandi for the political ideology known as

The Greens’ War on Christianity

Nov 13, 2015

Let’s face it: the radical secular left Greens hate conservatives and they hate Christianity. And their wrath is especially kindled against Christians who are conservatives. We see the ugly reality of this being played out in our PC kangaroo courts

Abetz: Speaking the Truth about the Media

Oct 19, 2015

The mainstream media long ago abandoned any pretence to neutrality, objectivity and even-handedness. Today you can put good money on the fact that if you are a conservative, the MSM will treat you miserably. And if you are a Christian,

Our Tolerance Censors at Work

Oct 7, 2015

As has been pointed out on these pages time and time again, it seems that those who scream the loudest about tolerance and diversity are those who are actually the least tolerant and diverse. We get this all the time
